  1. Well, there is some good news...The FDA didn't allow Trump to bully them into approving a vaccine before the election, and have stuck to their guns on the minimum required safety data before they will grant EUA for a vaccine (this is good, no room for complacency on safety). This puts a timeline of end of November for that authorisation at the earliest. The other good news on that front is that both the FDA and the EMA are reviewing trial data on a rolling basis (rather than waiting for a scheduled interim analysis) and this moves things a fair bit quicker as well ( @stuartbert two hats , you

  2. In exciting news we have a new eFester, my daughter born with her hands in the air (above her head, both of them) like she just don’t care, at home on Tuesday morning. Mrs Blutarsky was an absolute hero in labour and it all went as well as we could have hoped. I am a Dad!

  3. Can we not say "I'm hearing" unless you've got a credible source for it – just reading it on Twitter and then spreading it around doesn't help anyone. I see it a lot in this thread and it starts to get really murky when rumours start flying around.

  6. If you imagine the pyramid field jam packed and 35 of the people in that crowd had covid - the chances of you coming into contact with them is really slim isn't it? (I know they would give it to others but this is just an example to conceptualise just how many people 100k is and just how slim the odds of coming into close contact with one of 35 people is) That's in a confined space if you think about a normal day at the moment and how many people you come into prolonged contact with the chances of getting it with numbers like that aren't worth losing sleep over.

  16. Would agree. I also get the sense that they are waiting to see how the deaths play out before doing anything substantial. Most of the places that have had a genuine second wave have generally not seen the death rate bounce back to the same level as the first wave. I’m sure the understanding of the virus and treatment options have helped massively but I’d also suggest that the fact that some countries did such a poor job the first time around in protecting their citizens means that those most vulnerable are already dead by the time the second wave arrives. It’s still a rubbish strate

  17. Good news is that my daughter came round earlier to inform me that I'm going to be a grandfather and I couldn't be happier. She's had a shit year because they were supposed to be getting married in August and have postponed that until next August so it was lovely to see her looking so happy.

  21. Worth a walk up Burrow Mump as well, it's like a baby Tor with fantastic views. To be followed by a pint in The King Alfred at the bottom of The Mump. Ace beer and food right by the river Parrett. Not far at all from Glastonbury and in the middle of The Levels.

  24. The mighty Arab Strap considered Central Belt as a name when they were starting out. Mogwai's "best of" collection is called Central Belters. It's like you don't have an encyclopedic knowledge of Scottish indie bands of the 90s.

  30. This is the article: In new government guidelines, saunas and steam rooms have been given the go-ahead to reopen after more than six months closed. On average such facilities account for 40 percent of revenue for spas, although according to the UK Spa Association, this figure can be up to 75 percent. The UK has over 900 spa and wellness businesses, which together generate £2.1 billion and employ 45,000 people. Although popular, massages and facials are classed as ‘add-ons’ in spa settings. With many customers booking in for spa days without treatments, until now many businesses have

  34. I don’t think it would be possible to completely shield the vulnerable, there would always be some spill over. But you could definitely reduce the number if vulnerable people getting the virus through a shielding programme. It would reduce the number of deaths but not completely minimise it. Regardless, I’m on the view that herd immunity is unlikely to work because this virus will probably end up being cyclical like the flu where you catch it once then you’re immune for a period of time then you catch it again and so on. Long term realistic best case is probably a vaccine that will

  38. Exactly. I'm not saying don't take it seriously, don't follow the rules etc... But if you are sensible, you can have some sort of life. There are some frustrations, like I aired myself over the weekend. I just think there needs to be some sort of context put around these numbers. It's 200 and something cases per 100k where I live or 1 in 1000. At the moment I probably stand within 5 metres of a handful of people a day and that includes collecting a child from school - the odds are stacked in my favour. If I catch it I catch it, it's not going to be through recklessness on my part,

  40. And if you stop their cancer treatment, they'll definitely die. Surely taking their chances of maybe getting covid is less dangerous than the guaranteed death sentence that is pulling the plug on cancer treatment? Stop defending Matt Hancock.

  41. As one who questioned the refund policy I felt I should write and say well done to Ticketmaster on the refund. I applied for the refund yesterday morning and received notification of my full refund payment from PayPal a couple of hours later. No bother whatsoever. Really slick process.
