Better than anywhere in GM now. Over the hump I would say.

Those England hospital deaths should have this thread in shock.

But no comments?

I am horrified.

1012 in England in hospital alone.

Utterly tragic

We will have a giant number of deaths today - maybe over 1500.

Have we become so desensitised to the lives ended by the virus?

Or how we have got to this point?
Many occurred over the weekend. But yeah its horrific.
Sadly it will go higher yet next Wednesday and probably the Wednesday after that. The baked in numbers from previous new cases make it inevitable.
The new variant is a bummer.

It seems they don't have the supply to go any faster.
They do have the supply.
Read the vaccination plan.
The issue is batch testing and it won't be sorted for a week and a half. Specialised work and it can't be rushed as having a bad vaccine batch in the wild would be a disaster.
We could be doing 400k+ a day if we sort it though

Terrible numbers but not unexpected. I think it’s another 2 weeks or so before we see improvement. 194 patients in Warrington hospital currently. The highest since it started. 1500 plus positive cases last week. These decisions made at Christmas are really biting hard now.

There's a Brazilian variant? Fucking hell, this'll never end.
There will be loads of variants.
I doubt the mutation will be enough to make the vaccine not work, maybe less efficacious but I don't think any will stop it working. Not for a few years anyway.

NORTH WEST DATA

KNOWSLEY had 256 cases today and its Pop score rose by 169 to 8267. Higher than anywhere in GM.

Its weekly Pop score rose by 117 from 1344 to 1461. One of the worst in the UK and far above anywhere in GM.

WIRRAL had 427 cases - down slightly from 435 but still one of the highest yet. Its pop rose by 132 to 5489 and its weekly Pop is up 55 to 981. Again well above anywhere in GM.

LIVERPOOL had 621 cases - down from 700 and looks to be plateauing. Still double Manchester. And its Pop wet up by 125 to 7300. Versus Manchester that rose by 65 to 7309.

So almost certainly Liverpool will tomorrow have a higher Pop score than Manchester for the first time ever.

Liverpool's weekly Pop is at 1088 - now above the areas in Kent. And double Manchester.

BURNLEY had a better day and its pop score only rose by 99 - one less than Stockport. But at 8703 is the second
highest in the NW.

The only one above it is

BLACKBURN 156 cases today - up from 143. Which rose its Pop score by 104 today. Taking it to 9147 and heading to become the first 10% infected place in the NW which when it gets to 10,000 will be.

It has Merthyr in Wales ahead of it but their Pop only rose by 74 today to 9866 so might take another 2 or 3 days.

The UK has done extremely well with vaccine procurement but I'm puzzled with the situation with the Moderna vaccine. The UK got its orders in for this well before the EU but it appears the EU is starting to receive it whereas we won't until late March/early April.
