Omicron, England: Paediatric Intensive Care rose by 29 kids in just 11 days over the start of Dec, according to NHS figures: reaching 85% capacity up from 81% at the end of Nov. A whopping 575 kids were in ICU on Dec 10.
As can be seen here: as of the 29 Nov 546 kids in ICU. The capacity is 671.

81% occupied.
By the 10th of December: 575 kids are in PICU: a rise of 29 kids in just 11 days: 85% capacity.
However, despite record high numbers admissions in kids by at least double: the surge apparently starts to decline: as of the last date reported: 26 Dec: 507 kids in PICU.

75.5% capacity....
What we see then, quite clearly, is the start of the surge: yet somehow magically, despite the fact 4-6x more kids are admitted now than a months ago: the PICU numbers go down.
Isn't that interesting? We know that NHS staff are being threatened for declaring critical incidents, so we can only help but wonder what else they are threatened about: for instance, reporting correct information on Hospital numbers.
Another child death today as the toll of the 'festive' omicron season starts to emerge.

Another child death added: the result of the 'festive' omicron season:

You guys have no idea BTW: I've also received these kinds of messages: and in my case they usually follow posts about new variants.
The messages almost always start out with 'I like and respect your posts, but now you are fear mongering and it's dangerous and irresponsible to report this'
'I don't think I can trust what you say now, and it's too depressing—why can't you ever be positive for once'

'Nobody else agrees with you—you should take down your dangerous posts'

Up until last month: Dame Mary Marsh was Chair of Trustees for the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH). She is also the non executive director of HBSC bank: she has yet to be replaced as Chair of RCPCH. Image
As can be seen from her profile on the RCPCH website: Dame Mary was not only the non executive director of HSBC bank—who also fund Great Ormond Street (GOSH)—she also is a Trustee for 'Teach First'. A company who directly profit from schools staying open. Image
Teach First: a charity that is supposed to place people in schools while they train to become qualified teachers; dropped 120 recruits when the pandemic hit: those effected were left unable to pay their mortgages: Image

School in East London: boy in Year 1 has had a seizure and an ambulance had to be called this afternoon: the child has no history of seizures and is not epileptic.

Seizures are well known to happen in omicron children.
The ambulance took 3 hours to arrive: mainly because omicron has peaked and the pandemic ended yesterday.
One of the Teaching Assistants at the primary school was feeling unwell yesterday: couldn't feel their legs: tested yesterday was negative. Today, they came into school: sitting like death warmed up in the staff room: told to go home: before going home tested positive.

But don't worry, because we're covering it up! Even the report cited says there's an increase of 12% vs other waves. Russell Vyner: a true enemy of children's health is quoted in this article which downplays & denies the true risk to kids.…
Here's some real figures for you SAGE: babies and toddlers usually account for about 1.4% of admissions: they now account for over 5%. Increase 3x WITH OMICRON. Image
Now they are saying that under 1s represent 42% of child admissions: This, they say, is up from 30%. That already shows you that the youngest have the highest risk in terms of kids!

OMICRON UK: Patients in hospital reaches levels not seen since mid Feb: more than doubling from 20 Dec to 11 Jan. Image
In fact, when you look at the rate of growth: Omicron surged much faster: compared to to 2020 (Alpha). Here we can see Oct 2020: around the same amount of in patients as Dec 2021: 7,852...close enough to compare. Image
It took till Dec 19, 2020, to hit the 19K+ plus mark: a two month period.

Omicron climbed the same amount in just 3 weeks. More than twice as fast as Alpha: Image

Wow! Los Angeles has the biggest increase so far in BABIES AND TODDLERS admitted for OMICRON VARIANT: A 14.5X INCREASE HERE: FROM 4 TO 58 in the space of a month: Image
We don't need spike gene dropout to tell us where omicron is: just look at the increase in kids admissions: that's the only data point I need anymore.
And I'm not joking.

LA estimates that 4.5% of cases are hospitalised with omicron: they claim that this is a reduction from Delta and other variants:

5-6% with now 4.5%?? wow, a 0.5% reduction....apparently.... Image
