|Abstract:||Craigavon Hospital was the designated Covid19 centre for the Southern Trust in NI (pop. 380,000). A comprehensive database of all admissions was set up by furloughed medical students & we have analysed the figures up until the 30th June.|
Demographics: 217 patients required inpatient care (122male) with mean age 62.8 (M=F). 63 (29%) of patients were non-NI born with a mean age of 48.4 vs. 68.8 for NI born (p<0.001).
Length of stay was significantly lower for minority groups (8.74 vs 11.9 days) and for females (9.4 vs 12.4). 10 of the minority cohort were diabetic (Type 2) compared to 36 of the NI group (1 minority vs 3 NI T1DM). 25 ICU admissions were documented (10 non-NI born)
Outcomes: 39 (36NI) deaths occurred within 30 days of admission (8 in ICU) with 31 on the Respiratory wards (8 on NIV). Relative mortality for the minority group was 0.048 vs. 0.23 for NI born (0.33 for NI males)
