... and how come, not a single journalist asked that question?
The dictionary definition of 'medium' is pretty simple: 'being in the middle between an upper and lower amount, size, degree, or value'. Does no-one in Government (including scientists and advisors on huge sums of money), even have a grip on basic English? No wonder we are in the sh*t!
Also, how come no criteria was set out for the different tiers? And, again, not a single journalist thought to ask! This is a system, (and I'm being generous to call it that), that seems to be designed to encourage political ping-pong....
Bozo: "So, Andy, we are putting you in the very high tier."
Andy: "Don't think so Boz. I calculated that we are in the medium tier."
Bozo: "What? How [the ***k] did you get to that?"
Andy: "How [the ***k] did you get to very high."
Bozo: "I'm afraid I can't tell you that Andy."
Andy: "Well I can't tell you how I got to medium then! Now, 'do one' Boz!"

In the OSI Model, the medium is the lowest layer too. And it is correct
EDIT: I just had a look, in the English version the lowest it is called "Physical", in my study times (many years ago) and languages (Spanish / German) "medium" was used too
Seeing the rest of the messages I have realized, that the one that has understood it wrong was me.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Probably because (like all governments) they are using a Ouija board to plan their Covid response ...

Was it politics? I was having a go at the UK Government (not a political party), their advisors and journalists. When it comes to politicians I am totally neutral. They are all useless, self-serving tvv@ts!
What's the surprise? Loads of "important" (?) things in the world begin in the middle:
- SAT Scores (collage aptitude test in US, or once was)
- Credit Ratings from the major credit agencies
In the case of the latter, there's an artificial max, as well. I mean, really, should someone like Warren Buffet have any limit on their credit rating - assuming, of course, they're not trying to buy one of the EU member states.
