More than 75% of the UK’s adult population are now fully vaccinated against Covid but the disease is still putting strain on hospitals across the country, including those in Manchester.
Thousands are testing positive each day and more than 600 deaths have been reported in the last seven days among people who tested positive within 28 days, according to the latest UK Government figures.
More than 5,000 people are also in hospital with the disease across England with 782 on mechanical ventilation beds; however, 15% of trusts had no Covid patients in the figures, recorded on 10 August.
Across Greater Manchester, there were a total of 400 patients in hospital with coronavirus at the latest count on 10 August - a drop of three people from the week before - and 56 patients on mechanical ventilation beds.
