If it were me, the people present at the particular venues would have been offered a test 10 days post-exposure (whatever date that happens to be) and told to isolate in the mean time. That wouldn't h

1. Ashy said on the radio this morning that Iom will get around 100,000 doses. Enough to vaccinate around 50,000 people, by around next summer/ autumn. I'll let you do the maths.

2. He was high risk. He would have been vaccinated. However, having already recovered from the virus, he does not require a vaccination. 

3. There will always be casualties. 

I really don't know what point you are trying to make now.

There's no way in hell they'd be bringing in a lockdown now, there's simply no good reason to, unless they're about to reveal a big community spread.

Though, given the New Rules On Isolation, and the fact that families are far more likely to mingle with the isolators and contract it, there could be a bit of a different approach being brought in. The new rules mean that quite easily, person A could come home asymptomatic, pass the virus to person B, who doesn't develop symptoms until they've been quite merrily enjoying their freedom after 14 days.

Possibly a recommendation of face coverings and 1m+ social distancing, not as there's any immediate risk but to get people ready for the influx of people over Christmas, and the greater risk that could pose.

Which again, is nonsense. We're not shipping a load of people in from the third world. Take sensible precautions and carry on.

Lots of 3rd world countries doing better than England are, plus, have you ever been to Morecambe? Bits of that feel rougher than a lot of places.

Though, given that the risk is increasing, albeit to a still very low level, I'd rather be asked to wear a mask and keep everywhere open and operating as normal, than to have to go back to where we were at first lockdown.

Fair point about the third world.

The risk is still the same as it was last month and with the new quarantine restrictions it will still be the same next month too. Any decision to mandate mask wearing will be a political one to fall in line with across and the majority of the wider world, not based on an increase (projected or otherwise) after any risk assessment here.

No lockdown. Whispers come to nothing, shock.

First whispers I heard were about three weeks ago, from someone who works at the hospital. He said the hospital were ramping up beds ready for a probable lock down before Christmas. 

You will also notice signs back up in Shoprite, etc. saying they will limit numbers of item sales.

All bollocks about lockdown, the signs on limits are in response to the usual suspects stocking up on big rolls etc when uk announced lockdowns

Supply chains have been a bit skewed for a while anyway with COVID rolling around. Everything from toilet rolls to computer parts to motorbike tyres are impacted.
