    How can they tell now testing has finished? It's peak tree pollen season too, which has all the same symptoms.

    If one in every 14 people have it at any one time, that's about 2 or 3 on every floor of your office every day. That's just the reality of living with covid as I've understood it, rather than anything to do anything about/worry about

    Not worried about it, just saying what was going on at work, it does seem to be running rampant again in general though.

    The same at mine. The fcuking 8am call has been the bug bear of my life the last 2 years. I have a long standing health issue and though I am treated privately in London I am always calling to check results have been sent.

    651 covid-related deaths today, 20,000 in hospital with covid.

    Not hard to imagine why the NHS is on its knees.

    The majority are incidental. They were in for other reasons just also had covid.

    Have you got a source for that? Genuine question, as I’m interested.

    We really to start reporting "admitted because of COVID / Requiring hospital treatment for COVID".
    Whilst I'm sure there is some truth to your position and that of the newstatesman, it's is conjecture. As is any argument the other way.

    Deaths is a useful measure, but still needs analysis of the underpinning context (IE age, resource issues, underlying conditions etc)

    It's nhs england data. 58% of cases in hospital are incidental.

    You just have to look at how icu or deaths are pretty much flat. They might have risen slightly but not anywhere near infection rates.

    Not talking daily testing talking how many infected. Which has just come down from record levels. According to zoe and the ons.

    Tbh i haven't been following that much recently. It just isn't that much of an issue now. The media have been brick throughout, believe them and we are one of the worst cases in europe. Yet excess deaths in the uk are similar to germany and less than france during the pandemic.

    Infections in the uk are incredibly high at the moment.

    Or are they playing with words, there are record numbers in hospital, covid is all but endemic, makes sense there would be record numbers of people in hospital with covid.
    With, not necessarily because of.
    Death figures for the first quarter will be down this year, not had official confirmation of it yet but I will suspect a 15-20% drop.

    Is it not just a simple case now of:

    - Deaths with Covid < 1 in 14 deaths (i.e the prevalence in the general population) = all's good

    - Deaths with Covid > 1 in 14 deaths = it's still a factor

    Just slightly below the 5 year average. Although much lower than last year.

    I’ve been very careful for the last 2 years as I have asthma. Wfh and have done pre Covid. Went to a mates 50th on Saturday, knew it was one big Petri dish and tested positive Tuesday as ironically had an asthma check up at docs scheduled and did a pre-test. Nearly missed the result until daughter started to shouting it was positive. Mild symptoms so far but just started getting a spread pain under ribs and in kidney. Hopefully it passes with no dramas.
