Throughout COP26, 7-day incidence rate of diagnosed infection in Glasgow remained lowest in Scotland

Glasgow, the least infected? Nooooo!!!!

Two weeks ago:

Scottish Labour deputy leader, Jackie Baillie, accused him (Humza Yousaf) of having “no answers to the potential impact of Cop26 on our NHS.

“We are looking down the barrel at a winter of extreme pressure on our NHS and potentially surging levels of Covid.

“We need action from the Health Secretary to avoid this, not warm words.”

Scottish Lib Dem leader and health spokesman, Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP, warned: “The NHS is already overwhelmed, it will struggle to cope with the extra added pressure an event like COP26 will bring

Yesterday, we read:

Throughout the summit, the 7-day incidence rate of diagnosed infection in NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde remained the lowest of the mainland Scottish NHS Boards. In the recent 10 days, the incidence rate in Greater Glasgow and Clyde has increased gradually alongside most other mainland Scottish Boards.

How many times has Jackie Baillie made a fool of herself?

  1. O/T The BBC News website on its Scotland pages today has an article entitled: ‘Cancellation avalanche fears over vaccine passports’.

    Now it’s one thing for this ‘public service’ organisation to amplify the commercial concerns of a company, in this case the Signature group of pubs/restaurants, but this BBC article goes way beyond that.

    It gives a platform to a Ms McLean who ‘runs 20 bars’ to express her views not just on business concerns but also on public health matters – on the role of vaccination in the management of a pandemic and on virus transmission.

    I’m also obliged (!) to BBC Scotland for passing on this conclusion: “Ms Maclean believes pub and restaurant-goers WILL QUESTION THE POINT of vaccine certification.’ (my emphasis) Based on the public health knowledge she cites?

    On potential further government action aimed at suppressing the virus, Ms McLean asserts: “which it’s not going to do anyway.”

    Having failed to balance this ‘expert’ public health opinion from the Signature group with input from credible public health expertise within the same article, BBC Scotland goes further in its ‘public service’ by opening this article up to btl comments with some predictable results.

    1. “BBC Scotland goes further in its ‘public service’ by opening this article up to btl comments with some predictable results” – The BBC Scotland pages do not open “Comments” for intelligent debate but as adjunct to their propaganda pieces with more propaganda.

      You can see the same pattern with every article, if they (SO?) wish to promote it “Comments” are open and within seconds of publication the comments pile in seconds apart, in this case 10 in the first five minutes from 1525.

      Now figure on it being say a 5 – 10 minute read….

  2. Couldn’t see edit option so extra post.
    These unionist politicians don’t care about facts it’s about creating an impression helped by the media. So they don’t care because they’re never challenged. This site’s usefulness isn’t in challenging them as they’d never notice but in providing facts to challenge the nonsense when talking to people who have fallen for it and persuading them they are misled.
