  1. 1. Following the Oxford Vaccine news will it go ahead?

    • Yes - I 100% believe
      43
    • Yes - I think so but not close to 100%. Need to see how the roll out progresses.
      158
    • Maybe - I'm 50/50
      87
    • Unlikely - Even with the latest news I think it's unlikely to take place
      79
    • No - The vaccine news is great but I can't see 200k people being allowed at Worthy Farm in June.
      67

We really need an updated version of this graph to see if the vaccine is working.

Graph below is reproduced from the Twitter feed of CEO Homerton Hospital Hackney and shows covid patients by age group 31 Dec 2020. It records 87 patients 65 & over against 81 under 65. Note sadly the disparity between age groups for covid patients in itu,

the reality is that there's no need to cancel yet because it can possibly go ahead.

But hey, if I wanted to make stuff up like you, i'd say it was definitely happening. 🙂 

It might with Ashton Gate vaccinating the mythical 110,000 per week.🙂

Is there any way of finding out what % of these patients are in ICU because of Covid vs how many of them are in there for something else and then happen to also be positive, especially for the younger demographics? For example, my friends grandma went into ICU due to sepsis, but then also tested positive for Covid. She unfortunately passed away due to the sepsis, but was nonetheless recorded as a Covid death given she had tested positive within the last 28 days.

Unfortunately no. It is no doubt many patients presenting with Covid also have pre-existing conditions such as cancers, lung disease, COPD, diseases of the heart, liver or kidneys, diabetes etc. Such diseases become more common as we age and for many become life limiting. For these people acquiring covid puts an additional burden on the body and can hasten death. The thing is though many of these people would normally survive for months or even years if they had not caught covid. Finally with reference to ITU, it is more likely that patients in these units are specifically ill with Covid as patients with severe life limiting conditions are less good candidates for the therapy.

Not sure if I had missed this but UCL have asked students to stay away:

 

https://www.ucl.ac.uk/news/2021/jan/changes-teaching-term-2-view-government-guidance

"We want to be honest and transparent with you about the decisions we are making. Our current and most realistic assessment is that it is unlikely that case rates will have reduced sufficiently to allow students to return to campus before at least mid-February, and quite possibly the end of March."

Students aren't coming back this academic year unless they're on an essential practical course like medicine. 

Teaching usually ends mid-May i'd be amazed if they are back by then.

My two daughters are both back late January early Feb - Liverpool and Newcastle respectively. I'll boot them back out of the house by then, believe me. One is already back in student house, other going back on the 15th (hopefully).

I don't have the timestamp or direct quotes, but caught Mel B being interviewed on 5 Live whilst on a drive and she was saying its such a shame that events like Glastonbury are cancelled this year. When the interviewer pointed out that Glastonbury hasn't yet been cancelled her response was very direct- "no it has, they've announced it today." Second person to let something out of the bag including Macca...?

 

If anyone has the ability to find time stamps it must've been around 3.50pm.
