This is becoming a very uncomfortable place. People come here to share information, not barbs.

Mods, how about locking this thread for 48 hours or so.

Thank you

Lastly, rather tasteless of you to link to a subreddit where people celebrate the misfortune of others.
There was no celebration, I linked the Reddit post to show her tweets on Covid-19. If there were people in the comments who celebrated her death, I do not support them.

I'm worried sick about many people back home who believe this rhetoric and well it seems on this forum too. It is dangerous

It's when the groans start flying that you know certain characters have begun to understand they have lost the argument.
take comfort wherever you can, you can, you can.

First verse;
When everyone has gone to sleep
And you are wide awake.
There's no-one left to tell your troubles to.
Just an hour ago
You listened to their voices,
Wilting like a river over underground.
And the light from downstairs
Came up soft like daybreak,
Dimly like the heartache of a lonely child.

Re: Coronavirus

Blueangel thank you for you kind reply.

But it's true how 1,5k pages were all about "let's be scared of the virus ,we're all going to die"

There were 3-4 people who'd try to bring another point of view they got bashed big time . Me , I tried once in january I felt like an eighteen-wheeler truck hit me I think that's why even some great ladies left like Terrifisch and that other one and they seemed really great . So think about it

It was a much nicer thread at the start, it’s become disgraceful now in my opinion.

It’s turned into one giant point scoring pissing contest.

Canton Zurich gradually closes it's vaccination centers or converts them to test center because of lack of demand.
That's no surprise, given that the jabs planned for July any August are half of what they were in June, probably May as well.

However, if the falling number of jabs administered was due to lack of demand the number of jabs available but not applied would shoot up, which they don't. Hence it's supply, perhaps demand falls in tandem but that's largely irrelevant at this point because there's not more available anyways.

There is not problem with supply, the problem is with demand. Everybody who still wants to be vaccinated can arrange it on the same day.
This is the current state. The surplus today is pretty much the same as a month ago, and may be just as temporary as last month.

The outlook based on the reservations may well be different, but that's a different matter.

Re: Coronavirus

UK - 52,000 today.
That’s gone from 30,000 to 50,000 in 5 days.
Should be 100k by next Weds at this rate.

Not sure why you were thanking me - unless you appreciate sarcasm.

Hospital numbers due to COVID are currently 2000 and are doubling every week.

It's clear mortality will be really low in this wave. No more than typical influenza figures, thanks to the vaccine.

Herd immunity coming pretty cheaply (not freely i appreciate).

Switzerland gets to check the uk is ok before copying.

What absolute twaddle!
In the early days, there were huge chunks of info shared in this thread. I particularly remember a post Tom / st2lemans made that I had cause to repost a few times because it was so important.

How I felt at the beginning of the pandemic is a million miles away from how I feel about it now. I'm very rarely ill and wanted to catch it early doors so that I could go out and help people who were vulnerable. I honestly believed I'd shake it off in a couple of weeks and be right as rain. I was against wearing masks because of the risk to people wearing them incorrectly.

But then I had to shield my partner. People I knew started being hospitalised, admitted to ICU and dying. That changes your perspective. So forgive me if I don't tolerate reading the same crap that was being posted by deniers 16mths ago. It's old hat and has been proved wrong at least 4,087,371 times.

I don't think there is any other way out unless you want to keep restrictions after bribing people to get vaccinations.
That will go down as well as pretending BREXIT vote was only advisory & should be ignored, the electorate won't be taken for fools.

It's absolutely nothing to do with the electorate and brexit. It's a lot to do with the medical community being very concerned that what the PM plans for Monday is an experimental approach not being used by any other first world nation. In the battle between health vs economy, economy has won out. Let's see what the cost will be... Time will tell.

I think it's political, the majority of the medical community did not want the Tories in power & would never say a good word about the government.
