Re: Coronavirus in the UK

From your link @pgn  there is another one, explaining the 'perfect storm' which has resulted in Covid getting out of control....ie mass gatherings, low vaccination rates and more contagious variants

300,000 new cases on Tuesday.

Re: Coronavirus in the UK

Perfect storms are becoming more prevalent, as far as I can see, because people or regimes believe they know better than the WHO or the science behind the disease, @Cleoriff.

Good article that one too.

Here's a good analysis of what went on with PPE.

How many of us would expect a waiver on quality if we were asked to do something fast?
Not long, and the video makes a good point.

Sums it up completely @pgn
Cronyism everywhere in our Government.
Incompetence throws public money around like confetti.

Re: Coronavirus in the UK

Regarding PPE, I haven't forgotten how tons of it stayed in containers or warehouses, unused and going past it's sell by date. Also how much of it was actually ineffective as it failed to pass the required standard for safety.

The whole PPE fiasco cost us millions. I think I said this a long time ago on this thread.

You did, @Cleoriff.

And now that Matt Hancock has effectively lost the challenge, and has till 07-May to give the evidence requested for some of these suspect contracts, guess what?

The loser pays the court costs - so you and I are paying again for this stupid blunder and incompetent government. 😠

As well as the Indian variant ravaging through the North West t seems we hve to worry about a new Thai strain

 

New COVID 'Thai variant' investigated after 109 cases found in UK (yahoo.com)


This is awful news @jonsie. I notice they have omitted to tell us where the Thai variant cases are located?

It also looks bad for the country 're-opening' on June 21st as the news comes as Matt Hancock confirmed that cases of the Indian variant of COVID-19 have doubled in a week to reach almost 7,000, although hospital admissions remain broadly flat, data shows.

 

Sad news Smiley Sad
