Re: Coronavirus

Today's numbers:

Cases 2141
Hospitalizations 77
Deaths 13
Tests 23812

The percentage of positive tests is 9%

Weekly total deaths will be reported today, will see if the number is still going down.

Hopefully, we shall soon see some positive results of the vaccinations that likely will show up first in reduced hospitailisations then later in ICUs?
Last couple of days a small reduction in usage of Swiss ICUs according to this site.
Attachment 141715
This is underreporting for the last few days. You should only look at solid lines that end a week earlier and rise, those are reliable numbers

You do know that the numbers are reported at midday and include all new cases for the last 24 hours?

This is nothing special and has been happening since the start.

Seeing as it's your first post I hope you're not just trolling.

Up to 11.04.2021, 8.48% of the Swiss population has been fully vaccinated. Don't know why the data has not been updated to last Sunday 18th. Fax machines?

In age interval terms, 56% of 80% has taken the vaccine. I guess this is near the saturation point since the surveys a few months indicated only 50-55% of the population wants the vaccine.

The 70-79 years old interval is also close to be finished vaccinating at 31% last week. I guess the major effort is now on the 60-69 years old interval in the following weeks. If the vaccinations for the 60+ years old people is completed at 50-60% in the following weeks, we should see a drop in the hospitalizations really soon because most of the hospitalizations are above 60 YO.
Unfortunately, the rest 40-45% of 60+ and 70+ not willing to vaccinate will screw everyone over. As long as the virus is freely circulating in the unvaccinated bulk of the population they will keep getting hospitalized and keep dying, despite all our efforts, keeping the numbers relatively high.

To be blunt, totally deserved and we should not feel sorry for them. And definitely not impose another lockdown or prolong the current one because of them.

The number of deaths which was reported today is 13. The dates when these deaths occurred is a different matter. It was nice of you to contribute and post this information.

So should we only report on numbers from 2 weeks ago so we're sure we have the numbers right?
Go back to your source, look at the new reported deaths (orange blocks) some deaths are not noted as covid deaths for days/weeks afterwards.

If you don't like the way we talk about numbers, only use the official sources. As far as I'm concerned the daily reports give a general indication of trends, but true information takes time to be fully visible.

As for trolling, I'm very suspicious of anyone who's first post on an online forum is asking an easily answerable question as if it's some new revelation of information. If you don't know what it is, google it.

Thats called reporting lag. The actual reported deaths today are 13, but not all of them died today. One was in fact from a week ago.

Meaning, the numbers you posted will keep increasing in the next days, as those deaths are not fully reported yet.

Re: Coronavirus

My GP claims she sent me my ärztliches attest by post over one week ago ... is it common for it to take that long from Basel - Bern??

I have a vaccine appointment tomorrow and I am really sweating. Do you think they will accept an emailed copy?

You are correct to be suspicious. Of accepting smoke screen.
But quoting “difference to previous day 13” as daily total is wrong.
I linked to same “official” source.

You can say “ As far as I'm concerned the daily reports give a general indication of trends, but true information takes time to be fully visible. ” but this makes no sense.

I quote same link as previous person.

I am only wanting to post the daily deaths as per my link. If you challenge the numbers then please state why and correct me.

Yes. I used to panic when I didn't have a specific document and could provide only an emailed copy but it was OK in the end. For instance a doctor's prescription at the pharmacist's. Don't sweat it.

If the elder population has a higher acceptance of the vaccine that the average, death rates may even decrease significantly.

If the vaccination continues at the current snail pace, it would take by December 2020 to vaccinate more or less all the willing people. So, the worst scenario is that the achievable best is done by December. If vaccines are delivered faster, we finish sooner.

Not bad. Meanwhile, enjoy the reopenings of this week.

Those takeup percentages are dreadful. Sure, loads of us low priority people will be getting the vaccine within the next month to 6 weeks as a result and that's great but to get past the pandemic stage it's going to be necessary to get a higher %, at least in the risk groups.

The UK is at 95% for the over 70s...
