Show us the evidence

Before imposing more restrictions explain what the argument is to support each - and let us see the real evidence - not just the opinion of a scientist who may have a connection to vaccine or drug companies. How many local hospital admissions are there for 'confirmed' and for suspected Sars-Cov-2? What was the test method (antibody or PCR); what is the accuracy ? What is the evidence that transmission is within households , transport or hospitality, etc ? How many infections have been acquired within hospitals - where a patient went in for another condition?

Why the contribution is important

The public will be more likely to agree to restrictions if they believe they are justified and applied fairly (not uniformly) - only to those sectors and locations where a potential problem exists.

    More transparency and information required.

    The government has just closed down 5 health board areas. Clackmananshire is in Forth Valley and is blue as cases are at a very low level, Stirling yellow and Falkirk just amber yet this whole area is being targeted for restrictions. Dundee City is amber and is not being targeted? Glasgow was higher weeks ago and nothing happened. There is no justification for these measures if they don’t follow the numbers. Show us the evidence indeed.

    Why don’t we hear anything about false positives, the number of assymptomatic cases, reasons why people are getting tested, numbers suffering mild, average or severe symptoms, etc. Why don’t we hear about the numbers suffering from flu or other respiratory diseases, which are apparently causing 10 times as many deaths as CV19. Put all this information in the public domain and let us all make our own minds up.
