The reason that infection rates have suddenly skyrocketed is, as many of us predicted at the time, because schools and colleges have remained open.
It is utterly pointless in locking down the parents whilst sending the kids on a ‘spread dribble, spit and snot’ expedition.
The sudden increase yesterday to over 50,000, when it was running at fairly steady 20,000 per day, isn’t people infected yesterday, it’s people infected two-plus weeks ago when all the millions of little kids were busily meeting at school, wiping their noses with their fingers, not washing their hands after a widdle, sucking communal pens and pencils and for the lucky ones, having a furtive snog behind the bike sheds.
Locking down the adults in increasingly restrictive tiers is ridiculous when half the families in the town are intermixing bodily fluids on a daily basis via their children.
If you wanted to infect a population, introducing the virus to the schools initially would be the way to go.
From the Biased Bame Corporation
“What happens if a pupil tests positive for coronavirus?
If someone tests positive, they must be sent home to self-isolate for 10 days.
The school must then contact their local public health protection team, who will advise on who else should be sent home.
Anyone who has been in close contact with the person testing positive must self-isolate”.
Last paragraph....one kid is found to be positive (which they will PDQ), the whole class at least will have to go home (to infect their own family).
