Re: Coronavirus

Do the IATA limits apply to military aircraft?

Unlikely.

If it comes to it the RAF can be tasked with the job.

Good question! I have searched and haven't found anything. That said, the hazard from dry ice exists regardless of whether it's a civilian or military aircraft and lack of temperature control might be sticky when it comes to Good Distribution Practice (GDP) regulations.

Lots of regulatory hoops to jump through with pharmaceuticals! Certainly not insurmountable but need to be considered ahead of time...

More than 100k tested in Liverpool which is great news and national R-rate falls to 1.2.

Sage warns that infections will return to pre lockdown levels if tier system returns which is not so good news.

More than 100k tested in Liverpool . . . out of how many, and are the 'results' in yet (expecting USA election type figures)

Sage warning everybody again what 'might' happen, IMO the name SAGE doesn't fit

Just shy of half a million in the City of Liverpool council area itself, about 0.9 million in the “city region” (what we used to just call Merseyside).

I believe they have been offering these tests to those who work in the city as well, so their target figure if they want to get everyone has got to be a little over half a million.

Police halted a baptism service after about 30 worshippers gathered in breach of national lockdown restrictions.

Regan King, lead pastor at The Angel Church, Islington, defended his decision to hold the service, saying it served "the greater good".

The pastor agreed to hold a brief "socially distanced outdoor gathering in the church courtyard" after officers halted the service.

Four officers stood at the entrance stopping people from entering.

Under current restrictions weddings and baptisms are not allowed in England. Funerals can be attended by a maximum of 30 people.

Mr King, 28, said he wanted to hold the baptism as it was providing "an essential service".
He said: "We were told not to have a baptism and police began to block people from entering the church, so we decided to make other arrangements."

Asked why he had decided to breach the restrictions, Mr King said: "Because I believe we serve a greater good.
