approx 9750 people day every week in just England & Wales.

That would mean COVID related deaths = 0.035% of total death in the last week.

I dont disagree that there's some variance/fluidity. but a near 100% increase week on week should at least raise an eyebrow ?

Small data sets are notoriously "noisy" Let's see what the averages do.

Re: Coronavirus

Seems like Scotland figures are decreasing . .

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/uk-scotland-57896887

Slight rise in Wales . .

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-57900599

N. Ireland sees a slight rise in hospital cases, but a drop of those in intensive care . .

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-57905606


*disclaimer: all figures probably contain inaccuracies due to dates of infection/death and reported dates of infection/death

Re: Coronavirus

Also, Scottish school holidays began almost a month ago. There has been less mixing of children, but perhaps more significantly, a lot less twice-weekly lateral flow testing.

Infection rates really are meaningless now. It’s all about how much pressure hospitals are under.

I suppose you believe that stopping to let pedestrians cross the road at a pedestrian crossing is "virtue signalling"?

(only if you use your indicators )

i think stopping at a pedestrian crossing is defined in law as is mask wearing in a supermarket.

At this moment there is no law about mask wearing in supermarkets. Legally no requirement but individual companies may apply recommendations but they are not legally enforceable.

I don’t think they need to be legally enforceable for them to refuse to serve you (should they so wish)

No, because it’s the law.

Trust me, if the average motorist was not compelled to allow pedestrians to cross at a Zebra crossing due them having the right of way or forced to via a red light, most wouldn’t.
