  • Northern Ireland and UK headline data on cases, deaths and testing no longer updated โ€“ UK Government

From 20 May 2022, the Department of Health Northern Ireland stopped reporting data on cases, testing and deaths.

This means that UK headline figures for these topics will not be updated.


  • Deaths due to COVID-19 increased between March and April 2022 โ€“ ONS

The proportion of deaths due to coronavirus COVID-19, out of all deaths that involved COVID-19, increased between March and April 2022 in England and Wales.

In England the proportion of deaths due to COVID-19 (out of deaths that involved COVID-19) increased from 63.0% in March 2022 to 64.2% in April 2022. During the same period in Wales, the proportion increased from 64.3% to 65.1%.

Since February, the UKHSA has stopped publishing COVID updates at weekends. Now they take place on Mondays and Thursdays only.

Better still, the UK Government announced today that โ€œFrom 20 May 2022, Department of Health Northern Ireland stopped reporting data on cases, testing and deaths. This means UK headline figures for these topics will not be updated.โ€

The virus doesnโ€™t take a break at weekends, nor does it show up twice a week only. It spreads and kills people every day in the UK and around the world.

We, at PMP, have decided to continue to publish the latest COVID data available every day, especially the Zoe COVID Study estimates โ€“ probably more accurate than the UK Governmentโ€™s own data since free testing has ended in England.
