Schools in Scotland to re-open on 11th August.


I actually think when this happens and assuming there is no significant rise in new infections for the 3 weeks thereafter, just about everything else will re-open. Schools was the big thing which had to get back to normal as a priority.
Problem as always is going to be the effect of social distancing on other businesses such as indoor music venues, gyms, nightclubs etc. Too many just won't be viable any more with restricted numbers and will close.

She’s spot on here,embarrassing from the Tory


This is embarassing. A national disgrace.

From February to June, England was top of the table with a death rate some 7.55 per cent higher than usual, said the Office for National Statistics. It overtook Spain, which had suffered a higher peak earlier in the crisis, and by May 29th had an excess death rate of 6.65. Scotland came third with 5.11, followed by Belgium at 3.89, Wales, at 2.78, Sweden at 2.26, the Netherlands, at 2.21, and Northern Ireland at 2.03, with France at just 0.16.

An Office for National Statistics spokesman confirmed that the four nations and regions of the UK together had a combined rate that was higher than any other country.

The English Government was criticised by the cross Party Public Accounts Committee just yesterday, described as scandalous, as did care home Unions, the National Audit Office confirmation that 25,000 people went untested from hospitals into care homes between mid-March and mid-April.

The Scottish Government did the same. Freeman gave false figures of the numbers in Scotland recently.

These actions unquestionably caused unnecessary deaths of elderly people. Sturgeon and Freeman would not accept the invitation to take part in the BBC Scotland' Disclosure programme...The Care Home Scandal. No wonder.

Both Johnson and Sturgeon have said in the past 24 hrs , regarding this that, best advice was followed at the time. The backslapping on Twitter, above is also embarrassing.

Before the usual political ping pong starts. I have constantly been critical of the pathetically weak response to the Tories handling of all aspects of the outbreak, from Labour's front bench, including Starmer, Ashworth and other timid spokepersons.

I’ve said from the start it’s terrible what has happened in care homes and should be an enquiry into who’s to blame.

I don’t think anyone comes out looking good in the 1st few months of this but there’s no denying that since we took a slightly more cautious route that the situation now infection/recent death wise looks a lot better in comparison to elsewhere.
For that I’m willing to give NS,The Gov and all of us that have stuck to the guidance some credit.

Best advice was followed at the time?
Who could ever have thought the best advice was to send them without testing?

The big fear as Devi Sridhar has said is that all the things that have re-opened will have to close again in the winter when the second wave hits. If that happens i'm not sure there will be the same willingness to comply from businesses and people in this country as there was in March/April.

The shambles gets worse. Over to you Mr Hancock. This is getting made up on the hoof.

To be honest I think they've always been making it up as they go along:

Big business says keep the economy going. It keeps going. This was even before the UK had its first cases but everyone else saw what was happening in Italy, Spain and France.

Boris assures big business the UK will remain open for business hides.

Science computer says no, 100s of thousands will die. Reluctantly the torys acknowledge covid exists and introduce herd immunity program.

Boris suggests stiff upper lip and taking on the chin will see off this nasty flu type virus then hides.

Public outrage as 100s start to die.

A flimsy as fuck, not even close to lockdown happens.

The UK starts a game of Where's the Prime Minister. Some old geezer with 2020 vision spots some dodgy Cummings and goings and is subsequently assassinated by the tory press.

In the meantime Torys grease the palms of party contributers when they think no-one is looking.

Torys pressured by big business to open up the economy.

Science computer says no, 10s of thousands more will die.

Lockdown eased way too soon. Schools opened, schools closed (in England) everyone heads for the beach. Local lockdowns all over the place.

England has more daily deaths than the rest of Europe combined.

HM Government hides goes on holiday.

Its sadly "amazing" the amount of damage someone just going to the pub can cause and he/she probably didn't have any symptoms.😥

There were early cases in South Korean churches which were micro traced back to one super spreader who went to church, had lunch with her friends then went clubbing and infected 500 people.

Same in Australia with "super spreaders" from weddings and staggies knocking out entire small towns.😥.

Now that Scotland🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 has effective track,trace and protect we are just catching up with the reality of how contagious this virus really is.

Everything is geared up to the schools reopening next week and other clusters are inevitable.

There was a convincing English🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 professor saying that in our society governments may have to choose between pubs and schools and he might be right🤔
