IOM Covid removing restrictions


Recommended Posts

When he says 250k to 1 chance of getting blood clots is that the actual chance of dying as a result or is that just the chance of blood clots occurring? It's just that he also said there's a 35k to one chance of this happening from taking the contraceptive pill. I can't believe that's the chance of actually dying as a result. Or is it?

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

And a follow up question: Do those numbers relate to dying of a blood clot or dying with one?

7000 UK citizens booked to arrive by plane to UK from Pakistan before deadline on Friday. (just reported in Independent.) Gosh!

Apparently it's lovely there at this time of year.

Howie also indicated non essential shops could reopen next week but instead changed that to just hardware & building merchants so B& Q etc, it’s just ridiculous and shows the negative brigade are holding sway still 

It’s quite clearly not in the community.....again in reality nothing has really changed 

1. Kids of key workers instead of secretly being looked after in the nsc will now go into school

2. B&q which you could shop on line and collect from you can now go into....

3. Teachers go in on Monday to prepare for the next week.....of normal school...pretty sure they don’t get this luxury normally, so you can guarantee there will be next to no home schooling going on.

 

apart from that we are all still stuck in our homes being told it is doing us a favour, and then we are back out like normal from 19th?hmmm I’m not sure keeping us locked away for another 9 days is really going to change the land scape of things it just makes the figures look less....

it’s all granny farming the other day he said non essential shops like fabric shops I can think of two on the island and I don’t think I have ever been to one....so why does he bring that up as a good example?  Because he is pandering to a specific demographic forgetting that he is screwing over the people that will have to pay for it all

He probably understood it but chose not to answer! Usual diatribe and then unanswered.

Re the 'clots', Paul M asked when the people who cancel, when will they get another chance? No answer!

Yes, DA said you will not be prioritised if you miss your vax.  PM asked what did that mean, going to the bottom of the list?  In reply, DA said everything except what it meant.

Did not understand why hardware shops and not, say, furniture shops or bookshops?  Just seemed very random.

Agree , no real logic behind it that I can think off .

Could the reason be that if we open up the retail sector too soon we may overwhelm the track and trace teams in trying to identify where and how any new cases are coming from ? Just a suggestion but maybe they should explain the rationale for it as that would help.

Do you think there is a bit of megalomania going on because I cannot understand what difference selling hardware is to selling fine bone china or shoes  or frocks.

........as has 99% of all decisions taken by our parish council and the Johnson regime over the past 12months - no logic, evaluation (aside from unquestionable advice from the 'trusted' purveyors of total disaster) and no rational thought. 

I can see through my COVID tinted glasses that Waterstones and Millichaps will be the festering hotbeds of COVID production; I can just see all those little viri spewing out the doors and windows.

Possibly, but for a week?

Trying to get my head round your last sentence Gladys.

I listened to it and my understanding was that DA said if you choose not to have the vaccine and subsequently want to do so you rejoin the queue. Seems fair enough to me.
