Dad was the last generation to see National Service and it had just been increased from 18 months to 24! He had just finished his seven year electrician's apprenticeship so what did the army do? Put him in the Typing Pool...round pegs and square holes and all that!

Exactly, potential - because no-one knows how the virus is transmitted, only guesses.  That's why we do not really know if a lockdown is effective at all.

I think it's pretty clear how effective lockdown is. If you were designing an experiment you would apply different levels of restriction to various parts of the country and see if those which had been most restricted had the lowest number of cases afterwards. Such as for arguments sake Wales or Manchester being severely restricted so their current case level should be among the lowest in the country while Cornwall should be in dire straits.

If it gave a really clear result that proved it not very effective you'd have to pretend that a new strain in a so far relatively low level area was a surprise to justify further draconian restrictions.

Alternatively you could take a group of workers who had been exposed to the virus at least as much as the average person would have been and see if their hospitalisation and mortality rates were significantly higher. Supermarket workers would be ideal but nobody seems in a hurry to do that.

I doubt very much that many have steadfastly followed the lock down rules.

I was put down as a key worker when the first lockdown came in as I work in the food chain industry, as Covid numbers over the last few weeks have risen at my workplace I decided to be regularly tested, all negative. Then today, today of all days I find the test I took yesterday has come back positive so at the time of my test I have Covid, now there will be many on here who will poo poo this and tell me I am just another statistic but let me tell you as I sit here I am worried about what the next few days have in store.
