Leicester hospital admissions by age group

It does not include residents of the county and other places who have been admitted to Leicester hospitals. You can see that over the course of the pandemic older populations are at an increased risk of hospital admission. For the working age and children this risk is much lower. You can also see the impact of the vaccination on hospital admissions for older people.
