Makes a mockery of Johson’s Lockdown policy doesn’t it!

Do you have any evidence of it’s authenticity? This could’ve been posted by anybody going by the in your post. No offence, just checking.

Remember the last time they did this they left school figures out so that supermarkets could win and pubs and hospitality could come in second so they could shut them for a bit

they are at a bit of a crossroads on which of those places they can now shut looking at the list. Hospitals look dangerous. Lock the doors

It seems it’s based on people asked to self isolate based on track and trace app telling them where they have visited in the preceding days. Which given neither kids nor teachers tend to use the app makes you wonder how the schools figure is that high

Yes, it’s data which always useful but it has to be taken in context. Firstly, it was taken during lockdown so data on social venues is largely irrelevant, it should be 0. I can see this list popping up again on twitter when (if) we’re out of lockdown as “proof” that Covid transmission in eg pubs is very low.

As long as you stick to 70% proof drinks whilst in those venues I reckon we’re safe

Really sorry to hear that pal, my thoughts are with you. I’ve lost a couple of (extended) family members too but your Dad! That’s cruel.
My wife lost her Mother to Covid 6 moths ago.

It's a bitter pill to swallow. Obviously it would have been hard at any time by any means but somehow this seems all the harder. This virus is something that for some largely only exists on the news till it touches you directly as it has me.

He wasn't young but he was physically healthy for his age. Probably had years ahead of him if not for this. Somebody eats a bat in China and months later my dad dies in Scotland because of it.

I'm in the States and wont even be able to attend his funeral. If I went home I would immediately be in quarantine for two weeks. The whole thing is hard to take.

How kind of Matt to extend flu vaccinations to the over 50s well into the winter flu season. What foresight. The fact that Boots suspended bookings more than 6 weeks ago before this increased demand tells you all you need to know again about the chasm between trumpeted govt policy and its ability to implement it. They should ban the advertising of govt promises from Facebook and Google on the basis of malicious misleading of the general public.

So the mrs has just been told from work that the government directive, with her being a vaccination nurse, is that she should be available 7 days a week through December/January (including Christmas day, boxing day, NYE and NYD) to work 12 hour shifts delivering the vaccine.

Good job the nurses got a lovely pay rise and not just a clap every thursday

At least the government are leading by example, working all the hours themselves on low wages. That's why things are running so smoothly. ;)
