    We need to slow this down as much as possible don't you think?

    Carrying on social distancing etc. It's no biggy. What's the alternative? Overwhelm the NHS all over again? They can be as ready as they like this time but if hospitals fill, they fill.


    Gave me a belly laugh - cheers! :)

    Test and trace

    Worryingly no tests are available today at any of the Northern hotspots.

    What? But we have a world beating test and trace system, it was launched on June 1st, and today the home secretary said that it was all OK.
    The long suffering people must be lying!

    On R5L this morning....

    Family in SW London, child displaying symptoms.
    Follow the rules, isolate family and get a test.

    Can't get a test or appointment, for days.

    Eventually, gives up and drives family to local drive - in centre sans appointment, and explains situation.

    Gatekeeper gives the guy an Aberdeen postcode, as this is one of the areas where testing is permitted.
    While this itself is a farce, take this logic further.

    When you have a test, you send the sample off. The sample is traced by barcode and reference number.
    You have to log onto a gov website, and link your personal, contact, and ethnicity-type details.

    If this R5L guy inputs the Aberdeen postcode into the portal, and comes his family comes in positive, (and enough other people do the same), will Aberdeen show a spike (and even get locked down), because of cases in SW London?
