No COVID deaths for 24 hrs? 16:16 - Mar 7 with 1612 viewsMullet



Forgive me, as I've just seen it go up, but isn't that because they would or will be reported tomorrow?

While I'm not one for doom-mongering or the dismissive types either way, going back to the classroom tomorrow is making me anxious enough without misreporting. In the past month I've noticed people are slacker and slacker with following distancing and masks here.

Are we likely to see a corner turned now? I'm expecting the R rate to rise thanks to us reopening in this way right before Easter but I hope not. Certainly we'll need a bit of luck for things to go really well from what I've experienced.

Good luck Mullet. Back for me tomorrow too. Interesting to see if masks in the classroom can be sustained. At least we haven't been offered an insult of a pay rise eh! Stay safe mate.

You too mate. Are you enforcing everyone except the medically exempt wear them? DfE guidance is being interpreted that it's optional, something I'm raising. I'll be asking all pupils to wear them unless exempt or able to sit isolated and at the back of the room.

It's now on the BBC website.

But it's only Scotland that's had no deaths. Ninety in England.

Think the case numbers going up in the next fortnight is an inevitability with schools opening up (and also the introduction of greater mass testing at schools).

The question is whether that causes people to go to hospital or die I guess. One thing that may be of interest is whether we start seeing figures of vaccinated v non-vaccinated hospitalisations and deaths. Extreme example obviously, but be interesting to see if lockdown measures come in again if we see the numbers remain high in the part of the population who have been offered a jab but turned it down.

Exactly. With the vulnerable vaccinated case numbers aren’t as important. Focus will be on hospitalisations and deaths which should, in theory, continue to decrease.

Seems to me that at our place exempt means a note from home and you get a little blue badge for your tie. Kids must sit in the seating plan so couldn't move them. Glad I am no longer SLT level though.

Saw a friend, who’s a secondary school teacher, today when walking the dog who said out of 1000 LF tests they’d had returned, only one was positive, so hopefully it’s a similar level country wide

Good luck to you all tomorrow and thank you for all you do.
I’m still struggling with the concept that kids whose parents haven’t consented to a test are being allowed to go to school. It’s utter madness.
FWIW as you’re in the vanguard of ending lockdown, I think you should all have been offered a jab first. If teachers were known for voting Tory, you would have done.

Lateral flows seem to save remarkably low positive rates. I think it's something about viral load sensitivity.

I hate the Tories as much as the next man but can't bash them for prioritising the vaccine based on age group based risk.

I think Jake has it right above. I'm never making SLT judging by recent conversations!

Hopefully R rates are more favourable this time too.

These tests are notoriously unreliable compared to the ones you take through the NHS. I believe in the 60-70% range hence why they weren't rolled out previously. While that's better than nothing, with them being optional and based on prior experience I'd not put too much faith in them.

Particularly as we're not back yet which is when their effectiveness will be crucial.

I'd really like to know, out of the 15 million people or so who've had the vaccine for more than three weeks, how many have tested positive for covid and how many have been hospitalised or worse. Surely they should know that by now?

School testing has been going on in the past week before they go back, the data shows a record 992k tests were done on Thursday and with only 6.5k positives. So even though the cases plateaued instead of dropping, we are going to pick up lots of aymptomatic cases with the school testing, so the number of symptomatic cases will still be falling.

More importantly deaths are still plummeting.

There is some data on the first >1 million vaccines in Scotland. Its impressive considering the first million vaccines would have gone to very old people and its only 1 dose. Also immunity will continue to build after 3/4 weeks without the 2nd dose.

No, it's because they're not overly reliable, particularly in the hands of lay people.

We are enforcing unless exempt. Staggered return. Only students in tomorrow will be for testing.

As for the heading of the thread (I think it's been unpacked already and I know the data lags too) but I know someone who died with it in the past two days.

The return to schools is bound to increase the r, although testing should help to limit the size of the rise provided it doesn't lead to complacency from those who test negative.

And to make it worse, the official policy is a follow up negative PCR test is not allowed to override a potentially ‘false’ positive lateral flow test.

That’s the equivalent of the bloke on the street corner who once read google diagnosing something and it holding sway over a consultant

I wasn't aware of that.

EDIT: Just looked up the r.

0.7 to 0.9 in the UK and 0.6 to 0.8 in east of England.

Won't take much for it to go above 1 again.

First day since October that deaths have been below 100 (not forgetting the weekend figures are always lower too).

We are a long long way off 0 deaths unfortunately. I am facing classrooms of 70+ unvaccinated students in the not so distant future, so completely understand the anxiety. Good luck.
