  1. Except the testing is currently being done centrally in Glasgow and Edinburgh nice try.
  2. Or you're coming around to hers. You're suggesting that these decisions are made by an SNP lead Scottish government rather than a dafty tory westminster government. Progress.
  3. That's not really what it showed. It showed it was less effective then hoped, but not useless. There are two things going on, one is reducing duration of viral shedding, the other is the viral load. No surprise that there were accusations of money not well spent as the pandemic failed to arrive, but why then was it so less severe here than it was in other countries that did not use Tamiflue?
  4. During the 2009 outbreak we had an effective treatment/prophylactic in Tamiflu which we proscribed by the bucket load. On it;s own, Tamiflu considerably reduced the secondary infection rate. We don't have a similar treatment for Covid-19 Additionally, Swineflu was not able to infect individuals asymptotically and was therefore much easier to detect, trace and isolate. We did have lockdown, but only for those infected.
  5. Not correct, the evidence is pretty clear.
  6. That's absolutely correct, if this was modelling (as may well have been in other circumstances) a sexually transmitted disease, we would know perfectly well that the population does not have a "uniform pairing rate" which is a basic assumption of most of these models. However, the model will be based on the average no of transmissions per person. It is difficult but not impossible to factor in non-uniform transmission rates and time dependent transmission rates, fairly easy, but the parameters you would use would be pure guess work. What the graphs do show is what is happening right now. And that is both important and useful for understanding what is going on and what steps we should be taking. It will also let us know when and if our measures are having an effect.
  7. The St Mirren V Hearts game was thee last domestic football game played in Scotland. I wonder if anyone who attended this game and has subsequently developed symptoms and /or have had a diagnosis could you respond to the survey below. All information will be treated in absolute confidence. https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/CD7LZ7Q A big thank you in advance for your help.
  8. Ok, this was the last domestic football game played in Scotland. I wonder if anyone who attended this game and has subsequently developed symptoms and /or have had a diagnosis could you respond to the survey below. All information will be treated in absolute confidence. https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/CD7LZ7Q A big thank you in advance for your help.
  9. Pinpointing the source and linking it to the workplace will be almost impossible. But showing negligence wouldn't
  10. To be perfectly frank, our response is not that much different. Arguably a bit slow in implementing various measures, but ultimately the measures are the same. The Imperial collage paper uses the worst case scenarios and compares two different timings of response. The only thing mildly controversial is a suggested delay in closing schools and universities which the universities and some local authorities'devolved administrations took out of Government hands anyway.
  11. Cerainly in your house 😃 But we did see a breaking of the ranks in advice given, I think it's fair to say the UK policy has been nudged at the very least by SG announcements.
  12. Absolutely, the difference between 200,000 and 1000 is huge. But either scenario is not insignificant. I think I will go a little baysian and say I am 95% certain there will be more than 1000 deaths.
