Another 50000 cases, what’s going to happen when everyone’s had it?

 

I find it odd that our mutant variant is leading to such a dramatic increase in "cases" everywhere in the UK and all at the same time.

 

Now surely, surely something untoward is at play here?  There's no way that's a natural increase.  

 

Source of the data here has been taken straight from govt figures also.  No misrepresentations here.

I think this is a stupid question lol...

 

 

If someone tests positive on day X and then tests positively again in the next few weeks after that, does that add as another positive case to the daily tallies we see or not?

Why would anyone want football to be stopped? It’s the only thing currently to look forward to come the weekend. A bit of normality, something else to talk about instead of hearing about fvcking covid every hour of the day. 
 

@Harrydc I’m sure if football stopped again for 4 weeks you’d then start moaning about how footballers don’t have to play matches but supermarket staff still have to go into work. 

I'm not against footballers playing football. It's more the fact of we have to be locked down, then so should they. 

 

Yes I know it's petty.

Any further covid experiences? Mild or severe cases? 

 

As an nhs (not frontline) worker I'm hoping to get my vaccine(s) before this new variant inevitably gets me, I still get anxious about what it'll be like (the virus not the vaccine).

They are locked down but they can still work.   Just like people in factories did, just like supermarket workers did, just like people who work in petrol stations did.

If there is a full lockdown people can still go to work. Football is their job.

I disagree. Where things can operate safely they should do. Work, football and exercise. Plus football is probably contributing to the economy in some way anyway with all of the TV deals and what not. 
 

Fact is we simply can’t just shut down, the economy is ****ed as it is, a complete lockdown again would probably damage it for a very long time. And football certainly offers a release, I think I can speak on behalf of most on here that the footie has been a god send, and days like today make it just that little bit easier to face the shit that’s going on around us thanks to those boys in blue. 
 

Plus psychologically it acts as an indication that normality will one day resume.
 

 

Out of reactions but I'd +1 this if possible!

 

Agree with all of it. Especially the psychological point. Football was a release for me anyway even pre-COVID. Either playing or watching. It goes without saying it's not anywhere near the same as actually going to a match to watch us play, but the fact we can still watch from home for now is great because there's something to look forward to. And as long as it remains to be played in a safe way (yes I know there's lot of breaches recently but for the most part it's fine given the volume of testing they do) then it should carry on.

They’ve been few and far between, theres probably been more incidents of people breaching the rules at my work then there is amongst the footballers. 

Yeah maybe, but are your work mates shagging hookers? Lol

Wouldn’t suprise me if he put everyone other than London in tier 3 so they open other little bits up and then say you can keep schools open now 

But nowhere wants schools open at the moment and rates aren't coming down enough to justify going in to Tier 3 for everywhere else :dunno:?

Why would they relax restrictions when the new strain is still running rampant down here and will soon be doing the same across the whole country ......

I don’t think it’s in good shape. But it is probably okay I’d say, another full scale lockdown could be disastrous. My work place have a already said if they are out in a position where they have to furlough it will pretty much end the organisation, projects would have to be stopped again etc. Some areas will thrive others would suffer badly.

I ask because my Mrs works in the private sector and they seem to be doing very well. 

 

I don't know too many folk who are living off the state wholesale.

I think it's got more to do with loads of people meeting up inside over Christmas.

Do you think it's plausible for the huge surge in positives to happen in such a manner UK wide and all at the same time?

 

Something here isn't right.  

 

Many people are questioning the cycle thresholds of the PCR.

You’ll find out within the week - if the numbers entering hospital don’t increase then the increase in positive tests was questionable...... a pretty consistent percentage of positive cases requires hospitalisation within 7/10 days of being infected.

Furlough is propping a lot of people up, without that we would see wholesale redundancies, people’s houses getting repossessed etc. 
 

The furlough cash needs to be paid back somehow, the tax rises will see cuts in spending which is probably cause issues.
 

it’s bad.

How the **** did we get into this situation knowing how bad it was going to get in the winter. How are we seemingly totally unprepared for this. 

The prime minister was hopeful of normal by Christmas remember. 

 

I mean this was going to happen regardless of governance, however the timings and manner of lockdowns and have been handled much better in other european countries.

Perhaps this might be the stimulus the government need to start making companies pay tax accurately.
