IOM Covid removing restrictions


Filippo

Recommended Posts

Headline data is still available for those that want to manage risk according to what’s being reported. The problem of course is that there is still an under current of people not reporting their results.

Having the test volume and working out the positive % seems like a nonsense to me but that’s what the crusty miserable lizards on Twitter seem to want.

I believe that we are at the point where we understand on the whole where it’s appropriate to manage risk and put in mitigations (care settings, vulnerable people). I think that will be with us for the foreseeable future and it’s not a bad thing at all.

The twitter doom lovers are working themselves in to an angry frenzy over it. 

Some of those Tweets are deranged. Do they literally live their lives by the Covid dashboards and the general doom statistics? Some seem really disappointed that the information will be so high level now that people literally can’t obsess about it all anymore.

The disappointment in this is almost palpable. The Simon and Garfunkel of pandemic doom “Hello covid, my old friend I've come to talk with you again … “ 🤪🤪

The whole covid thing has been a battle of minds.  First, to get people on side to do the right thing, and now to turn off the fear.  Which is what many have said for a very long time. 

It is surprising how many intelligent people seem to be completely devoid of rational thought on this.  Yet how many are ignoring the very real, and often fatal, impact restrictions have had and continue to have? 

As we have said, the cure should not be worse than the thing it is intending to cure.

He’s lucky. Some of those Hermes delivery guys didn’t get paid for months during the border controls. Rather than dump his post by his back gate they’d probably of crapped through the letter box of such a lockdown nutter.

That poster is the worst of the lot. Poisonous. Hypocritical too. Ask her how her holidays have been in the pandemic while she's demanding everyone else do what she wants to make her feel safe. On top of that she is thick as fuck. No comprehension of reality at all. 

I am, of course, blocked by her.

She was another one (of many) who refuse to accept that vaccines would do the job, and that everything else is just bollocks, but then there are loads of them. Vaccines work.

I can't be bothered finding an up to date one, but masks etc 'plan B' very obviously don't (see also everywhere else including many with much stricter restrictions that also don't work)

Is she the one who moved here from Ireland and was straight onto MR demanding the drawbridge was raised immediately?

Yeah she's one that stands out for the nastiness of her posts too. Seems very unpleasant. 

At least most of the others are mostly civil.

Why read her posts then... you are under no obligation to do so.  Just ignore and enjoy your own self adulation ...

I don't. I can't. She blocked me. Think she called me a child, can't remember.

I used to try and reason with some of manx covid twitter, but they all thought I was nuts (maybe I am) in pointing the reality of the situation out, and while you may call it self adulation I'd call it simply being right.

One thing I've been wrong about though is that actually even less people are dying from covid than I thought would this winter.
