NEW: latest data now show a clear rise in hospital admissions in the UK, and numbers could climb rapidly.

Admissions & patient numbers in the North West are ~straight lines on a log-scale: exponential growth
I suspect there will be a delay. The vaccines are still working but we just haven't vaccinated enough people yet.

I donít know who that bloke is, but the U.K. official stats donít reflect that, hospital admissions down., deaths up slightly but still well below previous.

Renowned by those following the pandemic closely as the person who does the daily updates of the coronavirus trajectory tracker for the FT.

Re: Coronavirus

He is a data journalist at the FT.

And yes it's not skyrocketing yet but there is a sign of an increase towards the end of May with a further week's data about to come out tomorrow. The FT is linking to specific areas where it's increasing.

We'll see but all I imagine it'll prompt caution to delay. You need to tackle exponential growth before it starts.

Sounds about right.

People who link to twitter posts in order to make a point should step back and realise that twitter is just the modern equivalent of women gossiping over the garden fence, absolutely pointless when trying to win (or start) an argument

Well no because someone who is trained to analyse data and does it every day is more qualified to spot trends.

Besides he isn't the only one now getting concerned that we're talking about a wave rather than a small increase in cases.

The tweets are just a more accessible form of this article: https://www.ft.com/content/f2ae00ee-...e-49f5cb540321

Re: Coronavirus

In that case, link to the article and not a mouthpiece of your desired preference

Much more believable than the opinion of some oddball on twitter

Re: Coronavirus

He is the writer of the article and FT seemingly randomly enforces it's paywall. The thread I linked to is a distinct summary of the article.

Re: Coronavirus

aah yes of course, the paywall.

You would think that any media source with a great story, that is important enough to be shared with the general public, would not be hidden behind a wall.

Or is it maybe not a great story, and simply yet more data driven analysis that only has interest to those who think it's worth paying for?

Yeah, it us wandering up a bit. The data presented in those tweets is focussing on the North West and you can narrow down to that region on the website Pierre posted - https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/deta...e=North%20West

If you reallt want to dig down in the weeds, you can see lots of data here - https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/details/download . Here are hospitalisations for the North West for example - https://api.coronavirus.data.gov.uk/...ses&format=csv

Dunno. I do the Torygraph crossword every day. I used to do the Grauniad cryptic (when I was at grammar school).

FT is too pink for me.
