How are the daily Covid recovery statistics counted?
Is provision made in this for people who don't get a negative result on LFT until (or including) Day 10?
Is provision made not to count as recovered those whose lateral flows still showing positive on an early release day (which requires 2 negative LFTs occur within 24 hours)?
It is a count of the case outcome status per day.
Yes, the case status will remain as "Unknown". Positive LFT results for a case will not count as a recovered case.
In cases when hospital admission is required or if the case remains symptomatic for an extended period of time, that case is marked as "Not recovered".
Yes, the case status will remain as "Unknown" during the early isolation release range in the event of a positive LFT, thus extending the duration of the case with an unknown outcome status.
