Hospitalisations in London have ‘dropped significantly’ – health boss


The rate of hospitalisations in London during the latest wave of Covid infections may have peaked, a health boss tells the BBC.

Chris Hopson, the chief executive of NHS Providers, says in London – the first region to be hit hard by Omicron – the number of hospitalisations has “dropped significantly” in the past two days.

That could mean the number of hospitalisations in the capital is now matching an earlier apparent peak in cases, he says.
