Covid 19 numbers are increasing once again. One thing is clear, an office cleaner in Bolton is more likely to be infected than supermarket worker in Reading.

Covid 19 seems to hit hardest in deprived communities. Areas well known for high unemployment and low living standards are on continuous lockdown while others area with higher incomes levels seem to be covid "free".

Are people not washing their hands and refusing to wear masks? It's hard to say :think:

The issue seems to be working practices. In areas with a manufacturing base covid 19 numbers are higher. In places with few jobs and low wages its the same.

In areas with a service industry base like banking covid 19 is rare.

Overall it mite just be shopping habits. With service workers working from home, there less people on the move and less transmission. Using online shopping and home delivery frequently. While those on benefits & low incomes still shop in person regularly increasing the risk of transmission.

It's more to do with intelligence, I believe.
If one is prone to running around shouting 'it's all a hoax' refusing to wear a mask or keep a social distance then they get what they deserve.
The near 50.000 deaths our nation has suffered should be example enough.
Wash your hands!
And in a way, I am a little pleased to see that young people, those who believed they were immune ,are now going down with Coronavirus.
We may get them to behave yet!

By “going down with” do you mean suffering no ill effects, a tendency to disbelieve anything that’s told to you, that conflicts with your intention to do what you want to, anyway?

I feel there too much fake news floating around.

It's hard to understand why covid 19 is hitting harder in the old northern mill towns and leaving London alone.

Unless there a working vaccines soon.... areas unaffected at the moment will become graveyards in the New Year. A mix of seasonal flu & covid 19 will be deadly no matter the age.

It’s hitting certain communities of those Northern mill towns... those communities that have struggled to listen to advice..

The Brighton's on edge. People queuing for haircuts & supermarkets packed out once again.

One school's just closed after children tested positive for covid 19. (The school is close to the University of Sussex.) Other schools in the area are rumored to close to closing too, just waiting on test results.

The fear of a second wave brought on by returning students is turning into a reality.

Questions are being asked why the council allowed the universities to reopen knowing the risks they posed to local people.
