Perhaps just a victim of bad timing, Prof Chris Isles of Dumfries and Galloway, speaking yesterday on Good Morning Scotland, called for lock-down restrictions to be lifted in areas such as his:

We have had no new Covid positive cases throughout the region for the last eight days, no Covid positive cases in the hospital for the last five days and no Covid positive deaths for the last fortnight.

And, wait for it:

Prof Isles said his area had locked down and waited for a “tsunami of Covid positive admissions” which had not happened.

You’d think Isles would be aware, given his name, of the saying ‘No man is man is an island‘ and perhaps be able to apply the notion to his place of work?

No region next to an infected region is an island?

Why is the name ‘Pennington’ popping up in my mind?
