Further proof that if you vaccinate your people you all but end the pandemic in your nation,
Wales has the biggest number vaccinated in the British Isles and its numbers keep tumbling.
0 deaths - was 0 last week
22 cases - was 54 last week - lowest in UK since Summer last year.
0.4% positivity - was 1.0% last week
As was posted above Bolton needs to speed up vaccinations ASAP and reach the reluctant that seems to be a key reason they are not doing as well as other places.
I think i (slightly) disagree with your conclusion - Wales has no more 2nd vaccinations (%) and only ~10% more first doses (77 vs 67) than other countries, is this enough to cause the disparity in positivity that you say?
could it be that they have a much lower testing rate per million? or perhaps the dwindling pool of unvaccinated people there is far smaller than England's, as a %age, and therefore the virus has smaller contiguous areas of unvaccinated people? im unsure.
if you're right, should we see precisely the same downward trajectory in England as has been experienced in Wales? or are there too many confounding variables at play? (such as variants, demographics etc). Just a thought.
