Coach trips to Liverpool, then.  In to the pub, some pork scratchings* and a few rounds of wallop, then back on to the coach. Sorted. 

 

(*counts as a substantial meal on Merseyside......😁😁)

And hairdressers and beauty parlours too!

 

I've just listened to the Government's Coronavirus briefing, and the take away message from that is "Just because you can do something doesn't mean that you should."

IIRC I think that was in response to a question about either using public transport or hugging elderly relatives. 

Whilst I appreciate that nuanced approach, sadly, many with will either misinterpret that or not be responsible.

 

I normally spend Xmas with my Mum, who is now in her 80s, however I have to use public transport to get there....I'm not sure if I want to take that risk tbh.

Let's see who comes out and gleefully tries to destroy public confidence in this vaccine. The safety of the vaccine is good. Even if the effectiveness is 62%,that is still good.

Aside. Whoever supervised the administration of the wrong  dose needs a bit of chastisement. Such a tinsy winsy error could result in the whole of AstraZeneca's empire tumbling down.

Mike Yeadon has spoken out about the virus and how he doesn't think a vaccine is the way to deal with it.

 

Sky news aus was saying a lot more testing is needed for the oxford vaccine and RT news said it only worked in younger people.#

They are still testing  the Oxford / AstraZenca vaccine and the results of phase 3 will be made public next month.  I'm guessing more epidemic experts believe a vaccine is the way forward to deal with Covid-19 than experts who believe otherwise. The Oxford / AstraZenca works just as well in the over 60's as with the 18 plus age group according to the test results so far. I believe what Oxford / AstraZenca tells us more than I believe what RT news tells us.

Mike Yeadon is a bit “unconventional “ though. Wasn’t he the one who was claiming that the pandemic was over? That’s clearly not the case. I don’t think he’s someone to take very seriously.

 

The Oxford vaccine has just extended its trial to try to find out about the half dose thing. We already know it works, we already know it’s safe. We need to find out how well it works. A vaccine at 60% effectiveness will need more people to take it than one with 90% effectiveness.

 

Either way, I’m very much looking forward to the start of the vaccination programme.

Mike Yeadon said we wouldn't have a second wave. RT is mainly made up Putin propaganda.
