    It's a huge lifestyle change, plus my wife is expecting and baby is due in August. I look at what my friend has achieved and he's saved so much up to come back to the UK. I'll have to seriously think about it but my wife might find it hard to leave her widowed mother behind.

    The problem with those statistics being schools ran on such a reduced capacity (some were even out-right closed) from March through to September and again this Jan/Feb that of course teachers were less likely to be infected at work over the last year. Comparing just under four months of full schooling infection statistics with 6, 8, 10 months of taxi drivers working or those working in restaurants ain’t like-for-like.

    (I’m not saying school staff should get priority by the way - just pointing out the stats on occupation infections/deaths are a load of rubbish).

    If i remember well I think Qatartiger worked out there not the same field of work but may be able to tell you about the place.

    Working abroad is not for everyone, but if you can make it work it could set you up for life.

    Maybe its because they have a curfew that the schools can be open?
    Seriously, it strange. The infection rate in Sweden, a very sparsely populated, is soaring whilst in India which is densely populated it is dropping. Which suggests population density is not such a great factor. Who knows?

    Seems to be rocketing in prisons, where you'd think the lockdown was probably the most stringent, and in hospitals, where you'd expect measures to be scientific.

    Speaking to a friend who's wife works in an East Hull school, 25 of about 40 staff were off with (tested) Covid last week before half term and a few days after with isolation
    About 1/2 to 2/3 of the kids are still attending at the school

    I've never really understood the science behind schools being one of the safest places .. As far as I understand kids can still pass it on even if they don't get ill with it , therefore purely by numbers every school every day is a potential super spreader event as schools simply do not lend themselves to being able to be covid secure no matter how hard any teachers or staff work. The school day for most kids start long before arriving at the school and finish long after they have left the school premises, surely by proxy a daily chance of a super spreader event style day at any school can affect hundreds of families at any one time in an area , and by proxy things can get stupidly out of control very quickly once again ?

    I would have placed schools as one of the more dangerous places infection wise.

    Bu then what do we do , we can't just sacrifice children's education after all ?

    You would have thought prison officers would be pretty good at the whole lockdown thing.
    Strange
    Perhaps Norman Stanley Fletcher has been sharing his snout too freely?

    Just watched the Captain Tom funeral on BBC. It's funny how a bloke no-one had heard of 9 months ago and will probably never hear of again has touched so many people consciences in a positive way. Quite moving, to me anyway...

    Had my first jab this morning - the Astra Zeneca; as a precaution (in case the tracking chip isn't working) I've emailed my next months itinerary to Bill Gates <ok>

    I also think from a mental health perspective, lots of teachers (& other key workers) were stressed before this, adding extra stress of will I / won't get it, does not bode well for individuals and schools teams, wouldn't have hit the Covid Vaccine targets hard to open it up to all key workers
