Only another 20k cases and 500 plus folk dead but Open the boozers alround eh 🙄

Think the idea would be the get these 10m doses out first, they are due in a matter of days / weeks though, surely great news 

With the vulnerable about to get a vaccine you can make a decent case for easing restrictions this side of Xmas in line with tier 2 or 3, with further loosening in the new  year when the rest of the vulnerable get sorted

My uncle lost his battle to this in Royal Bolton this morning, so he will be one of today’s numbers.  last rites over the phone held by a nurse with no family there. made an exception yester

That was one of the loveliest things to ever happen. Stood in my garden sobbing like a baby! Proud to work for the NHS 👏👏👏👏❤️

I’ve sat with my mum who is slipping away, literally breathing her last today. She idolises the Queen, and whilst she didn’t in all likelihood hear that, I know she would have loved every single

Cases down again

I actually don't care too much about cases

Testing is a lot more widespread than first time round

Even deaths, tragic as it is for those directly affected, 1000 folk die every day

It may as well be covid as pneumonia or flu, which may well be the killer anyway

Relevant figures are deaths and hospitalizations

Imo

Prefer less people getting it, which leads to fewer people getting hospitalised and then fewer people dying. 

At least if numbers are going down at one end, the other will reduce eventually, but you're right, it's all just random numbers in reality. The government will spin it whichever way suits them best. 

Think it's 4 wards full atm at Bolton, that's a lot more than seasonal flu and pneumonia

Random numbers?

I think not.

Countries that have performed the best, with fewer cases and deaths have done so for a variety of reasons that have given their positive results. Far from random.

Cases are what drive decisions around the world. When cases go up, they are followed by hospitalisation then followed by deaths. When cases start to drop, the reverse happens. We’ve had this for 10 months now and still people don’t understand.

Meanwhile in South Australia, they’ve had 36 cases. Time for a ‘circuit breaker’ lockdown.

Amazing. Chalk and cheese in approach.

They've changed all the parameters that drive the data since this stared, it's now deaths within 28 days of a positive test. 

They don't retest people in Hopsital, 

They ignore the numbers if they don't suit and use the ones that do. 

Zero faith in the government in all this.

So basically the more exposed you are to different viruses, the stronger your immune system and the more able you are to fight it off.. 

Sounds like it. If you are a nurse for example coming into contact with lots of ill people I bet your immune system gets lots of practice 😄

I just thought it was useful that we might be getting to a place where we can begin to quantify the section of the population who might not be as at threat from the diseae.

Start at the source

Kill the spread as early as possible

Do what you can to quell cases and you will quell hospilsations and deaths

No point in waiting for the latter two to rise before asking "what do we do to stop this?"

Stable doors and horses bolting springs to mind

1 case if person is 90 is likely an issue

100 cases aged 20, likely isnt

Youve got to dig deeper than cases

Hospitalisation figures as a percentage of cases wil surely be lower this time round as we are now catching more of the young asymptomatics

News from across the pond, pfizer will be asking the FDA for emergency clearance at the end of this week,  they are hoping at being able to use the vaccine in the 2nd or 3rd week in December, but that is still dependent on the FDA.

i know somebody who thinks they are likely working boxing day giving out vax

Sure but it’s all about controlling the spread. 100 20 year olds could soon become 1,000 etc.
