The USA Professor from Edinburgh University is on fire today and as she sits at the heart of Scottish 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 decision making through the scientific advisory committee she gives a good summary of where she thinks we are.

She Identifies the inherent weakness in any Scottish🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 strategy though in that Scotland can't protect it own borders.😣.

Once the USA flights begin arriving again and English 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 and European camper vans and caravans flow north then it becomes a lottery as how can you test and trace system cope with that.😣

See chart above. We really need to make the "Consistent with Phase 2 accommodation can be provided for those required to stay away from home for work purposes." stick. That looks like keeping tourists out.

However, as you say, with the tourism industry told to get set for 15th July any attempt at the virus we've kept to ourselves looks doomed to fail.

Watching CNN where they are reporting that yesterday there were increases in Coronavirus cases in 23 US States. Not so good.

R number will inevitably go up here as well as lockdown restrictions are eased...it's how countries deal with it that will matter.
Still can't believe they are easing restrictions in England and likely reducing the social distancing to a metre without a proper Test and Trace system in place. Hopefully the cautious and more organised approach to easing the lockdown in Scotland will help us to keep the virus under control in the weeks and months ahead.

And today in the the land of the free......6 of Trumpets campaign team test positive ahead of the 10000 strong rally in Tulsa.
They've been isolated and there is no threat to anyone attending.......says one of Trumps advisors.
But everyone there is being asked to waive their right to sue Trump if they catch Coronavirus.
I'm certain that has reassured many, if not all the brain dead fuckwits who will be there.
Some will take their AR 15, or Glock 17 with them to ensure the virus gets the message.

Hallelujah brothers & sisters.

This is pretty detailed if you want recent local stats.

The USA professor is certainly getting streetwise as to how politics in England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 and the USA 🇺🇸 really work.🤔

This is a highly contagious virus which thrives in cold and damp temperatures and the summer should be the time governments put in place the track, trace and isolate measures to counteract this.

Winter and the doubling with the annual flu outbreak will show how successful this has been though I think the calculation now is that as the NHS is beefed up then lets just see what happens.

Mass testing is the only way to control this virus successfully IMO. It needs to be massively ramped up everywhere before the winter.
We should have testing stations all over every major city in the UK..in GP surgeries, health centres, clinics etc
My understanding in Edinburgh at the moment is that when you book a test if you show symptoms you have to go out to the airport to get the test done ? Not exactly convenient especially for over 70's.

While I agree there should be mass testing I still think that should be targeted. I'd start with front line services being regularly tested, those scooped up by the track and trace then anyone engaging with the NHS but I'm not sure how that would work. I'm not sure what the capacity is beyond that.

There was a testing centre early doors at the Western (hospital not pub!). Has that closed? Not expecting you to know @Greenmachine anyone can answer :)) . However I'd remind you and anyone else that mind need it that testing kits are available through the post.

This is closed, NHS staff go to Chalmers now according to the missus

Watched the splendid Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN as I do most days at 1.00 am.

I thought I would share his comments on the lunatic that is the most powerful individual on the planet, regarding Covid 19. Jesus wept.

Johnson/Cummings couldnae be getting the idea of no longer having daily briefings, as announced yesterday from their big pal by any chance?
