I think it’s impossible to say when they should start to relax any of the restrictions and I wouldn’t want to pick an arbitrary date such as the end of April.

I’m thinking it’s dependent on three things:

1) Very low levels of new cases (haven’t South Korea said they want less than 50 a day?)

2) Very high levels of testing. If enough people aren’t being tested then the level of new cases will be unreliable.

3) NHS is in a good a position as it can be (not sure what would mean though) in terms of capacity and resources in case it flares up again.

I agree with the criteria. However it shouldn't be new cases but hospital admissions or something as infection rates in this climate are a poor indicator due to induced demand with testing. 

But given the criteria and what the government are informing us of in terms of assets and how many can be produced per day or week in regards to the number of tests, peak dates, PPE provision, beds and temp hospitals, ventalators, etc, the end of April appears to be when the government are in a position to completely manage this crisis.

That's the key. We are adapting and will have to continue to adapt.

I wouldn't say quickly.  They did it in Ireland and more three weeks ago.

Would be interested to know how Kyle maintained social distancing rules.....

Apparently he said 'I want to take this opportunity to issue a public apology for the choices I made', did he mean 'I want to take this opportunity to issue a public apology for getting caught'

Grealish also breached the rules but I can't see any mention of whether he was breatherlised given he hit a couple of cars.

infections rates possibly now showing the benefit of isolation, altho weekend figures would need to be confirmed by similar stats come monday and tuesday.

Sunday - not so good

derbyshire 452 up 12%, London 11,978 up 10%

621 deaths.

But what are numbers that got bettef they dont mention that do they.

It's too soon to say if it's better or not. Remember it's the weekend - maybe the hospitals don't all work the same way, and we might be missing some from the total. It went down last Sunday too.

Just keep hanging in there and doing what we've been told to. It's still early days but if we all behave for the next 3-4 weeks, maybe that will see the numbers really improving.

Just read thison The Guardian website:

1h ago17:32

Public Health England said 11,085 tests for coronavirus were carried out on 8,651 people on Saturday in England. A tweet by the Department of Health added that PHE gave the testing capacity for inpatient care in England as 12,799 tests per day.

The announcement comes after a total of 12,334 new people were reported as being tested in the 24 hours up until 9am today. The equivalent figure for yesterday had slipped below 10,000, having previously been above 10,000 for two days in a row (see 3.07pm).

Updated at 5.42pm BST

Can anyone explain the first sentence? I would have presumed that if 11085 tests had been done they'd been done on 11085 people!

They are testing more people so the number of new cases will increase. I don’t think we’ll see if this lockdown has worked until next week.

Different types of test on the same person to ascertain accuracy? Dunno, just a guess.

Not very clear. I can only assume for some people they’ve done more than one test. I can’t think why unless either the first test was inconclusive (I don’t even know if that is possible) or they doubted the first test. People tested is what matters.

Based on the unproven belief that having it once provides immunity.  Hope so
