Number of Britons hospitalised with coronavirus soars 25% in a DAY as Britain records 14,542 new cases and 76 more deaths


The number of Britons in the hospital with coronavirus (pictured: A graph showing the data) has soared by 25 per cent in a day, new data has today revealed, as figures show the UK has recorded 14,542 more infections - more than triple the number from a fortnight ago. In another blow to hopes the virus is being brought under control, official NHS data shows there were 478 new hospital admissions in England on Sunday - the most recent day figures are available for. 

The figure is 25 per cent increase on Saturday's data when 386 people were admitted to the hospital with Covid-19. It also represents a four-month high, the likes of which have not been seen since June 3, when the figure was 491. The latest surging stats come as coronavirus cases continue to rise in the UK, with 14,542 new cases recorded today - meaning the number of people testing positive for Covid-19 every day has tripled in a fortnight. Last Tuesday's data, which would normally be used to measure how much the UK's outbreak has grown in the last week, is unreliable due to a catastrophic counting error at Public Health England. It means Tuesday September 22 is the most recent point of reference - there were just 4,926 cases on that date
