16256 new tests reporting (⇩30%)Β 

This is 8.2% positive percentage rate (⇧1% on yesterday)

1918 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 (⇧3%)



No update since yesterday.



Graph 1 – Positive tests continue on their precipitous drop.

Graph 2 – The percentage positive continues to fall, very rapidly! Newly tested individuals is still flat. I’m not quite sure what is happening with number of new tests – it seems to be climbing but I still think it’s slowing. There are a few new testing programmes starting up in the next week, I understand, so maybe it’s about to go through the roof.

Graph 3 – This is a low tests numbers day today, in both NHS and Community testing.

Graph 4 – You can see how the positivity is dropping, where the test numbers are holding up better than the positive test numbers.

Graph 5 – Positive tests are falling across all regions, having all peaked at the same time.Β 

Graph 6 – Hospital occupancy rise is still appearing to be slowing – as expected when new positive cases have been dropping for a while. ITU occupancy is still climbing but also looks to be slowing.

Graph 7 – ITU is filling up in Glasgow especially. The rest of the picture is a little messy. (Missing regions, or missing data, show where the number of patients was fewer than 5.)

Graph 8 – Hospital occupancy rising everywhere. (As above, missing regions, or missing data, show where the number of patients was fewer than 5.)

Lots of love ❀
