Wooft! I think we always knew 1,000s of students coming to Edinburgh would cause problems and one of Napiers halls is in the news this morning.

Word on the street is Edinburgh is in line for local lockdown! Screenshot_20200917-115135_COVID Symptom Study.jpg

Not lookin god, huh? As you say, predictable in student towns.

Seein the same here in NL - here on the west coast area all the way down from Zandvoort to Rotterdam. Leiden is one of the oldest uni towns in Europe, infections thru the roof!

More hunkering down? Fúkkittall

I caught a bit of student bashing on radio Scotland this morning.

I don't know what's expected - tens of thousands of young people who are one of the "least affected" groups converging on the capital and live in a room. Of course they are going to go out.
Agreed.

I think it is very unfair that young people/students etc are being targeted for blame in some quarters for the rise in infections.

Lothian going to be next hit with restrictions similar to Glasgow area I fear.
Visits to other households banned, pubs/restaurants closing early etc

So it now turns out that the coronavirus can’t get you if you’re at school, in the office, drinking in a shithole Wetherspoons, in a grouse shooting party or spending money in Blackpool.
Splendid, shut down Lancashire and invite everyone their to ram Blackpool for a party.
As far as I can see none of the crappy MSM including the BBC and ITV News at one o'clock have even asked why this is, nor Hancock giving a reason.

My friend noted a while back that the narrative is the blame is being placed on the ordinary person. You and me. From the tory government at least - I think the scottish government is a bit more nuanced.

People breaking regulations
people getting covid tests when they shouldnt
people not following guidelines

See, I have a real problem with this.

I know few people breaking regulations.
I know few people who are getting covid tests when they shouldnt
I know few people not following guidelines

So, I struggle to believe that the general public is breaking regulations, getting tests when they shouldnt and not following guidelines. In fact I believe that generally people are doing their best to follow the garbled message from our politicians. I believe people are struggling to get tests.

We also know that key officials involved in the message have openly flouted the regulations they expect others to follow. That is a real problem.

I'm not surprised when I read there's not enough covid tests. It's absolutely shameful to dress this up as somehow the public to blame. I'm even less surprised when the government doesnt take responsibility. But then, very few of us in Scotland voted for them.

A few times this week i've heard them mention that tests are free, I think one of the tory bastards even said at this time. I bet their choking to introduce a charge, just to make them more accessible.

I should stress and remind folk that these are not official figures they are taken from the Covid-19 app mentioned earlier.

We are going to see a ban for two weeks on visiting other households, and pubs and bars having to close at 10.

I don't think there will be another national lockdown. To do so would have catastrophic economic consequences and Westminster and Holyrood know this.

One day it is going to dawn on the politicians that you cannot control this virus....nor can you eliminate it. Covid-19 is here to stay and the sooner we learn how to live with it the better. A vaccine will help with immunity but that could be a long way off and might never happen.

About the positivity rate, so if it's approaching 5% does this mean that 19 out of 20 people who think they have covid symptoms and get a test turn out not to have it and if so does anyone else think this is quite odd?

That's what it means though I can't say I have researched the theory behind this 5% number.

New persistent cough, high temperature and loss of taste and smell are three possible indicators of Covid but equally these must be prevalent in all sorts of day to day nothing illness and minor ailments.?

I guess you are right. I don't understand where the numbers come from though. Say the positivity rate is 5% and 4,000 new cases are reported daily in the UK, that indicates 80,000 people have been tested, yet the daily figures on the gov.uk covid site claim over 200,000 tests currently processed daily
