Quote from: Thursday on June 01, 2021, 08:38:47 AMWell I'VE had both doses, so I'll be fine. No possibility of anything going wrong for me. Maybe everyone not fully vaccinated should go back on lockdown. And old people just in case. Keep all the shops open for me, but don't allow most people to go. Very severe punishments for people that do.
Quote from: Shoulders?-Stomach! on May 31, 2021, 11:07:57 PMWill be interested to see if they do keep stuff open if cases get high but bed numbers and deaths stay lowish (let's say below 2000 hospitalisations per day and below 80 deaths a day).I don't really think people know what is going to happen.
QuoteRobert Dingwall, professor of sociology at Nottingham Trent University, said "critics" who have suggested that the June 21 easing should be delayed "can't even agree on what delay they'd like".He told Times Radio:By the time we get to June 21, everybody who is in the nine priority groups or the highest risk will have had both jabs, and would have had a period of time to consolidate the immunity.What are we going on with is really running into younger age groups who are intrinsically much lower risk. Many of the scientists who've been talking over the weekend simply haven't adjusted their expectations to understand that - (for these people) Covid is a mild illness in the community.As the Director of Public Health Bolton was saying last week, the people who are going into hospital... it's not like January, these are not desperately ill people.They're people who need a little bit of extra support with oxygen, they need access to the dexamethasone treatment, which is very effective.They go in, stay in hospital for three or four days and they go out again. There is no realistic prospect of the NHS facing the sorts of pressures that it faced in January and February. And that's why I think we have to we have to push on with this.

QuoteWe have this very strong message which has effectively terrorised the population into believing that this is a disease that is going to kill you. And mostly it isn't. Eighty per cent of the people who get this infection will never need to go near a hospital. The ones who do go to hospital because they are quite seriously ill most of them will come out alive – even those who go into intensive care. We have completely lost sight of that in the obsession with deaths, the human interest stories about deaths, the international comparisons about death rates, the opportunities for intrepid television journalists to put on lots of PPE and go into high tech where people are acutely ill. All of that helps to create this climate of fear...
