This is a tragic story and I'm sure everyone reading this feels sympathy for the man you described and anger at the CVT for the changes they are bringing in.

A man from my village contracted Covid last Tuesday.
41, two young children, self employed tradesman.
Died this morning.

The numbers seem a bit more real when someone you know dies.
This is also a tragic story and the family and friends of this man has my sympathy.

BBC is reporting that early results from Scotland show both vaccines are reducing hospitalisations by between 85 and 94% 4 weeks after {presumably} 1 injection.

If confirmed then the NHS should be safe from overload in a month or so, as we win the race between the vaccine and virus variants.

Hopefully the vaccines will be partially effective against the new variants, sufficient to control numbers until modified vaccines are available.

I think this shows the gamble to delay the second injections has really paid off

Bullshit.

Let's have the link then.

Hospitalizations were already lower than the spring of 2020, as were deaths. All of which were only marginally above any other years in terms of mortality by all causes in any event.

However, this report I take with a large pinch of salt.

The PCR test “is unable to determine, beyond reasonable doubt, that a positive result corresponds, in fact, to the infection of a person by the SARS-CoV-2 virus”, said the Lisbon Court of Appeal.

Public Health England is reporting that they haven't detected a single case of flu this year and puts it down to covid restrictions and an increased uptake of the flu vaccine. What effect could this have on excess deaths?

yeah...right

"Covid restrictions" have restricted the flu but not managed to restrict Covid.

People like you, on the back of a year of relentless fearmongering propaganda, have lost any capacity for even the most rudimentary rational thinking. It would be laughable if you weren't f***ing life up for those of us who are not morons.

I really shouldn't "poke the troll."

I was only reporting what I had read on something published by supposedly more intelligent and knowledgeable people than LJ and I and I am a moron. I glad that we're not ruled by angry people like LJ as we would be subject to all sorts of deprivations for being morons! If he was a Moslem he would be on a watch list by now.

Thinking about it those more intelligent scientists are probably being paid by the face mask and hand sanitizer companies to keep up their elevated sales over the next few years. Now there's another conspiracy theory to theorise on.
