The 7-day average infection level falls for the 19th day in a row but today’s figure is up from yesterday’s.
I know they’re only ‘wee’ at the Herald and 7-day averages are bit beyond their ken, Ken, but a one-day change tells you nothing and a 7-day average is a reliable indicator of change and, of course, is ‘news.’
Other real news, the number in hospital has fallen from what looks to have been a peak of 2 053 four days ago on the 22nd, to 2 010 in the last 24 hours.
The number in ICU too has fallen from an apparent peak of 161 on the 22nd to 149 in the last 24 hours.
Finally, in case anyone is interested, the infection rate in the Johnson Regime’s world-beating system remains at more than twice that in Scotland – 3 601 compared to 1 661, per 100 000 population.
