Interesting that they are saying 14% of tests are coming back positive. Total tests since the last update has gone up by 760, so 14% = 106 likely to be positive. Not sure how many are officially still waiting test results from those 760 tests but maybe that's what they are basing it on. But if that is the case, DA didn't explain it very well... (as usual)

You might be onto something there, so perhaps Tynpot heard the projected figures rather than actual positive tests received?

OK. For what it's worth I'm going to try and explain why genomics is important in a ssRNA virus epidemic. No doubt it will end up being recited badly at a briefing, but, well, whatever. You read it he

Exactly my point about these briefings. I feel a letter coming on. 

An email might be better, a letter could all too easily accidentally fall into the DHSC correspondence shredder

Only 1 awaiting a result?  I know of one who was tested yesterday afternoon and still no result.  Wonder if they are the one?

a family member was tested earlier today and won't get the result till tonight so it must be them.

Howard was very much on the backfoot today IMO.

That's what happens when stupid people with no talent are given responsibility by cynical people with no backbone.

The daily figures haven't been published yet. The GOV feed says the numbers given at the briefing will be updated later today. It took them until 6pm yesterday.

Okay so the schnapshot of 56 was from 3.25pm, does that mean the 56 were from this morning and the afternoon figures hadn’t been compiled yet? In which case why doesn’t Ashford just say he hasn’t had this afternoon figures back yet?

Ashford said something to the effect that the numbers he gave were confirmed test results. Perhaps the missing 52 test are being frantically rerun in the vain hope they are false positives?

Indeed. I suppose they are doing tests throughout most of the day and the results coming back in batches. The tent was still open for business when I drove past at 3.30pm.

But he must have had them back if he briefed government with a different, larger number before the plebs' briefing. He didn't actually deny the 108 number, he just said the additional tests weren't confirmed.

I don't believe we have actually had Sundays figures,everything published yesterday referred to those numbers being from Saturday.

Is what is to come today going to be 1 day or 2 days cases?

Its an absolute shambles!

There are still batches outstanding from yesterday, they are overwhelmed.  So how was there just 1 test awaiting results?
