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

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

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

Face covering worn indoors 8th August in most indoor public places by the sounds of it, greater police prescence to enforce it, more powers for local authorities to shut donwn non compliant venues.

Whitty says we've reached the limit of opening up - if we want anymore freedoms, another freedom will have to be lost. This will be as good as it gets until Vaccine by the sounds of it.

God knows how long it will take for a vaccine to be available

When it is available, how long will it take to be able to vaccinate 40m+ people 

feels like this is at least 18 months away 

We need a plan B so we have an economy left to go back to

anyway, the memo hasn't been received near the rocket

There is data which shows that the recent protests, raves etc have not contributed to any uptick in infection

One gets worried when people like Andy Burnham and Sir Keir Starmer agree it’s a great decision

Yes that’s why I posted burnhams twitter post last night. 
 

really concerning this and with the sporting pilots now being canned makes me even more concerned.

worrying times. Can’t see us being allowed out the house in winter but for work and only then with the upmost precautions in place

One of the upsides of having  a surge in cases around the world means that the vaccine trials will speed up,  some people think early spring is viable, probably more like summer 2021 for some of the trials I think, with it rolled out to protect against flu season 2021/2022 -  hope I'm wrong.

There will be several vaccines of varying quality, have to hope the ones that finish trial early are effective ones, and that we can get hold if it - US, UK and Switzerland is where most of the big pharama companies are based but it may be the Chinese govmt

The list of the 26 that are in trial are here  https://www.who.int/publications/m/item/draft-landscape-of-covid-19-candidate-vaccines

earliest phase 3 end i can see is the oxford uni one, July next year - Chinese govmt ones may be sooner, but how likley are we to get them and who will want to take it?

Dunno, it’s just his way

Nah. Not angry. Just a wee bit concerned  that the bloke in charge is an absolute fucking halfwit.

Talking to nurse in charge of immunisations in Durham and Teesside last week and she was very confident they would be giving the vaccine in the next 6-9 months, I have no idea where shes got info from but I'd presume shes privy to more then most, I've been clinging on to that the last week or so

think it's too late for that

half the problem is that it's a virus

the other half is that the government have faffed about from the start with unclear messaging and a half arsed attempt at lockdown, which folk were allowed to get bored of relatively quickly, meaning this latest lockdown will not be properly adhered to either, nor will any other plans moving forward won't either

the approach so far means we're going to get more spikes and localised lockdowns moving forward, and they're likely to get worse in the winter - but they won't be 100% adhered to, which means it's not going away till we do get a vaccine

I've been in ma mums all morning, ripping the fireplace out ready to have a new one fitted tomorrow. Should I not have done that but a lad she barely knows can come in and fit the new one tomorrow?? He can hardly work from home on that. 

Genuine question by the way, it fries my brain all this.
