  • Council leaders and regional mayors in some of England's biggest cities, including Leeds, Liverpool, Newcastle and Manchester, where new cases are rising sharply have written to ministers warning that the current set off restrictions is not working on their especially critical off the 10 PM rule for pubs, clubs, on restaurants in hospitals across England.

  • They have recorded the biggest rise in admissions in a single day since the month of June, while new cases of the virus in the north of England have continued to rise despite the local lock down restrictions that are imposed on millions of people.

  • But cases in the south of England are relatively low in comparison, our correspondent Dan Johnson reports now from Greater Manchester.

  • Ian's lived here his whole life and it's with the being locked down or not in lock down were neither must up not mass stop one or the other not half baked bit of their six of one half a dozen of the other.

  • Basically nothing a local people that the local said God, when students come back, If this is what's gonna happen, we've got a second influx of it.

  • I think we should go back to being loathed, you know, proper locked down again.

  • But leaders of the worst affected cities say they don't want another lock down.

  • Their letter makes clear.

  • They think the existing restrictions aren't working a confusing and counterproductive, and they've called for more shared decision making.

  • We're facing the worst of both worlds here.

  • The infection rates going up, the economy of our cities, tanking eso.

  • We decided to come together and just really to stress the government.

  • The message we've been putting across so many times worked with us locally on our floor.

  • I think seven or eight people got tested who were positive.

  • The University of Manchester has seen more than 1000 cases.

  • Adam and his flatmates have bean isolating for 10 days after they expect us to will do, like honestly, well, young, we wanna have fun.

  • We've had, like a pretty poor six months.

  • What does he expect way.

  • Also, a lot of this didn't have a choice.

  • So all kind of quietness accommodation and we're gonna get it in the end.

  • We now need to introduce a contain approach with the universities just to manage transmission over the next three weeks on, then take additional measures if necessary.

  • The council's being delivering letters to residents saying that the return of university students has had unexpected impact on the our number here and there are leaflets reminding people they shouldn't be partying.

  • But there are voices here that feel it's just too easy, too simple to blame students when there are other things going on.

  • I feel like they have been duped and we have been duped, too.

  • We all share the Laundrette, the supermarkets, public transport of inevitably, it will hit communities like ours on.

  • We do have a higher number of vulnerable people, both socially deprived on people from Bain Community on elderly people is well stole.

  • The story for us to see people leave here at 10 o'clock, go to the local shop by load of booze and then go to a house party.

  • Ben's built his bar business here based on student trade, were down 60% on our revenue on for me.

  • The government either needs to shut us completely on give us full support or they need to let us trade.

  • If it carries on.

  • The way is we're not going to survive.

  • The government says it's working hand in hand, with local leaders ramping up test and trace on supporting those in isolation.

  • It's important to say not everywhere with students has problems are not everywhere with problems has students.

  • But here the universities have announced they're moving most courses online to try to suppress the virus.

  • Another big cities embraced for their own case numbers to rise.

  • Don Johnson, BBC News, Manchester And as we've been reporting, the rate off coronavirus infections in the U.

  • K.

  • Has almost doubled in a week.

  • Our medical editor, Fergus Walsh, has been considering the various factors which could be driving the new increase.

  • There is a north South divide with co vid cases Aunt Hospital admissions have been rising sharply in cities in the north of England, where much of the population faces extra restrictions, while the substantially lower in the south.

  • If we look at three hotspots for Covic in the north, of England, Manchester had 529 cases per 100,000 population.

  • Liverpool 487 on Newcastle, 435 now.

  • Contrast that with three cities in the south, Bristol had 46 cases per 100,000 population.

  • Norwich 32 on London 60.

  • What about those who are getting co vid in the north west of England?

  • As in other areas, the highest rates are among people in their twenties.

  • You can see how sharply it's risen in recent weeks in more vulnerable age groups.

  • People in their sixties.

  • It's risen there, too, as it has among people in their seventies.

  • On among the 80 plus.

  • By contrast, in the south of England, covert cases haven't yet started to rise much in older age groups except in London.

  • All that is reflected in daily hospital admissions.

  • On the third of October, there were 130 covert patients admitted to hospitals in the northwest, 117 in the northeast and Yorkshire, but only 10 in the southwest, 19 in the east of England and 38 in London.

  • Every day, 1.5 million people used this co vid symptoms App from Kings College, London.

  • It's shown there are consistently five times as many cases in the north of England.

  • Compared to the South, there are several possible explanations for this.

  • You've got the deprivation off the population, and definitely we do see twice the rates off infection in deprived areas according to our maps.

  • Then I think you've got people not working Aziz much at home in the North.

  • Compared to the South, Daily Co vid deaths were more than 10 times higher at the peak in April.

  • But the concern is that unless coronavirus cases are brought under control in the North, hospital admissions and eventually deaths will just keep rising.

  • Fergus Walsh B b.

  • C.

  • News time for our look at the latest official government data on coronavirus Andi.

  • It shows that there were 14,542 new infections recorded in the latest 24 hour period.

  • That means the average number of new cases reported per day in the past week is 11,994.

  • Hospital admissions, as I mentioned earlier, jumped significantly on Sunday.

  • On average, 470 people were being admitted every day over the past week.

  • That number does not include Scotland.

  • 76 deaths were reported of people who died within 28 days off a positive covert test.

  • And that means on average, in the past week, 53 deaths were announced every day.

  • And that takes the total number of deaths so far across the UK to 42,000, 445.

  • I'd like to talk a little more about the figures on hospital admissions, and our health correspondent, Sophie Hutchinson, is with me.

  • What light can you shed on that?

  • Well, counting the number of people admitted toe Hospital with Covert 19 is one of the most reliable measures we have of how this pandemic is developing.

  • Today's figures are concerning.

  • Until now, hospital admissions had been doubling on average every two weeks.

  • But if you look today that most the latest figures that we have, they show a sharp jumper doubling in just about a week.

  • The figures from last Sunday, as you were saying 478 people admitted with covert 19 compared toa 241 the week before.

  • It's also worth noting that whales has seen a sharp rise as well.

  • So far, neither of these rises in England or in Wales has translated into a sharp rise in deaths.

  • But we do know there's usually a lag of about two weeks before death rates are impacted.

  • Where are these hospital admissions will there, in areas where we've seen the infection surge in the Northeast, the northwestern in Yorkshire on now, infections seem to be taking off in Nottingham a swell.

  • The rate has increased from 71 100,000 people to 441 100,000 people in just a few weeks, and health officials there are expecting more restrictions.

  • Sophie Many thanks again for the update, Sophia Jensen, therefore.

we start with the latest debate on the measures in place to slow down the spread off coronavirus.
