....and your point is?
Which begs the question "Why are people being denied travel to countries with lower infection rates than here?" Surely they'd do better spending a fortnight in Portugal (71 cases per million) or Cyprus (63) than here (107). In fact they'd be far better off to get away if they lived in Bradford (more than three times the England average) or even the St Ives area in Cornwall. That area has seen a severe spike in Covid cases following the totally unnecessary "G7" jamboree. This is hardly surprising since around 11,000 people gathered there or thereabouts for this ridiculous nonsense. Of course government ministers and officials from abroad are exempt from quarantine rules. Which just shows what a farce they are.

Isnt it mainly because they dont want us ? Anyway we dont want people from high risk areas congregating and queeuing for hours in our airports risking spreading it to others
Cases, so what?

It's the dead that matters and that is very low.
// Cases, so what? //

if the policy is "zero covid" (which is what it looks like), then it matters a great deal.
Has anyone admitted they are going for zero Covid?

Which as any sane person realises is impossible.
The rise in covid cases was really expected after Boris allowed 20,000 people to slip into Uk from India while he dilly dallied.
//Isnt it mainly because they dont want us//

No it isn’t. The foreign Office advises against all but essential travel to Amber and Red countries (apart from a few Greek and Spanish islands). That automatically voids almost all travel insurance policies meaning effectively you cannot travel. Whether they want us or not is immaterial.

//Anyway we dont want people from high risk areas congregating and queeuing for hours in our airports risking spreading it to others//

Who are “we” in this instance because it doesn’t include me.

It is interesting to note that the “Indian” variant has found its way into both Australia and New Zealand. Both these countries have probably the strictest border controls and quarantine regime of anywhere.

//Has anyone admitted they are going for zero Covid?//

I have been looking in a little detail at the figures used on Monday to continue restrictions. It is very interesting to see what we were not told rather than what we were. I am more and more convinced that Zero Covid is clearly the plan and the lunatics really have taken over running the asylum.
What were we not telt?
Cornish spike covid ?

after two police officers tested positive for the virus.

That area has seen a severe spike in Covid cases following the totally unnecessary "G7" jamboree.

oh god I dont have to look at the title head - it is AB on a hot afternoon
// t is interesting to note that the “Indian” variant has found its way into both Australia and New Zealand//

imported index cases from er Indian would you believe

all truth is to be found on AB
"Its interesting to note that the "Indian" variant has found its way into both Australia and New Zealand.
Erm,......Thought this post was about the UK .
//Thought this post was about the UK//

You suggested that the Prime Minister failed to keep new infections out as he dallied. I agree as it happens but locking down the border only delayed the inevitable. I was using the example of our Antipodean friends to illustrate that.
-- answer removed --
This does rather indicate that lockdowns don't work, does it not?
If things go to plan I would think that the new and exciting variant will be racing through France and the Low Countries any time soon. Germany next target all the way to Berlin just like before.
//This does rather indicate that lockdowns don't work, does it not?//

It at least indicates that they don't work if you allow thousands of air travellers into the lockdown area with no checks or trace regime.
Now is this really like for like when it comes to the method of counting and timing?

As to Cornwall, I quote from Monday.

More than 100 new cases of coronavirus have been reported in Cornwall in the latest 24-hour reporting period.

As world leaders and journalists departed the county on the final day of G7, June 13, Cornwall reported a spike in Covid-19 cases for a fourth day running.

Since Thursday, June 9, Cornwall has been reporting dozens of new cases each day - with 60 on June 9, 82 on June 10, 69 on Saturday, and another 106, yesterday.

In the last seven days, this puts the total at 373 cases - a 832 per cent increase on the previous seven day period.

After months of no Covid clusters, Cornwall now has ten areas reporting more than two cases in the same seven-day-period.

However, the cluster data is five days behind the data used for the daily cases, so will not reflect the latest figures.


The current clusters are as follows:

Towednack, Lelant and Carbis Bay: 4

St Ives and Halsetown: 6

Ponsanooth, Mabe Burnthouse and Constantine: 16

Newquay 13

Illogan and Portreath: 3

Grampound Road, St Newlyn East and Cubert: 3

Falmouth: 10

Bodmin: 3

However, despite the incredible increase in cases - there have been no deaths in the past seven days with coronavirus.

There have also been two, yes TWO, patients with Covid-19 hospitalised at Royal Cornwall Hospital.
Looks like Boris just got out in time then.
well, as long as you aren't coming down here, we'll be okay....Togo and Lady CG are on their way shortly!
