NHS hospitalizations on the rise as green list expands | BBC News |

Downing Street says the NHS is prepared for an increase in admissions of coronavirus patients to intensive care.

New figures show the number of Covid-19 patients on ventilators in England's hospitals has climbed to its highest level for more than two months.

The prime minister's official spokesman says the increase has been anticipated and that the country remains in a "good position" to continue with the lifting of lockdown restrictions later this month.

"We have put in a number of additional measures, not least additional ventilators, so we are prepared for this," the spokesman says. "As we have said all along, we know cases will rise, sadly we know that will lead to an increase in hospitalisations and whilst the increase has not been as significant as in the past, we have seen numbers increase.

"We are aware of the huge challenge this pandemic continues to pose to the country but it is thanks to the significant defences that we have built up through our vaccination programme that we have been able to be one of the most unlocked countries in Europe and in a good position still to take a further step later this month."
