Data update: 17th July 2020 - The Secretary of State has today, 17 July, asked PHE to urgently review their estimation of daily death statistics. Currently the daily deaths measure counts all people who have tested positive for coronavirus and since died, with no cut-off between time of testing and date of death. There have been claims that the lack of cut-off may distort the current daily deaths number. We are therefore pausing the publication of the daily figure while this is resolved. (source: Gov.uk)
Data update: As of 2nd July 2020 due to 'methodological improvements' and 'a revision to historical data' the number of positive cases reported is significantly lower than those reported the previous day. Link: twitter.com
The methodology for reporting positive cases changed on 2 July 2020 to remove duplicates within and across pillars 1 and 2, to ensure that a person who tests positive is only counted once. Due to this change, 30,302 previously reported cases were removed from the UK total.
Numbers of lab-confirmed positive cases throughout this website (national, regional and local authority level) now include those identified by testing in all settings (pillars 1 and 2). Due to this change many cases previously not attributed to any area are now included in area totals. This is not a recent surge in cases – the cases now being reported occurred from April onwards.
Data update: As of 1st June 2020 deaths linked to 'pillar 2' testing are included in the reported figures. Link: Changes to the reporting process. The change affects data reported as of 24th May 2020 and has been reflected in the charts you see here.
The net effect here is that 445 additional deaths originally reported here on 1st June 2020 have been absorbed into the preceding 7 days** Data update: As of 29th April 2020 statistics include COVID 19 deaths reported from various settings.
