Scotland has had the highest infection rate, since the end of August, but it’s falling very fast so BBC Scotland are going to need to be smart on this to keep it going.
I know, don’t use the actual data based on testing, use the ONS estimates for the period ending 11th September, a week ago, and present them with the word ‘still’ in the headline.
And, tell a big lie:
‘The latest daily figures show 5,529 new cases in the past 24 hours.’
Huge fib. Due to technical issues, no data were released for the 15th so those 5 529 are for the last 48 hours, therefore really low.
And the 87 in ICU? That’s down!
And over the whole pandemic?
The lowest overall infection rate in the UK due to better leadership, NHS and compliance by us? Not in the public interest, Glen, Sarah?
