That's right. I'd wait until Thursday and even then any day in isolation needs to be treated with caution. Having such absolute low numbers of deaths can always lead to large percentage swings because of some artifact of how the numbers are compiled.Hopefully, I have had 5 cans of beer watching France v Bulgaria so a fair bit of your post was a struggle for me, but I think I get the point. Right now we are comparing apples and oranges so let it settle down a bit and see where we are?
I wasnt looking at single days, but your point about low numbers and taking very little to get a swing is absolutely correct.That's right. I'd wait until Thursday and even then any day in isolation needs to be treated with caution.

I saw that, that is good news and was put down to surge testing and vaccinating.It was mentioned on the BBC news at some point yesterday.
Glad to see the deaths come down a little.As of 9am on 9 June, 4,535,754 people have tested positive for COVID-19 in the UK.
Positive cases were 7,540 (4,330 on corresponding day last week).
6 deaths were reported today (12 on corresponding day last week).
152,289 deaths with Covid-19 on the death certificate (up to 28 May)
40,710,319 have had a first dose vaccination. 136,802 first dose vaccinations yesterday. 28,540,844 have had a second dose. 313,482 second dose vaccinations today.
If we say the 45-49 are the ones in the process of getting their second jab atm (based on my 54 y/o FiL having his 2nd a couple of weeks ago), that would show 50+ 2nd jab is working well, and it having some effect on 30-49 who’ve had 1 jab / recently had 2nd, and then under 30’s with no jab yet, seeing the rise.
No. There was a bit of discussion on this above yesterday. The heat map showed primarily new infections were in the lower age groups but there were increasing numbers across all age groups, but no information on whether these older people were vaccinated. Older people can get a faster fall off in immunity after vaccination, particularly if they have other health conditions, so some may be.Bear is there anything in the figures about whether the new infections are from people previously vaccinated? I would assume not.
