Scotland today:

As Scotland’s 7 day average for new covid infections per day falls to 14.6 and England’s sits stubbornly at more than 700 [5 times higher per head of population], Professor Sridhar has drawn our attention to the appalling official acceptance, on 20th May, of a figure of 1 000, approved by the UK Government’s Joint Biosecurity Centre.

She tweeted today:

The willingness to accept this level of infection with the death, trauma and longer-term suffering it brings, reveals the callous indifference of a ruling elite confident that the poor, the weak, and the disabled will suffer most.

The contrast with the achievement of the Scottish people and their government in driving the infection level toward zero and denying the virus victims could not be more sharp.
