Funny how this isn't widely reported all over the media. It really puts it all to scale how low the threat of COVID is now and would probably help those people who are still scared.

Just setting the record straight: Tuesday may be a supposed "catch-up day", but it's also one of the lowest case counts announced each week.

In recent weeks, Tuesdays have been:

w/c 14/06: lowest
w/c 7/06: second lowest
w/c 31/05: lowest
w/c 24/05: second lowest
w/c 17/05: third lowest

I'm just pointing this out in case people are thinking something like "Today is Tuesday, the cases are always higher because it's the weekend catch-up", as that's wholly incorrect.

The broad pattern is Saturday - Tuesday to be broadly equal with the case count kicking up on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Tuesday and Wednesday are catch up days, and not Monday. Monday reflects the reporting that happened on the Sunday, i.e. not much. Remember Monday's announcing happens at 4pm on Monday so logically can't be the announcing of Monday's reporting.

So do I.

Maybe people weren't saying "Tuesday is artificially higher", but it sounded like it. In case they were, I just wanted to highlight the trend from my spreadsheet!

The 7-day average growth for UK cases has remained pretty much constant for 7 days now, wavering between 31 and 34%.

31/5 needs discounting because it was a bank holiday Monday.

14/6 is interesting.

As ever you really can't read these without taking into account the virtually random adjustments PHE make, That's why NannaFrozen is right about the 7 day average - which is creeping up but extremely slowly.
