I believe some people are being offered taxis in order to get them to their vaccine appointment. I don't know what the criteria for it is, certain age, certain mobility issues, what time your appointment is or how far the vaccination centre is maybe. This will allow people to get to appointments at like 11pm-6am.

 

 

Someone also mentioned the supply is the issue not the 24/7 vaccinations, which is true, but the sooner we get more people vaccined the better.

Any idea of how much of the vaccine that we can physically manufacture per day/week?

No idea mate.

 

Looks like they've stopped the numbers of vaccine stocks we have from being published too.

 

'Nadhim Zahawi, No10's minister for Covid-19 Vaccine Deployment, and bosses of drug firm AstraZeneca said they couldn't put numbers on the vaccine deliveries because of 'national security'.'

Haven’t half noticed a rise in the fear factor this week.A lot more effort being taken to keep apart.Starting with a trip to Tesco’s on Sunday,where everyone seemed a lot more considerate.To being at work where the awareness has definitely gone up 1000%.

Maybe this is partly due to this week's news bulletins, which have showed quite a bit of footage of what it's really like inside Covid-19 hospital wards. Let's hope that the keeping apart message will soon be observed by all footballers, some of whom are still getting far too close, especially when celebrating a goal. Even if they themselves are all clear of the virus, such behaviour sends a very poor message to on-lookers.

I know there's been talk about the age of people going into intensive care, I've heard it on the radio and also in my workplace, 'they're filling up with 20 and 30 year olds now' was one quote. I've just tried to do some research on it and found this article from a couple of days ago.

 

'In intensive care, the average age of Covid patients in the second wave is 60.2 compared with 58.8 in the first wave.'

The runner is valid but I always question the motive when the guy just carries on arguing for the sake of it. Supervisor was right - take care around groups. Just get back running. 
 

I know I’d be pissed off about the time I’ve recorded!

Infections seem to be on a clear downward trajectory now which is good news. This week was always going to be the worst for deaths with Christmas.

Just to add, the death toll is slightly misleading (and it’s always been the case) that it’s deaths recorded in the last 28 days. The highest death toll in recent days for an exact day is in the region of 850

In which case, I could imagine the death rate may remain fairly high until mid feb with a fairly sharp decline happening through the rest of feb.

The death rate will really drop off once we're all dead.

And despite everyone being dead and everything, I think we can all agree that its super duper news that the death rate is now nil.

 

We have finally triumphed over this most deadly of viruses whilst unemployment AND furlough are at an all time low of zero. Well done us!

Will Gavin Williamson still force kids to go school when they're dead?

Baffling minister for education - seems to have an open hatred of schools and teachers and little to no empathy for children. 

 

I'm not sure I could do much worse if I tried.

Whilst acknowledging your original point in the first paragraph, 60 is still surprising young, at least to me. I know when you’re 20, someone aged 60 seems very old, ready to die at any time, and should probably be measured for a coffin, but when you get there it really doesn’t feel like that.

 

Also, if that’s the average, it does mean that there would be quite a few people younger than 60 to balance all the older lot.

I think the key thing LL was getting at is that the narrative in the media has changed.


There was a suggestion that it was affecting younger generations significantly more now with the new strain than it was before, but based on those numbers that doesn't appear to be the case.
