Coronavirus data published

The Department of Health and Social care has shared with me in a briefing this afternoon the five ‘metrics’ used which feeds into decision-making on tiering across the country.

These are:

  1. 7-day case rate per 100,000 population;
  2. 7-day case rate in over-60s per 100,000 population;
  3. rate at which cases are rising or falling (% week on week change on rate);
  4. positivity rate – people tested positive/people tested in a 7-day period; and;
  5. NHS pressures – admissions/hospitalisation and patients ventilated.
