I see that the Stockton, Hartlepool and Middlesbrough areas are 3 of the 5 highest rates of infection now.

For the first time since the beginning of the pandemic I know a lot of people who have had, or have got, Covid.

And most of them seem to have had pretty bad symptoms, albeit not hospitalised.

Similar with me, 5 people I know have tested positive in the last couple of weeks (with non or mild symptoms). In the first two waves I never knew anybody that I associated with have it

If you look at the numbers of new cases and deaths by actual date (i.e. not by date reported) there is an interesting contrast:

In the seven days up to and including 8th July (the last date data is available for new cases), the rate of increase in the 7-day average has almost halved when compared with the previous week, from 7.7% per day to 3.9% per day.

For deaths during the same period, however, the pattern is reversed. The rate of increase in the 7-day average for deaths has practically doubled from 2.2% per day to 4.1% per day.

Remember, this is by actual date rather than reported date, so it removes fluctuations caused by adminsistrative issues and should give a more accurate picture of what is actually happening (albeit with a slight time lag).

Just having the conversation with Mrs J, about tests as I’ve now done 4 that have been negative this week, but still not convinced I don’t have it (got 2nd of the day currently ticking over)

The trend on here seems to be a number of people have had symptoms for days before finally getting a positive on a LFT. Could this be an effect of the vaccine doing its job? The LFT is less sensitive so needs a higher viral load to register, the vaccine lowers the viral load, so does this lead to people getting the virus and symptoms but still at a viral load level that is undetectable by a LFT?

If so this could be a nightmare and part of the reason for the spread? People displaying mild symptoms, testing negative and then going about their business due to classing it as hay fever etc instead?

Could be. It then spreads in every direction from whole households.
