1279 hospitalisations in England on the 26th of October.

Not quite triple the peak I was optimistically projecting when it all kicked off.

Wow, was I overoptimistic or what?

The only saving grace is that the doubling rate is very gradually slowing. From just under every 8 days when I started that projection (just under an R of 1.5) to just below every 10.5 days now (an R just under 1.25). We need that tendency to accelerate a bit.

If this is representative of the overall picture, then itís very concerning

As those in hospital who acquire Covid typically have a worse outcome than those overall, letís hope we get a handle on it.

I really don't look much into numbers of infected. My only metric is the percentage of free beds and icu beds available as once these are taken the percentage of deaths rapidly increases.

From what I have read the treatment if caught early enough can prevent the worst effects and there are now even calls for suspected cases to already take preventative drugs at home on first suspicion of a covid case.

I can't find the article but it was an interesting take...

That is what should definitely not be happening, if PPE and infection control is being used correctly how are so many people actually getting infected whilst in hospital!

I suspect because they are so busy with a reducing staff level - stuff gets missed or mistakes made.

Some rather depressing graphs posted by "Malmesbury" over on politicalbetting.com (for context, he's been excellent at recording the straightforward data and presenting it with no agenda either way.







And, for context on the plausibility or otherwise of false positives causing any significant issues:



Given that the most plausible highest false positive rate in July was realistically about 0.15% (to allow for the prevalence level of the sample being no more than the lowest level of the ONS survey at the time), it would have to have increased by at least fifty times over to have any significant affect on the latest cases.

Also PPE and IPC measures are not 100% bullet proof, off the top of my head I'm sure only 70% of HCAIs are completely preventable.

For those interested in another viewpoint Ivor is back with another video. The Euromomo graphs at the end are interesting:

Thank you.

What is the difference between in hospital and admissions? In hosp seems to have more Scots than Welsh and Admissions the other way round.

How does that work in practice ? Any thoughts?
