Corona virus on its own thread.

I think we're going to see similar everywhere to be honest.

Scotland has just recorded its worst figures of the pandemic.

Globally rates are soaring. I don't think it will be long (a week or so maybe) before we see the first 1,000,000* new cases in a day!

Probably around the same time we go through the 2,000,000* deaths barrier.

In other news there's a 3rd vaccine got the OK for the UK ... but it won't arrive in the country till the spring 🙄

Travellers to the UK will require a negative test before they get on the plane (or whatever). Good news ... about a year late!


* Officially recorded that is. I still have my doubts about many countries providing accurate data and other countries being able to provide it at all.

Got to be careful about figures for a single day. 93 is recorded deaths, but some go back more than a week. 7 day average is around 40, which is awful but still half of England average and a fraction of London. I don't think we'll reach anything like what's happening in the SE but who knows, things can turn so quickly as we've seen in Ireland and Wales recently.

Celtic face anxious wait ahead of Hibs clash as government add fresh Dubai quarantine rules

Government chiefs have tonight confirmed that Celtic are exempt from fresh Dubai quarantine rules.
Dubai has been added to Scotland’s travel quarantine list with travellers returning from the country told to self-isolate for 10 days. The rule comes into effect at 4am on Monday.
The rule will also apply retrospectively for passengers who have travelled to Scotland from Dubai since January 3.
They will have to self-isolate for 10 days dating from when they arrived back to Scotland.


Ms Sturgeon, Freeman and Mr Leitch, Celtic Football Club have played you like a fiddle.

Given one of the players actually has covid and they admit they weren't distancing properly, it would seem odd to exempt them from quarantine.

Story on BBC ten o'clock news.Surrey reporting the biggest rise in the country.Now apart from maybe Guildford this is pure waxed jacket, 4x4, Tory voting country;,Labour think they are doing ok if they come third.Now I don't wont to see people dieing but when it's happening to the Tories own then they will sit up and take notice.

Either Scot.gov demand the (new) law is enforced, while exerting maximum pressure and public criticism of the chinless wonders at the SPFL, match off and Hibs awarded 3 points or Celtic forced to play players who were not in Dubai. That's reasonable.

Either option is reasonable. But....
With John Kennedy admitting there were some 'minor slip ups' on Covid policies while in Dubai, this should be an open and shut job.

Starting to think that celtic decision could be scotlands Cummings moment.

Alot of football fans could decide that if celtic don't need to follow rules to the letter of the law and look for loopholes then they will too.
That celtic are chunts shouldnae mean fitba fans deciding they should "look for loopholes".

I think I will stay in the 99% of the population that will carry on trying no tae add to the pandemic clusterfuck, regardless of what they arseholes dae, or what the SPFL dae. You know. Be an adult.

Went through the park the day with the kids at the links, you wouldn’t even realise there was a lockdown, why are kids play parks still full.....

Precisely because there's a lockdown, there's little else for the kids to do.

I get your point but to be honest, it's outdoors and its little kids who are much less likely to get the virus, pass it on or get sick from it. There are bigger problems...

Edit: worth mentioning that kids don't need to social distance either and can legitimately be out in larger numbers.
