Change of frequency to national seasonal respiratory report from weekly to monthly

Publication Date: 15 April 2020

As the demand increases for statistics and data to measure the impact of the COVID19 pandemic, HPS has had to change its data gathering and release practices, focussing efforts on priority analysis and statistics. Our statement explains this further and, in line with guidance from the Office for Statistics Regulation, the decision has been made to change the frequency of this publication from weekly to 4-weekly, starting 23 April 2020 until 1 October 2020 where weekly reporting will return. We will keep users updated of further changes via HPS website.
