Coronavirus - Part Two.

Just a small point but Sheffield is currently vaccinating everyone over 75. My Mum was done last Thursday and is 79 with no pre-existing health conditions.

I’m 46 and fit and healthy having exercised 4-5 times a week for the last 30 years, dying from Covid doesn’t particularly worry me as I know the stats are in my favour. However, long Covid does worry me as I know a few people younger than myself who are suffering from it.

Their symptoms vary from no sense of taste or smell 8 months after the original infection to severe lethargy similar to an ME sufferer.

Until vaccinated I won’t look to return to normal and many friends are of the same view, for the sake of a few months I don’t see the point in risking it.

I don’t think anyone will be forced to be vaccinated but businesses will rightly take precautions as dictated by the science to keep staff and customers safe. For example, I can see a situation where you cannot fly without proof of vaccination, or certain countries may ban travellers for the same reason.

No so in Gleadless because my sister and her husband are both over 90 with health problems and they have had no word yet even after phoning their doctor.

Fancypants.

That is sad news. I do hope your neighbour recovers.

Hospitals are doing their best to mitigate hospital transmission of Cov-19.

The link I provide will give you an insight as to what is going on.

I must admit,that the last thing  I want is to be admitted into hospital for anything other than Cov019 treatment.

Watching Look North tonight, they reported that a shisha bar on The Wicker, has been fined for a second time, £4,000 this time round, when  police raided them the other night, following a tip off that a number of people were present on the premises.  This follows a similar raid in November for a similar offence, when they were fined, £2,000.,   I thought the minimum fine for such offences was £10,000?

Police also found cannabis plants at the premises.  

 

In another report, York council has had to close one of their main parks to stop people congregating & not practicing social distancing.  York currently has one of the highest infection rates in the country.  Will people never learn?  (Rhetorical question, as apparently not!).

Footage on the news of hundreds of supporters thronging the streets cheering Marine on as they arrived for the FA Cup match with Spurs today.  No reports of anybody fined. Pictures are around various websites:

How to make the locker stricter? Do garden centres really need to be open? Do takeaways really need to be open? These are Just a couple of examples, I’m sure there are many more. From what I’ve seen these are just encouraging people to go out and come into contact with others much more closely and for longer than they would taking exercise.  

Of course that’s tough for businesses and economy. But the trouble is that while ever we carry on to trying to compromise and tread a middle ground, the less effective the lockdown will be. So the lockdown goes on longer, the economy suffers more in the longer term.

I  have thought for a long time that take-aways shouldn't be open.  Don't get me wrong I like a take-away every now and again but have resisted for more than 4 months now.  I  and my family don't need any more social interaction than is absolutely neccessary.

Exactly the same with my next door neighbour. He had to have a liver op on Xmas Eve. It went ok and he was eager to get home but was told he'd need to stay there and be on intravenous antibiotics for 4 weeks. He was transferred into the GI ward but after a week or so everyone in the ward tested Covid positive. 

 

Take care. Hospital is the last place you want to be.

Should footballers be fast-tracked for a vaccine?

Not bloody likely!

Much as I like my football, there are so many players totally ignoring Covid guidance and rules and being bad examples to others that I'm all for closing it down until Covid is well and truly under control.

Just watched the news.  Reporting that Celtic flew away last week for warm weather training in Dubai.  Now one of them has tested positive for COVID-19.  Technically, all those who travelled, should now go into self-isolation. 

 

The club reckons they were given permission to travel, despite current Scottish restrictions but there's an impending argument with the Executive & their game against Hibs tonight is in doubt.

Hope they get sorted soon, looking online it seems Gleadless surgery is due to start early February which seems really late compared to the other areas.
