IOM Covid removing restrictions

hospitalisations are actually increasing, as are deaths, but they always lag behind.

 

 

In very small numbers.  In a heat wave.  Pretty much everything you hear or read is about people ending up in hospital because they are taking relevant precautions in the heat, end up in hospital, and might turn out to test positive.

The negativity is worrying.

I do agree that this is leading to lots of repetition on this thread, a battle of opinions if you will (either for or against) the last two weeks have been especially bad.

It is not negativity, it is reality. 

All 6 in hospital over here with Covid, were admitted because of Covid. 

The numbers are low, let's hope they stay that way!

Currently seeking permission to move wrighty and BenFairfax to their own thread "COVID discussed needlessly complicated for the IOM situation with stupid numbers and forecasts" because to be completely honest I. AM. FUCKING. BORED. 

More so Fairfax boring me rather than wrighty, as he makes some fantastic points regularly. 

This Fairfax kid speaks extremely clever when it comes to numbers. But then when he tries to make a point using...you know...WORDS AND LITERACY. He sounds like an absolute plantpot.

You haven't just been watching "A Beautiful Mind", have you?

That doesn’t relate to what I head about those in Hospital.  Is there a way of fact checking or have I missed something?

What he wanted to.

Kelly Broomk, Jenifer Anniston and Nicole Kidman have all been involved in a minor accident on a trike and are suffering from mild aches and pains and are look for an inexperienced, middle aged , balding bloke to help with massages?

This is what the new normal looks like in Liverpool. Packed high street and few to no masks in sight. Restrictions went down on the 19th right? Either this will continue and all is well of everyone here will drop soon. Tune in next week to find out...

And today's bulletin from the Wonderful World of Manx Government Maths:

'Investigated cases':  3758 - 3592  = 166 (Increase in cases)

Active cases: 2474 - (2308 -  (1280 - 1280) [Recovered]) 

                        = 166

Official new cases = 168

This is the first time for nearly two weeks that the new cases have anywhere like agreed.

The increase in tests again seems low (95,308 - 94,636 = 672), and below capacity.  This gives a daily positivity rate of exactly 25%.  For comparison today's figures for Malta are 94 cases from 3136 tests or 3%. They're doing fewer tests per head of population and yet have a rate the tenth of ours.  But despite slightly fewer active cases in total (2262, though I reckon we have 'recoveries' that aren't taken into account) they have 39 people in hospital from them rather than 6.  This just doesn't make sense compared to anywhere else in the world.

Typo - 39 in hospital in Malta not 19

Because no two places are the same.  So many variables.

Vaccinations. General health of population. Average age of population. Healthcare. Mitigation measures. Average life expectancy of population. Diet. Ethnicity.  Even the current weather conditions, rain water levels for sanitation etc.

Which is why we can only look at and worry about what Is going on here and to some extent the UK.

We should all know many more people who are really ill.  There should be more in hospital.

It might not make sense to some but it is (at the moment) and was predicted by others.

Why no just be grateful things are going in the right direction rather than almost hoping it all falls apart to prove a point?

Todays iom figures are great news.  One more short hospital stay finished for someone due to vaccination and advances in treatments hopefully.
