That was one of the loveliest things to ever happen. Stood in my garden sobbing like a baby! Proud to work for the NHS 👏👏👏👏❤️

I notice he sneaked in a mention of using the military if required.

@Cheese will be delighted.

Mad to chuck the word military in there with no qualification or explanation to it. Leaves it open to be interpreted as anything from materiel support to fucking martial law!

Doors locked at 10 not last orders 

They'll be locked for 10 weeks around here.

At least the schools are open. Gives us a fighting chance of avoiding a depression.

Just had a message from school that someone in my daughters' year has tested positive. Any pupils who've been in close contact with the person has to self-isolate for 14 days. Out of 130-odd kids, nobody has come forward yet, so either billy-no-mates has caught the virus, or none of them fancy spending another fortnight festering in their pits.

Your daughter must be in her 60's, what's she still doing at school  😏

He said on PMQ’s that if the rates allow it then of course the rules will change before 6 months

I can't see them changing this now until after christmas.

Simply because they don't trust the public to behave and quite honestly they're probably right.

Non-mask wearers (expemptions notwithstanding) should now be barred from shops full stop.

he said he would review it didn’t he?  
 

take that in context that we got locked down for 3 weeks to be reviewed and spent 3 months.

I agree, sadly.

 

Going to be a long dark winter this one

They need some sort of mobile testing units that can rock up a schools and test entire bubbles if a kid gets it. 

My nipper is home for 2 weeks at the minute, Year 11.

Telling 300 kids to self isolate is dogshit

Johnson is asked to explain why the government is bringing in the 22:00 curfew for pubs and restaurants.

The PM says that the government has seen evidence that transmission "does tend to happen later at night after more alcohol has been consumed".

He says that introducing the limit on serving time is "one way of driving down the R number without doing [excessive] economic damage".

haha, would love to see that kind of data

what a clueless set of idiots

they exist - cost £40k each - the problem is, if you have the test too early, it doesn't work.

Both badly dressed as well, oversized suits, tie all over the place, they looked well out of place, and Boris definitely threw them out there. They looked like Bert and Ernie.

I think they both do perfectly well. I like listening to them and the science behind them. I find Whitty's uncompromising pragmatism pleasing because he's not going to bend to those with agendas or with a penchant for a good moan.

Doggedly utilising the knowledge base, science, experience etc to deal with what we have.

It will be the teachers getting ill that closes schools. 

 

Teachings hard, atm it's been made even more difficult as it all has to be done from the front, no moving round, no checking work, and no marking..

However every lesson has to be put online with a corresponding video and made self teaching for isolating kids.

And the kids just don't get it.. they all think it's just a cold. 

 

Back to the original point by Cheese, the school has to identify who has been sat next to the positive case. 

more than a minute within one meter more than 20 mins within 2, outside doesn't really count. 

It takes time to look at seating plans and identify firstly which kids have been next to them, and then within 2 meters. Probably be about 50 kids that have to isolate, unless they can't track seating plans in which case it's the year group.

though to be fair, lockdown will have left their holiday plans all shook up

I think there are a few suspicious minds as to the intent of the tourists

Perhaps a little less conversation is needed
