This is the finest piece of official "Transparency" I have ever seen. If ALL our governing bodies were this visibly on the ball, we’d all have much more confidence in such establishments. At a time when everyone is stressed and trying to hang in there, availability of information is critical, so we can see how we are doing. I look forward to seeing "the numbers" every day and it helps to keep us going when we see the scale of work being done by others to keep us safe. Great job, and Thanks to all concerned.
