Unless they were a high risk group, or transmitted it amongst themselves on the plane (although it would take longer than a flight to become test positive), then 10/70 is a very high hit rate. I suspect the second set of tests has a few false positives. No real harm if they have to quarantine anyway.
Either false pos at this end or incorrectly cleared at departure end, either way as you say its just as well the whole lot were quarantined
(p.s i got my dates wrong, they tested + on 1st Sept so they have all recovered/cleared by now)

conspiracy theory alert

sounds like the perfect set of results if you want to ensure the public buy into what some would see as very severe quaranting requirement going forward

Yesterday I went to the supermarket much later than usual, 9pm instead of lunch time. I don't think I have ever seen that many people without mask in it at the same time. Is there like a mask free happy hour?

But I find people wearing a mask wrong even worse.

(probably should be in the rant threat)

Pleasing to see this morning that BA have now extended their 'fly-by' date to end Oct for cancelling and getting a voucher. Will check with our travel insurance to see if we can get a refund from the insurance if we cancel our flight to Valencia (due to fly there 16th) - if not there is always the voucher (to be used by end April 2022).
Update - Travel Insurance says No as BA are providing a voucher. So as far as Travel Insurance is concerned we do not suffer any financial loss. Fair enough.

Mask free, I try to think there is a genuine reason. Not always easy to do but lets think the best of people 🤔.

Mask wrong, usually pulled down from the nose, is just plain stupid. I also get slightly irrationally wound up by that one, you are not alone.

Yes there is.
It was the same pre masks. Free for all, no arrows, no queues.

Dale winton comes out at 9.45 and everyone races round looking for inflatable produce with cash attached.

Given up trying to pull people up politely in the hospital and explain the risks to them and others. Most at the start were apologetic (some of the older people didn't even realise they had it on wrong) but as with a lot of things with this pandemic people seem to be becoming blase

Seem El Presidento and Mrs El Presdiento have got it now. Wonder how it will impact him and if it changes his views on it like it has said to have done for Boris. But I guess he'll be necking the hydroxychloroquine now.

Trump is in a high risk category, old age group and he knows who ate all the pies. I would never wish anyone ill, but a chastening experience for him might change US policy to save a few less privileged people.

I was wondering the same, gets a doing at the first debate, makes a meal of the Proud Boys situ, and has another debate on the horizon.
Gets Cv-19, suddenly that's the news...
We can't really discuss that further, gets into the 'P' word.

If they have it good luck to them in their recovery.

Agreed, but sooner or later someone with sense will see that most things in life, these days especially, are underpinned by the P word and avoiding it completely makes for sterile conversation ;).

Solve for the root cause, not the symptom... that's my motto :)
