Not how I read it  - the article says that a 3rd wave could be substantially  higher if a new variant appears, not that a 3rd wave would be dependant on it

Does the article agree with the headline or do you agree that the headline is clickbait?

I honestly don't think the headline is far from the content.  Where do you think they are far apart?

An entirely new pandemic could arise at any time as well. I think we should just become a hermit species until the end of time - just for safety, mind.

Im posting this screenshot i received, the context ive heard is that its part of an email sent to GP surgeries in Glasgow, it was circulating on a whatsapp group for doctors. That said I’ve not seen the full email so can only offer it in the manner it was sent to me. What I would say is that if the decision to delay moving down a level is delayed its absolutely scandalous. I cant get the neighbourhoods section of the infection map to open, but can anyone see a marked rise in the area mentioned who can make it work?

Given that Eid hasn’t even happened yet I’m going to suggest that this is fake as f**k

I think behind the volume ID it said ‘ AND eid’ which yes doesnt happen til thursday? That said i hope it is fake. Surely someone will be able to check the stats for the southside case rates? If it is a real email then its a disgrace in my view. 
Qualify by saying ive not noticed any significant rise in social mixing, but if this is the sort of thing circulating in medical circles then is it clear evidence of scare tactics?

eta just had clarification that it IS genuine. (Apparently the person who has taken the screenshot and posted it on a dr’s whatsapp group is a GP in Glasgow).

Small thing but why would a cart blanche email read dear colleague rather than dear colleagues because if it was just one person you would use their name.

Also test kits are available online and that is likely where patients would be pointed to.

Eid is today, isn't it? 

I don't think it's a stretch to say that families will meet together in the run up to it tbh. And fair enough too - many wont have seen their families for a while. 

As long as people don't take the piss I have no problem with it, even if guidance officially says no.

The cases have been higher in Moray but maybe appear to be levelling off now? Elgin & Keith were both 400+ but they're both now in the 300+ range and other areas 200+. The concern there is the amount of community transmission (3.3% test positivity). But I was slightly surprised they didn't raise any concerns about the increases in certain areas of Glasgow at the press briefing yesterday (2.5% test positivity).

It was originally just central Easterhouse that was 400+ (now 500+, but the other areas of Easterhouse are still low, so maybe a single outbreak?). The cases have jumped over in the South side now though, I've no idea if its related to Eid or not, but it's definitely on the increase as it's centred around Pollokshields and nearby Govanhill is 200+, but more and more areas of the city are starting to show up. 

Edit: Probably the 100-200 cases is just to be expected with less restrictions, it's when places go above the 3-400 it's a concern.

Sky right now reporting on case rises across 28 authorities in the NW of England. Some have test positivity back above 5% and report saying that local measures may need to be reimposed if the trends continue.

What did they honestly expect as measures relax and when does cases / positivity stop being the trigger metric ?

They have a whole load of metrics but only look at one.  

BBC now have a graph saying Glasgow is above level 3 for cases but with no other context.

We need to get out of X cases shut stuff down very very quickly or we will never get anything anywhere near normality. The Moray discussion yesterday depressed the hell out of me.
