ALMOST 20 NHS trusts in England are already treating more Covid-19 patients than at the peak of the first wave.
Official statistics show that almost 20 NHS trusts are currently treating up to three times more coronavirus patients than in mid-April, at the peak of the first wave.
Now, as the winter season approaches, hospitals warn that they could run out of beds by Christmas.
Trusts in hotspots such as Nottingham, Liverpool and Doncaster are seeing up to three times the number of Covid-19 patients compared to in mid-April, with five months of winter still to go.
A source speaking to MailOnline said: “Ministers have been told in clear terms that if no further action is taken, at the present rate of rising infections, every hospital bed in England will be full by December 17.
“They would have no choice but to turn people away, including additional Covid patients, people who have heart attacks, cancer, road accident victims – because there would be no beds to put them in or staff to treat them.”
