New NHS figures show that thousands of people injured in household accidents were admitted to English hospitals during Covid-19 lockdowns...
...numerous incidents, including eight people over the age of 90 who needed hospital treatment after falling from playground equipment, were recorded.
Data from NHS Digital showed that more than 5,300 people were admitted to hospital after falls from a range of playground attractions such as swings and slides. While the average age of these adventurers was nine-and-a-half years old, dozens of parents and grandparents were also injured.
So, no doubt about it, it's a very serious disease. Age, that is.
