Scotland first to fully vaccinate the most at risk

In Scotland, there have been 3 114 deaths among the 85+, 2 663 among the 75-84 and 1 434 among the 65-74, 877 among the 45-64, 82 among the 25-44 and less than 10 in each of the 3 younger groups.

Scotland and Northern Ireland have given 1st doses to 100% of the three oldest groups, most at risk, but only Scotland has also given 2nd doses to 100% of these same groups.

In June, when Wales was first to fully vaccinate 50% of all adults, BBC Wales acknowledged it. BBC Scotland prefers to find evidence of Scotland lagging behind.

  1. Possibly a bit O/T but

    Am I the only one who finds the fact that the 12 week trend in England shows a sudden drop in cases (followed by a flat profile for the past 6 weeks) to be mildly suspicious? Especially when all 3 devolved nations show a rise?

    I suppose it could be that people have gone “Woo hoo! Freedom! and switched off the (next to useless) app? So far fewer real cases are being registered.

    1. England hospital admissions are ~ 7 X ours per head of population. so you’d think their cases should be 7 X ours = 42,000. Currently England are reporting ~ 27,000 for at least 2 weeks. I think you’ve got a point.

  2. The figures for today, thanks to TravellingTabby, are:

    Scotland = 5810
    NI = 1210
    Wales = 2669
    England = 29286
    TOTAL = 38975

    No idea how to show the graphic, but their weekly average has virtually flattened over the last 6 weeks.

    Could that be correct? Doesn’t look right to me…
