Anybody in hospital with Covid has to be kept away from people who don't have Covid, no matter whether or not it was Covid that put them in hospital. This fact stretches resources. Likewise flu or Ebola, but Covid is a bit more common at present. You can't work in a job that puts you in contact with vulnerable people if you have Covid. Like, cutting injured people...

It doesn't need to be severe - if people are self-testing positive & self-isolating because of it they may only be exhibiting mild symptoms which would not otherwise keep them off work.
Yes, it's like isolating because you have a cold, ridiculous.

But why are so many in hospital with it ?
Vast majority unvaccinated in hospital. They should not be included in the figures.
did u read ur own link SB "Hospital cases are though rising more slowly than cases, once again showing the Omicron variant is leading to milder illness.

"
Pick the statistic you fancy. I heard most clearly on R4 this morning that hospital cases for Covid were 50% less than this time last year.

Milder illness but rising hospitalisations
Something amiss I feel
Are they in hospital "with"... as in because of? I don't trust any statistics any more. I know so many who got covid from being in hospital.

A superspreader is good, if it does little damage. Immunises people, and the more that catch it, the less it needs to mutate.
i was answering your "so what happened to omicron being less severe" question.
I would imagine (though who am i?) that if there are rising case there are likely to be rising hospital admissions.
Dont use the BBC for your propaganda.

And dont use google either, use an independent search engine.

what search engine is independent ymb?
//And we have not had the peak yet//
Probably not, but how do you or anyone know at the moment?
//A third of London Fire Engines not active due to staff shortages//
Yes, this is due to the Governments high testing and insisting you are off for a week even if you are past the infectious period

//So what happened to Omicron being less severe ?//
It is, do you not understand the difference between more transmittable and severity?

//Still got super spreader New Year to come yet as well !//
Oh have we? Although that would be a good thing, get the T-cells up will a mild version and we are on our way to winning.
None. Search engines aren't "research". Sticky, what percentage who are hospitalised, are because
they "have" omicrom, and what percentage are hospitalised "with" it?
There are a number so research the one you want.

I use Duckduckgo (And it can sit in Chrome if you prefer) or there is Swisscow.

Not only are they less geared to point you to where the company want you to go (Google is particularly bad for that) but they also respect you privacy more.
Search engines aren't "research"


Eh? How do you get information then?
//and the more that catch it, the less it needs to mutate. //

Sorry but I can't make sense of this. Surely the more that catch it, the more reproduction there is and so more chance of mutation?
Ymg, search engines can only give you somebody else's opinion. Useful for us, but not exactly research or understanding.
Rad, because a virus "survives" and mutates most if it is threatened (like antibiotics are less effective, they have mutated). It has no use in killing or incapacitating its hosts. The best surviving ones, like colds, are harmless but infectious. This one is still learning.
I don't really understand but I'll take your word for it.
YMB, what different stats do you come up with when using duckduckgo?
By all accounts the vast number of Covid cases in hospital are only confirmed once the patient has been tested. People are being admitted for other conditions (fractures etc.), and then test positive for Covid. There is no distinction in the figures for the number of people admitted as a direct result of having Covid, and those found to have it once tested in hospital.
