Corona virus and healthcare in Isle of Man

Healthcare in Isle of Man

Healthcare in Isle of Man is rather above average in a worldwide comparison.

Probably the most important indicator that can be used to summarize the efficiency of all measures is general life expectancy. In other words, the theoretical age that a newborn child could potentially reach today. At the moment this age in Isle of Man is 74.6 years for men and 81.5 years for women. For comparison: worldwide life expectancy is about 5.4 years lower (men: 70.4 / women: 74.9 years).

Distribution of the corona virus

Spread of the corona virus in Isle of Man

Currently: 0.2 new infections per day per 100,000 inhabitants
By April 19th, 2021, 1575 infected persons and 29 deaths have been reported in the country. The first confirmed infections were reported in March 2020, which is the date of the official notification. An additional 10-14 days are calculated for noticing one's own infection, the doctor's appointment, the laboratory test and, above all, the period from the infection until the first symptoms appear.

The total of 1,575 infected people represent 1.9% of the country's total population. The number of new infections during the 15th calendar week (04/12/2021 to 04/18/2021) was 1 , representing 0.2 cases per 100,000 inhabitants per day.


The first graph shows the number of reported infections per calendar week. The second graph below the number of deaths.

Mortality rate of infected persons

From the previously infected and deceased people, in Isle of Man results in a mortality rate of 1.8%. However, it should be borne in mind that death occurs an average of 19 days after the first symptoms appear. The time of the actual infection is therefore followed by several days until a person affected has a medical test carried out and the results are available.

Due to the current corona pandemic, we update the worldwide case numbers weekly. A list of all infected and dead people by country can be found on our Corona virus topic page.

Medical supplies

Corona virus and healthcare in Isle of ManMedical care provided by doctors and hospitals in Isle of Man is below average compared to the world population. The country provides 1.6 hospital beds per 1000 inhabitants. The global mean here is 2.7 beds. Within the EU, 5.6 beds are available for every 1,000 residents.

With about 123 physicians in Isle of Man, there are about 1.45 doctors per 1000 inhabitants. Here again the comparison: worldwide this standard is 1.50 physicians per 1000 inhabitants and in the EU even 3.57.



Supply with drinking water

About 97 percent of the population has access to an immediately available, running drinking water supply. At least via springs and wells at a distance of no more than 30 minutes or supplied water, 99% of the population is supplied with largely clean drinking water. The population is thus better served than average. In a global comparison, only about 71% of the population has direct access to tested and always available drinking water. Within the European Union, this share is 97%. Only in a few countries does the proportion fall below 10%.
