Please supply the following information:

For the period 30 Dec ember 2020 to 8 June 2021 I would like the exact figure of  how many people died in Jersey General Hospital where the cause was only from Covid-19 alone and not anything else?

I can see figures you published but they are deaths within 28 days of a positive Covid-19 test so they could’ve died from other causes.


The ‘Cause of Death’ section on a death registration consists of four sections (1a, 1b, 1c and 2) for conditions which together present a narrative of the person’s state of health at the point of their death. This is provided so as to give comprehensive details of the conditions that lead to a person’s death. Only those conditions which caused the death are included. Any condition which a person is suffering with at the time of their death but did not cause the death is not included. For example:

1a. The disease or condition that lead to the death (eg Respiratory Failure)

1b. Antecedent causes (eg Pneumonia)

1c. Morbid conditions giving rise to the above causes (eg COVID-19)

2. Other significant conditions contributing to the death but not related to the disease or condition causing it (eg Diabetes Mellitus, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)

Between 30 December 2020 and 8 June 2021, one death occurred in Jersey General Hospital which was registered with no other causes of death under sections 1b, 1c or 2.

In this case, the Cause of Death section was registered as follows:

1a. COVID-19 Pneumonia

1b. ---

1c. ---

2. ---
