New ONS figures show influenza and pneumonia have contributed to more weekly deaths than Covid-19 since the middle of June

Probably some truth in that in life generally you have to suffer idiots such has those you work with  especially in these PC times  but once you are free from those shackles you can say what you think it's quite liberating!
AS for the virus lets get on with living but at the same time take sensible precautions .

Yeah spot on. I am 40 now and far less tolerant of peoples BS. If someone gets on my nerves more than i should i tend to cut them off. At 30 i'd be completely forgiving of almost anything.

Can't wait to be 65+!

Two weeks and then a Lockdown?


Further restrictions on the ability of people to mix in social or work settings could be introduced in a fortnight if the so-called “rule of six” does not slow the rate of coronavirus transmission in the UK, according to ITV’s Robert Peston.

Mr Peston said he had been told that ministers had set the time frame for assessing the effectiveness of the measure at two weeks.

He also quoted a leading scientific advisor as saying the government would need to “give serious consideration to a wide range of other measures” to prevent a second wave of the virus if the current measures were insufficient.

If the government don’t sort this shambles that is the test and trace system out then we will definitely be heading towards a new lockdown . They said they would be testing 10 million a day by Xmas  ;D can’t even cope with 200k a day . They are an absolute joke

They wasn’t prepared the first time which you can sort of let go given the nature of it but to not be prepared the second time when theve been talking about a second wave for months is unforgivable.

But saying that flu and pneumonia is still killing ten times more people then covid , covid deaths levels dropped 23% again from the week before and has gone back to early March levels. The overall death rate is 15% down on the average number at this time of year . Hospital admissions still haven’t gone up properly. So surely they would consider all that before going into another lockdown .

People saying that the death rate of Covid-19 as dropped which is good news but they are many people who recover from this awful virus who are left with debilitating health issues. I have heard of one person who I had the pleasure of meeting some time ago caught Covid - 19 in April and is still in hospital.

If we get a 2nd wave of Covid- 19 which seems likely now, hospital admissions will increase and will the NHS be able to cope? I hope I am wrong but I think a 2nd Lockdown is inevitable.

Too many people seem to be focusing on the death rate while completely overlooking the implications of long term rehabilitation.

I was listening to a chap from NHS testing on the radio yesterday and he was describing 2 systems not working together a) NHS, looking after hospitals, nursing homes, social care etc and  b) Private (serco !) operating the lighthouse centres? processing tests from centres on car parks around the country.
 
There are apparently no comms between the 2 and the private "systems" are a total black hole to the NHS teams who have 50 years of experience in this field. The overall impression was one a system in disarray with the need for QR codes given based on post codes at the centre of the problems.

Currently there are around 4,000 positive tests a day which is similar to April’s figure (without getting into false positives etc ) in April around 900 a day were dying WITH covid ( again with covid doesn’t necessarily mean because of covid) now this figure is 11 a day. So a massive difference with the figures. As for long term impacts well since over 85% are no symptoms and didn’t even know they had the virus would suggest there isn’t any however if you had to be admitted to hospital for this like other illnesses it would suggest there would be long term factors. This will only show many years from now
It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you got to have is faith and discipline when you're not a winner.

If there's a plus side to this then at least it's only at certain times of the year. It'd be truly quackers if there were no hunting seasons for ducks. At least groups of kids/adults smaller than seven can feed them all year around.

Ed: by which time they're probably plumped enough to be hunted by the time the shooting season rolls around.

Who on here would report their neighbours if they broke the rule of six?

Our neighbours throughout lockdown held a street party where they all congregated together. They’re all in their 40s plus bracket and social distancing normally went out the window by half 7.

I didn’t and would never report them to the Police but I would find it hard to be sympathetic should they get the Rona.

We may have looked boring but we were safe in the knowledge that we adhered to the rules and enjoyed the sunshine, BBQs and sights of the back garden.

Seen a tweet earlier and now I cannot find it, but pretty much said that CMO is pushing for stronger measures as he fears a major increase of deaths throughout October.

To be honest, I've hit the point where I no longer know what the right approach is.. I'm just fed up of the bleedin' thing.
