UK Covid death toll
All good news, thanks for update again Baggy1

The vaccination progress is remarkable. 650k in the last 24 hours is an incredible effort by the NHS. As much as it pains me to say it, and they gave got very little else right, the govt deserve credit taking such a large punt on procurement early doors.

The figures on infections do confuse me when looking at them this week. Over half of boroughs seem to be in the red and increasing even though overall numbers are dropping week on week. As long as these don't feed through to hospitals we do seem on a very positive road at the moment.

I was wondering how the vaccination program was going to progress this month.
I had mine rearranged for last Sunday from this Friday as all April appointments had been cancelled. I ask them if that was down to a shortage, but they weren't willng elaborate.

There’s a real juxtaposition between the countries that are really struggling and those with improved statistics. 

Israel, for example, best country in the world from a vaccine perspective, impressive reduction in R. Compare that to rates in Bahrain (also positive vaccination rates), increasing infections. UK stats are currently pretty good, but it does feel like there is another wave incoming... unless vaccinations really are a panacea. 

I feel like we’re heading for another wave. How that translates to hospital admissions is anyone’s guess.

I think this is the main point now to see how effective the vaccine has been. People will still get infected, but having the hospitals at sustainable levels is key.

Bahrain are nearly 3 months behind Israel and 2 months behind us to be fair. They massively ramped up their vaccine programme at the end of Feb and into March. They were amidst a surge when they ramped it up. Be interesting to see what happens there though.

This is where ‘let’s get back to normal’ leads to and it won’t end well for the country, its people or President....

A danger to everyone

That’s actually where letting it run riot for 12 months and not vaccinating anyone gets you...

That's actually where voting for a far right dickhead with a populist platform gets you...

Correct Malc. “Let’s get back to normal” if we include good vaccination levels and sensible precautions can be effective and doesn’t necessarily lead you to where Brazil is, despite Dekka’s daft over simplification. I don’t think Florida is like Brazil right now for a start.
