There has been a significant rise in the number of Coronavirus patients in ICU beds across Greater Manchester. Mayor Andy Burnham said. The mayor had spoken out to the public. He revealed how Coronavirus cases were rising, during his press conference on Wednesday afternoon.
The significant rise in cases refers to those in ICU compared to not in ICU. There have been 41 cases of Coronavirus cases in ICU beds across Greater Manchester hospitals. In the previous weeks of the 29th of September compared to the week before that where there were only 13 cases. However, there were 228 cases of Covid-19 in non-ICU beds during the week ending September 29th. This had increased from 173 cases the previous week before.
The Mayor had stated that these numbers were low compared to the first wave of Coronavirus back in April of 2020. Coronavirus cases have decreased significantly since the first wave in April and only recently, the number of Coronavirus cases is starting to have a significant increase over late September, with more Coronavirus cases being reported.

The Mayor of Greater Manchester has noticed the increase in Covid-19 cases. The Mayor has started actions that will help prevent the number of Covid-19 cases. He recently decided to call for a 9 pm alcohol sale. This will ban the selling of alcohol after 9 pm in shops, pubs, and clubs.
The curfew has been effective since 2% of every Coronavirus outbreak investigated by Public Health England was due to people gathering in bars and restaurants. The mayor hopes the curfew will help prevent the number of people from turning up at bars and pubs and for them to rather gather in the home where the spread of corona-virus can be decreased.
Recent scientist said, “Ministers should have foreseen that closing bars and restaurants earlier would lead to a build-up for crowds and busier public transport.” The curfew scheme seems to have been quite the success, as the curfew contributed to a 55 percent decrease in the number of people around high streets around Greater Manchester after 11 pm. However, apart from the current success, the Mayor feels like the current curfew restriction will “do more harm than good. This is due to that it creates an incentive for people to gather in the streets rather than to gather at home.”
