Lockdown Day 53. The hospital death rates continue to grind downwards. Covid19 patients in hospital need prolonged treatment. The reduction in very sick patients presenting to our hospital takes a long time work through.
Each data point represents the growth or slowing of the hospital death rate. The 7 day moving average is calculated on a daily basis. The daily reading is then divided by the previous day’s reading. If the result is below 1 (death rate is falling) then a black data point is plotted. If the result is 1 or above a red data point is plotted.
The linear regression (black solid line) and confidence interval (grey area) point to an established downward trend.
