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

Can you catch it from being on the same forum as someone else?

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.

Moulton has went right down in my estimation... absolutely pathetic individual.

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

Really? Seriously? Really seriously? What thinking could come to that prioritisation?

Steam Packet staff testing? Only started when something went wrong. etc.

Yes. As with any accident it's likely avoidable with hindsight. Realistically it was only a matter of time.

But nobody set out to do this deliberately...and we should also remember to look after the mental health of all the people involved in this unfortunate chain of events, howsoever caused.

Well that is a good question.

We simply don't know.

Can you catch it by walking past some in the street? We were at one time told it had to be 15 minutes within a metre of an infected person?

Masks - they're essential and super dooper protection. Or masks - they're bollox.

The Kent variant was at first described by some prancer in the UK Government as being "incredibly transmissible". Well "incredibly transmissible" to me is walking down a street and every single person catches it - and let's face it, that is not "incredible". 

We need Dr Ewart or similar to provide some concrete medical advice, not stories about men sitting in pubs nursing pints and fires spreading under the heath. That stuff is obvious. I can read newspapers and watch the news on telly same as anyone else.

We need better information and strong advice backed up with evidence from data. They should have enough data by now. And if they haven't just say words to the effect of "We're fucked if we know" which I suppose to be fair is what we are getting now.

Well there is actually.

It's deluded to think some people will not miss appointments.  This is real life.  It happens.

Go and have a look at the board in Palatine Group Practice.  Each week is has the number of missed appointments. It happens.

Go and speak to any beauty therapist, chiropractor, hairdresser, optician, restaurant.  It happens.

What makes you think this would be any different?

That's a fair point, but if you miss any appointments with the above people ur probably not going too die.

Of course nobody set out to do this deliberately, but if some people had been doing their jobs properly, this wouldn't have happened. I'm sure the owners of Abbotswood didn't intend for the virus to run through their old folks home either, but they have been subject to police investigation. If, god forbid, somebody dies because of this current outbreak, there will be serious questions that will need to be answered by the SPCo management and IOMG.

Well, if the fire is still smoldering under the 'Spewin Juan' thread, that could flare up at any time?

So, yes, it could be possible?

An investigation that is still dragging out and they're trying to clutch at any possible straw to find a case.

But naturally they dare not make an issue when it's a Gov owned entity.

I asked Mr Hooper this question on Twit earlier and nobody seems to know the answer: If IOMGov believed that IOMSPCo staff were subject to direction notices, why at no point did the COVID Police conduct checks in 12 months to make sure they were at home?

Everyone who attended an event at the Hydro Hotel last month is required to isolate for three weeks.

Gef has tonight seen an email which says that two people who attended ‘The Long Tall Shankies, Manavia and Dusty Plankton’ show on Feb 26 have since tested positive for Covid-19.

An email from the Covid Response Team says: ‘Unfortunately two people at the event have tested positive for Covid-19 and, due to the circumstances, everyone who attended the event and everyone in their household is required to isolate immediately for a period of 21 days. It is possible to reduce the period to 14 days on the return of two negative test results.’

People who attended the event are required to send their phone number to contacttraing@gov.im so the Covid team can contact them to arrange tests.

The email added: ‘If you or anyone in your household is currently showing any symptoms of Covid-19 (temperature above 38.7c, loss of taste or smell, persistent cough or shortness of breath) then please make a note of the symptoms and when they started.’
