In a tweet today, Tory MP for Harbourough, Oadby & Wigston, and Neil O’Brien referenced a chart from Public Health England that showed hospitalization rates. Commenting on the schedule, O’Brien explained how acceptance rates for all age groups are rising. He said, “An amazing chart … that shows how hospital admissions are going up again across all ages.”
However, in a quick response to the MP, Neil indicated that hospitalization across the country has not increased across all ages.
He said: Look again. No. “
As the former BBC presenter noted, hospital admissions in the 0-4, 5-14 and 15-44 age groups did not increase from 11-25 October.
According to the schedule, the over-85 age group saw a rise in hospitalizations from 63 to 92 per 100,000 in that time frame.

The age range 75-84 increased from 34 to 47, while in 65-74 it increased from 15 to 21.
Although for younger age groups the virus has not had such a significant impact, there are concerns that the UK may need a second lockdown in order to stop the virus spreading.
Other countries like France and Ireland have now taken drastic measures to try to curb the virus and the growing number of infections.
In the last week, the Office for National Statistics estimated there were 51,900 new infections per day in England in numbers released today.

They also estimated that 1 in 100 people inside England was infected with the Coronavirus between 17 and 23 October.
Amid these concerns, experts claimed that the circuit breaker should be forced to close before it is too late.
With many areas expected to reach Level 3 restrictions next month, some officials claimed Boris Johnson should enforce the lockdown before and after Christmas.
While No. 10 rejected a second shutdown, Labor called for a time-limited circuit breaker in line with advice from some scientific experts.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said on Sky News: “If you look at those who have championed the national lockdown, they’ll never be able to tell how you got out of it.
“Our big sense is that you lean better and fully comply with local procedures.
“I think that the country understands the dilemma we are in and the boycott does not want to enter into a national lockdown.”
However, due to the high number of cases, West Yorkshire was the most recent area to be announced as moving to Tier 3 starting November 2.
The area will now join Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Lancashire, and the Liverpool City Area, Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire.
Unlike Mr. Raab, the home secretary, Priti Patel has refused to rule out the second lockdown.
Coronavirus: Cases have increased across the country
She said, “Well, I think at this point, of course, we cannot rule out anything because we are a government focused on making sure that we stop the spread of this virus, and also protect public health.”
“So we are using, and will continue to use, every method available to us to do exactly that.”
