Senedd roundup: Excess deaths in Wales drop below five-year average. https://nation.cymru/news/senedd-roundup-excess-deaths-in-wales-drop-below-five-year-average/
The #Covid19Cymru stats for today show a death figure back in line with the average of recent days - 5 (total now 1483), though after 3 days of highly suspect figures I half expected more. Watch tomorrow; the weekend rebound often comes on Wednesday.
So it's the DuckDuckGo team that's helping Apple block Google Analytics from cross-site tracking. Nice work! 👏

To say that the #Covid19Cymru death figures over the last few days feel suspicious to me is an understatement. I hope I am wrong, but just one death again today for the third day running, when the average before Saturday was running at around 6, is statistically highly improbable.

Wales, colonised and coloniser: a reflection. https://nation.cymru/opinion/wales-colonised-and-coloniser-a-reflection/
If the #Covid19Cymru figures are correct today, it's truly remarkable. I confess I am doubting them though. Statistically this is improbable. We know that yesterday there were problems with the testing figures, but no problems have been reported for death figures, and no problems reported today for either; in fact, the implication is that it's back to normal.
1 death today, after 1 yesterday. Total now 1477.
Another caveat: Sunday's figures are often low.
My model's prediction for tomorrow: 7.0
