The government is keeping the Covid19 figures really low by only publishing 'pillar 1' data which are results for tests done in the NHS. 'Pillar 2' is the data from "testing by commercial partners". So they're privatising the testing so that 90% of cases aren't made public!
But the govt is sitting on a much more complete dataset including pillar 2, which tells a completely different story
More than 90% of new cas…
this is so dodgy, good spot @WhoTargetsMe 🕵️♂️

Also - can we all stop believing people talking about magic AI just because they’re white, rich & wear polo necks?
This has been a joy to work on, from co-defining the brief on 'AI Snake Oil', through to tutoring and supporting design students with all things AI, through to putting together this online show. Great work from the staff and students of @D_I_Studio 👏
Even city describer bot can appreciate the performative gesture, and coming together of people. Good bot, you can keep your job

hmm who deleted this #covid19 UK data dashboard and all the data? Click on the link now and it still mentions the dashboard, but it is no longer there. Is this how we stay alert? In the dark?
We’ve produced a new #Coronavirus (#COVID19) data dashboard, including new cases and cases by upper tier local authority. We are also working on a mobile-optim…

the government/IEA (same thing atm) have released their plan to reboot economy. Even in a pandemic they suggest:
- "getting rid of planning rules" and "occupational rules"
- " targeted tax cuts and deregulation"
- "allow [businesses] to fail" (what?!)

Incredible investigation. From this it seems reasonable to conclude police shot an unarmed Duggan, then tampered with the evidence to protect themselves. How else did 4 seconds out of a crucial witness video disappear? Forensic Architecture, great work, thank you
