Hospital Covid patients fall to a third

At both hospitals run by Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust, people suffering from the effects of the virus fell from a peak of 334 on January 4 to 139 on February 2.

South-east England is also currently recording its lowest number of Covid-19 patients since December 28, with 3,632 cases, down 35 per cent from its second-wave peak of 5,577 on January 13.

It is a month since England was put into its third lockdown on January 5. During that time the number of hospital patients with Covid-19 rose from 26,467 on January 5 to a record 34,336 on January 18, before falling to the current level of 25,334 as of February 4.

However, this is still well above the number of patients on the day England came out of its second lockdown.

On that date, December 2, patient numbers stood at 13,212 – higher than the 10,994 on November 5 when the second lockdown began.
