COVID hospitalisations rising rapidly in northern England - health official

LONDON, Oct 12 (Reuters) - The number of COVID-19 patients in hospitals is rising rapidly in northern England and could outstrip the rate seen during the first wave of the virus, a senior health official said on Monday.

“We now have more patients in hospital with COVID-19 than we did when the government announced restrictions on March 23,” Stephen Powis, the National Medical Director of NHS England, told a media conference. (Reporting by Guy Faulconbridge, writing by Michael Holden; editing by William James)
