The latest information from the Isle of Wight NHS Trust confirms 25 people have recovered from COVID-19 and have been discharged from hospital, although this number has not been updated in some time. It appears the NHS Trust are no longer issuing statements on each death.

The ‘lockdown’ is eased a little & we get a ‘small’ spike in new cases. Well, well, what a surprise…more ‘small’ spikes to follow I fear…

A five year old is now critically ill from catching CV. Do what YOU think is best, not what the political bigger picture to consider lot tell you is right.

YOU will have to live with the guilt if you make a mistake, NOT them.

What is this ‘lockdown’ you talk off?

I imagine this is probably due to the time lag between testing and results. It is also entirely possible that some if not all of the positives may only have mild symptoms. At this stage it is certainly not due to the slight lockdown easing.

Going to get worse now as west Wight beaches were busy with campers filling up carparks just like a summer weekend all a nightmare

Cycle track was so crowded today. Inches between one another. Some sneezing too, tried holding breath. Hope it was only hay fever. Keep away is my advice, or wear masks.

The new beds at hospital will be filled imo, before June is over.

I have reported neighbours twice to police for breaking vivid 19 rules on lockdown. What have they done NOTHING

Probably because they have been tasked with using common sense and are possibly overwhelmed with busy bodies reporting seeing people sitting quietly and harmlessly on a solitary park bench or on the beach minding their own business!

There was a large number of people on the seafront of St Helens Duver today with a barbeque and the car park contained several flat bed trucks. It turned out there was a meeting of Kayakers which for all intense and purposes looked an organised event,
The government said that we can now have a longer exercise time but it has still banned large gatherings.
These People thought it was alright to potentially spread the virus with little thought for their relatives, grandparents in particular, and anyone else they came into contact with.
I hope it was worth because if one of their number or friends goes down with covid-19 they will be able to say they were there and hopefully hang their heads in shame.

As one old lady told me in Asda. I’ve got the app it will beep when I go near someone who has had the virus. She now carries on as normal. FFS Wake up. Nobody can be that thick can they.

The sample size of test on this island is still too small to get any decent figures with.

Basically we still know bugger all.

On an unrelated note I have to say it is refreshing to see people finally waking up to this BS.

Why is the rate still increasing and not levelling yet ?
Where is the hotspot on the island ?

I’m aware my state education wasn’t the best and my math skills are poor, but I really don’t understand.
The government wants the ‘R’ rate to be below 0.7 % so containment is possible. IOW ‘R’ rate 125.1.% Our confirmed cases are average per 100,000 from what I see from other counties and graphs from around the world. Usually 100 for every 100,000 thousand population. Scientific data suggests containment rates are poor above 0.9% And the infection rate will continue to increase
As for the App. It doesn’t work properly, isn’t fit for person, is loaded with incorrect information and can’t be downloaded to the many because of compatibility. I would be very interested to know from all the downloads, how many were successfully installed. Check out the latest Beeb report. The whole response is a very poor and politically focused
I’m not buying any of it. And think folk need to be mindful what media they digest.
And on another note, Do people really think it’s ok to infect each other???
Does the IOW have some magical immunity because of numbers

Social distancing on the Island is non existent lately

I beg to differ – at least on the last sentence (you lost me after the first sentence) – “social distancing on the Island is non existent lately”. I am always noticing the respectful distance people generally keep from each other.
Or is that because I choose to go out in the evening to shop or walk when its quieter? Simples.

It probably depends on whereabouts you are on the Island. Certainly in Ryde it is not quieter in the evening, in fact late afternoon, early evening, seems even busier than early in the day, and even late at night there are
people about.
Some people will respectfully move aside and for that I am grateful, but many, sometimes the majority sadly, will not, and I am forever having to try and dodge people, you also get groups of people taking up all the space on the pavement and coming towards you en masse and won’t move aside, it sounds like you may live in a better area.

Well well, sky news, here are the liars ( government) excuses, i quote, “ if we have made mistakes, then it’s the scientists that have made those mistakes”. Ha ha. So predictable. That’s called pasting the buck I think! Oh ,and this is from the sheep people’s media, so I’m not spreading poison black rat.
