These are from John Roberts, a contributor to the work of the Covid-19 Actuaries Response Group, on the latest hospital admission figures for England.
The latest admissions figure for England shows that after a relatively stable few days there has been another uptick today, with the 7 day average now at 199 from a low of 45. Remember it takes at least 2 weeks for mitigating measures to have an impact on these figures. 1/3 pic.twitter.com/zTdL50F9gb
We expect deaths to lag admissions by around 8 days, and can now clearly see the numbers rising quickly, again approaching 4 x the low seen around 3 weeks ago. There is a lag over the weekend, caught up in today’s total of 28 new deaths reported. 2/3 pic.twitter.com/d34J9uaD1h
The regional analysis shows that London and the NE/Yorkshire are now rising fastest. There are initial signs that maybe the NW is responding to local measures which have been in place there for a longer period. 3/3 pic.twitter.com/UooRw8doG5
