We bring you this exclusive, breaking and shocking news, just emerging, that Covid infections in England have begun to surge well above those in Scotland, after the Euros, and as Boris recommends caution but bottles it on taking firm action.
With 10 times the population, England might b expected to have 10 times the number of cases but yesterday, had 21 times as many. On the previous day, there were approaching 20 times as many but before that the rate of infection in Scotland had been similar to that in England.
Those such as BBC Scotland, watching the 7 day average infection rates have either not spotted or do not want to comment on what is emerging.
Ten days ago, of course, when infection rates were higher in Scotland, that was front page news.
