“We now know how many people have tested positive for the disease in a particular area, but not whether any of them have had to be admitted to hospital as a result, nor yet if any of them has died”

Please excuse the pedantry, but people get admitted to hospital as a result of symptoms – a positive test results merely in being told to self isolate. Many cases aren’t detected until tested at hospital, and “the number who died with COVID-19 mentioned as a cause on the death certificate” is nearly 20% greater than “all deaths within 28 days after a positive test”, so tens of thousands of serious cases must have escaped detection by test.
