The answer


Totals for inflammatory heart disease

2019 3,151 (baseline)

2020 12, 267 (x 3.8)

(December 2020, UK covid vaccinations start)

2021 18,963 (x 6)

2022 24,642 (x 7.8)

2022, that’s 7.2% of the catchment population

Age profiles not given

Great Western Hospital

3,100 staff, 435 beds

Trust catchment population is currently approximately 340,000.



So x 202 for UK population

Extrapolating for UK population = 4.9 million
