    A question for Gary Robinson. Just why did Shetland, with youself as the chair of NHS Shetland have the highest proportion per head of population of Covid 19 in the UK and perhaps Europe in Feburary of this year? That is quite an achievement for a small island that should have been easy to protect. How did you get that so wrong?
