ONS Prevalence Survey

Graph 1 – ‘Cases’ look to be levelling off again. Great news!

Graph 1


Graph 2 – Positivity is levelling off again at around the 1.5% level.

Graph 2


Graph 3 – Newly tested individuals are up – this is because of all this community testing going on. It’s really not good news for getting out of lockdown.

Graph 3


Graph 4 – Hospital occupancy is now at approximately one twentieth of the number of delayed discharges. Deaths are flat at zero. What can I say? Nothing is going on, covid-wise in our hospitals.

Graph 5&6 – Greater Glasgow & Clyde and Grampian cases – Grampian includes Moray and Inverurie where the apparent crisis is happening with covid cases. As you can see, there is nothing happening at all. Greater Glasgow & Clyde is also flattening, including the areas of concern: Glasgow and Renfrewshire. Remember these are absolute numbers.

Graph 5&6


Graph 7 – Lothian cases. I saw a report that cases in Midlothian are a concern… and yet you can see for the whole region of Lothian, there is no real rise.

Graph 8 – Hospital occupancy by region – traces here are from the only four regions in the whole of Scotland with more than 4 covid patients. You can see there is no crisis anywhere. Grampian hospital occupancy is falling, despite the Moray crisis. Glasgow, where there is some concern has a rising hospital occupancy but the number of covid patients is small.

There are no regions with more than 4 ITU patients anywhere, and that has been the case since 18th April.

Graph 8


Graphs 9&10 – Vaccinations progress. Second dose numbers are catching up with first dose numbers. This seems to be an interesting trend and you can see first doses are struggling to maintain pace.
