Re: New coronavirus in/from China

That makes it sound as if an 80 year old has a good chance reaching 88. But is that so? A quick calculation (or Google search :D ) shows an 80 year old has a 30% chance of reaching 90. So 2/3rds of 80 y/os will die before 90 upon reaching 80 (cross out)*. or rather, if you reach 80 years old you hav...

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

I picked one at random. About sleep apnoea, so I thought they have a point. But to be fair it's about increased co2 levels due to impaired breathing. I checked some more, and they're relevant. So what if some are more relevant than others. Or, were published before 2020 and don't mention covid-19. I...

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

I dont think the NHS will ever recover. But perhaps, for some, that's one of the added, positive outcomes of this sorry debacle. In Scotland, click&correct and takeaways have been restricted. No evidence given which is no surprise. Has the data even been collected? Or just ignored because surely...

Re: US watch

Put John Sullivan blm into Google search :roll: We've just witnessed in the UK politicians and media giving the general public a great big middle finger. For 4 years. Not so long ago, Boris was a probable beater-upper of women. A vile racist. He was going to be arrested. :lol: If brexit was stopped,...

Re: US watch

Hypocrisy and double standards are amazingly high. As is the faux outrage. Many people don't like democracy being mucked with. Despite this, some people don't think it's very important. Biden will always be remembered as the president who really wasnt. Trump as one of the better, if more controversi...

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

I can understand the reasoning with the oxford vaccine, but I'd be a bit miffed having the first pfizer jab and then waiting another 8 weeks say. Especially after the three weeks was stressed and the company itself has so publicly come out against the delay. if I were an older person, would I have t...

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

So Pfizer said that it only assessed its vaccine on a two-dose regimen whereby people were given the jab three weeks apart. And "There are no data to demonstrate that protection after the first dose is sustained after 21 days" So it makes medical sense to delay the time between the 2 Pfize...

France's 48 hour ban. That's brexit. Lesson teaching politics, not covid.

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

Isn't at least part of it encouraging a good uptake of the vaccine when its rolled out proper. Probably explains sweden's latest tack too.

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

This is funny. Well I think so anyway. A man from Scotland after being denied entry, due to Covid restrictions, to the Isle of Man to see his girlfriend bought a jetski and went there anyway by sea. He was sent to jail. In other news there is news of a growing Covid outbreak in Sydney, Australia's ...

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

Reminds me of the style, tone, and even content of the sort of stuff remainers gurgitated. Didn't they, or at least encouraged by them, nearly destroy Government and the very idea of democracy itself? Or do I read too many conspiracy sites? :tinhat: What is it with the woke cult? Why do folks become...

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

Hospital capacities have been significantly reduced to make them 'covid safe'. Infection control measures. Effectively making them smaller. I think I heard quoted in a Ni program upto 25% (can't remember, possibly not as high) Reduction of hospital beds, smaller wards etc, and reduced staff. This ti...

I haven't watched the video yet, but looked at the comments.

It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if such a recommendation would come to pass. Not in Scotland or the rest of the UK. Not now. Where the head goes, the rump will follow. I've just noticed I've been edited by someone else! Not just by myself which I've done, but by another person! Nothing majo...
