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

Pfizer vaccine in Geraldton for me today, nice to hear voices of 2 English nurses. 2nd jab in 3 weeks time 👍

What's the vaccination set up like down there?

Plenty getting it, or some hesitancy?

Think most of the genuinely vulnerable are covered, but after that very hit and miss. In spite of Victoria's current problems, Covid isn't a threat and think it's made people complacent.

High vaccine rates are key to opening borders, and the govt have failed a little here. Australia needs a roadmap to opening up. Covid is inevitably coming as even vaccinated people can transmit so best to get everyone done. There is talk of a trial allowing vaccinated people a far easier return to Australia than the current 14 days hard hotel quarantine. They probably need to incentivise vaccine participation.

Over 6000 new infections yesterday up by 50% week on week. Only way we go ahead on 21st is if hospital admissions do not follow. Saw some stats today that current position is under every scenario that was modelled so there is some hope

We are testing the arse out of it

I heard on the news that the biggest area of growth is secondary school kids 

So fucking what

My lads school had more positive cases in one week (3 weeks ago) than the whole of 2020.

Interestingly, my antibody results came back yesterday and I still have covid antibodies in my system nearly 8 months on. Plus I am double jabbed.

Id hazard a guess there were more tests in that week than the whole of 2020

Otherwise sensible people are losing the plot

Like i suggested the other day, its all folk are talking about, letting the bumbling bent wankers carry on with their lies and deceit

Every day is a day to hide bad news

I'm struggling to see the internal issue of rising infection rates - I get it from a letting people go abroad point of view, particulary to countries where they aren't on it regards vaccinations

and I don't mind if they stop folk coming here from countries struggling with it

but if we are all getting vacced up, and there's no increase in hospital admissions or deaths, then we're on top of it, and we can continue to make progress

personally, I'm not arserd if they do extend a couple of weeks from June 21st, as I can quite happily do what I want right now - but I get that if it gets  moved again, folk are going to start getting restless and that leads to folk itching for a protest and tear up and all that, which doesn't help

I'll be arsed if I can't go to the footy in August

so right now, what good reason is there for not lifting restrictions on June 21st? 

what are the genuine negative impacts of folk catching it and not needing hospitalistion or dying? i.e. unvacced young uns?  as long as the vast majority get their jabs on time, I don't see the issue

Another twist in that the Pfizer jab isn't as effective on the Indian strain as the Astra Zenica..

 

However despite rising cases hospital numbers in Bolton seem to be dropping.. 44 reported today.

I can’t pretend to know anything about injections. Could the antibodies you have be to do with the injections?

Absolutely. 

That's also a key reason for vaccination- they give a longer lasting antibody response.

Apparently the vaccines don't give you exactly the same antibodies as actual Covid. That's what it said on the leaflet anyway.

Our resident immuno expert has deserted the ship for now, he'd know for sure, but the vaccines, iirc, mimic the virus so that the immune system recognises  the molecular structure on the relevant part of the virus. I would assume this is slightly different from using a deactivated virus.

Whatever the case you've got anti things.

Naturally formed antibodies are stronger, and more adaptable.  

But they can't just give everyone a live version so...vaccines a close second

Diane Abbott clearly working for the BBC;

In the UK, more than 40 million people (51.6% of adults) have now had their first dose of a vaccine, according to the latest figures. Some 27 million people have had their second dose, equivalent to 76.2% of adults.

Zero deaths again today.

We need to stop giving Covid so much attention in the uk now.

We need a football tournament to distract us or summert

One death isn't it?

Either way, it doesn't look like the NHS is being overwhelmed, so fingers crossed for us "unlocking" in a couple of weeks.

Aye, hopefully. The media should be focusing on this positive aspect, illustrating the absolute benefit of the vaccine and getting more and more to have it.

Radio 4 had a piece earlier with some young uns on, and although it certainly wasn't representative and probably represented a small minority, some of the ignorant shits deserved a visit to Rudy's volcano.
