Covid cases plummet in Scotland as they surge in England and Wales


BBC Scotland regularly reports when Scotland has the highest Covid 19 infection rate in the UK.

On 8 July, we read: Scotland still has highest Covid rate in the UK and last week they were careful to remind us The number of Covid-19 infections in Scotland rose last week.

They’re saying nothing this week as cases fell sharply in Scotland by 18% and by 606 to 2 841.

In England, they climbed by 13% to 28 167 making the rate pretty much the same as in Scotland and so not newsworthy for the agenda.

The rate in Wales climbed 4% and in Northern Ireland fell 12%.

  1. Be careful. The Universities are starting back which may increase case numbers because of imported Covid+ cases as happened in Autumn 2020.

    The virus is not done with us yet.


  2. Last ons survey:

    1.41% in England (1 in 70 people)

    1.31% in Wales (1 in 75 people)

    1.25% in Northern Ireland (1 in 80 people)

    1.88% in Scotland (1 in 55 people)

    More plummeting required.
