I've heard that all restaurants are closing from Saturday...?  eeek:

Somebody else has suggested a hard lockdown and mass vaccination in a week...  eeek:

Official announcement tomorrow at 11:30....  scared2:

The idea is surely they delay until a vaccine has been deployed.

noooo: noooo:  shoot them?

I thought the idea was to squash the Sombrero...?  rubschin:

The truth is that there is no correlation between the severity of  NPIs and the death rate... Anywhere...

Yet we are heading back to yet another Lockdown in the hope that it will work this time... ::)

Just as aside I note they show positive test and death rate as so many per 100,000. If they used percentage it would be 0.0243% and 0.00002% of the population respectively. Not exactly scary.  rubschin:

I make it 0.0002% per day death rate but your point is essentially true that lockdown + vaccination has got our death rate right down (and as/more importantly the hospitalisation rate). 

Just like they were in July last year before the eat to help out initiative etc blew it right back up again.  We have to hope vaccination has squashed it for good.  Still only half of Brits here have had a jab.

Cyprus death rate at ~3 a day is (only) about 7 times ours per capita, it's their infection rate at ~1% every two weeks and growing that isn't good at all.

This is not going to end well..  noooo:
You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe
