Drug Law Journal - Resource for news on defective medical devices and high-risk drugs Nicola Sturgeon humiliation: How John Curtice brutally exposed flaw in SNP's Brexit plot From the outset, Ms Sturgeon has been clear that she wants Scotland to remain in the EU if she is not satisfied with the UK's Brexit terms. The SNP leader has often argued that Scotland voted 62 percent in favour of remaining in the 2016 vote, and that therefore affords the Scottish First Minister a mandate to pursue EU membership. While Scotland did vote in favour of staying in the EU, polling expert John Curtice highlighted in March 2017 that support for Ms Sturgeon's Brexit demands may not be as unanimous as first thought. Research published by NatCen Social Research revealed how Scottish people were not in favour of freedom of movement described by Mr Curtice as "rather sober reading for Scotland’s first minister". He added in the Guardian: "Most voters in Scotland might have voted to remain, but that does not mean that they are so enamoured of the merits of the EU that they necessarily wish to maintain freedom of movement now that the UK is heading for the EU exit."

Pressure Washing Services | Free Estimate - Murfreesboro, TN Dominic Raab insists government will deliver 100,000 coronavirus tests a day, despite series of setbacks Dominic Raab has insisted the government’s commitment to deliver 100,000 coronavirus tests a day within weeks still stands despite a series of setbacks. Officials admitted earlier this week that none of the new antibody tests ordered by the government were sensitive enough to use. Ministers had hoped they would allow experts to test for the presence of the disease in the past, alongside tests that show whether or not someone is currently suffering from Covid-19.

A Department of Health source said the latest figures did not include results from Manchester or Leeds, because of a “data processing delay”.
Coronavirus: Pandemic is 'accelerating', WHO warns as cases pass 300,000 Image copyright AFP The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that the coronavirus disease pandemic is "accelerating", with more than 300,000 cases now confirmed. It took 67 days from the first reported of Covid-19 to reach 100,000 cases, 11 days for the second 100,000, and just four days for the third 100,000. But WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said it was still possible to "change the trajectory". He urged countries to adopt rigorous testing and contact-tracing strategies. "What matters most is what we do. Image Copyright @FIFAcom @FIFAcom Dr Tedros said asking people to stay at home and other physical-distancing measures were an important way of slowing down the spread of the virus, but described them as "defensive measures that will not help us to win". "To win, we need to attack the virus with aggressive and targeted tactics - testing every suspected case, isolating and caring for every confirmed case, and chasing and quarantining every close contact."
Insulation Company | Spray Foam Insulation - Atlanta, GA UK will have Europe's worst coronavirus death toll, says study World-leading disease data analysts have projected that the UK will become the country worst hit by the coronavirus pandemic in Europe, accounting for more than 40% of total deaths across the continent. The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) in Seattle predicts 66,000 UK deaths from Covid-19 by August, with a peak of nearly 3,000 a day, based on a steep climb in daily deaths early in the outbreak. The analysts also claim discussions over “herd immunity” led to a delay in the UK introducing physical distancing measures, which were brought in from 23 March in England when the coronavirus daily death toll was 54. Portugal, by comparison, had just one confirmed death when distancing measures were imposed. The IHME modelling forecasts that by 4 August the UK will see a total of 66,314 deaths – an average taken from a large estimate range of between 14,572 and 219,211 deaths, indicating the uncertainties around it. The same grim picture applies to intensive care beds.
