IOM Covid removing restrictions


Recommended Posts

UK news also reporting today very low numbers in those presenting for the test, 18%!!!

Seems they don't want to stop working if positive?

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

Sir Patrick Vallance says UK B117 variant is more deadly, but its ok Henrietta says we don't need to do anything differently with our initial measures ffs. 

Well.  Those two statements aren't mutually exclusive are they?

He might be right.

She is right.

Whats the issue?

Well, I trust Henrietta 100%.

For the last 7 or so months, the IOM has been one of the safest places in the world to live, much in part to the work undertaken by her and her team. The UK, on the other hand, has been on its arse ever since case #1. 

To think, all those who have been kicking off about a few weeks of lockdown (which is working), try living in the UK over the same period. 

Then we have those also kicking off regarding supposed 'over policing'. Well, the following is an excerpt from a Whatsapp chat with a friend living in Portugal:

"Get this. I was in the supermarket earlier, shopping for groceries. Someone known to have tested positive for covid was spotted by store staff. The store announced that everyone barring the covid positive individual leave the store with immediate effect. If the covid positive person tried to leave the store, the store will be locked and police will be called. 19 people stayed in the store (all covid positive)!"

For me, its about time people started showing some gratitude for the relative safety we have, rather than whining at every single opportunity.

But what would we do differently?

Can't see any conflict with Dr Henny and her path

I think everyone is grateful. For sure.

But there can be no resting on laurels. And it may not seem overly relevant  - but it is - stuff like shredding letters during a pandemic doesn't help to convince people that everything we are being told is hunky dory and straight.

But that's gone and no amount of whinging is going to change it, so how's about people focus on the future, rather than getting caught up in past issues.

Not if the reason is only because it is more deadly[1] if our measures are already high.  You'd want to change what you did though if for example it had a longer incubation period or produced a higher viral load.

 

[1]  I'm not convinced it is, though I haven't checked in detail.  But I've noticed the 'new' strain being used to excuse a lot of failings that could otherwise be laid at the door of UK government policy.
