Great, thank you, we will give this a try - and this doesn't make a difference in terms of dead RNA picked up by PCR but not antigen? We know we don't have an active infection so not worried about that aspect.

We all did the test the thorough way, with throat, and all very negative! So hopefully a good sign the PCR would be too.

Here is what I have extracted from today's data release. It does now look like the peak of the current wave was more than a week ago. Hopefully that will show in the ONS data on Friday.

England cases 15,141 (27,121 last Monday)
England deaths 111 (126) (up 15.2% week on week)
Patients admitted in England 1,754 (2,005 on the 11th)
Patients in hospital in England 14,044 (13,336 on the 11th)
Patients in ventilation beds 287 (274 on the 13th)
Vaccinated up to and including 19 July 2022:
First dose: 45,134,956
Second dose: 42,347,786
Booster: 33,329,132

Today's weekly data from the ONS survey. In the week ending 13-14 July2022:

One in 17 people in England had Covid (last week one in 19)
One in 17 in Wales had Covid (last week one in 17)
One in 20 in Northern Ireland had Covid (last week one in 17)
One in 15 in Scotland had Covid (last week one in 16)

As I have said before, this data shows the situation more than a week ago. The rapid rises of a few weeks back have abated. The data could still be consistent with the peak of the current wave being a week ago.

As a slightly OT aside, does anyone have comments either way on the Everything Genetic LFD tests sold at some pharmacies. Long story short, had a sore throat Tuesday/Wednesday (mostly subsided) and cough Thursday. I've run out of free tests so had to buy some. The instructions vary a little from the NHS provided tests so I'm slightly concerned (just waiting for my first result).

That looks like a standard LFD made in China - if you delve into the paperwork there is manufacturer in there. There's any amount of repackaging and remarketing, there are not actually that many manufacturers. So long as you give your throat and nasal passage a good twirl, use six drops of saline, they all more or less have the same way of doing things. I wouldn't be concerned, but do further tests using that kit. Sore throats are the current main symptom.

One in 19 in Wales had Covid (last week one in 17)

The ONS confirming that infection levels are falling though NI is having a bit of a wobble.

This weeks data for England:

England cases 7,368 (10,115 last Monday) - down 34.3% week on week
England deaths down 27.5% week on week
Patients admitted in England 1,120 (1,345 on the 25th)
Patients in hospital in England 9,817 (11,914 on the 27th)
Patients in ventilation beds 232 (273 on the 27th)
Vaccinated up to and including 2 August 2022:
First dose: 45,173,642
Second dose: 42,475,448
Booster: 33,405,904

All of the figures are now heading in the right direction. Looking at deaths, we hit an average of just over 183 per day in the middle of last month. By my reckoning the current figure would be about half that.

Nearly, it's 107 per day UK wide.

Just in case anyone wonders, the ONS are having a rest today. They have changed the way they get their results and have decided not to release any data today. Normal service resumes next Friday in theory.
