IOM Covid removing restrictions

There is a possibility of a lockdown for good reason, and people go out and party while they can. I suppose it just shows the attitude a lot of people have towards the situation, like those that bend the rules and look for loopholes. Like that cunt Cummings.

Who?

OK. For what it's worth I'm going to try and explain why genomics is important in a ssRNA virus epidemic. No doubt it will end up being recited badly at a briefing, but, well, whatever. You read it he

February 1st, just before the pile on from the usual suspects to suggest we were both talking out of our arses and NO WAY was another lockdown inevitable.

We cannot control this pandemic by 'luck' and the luck we've had up till now is running out.

It's only "inevitable" if people keep soiling themselves of a few covid cases.

It would be far more constructive if people started to get used to the idea that covid is here to stay.  Rather than living with this deluded eradication ideology.

I do wonder how some people are going to function in future.

Hardly anyone in uk 🇬🇧 Is sticking to rules, visiting families, meeting in parks etc and numbers are still falling, 

There have been figures released that over 40% don't stick to isolation rules.

The results speak for themselves

That's because a lot of them have had it, aren't getting tested, have died or have been vaccinated.

But they've paid the price of being in a purgatory of things being a bit shit for the past year.

We've been effectively as normal since June, with a brief 3 week interlude for January.

Most of us are quite attached to our Grannies, and I'd rather pay the price of a few more months, than put them all at significant risk of death.

The elephant in the room is that things will open up with widespread vaccination, but until that point, nothing in our situation has really changed. In the meantime, we can either be like Guernsey or Jersey, where restrictions have endured much longer and been much stricter.

Or, we can suck it up for the remaining months with the summer to look forward to.

How could they have released it earlier  if they didn't have the relevant data to hand ?

 I think the process needs to be looked at, NYE the announcement went out around 11:55pm, now 21/2/20 an announcement goes out at 11:30pm, the information is pretty much a copy and paste job with only the location, date and time changing. I’ll be very surprised if the labs are only sending the results through at say 11pm, why is it taking so long to return results?

It’s not worth locking down for 3 weeks to have 2 weeks of freedom, they need to change strategy.

But that is the plan surely? Protect Nobles through eradication until all the vulnerable plus quite a few more are vaccinated. And then when the UK opens up, we get to a point when we can start to open up.

Of course Covid will still be around after all that and thousands will still be dying from it annually (possibly 20k plus in the UK - given 11k die annually from flu).

Given the numbers (from a wide range of places) that could arrive here after the borders open e.g. RoW business, TT etc. and occasional RoW variants arising - and taking into account the percentage not willing to be vaccinated and those that can't - there is still a likelihood Nobles could still get overrun occasionally post 'pandemic'. Contingency will have to be built in for that.

But it would be stupid to let the disease run rife currently - until we have protected as many of the vulnerable as best we an.
