I do not think that some people realise the danger they are putting themselves and other people in. The other day at Gleadless Townend there were 5 women, I would say in their mid 50s/60s in a group about a foot away from each other and none of them were wearing masks. I do not care if they catch covid-19 but it is the poor souls that they could pass it on too.

Indoors or outdoors? If they were outdoors, very little chance of transmission.

Ah!

The great world authority on everything, Mr.Blair, has spoken...!

His idea is to vaccinate as many young as possible as according to him its them that are the main spreaders of the virus. Its seems he and others really don't seem to realise that having a vaccination for covid only protects the person vaccinated after some time and does not mean it cannot be spread on after being vaccinated. He also wants his old idea of a ID card system resurrected because of covid.

He's a (failed) politician, and even (failed) politicians like to spout rubbish, especially if they've been out of the public eye for a while.

I did try to keep politics out of this.

 

A study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine,  found that vaccine efficacy between the first and second doses was 52%

So anything over 50% would mean vaccinating with one vaccine would be befeficial, although 2% over 50% is perhaps not worth the effort. But 2% if its 10 million people is a lot of people helped, perhaps other vaccines will be ready soon.

Pfizer vaccine is only licensed in the UK for use in the 2 dose scenario.

Blair can go whistle.

I am led to believe that somebody with the virus entered Antarctica and there are no test facilities for anyone entering the location ?

New variant causing concern, even more transmissible.

Before you say "We know"....no. This is another.

Stemming from South Africa.

Anyone who's just been, and/or knows anyone who has, is "requested" to quarantine immediately.

My bad...

This is a reference to the inaction in the first wave, not the chaos of the new one.
