So the latest variant is worrying n there’s a race against time to track the 3rd person.


Whilst I don’t doubt that there is a new variant why can’t the press allow a few “good” headlines ...

As always press is looking to sensationalise anything bad

to be fair the speakers at the English briefing tonight mentioned it several times
There's lots of variants.
It's because they do not want the plebs to become too complacent. There's lots of good news - infections are at their lowest since September and so are deaths. Daily admissions to hospital are down to around a thousand (compared to over 4,000 at times in January); the number of people in hospital is down to around 14,000 (almost 40,000 in January). The vaccines have shown to be very effective. But you can't be too careful. And many businesses will have to wait more than two months before they can begin to make any money (by which time many of them will have turned it in).
I don't understand why they can't just check the airline's list of passengers coming from Brazil on the relevant date? Am I missing something?

I thought that’s what they’ve done? and that they’re making contact with them ?
It isn't known if the outstanding person has even travelled, they took a home test in February and did not complete the form.

Yes you are.

(1) The flights did not come directly from Brazil.
(2) The only information the authorities have is that provided by the passengers. The one who is untraced did not complete his "passenger locator form" correctly. That's the offence for which Mr Hancock suggested ten year prison sentences would be imposed. So whoever didn't complete their form properly is hardly likely to be forthcoming.
