They’re still calling it the Fifth Wave. It’s still drowning the Boosted.

This week’s update is for the week of 6 – 12 February 2024.


  • Case/Hospital/ICU Raw Total charts now include the previously omitted Under 12 Years figures. As the vaccination status of anyone who is under 12 is suppressed, I had never included them in Vaccination Status data.
  • Case/Hospital/ICU per-100,000 charts now have the under 12 population REMOVED entirely. Total population drops by 650k, and all paediatric doses are removed from the 1 and 2 dose cohorts. This results in a reduction of 158k 2-dose, and 113k 1-dose. 0-dose drops by 372k. See the new Pie Chart for detailed cohort numbers.
  • Deaths Charts do not change. Under 12s were always included here.
  • New Boosted deaths were 6.56x the per-capita rate of the Not Fully Vaccinated (0/1 dose) cohort , down quite a bit from 9.67x last week.


Overall Cases since First Recorded Case

For the No Dose group, the first case is from March 2020.

For the Boosted Group, the first case is from December 2021.

New Cases Reported This Week

The Boosted cohort reported positive for Covid at a rate per-100,000 people 5.7x that of the Unvaccinated.


Overall Hospitalisations

As with cases, the 0 dose cohort has taken almost 4 years to make this number. Boosted, around two.
