The head of the ZOE Covid app in Great Britain, Tim Spector, took aim at the UK government’s Covid dashboard figures today, saying they are “totally misleading and should be abandoned”.
Covid rates are four times higher than the official government numbers according to the ZOE app and the Office of National Statistics, both of whom use entirely different Covid tracking methods.
Zoe incidence data shows the UK new case rates overall falling again by 11% to 181,000- currently 1 in 25 affected – but NI and Scotland increasing. Real rates (ZOE and ONS) are 4 times greater than the UK Gov dashboard which are now totally misleading and should be abandoned pic.twitter.com/rmWCNMPVF3
