GM Weekly Pop Scores after today:~

Borough / Score Today / Score 7 days ago / up or down wk to wk/ Testing is % of local population who have tested positive for Covid over past year.

As ever with Pop scores going up is bad, going down good - the higher the number the better or worse depending on direction moving. The Pop Score is total cases in past week versus 100,000 POPulation to even out the comparison versus size and expected cases based on numbers living there.



Rochdale 64 / 88 / Down 24 Testing positive 9.5%

Bolton 57 / 96 / Down 39 Testing positive 9.0%

Oldham 54 / 106 Down 52 Testing positive 9.6%

Tameside 53 / 94 / Down 41 Testing positive 8.0%

Manchester 51 / 94 / Down 43 Testing positive 9.5%

Wigan 48 / 74/ Down 26 Testing positive 8.8%

Stockport 43 / 59 / Down 16 Testing positive 7.1%

Bury 42 / 61 / Down 19 Testing positive 9.0%

Trafford 35 / 75/ Down 40 Testing positive 6.9%

Salford 34 / 81 / Down 47 Testing positive 8.9%



Everyone had a good day and some big falls. These numbers have started looking better every day and all are going in the right direction.

48.3 is the lowest average for the ten boroughs weekly Pop scores I can remember.

Salford stay top with a huge 47 shift inside the week. But only 9 separate the bottom 4 so it is up to anyone to reclaim.


Weekly cases:- Quite a scrap for lowest cases in the week brewing. Even Manchester has nearly halved in 10 days.

Bury 80 Trafford 81 Salford 88 Tameside 119 Stockport 125 Oldham 130 Rochdale 141 Wigan 158 Bolton 163 and Manchester 283

The UK is steadily falling down the list in terms of deaths per million of population.

Has to be the effect of vaccines.

Vaccines and three months of the hardest lock down on earth.

Compare to USA - where they peaked about the same time and have a similar vaccine coverage.

We've dropped over 20x from our peak, US only 3x.

The lock down has had a much bigger effect than vaccines, but now the vaccines are really kicking in too, and should enable us to open up without those figures going south.

We've gone from the worst death rate in the whole world in Jan to one of the lowest now, and outright lowest in Europe.

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.
I think the idea is that you can pick them up from a pharmacy or order them through the post. In our house we have 2 NHS workers and my daughter works in a school so we have more lateral flow tests than we know what to do with!!

Can’t you just get them sent to your house?

I feel in developed countries we've come to the end of our cycle of using adapted Adenoviruses (or similar) off the back of this. They will remain an option whilst they are cheaper than mRNA equivalents, but that won't last forever.

I made a post in the previous thread about how excited I was to see the advancements of mRNA vaccines. On paper they are our trump card in this area of treatment and so rightly or wrongly, we must be thankful that COVID has brought us forward probably 20+ years.
Yep. I mentioned before that Prof Brian Cox (who always stated this wasn't his field and would'nt comment....unlike other scientists throwing their weight around) had heard the industry had advanced considerably through all this.

We need silver linings now we're (hopefully) starting to emerge.
This thread has been very positive over the last few pages today. The cream (truth) does tend to rise to the top and the conspiracy theories are on their last legs and yet another fantasy fizzles away.
I'm looking forward to many new medical advanced announced over the next few years.

With that said, I still cannot shake this bleeding long Covid off. Thought I was on the up and had an eye to run again soon, but lungs got their revenge again. It's a royal bugger.
