UK lockdown – Day 53

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.
