So, you think it's a good idea to send cancer patients to a hospital to get chemo )which reduces the immune system) where there a load of covid patients?

Aren't Covid patients on segregated wards?  I would have thought so.

Yes they are. Even if they’re suspected or have been exposed they’re placed in side rooms and barrier nursed until they have a couple of negative tests.

Most inpatients have a test before they’re admitted, and then if they’re still in hospital are retested every 5 days (on our ward anyway).

NHS England is even planning covid-free hospitals during a second wave. Some hospitals in England to be kept Covid-free in second wave

Quote

A series of hospitals will be designated as coronavirus-free zones during the second wave of the outbreak in a significant policy shift designed to ensure the NHS continues treatment for cancer and other conditions, the Guardian has learned.

NHS England is determined not to repeat the widespread suspension of normal service that occurred in the first wave, which doctors and charities have criticised for damaging patients’ health, leading to more deaths and creating a backlog of millions of treatments.

The vast majority of those 40,000 were in the main extremely ill and would likely have died in the very near future anyway.

Wrong again - although you keep repeating it  - "underlying conditions" (which are attributed to about 95% of covid deaths) and "at deaths door / extremely ill" are two separate things.

Some wards were made into 'Covid wards' first time, same thing can happen again.

Where does it say people with underlying conditions are "extremely ill"?

 

btw your "refutation" was refuted - so you started banging on about Sweden again soon afterwards.

Because you claimed

 

"The vast majority of those 40,000 were in the main extremely ill and would likely have died in the very near future anyway."
