    5 negative LFTs in a row now, my close contact positive has also had 5 negative LFTs in a row now. So maybe an older infection that he didn't spot, zero symptoms on his end. :shrug

    He should go at this point, but what I really don't want to happen is for him and other involved to resign and then we still have labour and the media banging on about it repeatedly. The country still needs running, get on with it.

    If he goes the front runners are supposedly Sunak and Truss, but I can see Hunt being a dark horse. Surely Patel wouldn't be considered? :eeek

    She wouldn't let you, her secret police would be at the border with guns keeping you in.

    It's weird. So many ways it can go when you think about it. And most of the guidance seems to be on the assumption symptoms have appeared.

    I was going to go round my friend's tonight but then we have a few important meetings lined up next week so I don't know.

    Something about that last sentence seems incredibly unbelievable.

    The last three words seem accurate.

    We're hovering around 20k positive cases per day but 3 days ago our chief medical officer said that a more realistic estimate of cases was maybe half a million cases in the previous week (about 3.5x the official numbers). We just don't have the testing volume to cover this wave.
    The graphs below show that the vaccine rollouts have had a noticeable impact on ICU and deaths during the Delta and Omicron waves.

    The Met have said they will decide to investigate based on the inquiry. I'll try telling a copper if I ever get done that my bird will hold an internal investigation before criminal action may proceed.

    I can understand this. We can't seriously expect the Metropolitan Police to conduct their own investigations into potential crimes, they've only got 33,000 police officers . . . :no:
