3,150 new cases and 60 new deaths in the United Kingdom. Note from the UK Government: "Change to case reporting in England: The way cases are reported has changed. Cases that have been identified through a positive rapid lateral flow test will be removed for people who took Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests within 3 days that were all negative. Cases of this type that were previously reported were removed from the cumulative total, reducing the total by 8,010.

Not sure who’s the biggest anti-Scottish pancake-maker - you or papa.

Could be a tie, I suppose?

Papa was joking.

Chris's comments were uncharacteristically imprecise so he left the door open to such a comment.

Re: Coronavirus

Just a heads up that a person claiming to be a Government statistician has posted that they have been asked not to submit any stats on the day of the funeral of Prince Philip.

If correct, this may be why nobody can find any for that day.

OMG that's awful news. I don't know how I'm going to survive without my daily fix of statistical analysis and conjecture from the chaps at the top of their game.

Hopefully social media will come to the rescue with lots of extrapolated guesswork and opinionated 'result driven' forecasts with which to fill the void.

GP-led sites will not receive any new first-dose Covid vaccine deliveries at all over the next two weeks, NHS England has said.

Speaking in a GP webinar yesterday evening, NHS England primary care director Dr Nikki Kanani said this applied to the weeks commencing 12 and 19 April.

The Government had warned that vaccine supply would take a dip in April amid delivery issues, but the health secretary had previously said some first doses would continue in every week of the month.

Dr Kanani told GPs: ‘We do have a reduced supply over the coming weeks which is why there are no new first-dose deliveries on the week of 12 or 19 April.’

Under-30s who were booked in to receive their first Covid-19 jab will now have their appointments cancelled, following the change in advice on the AstraZeneca vaccine.

From tomorrow anyone aged under 30 who was scheduled for a first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine will have their appointment cancelled.

Individuals will then be asked to contact their GP team to discuss the benefits and risks associated with the AstraZeneca vaccine or another vaccine.

Domestic vaccine passports an absolute slam-dunk. 'Short term' is the subjective part of the headline as real world performance of vaccines, vaccines against variants, etc. is still up in the air.

https://edition.cnn.com/2021/04/09/h...-us/index.html

Meanwhile in the United States they are wondering how to give the Oxford vaccine the Roy Walker treatment - it's good, but it's not right.

Strong indications that emergency use authorisation would be rejected given their abundance of supply of higher efficacy/higher safety vaccines. The problem for the US is how to dump their supplies onto the rest of the world without it looking like they are dumping them.

There's a good reason I don't do full colour British expectionalism.

Fauci said it wasn't because of the AstraZeneca vaccine itself, but rather that it's not necessary in the US right now.
"It's not any indictment against the product. We just have a lot of vaccines," he said.

Print them in dark blue and place a coat of arms on the front and a free drink voucher inside and I'm sure you'll up that acceptance rate to 90%.

China sound like they would be up for any spare AZ vaccines:

China mulls mixing vaccines to improve efficacy of jabs

China is considering the mixing of different Covid-19 vaccines to improve the relatively low efficacy of its existing options, a top health expert has told a conference.

Authorities have to "consider ways to solve the issue that efficacy rates of existing vaccines are not high", Chinese media outlet The Paper reported, citing Gao Fu, the head of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

His comments mark the first time a top Chinese expert has publicly alluded to the relatively low efficacy of the country's vaccines, as China forges ahead in its mass vaccination campaign and exports its jabs around the world.
