I had heard on the grapevine that someone came back through PTS in last few days has tested positive. No wonder they said 'no stats till Tuesday', if it transpires to be fact. I assume the contact tracing team are doing their bit, which again - if it does prove to be fact - that it would lead to an increase in tests.

If factual, perhaps illustrates how prevalent it still is in the UK !!

No new cases today so I suspect this rumour came from the breakdown issued last week showing where the 336 cases came from including coincidentally one from patient transfer.

N’ah, they are lying to us - that bloke in the pub is always right.

So who is still on the regular testing regime now that there have been no new cases for the last 48 days?

I'd be more interested to know how many positive & negative antibody tests there have been so far.

Interesting news on BBC News online this afternoon. Data is emerging that suggests that only 22% of those testing positive in the UK testing regime show any symptoms. Which could suggest an awful lot of asymptomatic carriers.

I know a couple of GPs getting done every week, but they don't go to the testing station. Other medical staff done regularly too.

Well, I mean, I consider my source pretty reliable. But god knows. Hence I was a bit unassuming in my original post.

The Mail article was clearly taken in their usual manner, from the article that appeared some hours before on IOM Newspapers - without acknowledgement and no doubt payment.  Typically the Mail managed to get rid of all the more interesting details, though it's possible that "Lhergy Cripperty" broke their spellchecker.  I was particularly amused that "[Richard Malcolm Powell] provided a fake name ’Richard Howell’ as well as a false date of birth, address and phone number".  Clearly a master of disguise - no wonder it took six days to catch him (Actually it doesn't reflect well on the authorities - think how many people he might have infected in that time).

The Mail also managed to reduce the sentence "Powell was previously found guilty in his absence for the theft of a fire extinguisher, a fire bucket and confectionery from the Wessex garage in Douglas, as well as driving without insurance or a licence in October 2014" to the more boring "the theft of a fire extinguisher and a motoring offence".  This is why we need local papers and don't need the Daily Mail.

I see his conviction for the arriving and not properly declaring  has been overturned. The requirement to fill in the Covid arrival form only applied to arrivals from designated infected areas. No areas were designated until two days after he arrived!
