What's new

We regularly update the dashboard with new data and features. Here we'll show a timeline of changes that have happened outside of the weekly data refresh.

    • The autumn 2023 vaccination campaign for COVID-19 and influenza ended on 31 January 2024. From 15 February, we will no longer be updating COVID-19 vaccination datasets or charts. Read more about the vaccination campaign from NHS England.

    • Entry category: Change to metric
      Entry title: Change to COVID-19 deaths metrics

      On 4 January 2024, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) stopped publishing data on deaths with COVID-19 on the death certificate by date of death occurrence. This data was previously used to create the deaths charts and headline numbers on the UKHSA data dashboard.

      As the data is no longer being updated, we have changed the dashboard to show deaths with COVID-19 on the death certificate by date of registration. This data is also published by ONS, and is aggregated by week instead of presented by day.

      Data for daily deaths with COVID-19 on the death certificate by date of death occurrence up to 29 December 2023 is still available to download from the dashboard, and all data on deaths with COVID-19 on the death certificate can also be found on the ONS website.

    • We have added area selectors to the dashboard to make it easier for users to see data about their local area. Users can now filter available data based on different geographical regions:

      • UKHSA regions for cases and testing
      • ONS (Office for National Statistics) regions for deaths
      • NHS regions for healthcare statistics
