    That sounds about right - M.E.N. reporting has seen better days

    'The Guardian'
    Greater Manchester police issued more than 100 fixed penalty notices for Covid regulation breaches during a busy night for the force.
    The incidents included a rave at a building in an industrial estate in Wigan, several house parties across the * Greater Manchester * area, and a pub in Stockport that breached tier 4 rules by continuing to serve customers.
    Chris Sykes, the assistant chief constable of Greater Manchester police, said: ā€œIā€™m sure the right-thinking majority of our residents will join me in condemning this irresponsible behaviour, which puts lives at risk.ā€

    Not to be a conspiracy theorist, but .....
    [​IMG]
    Some of these percentage rises (51%, 65%) seem ... questionable
    The M.E.N. Headline:-
    "These are the latest coronavirus infection rates across Greater Manchester..
    A) - Our region has seen a 36% increase in cases week on week, and a sharper increase than England's
    B) - despite our overall rate still being lower than the national average"
    As the figure for England is 23%, how can we be lower?
    If the overall rate is over a longer period, then figures/results can depend on how long that period is, and down to the accuracy of recording and/or perceived reckoning
    Hmm Maths, the manipulation of numbers

    And -(finally) = Lockdown.:
    Provision of Vaccine is Key - One only hopes that Speed does not over-ride Safety provision.
    The hope is that it will work and that a roll-over is practically possible.
    With an estimated date of Mid/late Feb for initial roll out, (when a review will take place) there is a hope of better days ahead - though given that the (now not so new) strain of virus seems to be looking towards that of Crichtons novel, by that time - such a review itself, may need revising - one thing is certain - This, is far from over.
