Important Notice:

On 15th February 2022, Symptomatic COVID prevalence data published on the ZOE COVID Symptom Study website changed: The published data start data shifted from 12th June 2020 to 11th November 2021.

This change has affected a number of live data visualisations on our datahub. We are currently working on a simple solution to allow visualisation of pre-November 2021 data within live graphs and analysis.

Until we have a solution, some data visualisations will be based on data up to 13th February 2022, and other graphs and analyses will only show data from 11th November 2021 onwards.

Hospitals & Mortality

UK Hospitals Now:

  • COVID New hospital admissions on 15th May 2022 were 627. The average admissions over the seven days up to 15th May 2022 was 725, which equates to 17.1% of the January 2021 peak.

  • COVID Hospital occupancy on 18th May 2022 was 6879. The average occupancy over the seven days up to 18th May 2022 was 7718, which equates to 20.1% of the January 2021 peak.

UK Mortality Now:

  • The average number of daily deaths within 28 days of test (by the date reported) over the seven days up to 19th May 2022 was 113, which equates to 9.1% of the January 2021 peak.

  • The average number of daily deaths within 28 days of test (by date of death) over the seven days up to 14th May 2022 was 94, which equates to 7.3% of the January 2021 peak.

  • The average number of daily deaths mentioning COVID on death certificate (by date of death) over the seven days up to 2nd May 2022 was 85, which equates to 6.2% of the January 2021 peak.

Key Datasets Aligned

Prevalence data, incidence data, hospital admission data and deaths (28 day) by date of death data, have been time-shifted and scaled to align with a peak value of 100% at the January 2021 peak. Clicking legend items below will toggle data on/off. Mouse rollover a dataset to show all percentage for a given date. As with the majority of data on this datahub, these graphs update live as new data is published.

The dataset alignments shown above are aligned to the dates from the COVID-19 Infection Survey, which is published weekly by the ONS. Comparing the dates shown here for each dataset, with its respective un-shifted published date, gives us an approximate idea of the real world lag between different datasets. These lags are shown in the legend; e.g., the latest data published for the COVID Symptom Study is nine days behind (t-9) the latest data published in the ONS Infection Data (t). It is important to note that this does not necessarily mean these datasets represent real-world events that happen nine days apart, but rather the same trend appearing in these two datasets, arises nine days apart.
