Study shows COVID-19 ICU survival rates are improving

A new study published in the medical journal Anaesthesia found that the survival rates for COVID-19 patients admitted to the ICU have significantly improved since the beginning of the pandemic.

Treatments for the disease caused by the novel virus were largely experimental and supportive at the beginning of the outbreak, but according to researchers, the decrease in mortality rate is due in part to better hospital care.

The study analyzed the results of 24 other studies that involved more than 10,000 patients across Asia, Europe, and North America.

 

The Blaze reported on Thursday:

The research, led by Professor Tim Cook of England’s Royal United Hospitals Bath, revealed that the overall mortality rate of coronavirus ICU patients fell from approximately 60 percent since the end of March to 42 percent by the end of May.

This is huge news, and of course the mainstream media won’t report it because it would reduce the fear of the virus in the general public.

Cook explained that “rapid learning that has taken place on a global scale due to the prompt publication of clinical reports early in the pandemic” has improved care and outcomes for COVID-19 patients over time.

He also cited that efforts to relieve pressure on ICUs and providers could be another factor in improving care of COVID-19 patients.

“Optimistically, as the pandemic progresses, we may be coping better with COVID-19,” Cook and the study’s other authors concluded. 

“The important message, however, is that as the pandemic has progressed and all these factors combine, survival of patients admitted to ICU with COVID-19 has significantly improved,” the study added.

  1. I’M TELLING YOU PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID THAT WE WOULD FIND A CURE VERY SOON TRUMP 2020 VOTE REPUBLICAN.

  3. Why are those of us who have tested NEGATIVE to COVID-19 not reported to offset the positive results as well as the recovered??? I’d rather see the whole picture….not just part of it.

    1. And I would like to see the “before” and “after” numbers and not %’s.
      They can make something small appear to be large, like if the starting
      number is one and they report a 100% increase that means the actual
      increase was, (drum roll), ………….
      ONE! …. right?

      1. We who are smart enough to realized the numbers game are not taking the reports at there face value.

      2. Yes..it irks me that lots of these numbers are being magnified..know a story that lets me know they are given incentives to say it was vivid..but they had other serious he although issues…blamed on the COVID

  4. AZ has been hard hit state. There are lines daily to be tested. If it takes 2-3 for the person to get his/her results then how can the daily numbers (except for those dying) be accurate. We have 125,000 postive cases out a population o f 7.9 million. Not everyone who tests positive is sick enough to go to the hospital. Some have no symptoms. Yet people are awaiting in line in their cars for 8-10 hours to get tested. (Adding to the pollution and bad air problems).

  5. I posted a meme on FB to give people hope. It was survivability from COVID-19 of showing ten countries including the U.S. nThe U.S. had 99.983%! (many other countries did nearly as good)
    FB’s so-called “Independent” fact checkers said “FALSE.” My FB erupted, my millennial daughter saying, “Sorry, Mom you got flagged for fake news!” I then posted actual fatality rate of those with symptoms, with a CDC link, which was close to the same and replied to her, “But this is from the CDC!” The next day I opened what fact-checkers had to say: “Slightly” optimistic: 98.7% BIG WHOOP! A measly one percent difference. Positive cases fraudulently claimed as near 98%, when they were 9.6% (not a “mistake”–this is fraud and corruption). Who was the source for fact-check? The U of WA IHME (same group who predicted 2.2 Million U.S. death–wildly off (later predicted 200 Million). Their coding was way, way off. And they’re to be trusted now?!

    1. Forgot to include that the “positive” test cases above refer to the state of Florida. July 15 we learned that 30 labs in Florida from 450 testing sites. (Local Fox news station TV20 investigated: were told that no negative cases were sent to CDC (claimed they have not been required to report their negative tests) but adds they are now working with the Florida Department of Health to have all results reported.

      According to their internal calculations, their positivity rate is around 5 percent. 5 percent, not 100% or 98%!!!!

    2. i personally don’t trust all these so called fact checkers because of exactly what happened to YOU! I have done the same thing, found facts, put them on FB and ended being blasted for fake news! Really? The numbers are constantly changing due to various agencies changing theirs. All these so called experts simply don’t know how to run a simple ledger. Positive- – negative – -hospitalized – — recovered – –deaths — – Maybe they all need an abacus?

  6. Calif. does not report the number of regular flu cases apart from the of co-19 cases. San Diego county usually has 100 –125 flu cases each year and they usually do not report the number of regular flu deaths. So we are left not knowing the truth about San Diego flu deaths.

  7. what is the problem. I posted two comments previously and they disappeared. Why? This is not the first time either.

    1. Well, James, It’s more than likely that you said something the may have offended some indigenous person halfway around the world living in a grass hut, without electricity, internet, or even a newspaper. You dirty dog you. (Don’t get offended, it was just sarcasm.) The reason is that you likely said something that offended someone somewhere. That’s usually how it works or (Gasp)…………………you offended a liberal. It doesn’t take much to melt a snowflake.

  8. How can anyone not believe that increasing the number of COVID-19 deaths may create an avenue for states to receive a larger portion of federal dollars. Already some states are complaining that they are not getting enough of the CARES Act dollars because they are having significantly more proportional COVID-19 deaths.”
    “Hospital administrators might well want to see COVID-19 attached to a discharge summary or a death certificate. Why? Because if it’s a straightforward, garden-variety pneumonia that a person is admitted to the hospital for – if they’re Medicare – typically, the diagnosis-related group lump sum payment would be $5,000. But if it’s COVID-19 pneumonia, then it’s $13,000, and if that COVID-19 pneumonia patient ends up on a ventilator, it goes up to $39,000.”Quotes above; Senator Scott Jensen

  9. They ought to be since they were a lie to begin with . Loaded for money and making President trump look bad.as usual . Playing right in to china’s ,obama’s and soro’s hands . doesn’t surprise me one bit democraps ,it your speed lie and more lies .
