ONS Prevalence Survey

The ONS estimates 1 in 150 people had the coronavirus in the week 31st January to 6th February – this is down a very long way from 1 in 115 the previous week.



Graph 1 – Bouncing around that green line.

Graph 2 – Another floor! I just don’t believe under current testing practices and/or with an endemic virus and/or with hospital infections as they are, we can get below this percentage of tests coming back positive.

Graph 2


Graph 3 – Newly tested individuals number continuing to drop. Eventually, presumably, it will need to level off (until the whole population has been tested) but it’s showing no signs of this so far. I wonder who’ll be the last Scot to be left untested?

Graph 4 – Hospital occupancy continuing to fall fast. ITU occupancy falling again. Deaths are flat, it seems – more later.

Graph 5 – Community testing vs NHS testing has changed – the strategy has clearly been altered. It’s not clear why or how or what the effect on positivity will be. Today the NHS tests are back to being higher than community tests but tests.

Graphs 6&7 – These continue to be a puzzle – but please note they are by date of registration. We have covid deaths continuing to emerge from a smaller and smaller pool of positives but they are coming down. Deaths by date of death look a little different.

Graph 8 – Are we losing (and did we lose before from 9th December on x-axis, ie 25th December for date of ITU occupancy) correlation between positive tests and ITU occupancy? This would imply we had from Christmas an increase in the number of people in ITU compared to what we would have expected from the positive tests count. It also may be the case this is beginning to happen again, because we can see that ITU occupancy has again departed from what was predictable before based on positive tests count.

Graph 9 – ITU occupancy falling very fast nationwide.

Graph 10 – ITU occupancy by region – Highland coming back down now. No reason for panic anywhere.

Graph 10


Graph 11 – Hospital occupancy by region – trending down everywhere – all of them are showing really significant drops in occupancy, except for Forth Valley and now perhaps Lothian. Really, quite a few of these hospitals are heading fast for no covid patients, apparently.

Graphs 12&13 – Vaccinations as seen below. First doses have slowed down and second doses still slow but picking up.
