while Boris 'The Liar' Johnson says there was “absolutely nothing” to suggest a winter lockdown was on the cards

40,000 - 50,000 new cases a day for seven consecutive days

Approaching 1000 patients a day admitted to hospitals

The daily death toll rose to 223 on Tuesday, the highest number since March, and averages well over 100 people dying a day from Covid

“cannot be expected to work any harder than they already are if we’re to get safely through this winter”. “What we’re seeing is many services are at capacity, and in many cases beyond capacity, and problems that traditionally could have been diverted can no longer be diverted,”

I see that Johnsons cronies continue to lie about ripping people off with pricing od COMPULSORY travel tests

 

WWW.THEGUARDIAN.COM

Firms offering lateral flow tests for people arriving in England are ‘gaming’ official website, says expert

 

 

A Department of Health and Social Care spokesperson LIED:

“These reports are inaccurate and misleading - the average price is between £20 and £30 for lateral flow tests and there is no provider listed on gov.uk offering lateral flow tests at £150."

 

 

 

A quick look at the REALITY in East Midlands from the Gov site shows

craploads advertising starting at £150 quid,

the lowest ones advertising 'from' £1 and £1.49 actually clickbait linking to a starting minimum £29 + £50 respectively,

the top pair of highest clickbait links start at £200 + £217 - and no doubt go higher if you click on the bait link

 

- these are for simple LFTs - profiteering IMO

 

- with sod all done by Johnsons cronies except deny it (LIE)

Whistleblowers have described the problems at the Wolverhampton lab run by Dante which probably explain why there were so many false negative tests. Case numbers in the south west seem to have gone up since people who were infected were allowed to circulate in the community rather than self-isolating.

 

What isn't explained is why it took weeks to pick up disparities in the numbers when a percentage of results are expected to be positive. From comments elsewhere, it seem they didn't have systems in place to doublecheck.

What is meant by “not properly authorised to do so”?

 

Do you mean accredited by UKAS (previously CPA)?

 

Do you mean not accredited by UKAS at all? Do you mean accredited by UKAS but not for a specific test or (type of test[s])??

 

Labs can be accredited for some tests and not others. Some (very reputable) labs (UKAS accredited!!) may offer ‘niche’ tests that aren’t UKAS accredited - the devil is in the detail.

 

As ever, does that poster actually know the facts and issues around their ‘throwaway’ comments …….. or should we expect ‘radio silence’ and a lack of explanation / detail (that, if given,  might confirm they know about what they are posting, rather than them just posting ‘sound bites’ or citing random sources without understanding what they mean ……)

Bazza, I didn't check the detail of which authorisation Ukas gave the lab, but I think one of the links I posted said they'd denied giving Dante the approprioate authorisation for covid test.

From the link in post #3657.

 

'It also emerged last week that the lab was never fully accredited to carry out Covid testing by Ukas, which assesses whether laboratories meet the right safety and quality standards. It’s understood the site had received a preliminary accreditation instead and was seeking to progress this.

“From what I understand, Dante Labs tried to get the Wolverhampton site up running as soon as possible without taking into account how labs in England are run,” the whistleblower said.'

Again, the devil is in the detail …..

 

Preliminary accreditation could mean accreditation for tests other than Covid PCR, or for Covid PCR but at Stage 1 or Stage 2.

 

https://www.ukas.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/Covid-19-Private-Provider-FAQs.pdf

 

If at Stage 1 or Stage 2 but they hadn’t exceeded the timescale for progressing their accreditation: that shouldn’t be used to infer fault (there may be lots of labs with accreditation ongoing that still have robust systems in place!)


If they breached the timescales for maintaining their preliminary accreditation: then that is a concern.

 

Infer fault from what they have done wrong:

accreditation?

testing protocols??

(were there

a) inadequate positive controls?

b) adequate positive controls but inadequate IQA to ensure e.g. adequate sample being pipetted to allow positive results)?

These details haven’t yet been released from the investigation, and will be of much more significance than if they held preliminary accreditation but were waiting for it to be progressed.

UK has highest daily death toll since February

The UK has had its highest number of daily Covid deaths reported since late February, as another 293 people have died within 28 days of a positive Covid-19 test.

The amount has been distorted by data from NHS England which was not provided on Monday, giving an artificially low number of deaths – 38 – but today’s figure is the largest amount since 21 February, when 325 deaths were recorded.

Separate figures published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show there has now been more than 166,000 deaths registered with Covid-19 on the death certificate.

Another 33,865 new coronavirus cases were confirmed earlier on Tuesday.

Johnson bluffs his way through an interview with Christiane Amanpour. Why didn't he wear a mask when sitting in the COP26 hall next to David Attenborough?

 

He's still waffling on about only needing a mask when in a confined space with people he doesn't normally meet, but also ignores the Scottish rules on masks, which I think are complulsory at the moment.
