well that didn't take long ;how many days back ?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-sussex-54042494

Two school classes are self-isolating after two days of term because a teaching assistant has coronavirus.

The member of staff at Cardinal Newman school in Hove was contacted by track and trace on Thursday and told on Friday they had tested positive.

Principal Claire Jarman alerted parents on Friday and 45 pupils in two Year 7 classes were affected by the news.

Chairman of governors Geri Silverstone said the school was doing all it could to keep pupils and staff safe.

Four year groups returned to school last week, with the whole cohort due back on Monday.

Are they seriously expecting they'll turn up ! :lol:

I hope so.

Do we not go to hospital as many NHS staff got the bug?

Do we not go to the supermarket if some staff get the bug?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lincolnshire-54058553

Two schools in Lincolnshire have asked pupils and staff to self-isolate after outbreaks of Covid-19.
Thirty children were sent home after a staff member at The Holt Primary School, in Skellingthorpe, near Lincoln, tested positive on Friday.

Meanwhile, an entire year group and four members of staff from The King's School in Grantham have been asked to self-isolate.

and if that isn't close enough

Three cases of coronavirus affecting pupils at the Stamford Endowed Schools have been confirmed.

Pupils returned to the school today (September 7) following new health and safety measures.

Hannah Hamilton, the school's director of development and external relations, said: "All current guidelines are being rigorously adhered to, including isolation for those involved, and we have been in contact with Public Health England.

although the word locally is that it is 4 tested positive

You really are turning into the private Fraser of TDO. “We’re doomed i tell ye! Doomed!” If you test more people, the more positive results that are going to show. Are you enjoying this? Am I having a go at you? You betcha! You seem to enjoy putting the willies up people. :shock:

It does appear that if you catch it in warmer months it is less deadly. It also appears to not affect younger people with healthier lungs much at all.

I have a feeling though that this is going to be the lull before the storm because with so many now infected (more than 1 percent of the population in many parts of the world ) the second wave could be much bigger although we are now better prepared and have some treatments available.

Even the BBC are acting a bit more sensible and balanced.

Scammers on social media who claim to work for the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency are selling "full driving licences" for £600, a BBC News investigation has found.
They claim to have inside access to driving test centres which allows them to book and pass practical driving tests without clients being present.
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency - which has responsibility for driving tests - said that was not possible.
They are money-making scams, it said.

Worrying to think how many might be driving cars on the road with these

obviously not taxis/PH because of the check code system
