A very blunt post from a very senior doctor. 

Looks like a standard width road that? Even allowing for compression front to back, I can’t see how the groups across the width of the road are in line with the guidance - and even if they are all from the same house, people see that on the TV and think, “Why not me?”

Something else to get into the heads of the public 

I despair of academics and who think an interview is a good place just to test a proposition, a thought experiment if you will ...

Some very clever people don’t have the brains they were born with.

4.6k or so new cases announced today; very consistent at that level or above since the start of Apr. Bold hypothesis from that Professor.

Unless they are diagonal to each other.  That is hard to establish from this angle.

Isn't a good look on the BBC though.

Typical of Sky to indulge as well.  They like to stir things up on Sky.

If they were not naive, they would not speak to the press. Back when I was in academia, the effort science departments would go to to be clear to the media was painful. They could not comprehend the lack of responsibility or interest in truth that national newspapers had.

Theoretical question time.

Donald Trump's Valet has tested +ve, the VP, Mike Pence's Press Secretary has also tested +ve, what would happen, constitutionally, if both passed the virus to DT & MP respectively & the worst happens, and they BOTH pass away?

Where were you last Thursday?

Keifer Sutherland would take charge ?

Third in the presidential line of succession is the Speaker of the House of Representatives, currently Nancy Pelosi. The full details are here.

Not quite sure I see the link between "the worst happens" and "they BOTH pass away", by the way.

I went to Sweden yesterday, on business connected to the virus response.

Straight over the border into Sweden, with its open restaurants. A quick check as I returned (I spoke in Danish and was clearly on business), but no check into what my business was. Very straight forward.

11 secret service agents currently have it too.

 

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Well my sister's fella is making very small steps in the right direction.

From being described as as near to death without being dead, he's now sat up, off dialysis and yesterday was breathing on his own for 2½ hours...

His trachy I believe is closed and was able to say hello yesterday. His first word since 2/4/20.

I'm naturally a cautious soul. I think he'll make it. I didn't give him a chance of survival 3 weeks ago....

Rehab however, will be a long process

It's been traumatic for my sister bless her. Her life story is something else....

I thought he was a goner three weeks ago... but a decent consultant persevered and pushed the trachy option.... his hunch, up to now at least, appears to have worked.

Most know what I do. My work is nowt compared to those on that unit.... which is replicated in abundance up and down the country.

Band 5 or 6 nurses on those units just seem underpaid to me given the skill set, academic requirements, attitudinal approach and ability to provide an immediate response in an emergency and co-ordinate that response.....

The CPBL is now allowing very small crowds into their stadiums who then have to follow rigid social distancing rules. This is what it looks like. I hope no one in the middle needs the loo.

25 Us police officers murdered this year so far, 26 have also died of covid.  Apparently first time in a long time that shooting/stabbing of Us law enforcement officers as the major cause of death has as been eclipsed by something else.

is it really an essential journey to get in your car and go to one of these car washes, hand over a ten pound note, get back 4 pound coins that have been handled by the guy who takes the money and the previous customer at least?

NHS England are the providers, Public Health are the Preventers, ask CKN.

Not sure if this refers to the demonstration against lockdown posted on here a few days ago? From BBC Live

The protesters who gathered in central London were emotional. Many were angry and distrustful of the police, government and media - although most were polite when I spoke to them.

They had placards and leaflets detailing a wide range of conspiracy theories - their targets included 5G technology, Bill Gates and vaccinations. Some clustered in front of our camera and joined arms in defiance of social distancing.

Small groups of up to 40 or 50 people gathered at various points in the capital in the morning.

Our team saw arrests in St James’s Park, near the Accident and Emergency department of St Thomas’ Hospital, and outside the Houses of Parliament. The Metropolitan Police reported 14 arrests.

A police statement said: “Despite repeated attempts by officers to engage with the group, explain the current restrictions and encourage them to go home a number refused to leave.”
