In the South East there was a 53.3% increase in patients needing hospital treatment, jumping from 276 to 423.
Similarly, in the East of England, 52.2% more people were admitted with coronavirus – a rise of 209 to 318.
In the seven days to yesterday, 128,730 people in England have tested positive for coronavirus, amounting to 228.7 cases per 100,000 people.
This takes the country’s total cases throughout the pandemic to 839,580.
It comes as a second national lockdown could be announced as early as Wednesday, after Government scientists revealed that coronavirus is spreading ‘significantly’ faster than their ‘worst-case scenario’ prediction, warning of 85,000 deaths in winter.
The figures suggest that 4,000 people could die every day unless tighter restrictions are brought in soon.
