    ccmfans.net is the Central Coast Mariners fan community, and was formed in 2004, so basically the beginning of time for the Mariners. Things have changed a lot over the years, but one thing has remained constant and that is our love of the Mariners. People come and go, some like to post a lot and others just like to read. It's up to you how you participate in the community!

    If you want to get rid of this message, simply click on Join Now or head over to https://www.ccmfans.net/community/register/ to join the community! It only takes a few minutes, and joining will let you post your thoughts and opinions on all things Mariners, Football, and whatever else pops into your mind. If posting is not your thing, you can interact in other ways, including voting on polls, and unlock options only available to community members.

    ccmfans.net is not only for Mariners fans either. Most of us are bonded by our support for the Mariners, but if you are a fan of another club (except the Scum, come on, we need some standards), feel free to join and get into some banter.

No it isn't. You get the kit and there is no record of where it was bought, whether it was used or what the positivity rate is.

In the UK they each have an individual QR code so you use it and scan it to the NHS. They have been posted the kit to you, you have used it and have recorded it - positive or negative. The mass of data can be used to target health services where they are needed most as hospitalisations follow after a lag infections.

In football you take stats - not for posterity - but to understand performance and make adjustments. Same principle should apply here.
Fairly sure our kits also come with qr code. The one I have does.

At least we know the length of time our government is willing to protect the vulnerable in our society. 2 years, capped.

If so then surely they should be using it. Otherwise there is no point in testing. You already know you feel sick.. If you aren't capturing and using the data then what is the point of the test. If you get sick you will turn up in hospital in a few days anyway. What has the test done except tell you (and none else) that you have covid.

Just checked it, it's a qr code for instructions on how to use it

You’ve misunderstood me, apologies I should have been more specific. I meant we already have incredibly unreliable data, so changing to a new system isn’t ruining a good example, it’s making a pretty poor one a little bit worse. We are already missing a huge number of positive cases every day, due to lack of available PCR tests, lack or RATs or due to the fact such a huge volume of people have no idea they are carrying. Removing the need for PCR tests will definitely mess with the data, but the ‘total case numbers’ hasn’t been accurate since omicron arrived, so it’s an almost irrelevant statistic already.

Its like using speeding fines to measure how many people are speeding on the roads - it’s only counting people who get caught.

With todays announcement that if you test positive to a RAT you don’t need a PCR test our already bad data is going to become complete garbage.
It's gone, you're on your own. Forget testing and rock up at the hospital or call an ambo if you're genuinely at deaths door, otherwise just suck it up. There are thousands and thousands of cases that are not being counted, no point counting now, just get on with it. Get a RAT if you can find one and isolate if you're positive.
