What data needs to be blind here? Is there a study where people are being injected with a random variant?

It's in order of when they were first identified, isn't it?

Almost certainly, but difficult to tell as that data isn't in the chart. Because they aren't in any other obvious order (alphabetical, numerical, transmissibility, colour, etc.).

I am absolutely certain there was at least one day last summer when no Covid deaths were reported. I remember it, because some cunt on twitter (one of the usual ones) was braying about how "you wouldn't hear anything about it on the mainstream media".

It was pointed out to this dickhead firstly that it was reported, and that it had since been revised because some people had, in fact, died on that day, but hadn't been included in initial reporting - because that always happens.

Cases over 4000 yesterday with testing down on last week. Yet Johnson doesn't think we should delay 21st June or bring back masks in secondary schools. Not getting my second jab until late July and am worried about travelling by bus to work if the mask and distancing requirements are reduced. I've already had alone bus driver let so many people on the top deck that people were sitting two to a double seat.

If masks and distancing are scrapped on the 21st June  , I wouldn't feel confident going into non essential shops until I've had my second jab and I'm sure a small minority will feel the same.

It's really worrying seeing cases shooting up these past few days and the government once again being so blade about it. Less than 50% of adults are fully
protected.

Maybe Johnson's off writing another book and so isn't paying much attention to COVID again.

On public transport and in shops I’d say the number of people not wearing masks is now up to 30-40%, probably due in part to both the “end in sight” mentality of the media/government and the summer heat. Nice to have another hearty whack of misanthrope coursing through me these last few days.

Delaying 21st June is gonna totally fuck the few industries that have been pretty much completely closed since March 2020 so I struggle to see it happening, but if that week coincides with a week or two of shit weather we're gonna see an absolute explosion in new cases.

Too much reopened in May all at once and happening alongside a patch of really shit weather didn't help things.

Do you use the bus? If the windows open I'd advise opening as many as possible when you get on. I dont know what you can do with trains.

On bus today around midday and went to near the back as there were a couple of people without a mask at the front.  Back of the bus nearly empty aside from a group of girls on the back seat, half of them unmasked, who I think were going for a shopping trip Opened the windows near the back and sat about three rows from the back. Group of girls on the back seat, half of them unmasked, who I think were going for a shopping trip (talking about Primark), one of them creeps forward a few rows and slammed the window next to me, when I turned round she started laughing and hid behind her hair. I reopened it as soon as they had slammed it closed and they started talking about how they would close it as soon as I got off. They then slammed the other back window closed giggling talking about how they were cold. It wasn't hot but it wasn't freezing cold. As the people without masks had got off I went further forward where the windows were open on both sides and heard them slam the other back window as I did so. Windows were open on the rest of the bus so having the back windows closed wouldn't have made them much warmer.

It really angers me how some people just don't care about being in a pandemic and slam windows closed because they were cold. Maybe if they'd all worn masks I wouldn't have felt the need to open both windows. I didn't think it was worth saying anything because they clearly don't care about other people.

Just cannot understand people who can't let the bus be properly ventilated. Even if you can't wear a mask, at least let the windows be open. No wonder we are seeing cases rise so rapidly with people like that. Just fucked off really with people like that. And there's not a lot you can do so they get away with it.

Sorry, I know this thread isn't just for ranting but at what point will the wider population take this seriously again?

Since Tuesday's headline 0 deaths, the media have, by and large, stopped reporting on deaths at all which, if folks at my work are anything to go by, makes people think that the deaths have simply stopped and that everyone going into hospital is coming back out again. I had to search to discover that, in fact, 12 people were reported on Weds, 18 yesterday and another 11 today. 41 people dead with no fanfare at all. Still, Boris had his second jab, so everything's fine.

We're back to people thinking "it's just the flu" again. Young people saying they won't bother with the vaccine as it can't kill people under 30. People over 30 overconfident with just the one dose. We're in really dangerous territory again.

Gone from thinking 'Happy to wait the twelve weeks for maximum efficacy from dose 2' to more of a feeling of 'GET THAT BASTARD IN ME, STAT!!'. This Delta variant doesn't seem like it's pissing about, does it?

I fully accept that a second dose is vital. Shame I can't get it until the middle of next month, if I live that long.
