Is it Alvez? You may be right of course, but maybe they are waiting until cases are much lower. I don't know.

On the plus side let's hope national positives have turned a corner, we have been seeing some signs of a reversal for a short while.

When you look at the graph my friend I'd say it's a fair summation to conclude the only benefit of going from tier 2 to 3 is £££ for Nottingham

Maybe Alvez but dropping numbers says the measures are working, or at least it is one interpretation. If it is financially better for the area to maintain local measures and increase those, that is a very poor show and shouldn't be allowed to happen.

Aren’t the numbers spreading southwards though?
Somebody helpfully referred me to a hospital admissions site a few weeks back and I’ve been keeping an eye on them and there are definite upturns in the southern parts of the country.
So even if the north peaks and starts going down a continuing surge down south with the big population centres down there will keep the national figures up for many weeks yet.
Probably a better indication for us is to watch our local figures.

As of 9am on 30 October, 989,745 people have tested positive for COVID-19 in the UK.

Positive cases were 24,405.

274 deaths were reported today.

Looks like a sprint to get capacity for 500,000 tests a day by tomorrow (with 350,000 tests).

It still looks very stable around the 20 - 25k mark, how are they predicting worse case scenario and figures above 100000 per day?

Cases in the north look to be stabilising and the curve flattening.

Is an exponential growth about to happen or are the media outlets scaremongering?

The curves show a huge fall off in 18 to 30s. All other age groups increasing. I guess it's waiting to see the older and younger age group curves leveling off.

There was a report earlier (Sky) that prevalence in care homes were comparable with the first wave. That would be really worrying, but there will presumably be more on this is it's true.

Well interesting bear it's rhinovirus season now which then moves over for flu season normally into December...

I'm hoping that if the infections stay like this flu season will disappear and it will taper off into the new year and then vaccine for you oldies (I'll give mine up for you). 😉

Jesus that was far too optimistic for me. Better have a cup of tea and a sit down.

Looking more and more like we've peaked unless it's a consistent reporting issue .. good time to lockdown that way when the cases go away you can claim it was the lockdown that did it.

I think you'll find that we haven't peaked cos the scientist and statisticians tell us we haven't 😉

Highest 7-day average for hospital admissions since 28th April (13 days earlier than last week).
Highest number of people on ventilation since 21st May (8 days earlier than last week).
Highest 7-day average for new deaths within 28 days of a positive test since 30th May (8 days earlier than last week).
First instance of four consecutive days with 270 or more new deaths announced since 22nd May (2 days earlier than last week's comparison with 180 or more deaths on four consecutive days).
