Can you guys start a separate thread titled "Jersey is ace - oh no it isn't" and leave this one to a discussion on IOM and the coronavirus?

...and I so wanted a long illustrious career at the DHSC   I run my own company so my involvement with the DHSC to set up and keep the COVID19 lab running wasn't exactly in the professional caree

I'll put a big disclaimer here that I'm not the person who decides who gets tested and when.  Saying that, I am a scientist who understands that if you test someone on the day they arrive and the

I honestly believe this is going to go full circle and the UK will call time on it all.

The public seem to have had enough of it. There are the simply not the resources in terms of enforcement, policing, testing nor finance to come up with a viable policy to control this thing.

The outcry will become protest and civil disobedience (already happening but press quelling it) then all bets will be off. Rapid spread through the entire populous.

Boris had the chance in March when we restricted entry here on the IOM to do the same. They delayed & dithered & the horse bolted.

They failed epically with their pledges of world leading track & tracing.

We will inevitably have to adopt a Jersey style model to resume normality & mitigate the virus transmission but I'd say we are looking at post Keys election 2021 for this to come in at the earliest. Life is going to be very different starting with Christmas.

Funny, I have never seen "Smoking" as cause of death on a certificate. 

Well I’ve seen some with emphysema including my father and uncle which is caused by smoking along with numerous other diseases.

Not sure why SoS and Banker actually stay on the Island. If they don't like the rules, there's always a boat in the morning...

Smoking related deaths are nothing short of suicide. You can’t transmit that  to other innocent folk.

Er. passive smoking killed Roy Castle if I remember correctly....sorry to dis-agree Dilly.

Oh yes, I know that, but I meant the disease caused by smoking could not be passed on, like Covid-19 and flu.

I used to smoke in front of others, but looking back, I may have harmed them. Hate smoke now. Not smoked for almost 20 years.

I agree that Boris is worse than useless, however Whitty and Co have imho allowed themselves to be used to spread political scare propaganda. That graph is one of many scenarios that didn't get highlighted and are just as likely, and it was noticeable that they verbally tried to distance themselves from it, however as I said earlier people will just look at the  coloured lines and the huge numbers, with their faces next to it. There were no bold text disclaimers. They're focus is understandably on reducing health issues above all else, but I think that they are now in danger of losing their credibility in much the same way as Ferguson  has with his 500k deaths prediction.  

I prefer to believe they are astute enough to not get embroiled in the politics. Here's why.

They are very much in the public eye. That includes the vultures of the UK rabid right wing press in thrall to the agenda of the owner. Which is to say pretty much all of it. Which is why you can safely ignore anything by The Sun, Sky, Telegraph, Mail, Express and so forth. They also know that their right wing Brexit poster boy has proved to be amazingly more useless than even those who know him expected.

So if they can spread the blame for the catastrophe he has caused they will. With rubbishing Whitty and Vallance being a good starting point. So you can bet they'll be watching their arses.

With Brexit they'll just blame the EU like they've been doing for years and years and years....

Someone told me all primary school kids over here are getting a flu vaccine this year, some kind of nasal spray. Is this true? Haven't heard anything from the school.

That's how they vaccinate kiddies. It's a good idea. Cheap too.

Just arm the Nit Nurse with the spray and it's "Job Done" sticker.

They don't have a nit nurse anymore. And I know that a spray is an option. The question is, is it happening? I can't be arsed phoning the school, I don't get on with the mole.

Edit - according to this they are, and I should have got a letter. Guess I'll have to ring up anyway.
