Re: New coronavirus in/from China

Secondly, I'm providing some balance to an often unbalanced thread. This idea of needing to provide 'balance' is deeply problematic. I'm not specifically thinking about Covid but public discourse in general. This really came to a head a few years ago with the BBC's coverage of climate change. They,...

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

No, the tone and content above is markedly different than that used in previous remarks. This pattern has repeated a few times now. --- Valid concerns and criticisms about the vaccines themselves and the wider strategy of roll-out exist. These concerns are being intentionally linked with certain &qu...

Come now Adam. It wasn't much of an insult and he deserved it. And he still won't stop me posting.

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

the feeling of normality is due to a combination of vaccines being taken by at-risk groups, at-risk people continuing(& now in habit of being) to be cautious, the summer, and media and crowd-in-general shifting focus away to other things. Nope not a word. Your name is not Gerald by any chance? ...

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

Is that it? I choose not to get a covid vaccine so I'm an anti-vaxxer. Why not quote when I said I would advise people at risk to get it? I had many reasons to decline. Doesn't make me an anti-vaxxer. You might think me a dangerous super-spreader, variant-factory plonker (I'm not sure the science su...

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

I'm not sure how temporary they will be. The restrictions were crude and damaging, and even baseless at the time (eg. not allowed outside). Also unnatural. But it's largely moot. There WAS a pissing competition going on in the thread. The idea of the gray-man and 'riding the tiger' has a lot of meri...

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

Public Health England's (PHE) said initial findings suggested "levels of virus in those who become infected with Delta having already been vaccinated may be similar to levels found in unvaccinated people". https://news.sky.com/story/covid-19-delta-infections-produce-similar-levels-of-viru...
