The rules and data you need to know
Great work on cutting through the noise on this, Joshi.
I think it s will be easier in some ways because less students will be in this group but yea protocol will have to change plus I won t be able to get close with residents as regular semesters @Aya Halwah
So....these figures are positive tests per 100,000 population, ok, how does that account for differences in testing rates? It seems if you had more tests done one week the rate of positives would naturally increase.
This strike me as a response to the up coming mass gatherings for Eid and nowt else. I have absolutely no faith in these figures the criteria used for their selection, the way they are gathered and the conclusions drawn from them. mind you at 76 I am cynical of all political propaganda and alarmist crap.
The new restrictions are like a sledgehammer to crack a nut. Only certain people in certain households are breaking the rules - and we all know who they are!!- the majority/the rest of us have been sticking to the rules, however onerous they have been. Why does a minority have to spoil it for the majority?
Still no definitive word from anyone as to whether you can meet people outside your household in pub gardens.
