In north east London we have been working with all our health and care partners during the pandemic to continue to provide high quality care for everyone whether this has been caring for people with coronavirus or providing safe and responsive services for everyone else who needs to use our services.
Most people infected with the Covid-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. However, many vulnerable people, such as older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to require hospitalisation or, in some instances, die if diagnosed with Covid-19.
As of March 2021, over 125,000 people in the UK have died due to coronavirus.
