Re: Coronavirus

A calm, well-researched article that has a bar chart that shows that deaths, per month, per 100,000 in the UK has been stable year on year for the last few years APART from last April when the number shot up. The second and third waves of the virus have NOT been as deadly as the first. These are fac...

That's what they do in Extremadura, as well.

Re: Coronavirus

Paddy Pumpkin, totally agree. That's how antibiotic-resistant TB has become so widespread.

Re: Coronavirus

I don't know how it works, Lyric. All I know is that our Mayoress, who is a personal friend and we talk English together, told me this morning about the time scale here but I do not know the methodology for arriving at the timescale and the decisions that are made as to who gets the jab and when.

Re: Coronavirus

I know this is incredibly selfish and horrible of me but I am rapidly losing interest in all this because, right from the start, I smelled a rat. No. Wait. That was the Bubonic plague, wasn't it? Anyway, I was reliably informed by our Mayoress this morning that people in my age group 60-69 will not ...

Re: Coronavirus

Big headlines for the UK today. The government is so successful in its vaccination programme they are going to start on the over-70s. Buried in the text is the fact that only 40% of the over-80s have been 'done'. In the Daily Telegraph comments to the story (and story is a pretty good word for it) t...

Agreed. Keep things as they are. Sometimes new information is helpful.

Re: Coronavirus

I agree, Katy. I think, sooner or later, we will all have to get it and get over it ... or not. That's the tough bit — the 'or not' bit.

Re: Coronavirus

Maybe being slow is not a bad thing. With the post about the 23 dead people in Norway and the 240 vaccinated people in Israel now with Covid, maybe the vaccine is NOT the solution? I shall now wash my mouth out with disinfectant ... https://www.timesofisrael.com/240-israelis-diagnosed-after-vaccinat...

Re: Covid Vaccinations Spain

There has been a steady trickle but it is worse now. I think people relaxed and did the holiday fiesta thing over the last month. We have a few cases in the village most of the time yet no one goes to hospital and everyone survives, even the really elderly in their 80s and 90s. So far. I have no ide...

Re: Covid Vaccinations Spain

I'm happy with his stance on the whole thing. He is a forensic doctor by profession and has always seemed pretty sensible. Last night, at midnight, all the villages, towns and cities in Extremadura were closed. We can only leave our village for medical, work or education reasons. Places with more th...

Re: Coronavirus

Just had an update from my friend in Torquay which is close to where my parents live. The hospital is receiving Covid cases from hospitals elsewhere in the country that are full. No mention of Nightingale hospitals. So, people stay at home as advised by the government. Meanwhile Covid people are tra...

Re: Coronavirus

I think it is also about the confidence in the patient in the people organising and administering the inoculations. So far, I think a great many people feel very, very nervous of the whole thing. I don’t mean any of the old discussions about COVID-19. We were told the Pfizer jab needed two doses x d...
