I always though the data showing transmission in pubs and restaurants was so low a bit suspect. It just seemed completely at odds with reality.

 

That's really dog shit. Would like to know what's gone wrong- folk will have been infected.

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

My uncle lost his battle to this in Royal Bolton this morning, so he will be one of today’s numbers.  last rites over the phone held by a nurse with no family there. made an exception yester

I’ve sat with my mum who is slipping away, literally breathing her last today. She idolises the Queen, and whilst she didn’t in all likelihood hear that, I know she would have loved every single

I'm going to Sark (Near Guernsey) last week in May, flights and ferries booked. Obviously classed as the UK, I'm hopeful.

At present, haven't the Channel Islands banned any tourists (even UK based ones) from traveling over there?

Flights are running, ferries were announced last week, full service (3 times a day) from mid-May. We are booked on, with the island ferry service now on, we feel tourists could be back over soon, however Sark has a population of just over 400, I wouldn't want us over.

But we haven't got the go ahead yet, I've booked with a mate who goes over there a lot and he is optimistic, I'm around 25% it will happen.

If these infection rates keep dropping you never know, but I'm now a bit sceptical because schools are mass testing from next week, I envisage an increase in infection numbers.

You would expect that'll see a huge leap in infections, but you never know. 

I've always fancied Sark, it looks ace

Booked last year...lockdown happened. I've never been and was really looking forward to it. Luckily as soon as flights were on sale back in November, we booked straight away whilst prices were still reasonable. Carried the Cottage over to this year, they gave us the same price. All with refunds if it goes tits up again.

Also recieved emails from various French campsites and the channel tunnel for bookings from March 31st and will give refunds if covid stops us from going, that to me seems like things are going to get back to normal att some point, I generally go in mid-July, so I'm hopeful 🤞

Traf is the best person for advice on all this, but I bet the lads inundated.

Mrs went for hers at bealeys in Radcliffe the nurse said some folk were walking out when told it was the AstraZeneca jab wtf!

Also to use stock up for missed appointments (which apparently happens most days) they more or less try and get hold of anyone who’s available to come down

@DazBob can you ask your mrs if she agrees with this please and that pubs and restaurants data weren’t used for track and trace? 
 

i know for a BOOMFACT that a pub near me that had an outbreak via a member of staff did go through track and trace. But maybe an exception?

She'd not know one way or another. She was just given the details of someone to ring and then as a result of the conversation she'd submit a list of places they'd been and people they'd been in contact with.

So if they'd been in a pub that would be noted, but whether that anything was done with that information she'd not know.

We've one older person who has been working at home throughout who refused to have her jab because it was the AZ one, and they've said all along they wouldn't come back in without being vaccinated.

I don't get it? What is their reasoning for not having the AZ one?

When Bolton was shut and Salford was open I called in 'Spoons Walkden. They had the Track and trace app thing to sign in on your phone. Which I did. They also had a young seven stone female bar staff member on the door asking people to sign in. Just before me some lads went in mob-handed and only one signing in. Now, if the one who was signing gave his real name it's a start, but the number of Mickey Mouses and Donald Ducks signed in must have been  phenomenal.

My mate had Covid in January, was rough but kept out of hospital went for AZ jab on Thursday said he’s been rough as fuck since he’s pretty fit lad, said he’s never felt so bad. Apparently if you’ve had covid the jab can make you poorly again.
