The number of people in hospital with Covid-19 fell in coronavirus hotspots in June and July, according to data released by NHS England. The number of people dying or going into hospital with Covid-19 has been falling across the UK for months, but since the middle of July, the number of confirmed cases has started to rise. Data released on Thursday by NHS England showed that rising cases were not matched by an increase in the number of people in hospital in the NHS trusts that serve either of these councils. The number of people admitted to hospital for the first time with Covid-19 did increase in Leicester in June, but the rise was much smaller than the rise in confirmed cases. In July, Leicester saw 1,336 cases but only seven people were admitted to hospital with Covid-19.
