  1. The question is….have we stopped being shocked by these figures? And if so, what does that say about where we are – and where we’re going?

  2. Is the official today’s decision re Papdale school the best one? We the public don’t know the detailed nature of the outbreak there so it is not easy to answer the question. However I cannot understand that the most “affected class P6” is only being offered PCR testing – surely the pupils and staff should be isolated as well as receiving PCR tests. Am I getting this wrong? Admittedly it is the weekend and transmission at the school is on hold for two days – though not at home or out and about – let us see what happens next week. Restrictions just seem very light touch to a possible bigger outbreak.
