    We'll hit the limit on infections in about another 4 weeks, although if extra hygiene measures are in place, that might reduce the limit to around 30 million, and in 16 weeks time, with deaths reduced to under 1 million

    With that, and the 6 month window Dr Harris talked about, then someone could probably draw a graph to see what the figures might be.
    I’d suspect a reduction by a factor of about 9 compared to the figures for better hygiene through hand washing.
    Let's see how close these are.

    1.46 million with no measures
    <1 million with basic measures (hand washing)
    110,000 with current restrictions.

    His Home Secretary announced at one of last week's Covid-19 briefings that the government's policies on policing had successfully reduced shoplifting for April 2020 compared with April 2019.

    I look forward to your all knowing and likely sarcastic and unhelpful reply.

    Along with removal of brains in the Cabinet from the sounds of it.

    Anyway it's good to see that the Tory plans to get Care for the Elderly done are well underway.

    From today's Pritti good briefing:

    The chair of the home affairs committee, Yvette Cooper, said 130 countries had taken stricter approaches to the border than the UK, including Germany, New Zealand, South Korea, Italy, Singapore, Australia and Greece.
    and her answer:

    We are not similar to those countries, in terms of travellers and passenger flows. It’s a fact that the UK has one of the largest numbers of international arrivals, very different flows to some of the countries mentioned. That is a key consideration of Sage.
    Surely then, that is a pretty damn good reason to check international arrivals and quarantine them?
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.
