The how come the figures for the Isle of Wight and the end of may were 24 up 4 on the previous week, I’m guessing they went into “isolation” at home, or is this more spin from the NHS

Can’t believe this has to be explained lol but the Isle of Wight is a different thing to St Mary’s Hospital. These are figures that show the number of hospital admissions, you can have a positive result without needing to go in to the hospital.

Excellent news and a big thank you to all the people who has helped us get through this. One in the eye for all the covidiots who thought sticking their head in the sand and wishing it away was the way to do it. Lucky they were in the minority. Looks to be a good summer.

Well, so far so good, fingers crossed, I now understand that the Indian variant is rife on the mainland, but it is politically incorrect to name it in that term? (So maybe we should call it the native north American variant) So what do we call the south African and Brazilian strain? Or don’t they count? My uncle lives in Kent and he has no qualms of the virus Kent strain being named after his county as that is where it derives from, but we must not dare offend the woke community ! (PS keep up the good work NHS)
