ONS Prevalence Survey
The ONS estimates 1 in 1250 people had the coronavirus in the week 2nd to 8th May. This is extremely low. The previous week the rate was 1 in 760. We are certainly out of coronavirus season and came out of any epidemic a long long time ago!
Graph 1 – ‘Cases’ are rising slightly, which means nothing without the context of the number of tests being carried out. See Graph 2.
Graph 2 – Positivity is very far below epidemic levels and stable at around 1%. We have been below 5%, which is the WHO epidemic level since early February.
Graph 3 – The number of newly tested individuals is rising, because of all the community testing, presumably.
Graph 4 – Hospital occupancy (patients with a positive covid test) is now at 6% of the delayed discharge number. Deaths are at zero.
Graphs 5&6 – I have added the Greater Glasgow & Clyde and Grampian traces, which we’re following with interest because of the recent ‘surges’ being reported there. See what you make of it. Remember, it all depends how many tests have been conducted.
Graph 7 – NHS vs Community testing.
Graph 8 – Hospital Occupancy. Again, take what you will from this…. Hospitals are not busy with Covid patients.
Graphs 9&10 – Vaccinations.
Graph 11 – ONS Prevalence – look how low prevalence is. That’s 1 in 1250. Imagine 1250 people. And imagine one person infected in that crowd.
