IOM Covid removing restrictions

Anyone paying attention would have heard Dr Ewart explaining just how useful genomics testing is while at the same time demonstrating the problem with sending the samples away and having to wait such a long time for the results.

I was only half listening so didn't quite catch what she said. Have they actually done the work to link the unexplained cases?

OK. For what it's worth I'm going to try and explain why genomics is important in a ssRNA virus epidemic. No doubt it will end up being recited badly at a briefing, but, well, whatever. You read it he

Apparently so.

There must be loads of empty industrial estate units on the Island. This location just seems so stupid, I really don't understand why they make these decisions. Plans, 3D mockups, timber framed walls and plasterboard, probably electrics. Insane.

When it comes out they will want to replace the entire floor.

They have established links for 3 of unexplained outbreaks and waiting results for other 2. She seemed happy with results for first 3

Shame that these cases are obviously from weeks ago. If only we knew someone who had a quick and local turnaround, instead of relying on email ‘chase ups’...

They've done some and she said that of the five unexplained cases[1] since New Year they had been able link three to existing clusters and  were still waiting on Liverpool to finish the genomics before they could decide on the other two:

(From about 10:50 for Ewart's slot)

Of course this uses the special Manx definition of community cases ("Things that don't upset Howie").  There's no way of knowing what transmission has happened in the community from identified cases before they isolated or from other leaks in the system.  Hopefully lockdown will have suppressed these, but it's an expensive way of doing things because you refuse to use smarter, faster solutions.

 

[1]  I make it six but it's possible they were able to link the case on the 13th to a cluster by other means, which would explain why they're saying nine rather than eight days since the last unexplained case.

Each booth has a false ceiling which makes things a bit dark in there. So, yes, there are electrics for the lights in each booth.

Skirting boards too. It's a  nice touch that people will appreciate.

I actually went back to the photo to check and they're there. 

Satire is dead isn't it?

I hope they have done some nice paint effects on the skirting, rude not to.

P.S I don't think you could have sat down and designed a worse for ventilation/ air changes layout if you tried. Any Covid in the air down there will hang around for ages.................................
