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

me too,   it looks like the buck got well and truly thrown back at ashie and howie with bells on,  which is of course where it quite rightly  belongs.

Whilst I do sympathise with the staff. Why are we blaming the Chief Minister and the Health minister. Seems to me that the management of the SPCo may have signed up to an exemption that their staff cannot realistically meet. The Chief Minister does not sign these things off. The procedure is

1) The company apply for an exemption from the normal isolation procedure. This exemption contains a risk assessment and details the steps that the company will take to prevent the spread of the virus into the Island

2) This is submitted to the cabinet office who assess the measure (along the the Dir PH)

3) The exemption is approved if tyey are happy with it and a certificate is issued

Maybe the SPCo didn't bother telling the staff what was expected of them as Government seem very cocky that the fault isn't with them

We have been promised full details so will be interesting to see.

I wonder if this time next week they will be saying 20,000 cases, but all linked to the Index case. All already at home isolating and not in the community!

It's not a forest fire, it's just a fire caused by an accident with a barbecue. It's not a forest fire because we know it's all part of that original fire.

Whilst they may be correct, the more cases there are, the more likely a link will be missed to allow the community transmission to really start.

Lockdown by the back door!

Cases will start dropping off next week, these will probably be day 6/7 tests on those close contacts already in isolation. Everyone needs to calm down, the Facebook mob are already on the call for lockdown and starting conspiracy theories!!

I've not heard anything yet about anyone being ill from those testing positive, bizarre when you see how badly people are affected across the water. I wonder if back in late 2019, when there was a massive amount of school kids and adults alike who had a nasty flu type virus over here, it was covid? I do remember lots of chat with colleagues who said they were knocked for 6 and I remember some talk about a school closing late 2019 although not sure how  true this was. Maybe us Manxies have some type of immunity from then?

I think most of the cases now are younger, a number with teenage children etc, the hospital cases tend to be very elderly or those with serious health issues normally.

Sounds like infected people passing it on to others in the same household (hopefully)

Which just shows how bonkers it was when other household members of returning travellers were free to go about their business.
