  1. “Covid-19 killed nearly 600 people in Britain yesterday (Tuesday.)”

    I assume you are referring to the UK daily total of 598 for the 17th of November. See the table “Deaths within 28 days of positive test by date reported”, link below. Note “date reported” not “date of death” of which the number for that day is currently 98 but will, without doubt, rise as time goes on.

    From https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/details/deaths
    Daily and cumulative deaths within 28 days of positive test
    Total number of deaths of people who had had a positive test result for COVID-19 and died within 28 days of the first positive test reported on or up to the date of death or reporting date (depending on availability).
    People who died more than 28 days after their first positive test are not included, whether or not COVID-19 was the cause of death.
    Death data can be presented by when death occurred (date of death) or when the death was reported (date reported) and the availability of each of these time series varies by area:
    Deaths by date of death – each death is assigned to the date that the person died irrespective of how long it took for the death to be reported. Previously reported data are therefore continually updated
    Deaths by date reported – each death is assigned to the date when it was first included in the published totals. The specific 24 hour periods reported against each date vary by nation and are defined below
    Deaths are allocated to the deceased’s usual area of residence.

  2. “The main impact of this would be to prohibit gatherings of more than six people indoors. The “Rule of 6” would be permitted outdoors.” Do these 2 lines contradict each other? Do you instead mean that there will be no mixing indoors unless in your bubble, while the rule of 6 will be permitted outdoors?
