Coronavirus - Part Two.

Omicron symptoms mild so far, says South African doctor who spotted it
Dr Angelique Coetzee, the South African doctor who first spotted the new Covid variant Omicron, says the patients seen so far have had "extremely mild symptoms" - but more time is needed before we know the seriousness of the disease for vulnerable people.

It will indeed be ironic if this new scariant, which people are getting so worried about (not me though),  is actually more infectious and out competes Delta, but has milder symptoms, and, therefore, it's actually a massive positive.

I would point out that is the natural evolution of most viruses.

The new rules for covid due to start on Tuesday is the right thing to do BUT why can’t people do what they are asked and wear a mask while shopping or travelling?  I’ve heard the excuse “ I’ve got asthma” I have that and it’s no problem for me to wear a mask for half an hour or so in each shop or while travelling, it’s just the people who just don’t want to do as they are asked for all our sakes.

But you are only thinking of those who are scared like yourself. 

You aren't thinking of the exempt or those who choose not to wear an ineffective face cover.

Yup - which is what normally happens with these things.

 

Except now every time a variant is identified we panic.

 

it’s also a race to the bottom when it comes to restrictions - so all this stuff about “it’s only a mask when shopping” is the thin end of the wedge when you’ve got people going the pub and sports / social events etc etc.

 

So when the masks in shops thing doesn’t appear to be reducing cases then you can expect those other things to start disappearing again soon.

Yes I’m scared, I’m scared of dying, I’m scared of my loved ones dying but according to your way of thinking, some of the exempt people are not really ill they just don’t want to conform and what’s the alternative  not wear ineffective face masks, no mask and risk catching covid or spreading it.

Please stop misquoting me, I am not a conspiracy theorist, other than I think (know) that the government have tried to scare people as much as possible in order to ensure compliance with their Covid suppression strategy.

How you describe yourself is irrelevant compared to your suggestion to somebody  that they:

 

 "Buy an exemption lanyard if you don't want any hassle."

 

This promotion of the mis-use of the "Sunflower" lanyard for people who wish to dodge their responsibility is just plain wrong.

Not ironic...terrific news if that turns out to be the case.

However as this thread is populated by some who base their thoughts on the exceptions rather than the rules lets just proceed sensibly.

Your words, not mine. 

My kids are exempt. They aren't ill (cold, flu etc) but they are exempt. Do you have a problem with that?
