Hello Friends! 🕵️‍♂️📰📉

Today’s Data 14th January 2021:

1707 new +ve tests (⇩12% on yesterday)

25381 new tests reporting (⇧10%)

This is 6.7% positive percentage rate (⇩1.6% on yesterday)


In total including repeat tests 2111 were +ve – this is a 8.3% rate.


5871 newly tested individuals reported.


Local data:

Greater Glasgow and Clyde 526, Lothian 177, Lanarkshire 242, Tayside 103, Grampian 205, Ayrshire and Arran 124, Fife 87, Forth Valley 80, Three island boards 8 (all Western Isles).


64 new reported deaths in those who have tested +ve (⇩15)

142 people in ITU with recently +ve test (⇧8)

1829 admitted or moving through hospital with a recently positive test – through the 14 days prior to admission or having tested positive in hospital the last 28 days (⇧2%)



As of today, 208,207 people have received their first dose of the vaccine and 3,190 their second.

This means that yesterday 16,242 people were vaccinated with their first dose and 200 with their second.



Graph 1 – The fall in positive tests is now very sustained, and for all it looks a little unnatural (both in the rise and the fall), it is very encouraging news.

Graph 2 – The percentage positive continues to fall, even more convincingly looking at the dotted line. The number of newly tested individuals seems to continue to be flat – or falling.

Graph 3 – Extraordinarily high test numbers from NHS (highest ever), and quite low number of community tests. This looks so unusual.

Graph 4 – Overall test numbers quite high.

Graph 5 – Positive tests are falling across all regions, having all peaked at the same time. This is great news.

Graph 6 – The positivity across the regions is continuing to fall, having risen and peaked across the country simultaneously.

Graph 7 – There’s a lot going on in this graph. I’ll let you draw your own conclusions, but it seems that hospital and ITU occupancy must be going to peak soon, following the positive tests peak.

Graph 8 – ITU is filling up in Glasgow, but the situation in other places looks a lot less severe. (Missing regions, or missing data, show where the number of patients was fewer than 5.)

Graph 9 – Most of the occupancy rise seems to come from Glasgow and Lanarkshire but there are other areas where covid occupancy is climbing sharply. (As above, missing regions, or missing data, show where the number of patients was fewer than 5.)

Graph 10 – Vaccinations graph by my daughters. Two axes showing vaccinations versus new ‘cases’. Let’s see what happens with these measures. Apologies for the splodges but I can’t find the daily data from before this week. That should be us with a continuous dataset from now on.

Tweet and share the graphs! And please stay in touch and comment. I’m loving reading the messages.

Lots of love ❤

Stay sane 🧠 Stay strong 💪
