“The rate of decline in confirmed cases seems to have slowed significantly in the past few days, but this is likely catching up on last week when severe weather impacted test activity and thus the number of reported cases. Test activity has not yet returned to normal but the rate of falls has slowed We expect a recovery later this week, ”suggested Ian Shepherdson of Pantheon Macroeconomics
