Credit where it's due, PHE have now published full pillars 1+2 data for all English local authorities, going back to the start of the outbreak.

Available to download from the main UK government dashboard…

As part of the update process, total UK-wide cases have fallen by around 30,000 and now stand at 283,757.

This was anticipated, as we knew (thanks to @BBCMoreOrLess) that there was a double-counting issue with the testing data, and those duplicates have now gone.

Happily, rather than just subtracting 30k tonight and leaving the old data unchanged, the full time series has been revised, so we now appear to have consistent data on cases by specimen date right back to February (for the UK, England, and English subnational areas).

For the devolved nations, you still need to visit their own sites to get the data, though that may change in the coming days.

Wales has a consistent time series of pillars 1+2. Scotland and NI are only consistent 1+2 for the last few weeks
