Sharp fall in Coronavirus deaths in ‘more resilient’ Scotland is third in a row

The number of coronavirus deaths fell in the last 24 hours to 24, down from 64 yesterday and a peak of 81 three days ago. Early days perhaps but this graph from Scotland Coronavirus Tracker suggests, at least, a little optimism is warranted:

And from the BBC, a graph, commendably correct for them, suggesting a flattening of cases and of intensive care cases.

There is a similar trend for the UK as a whole with both deaths and cases beginning to flatten.

In sharp and tragic contrast there were 684 deaths in England. This figure, more than twice as high per capita is, of course, not being reported but concealed within the overall UK figure of 737 to protect the heroic PM from any criticism.

Footnote: The Scottish data includes deaths out of hospitals while that from England does not so the gap may be even greater.

  1. Yes that very point was made on Sky when the interviewee mentioned the deaths in England are not the full monty unlike Ireland and France of course. They just cannot bring themselves to acknowledge Scotland is more transparent and honest about these matters. But I suppose at least we should be thankful the English media are waking up to the discrepancy at long last.
