Press briefing late, just like the lock down.
Until they sort out test, trace and isolate nothing will change. The 98% tests are negative – perhaps they are wasting their time! And without the trace and isolate element, a complete waste of time and money.
Be effective – test and if positive – ensure economic security for isolation and proper support. And schools and universities to stay open. Firstly universities – there can be no sensible reason for keeping them open. Schools, a bit different as they tend to be more local in catchment (if not shut them), I don’t know what the stats are. Similarly with shops. Why shut a garden centre that has clear social distancing at all times? The same with cafes and restaurants.
What I am saying is that compliance, effective measures; test, track, isolate and support are what is needed. Interesting talk with an epidemiologist on the radio who had looked at what Vietnam, N.Z, Australia, South Korea, Taiwan had done that made them better than us. It seems that there is not one thing. Proper TTTS was important but also clear guidelines for public to follow, isolation for 14 days after any foreign travel,
Prediction that BJohnson will talk up Christmas, a vaccine and other bollocks!
