Home or work, well mostly home these days.
Just read we are testing the most of any country in the world.
Trouble is it's taking a week to get results, it's not how many are tested, it's how many get the results in good time, people who haven't had a result aren't isolating like they should be either.

It's all about the messaging, and some very important messages are not being hammered home, the biggest, if you suspect you have symptoms then you have to isolate, when was that last mentioned, May ?

Spain's cases seem to have plateued or so I read today so hopefully at worst we will follow that trajectory.
Nobody has a clue about Spain's cases as they change on a daily basis, they report 12000 one day, then the next that figure is 3000, then a week later it's 12000 again. What is clear is Spain's deaths are going up quickly, 239 reported today.

There was a Dr on sky today saying getting tests are difficult but the Heathrow hub was empty , try and contact them direct or just go if local, worth a go
We have been advising the families at our school to head direct to the test centre at Belle Vue without making a booking. Some have been tested there and then and we now have the pupils back in school 3 days since they had to leave and isolate. Same for 3 TAs and one teacher. Without this rapid turnaround we're knackered. I can't guarantee everyone will get the same response, but as Karen says, it's worth trying.

Department of Health consultation period ends at midnight on Friday.

The UK government is seeking views on proposed changes to the Human Medicine Regulations 2012 but only gave from 28 August for comment.

The consultation covers:

  • authorising temporary supply of an unlicensed product
  • civil liability and immunity
  • expanding the workforce eligible to administer vaccinations
  • promoting vaccines
  • making provisions for wholesale dealing of vaccines
If you are happy for a hospital administrator with a few hours training to administer an unlicensed vaccine which has had limited testing you don’t need to do anything. But if like me you grew up with a friend whose Mum took Thalidomide you might want to raise your objection in the next 48 hours.

It feels to me like we are sleepwalking into another lockdown. 130 schools have covid cases in Manchester, and the positive cases are going up despite the lack of testing being available.
