So Bonkers Johnson is going to address the nation at 8pm. As rates here (Sandford) and Lostwithiel and Bodmin are up 25% on the week to 30th Dec.` It would seem that he needs to take Starmer’s advice and a total lockdown is necessary. He also needs to clarify the death rate – too many people are still saying that the within 28 days of a positive test is wrong. It does not matter if it is wrong – covid patients are filling the beds and others are dying because of this. So Covid might not be killing them directly – but their dying is a result of covid.
