The annual national GP patient survey - representing patients' views of their GP practices - has just been published for 2020. This is based on data taken near the start of the year.

Corona Virus Disease - Covid-19

Update: 27th October 2020: NHS test and trace started operation at 9am on 28th May 2020. The geometric average of weekly growth factors in number of cases confirmed by testing over the week to 27th October is 1.265 equivalent to a doubling time of 21 days. According to the King's College Covid Symptom Study infection in Reading is rising with an estimated 550 symptomatic cases. on 28th October. On 2nd July Public Health England changed the basis of reporting - by eliminating double counting of persons counted in both pillars 1 and 2. It also added in the pillar 2 figures into the local totals for the first time - raising Reading's total, for example, from 596 to 767 and made public for the first time an out-of-control situation in Leicester. In Italy the factor improved to 0.75 when the number of new daily cases fell below 1000, perhaps due to the greater efficacy of contact tracing for the smaller number of cases, leading to a halving time of 17 days.
