    I dunno about that, after working in a gov dept I'm shocked how much of it is just run by excel
    I've come to the conclusion it is only some SMEs that aren't exclusively run by excel....

    Actually, I'm not sure that the total number of tests taken is made available so all the excel skills in the world won't allow you to work the percentage of positive tests if you don't know how many tests were taken.

    My theory -

    1. "Pingdemic" bulltulip in the press and real pings (due to increased infections) made lots of young people delete app, so that they don't get pinged.
    2. Since they don't get pinged they'll be less likely taking a test that would have picked up asymptomatics (more likely among the young).
    3. YUGE DROP IN REPORTED INFECTIONS!

    Hospital admissions over next 4-6 weeks should show if this is correct.

    AtW is so rarely right about anything, just let him have the pyrrhic victory.

    Hospitalisations will level off in about 7-10 days. Maybe high 8s. Won't hit 10.

    Certainly not "well above"

    Today's numbers for 26 Jul : 5918 in hospital (+1303) on week, 5 days to go, so probably will hit 6500, with +1500 increase per week we'll hit 10k by mid August, so I'll be off by 2 weeks in this case.
    I'll just quote this here.

    And you said "well above" not "just getting there"
