Despite the strains coronavirus is putting on the system, as hospital admissions for coronavirus continue at a high rate, there is still kindness and new life in NHS hospitals.
I went to Kings Mill Hospital, part of Sherwood Forest Hospitals Trust, to meet the patients and staff.
Among them was the Reverend Edith Dawson who told me sweeties and a smile go a long way at the moment.
Watch: 'My dad was meant to be putting his feet up'
BBC Radio 5 Live
As the UK registers more than 100,000 deaths of people with coronavirus, today, 5 Live has been hearing from people about how they are coping with the grief at losing their loved ones to coronavirus.
Jamie Brown’s dad Tony was 65 when he died with Covid-19 last March.
Speaking to 5 Live’s Naga Munchetty, Jamie said his dad was beginning to retire, but travelling to London one day a week, when he became ill.
"He was meant to be putting his feet up, having worked incredibly hard to do so - and that was taken away from him."
Jamie is a member of the Covid-19 Bereaved Families for Justice group and says the group helped him realise he’s "one in a sea of people who are feeling this... collective grief and collective rage (that) you’ve been so terribly let down".
Was US vaccine roll-out a 'dismal failure' under Trump?

President Joe Biden has said that the US might be able to
boost its daily vaccination roll-out targets after criticising the Trump
Biden, who has described the previous vaccine programme
as a "dismal failure", has committed to getting 100 million vaccine doses done
in his first 100 days and has since said: "I think we may be able to get that to 1.5 million a day, rather than one million a day."
Is he right about the vaccine roll-out under the Trump
As of 20 January, when Biden became US president, about
16.5 million vaccines had been administered.
That is some way off the Trump administration's target of
vaccinating 20 million people by the end of 2020. In fact, fewer than three million people had received a jab
by 31 December.
Vaccinations have sped up since the start of the year.
The daily average for the week before Trump left office
was less than 900,000, according to Our World in Data.
That figure has since risen above one million doses a day,
and Biden has come under some
scrutiny for not setting a more ambitious target.
When you look at the countries doing the most vaccinations by population, the US is fourth after Israel, the UAE and the UK in terms of doses per 100 people.
Israel has the highest per capita vaccination rate in the
world - but vaccines are yet to be rolled out to Palestinians in Gaza and the
West Bank, viewed as occupied territories by the international community.
Israel’s health minister says it is the Palestinian
Authority’s responsibility to provide healthcare under an interim deal for
self-rule in Palestinian areas.
But UN human rights experts say there are international rules about the duty of an occupying power to
provide healthcare - although Israel often argues it isn't technically
occupying the West Bank and Gaza.
Palestinians in occupied East Jerusalem are entitled to be
vaccinated against Covid - they have Israeli residency status. And medics
working in Palestinian hospitals there are also getting vaccines.
Some health experts and business leaders have also called
for Israel to include other Palestinians in its vaccine programme, as around
tens of thousands of Palestinians travel daily to work in Israel and in
Israeli settlements in the West Bank.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health - which operates in the
West Bank – said they are doing deals with four companies that will provide
enough vaccines for 70% of its people, and will get another 20% from the World
Health Organization-backed Covax scheme.
But there are few details at the moment about when vaccines
will start or who will receive them.
Baroness Benjamin, 71, who made her name as the host of TV's Play School in the 1970s, is now a campaigner for young people.
Denmark to pay mink farmers billions over Covid cull
Mink farmers in Denmark - the world’s largest producer of mink pelts until a coronavirus mass cull - have been given a compensation package worth more than 19 billion Danish kroner (£2.2bn).
It was voted through by MPs late on Monday.
The agriculture minister said it was a chance to move on, while the Danish mink breeders association said the industry would never return, as China and Poland could produce mink furs much more cheaply.
Mink farmers were ordered to destroy their entire stock of about 17 million animals last November, over fears that a mutant strain of Covid-19 could pass from mink to humans.
But chaos followed.
The scientific basis of the order came into question, and mass graves appeared to be poisoning soil and water supplies.
The issue led to the resignation of the previous agriculture minister.
What's behind the Dutch riots?
BBC News Hague correspondent
The ignition of discontent has rocked the core of Dutch society.
In the absence of any legitimate way to socialise, is this simply an outlet for young men to feel part of something, their masks concealing their identities and enabling them to violently channel their frustrations?
There are more sinister influences at play. Messages on social media, overt and covert, have whipped up anger. Misinformation has even been spread by some politicians.
Some feared a curfew would be a tipping point, as Dutch restrictions tighten while some neighbouring countries relax their rules. The vast majority of people in the Netherlands are peacefully observing the curfew.
The unrest was initially seen as a response to the first "stay-at-home" order imposed since Nazi occupation during World War Two. That notion has been dismissed by Prime Minister Mark Rutte, who said the rioters were simply criminals and would be treated as such.
But there are simmering anxieties in Dutch towns and cities, and with less than two months before a general election, voters are vulnerable and the streets volatile.
Curfew stays despite riots in Dutch cities
Away from UK news now, and nearby, in the Netherlands, the Dutch government says it will not lift a curfew, after a third night of violent protests against increased Covid curbs.
Shops in Rotterdam and other cities were looted and Finance Minister Wopke Hoekstra condemned the violence, saying: "It's scum doing this".
More than 180 arrests have been made.
The Dutch chief of police said the riots no longer had "anything to do with the basic right to demonstrate".
The criminal violence had to stop, said Prime Minister Mark Rutte.
A night-time curfew from 21:00 (20:00 GMT) to 04:30 (03:30 GMT) was imposed last Saturday to help to halt the spread of the virus. Anyone caught violating it faces a €95 (£84) fine.
The figure of more than 100,000 deaths is a devastating number and it leaves behind many thousands of grieving friends and families. So how can you support someone through the loss of a loved one?
"For every person who dies, around eight to 10 people are significantly affected," psychotherapist Julia Samuel tells Radio 1 Newsbeat.
Restrictions on going to funerals and rules around household mixing mean the normal support networks might not be as easy to reach.
"Your friend will need your support for a lifetime," Amber Jeffrey says. Amber set up the Grief Gang podcast and Instagram page after her mum Sue died. She said the idea was to reach out to others like her.
'Earlier autumn lockdown 'would have saved lives' - Ferguson
Radio 4 PM
Imperial CollegeCopyright: Imperial College
The epidemiologist whose modelling prompted the UK government to impose the
first lockdown last March says he believes more action in the
autumn of last year could have saved lives.
Speaking as more than 100,000 deaths were recorded,
Prof Neil Ferguson told BBC Radio 4’s PM programme: "The new variant was unpredictable and did change our understanding of
how much was needed to control spread, but we did just let the autumn wave get
Asked if there was one thing that could have made a
difference, he added: “In some sense back in March we had much less information to go on
than in September.
"Had we acted both earlier and with greater stringency back
in September when we first saw case numbers going up, and had a policy of
keeping case numbers at reasonably low levels, then I think a lot of the
deaths we’ve seen - not all by any means, but a lot of the deaths we’ve seen in
the last four or five months - could have been avoided.”
