IOM Covid removing restrictions


Recommended Posts

Totally agree with happy diner. we are now fighting a war against this virus. Can you imagine soldiers saying “ sorry general we can’t fight today, the paper work has not arrived and by the way we only fight on three days a week “

OK. For what it's worth I'm going to try and explain why genomics is important in a ssRNA virus epidemic. No doubt it will end up being recited badly at a briefing, but, well, whatever. You read it he

If we have 20 ICU beds thats great but have we? I mentioned something to Wrighty about increasing from 6 our capacity and he said is was not that simple, need very specialised staff to run them so unless they have taken on about 100 extra specialist staff to man these 14 beds I think we are stuck with 6. or 8 at a push.

I really would love to be wrong on this by the way, I would sleep better.

We have stock. It's in the freezer and the fridge. He even told us this. We had it before Christmas. Are you David in disguise?

So it’s being distributed in a safe and controlled manner, what is the issue? It doesn’t matter if it’s done over 1 day or 5 days only the same amount of people will receive the vaccine. Perhaps you be asking why people aren’t turning up for their vaccinations despite being booked in and other people are queuing up to get it?

Nothing to do with PHE. Its NHS Supply Chain who supply us. They must be well chufffed we are sitting on 85% of what they've assigned, so far.

It is Public Health England who are responsible for distributing the vaccine and arranging for it to be couriered here.

Ask the people who missed it, dies it indicates a different approach?  Ask them when they are booked in if they want it?

Isolate incomers and test at scientifically proven points before you release into the community. We should have been doing it months ago  particularly in light of the infection source next door. It needs to be getting set up NOW.

The same as we should be pushing ahead with the vaccine roll-out. I can't believe the Courier headlines, "Vaccine Roll-Out Can't be Done Faster".

You'd think with what's happened over the last 48 hours or so there'd be a sense of urgency..... but no, this is traa dy liooar at it's best. Quite unbelievable.

I'll go with that.

Considering what we are playing with here, there should be no charge for a procedure, the result of which could affect and cost us all - like now.

The whole regime needs tightening up though. Obviously.

Just look what we've lost.

Charging is just a way of discouraging people coming to the Island. It's ridiculous because it's built a two tiered system: the rich Vs the rest. It's not a surprise that both the Chief Minister and the Health Minister are massive Conservative fanboys. They probably don't even realise that's what they've done.

as usual MF is factually incorrect, nobles may have 6 beds but there's contingency for at least 14 more if required, it was well publicised during first lockdown that the theatres can be adjusted to ITU if needed. I think Wrighty on this thread said as much.

But hey let's go for the sensational instead of the actual truth.

20 still isn't very many. If they have to start using the contingency then expect the speed limit to drop again.

There are very few of them. Most are pirates who I wouldn't piss on if ablaze. 

Why pay some for advice when all they say is a citizen of one country, live in another country and put your assets in a 3rd country.

@jaymann Hope any people who moved to Jersey did not put granny into a Jersey nursing house, since another one is seeing an outbreak. 2nd wave got to 25 dead, and was thinking yesterday get to around 30, but likely get few more with from new cursing home outbreak.

Managed suppression strategy does not work, you cannot have a little bit of something if it exists grows exponentially. Elimination particularly for places like IoM which can control importation of disease is only viable option. Regarding business, even if did not have restriction now, I cannot imagine typical mature HNW gent rushing down now to talk face to face with a tax adviser.

The vaccine is optional not mandatory.

Yes, I get that, but people should be asked if they want it as it can be offered to someone else.

Not brave enough to say it on fb but hey on earth are the co op giving their end of day sandwiches to the police.

They have virtually nothing to do, and are still on full pay and pension.
