In the absence of the government daily press, I wonder if it would be useful for us all to keep an eye on what covid is doing and where there may be an issue.
I will get my figures from the daily analysis by Kings College.
I know other people are taking part in this and I would highly recommend anyone to join and feed your information into the system.
Be pleased too for information from other evidenced based sources. No point in posting stuff that is just newspaper talk as that won’t help at all.
So today Kings College says
The daily new cases have stopped falling for the first time in a couple of months
According to these figures there are currently 2,341 daily new cases of COVID in the UK on average over the two weeks up to 20 June 2020 (excluding care homes). These figures were based on 14,422 swab tests from 7 to 20 June, including 56 positive swabs.
For the past month the number of daily new cases has been falling week on week making this the first time the data has stopped falling. The data shows that the Midlands is now the region of England with the largest number with 716 daily new cases. This week's figures also point to the return of a slight North / South divide as the Midlands, North West and North East all now have higher numbers of daily new cases compared to the southern regions like the South West and London which have very low numbers.
If people are interested you can go on the site and look for your areas figures.
130284 people are predicted to have covid in the U.K.
My area Brighton and Hove R rate is 0.5%
