comment


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.

Please support our work to help us to continue our COVID reporting: Donate now.

๐Ÿงฉ Long COVID


Researchers still donโ€™t know precisely how many get long Covid, what causes it or how best to treat it.

About 1 in 5 US adults have health problems from COVID long after they first test positive, according to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Researchers say more study is needed on the effectiveness of booster shots against long COVID.

Research carried out in the Mater Hospital in Dublin has found significant evidence of brain-related neurological and psychiatric conditions among Irish patients with long Covid.
