146 people in ITU with recently +ve test (⇩1)

1959 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, 264991 people have received their first dose of the vaccine and 3698 their second.

This means that since Friday 40151 people were vaccinated with their first dose and 367 with their second.



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 – How tidy!

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 – vaccinations continue to be rolled out really fast, although it looks as though first doses are being administered much faster than second doses.

Lots of love ❤
