When will this shit end?

They won’t be rolling out a mass vaccination programme before Christmas, they can barely test and trace 100k people a week. Sure they might be able to get some vaccine out to staff but this is the same government we criticise every day for being useless, front page of the Mail won’t change that. What is said on that front page would be ambitious even for a vaguely competent administration.

they've already rolled out a mass vaccination programme before xmas, for the flu jab. :P 

The covid vax is having new improved plans made so it can be rolled out even faster. It's the one part of everything I reckon our useless govt stand a chance of doing right.

Having said that, whether it can actually be rolled out faster depends on having enough vaccine - which is far from certain, and I'm quite happy for the UK not to put itself at the front of the world queue.

I think on a music festival message board it’s a legitimate question to ask. It doesn’t suggest the OP doesn’t give a shit about anything else. Of course there are much bigger things to be worrie

I can’t get the following thought out of my head and it’s making the old bottom lip wobble: Wednesday evening at the 2021 festival, the sun has been out all day but temperature not stifling, perf

Howdy folks...sorry I'm late to the party! Was in a meeting and could see notifications coming up! So, looks very promising indeed. The vaccinated group not only didn't develop severe disease, bu

Some info of what you should do if you anyone gets the new iPhones:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-54675352

I’ve got one having transferred back to IOS and IPhone 12 from a Samsung S10.

Haven’t had any issues as far as I’m aware with the NHS app but will keep an eye.

Thanks for highlighting.

On an iPhone theme though must admit this phone is ticking the boxes. Much less of a brick than my wife’s iPhone 11!

I’m a big sucker for tech and get a new iPhone every year. I love them, the build quality is too tier. 

I think you should be fine if you went from an Android to iPhone. Enjoy your new phone!

The Mrs is on the Oxford trial, and while we have no idea if she's had the actual vaccine or is in the control group, we have a sense that a) she's had the vaccine, and b) it works. 

This is mainly because she is a geriatrician on a ward (south yorks) where everyone is either Covid positive or their weekly test justt isn't back yet, the infection control is pretty whack due to the hospital being old and utterly unsuited for a pandemic, and docs and nurses (who aren't on the trial) are dropping like flies. Yet, she's completely fine. So, I'm hopeful, if they can ramp this thing up to scale...

Speaking from a personal point of view I find it really bizarre people can be comfortable with this sort of thing.

It’s a terrible idea on every level. It forces people to do more than one shop visit which is bad for Virus Control. It will force some people to shop Online when previously they didn’t know just how convenient it is, and that’s bad for local Businesses. It’s over controlling and intrusive, which is bad for Compliance and Trust. It’s inconvenient for an already fatigued population, which is bad for Compliance. 


This has nothing to do with Science. Once Trust is gone it’s very hard to get back

Its the perfect example of a policy dreamt up in a meeting room that sounded good because nobody actually stopped to think of it’s real world effects.

This is massively logical and sensible. So they almost certainly won’t do it.

Indeed ... as long as they can get the infectious period ... France have already done it so there is likely to be some logic behind it I hope

She came across as a lovely warm hearted person in it. I personally don't think the family should be angry about how she was portrayed & think the quote from the lawsuit was a bit over the top:

"In the legal documents, Evans’ estate claimed that she was “horrified and upset” after learning that the film “was actually a comedy intended to mock the Holocaust and Jewish culture”.

I can see how anyone that is from Khazikstan could be offended by Borat as it portrays it as a backward place.

 

But the other offensive stuff he says is clearly him trying to encourage arseholes to reveal their true self so he can expose them.

Lee Hurst trending on Twitter with his rebellious right wing schtick (I actually quite like LH - I used to go to his comedy club a fair bit - but he's not really helping himself here):

I’m surprised this isn’t already how it’s done. 7 day follow up test for close contacts that test negative is standard practice here (compliance with turning up for the second test is a problem, but two tests a week apart is how the testing strategy is set up). If you can get people back for the second test, it works very well.

Yeah they’ll be all over this.

TTI is expensive, complicated and invisible to a lot of people.

A mass Vaccination program is easier, makes great TV, is a huge easy-to-understand Vote Winner and if a few (insert letter)illion disappear into some of their Friends Companies who will care? It’s over!

It seems really sensible. The Tories are slow to react even to stuff like this that seems pretty sensible and would be popular though.

Don't worry, I'm talking about the pharmacy ones you need to pay for/use a voucher. No reports of Drs etc. running low.

I think part of the problem is having a testing system run by people with little experience in diagnostics
