Man-Covid

Well we know that men are more likely to die from Covid than women so it's not unreasonable to think they might suffer more from symptoms.  What's interesting in these Manx figures is that women are more likely to report symptoms (72%) then men were (65%).  But it's also a bit unusual that there are slightly more men testing positive than women (53%-47%), in most statistics I've seen it's the other way round.

Anyone here watch the PGA golf each week from various idyllic settings around the States.

Fully opened, crowds everywhere, mixing, drinking, socialising.

Its the same in hockey stadiums, concerts etc.

Is their vaccination programme so far ahead of the U.K.’s in terms of % doses administered? I read at the beginning of June they (adults) were about 50% first dosed, 40% double dosed.

Why are we so risk averse - genuine question.

Boris Johnson has just swept the board in local elections, is opening up the U.K. on Monday & has Covid effectively beaten.

Boris to confirm this week the U.K. will open up fully without restrictions, June 21st.

Quite the party that day.

U.K. motoring along nicely & the 21st June is the day. Everything open, zero restrictions.

Looking forward to watching them jetting away on their holidays, hugging their families, drinking in their beer gardens & visiting all four corners of the British Isles.

The U.K., Jersey & Guernsey populations will be happily moving around Europe by June 1st

Not a clue.  Nor do I have any clue how these decisions will impact our lives going forward.

Indicators at the moment are that COVID is now much less of a threat in the UK and on island than a bad flu season is due to the vaccine.

Much less of a risk than smoking, drinking, or even being over weight.

A guy nearly died playing football and doing exercise live on TV last night.  People die on sports pitches fairly regularly.

Where does this new incredibly risk averse world leave us now a precedent has been set that we stop travel and wear masks to prolong the lives of a tiny number of people?  It’s insane

Main stream social media.

Get rid of televisions, radios, newspapers and the internet and the risk aversion will drop dramatically.

21st May could and should still happen.

Oh ok. Not according to The Telegraph:

Quote

The Prime Minister will tell the country on Monday that the latest data on the spread of the Indian or delta virus variant means it is too risky to go ahead as planned. A four-week delay would mean pushing the date back to July 19.

Well if that happens it just shows how pathetic people are and that the whole vaccine thing was a waste of time.

I am no conspiracy theorist but this makes zero sense anymore.

Cases are increasing in young people who are not then becoming seriously ill.  Who cares?

I haven’t seen any data to suggest everything needs to be out on hold.  Nothing.

We are at the point now where if they got back to normal and stopped reporting it and testing  no one would even notice it was out there any more than flu.

This is because if the current levels of protection both naturally and from vaccination.  I am not suggesting we didn’t need to take precautions last year.

I don't know about any of that. But my post was more focused on childishly pulling @Nom de plume's leg for her crazy bullishness :) .

There needs to be stats about the people contracting covid. Are they generally people who wear masks and keep to social distancing etc. or are they covid deniers who refuse to wear a 'face nappy'. 

It's a genuine question and I feel it needs to be asked to understand the virus. but such matters seem to be some sort of irrelevancy in our tick-box stats.

UK recently.  Masks where compulsory but no where else.

Didn’t use hand sanitiser once.  Must have hugged/shaken hands with over 50 people (including some from Bolton!!!!!)

was in loads of houses with loads of groups.  Often more than are “permitted”

Four of us, so multiply risk by 4.

All fine
