No it was how many cases they had before they locked it down tight. No one in and no one out. If they had to come in, with permission it was 14 day quarantine, most case came from these. They also tested and traced a lot. They had 0.5% positive rate on testing Check that with UK testing numbers. But don't let me get in the way of your fantasy.

My states testing and tracing only missed 1.6% of where they got it from
