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

I'm planning to stay up as long as I can but doubt very much I will make the whole night! 

I’m going to go to bed early and set an alarm for something like 3am then camp on the sofa to watch it all unfold. You should do it that and we can watch at the same time!

Their ‘smoking gun’ this year seems to be the Hunter Biden sex tape/pictures that got released yesterday, although it’s completely backfired on them as most social media has stopped it’s spread due to it essentially being revenge porn, and the mainstream media hasn’t picked it up because who gives a shit? Conservatives are trying to spin it as child porn, which it clearly is not, and also Hunter Biden isn’t his dad, so where’s the real controversy? 

Still wouldn’t be foolish enough to call it a lock in Bidens favour, but it’s certainly looking good right now, and will hopefully be enough that Trump can’t spin any bullshit on November 3rd about mail in ballots.

I’ve not even come across that 😂  madness.

Do you think we should be concerned that not enough people will voluntarily take the vaccine? Reading comments on articles and on Twitter, the majority opinion seems to be 'I wouldn't take the vaccine given it hasn't been tested nearly enough'.

I would but I don't think I could manage to get to bed that early... Will see how I go. I've tried to keep the day after as free as possible to give myself a bit of leeway!

I’m on a Night Shift so will be up from 3 until 8 anyway.

 

Not sure we’ll get a result though.

For saying that a vaccine might not be available this year?

of course, but they won't be going to jail.

More for the actions in March at the start. They were very clearly advising a herd immunity strategy and we didn’t pivot to population-wide social distancing until 16th March, significantly after most European countries. It will be very easy for Johnson and Cummings to pin the blame on the advisers and walk off scot free.

I don't doubt that Johnson will pin the blame on Handcock & co.

But you said they'd go to jail. Which is fruitcake land.

We didn't pivot until that evil Neil Fergusson told us too.

Anyway, they are advisers...they don't make the final decisions. I'm sure there will plenty of blame being thrown around...I mean you could chuck some at Johnson for not bothering to go to cobra meetings or boasting about shaking hands with everyone at a hospital or that's we'd soon send the virus packing in 12 weeks or whatever it was or for not sacking Cummings for breaking govt guidelines and undermining public trust from then on etc,.

@Toilet Duck Sorry for what might be a stupid question... But it just occurred to me this morning and I don't know anyone else that would even begin to be able to give any sort of informed answer.

If viral load is important in determining severity and I have Covid and I'm wearing a mask am I not increasing my viral load by constantly breathing it back in? 

Granted if your positive and you know that you shouldn't be going anywhere where you need to wear a mask. 

Just a random thought I had while having a stroll before work.

Which brings up an interesting point. Ferguson’s model advised suppression through the means of “social distancing of the entire population”, which was implemented on the 16th of March. Hospitality and school closures came later that week, but the full lockdown wasn’t until the 23rd. The full lockdown was basically implemented because the Mother’s Day weekend proved that we as a population could not be trusted to perform social distancing voluntarily.

the full lockdown was inevitable as soon as hospitalisations started to skyrocket. 

And it would have happened sooner, but Spaffer and Carrie had an important social event on the 21st March.

Wasn’t Spaffer playing with a Russian violinist by that point anyway?
