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

When they (Government/Scientists) say there's a new variant of Covid, what do they actually mean?

Is it a new SARS?

How and why is it a NEW variant ?

Why is it prevalent in certain countries ?

Where as this new variant come from ?

They actually tell you fuck all, no explanations, no nothing, except there's a new variant, and people on the socials all become the new wave of scientists and viral researchers, doctors and professors of the human body!

Listen to last night's More or Less on radio 4, gives you a breakdown of why its 70% more virulent. Really interesting, but then its been a beacon of truth throughout this whole thing.

Its all out there, from what I can see across various publications and programmes, they just don't go.into detail in the main briefings.

Dunno what you've been watching, but there has been loads of coverage of this, with many epidemiologists giving fairly detailed explanations.

Loads more on the Internet, more nuanced depending upon your level of interest.

Already been plenty of variants, and no doubt more will follow.

Surprising you’ve not been recruited to run it tbf. I’m actually shocked. Would of thought Pfizer et al would be clamoring. 

Thats one not trying to defend the indefensible

They don't have to go in to detail, just a summary of how, why and when. The whole thing is lacking in honesty, I've been saying this for months.

The majority of us have no clue how viruses are formed, how they transmit, variants, mutations, ninja turtles etc, mind you the Government don't seem to have a clue either, the same with our fucking scientists .... clueless 🤷‍♂️

That's how I read it - but Blondie reckons we might be on double time. In which case - game on! Need to reread that email! :)

Double the time for half the wage

What you moaning about now- because we've not immediately stopped Brazilian flights?

Erm, yes

Its either serious or its not

But go on, you were probably odds on to come up with a far fetched justification. :)

Why are there variants, how do they happen, just a simple explanation at these briefings would suffice, people might take more notice and take the whole thing seriously.

Defending what? Think you need to learn to read as well 

I'd suggest you take your own advice 

I didnt say you were, but sure theres time yet

I don't think so personally, read the article and then try and and put that into a briefing where you need to communicate basic facts. 

Itd get convulted very quickly. If you want to know more there is quite a bit of info put out by official sources as well.

We currently have essentially the same restrictions on Brazil (or others) as France for example has on us. Basically tests within 72 hours before travel.

If its felt a travel ban is necessary, no doubt it will be done.

Without checking, have the rest of the world banned flights from Brazil?

Frankly, you're desperate for an angle.

Whitty et al have done on occasions. Wouldn't expect too much at them though, as folk would lose interest.
