I'm gonna stick my neck out and say: calculated by an algorithm!!Transparency is the fundamental problem and has been throughout. It is wrong that they take a regional approach when they want and a county approach when it suits. Equally, no one knows what they are aiming at. What is the threshold amongst the measures they are using to reach a lower tier? Achieving anything in life is always a problem if you don’t know what you are aiming for.
It would be good to know what each area is aiming for, but because each area is different, no doubt that would also cause more voices of discontent?
What I am certain of, is that getting a hold on the infection rate is unlikely this side of xmas, especially since retail has been opened up. I can picture the queues for Primark next Friday already
