Data showing rising cases before second lockdown quietly revised down

Data released on October 30 suggested the incidence of coronavirus in England had more than doubled from 4.3 per 10,000 on October 2, to 9.52 by October 17. However, the latest bulletin, released on December 4, shows the incidence rate for October 17 is now just 4.89 — Telegraph
