Don’t know.  Only comparison given on sky ticker compared new case numbers with c.3,100 yesterday.

Just had a look and there were 8, so a 2.5 times increase.

Bangkok Ladyboys went down a treat ... so probably do them again  ;D ;D

Have to say,HMRC and DVLA sites are generally excellent so government can do it, sometimes.

I'm not sure how easy it is to move around testing capacity so I'll give the benefit of the doubt. I won't think of them as being anything other than a shambles for not estimating and having ready the capacity we need now around the country.

I see Boris is saying we are doing more than the rest of Europe ( not too early to use this info....) , but is this true and more importantly are other nations struggling to get tests?


It’s true with regard to Spain, France, Germany yes. We are doing more per capita. The comparison with Germany might be a bit early - their ability to rapidly expand testing has been demonstrated earlier in the year, if they need it it’s likely there.

I wouldn’t be surprised if some of our test results at the moment or in the near future are coming from Germany to be honest.

Well HMRC must have improved and DVLA is fairly straightforward but so should booking a test.

We'll just have to wait girl the world class app, when it come back from holiday in the aisle of Wight, to save us all.

Always worth being wary of interpreting trends with small figures.

A nice way to get a read on the trend difference from last week is to use something that is a standardised population using a seven day average (which accounts for some of the artefacts/noise of differences between days of the week etc)

This is the last month

Absolutely but it does back up a lot of what has been said over the last week or so, that deaths would start to rise a few weeks after the cases started to rise.

The website is so primitive as well.  The sort of thing I built for a college project.. in 2004.
That would be an improvement on the NHS history of computer software though. ;D
I had cause to visit this webpage a few days ago:

http://www.sdcourt.ca.gov/portal/page?_pageid=55,1&_dad=portal&_schema=PORTAL

That's the Superior Court of California home page. It looked so bad, I had to have sneak under the hood: yep, tables-based layout for an important government agency. ;D

And, why, oh why is the home page that horrible address? ???

Surprised, I thought they looked at the numbers per thousand and then took a decision.
Newcastle 64 per 100.000.
Liverpools number has shot up, from 66 per 100.000 a week ago to
106 per 100.000.  not looking good, pictures of Concert square at the weekend were awful. chocka block.

Think it's the rate of change and where/why it's happening too. If it's like a single outbreak, say at a factory, it seems they just focus on that without needing to bring in measures for the whole community. Week before Newcastle was 50 cases per 100k. And similar increases across the NE. 40 cases per 100k is when government start looking at measures. Why Rotheram was out the other week warning about Liverpool and Merseyside generally being on the brink of further measures being brought in.

Yeah, that's what I read, they don't just bring a lock down if the figures shoot up they look to see if they can put the rise to a out break in a factory etc but Liverpool has been rising weekly so I am not sure this is a reason for the big rise, we shall see but I can see a local lockdown coming in soon.

To be honest, I deleted that comment because I hadn't actually read what the exemption was for, both from the Tories and the SNP. There isn't actually specific exemptions for hunting - its just for outdoor organised sports.

I think Irish tests go to Germany too. Not sure what volume. Well thats what my mother said.

We were watching channel four doing a report from Frankfurt Airport which is now more busy than Heathrow. The reporter got tested in the Airport, result in 6 hours and no quarantine.
Typical Germans as a certain gin soaked Scot once said.

What's the magical X in 100,000 cases relate to? Does anyone know the science behind why that is considered to be an outbreak? What pushes an area into a red threshold?

Is it in relation to the R value? Or is there an assumed knock on effect of hospitilisations / deaths per X number of cases?

The Government seem to be ready to lock down whole regions (I've see the whole of the North West mentioned) when there are area's that have had no cases whatsoever.

As an example, I looked at cases per area in Warrington yesterday as it's where my parents live and whilst there was an increase, there was only 5 in their whole area in the last week with 13 in the area that was the highest. The numbers as a collective look big (ish) but many areas had 0-2 cases only!

I don't have any problem with Germany doing the lab part of our tests of it means we have an effective testing programme.

@7777 I think cases per 100k is like xG. A very useful metric, but you have to see the bigger picture.

Actually... If we had to spend loads of money on test equipment and train up lots of staff, then it might not be a bad idea using German companies.( Depending on how long we expect to need the testing capacity). Rather that than companies set up here by Tory mates. And obviously this only counts of the Germans still process our tests when their need Ramos up.

To be honest I'm quite sure there'll be Tory mates over in Germany..

There is (should be) another option though... as in we make use of our supposed great scientific industry and create a top class testing network in this country, regardless of who the lab owner is best mates with, which we can manage efficiently and not require to send tests abroad.

This tweet from a member of Independent SAGE certainly makes "interesting" reading if true.

I’m hearing from a well-connected person that government now thinks, in absence of testing, there are 38,000 infections per day. Chris Whitty is advising PM for a two week national lockdown.

Surely he's added an extra zero to that?

Just cant see how it could be at that level at all. Surveys would suggest we might be at the 5000 range maybe but 38000 is a bit of a stretch.

It seemed a bit out there to me as well, only reposted because of the original poster not being a complete nobody.
