HOSPITAL bosses have today confirmed relatively low numbers of people in the DGH with Covid.

Last night the Bexhill and Battle MP Huw Merriman claimed there are only 20 people in hospital with covid across the East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust. That covers the DGH and Hastings.

The Trust has said today those figures are ‘broadly right which is a long way off the peak we saw in April/May.’

This will add to the questioning of whether there should be a national lockdown when our figures are so low.
