12 new patients were taken in over the weekend
The number of Coronavirus patients in Groningen hospitals has risen sharply this weekend, with twelve more patients taken into hospitals. The number of IC admissions decreased by two this weekend, too, says the Acute Care Network Northern Netherlands.
A total of 79 Coronavirus patients are now in one of the Groninger hospitals, 24 of whom are in an IC unit.
The number of IC patients has differed slightly over the past two weeks. On 11 January there were still 21 patients in the ICU, according to the ACNN figures, reports the GIC.
There are now 55 patients in a regular Coronavirus ward: on Friday there were 43. On January 11, 71 patients were in a non-IC bed, signaling a general longer term easing of the strain on hospitals in Groningen.
Across the North
195 Coronavirus patients are now in a hospital across the North. Of these, 38 have been transported from another region (19 percent). On January 11, 224 patients were in a Northern hospital, with 70 patients from another region (31 percent). Notably, it seems that more patients in Northern hospitals are now from the North.
