13819 new tests reporting (⇧34%)

This is 7.6% positive percentage rate (⇧0.3%)


In total including repeat tests 1246 were +ve – this is a 9.0% rate (⇧0.4%)


4577 newly tested individuals reported (⇧23%).


Local data:

87 new reported deaths in those who have tested +ve (⇧83)

2010 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 (⇩0.3%)



As of today, 437900 people have received their first dose of the vaccine and 6060 their second.

This means that since yesterday 22498 people were vaccinated with their first dose and 522 with their second.



Graph 1 – No change in the trend of the astonishing fall in positive test numbers. The rate at which it is falling is just mind-boggling, frankly. I am now expecting it to reach a new floor suddenly and then to hover around there indefinitely. Really hard to predict. But with so few identified cases around the country in January, we really should be expecting to hear from Government because they cannot have expected a decline of this extreme nature, I would have thought. I’m sure they are watching it closely, of course!

Graph 2 – Every day the percentage positive drops further, when measured as new positives against new tests. And the percentage rate remains smooth and consistent compared to the wild fluctuations we used to see. I keep expecting to see new tests rise, but this just isn’t happening. It has been on a continued decline.

Graph 3 – For the last two weeks (almost) community testing has been really low, while NHS tests climb. NHS tests are making up a larger and larger proportion of the tests now.

Graph 4 – Positive tests rise and fall with the number of tests, but now at a lower ratio than they have been doing since Christmas.

Graph 5 – ITU occupancy falling, hospital occupancy flattening at least. Deaths look pretty flat.

Graph 6 – Positive test numbers falling in every single region.

Graph 7 – Positive percentage falling across the country.

Graphs 8-11 – These are very interesting graphs that seem to suggest we should be able to trust that ITU occupancy and deaths are both peaking. Covid’s apparent increased deadliness seems to be dropping again, which  must be good news! And also, ITU occupancy is dropping per positive test again. This is great news!

Graph 12 – ITU occupancy across the country seems to be peaking below the level of the spring epidemic. This graph is complicated, but for today, we’re only interested in the green line.

Graph 13 – ITU occupancy settling down everywhere across the country.

Graph 14 – Only Forth Valley seeing a still-increasing number of covid patients in hospital. (Lanarkshire looks to be peaking.)

Graphs 15&16 – First doses restored to a normal level today, and second doses may be lifting off the ground? Not sure!


Epic post today with 16 graphs! Just wanted to show you lots of things I have…. But still not all the things! 😜😘

Tweet and share the graphs!

Lots of love ❤

Stay sane 🧠 Stay strong 💪
