More than 9,000 people with COVID-19 being treated in hospital

More than 9,000 people who have coronavirus are now being treated in hospital, NHS England’s chief executive says.

Sir Simon Stevens has said that the number is “only going to increase”, while on a visit to the new NHS Nightingale Hospital in London.

He reassured the public that such services and “mass mobilisation” will increase the number of people medics can treat.

“This has been an extraordinary team effort on the part of nurses and doctors and therapists and pharmacists across London, but also volunteers and paramedics and people returning to help,” he said.

“And when these services are needed, they will be available beginning later this week, and because this is a global health emergency we’re actually seeing similar types of hospitals being established in Berlin and Madrid and New York.”
