Scotland’s covid whack-a-mole

Tayside’s mini second wave was squashed with testing and tracing:

Grampian’s was squashed with a local lockdown:

Glasgow’s is ongoing, and is being tackled with restrictions on gatherings in homes (as well as testing and tracing, of course). Before I added the last data point, it looked pretty bad. I’m not sure if transmission is genuinely tailing off now or the data is affected by recent delays in processing tests. We’ll have to see.

My general impression has been that things are getting out of control, but looking at these data today, it doesn’t look that way. There are success stories here that no-one seems to be reporting. And most other parts of Scotland are doing OK.
