    I was a little confused by Johnson's comments today that in my mind do not tie up:

    1. The R is between 0.8 and 0.9 nationally.
    2. The prevalence of COVID-19 in our nation is currently increasing.

    Both of these statements can't be true at the same time. Anyone?
    More testing coupled with people being more careful.

    In other words - we're finding more, but it is amongst groups of people who are generally
    very careful and not spreading it.

      Sorry, I donít think that covers it.

      An R rate of under 1 means prevalence is going down, yet Johnson said prevalence is going up. It seems that the R rate is out of date.

      51 deaths in the last 5 days reported from in NHS hospitals, which is the lowest number since before lockdown.

      Absolutely bizarrely, in that same 5 days, PHE outside hospital have reported 370 deaths. Itís simply astonishing, 3 weeks since the review was ordered and still no resolution to this quite clear total nonsense, 7 times the amount of people are dying outside of hospital from COVID than in hospital? Bull***t.
      Exactly this. We are getting totally scammed with the number reporting. How on earth are all those people managing to get to the point of death without going to hospital? The only explanation is itís care homes, which means that all thatís happening is itís still swimming round the care home eco system. The other is the number are total nonsense, which has been pretty obvious since this whole thing started.

      This is hopefully good news and not just an unsafe rush job.

      Lets just hope this figure is about the same in 10 days to a fortnights time.
      If things continue this way I would hope we could report the first 'zero' day in NHS hospitals within 10 days. If not very close.

      Hopefully a mixture of better treatments and more milder cases being identified leading to better numbers.

      Hospitalizations and those in hospital are falling or stable.

      Will depend if the uptick of positive cases has an impact.

      Could at least be useful information for the rest of the world to look at, in terms of how a vaccine might affect spread of this virus moving forwards.

      Of course it's a rush job! There's a major propaganda effort to claim less cases and deaths per capita in order to intimate that Putin and the Russian health service are, not only on top of Covid-19 but, ahead of Western nations in tackling the virus..... If they even actually had a vaccine it's one they would have nicked.

      Itís an absolute shambles.

      Itís almost if they want to keep this type of reporting so they can do what they want.
