Watching the traffic out of my front window, there's not much "staying at home" going on.

Traffic, and pedestrians for that mattter, were noticibly lighter round our way today. Maybe everyone was just driving up and down your road to annoy you....

Not that it really matters now but...

England will be joining Scotland as it enters into another lockdown from midnight tonight. 

Boris Johnson has announced England will be returning to lockdown measures from tonight

Although most areas of England are already in tier 4, from midnight tonight pubs, restaurants, bars and non-essential shops will be ordered to close across the country


 

From here (amongst other articles) last night...

Covid conspiracy theorists claim to have found the Covid-19 5G chip diagram. It's actually the circuit for a well known guitar pedal with some labels changed.

I was very disappointed there was no flange or wah wah, just imagine the fun you could have with those in people

Just been looking at the vaccine rollout order - I'm in the last named group, number 9, as I turned 50 in 2020 (what a year to pick! 🙄😂)

 

Has anybody seen any numbers of roughly how many people are in each cohort? I think I heard the news saying that 650,000 over 80's have been vaccinated and they said that was a quarter of that group.

 

It's just an idle curiosity really, to see roughly where I am on the list, so I can guesstimate when I may be getting one.

 

Spent an hour googling away to no avail but wondered if anyone else had seen the figures? :)

Approx 13.5 million in the top 4 tiers which they are hoping to have vaccinated by mid Feb. That’s:

over 80’s already in progress then

1- care home staff and resident

2. NHS frontline staff

3. Over 70s and over 60’s extremely vulnerable

Is any timing or date information available yet for these groups? Even indicative?

 

I have my mother in law with us here in Europe on a visit, who is turning 80 in a few weeks, and the intermixing of Brexit-related (max-) length of stay, and Covid-related logistics, are getting a tad complex!

I'm not sure how reliable it would be. If you look at UK government's promises on testing capacity and compare them to what actually happened then forecasting isn't helpful. My ancient parents are supposed to be getting theirs tomorrow, but they've already heard from friends in the same area that some have had to reschedule due to the vaccination centre running out of vaccine - this suggests supply line issues.
