Glitch that led to 15,000-case spike in NHS Covid-19 case numbers ‘found and fixed,’ says UK govt

The number of Covid-19 patients in English hospitals rose to 3,044 on Thursday, compared to 2,944 a day earlier. This marks the highest number of coronavirus hospitalizations since June 22. 

Professor Yvonne Doyle, medical director for PHE, said: “We are seeing a definite and sustained increase in cases and admissions to hospital. The trend is clear and it is very concerning.”

Giving the keynote address at the NHS Providers annual conference on Thursday, UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock said: “We are at a perilous moment in the course of this pandemic.” 

I am very worried about the growth in the number of cases, especially in the North West and the North East of England, parts of Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, and parts of Yorkshire.

Thursday’s figures come as a further 1,600 students tested positive for the virus at two universities in the city of Newcastle in the North East of England.

Newcastle University reported that 1,003 students and 12 staff have contracted Covid-19 in the past week, while there were 619 new cases at Northumbria University.
