Use of R value in easing lock down
Currently the R value is one of the main indices for easing lockdown. It is skewed upwards in Scotland due to the high infection rate in care homes. This is not representative of the wider community where the R value of the infection rate is significantly lower. In Scotland we are being kept in stricter lockdown because of an artificially elevated R value. It is relatively easy to isolate care homes both staff and patients and allow the rest of the population to resume a more normal lifestyle.
