The NHS figures have been published for the past month in England of people in hospital with vs due to COVID.

As it stands, it's about 77% because of COVID.

I would imagine that for a relatively small place like the IoM, we could produce accurate figures for those hospitalised for other reasons but tested positive once admitted but without symptoms?

Again though it is abut confidentiality. We are too small to handle the information. I know of two people admitted in the last day or so as emergencies so any announcement on Covid would automatically inform me of their clinical state.

Not sure that is fair really.

The dashboard is showing an additional death. 

Same in Guernsey today.

Sincere condolences to anyone who loses a friend or family member but it does happen millions of times everyday world wide.

I will get called out for being heartless but there have been several other deaths on island this week.

Every death is awful for those close to it, but we can’t stop them all and if we did we would have a whole heap of other issues.

Saw on Twitter earlier someone say that a friend was rushed in to hospital with COVID last night and has sadly passed.

Just been confirmed on IOM government Facebook that someone has died so now regrettably official

Contact tracing seems to have stopped when we changed the border policy. Although Ashford is implying this was unexpected.

He sounds deflated.

Just sack off the border testing and open up to everyone like the exit framework said we would when cases match UK.

Its awful that teenagers and single or non jabbed people have to test when infected locals can wander around freely, and even worse that some people still aren’t allowed in at all.

Couldn't have been that expected as they had a very recent and very quick recruitment drive around the same period for contact tracers etc.  Think they are acknowledging they cant do the scale of contact tracing they find themselves in atm.  So what happens with this team going forward,  I think a few were on zero hour contracts but there were a number of full time roles with in the team.

Most of the team were less than useless anyway. We underinvested all the way through this in what should have been front line pandemic defenses.
