6,375 people now in hospital in England with Covid as 154 trusts see surge

By Neil Shaw

The number of people in NHS England hospitals with Covid has risen by almost 70 per cent since all lockdown restrictions were lifted on July 19.

154 trusts across the country have seen an increase in the number of Covid patients - with 6,375 people now being treated for the illness.

As the numbers continue to rise there are fears the Government will have to bring in an October lockdown to bring the disease under control.

While the vaccine has reduced the number of people dying from coronavirus, the number of people being infected is much higher than at this time last year, as is the number of people requiring hospital treatment.

Analysis by The Mirror shows that since July 19, when coronavirus restrictions were lifted, 154 trusts have recorded an increase in the number of beds taken by people with the virus.

Hospitals in Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Nottingham, London and Leicester are among those to have seen the sharpest rises.

On the day social distancing rules were scrapped, there were 3,813 people in hospital in England, a figure which had risen to 6,375 this week - a 67 per cent increase.

Latest data shows that six NHS trusts were caring for more than 100 Covid patients on August 31, with all of them having recorded sharp rises since Freedom Day.

They are:

  • University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust - 232, up from 179 on Freedom Day
  • Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust - 172, up from 82 on Freedom Day
  • Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust - 160, up from 131 on Freedom Day
  • Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust - 151, up from 86 on Freedom Day
  • Barts Health NHS Trust - 150, up from 88 on Freedom Day
  • University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust - 148, up from 63 on Freedom Day

According to the latest NHS figures, the number of people in hospital with the virus are:

  • England - 6,375, up from 3,813 on Freedom Day
  • East of England - 551, up from 242 on Freedom Day
  • London - 1,177, up from 647 on Freedom Day

A total of 668 deaths registered in the week ending August 27 mentioned Covid-19 on the death certificate - the highest number since 719 deaths were registered in the week to March 26.
