‘There are eight million stories in the naked city. This has been one of them’

How the Herald sees the city it once represented.

A story, it might once have told:

The Covid-19 death rate in Greater Manchester is THREE times higher than in the Glasgow area.

There has been a total of 430 deaths in Glasgow, the two Lanarkshires, the two Dunbartonshires and the two Renfrewhires from Covid-19 since the pandemic began:

In Greater Manchester, there have been 2 153 deaths since the pandemic began:

There are 1.7 million living in Glasgow and the surrounding six areas, above. There are 2.8 million living in Greater Manchester.

The death rate in the Glasgow area is 1 in 39 500 and in Greater Manchester it is 1 in 13 000.

The Covid-19 death rate in Greater Manchester is THREE times higher than in the Glasgow area.

There’s a story.

  1. Another context-free rabid Brit Nat propagandist outlet.

    The story never covered is the decline of journalism in Scotland.
    They see the mote ( exaggerate, magnify and hype it up), but never the beam.

    What they don’t realise is, that the secret funding they get from the British State will disappear, whatever the result of indyref2—but if we get independence these creeps will never get a thank you from the Scots.

    1. Scottish Unis started earlier (at least one week, sometimes two) so infections have had longer to build. I suspect the C-19 rates at Universities will accelerate over the next few weeks.
