Hello Friends! 📰🕵️‍♂️📉


Data 21st January 2021:

1636 new +ve tests (⇩1% on yesterday)

27873 new tests reporting (⇧9%)

This is 5.9% positive percentage rate (⇩0.6%)


In total including repeat tests 1940 were +ve – this is a 7.0% rate (⇩0.5%) – another big drop in positivity today.


6658 newly tested individuals reported (⇩3%). That’s 1.5 million Scots now had at least one test!


Local data:

Ayrshire and Arran 116, Borders 24, Dumfries and Galloway 57,
Fife 66, Forth Valley 105, Grampian 104, Greater Glasgow and Clyde 510, Highland 42, Lanarkshire 328, Lothian 182, Orkney 0, Shetland 2, Tayside 96, Western Isles 4


89 new reported deaths in those who have tested +ve (⇩3)

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

2004 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 (⇧0.05%)



As of today, 334871 people have received their first dose of the vaccine and 4466 their second.

This means that since yesterday 24962 people were vaccinated with their first dose and 296 with their second.



Graph 1 – Positive test numbers continue their precipitous drop and we are now back to October levels, in daily values.

Graph 2 – The percentage positive continues to fall, very rapidly – as it has been doing since New Year. Daily new tests are limping up but nothing like as fast as I thought they would. Newly tested individuals are falling and I expect that to continue.

Graph 3 – Tests are generally very high today, held up mainly by NHS tests, which have been really high in number recently and seem to be on an upwards trend.

Graph 4 – Positive tests falling in every single region.

Graph 5 – Hospital occupancy definitely looks to be slowing and ITU occupancy will likely follow soon – as expected with new positive cases dropping.

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. The occupancy is generally quite noisy in the smaller population regions.

Graph 7 – Lanarkshire and Ayrshire & Arran look to be the worst affected relative to the first wave.

Graph 8 – vaccinations first doses continue apace… second doses much slower. (My daughters’ graph. Thanks to them for the help.)
