DOYLESTOWN, PA — The Central Bucks School District will now begin adding new positive coronavirus cases to its website, Superintendent John Kopicki announced Monday.

The move comes as the district reports seven positive COVID-19 cases since Sept. 16, including six Central Bucks East students and one employee at Lenape Middle School.

“We are confident that this process will promote transparency within the wider school community while ensuring that affected individuals are provided with necessary information related to their personal health and well-being,” Kopicki wrote in a letter to families of Central Bucks students. “We will continue to enforce our mitigation procedures and monitor any new cases as outlined within our health and safety plan.”

  • The United Kingdom mistakenly lost about 16,000 COVID-19 (coronavirus) test results, leading to inaccurate case figures in England.
  • Officials with Public Health England, the agency tasked with tallying the positive cases, says the snafu stems from technical issue.
  • Microsoft Excel limits files to just over one million rows, so any excess records are cut off—in this case, thousands of test results.

    Between September 25 and October 2, the United Kingdom inadvertently omitted nearly 16,000 COVID-19 records in an official database, leading to drastically inaccurate case numbers in England.

    The culprit, according to Public Health England (PHE)—a government body of the U.K.’s Department of Health and Social Care, which collates data from public and private labs—wasn’t human, but rather … Microsoft Excel.

    LONDON — An epic fail of a simple computer program “lost” nearly 16,000 coronavirus cases in England for more than a week, British public health officials said.

    Everyone who tested positive was informed. But the cases were left out of the daily totals between Sept. 25 and Friday and ignored by contact tracers during that time. Given the average number of in-person contacts, that means as many as 50,000 people may have been exposed without being called about it.

    By Monday morning, only half of the 16,000 who tested positive had gotten a contact tracing call. The other half “should be contacted as soon as possible,” said Health Secretary Matt Hancock, who was excoriated in the House of Commons by lawmakers.

    Commuters at London’s Waterloo Station on Sept. 24 after Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a range of new restrictions to combat the rise in coronavirus cases in England.

    The glitch was no mere rounding error in the government’s accounting, but another serious stumble at a crucial moment, when the British government is daily trying to decide where to tighten regional lockdowns to slow a second wave of the virus.

    After the error was spotted and the lost cases accounted for, the government’s report of new daily infections nearly doubled — from 12,872 on Saturday to 22,961 on Sunday — sparking renewed angst among officials in London and England’s north, where most of the new cases were centered.

    Michael Brodie, the interim head of Public Health England, said the issue was identified late Friday in the computer process that communicates positive results from labs to the country’s reporting dashboards. Some data files containing positive results had exceeded the maximum file size, he said, according to the BBC.

    “We fully understand the concern this may cause,” Brodie added, “and further

    Britain reported a surge in daily COVID-19 cases to a record 22,961 on Sunday after authorities admitted a technical issue had meant that over 15,000 test results had not been transferred into computer systems on time, including for contact tracers. The technical problem, which was identified on Friday and has now been resolved, led to 15,841 cases not being uploaded into reporting dashboards used by the NHS contact-tracing system.

    Health Secretary Matt Hancock is due to give a statement in the Commons later today to explain the blunder amid reports the missing results exceeded the maximum file size.

    Political commentator Andrew Neil described the new as a “government shambles”.

    News of the glitch was likely to cast further doubt over the robustness of the national test-and-trace system, which Prime Minister Boris Johnson said would be “world-beating” but which has experienced a series of delays and setbacks.

    The total number of Covid-19 cases recorded in the UK since the start of the pandemic has exceeded 500,000, with official figures for the number of patients in hospital beginning to rise as the number of cases also increase around the country.

    It comes as Boris Johnson warned the nation that the Covid-19 crisis will remain “bumpy until Christmas and possibly beyond” on Sunday.

    Here is your daily roundup of coronavirus news you may have missed overnight.

    An “artificially high” new daily record of almost 23,000 new Covid-19 cases were recorded in the UK on Sunday night due to a computer glitch, said the government.

    Public Health England said its official Covid dashboard failed to count more than 15,000 positive results reported between 25 September and 2 October, and added it to the figures for the weekend, resulting in record rises of 12,872 on Saturday and 22,961 on Sunday.

    Nearly 16,000 Coronavirus Cases Were Missed From The UK's Tally After A Computer Glitch

    The blunder has hampered efforts to contact those who may have been exposed to the virus

    A “technical glitch” in England’s test and trace system has resulted in major delays in handing over the details of almost 16,000 positive cases to contact tracers.

    Public Health England said 15,841 positive tests carried out between 25 September and 2 October had been added to the UK’s daily case totals over the weekend after a computer glitch meant they were not recorded on time.

    The blunder saw the UK’s positive case figures soar after the backlog was finally added to the official tally, with 12,872 cases recorded on Saturday and a further 22,961 on Sunday.

    PHE insisted all those who had been tested during the period had recieved their results as normal, with those testing positive for the virus being asked to self-isolate.
