COVID-19 has damaged thousands of peoples lives around the UK. Infections are rising rapidly and ICU beds are filling up quickly. This isn’t great news for the UK as we needed to keep the virus under control. Boris Johnson hasn’t followed our Wales & Scotland counter parts in implementing a ‘circuit break’ lockdown, this where the area goes into lockdown for a small period of time. This has been put in place to get the virus under control. The government have gone for a tiered system where restrictions differ around the country. The main focus across the UK is to look after the NHS and ensure that our health service doesn’t get overwhelmed.
Why is Separation Important in Hospitals?
Separation is crucial in hospitals because the virus can spread quickly in environments where COVID-19 patients are being treated in the same environment. The hospital also has patients that have a low immune system e.g. cancer patients. Separating walk in patients and visitors and patients is key in stopping the spread of the virus. Hospitals can ensure that the social distancing is being adhered to through using partitions.
