Today’s Data in Focus

Today’s data indicates the horrendous fact that 6,485 people have lost their lives in the last 7 days in the UK, while 788,789 new cases have been reported in the last 14 days.  

Note: The data for deaths attributed to COVID-19 – each following a reported positive test result for COVID-19 within 28 days of their death.

Over 4,000 new daily hospital admissions, over 32,000 patients suffering from Covid-19 already occupying hospital beds, and over 3,000 requiring intensive care support.  

The pressure on our NHS has reached new levels, levels that are becoming extremely difficult for hospitals and their staff to manage.

The data is now reaching record levels, and we must never forget the data represent real people suffering, real people dying, and a situation that many would argue is so much worse because of poor decision-making and delayed action.🔷
