Christopher Bowyer is away so he isn’t able to do his usual graphs this week (except for the Vallance one I put up earlier), so I’ve done a few graphs myself from the figures at https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk.
First of all, here’s Covid positive ‘tests’ (ie. SARS-CoV-2 positive tests) vs Covid deaths for the UK.
And here’s the same positive ‘tests’ vs Covid daily hospital admissions for the UK.
All three together.
As can be clearly seen, the number of Covid ‘cases’, ie the SARS2 positive tests mean very little.

Would be great to overlay the number of test per day to see how much the rise in positive tests is down to increased testing.
George Orwell’s theme in “1984” was that those who seek to control us have to control the language — changing meanings as required. “War is Peace”, etc.
A “Case” has a well defined medical meaning. A case is a person who presents to a medical professional with signs & symptoms of a disease. Signs are things which the doctor can observe, such as the yellow coloration of skin & eyes associated with jaundice. Symptoms are things which a patient reports, such as stomach ache. A healthy person with no signs & symptoms who tests positive in what (as Hector has shown) is a rather complex subtle test is not a “case” in any meaningful medical sense.
Even with all the huge expenditures on the CovidScam, there do not appear to be publicly available data identifying the true medical cases among the positive tests. We can guess from the ratio of hospital admissions to positive tests that the number of true Covid medical cases is rather small.
No wonder the Usual Suspects are twisting the normal meaning of words — the better to keep what they call the “herd” frightened and pliable.
I have looked at some data and some of the hospitalisation numbers in here I can’t believe – https://www.england.nhs.uk/statistics/statistical-…
At 30th Sept in England:
Total beds occupied -112,228
Total beds occupied with Covid – 2,069 or 1.84% of capacity
Total mechanical ventilator beds occupied – 2,702
Total mechanical ventilator beds occupied with Covid – 285 or 10.55%
Number of patients admitted with Covid on that day – 59
Number of inpatients diagnosed with Covid (last 24 hours) – 231
Number of confirmed Covid cases discharged from hospital (last 24 hours) – 236
Entire month of September:
Number of patients admitted with Covid – 1152
Number of inpatients diagnosed with Covid (last 24 hours) – 4,206
Number of confirmed Covid cases discharged from hospital (last 24 hours) – 3,170
The full data is here – https://www.england.nhs.uk/statistics/wp-content/u…
Basically, either people are catching Covid in hospital or the vast majority of cases being reported in hospital are not actually being admitted for Covid and failing a PCR test when being treated for something else. Either way, not good.
Spot on. Gov’t is repeatedly misusing words to increase fear – we’re living in a dystopian Lewis Carrol / Orwell country
Hancock’s HoC lecture all based on falsehoods – Sweden does not exist
Based on his interviews with JHB, Kay Burley etc we’ve seen he does not understand figures, percentages, probabilities or anything beyond his PPE degree
No. They’re still imposing lockdowns
What use is test, track, trace, isolate, lockdown? It doesn’t stop the virus. It lengthens the time these impositions impose on peoples health, liberty and personal, country and world economy
Read and weep
Very true, every Autumn/Winter since 2010 (what happened in 2010?) BBC, C4 etc have been attacking Gov’t about NHS over-run.
How many ICU beds and staff would the >£12 Billion pointless Track & Trace app & staff have paid for?
Yes, asymptomatic or infected in “Envy of World” NHS
Ignorant, inept, bullying Hancock needs sacked. Boris using him as a [future] scapegoat does not preclude sacking to halt damage to UK health & wellbeing the “Health & Care” secretary is causing.
Fellow sycophant Gove sacked too along with “health” ministers ignorant Nadine Doris & useless, shallow Helen Whatley
@Pcar, thanks for pulling that together. I was aware of some of the details and it’s all a bit bleak.
