Indeed. Where were the spikes after the masses gathered on beaches, after illegal raves, after hundreds or thousands of fans celebrated in close proximity without masks?
Spikes are being blown out of all proportion. 1 person gets it and can easily pass it on to 30 people quickly without doing anything out of the ordinary. It doesn't mean that there is a problem as these people have been tested and know they have it so they will avoid spreading it. The reason it spread faster initially was because people weren't able to get tested so the virus spread. As such it is easier to slow down infections after spikes now without lockdowns - if anyone thinks the rate slowed in Oldham due to increased restrictions they are deluded as the vast majority of people still mingled with extended family, friends etc - it slowed because the majority of people who caught it were tested quickly and could then self isolate.
We now get ridiculous advice which suggest only people with symptoms should get tested as we still don't have enough testing capacity. This though can be catastrophic as if you have symptoms you are likely to self isolate regardless of whether you have had a test. If you don't have symptoms though you may have the virus and because you don't have symptoms and haven't been tested you will be far likelier to pass it on as you will be carrying on your normal business. What we need is increased testing whereby people who have no symptoms are regularly tested - just like what happened when football restarted and all the players were tested every couple of days even though they had no symptoms.
