To finish the day, here’s a consolidated UK-wide picture of restrictions, cases & growth (mainly decline) in prevalence, using new cases data from this afternoon.
Lancastrians can feel especially peeved, closely followed by the good people of Stratford, Ashford & Tunbridge Wells
I’m back in Wellington! And just when I thought I couldn’t love New Zealand any more, this is the question on my 2 week managed self-isolation form.

NEW: Tue 24 Nov update of Covid-19 trajectories
Main chart, including positivity rate + both hospital metrics + 5 new countries

Timely #ContactTracing does matter fighting #COVID19. In a new paper (➡️ https://bit.ly/394Ebuo) we study a bizarre #Excel error in England that caused 16k cases to NOT be contact traced. We econometrically can link this blunder to ~ 120k new cases & 1.5k deaths...🧵⬇️1/N

Managed isolation, quarantine costing taxpayers $2.4m a day
So each NZer pays 50c a day for this system that keeps us safe.
