Day 384 of self-isolation - Ten


Ten more dead on Friday. This is obviously a low "weekend" number, Friday being a bank holiday. But it's a very low number even so. And with it, 3423 new cases, also a very low number, and new case numbers aren't usually affected by the weekend.

This weekend effect has been present all along, but it's very marked in the UK. Obviously the virus isn't taking a couple of days off, it has to be an artifact of reporting.

But if it was, then you'd expect a bump in the first day after the weekend, as people caught up with the paperwork. And that doesn't happen.

So, I don't know.

But ten is the lowest number for a long time, and even though it's a bit of an artifact, it's a good number to see.
