Fully pfizered. Good of the guy to tell me as I was leaving that delta variant is 'ripping through' my age group and people are still being hospitalised after both doses. 

Really glad I came down now mate.

Looking at your previous posts, I thought it was the magic mushies you were on.

I flew into Edinburgh so booked the pricey one. No contact from anyone during quarantine but the emailed results were headlined by the NHS logo, so it's possible the NHS keep a record. If it's just Randox or whoever they probably don't.

I don't say this lightly, either lockdown again or get the schools back open. The train into Edinburgh is like a fucking crèche.

Unfortunately it is starting to seem like the only way out of mask mandates is most other countries removing them and the SG having no option but to follow.

Or if the prices continue to collapse and the Chinese factories et al stop making them.

It was only because of shortages that mask were not mandatory in the early days.

No matter what any "health expert/politician" says.

How does this hotel quarantine thing work? Are there staff there watching you to make sure you don't leave?

I was talking to a guy at work about this just last week. Pre-pandemic he worked as a part time bouncer at nightclubs in Edinburgh. He got furloughed from his day job as a cleaner. Anyway, he ended up working security at the hotel for a good while.

The issues he said were people going off their nut with boredom, only allowed out for an escorted 15 minutes a day to an enclosed space for fresh air (alone). The conditions are alright, he told me, but it is like being in prison. 

There were loads of people trying to avoid going into the hotel in the first place - he told me a story of four Chinese guys who came into the airport, managed to give security the slip and hopped in a taxi. The taxi was stopped exiting the airport by the police. He had loads of other stories too.

I got told the same by a nurse while getting a COVID test so that I could go in for an operation ( more likely to catch it while in for that operation)

I know a guy who did quarantine in Thailand last year and it wasn’t half as strict as this. Allowed out for hours a day with other folk after a test on day two and had a balcony to sit out on for fresh air off his room.
UK quarantine is almost in humane by comparison.

UK_Centrist is one of my favourites to see what the latest in fear is. Another one worth watching is this guy:

Clickbait headlines like this only make the lovejoys "big events = bad" mentality even worse. The people could have caught covid from anywhere, the transport to get there, a pub/restaurant they went to, a shop they went in etc. So misleading

That UK_Centrist account is one of those odd ones that always crops up early in replies. It's a bit like that weird British Alba account that seems to always pop up in the first 3 places whenever a prominent journalist tweets.

Surely it's a bot?

You'd think 20 cases from a four day festival was something to celebrate. Lots of young people out enjoying life with their friends and a measly 20 cases makes the headline!

Daily Cases Update:  Day 24 of dropping cases and down another decent 2.62% to 161.3   Infectivity drops 2 ticks again to 6.1%.  We are now down over 62% from the peak 3 1/2 weeks ago.  First mainland council drops below 100 and only 3 remain above 200. 

As i indicated before I think we are close to the new Bottom number.  Todays reported cases at 1,456 is definitely up on last week. I think we have another couple of very small drops to come over my next 2 reported days.  I think 150 cases per 100K may be the bottom line for a while.

1st Vaccines slump again from 2, 518 down to 2,156   Still circa 370,000 to go.  2nd vaccines also drop from 19,327 to 17,646.

Total Cases Scotland 7 days from 21st July to 27th July  were 9,053 now 8,816 down 2.62%.  Positivity was 6.3%  now 6.1%.   Cases per 100k were 165.6  now 161.3

Home Nations Daily update  :  UK Average  376.5 to 353.5 down 6.11%, England 401.4 to 375.2 down 6.53%, Wales 167.5 to 165.9 down 0.96%, Northern Ireland  515.0 to 509.9  down 0.99%

So that's the UK down for 5 days in a row.  Scotland 24 days, Wales 7 days, England 5 days and Northern Ireland 2 days

Highest in UK now down to 861.8 (Middlesborough)

Latest European figures today. Spain 376.0 to 369.9, France  217.7 to 222.7, Portugal  204.8 to 198.7, Netherlands  196.5 to 185.9, Greece  179.1 to 180.0, Ireland 174.8 to 178.3, Russia  113.0 to 112.2  No other major European nation above 100. That has not changed for a week. 

Poland, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, Albania, Bosnia, Ukraine, North Macedonia,  Czech Rep, Bulgaria, Germany, Latvia, Moldova, Serbia, Slovenia, Croatia, Sweden, Austria, Norway are all still under 35 cases per 100K. 

Scotland peaks in Wave 3 at 425.1 for 27th June to 3rd July, (UK was 229.9) . Cases that day were 23,222 and positivity 10.8%

Scotland previously peaked in wave 2 at 301.9 for figures 29th Dec to 4th Jan, (UK was 642.1)    Cases that day were 16,496 and test positivity rate was 11.9%

Daily capacity of 40,000 it says there. So “up to” 20 cases from 160,000.

0.0001%, and doesn’t even say if a single one of them is even symptomatic never mind at all ill.
