There is no pre-determined level of COVID-19 infections, hospitalisations or deaths. The Government monitors these metrics with a range of other health data to assess the risk to the National Health Service and the potential need for additional measures. This includes metrics such as hospital occupancy for COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 patients, admissions in vaccinated individuals and the rate of growth of admissions. The current measures will be reviewed before 26 January 2022.
