The Tabby takes the official figures while the one I'm posting is one where individuals are self reporting. I suspect statisticians then get a hold of it and extrapolate the figures produced - although I don't know that as fact.Thanks. Not sure why the info shoul dbe so dramatically different.
I looked into their calculation methodology, couple of key points with what they report:The Tabby takes the official figures while the one I'm posting is one where individuals are self reporting.

Going back through the thread you'll see we've discussed the issues with that.
The ups and downs have been fairly consistent with the official figures, sometimes even a wee bit ahead.
It's just another look at whats happening away from the official figures but backed by organisations with a pretty good rep so I'm content they're a fair reflection of whats happening.
I think they're having a huge effect. Looking around Europe and beyond numbers are rocketing. At least we seem to be keeping a lid on it (ish) for now. 400,000 new cases the other day worldwide.@Jack are we to take from these figures that the latest Covid restrictions are having little to no effect? Or would the acceleration in the number of Covid cases be far higher without these restrictions? Or are we still in the "lag phase" where the positive effects of the restrictions implemented on the 9th of October are still to be fully realised?
