That was in September. We are now talking about March. Things have changed a bit since then.

It has not been proved that the schools were the cause of the infection rise, most likely cause was adults not complying with covid rules that were in place, it is always the adults 18+ not abiding by rules who cause the spikes.

The phrase AT THE EARLIEST was used a lot but today on the radio apparently there was an overnight frenzy of people booking holidays for immediately after the quoted date.

Hairdressers were reportedly being besieged with people trying to book hair appointments

The only group of people who were sounding a cautious note were the pub landlords being interviewed

I am not expecting miracles or trade to go back to normal we shall have to see what happens and how near to normal life becomes


I think it must be just you. At the time you wrote this, just after dictator for life Boris Johnson proclaimed that he would be guided by data not dates, but still went on to set certain dates in stone, which was rather strange and counter intuitive, no one would have expected infection rates, hospitalisation rates, and death rates to be falling at the rate they are now reducing at. Much less the scientists. We are now three weeks ahead of where we expected to be on the 22nd February. If we are guided by data, we should be moving the dates for relaxation of the lockdown forward, but will we? Of course we won’t, because we are guided by dates, not data, when it suits. Meanwhile, the economy goes tits up.

The dates are not set in stone, they are the earliest that restrictions in those groups can open.

Exactly dates, not data. We were told data not dates.

The actual dates will depend on the DATA!

That was in September. We are now talking about March. Things have changed a bit since then.



8 staff test positive at School

Eight staff members at a primary school are self-isolating after testing positive for Covid-19.

Gretton Primary School, which is part of the Brooke Weston Trust, has been forced to delay the return of some year groups after eight members of staff tested positive for coronavirus.

The positive cases were confirmed after staff completed a lateral flow test, which they take twice a week.

Admittedly this is in the Corby area which has been one of the worst areas in the UK recently


And in STAMFORD ! https://www.stamfordmercury.co.uk/news/positive-coronavirus-case-at-school-9159356/

A case of coronavirus has been confirmed at Stamford Endowed Schools.

A Year 9 pupil at Stamford School received a positive result after completing a lateral flow test.

Are you saying that they all caught this in a school that only opened on Monday?

One of the local sixth form schools undertook 2600 tests over the last few days.

Only one was referred to have a full PCR test.

Ah, so it has nothing to do with the schools reopening. Just a coincidence.

There has got to be a rise in the number of cases as we are now testing one and a half million a day.

The fact that the increase is in single figures is quite remarkable.
