The Intensive Care Units had been on the verge of breaking point
The number of admissions of Coronavirus patients in Groningen’s Intensive Care Units has fallen in the past four days, according to figures from the Acute Care Network Northern Netherlands (AZNN). As reported by OOGTV.
The number of admissions to IC’s in the province fell by two patients since Tuesday morning, and in total, the ICs are now treating 28 patients. Nineteen of these patients are in the UMCG. Last Tuesday, the Groningen ICs hosted 30 patients, and a week ago there were 32.
The less-intensive nursing wards for COVID patients in Groningen hospitals showed a marginal increase in the number of admissions (from 47 to 49) in the past four days. This number has been fairly stable for some time.
Less pressure on IC’s in Friesland and Drenthe,too
In the three Northern provinces, 67 Coronavirus patients were being treated in Intensive Care Units on Friday morning. On Tuesday there were 70.
There was also a marginal decline in the number of COVID patients in less-intensive wards: 115 (four fewer than Tuesday morning).
Of the total of 182 Coronavirus patients admitted to hospitals in the Northern Netherlands, 47 came from outside of the region. Of this group, 25 are being treated in an ICU.
