I've just seen that Chile have been largely using the Sinovac vaccine which is not said to only have a 50.4% efficiency rating.

Might explain why their cases have risen again after opening up compared to Israel which has used the Pfizer vaccine. 

Ties up with a Chinese official who was ‘ miss quoted’ saying their vaccine may only be 50% effective ...

I’ll give it six weeks and the pubs will all be shut again. Just drove past my local and it’s rammed outside,  no distancing whatsoever

You can drink outdoors all over the city, it's safe outside says Professor Chris Whitty, let's hope it's damn hot!

Apparently we're close to approving the Johnson and Johnson one dose vaccine. I think once we do, we need to give that to those under 40. That way they are done and out the way and can concentrate on carry on giving the second doses to the old and vulnerable.

J&J supplies are very low after a balls up at a factory, but this is a good suggestion. It’s causing wild symptoms after dosage. I’m 26 and it was like having bad flu symptoms for 24hrs after getting it.

Been out tonight for a few and it was so good to see lots of people out enjoying themselves.

Pretty gutted that the 3 pubs in my local area haven't bothered opening until May. Probably because they are run by Stonehouse and Beefeater. 

Quite a lot of that happening. To be fair, after what they've been through, they have to make it financially viable.

 

The furlough scheme is still running, so hopefully the staff are OK and managing.

 

Who knows what will happen in the next few weeks, it isn't beyond the realms of possibility that they'll be ordered to shut up shop again, costing hundreds or thousands in beer that'll have to be thrown down the drain again.

 

I completely understand the caution.

So why did they shut down all the outdoor stuff in the first place then.


Because it’s easier to enforce what goes on outdoors than what goes on behind closed doors and they were being ridiculously cautious.

 

I hope any future enquiry comes down hard on the government for shutting kids playgrounds and banning outdoor sport though.

Might it be because when it was a brand new disease that they knew nothing about, they didn't know whether it spread outdoors or not?

This is true but they knew the risks were absolutely minimal this lockdown but persisted. I suppose the issue is not just about the being together to play the sport but the temptation to then socialise thereafter ....... they were doing everything they could to minimise R given that they were committed to re opening schools and the expectation that this would have had a more negative impact on cases than it turned out

So they are now advising people to get tested in London because clusters of the South African variant (scariant) have been detected. They drop this news the day after pubs open, massive surprise there then.

You just know the BBC are hunting for the expert who says ' the only way to avoid another lockdown is to stay in lockdown ' Then Nicky Campbell in his smug horrible voice with go 'yes you may be right '
