Cut out the sarcasm on my post.

Ok.  No, it's not possible to still get a chest X-ray at the Hallamshire.

 

Do you believe me?  

 

Better phone them and check.  It's the sensible thing to do.

You would think that being in lockdown that the Government would be monitoring people coming into the UK. According to the link below, people spoken to by the newspaper who have arrived here have not had their temperature taken or  been quizzed about forms they had filled in.  Is it any wonder we are in such a mess.

Sounds to me like the passengers are saying, "this is a joke, we might have Covid!"  Errrr, yeah, so why did you fly then?

 

And is it essential for the Mirror to have it's hacks at the airport questioning people?

 

I'm also pretty sure that the UK is a Covid-hit country.

Other countries are not just letting people fly in, however it seems that  anyone can come, to the UK. It was the same back in March people were flying into this country including several flights a day from the USA, Why are we in a lockdown yet people are allowed into the country?  I read yesterday Peter Andre wanted to go to visit his elderly parents back in Australia but Australia will not allow him to.

When the public inquiry happens, I think the open borders policy, & lax Covid rules will be highlighted and interrogated.

I've been listening to LBC a great deal during this pandemic, & people from the world over ring in to say what their policies are.  Some South Asian countries (I forget which ones) demand that people entering the country are mandated to have a test. If positive they are taken to a hotel where they are locked down for two weeks, and CANNOT leave the hotel. 

 

You would've thought that our Government, who got an 80 seat majority, by stressing the need to 'get Brexit done', which was voted for largely because people wanted much stricter control of our borders, would've been alive to this.

 

But apparently not :huh:

I don't know. 

 

Why weren't they tested before they flew?  

 

Why is it essential that the Mirror sends people to the airport to ask?

So your mother in law is a UK national aged 80 but currently in the EU? If it helps, of my parents my mum is the youngest at age 85. She is due to have hers on the same day (tomorrow) as my dad who is 91. Dad has underlying heart condition which is well managed, otherwise healthy. Mum has high blood pressure. People of the same age in the neighbouring borough got theirs about 2 weeks earlier, so there is disparity between areas (possibly different CCGs)

Exactly right, besides being a S-postcode resident very near Sheffield, and many thanks for that follow-up post, Delbow

 

Looks like she'd be getting vaccinated very soon if she was (back-) in the UK. But then, looking at the news as well, she'd also be (back-) under a severe lockdown , when we are actually relaxing measures here from next Monday (...not that I actually agree with that much, but well...). what to do, what to do, <sigh>

 

At any rate, we'll continue efforts with the insurer, the Consulate and I've pinged our GP here as well.

The vaccination seems to be a "hit and miss" affair. 

 

My mother who's 95 with health conditions and living totally independently hasn't had the vaccination nor word of when/where she will receive it.

My mother-in-law who's 97 in a care home with no health conditions whatever is receiving the vaccination this week.

My partner's parents, same age as mine, are also getting theirs today and tomorrow, in a different area again. So it certainly seems that phase 2 is well underway here. But yes, lockdown until the end of Feb probably. Are you in France? Cos Macron seems as clueless as Johnson on Covid.

Care home residents are among the first to have it, your mum should be close behind. It does seem that some areas have been quicker out of the blocks than others.

I have had both my injections, the last one today. I think it is what Delbow says, it just depends where you are and what your surgery is like.

No. And not really. Macron is not Merkel-good on Covid, sure. But he's not Johnson-bad, by a country mile (besides not actually being in executive charge: that is Jean Castex).
