Yes, apparently. Like the virus, it won't go away, although there is no vaccine for this thread.Is this drivel still going on ?,
It is, mostly, but there are particular threads that are not about Fiats. Such as the smile, grumpy and this thread.I thought this site was supposed to be about FIATs !!!
Just got a text from my doctors with a link to book my booster jab.We both had flu jabs on 18th September.
Mrs C has her 3rd Covid jab next Saturday(23rd Oct), which will be just over 6-months since her 2nd jab. She got the text to book her 3rd last Sunday, but didn't book it until Wednesday, so if she actually clicked straight away it could have been done yesterday, which would have been exactly 6-months since the 2nd.
My jabs have been 5-weeks after hers, so I expect to get a text for mine around 14th November.
I have a particular interest in Japan, have been following the main Japanese newspapers watching NHK-World Tv (State Broadcaster) Western nations often take a negative view of it's health service and social service provisions but they are a nation of circa 130 million living on 25% of land area. Greater Tokyo has n estimated population north of 15million (2015) - yet Nationally they have only had 18,000 deaths and their demographic has the oldest cohort in the world. Their urban population is convivial drinking in pubs, ins and restaurants after long hours of work and in normal times they pack close together. Outside Tokyo Station when pedestrians cross the 'scatter crossing' some 3000 people cross at any one time. Why have they been so successful so far in managing Covid Pandemic because despite high outdoors temperatures and high humidity they wear masks and have respect for the common good. Also their Medical Science is very good and the scientific advisory board is not hobbled by naked political interest as in the UK. Finally, for those who don't know modern medical understanding of the human immune system was revolutionised by two Japanese Professors who discovered the T cell and B cell. Japanese medicine is coming up with revolutionary therapies for regenerative medicine employing IPS cells - another world leading field.As of this evening 6,077 deaths in a population of 60,480,000
1 in 10,000
current world death rate is 16,312 per 7,700,000,000
1 in 472,000
The italian deaths are hugely skewed towards older people. 87% of the dead are over 70 as of 13th march.
The last one was the Mu variant.Omicron? did we skip a dozen varients? or just not announce them?
