印度變種病毒在英國引起新一波疫情,國民保健署供應商組織(NHS Providers)的專家發現,這一波疫情的入院病人較之前幾波更年輕,但病情嚴重的人減少,而且他們住院的日子更短,相信疫苗已「截斷」染病與重症之間的因果關係。衞生大臣夏國賢也形容儘管確診數字上升,但入院數據「相對平坦」。

國民保健署供應商組織行政總裁霍普生(Chris Hopson)透露,這波疫情的入院人數一直低過前幾波,而位於感染群組地區的醫院亦指,入院人數持續下跌








非常好嘅消息!  早兩日仲對英國確診數字反彈有啲擔心。睇嚟西方國家憑住優秀嘅疫苗,終於見到黎明嘅曙光!

Vaccines may have 'broken the chain' between catching Covid and serious illness, NHS chief says

NHS Providers chief executive, Chris Hopson, said numbers in hospital with Delta variant - was not increasing 'very significantly'

Vaccination appears to have "broken the chain” between catching Covid-19 and becoming seriously ill, an NHS chief has said.

Chief executive of NHS Providers, Chris Hopson, said the number of people in hospital with the coronavirus variant first detected in India - known as the Delta variant - was not increasing “very significantly”.

He told BBC Breakfast, many in hospital in Bolton -which has the highest number of cases of the Indian variant in England – were younger than in previous waves of the pandemic, reports the MEN.
Mr Hopson said: “The people who came in this time round were actually a lot younger and were a lot less at risk of very serious complication, less at risk of death, and what that means is that they were less demand on critical care.

“What we think we can start to say now, based on that experience, is that it does look as though the vaccines have broken the chain between catching Covid-19 and potentially being very, very seriously ill and potentially dying.

“There were very, very few people who have had those double jabs and had been able to have that build-up of protection after those jabs.”

In the most recent phase of the pandemic the number of people in hospital in Bolton with Covid-19 peaked at 50, compared to 170 in November and 150 in January and February, Mr Hopson said.

We know that the hospitalisations are increasing, the rates of people coming into hospital in those areas are rising. But they are not rising very significantly.

Of the 12,431 Indian variant cases so far confirmed in the UK, 10,797 are in England, 1,511 in Scotland, 97 in Wales and 26 in Northern Ireland.

In England, the cases are spread across the country, and the most affected areas include Bolton in Greater Manchester (2,149 cases), Blackburn with Darwen in Lancashire (724), Bedford (608), Leicester (349), Manchester (278) and Birmingham (223).

Dr Adam Kucharski, an epidemiologist at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, said the transmissibility of the Indian variant could see a “big number” of people admitted to hospital with coronavirus.

A member of the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Modelling (Spi-M) Government advisory panel, Dr Adam told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme there were a “number of concerning signs” following early evidence that first-dose vaccines are not as effective against the Delta variant.

He added: “I think it is particularly this increase in transmission that is potentially going to cause us considerable problems.”

Dr Kurcharski said the current picture meant that it was “hard to be confident” that a “big number” of people will not end up in hospital due to the spread of the Indian variant and the number of adults still unvaccinated in the UK.
