Re: Coronavirus

Seems a difficult one to prove, that you can work from home. Hopefully its more to target employers forcing staff to come in when they could do the jobs remotely.

Tbh people shouldn't need any encouragement. Been an outbreak of Covid at my workplace amongst those in the office. No surprise, crammed in little ventilation hot desking , yaberring loudly about 'Strictly' or the Premier League, covids dream scenario....

Personally I think the Welsh government should be commended for banning people from talking about work in the pub.

Personally, I think the Welsh government should break out their uniforms and click their heels. Illogical laws are very bad laws.

Just say, your heatings broken, or your wifi wasn't working. Like I say, you'll be able to drive a bus through it.

Why would anyone want to when they can put their feet up and browse Cable Forum when their boss can’t see them?

Re: Coronavirus

Not sure what other countries are doing.

JCVI recommends Covid jabs for vulnerable children aged 5-11

The government’s vaccines watchdog has recommended Covid vaccinations should be extended to the most clinically vulnerable children aged five to 11, but could wait another month or more before extending them more widely.

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), which also announced the expansion of the booster programme to some younger teenagers, will for now only recommend vaccines for around 330,000 younger children.

This covers those in a clinical risk group, or live in a household without someone of any age who is immunosuppressed. They will be offered two doses of the Pfizer vaccine, with a gap of eight weeks.

106122 new cases.

140 deaths.

813 hospital admissions.

Cases up, deaths down slightly & admissions up slightly.

Re: Coronavirus

Capacity wise, admissions is not entirely useful without knowing how many are discharged.

You could have 1000 admissions, but it not be an issue if 2000 were discharged.
On the other hand, only 200 admissions is more of a problem, if none are discharged.

More importantly its the length of time they're in hospital.


20 people admitted and discharged the same day is much less serious than 1 person admitted and discharged 20 days later. But the stats would show the opposite.

Re: Coronavirus

Seems pretty harsh of the Welsh Government to fine employees who do not work from home where they can. Often, it's not employees who choose where they work, it's the employers. Employers have the responsibility to create a safe working environment and ensure that their employees work within the rules, not the other way around.

Not quite sure why they have taken this approach as it goes against standard health and safety practice
