Development over time by reason for admission to hospital

Laboratory-⁠confirmed hospitalisations, Schaffhausen, 24.02.2020 to 07.08.2022

The graph shows the development of the number of all hospitalisations with laboratory-⁠confirmed SARS-⁠CoV-⁠2 infection by the reason specified for admission to hospital. Since April 2020, this has been recorded by doctors in hospitals’ clinical notifications upon hospital admission and/or in the event of a positive test result. The notifications are always a snapshot.
Patients with a laboratory-⁠confirmed SARS-⁠CoV-⁠2 infection put an additional strain on hospitals because their infection status requires special hygiene and isolation measures. Even if COVID-⁠19 was not the primary reason for hospitalisation, a connection with COVID-⁠19 cannot always be ruled out. What is more, patients may be admitted to hospital for another primary reason and develop complications on the basis of COVID-⁠19 in the course of their stay in hospital.

Reason specified for admission to hospital
«COVID-⁠19»: Patients for whom the primary reason for admission to hospital was COVID-⁠19.
«Others»: Patients for whom COVID-⁠19 was not the determining factor for admission to hospital.
«Unknown»: Patients for whom the reason for admission to hospital is unknown.

Hospitalisation data should be interpreted with caution due to under-⁠reporting and reporting delays.
