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

Got my jab next tue ... 😀

Fuckin hell, that list of names right there. When you see then all together like that, it really hammers it home.

Fuck me

65 million people and they're the top 10 names we can come up with??

Maybe we should be incentivising bright people to go into politics...

Cancellation and business interruption cover is one thing, but good luck in finding a company willing to insure for communicable diseases for the forseeable future......

Not to be insensitive at all, but outside of care home residents and breakouts in those settings, how come so many 85+ are still being admitted to hospital? 
On the basis that these won’t be going out to work etc, and we are all still in a lockdown so there is nowhere for them really to be visiting. I would like to think people aren’t visiting their elderly relatives in person at this stage of the pandemic with the new strain still so rife.

Are some picking up the virus whilst getting out getting the vaccinations do we think? Or are they coming in with non-Covid issues and then picking it up whilst in hospital? I can’t think of any other explanations.

How many 85+ people do you think can cope in daily life without at least some sort of support from family or care providers? Be it care, cleaning, washing, food shopping etc. It's the main reason why the whole 'lock down the vulnerable/elderly only' argument doesn't work.

or carers taking it in seems more likely ... lots of agency being used to cover the home where my friends aunt and other friends mum are ... and now have it .... they still haven't sorted this protection ring around them 😞

Of course - hadn’t really thought of that! Naivety on my part as my family members who were lucky enough to make they age were more or less self sufficient right until they passed, but obviously appreciate this isn’t the norm or the case for the majority.
