The old metal Dusnins in the 70's worked just fine!

Noisy though, and the lid never fitted properly.

The app is useless.

We have staff being told to isolate, as they were in classes on a different floor. They didn't even see the other member of staff.

My son went back to school last week after a student tested positive. Now a member of staff has tested positive and he maybe off again. Another period of isolation!

Is the app useless, or is it just that a shit load of people are getting the Rona at the moment. The app is the same as it was previously, the proliferation of pings (good band name that) is because of the proliferation of cases, not the app.

When do they finish, all broke up for summer up here last week.

finished Tuesday/Wednesday for the most part.

I know because both my sons and my teacher wife tell me constantly they are on holiday

"get a full time job" is not a wise response

I see cases are steadily declining now, we should be touching 70k according to all the doom and gloom models yet we are half that and had a 30% drop in cases in the last 7 days. Speaks volumes about the media that thereís very little coverage of what is very positive news instead they are  only wanting to focus on the negative constantly!

Fingers crossed it continues to fall, but the numbers now won't reflect the easing of restrictions on Monday just yet, right? Assuming it takes ~10 days or so to incubate, the next week or two will be crucial.

A bit odd that cases seem to be dropping and yet people pinged on the app continues to rise? Would expect those to be in line with each other.

But then the schools being out will probably largely negate that hopefully. The BBC for example are barely mentioning the reduction in cases, itís just irritating that unless itís negativity they donít want to report it.

was inevitable I suppose.

I assume though that it's a massively lower rate than last peak?

What we don't know is how many of them have been double vaccinated?

But then if cases continue to fall then by definition they will drop back down as well. It would just be nice to see a potential positive move downwards get the same coverage as the rises and doom and gloom. All we seem to get a attempts to put a negative slant on the fall from pathetic self proclaimed experts like independent sage who have been wrong throughout but still get National coverage.
