UK Hospitals Can Ease Covid-19 Rules to Treat More Patients


According to the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA), the hospitals in the United Kingdom have been given the approval for easing some of the novel corona virus infection control measures that have been in the place during the novel corona virus pandemic.

These changes, that have been recommended by the Health Security Agency of United Kingdom have been aiming at easing the pressure on the UK NHS, and the agency also said that, the testing and isolation of the patients before the planned operations can possibly be dropped and the hospitals can possibly return to normal by cleaning the procedures, and the social distancing measures can also be decreased from 2 metres to 1 metre in some areas of the hospitals.

Over 5 million people of the country has been waiting for the UK NHS hospital treatment in the country and hundreds of thousands of the people have been waiting for more than a year. However, the government of the United Kingdom has announced an extra 5.4 billion pounds of the funds over the next six months for the purpose of responding to the backlog that has been caused by the novel corona virus pandemic, and the ministers have been warned that, the waiting lists can possibly get worse before they get better, as a greater number of people have come forward.
