Asks more questions than it answers ,how many more backlogged? why is there such a backlog? what’s the point in following a curve if the information isn’t up to date?

All a bit of a mess 

One of the main delays is awaiting tests on the person who's passed away. Some patients sadly pass away before they're confirmed to have had Covid-19 which means they have to await the results to come back. Then they have to inform family members and once that all adds up you can be 7+ days from the actual death.

Well, the backlog will likely be because of informing next of kin, and possibly coroner questioning covid as main cause of death, maybe? And certainly here in my area the main North Bristol nhs trust hospital, Southmead hosp, some beancounter at the hosp didnt submit a week's worth of numbers; they were actually ready to be submitted each day, but werent.

Each National newspaper/News organisation should really employ a medical expert to review each journalists tweet before they post it. The amount of inaccurate nonsense I've seen is unbelievable. Although for that tweet in question a 4 year old could have told her it wasn't flattening. 

I been saying for quite a few days, all this talk about we are reaching the peak or there is encouraging signs is very questionable to say the least. 

I highlighted a comment from a BBC analyst who suggested we are seeing positive signs because the rate of deaths has gone down and pointed out if the current rate we saw last week was the same now we would be seeing around 1400 deaths a day yet the big problem was no country in Europe has experienced over a 1000 deaths a day nevermind 1400 a day so its (no doubt unintentionally) misleading analysis on his part and the pattern was the rate would go down, be bloody even more alarming if it didn't. 

There is always going to be a lag in deaths but imo, there is no real positive signs in terms of the number of cases either. It does not help with the complete farcical way of how they are reporting the numbers either. 

Also the number of tests a day is hardly increasing much either despite the promises, we shall find out by the end of the month if we do get over 30,000 tests a day or not.
