    also;

    don't have fun
    don't have special hugs with people you don't live with
    don't visit the fam and kill them

    laughable really. i get primary and some secondary needing contact - i've got three nieces and nephews under 12 and remote learning, especially for the young ones isn't realistic, but for 15+...
    Yeah American universities tried this, but most have moved to remote courses by now. Impossible to tell 19 year olds to just live in their designated study-pod and not socialize. Complete waste of everyone's time and money
    ... and yet somehow we have a CFB season. Even with conferences initially announcing "Nope, not gonna happen this year" reversing their decision once the first few started to play (and earn that sweet TV money).

    To be fair, what's actually banned is couples who don't live together & aren't part of one of those support bubble things from going into each others houses. So basically what happened last lockdown.

    Is there data that says that schools spread the virus in the UK? Because it didn't in Germany. Every time they locked down schools or classes, they weren't the source for an outbreak.

    Not really, universities however are a different matter.
    Latest COVID surveilance report lists secondary schools as the largest source of outbreak clusters among educational settings (pg 18).
    Harvard also recokons that children are unclean - https://news.harvard.edu/gazette/sto...of-sars-cov-2/

    Meantime in ERG members have totally normal brains that aren't completely warped land, my local area recorded a new peak in covid cases this week, but not to worry, my MP was on the case:

    'I'm pro life. I'm a non-smoker. I'm a pro-life non-smoker. WOO, Let the party begin!'

    Just when you think you've seen the most punchable face a new, even more irresistibly punchable face appears.

    God, you could just punch that face all day, eat dinner and maybe have a quick shower, and then enjoy punching it all evening as well.

    Awwww yiss, I forgot how entertaining poppy nazis can be
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    My grandfathers built spitfires and served on the Mediterranean convoys respectively. That absolute bumcunt can go paint his perineum with fuming nitric acid for trying to claim their efforts fighting fascism.

    Also where the fuck were his kind when, after they'd done building spitfires and convoying food and oil, my grandfathers helped to fight the Five Giants?

    I can confirm he's a cunt of the highest order. He's an honest to god entirely unironic flag shagger and empire lover. He's the final evolution of all the Carling flag shaggers.

    Also, isn't there usually a cross-party agreement on when MPs start wearing them to avoid a ridiculous patriotism arms race?

    Why do I get the impression that the Venn diagram of people who refuse to wear masks and people who have a go at you for not wearing a poppy is basically a circle?

    You think a party that doesn't worry about breaking international law would worry about breaking a cross-party agreement?

    That is a funny, arguably misleading chart. It shows that there were outbreak clusters in 70-80 primary schools, 70-80 secondary schools and around 20 universities. Schools appear to be an important vector, but does that view change when you look at the number of institutions? There are approximately:
    * 16,000 primary schools - 0.5% outbreak rate
    * 3,500 secondary schools - 2.2% outbreak rate
    * 100 universities - 20% outbreak rate

    Excellent observation. That meshes well with the Finns PCR tests of school children.

    So in a shocking turn of events, the devil was in the details yet again?
    Ie stop closing schools, it hurt the kids and working parents...

    Always glad to know Europe is figuring all of the stuff on its own ignoring entirely things that worked elsewhere, just because we're so entirely up our asses.

    Classic scenes.

    Stop being 'le smug transplant'.

    South Korea went hard, early based on previous experience with SARS. Your home planet has little trade/tourism so has done 'alright' so far with few restrictions.
