similar happened when Burnley was mixed up with Barnsley - commentator mentioned that Barnsley had a large ethnic population - it doesn't but Burnley does. 
Makes you wonder just how many other errors are announced and because we don't have local knowledge we don't realise they're inaccurate!

Yes, apparently it is happening here again and not just in Melbourne.

This is from 4 days ago and the reason cases have spiked and the military brought in.

No wonder it's still active with those attitudes.
There was a link to a related article written in late May on mask-wearing. It also mentioned gloves. Conclusion regarding gloves - unnecessary for members of the public and can be counter-productive, leading to a false sense of security and less frequent hand-washing. Also, as they are single-use, wearing gloves creates an increase in waste. (It may also affect supply & price of gloves to people who really need them.)

https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/895356/Weekly_COVID19_Surveillance_Report_w26.pdf

This is Weekly Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Surveillance Report Year: 2020; Week: 26; by Public Health England. Report is based on Week 25 (data between 15th June and 21st June) + where available, daily data up to 24th June.
"There was a small increase in the total number of suspected or confirmed acute respiratory infection outbreaks in Week 25, with little change in the number of outbreaks in care homes, hospitals or 'other settings' but an increase in the number of suspected or confirmed school outbreaks. School outbreaks have increased over the past 2 weeks from 15 in Week 23 to 24 in Week 24 to 44 in Week 25." Explains that this coincides with wider school re-opening since Week 23 but also with expansion of testing and contact tracing.
Followed by pages of charts.
Thanks for the link, Gadget.

Leader of Barnsley LA interviewed on "PM" now. Thinks outbreaks in his area are in factories.

The other link is to Public Health England report on UK Government website so should be accessible.

In relation to the Leicester situation there was an interesting BBC News article earlier:-
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-53235709

The conclusion seems to be that there are multiple factors involved, but demographics and workplace transmission are toward the top of the list.  No specific mention of schools being a transmission source.


In other news, concerns over misleading claims being circulated on social media:-

I think this might be readable. I followed a trail leading from the Guardian, via Twitter and got to this:

https://www.theyworkforyou.com/wrans/?id=2020-05-19.48980.h&p=24949

It may explain why local authorities didn't get the local information:

As an existing professional services provider to the public sector, Deloitte’s expertise is being used to supplement in-house resource to deliver significant programmes of work, which currently includes the national response to COVID-19. The contract with Deloitte does not require the company to report positive cases to Public Health England and local authorities.

Deloitte had a contract  for Covid testing.

With maps and charts

and

https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/895356/Weekly_COVID19_Surveillance_Report_w26.pdf

Page 21 "Figure 30: Ethnic group of confirmed COVID-19 (Pillar 1 and 2) deaths, England
(n= 38,150)
"

In the 2nd link about 7/8ths (Seven Eighths) of the deaths (pie chart) look to be White in that week?

Also I never realised that attacks of Asthma increase during thunder storms anyway.

"There was an increase in GP out-of-hours contacts for difficulty breathing/wheeze/asthma last week, which is likely linked with thunderstorm activity and associated ‘thunderstorm asthma’. "

Humid weather yes, but never realised it was brought on by Thunder Storms.
