The person didn't properly register the home testing kit and I understand a huge forensic operation is underway to find the subject, who could be anywhere in the country - given that over two weeks have passed since the test result was 'orphaned'. The other results were found by genomic sequencing of randomly selected Covid-positive samples; there is also the possibility the subject is already dead.Thread drift.
It has been amusing to see or hear media reports about the person with a new strain of the virus who is missing and can’t be found.
While the person is missing, the media seem to be having trouble reporting where the person is believed to be.............as the county where the person is has also disappeared .
The area concerned used to be a county, but then became the unitary authority of Avon, then after 1996 became South Gloucestershire.
Living in an area that was in Somerset or Gloucestershire, then Avon and now South Glos certainly has its problems!
Ive heard that the person is in Gloucestershire in many reports, but of course that is a county, and a different area. If a journalist uses a search function for the address most returns will return ‘Avon’ even though Avon ceased to exist in ‘96.
Apologies for thread drift
