Hancock is speaking now on the “substantial progress” being made against the virus.

Yesterday’s figures show 530 new cases, down 90% since the peak, he says.

The latest number of deaths across the UK is 11, the lowest since 13 March, he adds.

This progress can’t lead to complacency, he says.

A whole lot easier to keep tabs on 3 cases than 530.

I can only get subtitles in Italian so I had to give it a miss.
Click on settings on the youtube page and then subtitles, you can change the language.

Tuesday again. Latest ONS statistics.
https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/bulletins/deathsregisteredweeklyinenglandandwalesprovisional/weekending3july2020

The number of deaths registered in England and Wales in the week ending 3 July 2020 (Week 27) was 9,140, this was 161 deaths more than Week 26.

In Week 27, the number of deaths registered was 0.5% below the five-year average (43 deaths fewer), this is the third consecutive week that deaths have been below the five-year average; the numbers of deaths in care homes and hospitals were also fewer than the five-year average (88 and 634 deaths lower respectively), while the number of deaths in private homes was 755 higher than the five-year average.

Of the deaths registered in Week 27, 532 mentioned “novel coronavirus (COVID-19)”, the lowest number of deaths involving COVID-19 in the last 15 weeks, accounting for 5.8% of all deaths in England and Wales.

In Week 27,  the proportion of deaths occurring in care homes decreased to 20.1% while deaths involving COVID-19 as a percentage of all deaths in care homes decreased to 9.2%.

Except for the East of England and London, the number of deaths involving COVID-19 continued to decrease or remained similar across all English regions, with five of the nine regions having fewer overall deaths than the five-year average in Week 27.

In Wales, the total number of deaths was above the five-year average (29 deaths more) for Week 27 while the number of deaths involving COVID-19 increased to 35 deaths registered (from 30 deaths in Week 26).   
 
Of all deaths involving COVID-19 registered up to Week 27, 63.5% occurred in hospital, with the remainder mainly occurring in care homes (29.7%), private homes (4.6%) and hospices (1.4%).

 The number of deaths registered in the UK in the week ending 3 July 2020 (Week 27) was 10,393, which was fewer than the five-year average (by 74 deaths); of the deaths registered in the UK in Week 27, 560 deaths involved COVID-19.


Number of deaths still below 5 year average but 161 above previous week.
Deaths in care homes and hospitals down but deaths outside care homes and hospitals up by 755.

Just a blip or the start of the effects of loosening of lockdown?

It's interesting. When I had my Civic and was on the Civinfo forum, a recurring theme was the uselessness of Honda UK in dealing with issues that a dealer couldn't or wouldn't put right. That said, when I had my Golf and was on a VW forum, the VW UK outfit was regarded with complete contempt as well even by VW enthusiasts.

If you put people in a perfect place everything they could possibly need they would still moan - it is human nature,  some people think when they buy a car they have bought the whole company just to do their bidding, I know people that when they go out for a meal seem to think they have bought the whole restaurant for the day and moan about everything - I said to my niece once after she had been moaning 'if you were working long shifts on minimum wage would you really care if the coffee was a bit cold '?   I don't bother watching news anymore and hardly read newspapers,  it all seem to be full of people moaning how badly treated they have been by NHS or other organisation or company.  I would have more respect for the moaners if they just came out straight and said 'but if they give me money I will withdraw my complaint'...  As for people with 17 kids moaning about the size of their council house - don't get me started.

Nit picking about cars is a real first world problem, most people in the world will never get a car.

If you want problems and bugs look no further than Microsoft,  but they force people to have frequent updates to solve the problems ( which is why I moved over to Linux Ubuntu and Libre office).

Very interesting and thorough review, though the English subtitles are a bit of a challenge!
Use your imagination... ;D
I noticed that this powertrain has finally the right shaft composed of two parts to avoid or reduce torque steer and vibrations during strong accelerations with steered wheels. Finally.

The rust on the friction surface is standard in wet climate and does not affects functionality. After the first brake pressure the surface becomes clean again.

They can be made to be rust resistant - GM do it in the US as they were getting so many customer complaints.
