UPDATE: THE SPIKE WAS HEALTH ADDING IN THOUSANDS OF MISSED RECORDS
After finishing up the Weekly Stats for 14 – 20 November, I noticed that the Hospital Admissions were massive.
This could be an error on Te Whatu Ora’s part, but let’s also check the ICU admissions (because I wasn’t tracking those at all)
Yeah. That seems like a bit of a jump.
Let’s track those ICU changes over the year of 2023, and see if there have been any equally-high weeks.
Nope! Week two of the 5th wave is a BIG ONE!
Or, once again, Te Whatu Ora’s stats are really bad at accuracy.
