IOM Covid removing restrictions


Recommended Posts

Not going to comment on the last few pages but having just spent half an hour browsing social media, it would appear pressure is mounting to get the borders open.

A couple of months ago the majority seemed fairly happy.  That really doesn’t appear to be the case now with what only appears a small number not expecting an open border soon, or at the very least an indication of what they want to see before that happens.

I really don’t see how they can justify restrictions on top of what the rest of The British Isles will have.

Pressure is mounting and they need to sort it out.

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

Listen John, I’m happy to accept any decision (within reason) or restriction they place upon us provided the science, data or advice that those directives are based upon are in the public realm.

This nonsense (hiding behind CoMin confidentiality) has been going on for months now.

We are now at the stage where the U.K. & CI are opening up.

There better be some cast iron reasoning why we shouldn’t be following suit. That’s all my & many, many of my friends & business peers are asking. Is that so unreasonable?

So, then, we don’t disagree. But you wouldn’t know it from the tone and content of your posts.

The natives are growing restless. Up the revolution.

I’m much more nicerer in person. My written ranting is hard to tone down.

I didn’t get a reply. Which says it all.  I have actually gone to the level of my friend from a different school gives me their work for our boys to do instead.

 

it’s this preparation thing that gets me...literally past however many weeks it’s been they have known they will have to be going back at some point so why not sort it out then..instead of wasting yet another week.....genuinely is it unions at play?

In a word, nope. 
In many words, school staff find out anything when you do - via a confusing press release read out badly during a 4pm briefing.

For those interested here’s Ashford interview with PM covering restrictions,borders etc . Sounds like the requirements to isolate away from families will be revised, presumably in time for 3a at end of month

Do we actually have any worthwhile restrictions in place any more, pretty much my entire street has been in/out all weekend, social media full of groups walking, bike riding, picnicking on the beach (even in the cold). 

Not much evidence of 'STAY AT HOME' up our way.

Schools back 19th.

I've heard from someone in the hospitality trade the 26th appears to be the date for the rest.

If it is true, it is ridiculous. The last unknown new case was on 24/3, 18 days ago. The unexplained case on 29/3 I reckon was not telling the truth to track and trace as no other cases came up linked to it. Dr. E pretty much said she was happy that it was linked. Even if you include that case, Monday 19th is the required 21 days. By then, active cases and those in isolation will be minimal. Time to open everything up.

I think Stay at Home ended before Easter. You cannot go visiting people in their gardens, go to the garden centre and stay at home all at the same time.

Only to people trying to earn a living or see friends and family.

Everything else seems to be back to normal based on the number of people out and about.

People are past caring.  Just open up and crack on.

The schools needing a week extra is an absolute joke

Ashie has just said in PM interview that there will be no more changes announced tomorrow, after Comin on Thursday for next changes so tomorrow meeting will be a waste of time.

A lot of what Ashie says is pointless and has been all along.

One thing I noticed was Ashford stating there was "only" 1 person in hospital whereas the dashboard indicated there was no one in hospital.

Decent interview.   Spoke well I thought.

You can also see from what he is saying that the last "unknown " case looks to be more likely linked but the person with Covid either wasn't being honest or has a memory problem.
