First reported cases of CV-19 in my town. Apparently 5 people have been diagnosed in the last few days. Town's population is about 20k. So if I disappear suddenly, don't worry. I will probably have moved into a cave with no internet access. wink


 Oh no. Is this first cases this time around or were you lucky enough to escape from lockdown without any cases originally?


Previously the lock down did its job and we avoided any cases at all. So these are the first instances of the virus that we have had.

Restrictions on meeting in households being tightened up again in the North - Manchester, East Lancs and West Yorks.

"The spread is largely due to households meeting and not abiding to social distancing." according to Matt Hanc0ck.

 It is the same problem areas primarily, however Oldham has now expanded to Greater Manchester which is a concern.

My area of South Liverpool did see a spike in youngsters with cases, thought to be caught by meeting up in local woods. This seems to be under control, with virtually no cases again after targeted testing.

The vaccine contenders are:

Valneva: inactive full virus, std tech, not in human trials until end of the year

Sanidine-GSK: recombinant protein, moderately experimental using a single spike of the virus, fist phase trials this autumn and final results by next summer.

Oxford-AstraZeneca: adenovirus vector, moderately experimental, phase 2/3 trails underway results by end of the year.

Bio tech-Pfizer: tech mRNA, very experimental; based on tricking the body into making spike protein and producing Ab to fight it. Aiming for end of the year.

It's not known whether any of the vaccines will work, so good to have a wide range of mechanisms. #FollowtheScience

 How is  this consistent with the picture of all the people pictured on Brighton beach yesterday? You can' t see the sand for the number of people .

In the latest week to Friday of reported death figures :

The UK total was 442 ( 6.51 per million population ), averaging 63 per day - just down from 444 the previous week in line with the more general plateuing in the last few weeks of the general downward trend.

The USA total was 7704 ( 23.26 per million population ), averaging 1101 per day - up again from 6426 the previous week and about twice what it was 4 weeks ago.

The weekly 'leaders' continue to be from the Americas - in order Colombia, Bolivia, Peru, Panama, Brazil, Mexico - these 6 ranging ftom Colombia 42 per million population in the week to Mexico 32. These weekly rates are still much less than such as Italy, Spain and the UK were experiencing around their peaks but they are generally more consistent week to week without yet the signs of the clear peaking that came with major lockdowns in Europe.

Mexico should today go 3rd in absolute total reported death numbers from day 1, ahead of the UK and behind the USA and Brazil.

Just for Bob My brother and their family are on the way to one of the Spanish Islands and my sister's family travel to mainland Spain later this week. They understand the risks and quarantining is not an issue for either as they now work from home and the kids don't go back until after the quarantine period.

My partner got back into the UK fine this morning (he had to switch from a tier 5 working visa to a visitor one and it's can be tricky at the border - had a (not very fun) week away in Europe). I feel like Andy when he won at Wimbledon. So he can be here for 6 more months and by then we are hoping to have a bit more sorted out for me going to NZ.

 Well done, must be a relief and its horrible when you spend your flight worrying about the border crossing etc. 

 

Good luck with NZ! Fingers crossed for you both!

Good news, FW

I see that New Zealand continues to have a drip drip of new cases. 2 more today and currently 27 active cases. They do appear to keep track of active cases and move these to "recovered" when appropriate ( rather easier with 27 ) and it is a bit surprising ( and no doubt annoying ) that they haven't stopped that drip drip. No deaths though since they had renewed cases.

Thanks everyone!

Re: NZ, all cases are from coming back from outside of the county. They still have no community cases. Now they are set to charge people in some respects for quarantine and there has been some aggro from Kiwi's to "incomers" (meaning thise coming back) saying that those returning home are putting everyone at risk and undermining the sacrifice.

There has been a huge increase in interest re: moving to NZ, particularly from the US.
