Coronavirus - general, non tennis related


And thats what you see ITU occupancy due to COVID 10% of previous peaks. In an area with very poor vaccine compliance compared to the rest of the U.K. Winter will be the test chuck in all the Upper Respiratory Tract Infections & capacity may well be stretched again.

Many of my colleagues who are under 30 have had Corona (all are at least single vaccinated) and a  common theme has been loss of sense of smell (and therefore taste). All have said it took a while to return hmm  Hope yours returns soon

While Corona cases are on the up in Scotland, government guinea pig Gove tests whether being fully vaccinated protects you from Corona whilst clubbing

Michael Gove has become an internet sensation after being filmed dancing at a late-night rave in Aberdeen

NZ numbers (we are still in level 4 lockdown until 11.59pm tonight, apart from Auckland which remains at that level until mid-Sept). We go down to level 3 (so everywhere is still closed* apart from click and collect food/drink/goods and deliveries can now happen).

26.2% - NZ pop. fully vaccinated

49.3% - NZ pop. with 1 or more doses
(% of eligible pop, 12+)


610 - cases active in community

*(supermarkets, corner shops, pharmacies and petrol stations have been open. The petrol stations are not allowed to sell hot food or coffee in level 4, as this is a big coffee country the outrage has been massive!)

That's super to hear about your daughter Jon! I think the enforced gap year can only do her good in the long run and we shouldn't be so quick to start university or working careers. Hope she has a wonderful holiday in Croatia and that you and your wife enjoy London/Bath!


 I think Croatia was a little crazy, hostelling around the place for a week or so. Edinburgh on Sunday now! How quickly does a year go??!

 Well, daughter went to Edinburgh yesterday and so far so good. World of difference generally - she has been able to do a few activities and events in her first 24 hours and generally things seem much more amenable to a) meeting people b) doing things in a new life and place and she is happy, it seems. 

I know some think being a student should be about the learning, but it is also about young people learning to live and be independent. So, so important. 

Fingers crossed and good start (although going up and getting there felt like GroundHog Day, with foreboding attached!)...

Good stuff Jon. Yes very much less restrictions generally in Scotland now though face coverings on public transport and in shops ( and theoretically when with others in other public enclosed spaces, ha ).

All the best.

Ok, this is anecdotal, and hardly PHE / WTO / Imperial College style but.....

In early/mid July, when I came to France, the infection rates were pretty similar - the UK's was a little higher but was coming down a touch (it had got up to over 40k per day but was down at 32k or something like that, whereas France's was on the up, at around 28k, say - basically near enough)

The vaccination rate in both countries is practically identical (although France has also rolled out boosters this month already to over 80s and now over 70s)

As of this month, the UK's daily case number is between 25k - 40k

The number in France is down to about 8k - 13k

More importantly, maybe, the hospitalisation rate is about double in the UK.

And all I can see is that masks are still mandatory here, in supermarkets, all shops, etc. etc.

And vaccine passes are needed for cafés, bars, restaurants etc. - and are being enforced.

I ain't no virologist but there might be a message there......

Don't read too much into the number of daily cases without comparing daily testing.

 That's why I put the hospitalisations number (which is double in the UK than that of France) as the more interesting (and quantifiable) number

Although tests are pretty high in France at the moment because they're free. This'll change this month.

I hear Boris has been musing that one thing might have to be the reintroduction of mandatory face coverings as a simple move to have quite a big effect. Indeed that pretty certainly would. Duh!

How many costly missmoves can this government make? And too many are to do with trying to read public attitudes rather than following the science. Think right back to the disastrous delay in implementing the first lockdown - that people might just grow tired of it all and not comply if it was introduced ( supposedly ) sooner than necessary. With the latest opening up face coverings were going to put folk off going places ( though many have said that no face coverings would deter them ),

Yes. Does he not realise that (a) his job is not to simply provide knee-jerk reactions to instant public opinion and (b) instant public opinion is partly under his control anyway, as a reflection of what, and how, the public are given the info from the government.

But, never fear, Dom Raab is now Deputy Prime Minister - all is saved...... no
