There is a clue in the words ‘Test and trace’. To trace you need an address, my understanding was that you needed proof of id to get a test, but as this is run for profit I suppose that details like this do not matter! And surely the test that found the P1 variant is identifiable to a geographic area or even areas? If not, why not – again rather basic.
And then we have the usual bolting the door after the horse has bolted. The variant was detected in January and located to Brazil, but strict quarantine measures were not brought in until 15th Feb. Is there an inter-government game here to see who can make the most balls ups! I guess it makes Johnson look better to be surrounded by so many absolute numpties! To quote from the Observer ‘to call Williamson incompetent is to pay him a compliment’.
