Apart from the huge influx of spending in our local pubs and restaurants, promoting and supporting cultural events and venues, bringing a diverse outlook.

And let's not forget staff directly employed (or contracted ) by the universties - lecturers, technicians, admin staff, catering staff, porters, cleaners etc etc

 

 

Back on topic - hospitalisations increasing rapidly.  Ouch 😬

The government has been clear for months that school and university education would get the highest priority for being open, and that other sectors would have to shut down to compensate for the infections this would cause.

I suppose this is why they are known as the snowflake generation!

Not true if used correctly. You should never touch the mask. Only touch the attachments used to secure it.

Bit of reality, my youngest son who lives in Nottingham (potential tier 3) came to Sheffield (potential tier 3)  came to visit today. He met his brother outside for half an hour and  then came to see me in my garden. It felt really odd because I don’t know when I’ll see him or the two of  them together again. I’m in a support bubble with my eldest son so can have indoor meetings but, as he only has weekend contact with my only grandchild, I can only see her outside-time limited at this time of year. Contact has been problematic with Family Court exacting an order several years ago. Covid 19  is being used as an excuse to terminate contact despite regulations but access to legal support and Family Courts are also affected by Covid. I feel my small but very close family is being torn apart by the pandemic

Jeremy Corbyn breaks the COVID-19 rules AGAIN! 

 

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8849075/Now-Jeremy-Corbyn-breaks-rules-memorial.html

 

Just days after apologising for attending a dinner party that broke the 'Rule of six' indoors, Corbyn attended a ceremony that broke the rule of not being part of a gathering of more than 30 outside. 

 

When are we going to see fines issued to high profile individuals that would help send out a message?

Its a funeral that is limited to a maximum of 30 people. This looks like a celebration afterwards, which would result in a large fine for the organisers, not those attending.

Is anyone sticking to the rules anymore

Most people don't even know what they are...the rest don't care.

How can anarchists be organisers 😎

 

That the number attending bust 30 was likely totally accidental.

A rumour I heard from a fella I work with who's relative works in the industry (convenient that init?) 

 

The trial vaccine that was being developed by Oxford that we heard about all them months ago is being looked at for a license once the human trailing is complete. It's allegedly being backed to the point where it's being manufactured and stock piled

 

Personally I take that very very very very cautiously but something like that wouldn't surprise me. Updates and information regarding the vaccine trials is out ther but we never hear anything at all about it. God forbid we have a bit of hope amongst us

The "rumour" has been in the press. It isn't a secret.

 

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/coronavirus-vaccine-oxford-university-cases-trials-latest-b1016739.html

 

"The UK has ordered 30 million doses of the vaccine, which is already being produced ahead of its expected approval. "

 

Sincerely hope it works.

AstraZeneca, who are manufacturing the vaccine, and Oxford University will need to ensure that they are covered against litigation resulting from any unpredicted adverse effects. The development of any pharmaceutical product normally takes far longer than is being allowed for this vaccine due to the numerous safety tests, clinical trials & submissions for approval.

South Yorkshire mayor has been in talks with government Friday and over the weekend. On Friday’s Question Time Dan Jarvis gave no indication on how the region would respond to the application of tier 3. ie follow Manchester or Liverpool. Either way it looks as though many of the major cities in the North will face the severe economic  consequences of the tier system. So much for Boris promise of levelling up
