Re: Coronavirus

It's not good to read this as where they got it. It's where people have been before they tested positive it - big difference - so places which people frequently go will be listed more.

Textbook for the schools cover up. Ask if parents have been to supermarket or hospitality in the last few days. Chalk it up as there.

Well, I wondered that. But only 1.2% of people have been in a household of 5 or fewer???

Re: Coronavirus

Oh goody, yet another set of misleading and meaningless numbers.
Quote:
PHE said the data did not prove where people were contracting coronavirus.
Quote:
By analysing the contacts and retracing the steps of the 128,808 people who'd reported they had tested positive between 9 November and 15 November, PHE data has uncovered the most frequent locations people with the virus had been, prior to testing positive.
If somebody from a "household fewer than five" takes a kid to "primary school" and then another to"nursery preschool", goes to a "restaurant or cafe", goes to work in a "warehouse", and also goes to a "supermarket" at some point, they are going to be in EACH of those six categories. It means 18.3% of those testing positive had visited a supermarket at some point in the previous days, but they also could've been visiting a gym.

What %age of the population go to the gym in the first place? As that is going to be low anyway, that implies a higher risk than the 1.1% figure for somebody who goes to a gym.


Why do the civil service keep insisting on releasing misleading and meaningless numbers that serve no purpose, other than to be misrepresented by others with a distorted agenda.

Which is the worse risk? Waitrose or Aldi?

The one with the higher number of white collars working from home is probably your lower risk.

Re: Coronavirus

I thought we were bad with the most deaths in Europe (53k), but the US now have over quarter of million !

Wonder how many of them were Trump supporting, none mask wearing, virus deniers ?

So a breakdown by ethnic group would support that biased nonsense claim?
