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

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’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

Bolton has gone from 19 cases a  couple of weeks ago to 133, the highest rate in the country,  Hancock said in Parliament it was due to 18-29 year olds going in pubs, if you want to believe that that’s ok.

If you think that’s a little unlikely form your own opinion 

Whilst not the only issue, how do you explain that cases of 19-25 year old are increasing rapidly, whilst going down in older groups? 

Its not just going into pubs, at that age you are out more and generally have a wider circle of friends and mix with more friends of friends. So whatever you are doing, you'll tend to be able to spread it further and faster. I know that Freshers Flu was definitely a thing at Uni - have of thw campus would be ill with a bug within a couple of weeks.

It's been closed completely??

I think its just his class - might even just be his 'bubble' as they all have a group of five kids who they can mix with in their class so make sure if there is one case they are not closing everything.

Never mind what we think and what our own opinions are.

Please share what your opinion/theory is.  You obviously have one, so spit it out.

A Whole yr, 200 kids, were sent home for a fortnight, from the school next door to the one my lads go to.

 A lad went in on Thursday and Friday, got symptoms over the weekend and tested positive.

Going to happen a lot for the next few months I fear.

What all this data doesn’t tell, and likely never will, is that all deaths with covid  was a covid death. Doctors were instructed that death due to Covid19 didn’t require autopsy and thus the chance to find a cause of death other than covid.

Many ‘newsworthy’ stories in the very early part of the pandemic in UK talked of 80 year old folk dying. One was 104 who died of Covid19 when admitted to hospital. It went down as a covid death. I mean, a 104 year old with or without the addition of Covid19 wasn’t going to live too much longer.

Now that this anomaly has been sorted it’s always going to skew the figures when comparing the then and now figures.

But the bit that’s not being made clear is that if your grandson has siblings then they shouldn’t be going to school either... 

or parents going to work.

isolation is for the household, not for the kid originally sent home.

or maybe I’ve got it wrong.

Comparisons of case fatality rate is only accurate if you know how many cases you have.

Everyone missed shit loads at the beginning.

The Covid symptom study run by ZOE, with 4 million participants reckons we had over 100k folk showing symptoms of infection,  per day at the peak, yet we were only capturing 6k at the time.

Nope. I thought this too, but reading the guidance thoroughly yesterday. 
 

The rule is, if someone in your household is self isolating due to contact with a positive case, the rest of the household doesn’t have to unless they develop symptoms or test positive. But social distancing and handwashing, cleaning of surface etc should be followed.

Breightmet way is fckin riddled

It's only accurate up to the 3rd too, so if the current trend continues, it'll be going up until the new restrictions kick in, if they're effective.

I was “Con’s” apprentice at Horwich Loco Works and we used our British Railways Privilege Pass for free travel to away games. He talked about this appearing on Sweeny. Fairly sure it was Oxford.

 

Yes & no. I'm pretty sure it was sprayed before a game at Fulham, an early kick off on a Friday meant that about the only Bolton fans there had travelled on the overnight National coach from Moor Lane......but we played at Oxford the following day & those who had been at Fulham, including Con, made our way straight to Oxford. 

iirc , we lost both games, it was bleeding freezing out on the Friday night & Bolton came unstuck trying to "take" the Oxford end. Happy days.

Has everybody got a invitation letter from Imperial College of London about being Covid tested for a research study? Or does the Illuminati want my mind , soul and body?

It's random. My son had one a few weeks ago. Mother in law just got one.

Sounds like a Con BWFC trip. 
We decided we were going to ‘take’ Bristol City’s end and were in the ground fairly early. I think there were maybe 6 to 8 of us right in the middle of their main terrace. As fans started appearing, they heard our dialect and stayed a distance away. Fortunately, the police noticed and took us round the ground just prior to KO
