Today’s data in the UK sadly indicate that a further 147 deaths have been reported in the last 24 hours due to Covid-19, while transmission of the virus continues to be of concern, with further 37,622 new infections reported in the last 24 hours.




It is worth noting the total number of new coronavirus infections, and deaths due to the virus reported in the last 7 days of Covid-19 data. The total number of coronavirus infections reported in the last 7 days was 267,880 while 947 deaths due to coronavirus have been reported in the last 7 days. This equates on average to around 135 deaths each of the past 7 days.

If this was to be the “new normal” for daily deaths caused by Covid-19, then annually this would equate to around 49,379 deaths.

What is normal about that? What is acceptable about this potential level of deaths?


Latest health care data indicate that there were 1,063 Covid-19 hospital admissions reported on 6 September 2021 (an increase of 197 in the number reported yesterday for 5 September 2021, and the highest daily increase in admissions since 1 September); while 8,098 patients suffering from Covid-19 are currently occupying hospital beds as of 8 September 2021 (highest since 10 March 2021), and 1,060 patients are requiring intensive care support as of 8 September 2021 – all three measures an increasing concern for our over-stretched National Health Service.


TOTALS:

589 days since the first infection due to the SARS-CoV-2 virus was reported in Britain, and 553 days since the first reported death, the virus has now been responsible for infecting over 7 million people (7,168,806 reported, to be precise) in the UK (according to the official reported positive cases data) and responsible for at least 133,988 deaths (within 28 days of first positive test result).

Official data currently indicate there have been 156,888 deaths in total, where the deceased person’s death certificate mentioned COVID-19 as one of the causes, registered up to Friday 27 August 2021, according to Public Health England (PHE).

  • Estimates of the percentage of the population testing positive for COVID-19:

According to the latest Office for National Statistics (ONS) Covid-19 Infection Survey data, COVID-19 infections remained level in England in the week ending 3 September. In Scotland, however, infections increased and were the highest the ONS recorded so far (the Infection Survey began to cover Scotland in September 2020). During the same period, in Northern Ireland, the trend in infections was uncertain, while in Wales, infections increased.

The estimated percentage of the community population (those not in hospitals, care homes or other institutional settings) that had COVID-19 in the latest week was:

  • England: 1 in 70 people (it was 1 in 70 people the week before)
  • Wales: 1 in 65 people (it was 1 in 110 people the week before)
  • Northern Ireland: 1 in 60 people (it was 1 in 65 people the week before)
  • Scotland: 1 in 45 people (it was 1 in 75 people the week before)


Finally, the ONS survey shows that the percentage of people testing positive in England increased for those aged 2 to school Year 11 (typically aged 15-16) and those aged 35-49. The percentage of people testing positive also increased for those aged 70 and over, but the trend was uncertain in the most recent week. The percentage of people testing positive decreased for those aged 25-34 and 50-69.


  • COVID Passport

The latest ONS Opinions and Lifestyle Survey (OPN), for the period 25 August to 5 September, shows that 1 in 10 of all UK adults (11%) across the country has been asked to show proof that they have either been vaccinated against COVID-19, or have recently tested negative (with a PCR test), to be allowed into a venue or event (some large venues such as football stadia and music festivals have already been asking people to prove their COVID-19 status).

The ‘wave-form’ of the Covid-19 pandemic shows no sign of an end any time soon.

For those who don’t, or won’t follow the Science, look at the mathematics. There is absolutely nothing to suggest that coronavirus transmission is under control. In fact, the opposite is more likely.

Estimated ®️ number: (report as of 10 September 2021)

  • Latest R range for England 0.9 to 1.1
  • Latest growth rate range for England: -1% to +1% per day
  • An R value between 0.9 and 1.1 means that, on average, every 10 people infected will infect between 9 and 11 other people. A growth rate of between -1% and +1% means that the number of new infections could be broadly flat, shrinking by up to 1% every day or growing by up to 1% every day. (These estimates represent the transmission of COVID-19 from 2 to 3 weeks ago, due to the time delay between someone being infected, developing symptoms, and needing healthcare.)

To better understand the state of the epidemic in the UK, the UK government recommend “focusing on indicators for the 4 nations of the UK individually, rather than an average value across the UK.” Estimates of the R value and growth rate for different nations can be found via this link.
