I got the impression Hetty wasn't too enamoured with the line of questioning from the media lady.

I think the term you’re looking for is “she got a right arse on”. She was clearly rattled and treated the journalist like a naughty child. I think that’s one of the best questions I’ve heard from our journalists. It’s a shame she wasn’t allowed to go the full Paxman on Hetty.

It’s certainly not your first suggestion.

 

A fourteen day rate is the total number of cases in the last 14 days divided by 14.

What you have described is a method I am unable to find in use anywhere to give a 'rate' of infection.

Can you point me in the right direction?

It reminded me of Laura Kunnesberg speaking to Matt Hancock yesterday. At least Dr E gave an answer.

That's where I think it's come from too - but as always, I stand to be corrected.

Right - carrying on with the arse theme, I think I've got to the bottom of it.

The IOM are using the UK's 14 day notification rate, which is favoured by the ECDC. This is not an average, it is the total number of cases in the previous 14 days added together and expressed in terms of per 100,000 of the population. So, by way of example, if a country had a population of one million, and had 467 covid infections in total during the previous 14 days, then it's 14 day notification rate would be 46.7/100K.

I'm not sure than a system being used for this purpose (border control) that relies solely on cases is as appropriate as it was before the vaccines began to have a significant impact.

Sounds a load of bollocks , just use the 7 day rate that ONS publish each week. Howie & co like to make everything so complex like this 7-10 day passive shit!

Looks like some folk have been totally losing it under lockdown restrictions. Good to see that the rules are finally being relaxed. Hopefully it will have a general calming affect amongst some of the locked down powder keg population.

The advocate disputed the compensation amount saying that there had not been major repairs to the door.

He said: ’That’s an outrageous sum for a bit of painting and maintenance. If it cost that much to paint a door, we’re all in the wrong trade.’

That's quite funny from an advocate. :D

It is quite funny from an advocate I agree. But rather worrying when people are clearly absolutely losing it like that just from being locked down. Makes some of the spats and wild accusations on this forum fade into insignificant really. When IRL people are clearly going bonkers and smashing up neighbours doors with fire extinguishers etc.

Where is Quayle getting 50 per 100,000 from as the U.K. infection rate?

I think they have some secret database that churns out what they want to report. Ireland's rate is higher but within the defined parameters but still subject to the same controls as India. They have to start treating us as adults not imbeciles.
