  1. Apologies if it's already been mentioned but Bryan Adams is doing Eden Sessions on 29th of June
  2. Do I have to wait until 10 am for the Glastonbury channel to appear on iplayer or am I missing something? I can find all the sets and shows manually but looking at that lineup I assume there’s an actual channel somewhere?
  3. I can't overstate the seriousness of putting someone with covid into a care home, it's a death sentence, multiple times over. Put them in a nightingale, put them in a hotel, put them in 10 downing street, I don't care where, you can't send people who possibly have covid into a care home. My understanding is that this did happen though, and many people will have died unnecessarily as a result of this choice.
  4. You can't isolate in a care home. It's a poorly ventilated building full of extremely vulnerable people sharing care staff. One case of covid in a care home will go through like wildfire, infect and kill many people. There is no way people should have been released from hospitals where it was rife into care homes without testing negative. It is an absolute national scandal if Hancock knew untested people were being sent from hospital into care homes, if he lied about it he should be facing criminal sanctions.
  5. But the unvaccinated are the young, and they're already unlikely to be hospitalised
  6. If vaccines reduce the chances of spreading it by 90% and then of those 90% fewer infections it reduces the chance of hospitalisation by 94% are we really at risk?
  7. Yet you accuse everyone who disagrees with you of being a troll. The lack of self awareness is impressive.
  8. I'm not trying to act smart I'm trying to educate you on really basic principles. The R number is variables, that's literally the whole thing, it's a bunch of variables and some backward calculations. You can't find an R rate in DNA. If we change variables the whole model changes, you can't re-calculate an R number using two points of information and it's laughable that you're attempting to do so.
  9. There isn't a natural R rate though, that's the thing. The R rate already takes factors into consideration, it's a maths solution not a biological constant. The R rate for the Kent variant was 4 in England, with our population and our million other variables.
  10. I've always taken herd immunity to mean a limit to how quickly/far the virus will spread, rather than meaning no-one will get it and it will die out, not sure if that's the general understanding
  11. Not sure that's how it works. From wikipedia: " is not a biological constant for a pathogen as it is also affected by other factors such as environmental conditions and the behaviour of the infected population. values are usually estimated from mathematical models, and the estimated values are dependent on the model used and values of other parameters. Thus values given in the literature only make sense in the given context and it is recommended not to use obsolete values or compare values based on different models.[25] } does not by itself give an estimate of how fast an infection spreads in the population."
  12. Rage had a Glastonbury gap last time too.
