Why is there zero chance?

It'll be off the back of waiting on test results.  Which came through late.  And were acted on as soon as practically possible.

If you look at the 4pm figures yesterday, they were awaiting results for 1. 

There’s a chance that could have been the case that was announced. In the circumstances, you can understand why they’d be wanting to re-confirm that result. 
 

Or, the person called, and it was deemed prudent under the circumstances to test them ASAP rather than during normal hours.

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

Possibly.  This mental thought process that they knew about it ages before and just released it near midnight is bizarre.

Howie will look a bit stupid if he has to announce a lockdown tonight just as Boris is announcing easing of lockdown in UK at same time!! That’ll be the gong gone😂

Which is why he will do everything humanly possible to avoid another full lockdown, even if he has to add some new words to the lexicon.

We are by their chart into the territory of social distancing and masks.

But it’s okay, it’s “not in the community because we know where it came from...”

The document points to a rolling 7 day average as being the trigger, but I get your point.

Well that was a very nice word jumble in which he said absolutely nothing. 

If we are not in a lockdown by Friday I'll be very surprised. Mostly so they can get on top of contract tracing.

They've released when they could.   If people don't read the news then what you've suggested above can actually happen any time.:rolleyes:

Not really, the majority of people working a 9-5 will be in bed by 11:30pm, if this news was released  earlier then more people would have seen it.

If any staff (getting tested today apparently) went on to test positive I think that would be the nightmare scenario, especially with all the takeaways.

A staff member testing positive would probably trigger a significant response, they'd use the line 'risk of widespread community seeding'

What will they be saying though when we have another, inevitable lockdown?

Because this virus is mutating all the time, more especially in areas where it is out of control and travellers are coming from the UK which has the highest rate of infection and deaths in the world. Not all are isolating, not all wear masks, not all socially distance.

Our system is not foolproof.

 

 

February 1st, just before the pile on from the usual suspects to suggest we were both talking out of our arses and NO WAY was another lockdown inevitable.

We cannot control this pandemic by 'luck' and the luck we've had up till now is running out.

We’ve just got to live with it same as everyone else in the world including Channel Islands etc , this talking of eradication policy is ridiculous

I was out late on Saturday/Sunday morning in 1886 etc and was pretty busy in there but owner said they were rammed on Thursday night and he expected a lockdown then. Obviously glad there wasnt but its likely I feel. 

There is a possibility of a lockdown for good reason, and people go out and party while they can. I suppose it just shows the attitude a lot of people have towards the situation, like those that bend the rules and look for loopholes. Like that cunt Cummings.

How could they have released it earlier  if they didn't have the relevant data to hand ?
