And then Dido Harding saying nobody was expecting such demand for testing in September.

You really couldn't make it up!


Well, why would demand increase on the back of everyone now being back at work and down at their local, never mind the kids back at school.
As you say, you couldn't make it up ??

We're just RL fans with an interest in current affairs / politics, these guys are "experts".
I'm just glad that I dont employ anyone with their level of "expertise" :CRAZY: :CRAZY:

Thought it would be worth updating this as there is now a track and trace app that can be downloaded.
Still not comprehensive and it seems that you have to have a new iphone (May 2020) or relatively new smartphone and it doesn't work in 2 parts of Great Britain (Scotland and N. Ireland) but, it's certainly progress. Mind you it's still a long, long way from "World Beating".
Still, worth downloading and hopefully a step in the right direction

You'll have to explain which part is not true, please.
The I phone reference, is an update, opposed to a brand new handset but, apart from that, it's all good.

And, it's certainly still some way from "World beating"

Could be that the term Great Britain,which only refers to England,Scotland and Wales.
Or it could be the "it doesn't work" in Scotland/Northern Ireland,which reads like thats a problem with the app - which isn't true.

They do work individually but, this is not the case when you cross from say, England to Scotland or England to N. Ireland.
You can start again in the "new" country but, if your work / travel involves crossing the borders there is a problem.

Perhaps I should have gone into more detail with the original post.

Anything to say about the latest on our "world beating" test and trace debacle.
Not only have they missed 16,000 positive tests but, it seems that even if you live with someone who has downloaded the app and has tested positive, you are informed that you're still good to move around "freely".

Come on our kid, pick the fault with this one. :CRAZY:

The whole ****ing COVID response reliant on a spreadsheet created as xls rather than xlsx. Unbelievable.

This is not the first major issue with an Excel spreadsheet - sadly their use in high level projection outcomes is far too prevalent - a case of where a little knowledge is dangerous.

Are the NHS still using very old versions of Windows?
Your job is to say to yourself on a job interview does the hiring manager likes me or not. If you aren't a particular manager's cup of tea, you haven't failed -- you've dodged a bullet.
