If you turned on the light in your kitchen and only saw 6 roaches scatter, how many roaches are living in your house?

Bolsonaro is basically a bioterrorist.

The Brazilian strain has made its way to Spain. What a drain.

This really does tell you all you need to know about the efficiency of Boris Johnson's government:

"However, a third, currently unlinked individual is still being sought whose identity is unknown because they did not complete the registration card that came with their Covid-19 testing kit."

You have to take a test when you arrive in England, but you don't have to give any details.

I guess Brexit borders are only for restraint of trade

Maybe whoever filled out the form used an obvious fake name, which was only noticed when the test came in positive.

It doesn't make sense to not register who takes a test, so any other explanation seems odd.

Are they expected to test themselves? WTF.

Well, as long as it's gone by Christmas...I live in London with my partner, who is originally from Brazil, and she told me last week that she wanted to visit family and friends at Christmas. In Manaus.

You have 6 people, and the 6 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero.

It's about two weeks after Mardi Gras/Carnaval do Rio.  Did anyone sneak off the island to play?

I would have gone with "amok".

But but but...that's "racist" you can't call it a "Brazil" version of the corona virus, or a "British" or "
African".  Oh wait...you just can't call it where it started.  The CHINA virus.

The UK has always had a strong aversion to ID cards and the like, so even with Corona the idea of vaccine passports is seen by many as a slippery slope and an ID card by the back door.
Labour set up a national ID card scheme, but the Tories scrapped it the moment they came to power. Many countries in Europe have ID cards, and the requirement to carry them, and even the US has the driving licence as a defacto ID card. In the UK we don't have to carry our licences, or any ID or paperwork, even when driving.  My driving licence hasn't even got my photo on it.

So many, if not most, Brits go around without any formal ID on them. The only thing I carry are credit cards.

Of course, but don't you think that when someone is taking a COVID test on arrival in England, it might be a good idea at the very least to take a note of their name and address? Maybe check them against the passport which, in the circumstances, they must have?

Passports have names, but not your address. And if it does it's handwritten, not checked by anyone. And if they're foreign then that address would be abroad anyway, not where they'd be staying in the UK.

I wonder how a brazilian variant has made it to the UK and proceeded to spread with all of these extremely effective restrictions in place...

Going natural during the Trump years is definitely the strangest form of protest I've heard of.

Call us when the demented racist "president" of the United States starts using these terms in a not-even-remotely subtle dogwhistle foghorn of anti-{Hispanic, British, African} racism.
