Eradication -> getting rid of every case of COVID on the planet. Only possible in long-term w/vaccine. Elimination -> stopping community transmission within national borders. Imported cases will occur, but if identified quickly, can mean return to largely β€˜normal’ daily life.

These terms keep being used interchangeably- but they have distinct meanings. We have eliminated malaria & measles in many countries. We have not eradicated them.

The very opposite of the UK Gov approach which is based around culling and looting. And undermining Sturgeon, of course.

Yes! For those complaining about the short notice regarding Spain, folk should focus on why decisive action was required. We want children to return to schools next month, so minimise the risk of infection. Quarantine is better than infecting family, friends and workmates.

Like the cabinet, the people complaining are not scientists and do not understand the fast moving pace of transmission spikes.
