They're still unfortunates who died from Covid, but the messaging (or lack of context) behind some of the recent numbers is a bit annoying. Implies 63 people died of Covid yesterday.
It doesn't imply that at all. :|

A lot of people, possibly/probably most will assume it's in the last 24 hours.

I really don't see what the huge issue is. Do you want them to say 3 died today, 4 died yesterday, 5 on Monday etc?
Does it make them more dead?
There could be the fact that the deaths are only officially getting reported to NPHET at this stage.

It would be nice to see accurate patterns, no? You're the one getting yours knickers in a twist tbf - 'does it make them more dead' - serious;y?

Also, when there are unexpectedly low figures NPHET are always more than ready to point it out that's it's an 'IT' glitch, there's a backlog blah blah. But never when it's in the other direction, and that just feeds into the 'cry wolf' accusations.

It's fair enough that these people still died, I said as much. It does muddy the waters a bit when seeing patterns and trends in how things are going.

Misery numbers about how the world is going to shit aren't helpful IMO. Maybe I'm just sick of the bad news cycle and wish things could be presented in a slightly less everything is awful context.

If there was a delay a week ago, there’ll be a delay now, and so forth. Wouldn’t be getting too hung on it, the deaths from the preceding months are not that much of the total.

If we are clipping 40+ deaths a day for 6 weeks we’ll be oner the total deaths from the first wave. Hopefully it’s a few extra from New Years and the average doesn’t go above 30.

I'm sure it would be nice but is it 100% necessary?
Will it make a jot of difference?

The narrative is set. Every healthcare worker is “worked to the bone”. I can give you a dozen examples of healthcare workers who are pretty f**king far from worked to the bone but I’m a prick for daring to say it.
I can double that dozen and then lash multiples more on. The INMO close contacts thing is hilarious. What they are worried about is loads of their members are at home child minding but 'close contacts'. Close contacts my hairy fücking hoop. A quarter of the country is on PUP, a quarter wfh heroes (my Chinese phone corrected that to herpes), a quarter 'close contacts and the rest might be working but we are not sure.

It's the same in the UK.

They announced 1,564 :shock: deaths today, and some of them are from before Christmas etc.

Using a 13 times multiplier that's the equivalent of twice our number for today. So whilst we rightly give NPHET some grief, things could be worse.

I'm not too bothered about that. They either lost control of or are wilfully confusing us with the daily numbers but whatever they are not an accurate reflection of the day to day state of play. Not a particularly big deal though you would think they would stop with it considering it's bollox.

Ah stop. For better or worse the way we notify deaths in this country means we can't simply give figures for how many die each day from covid.
and your nickname is stats ? looking at it now, its a pick and mix as to how the come up with the numbers

"Five of the latest deaths reported occurred in November (so November numbers were understated, or maybe they includes ones from Ocotober) , one in December and 56 happened this month (were they in the days that seemed to have low numbers I guess ?). The date of one person’s death remains under investigation, Nphet said in a statement.
The number of deaths reported on Wednesday is the second highest during the pandemic. The highest number, 77, was reported on April 20th. this makes the this 63 a headline number but turns out its a number that actually means nothing

in other words these daily death numbers mean nothing if anyone is trying to establish a pattern or any correlation ; if they're going to be that much of a lottery then dont do them daily, its pointless clearly - possibly do them weekly and if you're going to be reporting numbers that are from a previous period then restate them accurately ; can you imagine reporting your daily sales numbers or any other kpi like that ? ah sure boss, we found a bunch of sales from October, a pile from last week and a few from Monday.....so all the numbers you report to me on those days were bollix ? ,,,,,ah sure look it, you know yourself like

Again, you know it can take 3 months for a death cert to be filed? So they can never be sure until 3 months later.

Absolutely the number is largely meaningless but it's not like they can be expected to know of deaths that they haven't been notified about and deaths aren't notified until the death cert is filed.

Cases are back on track and are usually close enough to reality. Deaths, as said are meaningless given how we notify.

Politically impossible. As soon as the daily press conference stops it will be taken as a signal that the crisis is over. That can't happen until this wave is well and truly gone and the vaccine rollout is well advanced. Arguably it should never have started, but as it's there it can't be stopped for now.

You can imagine the reaction: what are they hiding?

Can any one tell me why, when money is being spent like a drunken sailor, NPHET/HSE didn't fit out a half a dozen standard containers as mobile vaccination units?

Put in a Genny, run the electrics etc., whiterock the walls, altro the floors, put in a small super freezer, a boosted wifi aerial, some benches and chairs, and away you go. Visit NHs one at a time and vaccinate one and all, then move on to the next.

What you’re looking for is military logistics. This is the HSE you’re talking about. Not in a million years would they move that fast on anything.

FFS I could have a fully worked out design in a day. +/- 10% estimates/tenders in a couple of weeks, and with money not a problem, fully fitted out containers a couple of weeks after that (you just pre - order Gennies and materials once the button to tender is pressed).

It's how the private sector, particularly pharma, works when it needs something done in an awful hurry.

Yeah, 1992 is such a long time ago for peace loving Sinn Fein.

Would be nice to balance that out with the positive news about the vaccine rollout daily. Oh wait..

They are off the shelf units. A dime a dozen. Could have ordered 50 of them from China at 25k a pop including shipping in the summer and had them waiting to go. They made a massive song a dance about ordering PPE from China and now have no plan whatsoever to rollout the one thing that will actually quell the virus. It's beyond a joke and disgusting to watch.

All journalists should demand the vaccine numbers immediately at any presser and then go from there. If they can't provide them then no need to publish anymore of their voodoo stats.
