Since February, the UKHSA has stopped publishing COVID updates at weekends. Now they take place on Mondays and Thursdays only. Since 20 May, the UK dashboard has stopped updating Northern Ireland data altogether and updates Wales on Thursdays only.

The virus doesnโ€™t take a break at weekends.
It doesnโ€™t show up twice a week only.
It doesnโ€™t stop at a border either.

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.
