Media captionJeremy Hunt: “8 0% of the NHS was unaffected”

A “second spike” in cyber-attacks has not punch the NHS but some hospital trusts are tolerating ongoing disruption due to Friday’s ransomware attack.

Routine surgery and GP appointments have been cancelled across the NHS as it regains from the world-wide outbreak.

But the number of hospitals diverting cases from A& E has decreased from seven on Sunday to two.

They are the Lister Hospital in Hertfordshire and the Broomfield Hospital in Essex.

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt, who attended a Cobra committee meeting on cyber-security on Monday, “says its” “encouraging” that there has not been any fresh assaults, although the National Crime Agency said this did not mean there would not be one in the future.
