Thete is still not a lot of evidence that England๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ have their test and trace system up and running with talk of it not been fully operational until October.

As always with English exceptionalism the target just needed to be a basic "functioning" track and trace system but they set themselves an unattainable target of this having to be "world beating".๐Ÿ˜ฅ.

Lessons learned from the abandoned track and trace app. None.๐Ÿ˜ฅ

Scotland๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ needs England to get this right though and it was very heartnening to see them move so quickly on Spanish and Catalonian travel as well as delay for 2 weeks lockdown releases and reimpose limited lockdown on parts of Northern England.โœ…

Naebody is dying which is great but the daily infections moving average is slowly but surely going up.๐Ÿค”

Schools are imminently going back and you wonder if Scotland๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ is soon going to reach the cusp of what can realistically be allowed.

Thanks for the updates, Sam.
Pubs are open, fitba's back and schools are starting next week.
Many people think we're back to normal.
We're not.
The 13 cases in the Aberdeen boozer had risen to 27 yesterday.....could be double that number by now.
This is not over by a long, long way.

Bad news from the Faroes Islands which was Covid-free since April but has now recorded 52 cases in two days all originating from just the one person.๐Ÿ˜ฅ

Its just inevitable that the near future is going to be dominated by clusters here and clusters there but hopefully not clusters everywhere.๐Ÿ˜ฅ

Positive cases in Scotland๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ over the last month are still on an upward trajectory which is just about inevitable given the experience of other European countries with France๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท the latest travel domino to fall.

Cases in England also๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ rising.

Scottish numbers are still very low in relative terms but with schools now reopened and the economy moving the internal hidden computer projections can only be upwards.

Test, trace and isolate is very important now as 6 weeks from now and life begins to move indoors.

Its going to be a miserable winter as its hard to see many positives. ๐Ÿ˜ฐ

Hibs aside.๐Ÿ˜‰

Maybe it's just naive optimism on my part, but I have a feeling the winter won't be as bad for Covid infections and deaths as some are predicting.

Surely to God we will be better prepared for any new infections in a second wave and be in a position to protect the vulnerable people who need protecting a lot better than we did in March/April ?

I also think all over 50's should get the flu jag. I don't know logistically how difficult that would be, but it should be done.

The key thing is to protect the elderly, people in care homes and hospitals, and those with underlying health problems. There is no excuse for allowing the death disaster of the first couple of months of this pandemic to happen again. We know far more about this virus now than we did back in March.

Hibs certainly are a side.

But the general future is up for grabs

Here are a bunch of "interesting" if you like that sort of thing๐Ÿ˜‰ graphs and data that show how Coronavirus seem to have affected other aspects of Scottish ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ society.

Certainly seems to have spooked the ruling classes in Westminster๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ for the time being but they are very clever and crafty and they will be plotting a way back as there is far to much at stake especially for them๐Ÿค”

Prestige, nuclear weapons, born entitlement, renewable energy and non renewable energy will see to that.๐Ÿ˜‰

With regards to the A&E stats I generally think this is a good thing, fewer folk rocking up.

There will of course be lots of reasons for this, fewer folk out and about getting injured or pished or what have you but pre Covid-19 A&E was being abused and it had been for decades.

Is your injury as a result of an accident?

Is it an emergency?

For most, yes most, the answer would be no. The probability is that whatever folk turned up with could be more effectively dealt with elsewhere, at a later date, and maybe even have cleared up in a couple of days or with a feckin paracetamol.

But the NHS can't tell people to 'fuck off you're wasting our time' so everyone has to be seen.

In the meantime those with genuine emergencies or decent accidents canny get in the door to be assessed!

Of course everyone is triaged but, this being Thursday, the arsehole who sprained his ankle on Sunday playing football will be screaming blue murder because the guy with the heart attack or stroke was seen first.

Interesting trends are clearly showing that in Scotland๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ we are now identifying just as many positive tests as we did in the peak summer months which on the surface isn't good.๐Ÿ˜ฅ.

However this is easily explained by the massive increase in testing which is now up to over 15,000 tests per day.โœ….

Contract tracing now means it can also be identified where these new positive tests are coming from which are nearly all in new clusters.

Its hard to see where any government goes from here as the pattern is the same worldwide in that you can get this pandemic under control through the brute force of a lockdown and subsequent volume testing and contact tracing but its such a virulent disease that you can't eradicate it.๐Ÿค”

I like when commentators relate their stats back to some external source in this case the WHO as it gives a much better marker rather than bland number of tests which is a bit meaningless without context.โœ…

Scotland๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ at 1% to 2% still restricting the virus to clusters rather than community transmission which is very positive now that school reopening is well underway.โœ…

This is an interesting table from today as it shows the sheer volume of testing now taking place in Scotland๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ.โœ….

It also shows that worryingly there were 160 new cases๏ฟผ and that the 1% case ratio in total is still on track but certain age groups have broken this barrier.โŒ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

Jason Leitch the national clinical director was saying at the weekend that the computer models predict that Scotland is just about at the limit of what can be opened up.

There can't be much left apart from live football and Universities but its going to be a tough few weeks especially when you look at the European countries who are a month ahead but face rising cases.๐Ÿค”

Are colder countries more susceptible to COVID in autumn/winter months than warmer countries?

I've a niggle that indoor events will be capped to say 100 and outdoor events might be capped at 10% capacity.

On the bright side, if you do get a ticket for a game at Hampden you might actually be able to get a pie in less than half an hour.
