    This gets more and more scary. The Minister has no idea how many are tourists or returning residents or retests, and apparently doesn’t care. The Government is seeking more staff because of the increased number of tests which mean the existing staff are overworked and therefore liable to not test properly.
    The Minister announces a new model for the number of deaths which like the first is clearly wrong. Just accepts the report without question. Still repeats the R is under 1, when clearly it is 0.
    Tests are not 100% accurate and we have a Minister who reads from a prepared script and has no information when asked simple questions.
    The only smart thing she says is wear a mask, and wash your hands because the virus is here, but not yet detected.
