Testing centres have not started popping up everywhere. MTU's both drive-in and hybrid have been established for months. Maybe if we stop testing, the virus will go away. I seem to remember another idiot saying something similar.

I'm looking forward to being a Covid Marshall. You get a brown shirt and a Taser. Marvellous.👍

I was utterly appalled by that. You'll know the sorts of c***s that will apply.

The idiot in question was Trump, so fair enough. Suggesting that the increase in cases was due to the increase in testing. Test less, problem solved.

Actually he is not that far off the mark, even if he is to obtuse to realise it. Testing will undoubtedly lead to an increase in infection owing to an increase in population movement. One needs to offset that against having a clearer picture of the data. Personally I wouldn't cross the road to be tested but I understand the importance of needing the information.
The increase in cases may also be down to the increased wearing of face coverings. Shoot me down if you like but even the scientific advisers are split on this one.

Ok, if you say so. So the mass spread of the virus around the world was because people wore face masks.

I agree that if the world was spherical at least some would fall off it.

All the Covid Marshall jobs seem to finish at 1730.
The only people being cautioned will be old biddies.
Guess they are not keen on enforcing social distancing outside Wetherspoons on a Friday night..

A nine to five job eh. Wouldn't mind doing that to supplement the old pension. Even supply my own pickaxe handle.

So... QQ...

Who is going to be 1st in the queue for a vaccine?

I will defo want it...but must admit I'd like to see a few others take it first... It will be interesting to see the criteria that selects the people to be first on the list.

If the vaccination rate is anything like the rest of this debacle then I can see you being offered it in April 2028. (Yes twenty eight!)
Vaccination good.....Waiting months to receive it, not so good. rolleyes.gif

Maybe, just maybe the increase in positive test results has more to do with an increase in testing as opposed to an increase in infection?
Has the hospitalisation rate increased? Certainly the death numbers are not rising or the press would be screaming from the pulpit.
Considering that seasonal influenza is also a "Corona" virus and it has already been established that our testing system is anything but "world beating", (Boris speak), I wonder how muddy the water is.

Still with xmas cancelled it will save telling the carol singers to bugger off.

The testing has been pretty consistent for the last few months so that would suggest a big spike in this area. If they test all the kids (which they plan to do) cases will then rocket!!

As for Xmas. I just feel sorry for the old folk. No one else.

So now we are "enjoying" the privilege of being in Tier 4. So devastating is this virus that Whitty and the Wanders, (the present day pied pipers), are so concerned of people are dropping dead in the streets they have to introduce a new level of control.
Mutation of the virus they scream. Well most viruses do this, it is part of their construction.

Quick straw poll of those who care to read this; how many people do you know who have actually been hospitalised, or worse, over the last month? I am expecting a figure of between 1 and 3 depending on the total number of individuals you actually know
Now take away the over 70's, (includes me), those with underlying problems and I think the figure will be at a level you may start to question the current approach.
I will try to adhere to the present guidelines, (if I could understand them), but I do worry for our future with such individuals in charge.
