Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

You can have the greatest services in the world and there will still be someone who doesnít go to appointments or doesnít seek out treatment Covid or not.

Itís sort of got to the stage where Iím not sure what point youíre now trying to make ?

As the discussion about acknowledged that people might suffer in situations when people are trying to save the majority, no one has denied this so where are we going other than round and round ?

Tbh, I don't think it is going to go away anytime soon. It's really hard, but this is our new reality now.

I agree. To be honest, people are reaching out for help, but the medical community is at its capacity.

Oh yes, very good point. It was excellent. Raspberry and Rhubarb it was. Wife away for her jab - so more jam on the way

Since i'm from D i must concede that my impression is that vaccinating in the UK is handled a lot better than here. I got my first jab yesterday though (AZ, only feeling some general indisposition).

I think we just got a head start, but it wonít be long before the roll out across Europe catches up. I had the AZ jab, second jab coming soon. I looked at the new infection rate numbers here and itís down to something like 2500 versus only two months ago when it was 60,000 a day.

I feel we are now reaching a point where as we slowly lift all the lock downs etc there will come a time that the government say, ďthatís it, nothing more we can doĒ. Iíd predict this could happen before the year is out

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

Good to hear that. Most countries in the southern Europe are officially doing better, shops are opening, we have less restrictions, but the numbers are the same.

I really hope you are right - about the "that's it, nothing more we can do" bit. Surely that would be the common sense approach but I have a horrible feeling that the government has now moved to a zero covid policy and come next Autumn we will be back under the thumb again. I really want to be wrong about this though.

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

My concern is other countries. Things do indeed look promising here, but if other countries canít stem COVID and its variants, there is a risk, if not a likelihood of spikes back here. Travel between countries is going to pose major risks. Our bubble up here in the Highlands is possibly one of the best places to be at the moment regarding this horrible pandemic, but people want to travel. Rightly or wrongly people have different thoughts and circumstances.

We can only hope.

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

I agree with jimboy. We should all be concerned about the importation and spread of new variants that our existing vaccines are not effective against. The "red zone" quarantine policy is a farce. The fact that it doesn't apply to India (where a new, more virulent variant is apparently spreading fast) is frankly absurd, and the surge testing for the SA variant in Wandsworth and Lambeth is in chaos. The mistakes of the last 12 months are being repeated yet again. (There's a theory that BJ won't prohibit travel from India because he's desperate to agree a trade deal before the EU does, but I'm sure our government would never sacrifice lives on the altar of Brexit...)
