ZOE APP DATA

AGAIN MONDAY DELAYED DATA NOT TODAYS

REGIONS:-




North West UP for first time in a few days to 713 / 946 FROM 697 / 929

NW still in SIXTH place of the 12 regions - lowest place in months

Behind Scotland (now TOP) Yorkshire (now Second), Wales - rise to third yesterday, N Ireland (fallen to fourth). And North East in fifth place.



Scotland TOP is UP - on 909 / 1207 FROM 897 / 1198

Yorkshire in second is DOWN on 802 / 1082 FROM 846 / 1134

WALES rises to third UP on 749 / 1086 FROM 727 / 1013

N Ireland DOWN again on 476 / 1384 FROM 523 / 1449 - It has been falling like a stone from top a few days ago. And now goes below Wales.

And North East now in fifth also UP up to 640 / 1041 FROM 624 / 1029.



London has inched UP again too on 598 / 765 FROM 589 / 756 but still in lowest watch zone with only East England lower BUT UP on 581 / 757 FROM 577 / 754.

So very close and London could soon be the best in England here

Will be the furloughed trying to get it extended for a few more months off!
You do realise nobody chose to be on furlough? And for many of those who were, as well as dealing with the pandemic they had to deal with the mental health pressure of having potential redundancy loom over the heads for months and months on end.

We know lockdown is the best way to quickly reduce the burden on the NHS and ICU
Lockdowns are completely unneccessary though in a post-vaccine world and do more harm than good. There is zero evidence that lockdown is specifically necessary compared to any other single measure.

We can halt most transmission chains by preventing people from meeting up in homes for a short period. The goal can never be to end all transmission but to break these chains and stopping people from meeting up in houses is the way to do it.

So basically, 2-3 weeks, no household contact with other households in homes. After that we go back to normal and then rinse and repeat or extend as necessary. Aside from that, life goes on.

ZOE APP DATA


AGAIN MONDAY DATA DELAYED - TODAY HOPEFULLY LATER


GREATER MANCHESTER:-


Oldham still rising and retains top spot and joined by its neighbour borough.


Oldham is UP on 21, 292 FROM 19, 479


Rochdale UP again today tracking Oldham onto 15, 491 FROM 14, 752


Manchester is a surprise still climbing UP and now third on 14, 286 FROM 13, 272. Highest in some time here.

Stockport is now only fourth highest after a run of better numbers in the real data too and DOWN again on 13, 904 FROM 14, 921 - fifth straight fall here.

Trafford - tracking Stockport closely now in the real data is DOWN in fifth on 13, 799 FROM 17, 501

Wigan in sixth but well DOWN again on 11, 024 FROM 13, 890.

Bolton UP in seventh slightly on 10, 271 FROM 9944

Tameside UP in eighth into the higher watch zone on 10, 024 FROM 8844 - though I suspect it is actually well up on these numbers given its real case numbers making it worst in GM. Zoe has always under estimated numbers here.


The other two boroughs are still in the lower watch zone


Salford in ninth DOWN on 9788 FROM 10, 179 - been very flat for days now and has been doing well in the real case numbers


And top of the tree now (and consistent with its current real case performance too) is:-

Bury DOWN slightly on 8475 FROM 8517


Though 8475 is high numbers for the 'low' for GM.



REST OF NORTH WEST


West Lancashire - the region between Bootle, Formby and Southport in west and Wigan is slightly DOWN today on 33, 347 FROM 33, 477 . Still the highest numbers in the North West.


The numbers in the western part of the NW is why GM is faring relatively well and outperforming v the NW as a region at the moment.

Liverpool DOWN on 10, 377 FROM 13, 313


BUT St Helens UP on 28, 260 FROM 28, 103. Well clear in second worst as Chorley and Preston have dropped into the lower 10's in recent days from lower 20's.

These areas are creating the most cases currently in this western part of the region.

Cheshire East - which Andy Hinch will be delighted to hear is still low is slightly UP again on 6363 FROM 6039 - behind everywhere in GM.

And much better than Chester and Cheshire West - like other western parts of the NW driving the regions cases - much higher on 14, 718.

Nobody chose to be on furlough, you sure on that. When I went away in the UK this year half the places couldn't fully open as they couldn't get staff, the reason everywhere was giving was that people were furloughed so didn't want to work. I know people that were furloughed and have had the time of their lives the past year. Granted there were a lot who would have been massively stressed will bills and family commitments, but to a lot it has been one long holiday. Why else would so many people be wishing further lockdowns.

Yes, I'm very sure of that.

"One long holiday"...get your head out of your arse.

THe media today is full of people asking why an October lockdown.

THAT will only happen if rising cases - as seem all but inevitable due to the return of schools in England - create a ripple effect that builds up the hospital numbers as we head into Winter.

The fear over a flu epidemic this Winter is very real. It has been KOd by Covid for 2 years and we have lost the ability to create this year's vaccine on the strains circulating this year as there in effect have not been any of signficance. So we are guessing more than we usually do. Creating a perfect storm for flu to be quite bad this year.

It may not happen for all sorts of reasons. Our learned caution to combat Covid may well cut flu risk too if we do not lose those learned behaviours this Winter. Covid may just suppress flu for a second year as it is more effective at infecting people. We will see. But we have to take the flu PLUS Covid risk of overwhelming the NHS seriously this Winter. Hence the vastly expanded flu jab season starting early and extending to all over 50. And the still likelihood of Covid boosters too this autumn for at least I suspect all over 65.

But the key will always be the hospital numbers that I post here every evening. As of yet these are going up with the cases but not exponentially.

7500 or so as last night in hospital and 1050 or so on ventilators is far below where we were with 40,000 cases in January - entirely because of the vaccines (the numbers then were nearly 40,000 in hospital and 4000 on ventilators).

These kind of numbers would be a huge problem going into Winter even if - as is very likely - far more would survive or have shorter stays in hospital than the weeks of the past wave.

But cases rising will increase hospital data. We are just not yet sure to what degree but it is all but certain to top 10,000 patients by October I would imagine. And they will not want to see that still rising going into the flu season as that could indeed be a huge problem for under resourced and exhausted NHS staff.

So the hospital data - not the cases - is the thing to watch in coming weeks. It will determine if there are further restrictions. Cases WILL rise. But the raw number they rise to is largely irrelevant if most catching it are young, fit and not going into hospital. That is the part of the equation we have yet to determine. And the one that matters.

Because as the weather changes people will meet more and more indoors and those younger, fitter people catching it will start to infect more and more who are vulnerable in circumstances likely to make it easier to spread. How much that happens is the unknown in the equation.

It could literally go either way in coming weeks. And if it goes the wrong way we WILL respond. To protect the NHS.
Another lockdown won't happen with Delta.
There is no longer a willingness of a sufficient percentage of the population to participate to allow it to work.
In a post vaccinatiom world, cases are only a guidence for expected hospitalisations and deaths.
Only vaccination will reduce numbers and sadly too many don't want the jab.
