    Not "generation bashing", whatever that may be, but my observations seem to be born out by recent stats.

    See below, 7 - 24 age groups have considerably higher rates of infection than the 50 - 69 and 70+ age groups.



    And a complete lack of consideration for their fellows with no social distancing in the recent Foam Festival at Aberdeen University a couple of days ago.

    Can't speak for Aberdeen but in Scotland it is 10-14 age group that has the highest case numbers and most hospitalisations and deaths from Covid in Scotland is the 80+ age group.

      As I have mentioned before our DIL is a school teacher in a junior school think that’s 6-11 year olds, they have had a lot of covid cases, seven in her class alone, also a number of teachers are down with it.
      Think half term has come just at the right time, as there was talk of closing the school if it got much worse.

        There's a big advertising campaign launching today, to encourage booster take up. I've just been watching some of it on the news.

        ​​​​​Fingers crossed it brings the punters in.

          Where I live, those who have been called for booster jabs, have reported waiting times in excess of 1 hour with no seating available.

          No uniform pattern.

            So everyone seems to know that schoolkids are driving the spread of Covid. Why aren't they being made to wear masks at school, and regularly tested? Am I being too simplistic ?

              In Scotland compulsory face masks for children in high schools to continue probably until at least the New Year. It was hoped that this rule would have been relaxed this month.

              However this rule is not applicable to after school school gatherings by the same groups. So where does the infection take place?

              In Scotland we have relaxed social distancing. Does that explain why our case numbers are not decreasing as fast as they were??

                Not at all.

                In my humble opinion the school kids have been ‘thrown under the bus’, by the dithering and lengthy discussions of those committees back in August. The first of which couldn’t make a decision to vaccinate younger teens or not! Then we hear that vaccinations will start second week of term and see some video of this on the news. (They are still showing those same clips btw.....no new ones!)

                Now we learn there are schools that haven’t even been sent the consent forms yet. What a shambles, again imho. Those committees should have been making decisions even before the school holidays started and getting kids jabbed before the new school year.

                Rant over.

                    We have all our jabs including booster. Our health centre is on the ball no probs. As mentioned on this thread a lot of people are walking about as though Covid doesn't exist not taking any precautions at all. I think this is a very inconsiderate attitude. They will be the first to moan if the Government bring back tighter restrictions no doubt.

                        IT was identified very early on that the primary transmission route is within and between households.
                        that's why those restrictions were put in place to stop household mixing and were effective.


                        Schools and care homes effectively become one big multi household mixing event if there are not significant social interventions.

                        Mass events tend to have a small impact and short lived as everyone goes home
                        even at events then peoples close contacts tend to be small groups within the mass.


                        General activities have low impact as people don't mix with large number of households.

                          Many thanks TD for all the links and data you’ve posted on here, especially the link for making booster appointments.

                          Its the mini super spreader events within families that are so worrying. Households with multiple children then being infected by each other and now no-one having to stay home unless they test positive. It’s easy to see how Covid rapidly spreads through all age groups of kids.....and their schools.

                            All these families including grandparents that mix should be taking
                            regular tests at home, as recommended min of twice a week for all of this year.

                            Suspect many are not bothering like a few on here that have volunteered they don't bother when having mixing events.

                            If you look at the data you can see a link to childcare during the school holidays as people returned to work.
