Half the coronavirus deaths per head of population, less Norovirus closures last winter, better staffing ratios, no care home inspection failures, and coronavirus assessment centres protecting GPs – what can the Herald staff do?
How about this? Gotcha Sturgeon!
In the Guardian today:
‘The tests will also be offered to the families of key workers, and it is expected that the devolved administrations will follow suit.’
But in the Herald only this:
Currently, Scotland is prioritising tests for NHS staff and has yet to announce any expansion of testing to key workers.
Neither asked this question and perhaps I’m being stupid here but, if this testing is so important, why is it only optional? Is it just to keep voters happy? Will the results make, as the FM seemed to be asserting, little difference to the key tactic of physical separation?
