NHS QR Code checking is a joke.  I went to see Shed Seven last weekend at Leicester, showed my code, got let in and have still come down with Covid.  I've not been anywhere else.  I'm fine, but the worry is that it doesn't build any confidence for future events.

Except it shows that people have at least taken steps to be safe by either getting a vaccination or showing a negative test.

Glad you're ok BTW.

I think places are just get sloppy now. Like at the gym they use to have wipes to wip down machines  now they dont stock up and expect people to bring their own wipes to wipe machines down.

I appreciate this is a isolated incident but i bet there are many places like this. This for me is reason rates are going up along with people not wearing masks in shops/trains etc. Its not just the unvaccinated

This pandemic has been weaponised to cover up a truly pathetic governments incompetence so the more they are probed / pushed the more they will install controls over normal people

Guess you'll just have to stay on stand-by.

I don't think their use is a joke, but I don't not think there's something of a 'nudge' element in them aimed at a hesitant demographic that are perhaps inclined to believe they're invincible.

According to the guy I was speaking to yesterday who is on the board of a large London hospital - he was telling me that hospitalisations due to covid are now on the decrease.

It always make me wonder why people don't want the jabs? If I had cancer, they could stick anything into my arm if it meant that I would live longer.

The NHS QR code is a joke. They don't know your name so it's pointless. How do they know that is your QR code, they don't scan them just look at it so you could really show any QR code and that would be enough. Government panicking over numbers that are predicted, yet all of their predictions have been massively high, yet they still persist in believing them.

Do you not think there is an air of inevitability about that?

As soon a a new variant was found you knew we would be heading for restrictions come year end....its almost like it was planne......

Don't think it's major conorervirus admissions that's causing the problem, it's just the fact there no room in the hospitals for people,

The SAGE scientists seem determined to outdo each other in terms of gloominess which was probably predictable. Hopefully we come nowhere near football being played in empty stadiums again.

Government panicking over numbers that are predicted, yet all of their predictions have been massively high, yet they still persist in believing them.

When I have done QR checking we have looked at the dates that the code is valid for and we know what the NHS app looks like.

We have also had a quick look at whether the gender & dob looks a reasonable match. I have done ID spot checks on anyone who doesn’t seem quite legit.

You couldn’t show ‘any’ QR code - it’d have to at least be the NHS one, for all but the most lax security.

Nonetheless, I agree it is mainly easy to use someone else’s & just as easy to fake your own as the LFT app only uploads the QR code of the test, it doesn’t read the result, so you can upload a test you didn’t even take and say it was negative.

It’s a bit of a barrier. It makes people think twice. No one thinks it eliminates risk but it does lower it.
