IOM Covid removing restrictions

It makes no sense for them not to be isolated if they are in contact with people who have been to the UK.

It might not be much fun but it certainly is not impractical, unfair or impossible.

It would be unreasonable to ask them to do it whilst there's an opportunity to have the vaccine. But they don't 'qualify' for the vaccine even though the service they participate in is deemed to be in the national interest and would in any other circumstances be classed as key workers (at least on a par with suited 'medical' staff). Something not right somewhere.

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

The issue is they seem to only be acting on medical advice and not on disaster planning advice. The medical advice identifies those groups who most need the vaccine for their health but you also need someone looking at where the biggest risks are for infection to get into the Island. That is our port workers and random jetskiers.

Ashie got to put out the 'no community cases' line again immediately, remember its a 'CLUSTER' add any other words to that you feel necessary.

You are dead right its a cluster, in the same way the prom is a cluster.

The 4pm daily bulletin says they have a good handle on the transmission chain 'Ongoing investigations suggest a good understanding of the transmission chain and contact tracing will continue.'. As yet there are (by their definition) no community cases so it may well be that a lockdown isn't on the cards just yet.

but a panicked hastily arranged presser for today would suggest something else is afoot, or as i suspect Howie will waffle on about what Boris is going to say on Monday with a passing reference to our cases handed off to Ashie or Henrietta.

Remember can't call them community transmission only 'clusters'.

We'd have a presser either way, remember we got quite upset by radio silence last time.

Panicked?

You only have to look at the reaction on here (Facebook etc will be full of Karens in full meltdown) to know that a press conference will be needed.

If they didn't there would just be further irrational meltdowns.

Let's hope so. However, the IOMSPCo issue needs dealing with pronto.
