In Scotland, the 7 day average of new cases is 159 .
The UK 7 day average of new cases is 3 777.
The UK population is 12.2 times greater than Scotland’s so, all things being equal, the daily number of cases should be around 1 900 but is, in fact 3 777, twice as high.
Intuitively, I’d have thought that the above would mean Scotland had a lower R number than the UK. Why doesn’t it?
Over to you readers.
