Just a few weeks to flatten the curve...

Said the "experts" about the lockdowns in March of 2019.

You’re intentionally omitting the part about everyone following the protocols out into place.

An estimated 1 in 50 people in England are currently infected based on the latest testing of a sample of the population by the Office for National Statistics.

And still many are wondering if they should wear a mask or go to Spain on holiday......

An estimated 1 in 50 people in England are currently infected based on the latest testing of a sample of the population by the Office for National Statistics.

That's using faulty PCR tests though.

What's very strange is that the NHS numbers for covid never match the government's numbers.

For example, if you look at week 51 here you can see there were about 50 cases. The government said there were tens of thousands. Same for every week, always much lower.

Very strange

It does look strange doesn't it? So strange I was compelled to try to understand what was going on with those NOIDs figures. You weren't? Took me a few seconds to find this Reuters fact check article that offers an explanation:

Can you elaborate on how PCR tests are faulty?

Keep up. Spain is not allowing U.K. citizens to enter the country, even those who live there have been turned back at immigration.

Spanish citizens and residents are exempt.

@zichi. There have been several reports of British citizens resident in Spain being denied entry. Spain in principle allows them entry, but border officials can make their own decisions. https://www.bbc.com/news/business-55530722

It did flatten the curve, and now it's the 2nd wave that was predicted by experts, so need to flatten the curve again

(How many of you doubted that there'd be a 2nd wave? But the experts are right - we're now in a 2nd or even 3rd wave)
