Chickenpox is not a notifiable disease in England, therefore data on the exact number of people diagnosed with chickenpox are not available.

A count of finished admission episodes with a primary diagnosis of chickenpox in England for the financial years 2014-15 to 2018-19, provided by NHS Digital, is attached.
