IOM Covid removing restrictions

I think I read that at one point Jersey was down to FOUR police officers. If that happened here, we’d be royally screwed. 

Their ambulance service was also badly hit. At one point they were so short staffed they were relying on volunteer help to make up the crews and couldn’t do normal ambulance things like administer drugs at the scene. Basically a taxi service for the ill and injured. Glad they’re getting it well under control again.

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

I always stay with it until Moulton has done his bit just to see if his questions can get any more idiotic (unfortunately  he is usually on last ). Excelled himself today and you could almost feel the contempt from the Chief Minister as he answered his questions, sent him away with a flea in his ear,and his tail between his legs.

When PM asked his first question, (and we all knew HQ and DA would just double-down on their previous explanations) all I could think was "wasted vaccines? WTF how about wasted questions Paul???"

Strangely enough the only workmen I saw today who were working close together, but mostly not wearing masks were some DOI staff on the promenade, perhaps they have all had their vaccinations.

Lots working on new testing centre, most seemed masked up. Saw a couple of painters doing the outside of house, no mask but 3/4 m apart so all good.

Yep, DOI workers had vaccinations a few weeks ago. Before the steam packet. Before emergency services. Before some elderly and vulnerable.

It’s March and it’s freezing. They’ll have Netflix on in front of the fire.

One of the minor irritations about these dreadful media events is that it means that the figures aren't released at the proper time because the Dynamic Duo have to give them out personally.  Indeed sometimes they never put them out on Twitter and Facebook in the normal way and you have to get them from the dashboard and hope a random reporter has picked up the info.

We've finally got the details of today's cases:

As at 6pm 3 March 2021 17 new cases of #COVID19 have been detected in the #IsleofMan.

Eight of the cases are close contacts of people in existing clusters who were already in self-isolation.

One of the cases was travel related and in isolation.

The eight remaining cases are currently unexplained with no immediate link to existing clusters.

All individuals are self-isolating along with members of their household and further tests will be offered. Contact tracing continues.

Which doesn't actually match what we were told before:

There are seventeen new cases of coronavirus as of the latest update, given by the health minister just now.

It means there are 70 active cases, three of which are in hospital.

14 of the cases have now caught the virus from an unknown source.

Looking at the number, I think what this really means is that there are 14 'unknown' cases in total: 8 from today, 3 yesterday, 1 Monday and 2 Saturday.

39 vaccinations today!

Has to be a typo from government press office?

Alas I don't think so. I was glancing at the Vax dashboard earlier today and their target for today was only about 25 as I recall.

Plus as someone mentioned earlier, the vaccination place in Douglas was closed. For whatever reason. If ALL adults are vaccinated by end of May as per the briefing today, I’ll be amazed.

56% above target. Fantastic stats IOM!!

If ever there was a busted flush it’s good old ‘Howie’ and ‘Ashy’. The pre-pubescents running Gef should be producing aprons and T-shirts with targets on them.

Has anyone on Manx Forums been contact traced yet, and could they let us know what they were asked etc.

Effective contact tracing is vital in our fight against yon virus. Perhaps one of the briefings, or even an explanation on the website on how we can help to provide accurate information, such as keeping till receipts and a simple diary. 

I also believe that there should be a demonstration on the correct use of masks. Half-heartedly using them in an ICBA manner is worse than no mask at all.

It's getting serious for everyone now.
