Another government scientist wants us to remain in lockdown. As only 23 people who had at least one jab 21+ days beforehand were subsequently hospitalised with Covid (and didn't die) it won't make much difference except to get us closer to herd immunity more quickly - unless a new varriant comes to the party of course.
Not sure if herd immunity is a possibility if this particular virus can mutate so rapidly.

yes not as bad as yesterday just knackered and aching. Feel bad as My lad is off school again and he has barely been in! First day back after Easter and off again. Mrs has it but no symptons at all.

Sounds like you've escaped the worse (or the vax has helped....dunno). I was floored for nigh on two weeks.
Carry on recuperating mate....need those Trinity Towers released soon...

Greater Manchester Cases


118 cases today - down 40 on yesterday - more than half the NW total which fell by 60 to 210 today.

This is down 57 week to week from 175 - which is the lowest GM total in 2021. And a lot of late 2020 too.


Manchester top scores on 42 - down 2 on day and 5 week to week.

Bolton stays second on 21 - down 4 on the day and 2 on last week. (These two had over half the GM total)

Tameside goes from best to third worst but only up 4 to 12 on the day though rising 11 from last week.


ALL SEVEN OTHER BOROUGHS ARE IN SINGLE FIGURES TODAY!


Salford down 1 on 9 which is a fall of 3 from last wk.

Stockport - on 8 is down 11 on the day and level week to week.

Trafford also on 8 down from 12 on the day and wk to wk.

Oldham makes it a trio on 8 down 2 on the day and another 13 drop on last week.

Wigan down 2 on the day to 6 and 13 wk to wk

Rochdale on 3 down 6 on the day and 21 week to week and best numbers in months here.

And top spot goes again to.....

Bury with just 1 case - lowest you can other than zero - down by 12 on the day and 7 from last week.

GM Weekly Pop Data after today:~

Borough / Pop Today / 7 days ago / up or down wk to wk/ Testing is % of local population who have tested positive for Covid over past year.

As ever with Pop going up is bad, going down good - the higher the number the better or worse depending on direction moving. The Pop is total cases in past week versus 100,000 POPulation to even out the comparison versus size and expected cases based on numbers living there.



Bolton 54 / 34 / UP 20 Testing positive 9.1%

Manchester 51 / 39/ UP 12 Testing positive 9.6%

Oldham 46 / 48 DOWN 2 Testing positive 9.7%

Tameside 36 / 16 UP 20 Testing positive 8.1%

Rochdale 35 / 42 / DOWN 7 Testing positive 9.6%

Bury 29 / 18 / UP 11 Testing positive 9.0%

Salford 28 / 28 / LEVEL Testing positive 8.9%

Stockport 28 / 19 / UP 9 Testing positive 7.1%

Trafford 26 / 20 / UP 6 Testing positive 6.9%

Wigan 24 / 30 / DOWN 6 Testing positive 8.8%


Half the borough under 30 and separated by just 5. Wigan take over the lead after some impressive scores. Stockport slips a little after a couple of 'high' scores by current standards,

But in essence the county is evening out and returning to what it looks like at low numbers all round.

Bullshit. What he actually said was

"I think if we do start to see significant rises in cases in some parts of the country, they may need to adjust back those dates in order to avoid the situation coming into effect,"

How is this "wants us to remain in lockdown"?
Well if you can't see the pronouncement for what it is, you never will.
