    The name's Rum, Len Rum.
    R's too high. ( 1 in some regions ).
    The rate of new infections is 'not a low number' according to Liberty Valance.
    Remind me again why are we unlocking so soon rather than wait another two weeks?

    Fair enough mate. Not in a great mood tonight in particular so maybe I'm overreacting. Just very angry at the moment.

    You're a good guy. Try not to let your concerns overwhelm you.

    Not disagreeing with you. But many have been saying ‘why not just a wait a couple weeks’ for a long time now.

    You do not need there to be cases of the virus in the general public to test a vaccine.

    You have to have exposure to the virus to know if the vaccine works or not.
    So either you need viral transmission or you have to infect people deliberately.

    I've got multiple friends working on the frontline in hospitals in the North West. Or at least they were all until they got moved back to their regular wards as there was not enough covid cases. Not going into an office week m with diabetes is common sense and my work will be exactly the same.

    We've not really had a spike though have we. The number of people in hospital with covid in the NW is lower than at any time since around the end of March and has steadily declined. If you're talking about the number of positive tests then of course that will be higher as more are being tested.
