From the end of last thread...
Are universities doing their weekly testing on a Monday?
The university of Nottingham are publishing daily figures, not weekly:

Thanks for the new thread

Big jump in the number of cases today.

A good graph from RP showing the downward trend in Liverpool with tier 3 and mass testing dates shown
Cantaloupeisland · 12/11/2020 21:47
563 deaths today, not much less than yesterday
Augustbreeze · 12/11/2020 21:57
Can I ask, are there figures anywhere for how many people have actually died of other causes within 28 days of a positive test?
I just want to be able to refute the deniers! I'm sure the figure is a drop in the ocean compared to the 50,000+, but would like to be able to quote it!
Or is it tricky because how do you know if Covid caused the (eg) heart attack or not?

I think if they die within 28 days of a covid positive then they are counted in the numbers. I had an older relative with end stage cancer who died in the first wave. He caught covid in hospital but his death certificate said covid, no mention of the cancer.
Firefliess · 12/11/2020 22:11
@Augustbreeze You can look at the numbers who have Covid listed on their death certificate as the cause of death. I think it's 60,000 plus - so actually higher than the numbers dying within 28 days of a test (mainly due to lack of testing early on in the spring, and to a lesser degree people dying from Covid after more than 28 days). It's published by ONS.

Thanks for the new thread.
Augustbreeze · 12/11/2020 22:18
Yes sorry I didn't mean within 28 days did I (doh!)
Thanks @Firefliess. However the 60,000+ is those with Covid as one of the causes of death, isn't it?
I want to find out how many got "run over by a bus" (or whatever) within 28 days of a positive test so it was counted as a Covid death. Yes, that's what I should have asked in the first place, apologies!

From ONS -
" • Of the deaths registered in Week 44, 1,379 mentioned “novel coronavirus (COVID-19)”, accounting for 12.7% of all deaths in England and Wales; this is an increase of 401 deaths compared with Week 43 (when there were 978 deaths involving COVID-19, accounting for 9.1% of all deaths).
• Of the 1,379 deaths that involved COVID-19, 1,196 had this recorded as the underlying cause of death (86.7%"

BigChoc says Hi
but is having much too much fun in her real world to be back in a hurry
MRex · 12/11/2020 22:41
Look, I made a prison for @AnyFucker's .
@FATEdestiny - thanks, good to know. Shame it isn't that.
Augustbreeze · 12/11/2020 23:11
Gosh look what Zoe are doing:
Schools can register as a school, upload what bubbles they have, then parents input symptoms for children and Zoe collates it all and reports to school (who in turn can report to parents).
Schools data may become available, at least to schools. I wonder what the DfE thinks!
NoGoodPunsLeft · 13/11/2020 06:56
What a great idea, I wonder how many will take it up. I think I'm going to email DD's school to suggest it
NeurotrashWarrior · 13/11/2020 07:02
NeurotrashWarrior · 13/11/2020 07:04
Great idea about Zoe. Unfortunately I suspect the schools that need it the most won't get the parental participation.
NeurotrashWarrior · 13/11/2020 07:06
Glad bigchoc is well and enjoying the great outdoors lots.
MRex · 13/11/2020 07:19
I want BigChoc to come back here.
cathyandclare · 13/11/2020 09:13
Signing in with RP131's slide showing where the deaths come from, 317 from NHS England, 152 from PHE and 45. 34 and 15 from Scotland , Wales and NI.

This is the second time the guardian have queried the validity of the lateral flow tests.
If used on asymptomatic people I suppose it's better than nothing and will find more cases than only testing with symptoms.
But it's possibly not the holy grail it's claimed to be?
MRex · 13/11/2020 10:43
Maybe they forgot they did an article already? Or were disappointed the other papers didn't see it as such a big deal, so trying again?
NeurotrashWarrior · 13/11/2020 10:51
It was previously linked to reports about councils being offered the tests to use how they wished. They apparently are best done by hcp.
