- Patients with diabetes hospitalised with COVID-19 at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW) NHS Trust used flash glucose monitors as inpatients rather than traditional methods
- This approach was evaluated by researchers from WMG at the University of Warwick and University Hospitals Coventry and Warwick NHS Trust
- Patients who used the non-invasive skin monitors were adequately cared for and freed up resources making the care and monitoring of the high-risk patients more efficient
The early pandemic paradox: fewer deaths in the first 4 months from December 2019 to March 2020 compared to the previous 5 years
An analysis of national weekly mortality rates between December 2019 – March 2020, compared to the same period for the previous five years, by researchers at WMG and WMS, University of Warwick, has shown that there have been fewer deaths registered this year during the lead up to the Covid-19 pandemic. Researchers have called this the SARS-CoV-2 Paradox - which could be due to early social distancing measures.
