Indeed as I said it could be a one off thing. Ventilators follow this pattern quite a lot. One days numbers can change quite quickly.Yesterday
'Certainly no sign of any real reason for concern.'
But when the two measures - patients in and those on ventilators - are down in the other big regions and both rise in tandem here on one day it is worth nothing. Especially with NE & Yorkshire which was much the bigger rise today in both measures. And was the region to have the most England deaths today too.
I normally do a fuller hospital summary but am not doing today because of the match.
