Let’s remember this time of year, and festivals in particular have always been a super spreader for viruses and sniffles. We’ve just got a high profile virus which aids the media agenda this year.
Infections may be high but nearly all with minor symptoms no worse than a cold or other viral infection. Hospitalisation and death rate is low. There is nothing really to report worse than any other year.

Very optimistic.  High profile because there were 502 deaths with Covid mentioned on the death certificate in week ending 6th August in England. There were 875 excess deaths in the same week so no this is not just high profile it is killing people of all ages.  The covid dashboard indicates an average of 75 deaths per day.  Lets continue to take care of each other.
