Makes you proud to be British, eh?  Leading Europe in the stats!

Covid-19: UK surpasses 60,000 deaths - BBC News

Led by a Buffoon!

80,000 according to GPs & the ONS and why would they lie?

Btw @faraway saint Belgium uses the above method to calculate the Covid death total that appears on your "apples & oranges" worldometer.

I just plucked that number, as you saw BtB, from our national news vendor.

I'll be convinced only when I see the data presented by Sage Indie in this afternoon's usual online session.

Independent SAGE | Following the Science

(Though I might have to miss some of the session as we're off into town for  a cultural thing, which tragically disnae involve movies or a pub...   but I will eventually get a drink... I've been promised.)

Only passing on what I have heard from a previously very reliable source in the hope it might help some buds with contingency planning-hopefully it will not come to pass but still entirely foreseeable that it will

as you said, the government is ploughing money in to make schools safe, they have also not ruled out any measure that may be required to effect greater control over the spread of infection. 

Might be time you reconsidered your "reliable source".

Passing on hearsay can always bite you in the arse.

Over in Switzerland, they have not introduced a lockdown in response to the “second wave” and restrictions have been light.

Yet “cases” have followed exactly the same trajectory as they have in the U.K. and any other country with heavy restrictions.

Absolute lunacy to think that the virus can be “controlled”

Meanwhile we continue to destroy the worldwide economy and continue to deny access to healthcare

Cases continue to drop quite dramatically, that's been around 3 weeks they have been dropping.

Deaths are very slightly dropping, fingers crossed they follow the cases with a similar reduction.

We could have zero cases, with transmission only happening between sheep on the Isle of Arran, and wee Nic will still have us all in tier 3.
