Has anyone on here had a Test?
I had one today at 1pm then the Mrs had hers at 2pm at the Drive In at the local Hospital.
I guessed there might be a queue of cars when i got there but I was the only one there at 1pm, and the Mrs told me she was the only one there at 2pm.

The BBC said they are counted out as they have trouble counting them back in 🤷🏼‍♂️ At least the tests are ramping up and hopefully continue to do so.

I do wonder if they will be double counted, once when they are sent and then again in the figures are few days later once completed!?

And as the facts regarding how tests are counted come out it looks like the rules have been relaxed , the previous rules were , as soon as the test was completed in a lab it was counted ,
Now postal tests are counted , and apparently "they are in the post " honest ! as many as 50 000

The tests above 73k are arguably as important, being re-tests and a way of building some figures regarding recovered cases.
It does seem convenient that as deaths in hospitals have nose dived, the deaths from care homes have suddenly begun to be added so the charts and graphs from the media still scare the public into isolation.
Of today’s quoted hospital death total, only about 70 happened yesterday with 150 the previous day and the remainder going back to mid March.
Not taking away from the severity and care homes are obviously up against it, but there always appears to be some smoke and mirrors at play across the media. Simplest way to keep idiots indoors I suppose

I wonder how that percentage fits in comparison with the demographic in those professions...?

Each time I hear one of the politicians telling us with their sincerest voice that the virus 'doesn't discriminate' (usually because someone very wealthy or in Government - or both has caught it) I simply think - of course it doesn't, our society has done that job for it already...

maybe part immunity has built up over generations to exposure of similar viruses in ethnic groups before mass migration ????

Also a major point that has been forgotten , an unreliable test is worse than no test ,a phrase straight from Hancocks mouth , Shhh ! dont wake the clock !

122k tests but 27k of those are home tests that have been posted out and not actually happened yet, just hurriedly posted out so they can pat themselves on the back!

I'm sure I heard a stat the other day that 44% of doctors/consultants that have died with COVID-19 are black/ asian. Totally out of proportion to the population demographics. Can't see those living in cramped overcrowded conditions.

Copied directly off the government website , not off spankwire or godisgood etc etc , not hyperbole , as much as we can trust em , not everything is a conspiracy etc etc etc BONG BONG BONG , here goes !

As of 9am on 1 May, there have been 1,023,824 tests, with 122,347 tests on 30 April.

762,279 people have been tested, of whom 177,454 have tested positive.

As of 5pm on 30 April, of those who tested positive for coronavirus in the UK, 27,510 have died. This new figure includes deaths in all settings, not just in hospitals. The equivalent figure under the old measure would have been 23,229.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Tests,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, People tested,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Positive,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Deaths
Daily,,,,,,,,122,347,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,73,191 ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, 6201,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, 739
Total,,,,,,,,1 023 824 ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, 762,279,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, 177,454 ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,27,510

make of them what you want to ! 73 191 have been tested yesterday not 100 000 , i am impressed that we have managed this achieved in a relatively short time span although it's a month overdue ! and not quite the 250 000 that Boris the gobshi*e promised weeks ago !

Todays huge revelation is that the virus has a greater effect on those living in more deprived areas.

As David Byrne might say... 'Same as it ever was..'
