So this "surge of cases linked to pub openings" is actually 32 out of 120 people who had been in an Aberdeen pub and had tested positive. No mention of severity of infection, no mention of any being hospitalised. So not really a "surge" more like more scaremongering which is getting tiresome now.

So there are numerous cases of people contracting the virus up and down the country (see the daily figures) some of which allegedly happened in a pub environment. But could just as easily happened in a bus stop or a cafe or Greggs or the ASDA or the local mosque. But the media like the sound of "surge of cases linked to opening of pubs" better because this is what catches the attention of gullible people.

You also hear tales of people having long lasting symptoms . Perhaps this virus can lie dormant for a while on an asymptomatic victim then burst through with an infection which would give the impression of a new infection.
