Many of the party attendees were youth according to police.
Idiots!

That reminded me of my City's enforcement policies - and the statistics.. shame other places don't publish the same! I know a few who should have got a warning .. and some that should do soon.

Could be worse, seems the UK has some serious issues.
COPS broke up an illegal rave with 300 people in Huddersfield and 70 other parties in Birmingham despite a looming lockdown threat.

Yeah I reading some of the UK articles on one of the UK news sites, they apparently also used thermal imaging from the air on at least one party to find them.

Ha ha did you see that they raided the same condo apartment building in Victoria again for a second night and broke up a party and fined a guy who wouldn't move on. Unbelievable.

Regarding Schools reopening around the world, Chris Whitty seems to think that the slight increase in transmission will not necessarily come from kids passing to their parents, but from adults passing it to other adults as a result of the schools being open.
For example, parents meeting at the school gates at drop off time, teachers talking to parents etc.

It's worth a watch.

I can't read it or use the tool without creating an account - but can with the cached version

The original tool 'workings' can be found here for any that want to look deeper or wants to download a copy

Apparently there is one study that suggests kids under 5 can be highly infectious to other people.

""Children ages zero to five can be "highly infectious to other people. It turns out they have a thousand times more virus in their nose than you need to infect, so they're very, very contagious," said William Haseltine, a former professor at Harvard Medical School during an interview Monday on CNN."

Explains why the indoor parties young people are having are adding to higher cases here in BC, seems indoor gatherings is about as high risk as you can get.

I do wonder what they consider as Well-ventilated public transit system though, not sure I would want to be crammed into a subway car or bus because I don't consider what the typical bus or train has here as being well ventilated but masks are not largely required on public transit so that should help with reduce risk.

LOL.
This is completely contradictory to what the UK Chief Medical advisor says in the video at the 1 min mark. No wonder people are confused.

Oh for sure, I can't on a good day keep track of it all, one country says this, another that, one study say this, another that, and I am certain in plays a role in how people react.
