Other Tories are saying it’s a job for the benefits system. So it’s clearly nothing to do with state dependency. It’s because you can’t see this is the right thing to do.

For lols I’d like Starmer to ask how we get out of Tier 1 to less restrictions. Clearly wouldn’t be happening soon but there’s also no sign how that happens either. Whole tier system is a shambles.

I dunno, it’s not clear from gov what the purpose of airport testing is here. Seems like it’s intended to encourage more air travel rather than to identify infections. Unless they chase up arrivals who are isolating I could see it having a negative effect instead.

Government doesn't want to spend the money to pay them to stay shut?

Where's the evidence for the seasonality you talk about when the virus has only been around for - checks calendar - three seasons?

Look at what they’re actually doing though. It’s pretty much been England’s Tier 1 without masks throughout. But that’s the only message so there’s no confusion and the public listen. Problem is the HI brigade think Sweden is all normality which just isn’t the case.

How do you treat the heart failure patients if the staff are busy with Covid patients?

"how do we do that without all being stuck in our homes" is what was said. Pay attention. Noone wants indefinite lockdown.

Yeah if they’re asked a week back that makes total sense. For some reason I’d thought it was only 48 hours before symptoms that were asked about.

This is a complete guess but is there a chance the T&T set-up understates the amount of transmission in hospitality? Like most folk would go to a pub/restaurant at the weekend but not get symptoms til say Wednesday. Would they even be asked about that pub trip?

The major advantage that New Zealand had in beating was not distance, or population size, but a leader in Jacinda Ardern who was unwilling to take chances with the health of the nation

Yeah that’s all sensible to me. I think it assumes the hosts are smart enough not to let too many hosts die off though 😅

Seems like the safer bet then is to assume Covid will mutate so we would have less cross-immunity? I don’t understand the assumption by the HI crowd that it just won’t. Then again the thought of Covid mutating each year is petty horrifying 😅

Maybe? If you’re right then that makes Covid & colds not the same, which is the opposite of what the “there’s already mass immunity” lot are saying. Seems like they’re just cherry-picking what similarities/differences they want to when it suits.

Maybe we should ignore the same people now who seem to be content with millions of people contracting a potentially fatal and long-lasting disease. Just a thought.

Remember back in May/June when a lot of airtime was given to views like “half of us are immune now” and “there’s no chance of a second wave” - things that are clearly now completely wrong.

That logic only works if you prevent travel from high to low prevalence areas. Is that really going to be enforced? Doubtful. That’s why more strict national measures are being recommended by SAGE.

I’d be careful what we wish for. Almost guaranteed that if they did say anything on T&T money it’d be “test and trace has been a failure so we shouldn’t spend any more money on it”, which isn’t helpful either.
