Are we getting better at treating COVID-19?
Bulletin 51 | John Roberts and Matthew Edwards
Comparing COVID-19 deaths against hospital admissions shows that the in-hospital mortality of COVID-19 patients roughly halved from April to June. We discuss the possible drivers for this, and conclude that the improvement comes from a combination of hard-earned understanding leading to better treatment, and better staff-to-patient ratios. This great improvement will, we hope, help in any second wave.
