A tradie working in a nursing home was sent home from working there today because his good lady has tested positive.

I think Allinson and his 'not if but when' is really a sign of things to come but hopefully they prove to be false positive.

I think most people are thinking it will be in the community by Christmas, with students to blame.

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

From the outset I always thought that the level of asymptomatics would be much higher than was being reported, simply because of the lack of testing (UK in particular). Had these folk been identified earlier then they would have had to isolate. No questions or excuses. If asymptomatics are found outside of isolation then they deserve to get the book thrown at them.

 

It's such a deadly virus you need to be tested to see if you have it...lol

Yes, tell that to the 595 people that died in the UK in the last 24 hours. Oh wait you can't.

 

Before you start (because I've heard this a lot) yes people die every day and yes these people would have died anyway but for virtually all them that day wouldn't have been yesterday. Further I also am aware that lots of people died of other things yesterday but if the pandemic gets further out of hand and hospital admissions continue to grow (now above first wave levels in the North of England) then hospitals will close down to non-Covid patients and even more unnecessary deaths will occur. So yeah...LOL

Contact tracing of an existing case that came from off Island and they’re positive?

So does that mean these 2 new cases were community transmission then if it came about through contact tracing?

Based on what I’ve heard from multiple people today, this really doesn’t stack up.

I love this ‘note to editors’ by gov

As all seven of the Islands active cases have a clear, traceable chain of transmission related to off-Island travel, these do not count as community transmissions.

so, we have an index case that has clearly caused a community transmission but because it’s traceable to someone who had off-Island travel and they’re now isolating with their household, it’s a self isolating case.

LOVED @rachomicscomment on this whereby every case Mar-Jun would be contacts of contacts of contacts of people who travelled off Island and therefore not community cases.

What a bloody mess.

I have to say I too am struggling to understand how people who clearly caught it away, who came back on a communal boat or plane with other people, who got on a communal bus, in a communal taxi, or in a communal car with family or friends and then went home, and who were subsequently traced from common communal contacts who had the infection are not counted as communal cases. It seems that the minute you go home and shut your door your not in the community anymore despite the fact you picked up the infection in the community and others you interacted with have caught it too.

The who definition is clear. 

 

There is no community transmission.

Can anyone explain why there's tge hysteria about whether there's community cases or not?

I think because if people think it’s not “on the loose” they can’t catch it so they can sit at home polishing their pitchfork for another week.

Yes.

The perception or myth being peddled is that anyone that has tested positive for the virus in the last few weeks have got off the boat or plane and self isolated for 14 days only testing positive if they’d asked to be tested during that time.

A community case suggests that the person carrying the virus had mixed with potentially hundreds of others without knowing they had it before developing symptoms and testing positive.

They are night and day.

I must say, if we are going down this track then I don't believe we can call many of our cases 'community' transmissions from earlier this year when they were phrased as such. It does seem to be a matter of when the shoe fits.

Either way, these do appear to be cases of on-Island transmission.
