Re: Coronavirus in the UK

I would never believe a word of what China has to say.

Pretty much on a par with Russia over the cover up of Chernobyl. A country which still insists the death toll of people post disaster stands at 4.

China will eventually try and exonerate themselves from this current unnatural disaster.

Bearing in mind, this is a country where 'freedom of speech' is not allowed.

Dunno about you, but as much as I'd like to get out and about again, I think I'd err on the side of caution just for a few more weeks after that... them'uns as thinks 2 jabs makes them invincible are labouring under an illusion!

Re: Coronavirus in the UK

The good thing is, only 10% of the 119,000 infected have been hospitalised.

According to latest data from PHE, a single dose of vaccine reduces a person's chances of catching coronavirus and needing hospital treatment by about 75%, even with Delta circulating in the UK.

And among people who had received the recommended two doses, the chances of catching and being hospitalised by coronavirus was reduced by more than 90%.

Re: Coronavirus in the UK

Just watched the news on one of the Governments test events, Download Festival at Donnington Park.

10,000 people allowed. No masks, No social distancing and moshing allowed.

40 bands will be performing over the 3 days.

Watching the clip of last night and this morning, it seemed like pre-covid days.

Two clear Covid tests required from those chosen to attend.

Video included in this link.

Oh let's not forget to 22,000 people allowed in at the England v Scotland game last night.

Be interesting to see the covid test results in 2 weeks.pensive
