Hello Friends! 📰🕵️‍♂️📉


Today’s Data 20th January 2021:

1656 new +ve tests (⇧42% on yesterday)

25476 new tests reporting (⇧93%) – an absolutely huge rise in test numbers today compared to yesterday!

This is 6.5% positive percentage rate (⇩2.3%)


In total including repeat tests 1910 were +ve – this is a 7.5% rate (⇩3.5%) – a big drop in positivity today.


6842 newly tested individuals reported (⇧62%).


Local data:

Ayrshire and Arran 141, Borders 24, Dumfries and Galloway 43,
Fife 70, Forth Valley 111, Grampian 152, Greater Glasgow and Clyde 512, Highland 44, Lanarkshire 255, Lothian 151, Orkney 2, Shetland 3, Tayside 144, Western Isles 4


92 new reported deaths in those who have tested +ve (⇧21)

156 people in ITU with recently +ve test (⇧6)

2003 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 (⇧0.7%)



As of today, 309909 people have received their first dose of the vaccine and 4170 their second.

This means that since yesterday 25327 people were vaccinated with their first dose and 284 with their second.



Graph 1 – Positive test numbers continue their precipitous drop.

Graph 2 – The percentage positive continues to fall, very rapidly – and this is a very sustained trend now which started immediately following new year.

Graph 3 – Tests are generally a bit higher today, but NHS tests reported are the second highest ever, while community tests were quite low.

Graph 4 – What a tidy graph for positive test numbers!

Graph 5 – Hospital occupancy and ITU occupancy rises still seem to be slowing – as expected with new positive cases dropping. Deaths are hard to gauge because of the breaks every weekend, but they also look to be plateauing.

Graph 6 – a mixed picture in ITU across the country. Glasgow stands out,  but there are other areas with higher occupancy than in the first wave.

Graph 7 – vaccinations first doses continue apace… second doses much slower. (My daughters’ graph. Thanks to them for the help.)

Lots of love ❤
