No community spread in Tayside but Herald spreading panic just to get more advertising revenue

A ‘factory outbreak‘ does not mean a virus is spreading. ‘Community spread‘, as the name indicates means the virus is spreading.

Several times over the course of this pandemic, Professor Leitch has made the distinction clear, and today, the First Minister reinforced the view that although more than 2 000 workers in three connected factories in Coupar Angus have now been tested, there is ‘no evidence of community transmission‘ ie it has not ‘spread.’

  1. I don’t suppose the Herald will have spotted this –

    “Seventy homes, 43% of those surveyed, said they had received a patient discharged from hospital during March or April that had not been tested for the virus.”

    “A fifth said they had received a patient discharged from hospital who was Covid-19 positive.”

    “One in four homes said it was difficult to get hospital treatment for patients, while a third said they had had difficulty accessing GPs and district nurses.”

    “One nurse said: “The acute sector pushed us to take untested admissions.

    “The two weeks of daily deaths during an outbreak were possibly the two worst weeks of my 35-year nursing career.”

    Another reported being told to change the status of all the home’s residents to “do not resuscitate” but said staff had refused to comply.

    Crystal Oldman, chief executive of the QNI, said she was worried by the number of homes that had been unable to access support from GPs, district nurses and hospitals.”
