CRates of oronavirus cases in Bolton have reached their highest level in more than six months – but the number of hospital patients is still less than a third of the peak of the pandemic, officials reassured.
It comes as patients are urged to visit Royal Bolton Hospital only if absolutely necessary, after its A&E department experienced one of its busiest days on Monday, with staff tackling a backlog of treatments delayed by the pandemic.

But the number of Covid-19 hospitals in the borough is still less than a third of the peak of the pandemic, according to Manchester City Council chief Sir Richard Leese.

Bolton, where the so-called Indian variant has been identified, has the highest rate of new Covid-19 cases in the UK. A total of 1,300 new cases recorded in the seven days to May 21 – the equivalent of 452.1 per 100,000 people. This is an increase from 300.8 the week before and is the highest from the seven days until November 12.

Sir Richard, Head of Health and Care for the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, said: “Even though there is a high proportion of cases, this high proportion of cases does not translate into a significant increase in hospitalizations and, more importantly, it is not. leading to more people in intensive care. “

Those admitted to hospital included people between the ages of 35 and 60, many of whom were only recently eligible for the vaccine. Others are hospitalized for a “much less serious” illness.
