New cases in the 70+ category, most of whom should have had 2 jabs, seem to be rising relatively more rapidly than most - cases have roughly trebled in the last couple of weeks. Are they just taking less care, or is there a more serious, underlying reason? Is the effect of the vaccine wearing off?

It is probably that since schools are out, more grand parents, etc are baby sitting.

Does anyone know where we stand with the current hospital capacity? 

I asked Ashford and was told the red line would be 30 in hospital + 6 ICU. But that was a month or so ago. 

Just interested to see how we're progressing. 

Haven't you got anything better to do?

No they don't. Not even close to complying with any international standards. The PCR certificate isn't even formatted to a single page. Maybe that's why they made it editable... 😔

The question was rhetorical. I raised digital secure passes with Ashie in March.

Well that was a lie as we only have 6 ICU beds.

They claim that they can make more (ICU BEDS) and maybe they can but they don't have the staff to man them.

The islands hospital is, as I have said before on numerous occasions, not fit for purpose.

Just hope you never have to use it for anything that is life threating.

Regarding the vaccine wane I attach below, from:

Royal society judgement in central case natural immunity last a year (versus 3 years for vaccine), so unless kids vaccinated they will likely go through the same process in a years time.

I am concerned about rise of 70+ cases and as you say nearly all 2+2, the total number 70+ active COVID increased by 10 today. Really not good, everything should be done to prevent this group from becoming infected during this wave. In terms of reaching herd immunity a notion implied from SEIR Model there is no advantaged in additional infections of 2+2s.

For anyone still wondering where we're going, and what living with it actually means, here's a short 7 tweet thread explaining it in really simple to understand words.

 

 

So true. Thanks for sharing. 

Mesages like this the Government and responsible media should be sharing.
