NHS UK: The Dog Ate My Data, But Thousands of People Get Hospitalised With COVID-19 Each Day, Thousands Die Each Week

Does this look like the pandemic is under control???


And we’re not even seeing all the data.


They finally admit or confess to having data issues in “weekly deaths with COVID-19 on the death certificate” (soon 200,000). I mentioned this last week. In their own words:

Delay to update of weekly deaths with COVID-19 on the death certificate

Because of a technical issue, weekly registered deaths with COVID-19 on the death certificate have not been updated.

Figures will be added in a future release.

Some time in May (around the middle of the month) total deaths will exceed 200,000. Why was data lost or delayed? Microsoft issues again? It’s another blunder that they use Microsoft Office to handle such sensitive and important data.

There are other issues today, but those aren’t even the full story. We have no decrease in cases, only decreases in testing (lowest levels since 2020). To quote:

Update to headline cases only for England

Because of a technical issue, it has only been possible to update figures for cases for England (nation) by report date.

Case metrics by specimen date for England and for English regions and local authorities will be updated in the next release.

If we tested more, the numbers would look a lot more scary. So the government decided not to test enough (which means it easier for COVID-19 to spread).

Tests are meant to help identify who should isolate, not to merely affirm that one’s sickness (or hospital stay) is, indeed, due to COVID-19.
