  1. Agree with much of this page... ...however I'm finding it really hard to be as optimistic after being battered by negativity for almost a whole year. I'm half expecting a new variant to arrive from God knows where which renders the current vaccine as good as useless, and so we'll be in severe lockdowns for most of 2021. I can't allow myself any optimism of normality because ,honestly, I don't think I could cope with it being crushed. Keep thinking the worst, that way anything better is a bonus. Sort of like how I think about City's games in a le
  2. If all adults are vaccinated by Autumn, and at around the same time a tweaked (to account for new variants) vaccine is rolled out to the vulnerable groups currently being vaccinated in time for winter, then you're right. I just fear that if there's a uptick in cases next winter, even if it's just comparable to normal flu season levels, they'll be voices clamouring for lockdowns again.
  3. Cracking stuff. That's 6.35m now with their first vaccine done, plus an additional 470k having had both doses. I expect today's figures will be lower due to it being a Sunday, plus snow disruption etc. Still though, if these figures continue on this trajectory or even hover around the 500k a day mark, the mid-Feb target should be achieved fairly comfortably. I'm still hopefully of restrictions easing around Easter time. By the summer we should be virtually unlocked (albeit with distancing still in place, plus I'd expect restrictions to return winter 2021 as
  4. https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/details/vaccinations 409.855 first vaccinations yesterday plus 2,760 second dose vaccinations. We're on the right track.
  5. Wedding of 400 broken up in East London yesterday - ffs. How did they even manage to arrange it?
  6. I notice the winner hasn't been announced yet... hopefully BBC RL just give in and choose the one everybody wanted in the first place
  7. As I understand it, 0.05% is the rate for people aged under 70. Obviously the overall rate is higher as fatality rates rise exponentially in the over 80s particularly. "In people < 70 years, infection fatality rates ranged from 0.00% to 0.31% with crude and corrected medians of 0.05%" https://www.who.int/bulletin/online_first/BLT.20.265892.pdf
  8. According to WHO data, the death rate is approximately 0.27%. Source: https://www.who.int/bulletin/online_first/BLT.20.265892.pdf
  9. Maybe not mass gatherings, but I'm sure restrictions on visiting family and friends will be lifted.
  10. Must admit that seeing the daily vaccination figures released today (for Monday) has left me feeling very deflated. It never ends, does it?
  11. Slightly lower than 14th/15th. Less weekend capacity? Or supply problems? A good number I guess but was hoping to see the daily numbers increasing exponentially, they seem to be stagnating now.
  12. The statement put out by the Therapeutic Goods Administration above stated 'weeks and months', I'm guessing they based that on pre-existing health conditions. I'm not diminishing the worth of over 80s at all, this is specifically with regards the extremely unwell and frail elderly.
  13. Surely the stupidity of it all is summed up by how close the players are the rest of the time, not to mention marking from set pieces etc. It can't be being proposed to actually keep players safe, probably more to do with keeping distancing in the minds of viewers.
