Yes, Katowice numbers probably scary. NB They didn't seem to be reporting deaths at all some days over Easter so that may be a huge catch-up; 7 day average was about 300 last week.
Retired coal miners in South Wales and the impact on the lungs from decades underground was a factor in why they had such high death rates for the population size last year.

Havent really been following the covid news much lately.

I was reading that we were to have a asymptomatic test twice a week. Our local testing centre is closing which now instead of a 5 minute drive with easy parking for hundreds of cars. We are meant to driver about over an hour round trip to two small villages try and find somewhere to park , twice a week. Sadly I wont have time for this anymore.

More good hospital data - details above. NW had the best day today.

Highlight UK now has UNDER 3000 patients in hospital with Covid in all 4 nations combined.

For first time in 6 months.

Thought you might like to know this a day or two before the media bother to find that out.
