Sunak, CRG....

 

But no matter what, if health services are overwhelmed we'll have restrictions so they can keep running...otherwise we're effectively a failed state and the public will punish the govt at the polling booth. Don't think this will happen because the vaccines probably good enough, but it's not as if they won't have restrictions no matter what.

the point I was trying to make are that the Tory party are going to be mostly wanting to open things up .... there arent gonna be many of them that will want things closed up ... it doesnt fit with them

Depends by what you mean by overwhelmed. I dkosee that point but expanding health care capacity is MUCH better option

Given the England game on Saturday and therefore how busy the pubs are likely to be all day, I wonder how many of them will actually be closing this weekend if one of their staff members tests positive? I’m going to guess there might be a few ‘bending the rules’ somewhat.

Do we know what bit of it has been? Is it folks going into each others houses? Or the Tartan Army mobilizing to seize London? Because I thought (the old) COVID was really hard to spread outside? Though I guess they all got together on the trains for hours.

A guy at work said his lad went to London for the match and was fine but his mates who stayed at home all caught it.     

Who knows 🤔

I guess I mean they have to turn away people with other conditions like they have previously for a starter...and I think maybe they are going to have to increase health care capacity...but that comes at a price etc etc

They do that in a bad flu year though. I dont see that as good enough of a reason post vaccines.

yeah...I don't think can say it is just one particular event...going round people's houses or watching in busy pubs probably just as or more risky.

yeah...ok...but I guess again it is how bad, the level of it. Surely there is a point where health services can't cope and you have to find something else to prevent getting worse. I'm not saying it's likely, I don't think it is, but it's not impossible either.

Husband has been buzzed by the NHS app. Not sure how we've got this far without either of us needing to isolate, but he's ruined it now!

Hopefully neither of you get any symptoms. Where do you think it was from?

Just checked mine and it looks like I had the SII naughty one as a first dose according to the batch number.......

(apologies for Telegraph link)

"Up to five million doses of this version of the vaccine have been administered in the UK and are identifiable by the vaccine batch numbers (4120Z001, 4120Z002, 4120Z003) "

Dunno, we went to Bristol last weekend so it could have been on the train or in a restaurant or something (but then I'd expect to have been buzzed too). He did go to the pub for lunch with work mates this week, so might have been that.

We've both had 1 Pfizer, so chances are he hasn't picked up anything and even if he has we should be alright 🤞

Came across this which details a bit of what's happening in Vietnam. No messing around there! Shutting off residential alleyways and apartment blocks, people testing in actual protective gear. 

Horrible to see it so empty there- loved visiting there and these places will suffer so much more than we will from all this.
