The total number of people discharged from hospitals in England between 19 March 2020 and 31 March 2020 was 341,562.
The Government does not hold data on the total number of patients discharged from hospitals to care homes and nursing homes. We are working closely with local authorities, the care sector and NHS England to understand the impact of COVID-19 on care homes, and ensure everyone has access to the right care in the most appropriate setting for their needs.
This is an unprecedented global pandemic, and we will continue to work closely with the sector to keep our policies and data under review as it goes on.
