Hello Friends! 🕵️‍♂️📰📉


For clarity, all today’s stats come from Government stats at


Data 3rd February 2021:

978 new +ve tests (⇧29% on yesterday)

22807 new tests reporting (⇧79%)

This is 4.3% positive percentage rate (⇩1.7%)


In total including repeat tests 1172 were +ve – this is a 5.1% rate (⇩2.3%)

ONS Prevalence Survey

1 in 110 people had the coronavirus in the week 17th to 23rd January.



Graph 1 – Positive tests 7 day average trace is almost certain to cross that 60% of October maximum line – I did not think at New Year that could possibly have happened this quickly.

Graph 2 – The percentage positive is levelling off.

Graph 3 – Newly tested individuals are continuing to fall and are now falling below the level they were at in September – this is really good news.

Graph 4 – Hospital and ITU occupancy have taken a wee nosedive today – I think there has been a reporting correction, clearly, in the last 24 hours.

Graph 5 – Second highest ever day for NHS testing and very low community testing again. Splitting the positive tests in the ratio of the NHS to community tests (1.84:1), there would have been approximately 340 positive tests in the community and 640 in the NHS.

Graphs 6, 7, 8 & 9 – I’ve put these in today to show you more granularity in the detail of the positive tests by region.

Graphs 10&11 – This pair of graphs show how the lag has changed between tests and death. In the autumn, 18 days from test to death was a good match, but now, it’s more like 7 days. You can see a nice match in the peak in January. However, we are now seeing a load of unaccounted for deaths, in terms of the positive tests in that final hump furthest to the right. This is very strange.

Graph 12 – Going regional with ITU occupancy, you can see it’s trending down or flat in every region.

Graph 13 – Hospital occupancy is at least flattening everywhere now – and this is the depth of winter.

Graph 14&15 – Vaccinations as seen below.
