SAGE being ignored.....again?
at 15:27 29 May 2020

Prof John Edmunds, from the London School of Tropical Hygiene and Medicine, said that 8,000 new infections a day in England, as calculated by the Office for National Statistics, was “a very high incidence” level.

"Many of us would prefer to see incidence down to lower levels before we relax measures," he said.

He said that with an "untested" test and trace system "we are taking some risk here" and "even if we keep it flat, that’s still quite a level".

“Lifting the lockdown is a political decision. Lifting it now, means we’re keeping incidence at this level," he added.

I've never understood why this country classes 'shopping' as a past-time.

That aside, if the likes of M&S haven't realised that shopping habits have 'already' changed and would have continued to do so, corona virus aside, that might be why they are struggling.

Your online data is never...ever safe and no one gives a sh*t about it nor will properly ever enforce breaches.

Their highest number of cases in weeks.

Pleased that we haven't really changed or relaxed, gives us time to assess how others are doing and what we can learn from them.
