They are now saying on the site it is only deaths data that 'were not' updated today due to 'data processing difficulties'.

But as of yet nothing has been updated. Just that comment added.
Well we can rest in the knowledge that if anyone can find it, you will.

Anyhow unless something drastic changes soon looks like I will not be able to update today's data. And not sure if they will publish it separately befotre tomorrows.

Hopefully by the morning they will have fixed this.

So more people have died of flu 7 weeks on the run, it's evidently clear this virus has changed or we have a lot of people immune as apparently it is more contagious and deadly than flu, yet less people are catching and dying of it.

My personal opinion is that it will turn out to be less deadly once a full review is done, but more contagious which is why so many died in a short space of time.

No one can say lockdown and social distancing explains these stats as both viruses are living under the same set of conditions and one is causing more damage than the other.

This is certainly possible. That age range data from Scotland posted earlier was fascinating as they had tested plenty in the over 45s but they were just not catching it in any great numbers. The ones who were were in the younger age ranges.

So either that is because they are self isolating more than the young or the virus has changed tack in terms of infectivity and as a result has become less deadly.

Though it was obviously less deadly than the UK data implies - andfor some time it has been apparent it is reallysub 1% because we weremissing and not counting so many untested asymptomatic cases.

The Twitter thread that was posted yesterday regarding T Cells and immunity from other coronaviruses (common cold) may turn out to be right. The fact it's a new virus, with no vaccine and less people are consistently dying of it than flu, which a lot of people are vaccinated against is odd. Unless the mortality rate is something like 0.02% and almost everyone has had it then something else is stopping people from catching it and getting ill.

I dont disagree that is possible and I hope you are right and we work this out before the economy tanks and Christmas is cancelled this Winter.

They have updated againto confirm no data will be added until tomorrow.

The Twitter thread is full of people showing utter disdain over this and you can well see from reading it why telling the country to act sensibly is a tough ask.

See next page as there IS new (bad) data. They just have not added it.
