Where have you seen stats which show 50% of the world has been vaccinated? 

"The World Health Organization (WHO) had set a target of 10% of the population of all countries to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 by the end of September. However, more than 50 countries failed to reach that level of protection.

The WHO is now pushing for 40% to be vaccinated by the end of the year and more than 70% by mid-2022."

The world isn't anywhere near 50% vaccinated - not even close.

IMO it's also important to call out misinformation, such as 50% of the world's population allegedly being vaxxed when it's clearly untrue and pulled from one's nether regions. 

It actually seems pretty accurate.  Our World in Data gives 49% for example.  You're forgetting that some of the most populous countries such as China, India and the US have vaccination percentages above that.  Of the most populous nations only Nigeria seems really low.

I have no idea why we are still persisting with these silly border controls now if it is rampant throughout the community. Have we created another army of jobs now for the public purse such that it can't be tamed? 

Allow travel from any region that has fewer cases/100k than us. Sorted.

(Or just any region in general, I don't think it's making a real difference at this point)

It’s a control thing and governments like that . I think sadly that passenger locator forms are here to stay. Daft thing is you can put any old address in as no one checks. That is how stupid governments and their idiot rules are. That Grant Shapps nut has to be the next sacked I hope. Shortly followed by Boris who really is a numpty of the highest order. I don’t mind rules , but they have to be logical , sensible ( and enforceable ).

“The world” for most brits is Europe, North America, Australia and anew Zealand.

They have a habit of forgetting that the vast majority of the worlds population don’t live in any of those places.

I can’t vouch for the total accuracy of this but it is thought provoking.  Bizarrely the teens and younger in our immediate family accepted it and the oldies said “rubbish, that can’t be true”

Its from 2016

 

That's a really good use of 2.28 minutes of your time.

Thanks.

So how is the investigation going to find out who dumped the Lateral flow tests ?   I have been told delivery drivers get paid per delivery, obviously not the P.O. so who else was delivering them ?   I have heard an interesting story but will the official investigation ever disclose the truth of the matter or will this go under that very lumpy carpet.   It was disclosed today that it cost £95,000 up to now to fund deliveries, obviously online deliveries and possibly bulk deliveries to chemists and other outlets it did not give a a breakdown.   The actual cost of the tests were a fraction of this amount.

There's really not enough about the importance of transmission in what we're doing. Throw your mask away to save the human race.

I know it makes sense. However it seems a strange thing that it's good to catch the disease to reduce the chance of you getting the disease. 😕

The only thing 'special' about this virus is that we had never met it before. Normally it would be a relatively benign infection because you'd have had it 3 times as a child, giving you the necessary protection for when you are older. All the vaccine immunity has been about recreating those conditions quickly. 

Of course, if you try and explain that kids are supposed to get infected you open yourself up to tons of abuse for wanting kids to die.
