UK, 100,000 cases per day possible

Health Secretary Sajid Javid

makes sense to treat people differently

Self-isolation changes in England

Changes to school bubble system

Prime Minister, 19th July is on

(Scotland, 9th August)

19 July, cases at least double

so around 50,000 new cases a day

As we ease and go into the summer we expect case numbers to rise significantly and they could go as high as 100,000

Vaccines and treatments are far better than what we had when this pandemic began

UK was now entering uncharted territory

16th August, close contacts of confirmed cases no longer need to self isolate for 10 days if fully vaccinated or under 18s

Positive tests still must self-isolate

Prof Neil Ferguson, Imperial College

UK potential, 150,000 to 200,000 a day

still cause some pressure to the health system

slight gamble


I’m reasonably optimistic

The ratio which we saw in the past between case numbers and deaths has been reduced by more like eight to 10-fold

Worst-case scenario there may need to be a course correction later


Cases, + 24,284 + 27,334

Hospitalisations, + 358 = 1,905

Cases 10 days ago, 18,271

Proportion of cases hospitalised 10 days later = 1.96%

1st January, 2021, Cases, 61,239

10th January, hospitalisations, 3,933

Proportion of cases hospitalised 10 days later = 6.4%
