Drakeford as usual trying to be clever. Yesterday he was tweeting that Wales test and trace system was contacting 94% of contacts. Yet Starmer was saying one of the reasons for a circuit breaker was to get a grip on the failing test and trace system. 😉

Which is it guys?
Unfortunately the way the Welsh create their figures for hospitalisations is similar to what they were doing in Scotland till a few weeks ago when scottish figures were reduced by 2/3's. I think off the top of my head they include
anyone who has ever had a positive covid test irrelevant if it was x months ago and they are in for cancer - which would seem to fit with them having 3 x figs for England.
~30 on ventilators and 400 in hospital a few days ago in Wales


& earlier in the year their ICU capacity seems too high to be full based on these numbers? but who knows

Tiers of Clown - The Brains Trust in charge of all this have no other weapons. Certainly not their intellect or vision.
The short notice at which they are shifting through these tiers is a bit ridiculous. Not giving the hospitality sector a chance to prepare. As if they didn't have it tough enough already.
