Professor Yvonne Doyle said: “On the next slide, we can see people in hospital beds with COVID-19.
“Here we can see that the trend has been increasing for London but now we are beginning to see London stabilising, dipping, rising, dipping again.
“So probably a more stable pattern for London.
“On the other hand, for Great Britain, we do see other regions now beginning to increase.
“Particularly the North West, Yorkshire and the North East.
“It is very important that the message about staying home and social distancing is adhered to because we are certainly not past this virus damage yet.”
