TBF as I understand it, the process of parents being fined essentially starts with the school reporting an unauthorised absence so I suspect the scenario is unlikely to occur. It would take a particularly twisted school to report parents for not sending their kids to a school that isn't open! I know we've got a few teachers on here so please correct me if I've got this wrong

To be a pedant the process actually starts with a LEA having a fining policy/procedure in place, not all do.

Leicester locked down again. Going to be the first of many places I feel.
Do people in Leicester really give a fuck ??,   they'll just hop on a bus and go and drink in Derby or some other local town,  that's really going to help the 'containment'.

I think a lot of people in Leicester will feel justified in saying, what lockdown?  We're not doing what we're told if they don't do what they're told and they make the fucking rules.

Some good news - latest ONS stats show deaths in line with 5 year average from mid-June (i.e. no "excess" mortality). Let's hope it can be kept that way

Way beyond my pay grade, but to what extent could this relate to the weather i.e. as with flu does the virus not like hot weather?

Speaking to NHS working mate yesterday evening the next major problem starts in September when the Flu jabs start to be administered.

As far as I can gather, the jury is very much out on that. There was a lot of early talk that it would "magically disappear" once we got to warmer weather, but from what I've seen since no definitive proof either way and some very mixed evidence. Happy to be contradicted if it has been proven (as opposed to asserted)

The rate of infection in the Southern States of USA, India, Middle East etc. right now would suggest weather is not playing much of a part in this.   A layman's hunch from me would be the fact people pass this on when they show no symptoms means it's so efficient at transmission that the usual impact of heat/humidity is not a factor.  It also seems to stick around in the host for a very long time.

Swindon's numbers have always looked very odd.  The number of deaths was around 100 at some point with only 400 confirmed cases - which makes no sense whatsoever.  That reads to me as if they are only testing people sick enough to be hospitalised in Swindon.  The USA is providing a decent proof of concept for the UK right now - indoor bars have caused massive spikes here, as have big family get togethers - essentially, indoor gatherings are a pretty bad idea especially where you are not spread out.  If the UK can avoid that, get a proper testing, tracing and isolation policy in place (like NZ) then it has a chance to stem the flow now.  The USA took about 6-8 weeks to hit these new highs.
