Whether they died with or of is immaterial. The fact is Covid had a drastic effect on their health to the point of it costing their lives ultimately. I would hope those who would give their lives on the front lines in other services, recognise the sacrifices of those on this front line.

respect-full tributes are always appropriate.

Wars have always been caused by/ won and lost by a huge number of variables. So things like, Poliical will and unity of purpose, food and water security, population health, critical infrastructure ( road,rail,ports, airfields), industrial capacity, wealth generation ( taxation) and technology have all been factors in which nations won and which nations lost.… Read more »

Thank you George it’s worth remembering this is not just a disease of the frail elderly, but is a potential threat to anyone ( just to a lesser degree). i think it’s also worth noting that like anyone seeing very traumatic events over and over, healthcare worker very often leave large pieces of themselves behind. Although it has been heightened by the pandemic, PTSD and mental health problems are ever present and what you experience day in day out over years is always in your mind eye in such a vivid way that is hard to explain. health care professionals… Read more »

It’s highly likely that most of these people did not actually contract covid-19 at work or at a much higher rate than other professions. There are a lot of people working for the NHS. It’s disturbing how young they were.

Just simple averages, what’s yours based on? Why wouldn’t they contract covid-19 at a similar rate to the rest of the public?
I fully appreciate the efforts of the the medical and care professionals in what must be a very demanding and unpleasant, and possibly slightly more risky task, but you are giving a misleading impression. I certainly don’t want to unnecessarily frighten them, especially as I might need them.

So you agree with me then. I am not a statistician, so it’s hard to filter out the effect of age, but 1.5 million people work for the NHS, so it’s obvious that the rate of death is not particularly high. Also these people use PPE at work, unlike the general public.
I would be delighted if you could provide corrected data instead of frightening people.

OK, so here we go. National records Scotland October figures, 10.3 covid-19 deaths per 100000 working people aged 20-64, multiply by 15=154.5.
Factory workers are twice as likely to die of covid19.
No significant difference for social care workers.
The figures are very complex, but why would NHS workers be immune?

Reply to  Grubbie

A couple of points. large numbers NHS staff are contracting Covid 19 in their working environment. This is an indisputable fact, take it from the horses mouth. One issue is that NHS staff tend to come into contact with greater viral loads than your average joe, this is thought to be a determining factor in serious outcomes. It’s why we saw a number of ENT surgeons become very ill. Another is that PPE that almost all staff have access to is no more effective than the PPE that the public use in Asda. That is a standard fluid repellent surgical… Read more »

I don’t doubt that NHS staff are contracting covid-19 at work or that there have been big problems with PPE, particularly in the early days.
But, the facts are that the rate is slightly higher than the average worker and a lot lower than a lot of other professions. It’s impossible to prove where people actually became infected, but it’s difficult to believe that NHS workers don’t pick up infections in the same way as other people,mainly such as shopping, commuting and general social interaction.

Sorry mate but you are wrong I am an ex ICU nurse and still working in a front line role. Most of these people died because they were exposed to a high viral load from infected patients which means they received a large dose of virus and were predisposed to the worse effects of the virus for some reason that seems to affect people from a BAME background more. Recent studies have found the virus in 50% in hospital toilets and corridors. The PPE is not 100% effective probably only 70%. It is possible to find where many people become… Read more »

Sorry mate, but I did provide facts (above) , look it up for yourself, National Records Scotland.
You, on the other hand are just relying on belief. Why do you want the death rate to be significantly higher than the general public? I am not trying to diminish it or inflate it, why would I? Why would you think that NHS workers wouldn’t get infected in the same way as everyone else?

here are some facts from the BMJ not the Daily Record What are the new findings? Healthcare workers had a more than seven-fold higher risk of severe COVID-19; those working in social care and transport occupations had a two-fold higher risk. Adjusting for potential confounding and mediating variables did not fully account for the differences in the observed risk among most occupational groups. Non-white essential workers had the highest risk of severe COVID-19 infection. How might this impact on policy or clinical practice in the foreseeable future? Our findings reinforce the need for adequate health and safety arrangements and provision… Read more »

So is the death rate higher in the nhs than it is in the public domain ?

It is if you are BAME in origin. (HSJ data and look at the pictures of the people above) On the whole it is hard to say with certainty, but the more you are exposed to the virus the more likely you are to suffer serious illness as a result and the hospital domain is a reservoir of the virus.

In Sept 2020, according to the NHS workforce statistics there were 1,164,729 full time employees. The article above states 200 NHS workers have lost their lives. That is a mortality rate of 171/million. The UK has lost 69,625. That represents a mortality rate of 1046/million. Put another way the NHS mortality rate is 83.7% lower than that of the UK population as a whole.

Actually its more like 600+ staff have died not only from the virus directly but also associated things like strokes etc (certainly the case in my Trust). According to the Office for National Statistics a total of 625 health and social care workers’ deaths across England and Wales have been linked to coronavirus up to 20 July, with an almost equal split between the two sectors. In total 370 women have died, compared to 255 men. Male healthcare workers had a higher mortality rate than the general population, with a rate of 34 deaths per 100,000 people, compared with 22 deaths in… Read more »

That’s absolutely fair.. I was prompted to work out the basic mortality rates because the number of 200 seemed ridiculously low. Using the 625 deaths provides a mortality rate of 536 / million, which is still below the 1046/m for the general population. But what I really wanted to show was just quoting basic stats for the NHS as a whole is not just meaningless rubbish but may lead to deliberate a manipulation to promote a political agenda or more importantly may prevent the recognition of signficant problems. Although the mortality rate for the NHS is lower than the general… Read more »

Fair enough mate you are right there is far too much political spin added into this. Whether its Cummings going for a car ride to test his eyesight to how we count PPE (ie; one glove counted as 1 item of PPE). What is worse is that there is no foresight only short term reactionary decision making. They knew we would have a vaccine sometime soon but where is the infrastructure to deliver it. This could have been planned well in advance and steps taken, for make no mistake vaxing everyone is the only way forward right now and for… Read more »

Terrible list. So many more people left behind. It does seem that most of these poor people died between March and May. Given that the NHS has said that higher death rates in the first wave, as opposed to the second, were because treatment has improved, not because the second wave was less deadly, isn’t it likely that many of these people did not need to die? Once the NHS moved away from ventilating, isolating and sedating respiratory patients survival rates improved considerably. There needs to be an enquiry into why so many people were killed by NHS treatment protocols.

Yes lets blame those doctors, scientists and nurses that did their best in an appalling situation. Covid 19 is a virus that came out of nowhere and acted unlike any other flu virus. Of course there is a learning curve and it was a pretty quick one. As in other pandemics the second wave is always worse than the first and the government had the summer to ensure we had enough ICU beds and staff trained and repurposed to help out and provide a reasonable standard of care. Instead we have empty Nightingale hospitals with no one to staff them… Read more »

I’m not blaming anyone. But it does nothing to honour their memory if instead of analysing why they died, we glory in their deaths and allow them to distract us from the truth, whatever that may be.
