This UK Government graph shared with me by a regular feeder of The Tusker who wishes to remain anon, inadvertently reveals the extent to which Scotland has repressed the virus and the failure in England & Wales to do the same.

The vertical scale of the graph to allow the full horror of our situation at the peak in April, as the Scottish Government began its tough lock-down to save lives, makes that clear.

Also, clear is the relative insignificance of the infection levels in Scotland thereafter as the numbers become too small to show and the worrying persistence of the infection in England and in Wales.
