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/
Data 25th May 2021:
318 new +ve tests (⇧1.6% since yesterday)
16733 new tests reporting (⇧37%)
(- of these 10448 were NHS (62% of the tests returned) and 6285 were community (38%).)
This is a 1.9% positive percentage rate.
In total including repeat tests 343 were +ve – this is a 2.0% rate.
3821 newly tested individuals reported (⇩19%)
Local positive tests numbers from last 24 hours:
Ayrshire and Arran 18, Borders 0, Dumfries and Galloway 0, Fife 11, Forth Valley 28, Grampian 11, Greater Glasgow and Clyde 149, Highland 1, Lanarkshire 34, Lothian 54, Orkney 0, Shetland 0, Tayside 12, Western Isles 0
2 new reported deaths in those who have tested +ve in previous 28 days
6 people in ITU with recently +ve test
*There are 5 patients who have been in ITU for over 28 days.
97 admitted or moving through or stuck in hospital with a recently positive test – through the 14 days prior to admission or having tested positive in hospital the last 28 days
There are 1104 delayed patients in Scottish hospitals as of 5th May, so covid patients are 8.8% of this number.
As of today, 3,138,366 people have received their first dose of the vaccine and 1,881,214 their second.
This means that yesterday 16,421 people received their first dose, and 29,035 their second.
ONS Prevalence Survey
The ONS estimates 1 in 1960 people had the coronavirus in the week 9th to 15th May – this is down from 1 in 1250 the previous week. This is a very low rate indeed.
Graph 1 – ‘Cases’ look to be levelling off again, looking at the blue dotted line. However, it is impossible to predict what will happen with cases because estimating the number of tests that are to be carried out is impossible.
Graph 2 – We are seeing a rise in positivity, now at around 2%.
Graph 3 – Newly tested individuals are going up – this is because of all this community testing going on. It’s really not good news for getting out of lockdown.
Graph 4 – Hospital occupancy is on a slight upwards incline. Deaths are flat at zero. What can I say? Nothing much at all is going on, covid-wise in our hospitals.
Graph 5 – Greater Glasgow & Clyde ‘cases’ continue to rise. But testing is up.
Graph 6 – Grampian ‘cases’ continue to do nothing, including Moray area, where we’ve had that recent scare.
Graph 7 – Forth Valley ‘cases’. I saw a report that cases in Clackmannanshire are a concern… and you can see for yourself the extent of that problem.
Graph 8 – Hospital occupancy by region – traces here are from the only five regions in the whole of Scotland with more than 4 covid patients. Everything is fairly flat, except in Glasgow where there has been a recent surge and Ayrshire & Arran has had a rise too.
There are no regions with more than 4 ITU patients anywhere, and that has been the case since 18th April.
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.
