    Nearly 13,000 Covid Cases Today

    Hi All

    Very little reporting in the media despite the unusually high number.

    https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/?_ga...207.1576793507

        Perhaps read the basis of the figure more carefully?

          No - the devil is always in the detail which they have not supplied.

            Due to a technical issue, which has now been resolved, there has been a delay in publishing a number of Covid cases in England. This means that the total reported over the coming days will include some additional cases from the period 24 September to 1 October, increasing the number of cases reported.

            3,654 were from Thursday
            1313 Wednesday
            558 Tuesday
            618 Monday
            1263 Sunday
            and so on

            Would appear to be a shambles

              Thanks Mike - was the reason given for the delay??

              If the cases were not entered in the system in a timely fashion, how can they conduct effective contact tracing??

                  There has never been effective contact tracing,

                  They fail to contact most and many of those they do contact are too late anyway.

                  The latest results(17-23 Sept)
                  positives 56% provided details of contacts.
                  contacts 64% reached

                  contact hit rate ~36%

                  Once you factor in the delays in testing then transferring into the system then contacting then contacting contacts the numbers reached within 72hrs of requesting a tests are small

                  The outbreaks(they call those complex cases) tend to do a lot better with hit rates ~90%


                  The majority of contact settings are home so primary contacts(63%)/visitors(12.3%) should already be isolating or taking extra care if a member of their household has symptoms.

                  latest outbreak(more than 1 case in a place) data

                  week 39 (between 21 August and 27 September 2020)
                  782 new ARI incidents have been reported in week 39 (Figure 19):
                  • 143 incidents were from care homes where 91 had at least one linked case that tested positive for SARS-CoV-2
                  • 27 incidents were from hospitals where 25 had at least one linked case that tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 and 1 tested positive for rhinovirus
                  296 incidents were from educational settings where 222 had at least one linked case that tested positive for SARS-CoV-2
                  • 3 incidents were from prisons where all 3 incidents had at least one linked case that tested positive for SARS-CoV-2
                  204 incidents were from workplace settings where 141 had at least one linked case that tested positive for SARS-CoV-2
                  • 33 incidents were from food outlet/restaurant settings where 24 had at least one linked case that tested positive for SARS-CoV-2
                  • 76 incidents were from the other settings category where 40 had at least one linked case that tested positive for SARS-CoV-2

                  Although the universities are getting into the news it is primary and secondary schools that account for 80% of clusters.
                  Workplaces have been going up no breakdown of the types of workplace(they do include social settings like pubs)

                        In my area, there are around 770 positive cases at Northumbria University alone, with 78 having symptoms. It's a shocking number from just one institution! Quite a lot of the students are concentrated in a couple of neighbourhoods too, and many don't live in halls of residence. There are cases at Newcastle University, but not nearly as many so far.

                          I am curious how many of these cases were possibly 'imported' into the region ??

                            The significant basis for the substantial ‘rise’ was plainly in the government announcement posted! This pandemic is extremely serious for our health and economy. Dealing with it as quickly and effectively as possible requires both that everybody acts responsibly and sensibly - even when the government is less than competent - and does not exaggerate or minimise risks and infections by not accurately, sensibly, representing ‘statistics’!

                              These unfortunate students have been knowingly shoved into large clusters, so inevitably they have been affected.

                              The government on one hand is correctly telling us to socially distance as in the recent town / city measures and yet they also have created huge student clusters in those towns and cities.
