Patient numbers way down at Canberra Hospital

Category: Capital Radio News

There's been a huge decline in the number of patients presenting at Canberra Hospital, as people avoid the emergency department during the COVID-19 pandemic.

New figures show that during the height of new virus cases in Canberra there was a 40 per cent drop in the number of people presenting to the hospital's emergency department.

Executive director of critical care Lisa Gilmore has attributed the drop in a numbers to different factors, including fewer car accidents and sporting injuries due to lockdown measures.
