Close the borders 19:36 - Sep 18 with 3591 viewspennyfathersleg

Coronavirus numbers across Suffolk, Norfolk and Essex have actually fallen! Should we close our borders like they did in Australia?

I feel sorry for the budgies. They should be able to have 26,000 every home game because they are all related anyway.

Quite, so it’s not schools, as in terms of secondary schools alone there’s 390 in the east of England and 19 in Bolton but both ‘areas’ have about the same number of cases at present.

When france had this under control (back in June, before the summer holidays), they restricted people by banning travel more than 100km from home.

I'd certainly be happy to impose the "Vimto Line" , drawn roughly from the Wash to the Severn...

They then lifted it and case numbers are higher than here.

Keeping everyone in a tight lockdown forever is impossible; as soon as restrictions are lifted, even if only slightly, then case numbers will go up - the more they're released the more they'll go up.

The question is has the death rate increased in proportion to the increased rate of infection

or have the most vulnerable already passed on ?

Juvenile comment. A lot of the deaths were catch ups following a period of below expected levels of death being recorded.

The death rate will climb again as we go into winter as colder, damper conditions are more to the liking of the virus.

Maybe the prevalence was already higher in Bolton before they went back?

Once it takes hold here, I am sure schoolchildren, staff and our families will prove very effective vectors. And just because the published statistics show it is not prevalent here yet, doesn't mean it isn't already taking off. There are a lot of tests in the system involving those in Suffolk schools right now (assuming they are able to access the tests at all).

This is basically what has happened in Guernsey. Obviously it is easy to do for an island, but it works. Isolation strictly enforced for anyone arriving, with fines in the thousands of pounds for those not obeying quarantine.

There is an exceptional different mix of people in virtually all of the new lockdown areas than there is in Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex. It cannot be ignored (however it is by most of the main stream media)

UDI for East Anglia. P*ssed off that we may have national lockdown coming back when in truth some regions are keeping COVID at bay reasonably well. And some aren't.

This absolutely p15535 me off too, east Cambridgeshire which is the council that Ely falls under has 2-3 cases per 100k in the last week, that effectively means I’d have to meet all of the 20k people in Ely to even be remotely close to meeting someone who has the virus let alone someone who has it seriously!

Agreed! I think closing the borders, or at least monitoring them somehow, is something that should be seriously considered. Why should we be punished for following the rules and others don’t! However, it absolutely won’t!

I do worry though that we may be a week or so behind and that maybe people in these counties haven’t been able to access tests. I do think, that people seem to obey the rules in my part of the world. I haven’t seen many parties and the vast majority of people wear masks whenever I go out.

We are going to have an utterly catastrophic winter. If [redacted] is anything to by, then there's a LOT of pressure of beds right now. As in 'middle of January' pressure. That's only going to worsen. I am utterly, utterly dreading the clocks going back that signifies 'hello it's winter'.

I’m sure you right on this, you are not scaremongering as I suspect some will be thinking.

It doesn’t help that drive through testing in our area is virtually non existent. Only explanation I can come up with for being offered test in Kensington or Lewisham.
