    Victoria has a much better covid mantra: ventilate, vaccinate, virus detection.


    Beckham?

    Shouldn't we be commenting that the windows are all closed?

    I had noticed that. I'm also getting annoyed that someone in the building where I teach is already closing the front doors, despite it being really mild and hundreds of unvaccinated children using the building. I can't get my head around what they are thinking.

    It is a bit "Three R's" though isn't it?

    How about "Space, Face, Hands" - just something I came up with all by myself.

    Except that two thirds of it is virtually useless, and it doesn't mention ventilation. Apart from that, I'm sure it's worth a few million £ for your extensive efforts.
  • I'm still in favour of "Don't share air"

    But the new policy is seemingly all about getting kids infected before the winter, so not sure what you'd sloganise for that.

    Maybe "get your boosters" because we're all catching it anyway now it's only killing a few hundred every week?

    Well the printing contracts are all signed now so we are stuck with it.

    It's been averaging 1000 a week for while. Is 50000 a year an acceptable rate?

    If the alternative is no more socialising...yes?

    It's over 1000 a week in excess deaths too.

    Though I guess if it goes on for 12 months, that'll be the new normal, so not excess.

    Needs to go on for 3-4 years to get rid of the old data.
    Has to be good for the NHS budget in the medium term getting rid of all these unhealthy folk?

    I have always thought that 200 a day is acceptable as that is about 10% of all deaths

    think of the actuaries there tables are looking much better as it has lowered life expectancy.

    No I am not joking as the combined saving is probably in the hundreds of billions

    There may be more in that than you could possibly believe.

    Oh god this is such total bollicks.

    Elsewhere on the BBC (inside science) they are reporting a French scientist has found an extremely close genetic match in a bat virus in China, looks like it could be non pathogenic in humans for a prolonged period, until a relatively common block of RNA is transferred from another virus.

    This prolonged non pathogenic circulation in humans would perfectly explain why it went from nothing to well adapted and pathogenic so quickly.

    It could be this, or alternatively some evil Chinese people.

    Whatdya think is most likely?

    In recent weeks, that article is from 4 months ago 😂

    "US sportswear giant Nike and US retail giant Costco both say they are facing product shortages and delays due to global supply chain problems.
    Nike said production and delivery of its shoes would impacted until next spring, as it struggles with shipping issues and a worker shortage in Asia.
    Meanwhile, Costco has re-imposed limits on items like toilet paper.
    It says customers are stockpiling again amid Covid fears
    , but it is also struggling to ship goods to its shops."

    Some people never learn....
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Perhaps some people need to recalibrate their SPD (sheets per dump) habits.

    Now, this is interesting (to me anyway 😉).
    The BBC have hidden the report. Maybe they don't want to be blamed for panic buying.

    Unlike fuel this is a global supply issue.

    If anyone has young kids I'd be looking at buying their Christmas presents now.
