Wow. Secondary level?If the Guardian report of that cluster is correct the residents had received their second doses of AZ during the previous week. So it may well be good news, in that they basically were able to fight off serious disease on the back of a single dose of vaccine.
The thing that does worry me is that it got into the home. Was that through an uncaccinated care worker or, less likely given the numbers of residents affected, an uncaccinated visitor? Does that mean that the testing regime for staff/visitors isn't enough to spot this version at its infectious stage? Plus, of course, it sends us back to the ongoing debate about care workers and vaccination.
The other big cluster being reported this week is the school in Long Eaton where they've got more than a hundred cases. They closed for the week after the cases were identified on Tuesday. We don't know the variant involved there, but there has to be a serious investigation of what happened and why. Including questions about whether the heating/ventilation system could be involved - something we've not really addressed so far but which has raised questions in quarantine hotels in some locations.
