In the week ending 4 Nov, they now report that there were +540 reported cases, +177 hospital admissions, +17 ICU admissions, and +43 thirty-day all-cause deaths*.
For comparison, in the previous update, they reported that in the week ending on 4 Nov there were: +531 reported cases, +144 hospital admissions, +16 ICU admissions, and +36 thirty-day all-cause deaths*.
*All-cause deaths in people who had a positive COVID-19 test in the prior 30 days, that is.
There were 244 people in hospital and 8 in critical care with COVID-19 on 16 November.
From Jeff’s wastewater spreadsheet, it looks like last week’s jump was just noise.
