Hello Friends! 🌱🌱🌱
For clarity, all today’s stats come from Government stats at https://www.gov.scot/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-daily-data-for-scotland/
I have only updated as far as the data are updated on the government spreadsheets. Sorry it’s taken so long to update this, but I have been having a lovely Easter holiday!

ONS Prevalence Survey
The ONS estimates 1 in 500 people had the coronavirus in the week 4th to 10th April. This is a very low rate and getting smaller. Certainly no indication that there is any need to be concerned.
Graph 1 – ‘Cases’ tumbling – this is great news! It really can’t get much lower.
Graph 2 – Positivity falling. And it is very far below epidemic levels. You’d think no restrictions were any longer necessary. This situation is absurd because we have been below 5% for over 2 months now. Five percent is the WHO epidemic level.
Graph 3 – The number of newly tested individuals is falling, which is yet another indication that there is nothing happening, covid-wise. There is no rise in people in the community seeking a test. We are looking for infection in still many people and finding less.
Graph 4 – Hospital occupancy is now at 10% of the number of delayed discharges… and falling. Deaths are flat. There is really very little going on in our hospitals, covid-wise. In fact, I think that all our covid patients must surely be delayed at this point.
Graph 5 – The long term patients in ITU are falling relative to shorter term. We seem to be flattening.
Graph 6 – Daily positivity rate – the pattern continues… the positivity is the lowest we have seen since the start of the ‘second wave’.
Graph 7 – NHS vs Community testing. The trend there continues. NHS is doing more testing and the Community less and less. That is because this is largely a nosocomial infection.
Graph 8 – Hospital occupancy by region – the story there continues; occupancy at very low levels everywhere. If a region doesn’t feature, it’s because there are fewer than five patients there.
Graphs 9&10 – Vaccinations as seen below. Second doses are being delivered at a much faster rate than first doses. Obviously, eventually, they will have to slow as well, and I think this parameter will be a good measure of the position the public is taking with regard to the restrictions and mitigation measures for covid.
Graph 11 – ONS Prevalence survey – this is the lowest rate we have seen this year again. It is extremely low.
