Here’s a question from below the line worth addressing.
Andrew, please do something about new case reporting. The best rule of thumb daily figure is going to be hospital admissions, not daily new cases, nor even a daily total in hospitals figure.
Reporting a 61% increase in a weekly new cases figure alongside a study suggesting R is falling back to c1 needs a stable context – ie daily hospital admissions. And show us the full graph for admissions from when they first were in the tens per day.
