UK records highest-ever daily number of Covid-19 infections

Rampant: the Covid-19 virus is reaching heights of infection not seen before in the UK.

So much for all the work you put in to send Covid-19 packing from March onwards.

Thanks to the bumbling incoherence of a part-time prime minister (and full-time performing monkey), and the inanities of his incompetent cronies, it was all for nothing.

On September 24 – today at the time of writing – the UK recorded its highest-ever daily number of Covid-19 infections: 6,634.

A further 40 people are reported to have died – the highest number since July 14.

It will be scant comfort to hear that researchers reckon the number of new infections is still much lower than at the height of the lockdown.

They reckon there were 100,000 new cases a day – but this only flags up Johnson’s utter incompetence; at that time he had halted all efforts at testing for the disease and tracing people who had contacted carriers.

Oh – and the number of infections in schools is still rising, too:

Put it all together and it seems the best that can be said is this:

All our efforts to beat Covid-19 in the spring have only served to worsen the annual winter NHS crisis, adding the virus to the stresses on a service that the Tories have underfunded, understaffed, and hived off to useless privately-run cowboy firms.

    The infection rate increase has been robustly challenged as being overstated by alternative scientists not in the Governments payroll or had conflicts of interests. This infection increase is being suggested as a means for Government population control and draconian next steps for a Right Wing takeover. Alternative science from several sources claim the current testing is far from accurate and has a very high accuracy failure rate some quoted as high as 90%. The testing issue is whilst there are very positive cases high infection rates with danger to themselves and others there are also extremely low positives, not harmful, coaxed out as a by product of the test amplification times for previous/past infection episodes. If the Government is to carry on declaring the infection rates they should be made to add simple infection risk indicator that would stop some of their fear frenzy data obsession. Now we have the extra Apple and Google mobile warning system to add to the fear even more reason to use the best most accurate infection risk ratings. We do not need to be put into quarantine from just getting close to someone who still had a few residual infection traces from long ago and no threat to the population. The fact the favoured outsourced track ‘n trace being generously rewarded for their failures would not influence their integrity in ensuring their outputs were completely accurate and independent. As per their previous record in this area.

    If the headlines were – “Yet another Arriva single decker bus explodes with no survivors” – Government says “At least it’s not a double decker”.maybe it would get some attention.

    These are precious human lives, someone’s loved ones not just a statistic on a Covid Balance Sheet but we are expected to simply shrug it off and carry on.
