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

Rachel has tried every which way to re-offer her services. This last tweet wasn't the first time she's reached out. Government has made it very clear they do not want her to be involved. I want h

I think you'll find most so called anti-government rhetoric is focused on government-stupidity and government-selfishness. In recent times - under Brown, Bell and now Quayle - all too many govern

My take is that if we knew all along that these cases were linked and not "unexplained",we could potentially have had a shorter circuit break?

That is essentially it. If you can identify the transmissions and they're matching up with contact tracing, you know you probably have a handle on things and risk is low.

This has been explained to death over the past 50 pages, but come tomorrow he/she will be asking the same thing again and decrying the fact we’re doing that testing. Yet again.

I may have imagined it, but wasn't the plan to have 2 weeks after the last unexplained case? If they suddenly now due to the use of genomics change them all to explained, have we been in a lockdown for no reason?

We’re still awaiting results of two ‘unexplained source’ cases, presumably from weeks ago now.

I did see on Twitter that Dr Glover was asking about where the info from the Liverpool lab was, so hoped that she might be able to get the info, prove that all the cases were linked and not unexplained and then hold a press conference showing that if the IOM Govt had used her to do the work, they'd have saved the vast amounts of money this lockdown had cost...

There is a "permanence" to these installations...?

And why would you effectively disable the check-in areas of your only airport for the duration?

To be fair, I can understand why they would use the airport. 

 

Toilets, parking, first aid room, cafe, air con, heating, etc  all already on site.

 

Not to mention, almost no passengers 

 

But you just know this 'conversion' wasn't done on the cheap (which it should be due to being temporary)

I don't understand why they didn't put it upstairs along the windows in the (over-priced and under-used) cafe. It's out of the way without being difficult to access as there's a lift. There's even plenty of tables, all they needed were moveable office screens. 

If they're worried about covid safety regarding the lift, a little table outside, or even inside, the lift with a bottle of hand sanitiser and wipes should suffice. It's good enough for shoprite.

As I said the other day, this is the consequence of a government not being able to see past the nose on the end of its face.

The reason this is not 'going away' is that people are still extremely annoyed that the government have gone against their own policy to the detriment of the Island.

How?

You still have to assume they have potentially been in in contact who might yet develop symptoms before they went into isolation.

Incubation period for others when a positive case has been out and about is the same wherever the positive case picked it up from

@Banker

It is me in the interview.

I'm not sure if it came across, but the CM does not understand the damage he has caused.

This isn't a matter of bashing the Gov or propping up @rachomics, it has genuinely caused great concern and ripples not only in BioMed but in other professional sectors.
