Coronavirus

Recommended Posts

Just back from a combined exercise (walked there & back) & shopping trip & was amused to see the polis at the next till blag two bags for life without paying - obviously crime pays.

On my trip through the car repair & building trade shops that were closed during Lockdown1 it's hard to see the transmission rate coming down as quickly this time although hopefully the number of death recorded starts to fall soon - with vaccination arriving at one end and herd immunity at the other maybe we'll be out of the pandemic by Spring 22.

UK now has the highest death rate in the world now.
It’s not just those who die that will be affected by this virus. Those who survive COVID many of them will experience life changing situations. So sad.

We won't be out of it until the mass hysteria and panic dies down.

That will be LONG after deaths and cases have hit single figures.

As we saw in the summer last year.

Ah, the self declared "most intelligent guy" on the forum...:hammer

Is this the mass hysteria you were talking about last October when you were declaring 50 deaths a day acceptable and arguing against tightening restrictions?

Yet another crass and sociopathic comment.

How many people have died prematurely because of BJ pandering to gammonistas like you?

You appear to have taken a wrong turn down Cliche Avenue.

Enjoy your walk.

Alone. 😄

It wasn't self declared, it was me that called him that.  Aye, ah know, sarcasm doesn't come across well in writing. :lol

It doesn't.

Deaths per million have the UK sitting 8th

Nothing to be proud about but still not the worst.

My apologies. I knew I should have checked The Independent “facts” with you first. Sorry. Shameful.

Crass & irrelevant attempt at deflecting your previous sociopathic comments, still at least we should be grateful you haven't resorted to telling lies again.

PS - I'm not afraid to walk alone when I know I'm correct. 😄

Apologies for missing your comment but he's repeated it since (& most likely said it before too) so I feel entitled to use it.

There's nothing funny about this site anymore - @oaksofts already chased one person off the site IOBS and I'm close to following him.

No I didn't and IOBS's resignation post is alive and kicking for those who want the proof. 😃

He fell out with Div over his ban from Pie and Bovril and you know that fine well.

Maybe if you stopped chucking personal insults around and took yourself much less seriously you'd have more fun on here. You can't abuse people and then complain about being chased off the site.

Grow up or grow a pair FFS.

Today, hard to believe, for me anyway, an astounding 1,610 deaths. 

Unbelievable, the deaths have climbed astronomically since Christmas.

Wonder why they have climbed, what could have caused this🙄

 

Still got another week or so of these higher numbers once the new year huggers...........🙄

I think we are seeing the damage caused by families and friends mixing over Christmas.

Not to mention those who rushed onto public transport to beat the travel restrictions.

I wonder how we compare to those European countries who chose to have a strict lockdown policy.

I seen an item of a Scottish guy who admitted him and 10 of his family all caught it over Christmas.

I was discussing the rise in cases with a guy at work and I remembered me, and a few other's saying a key problem would be the fact we are British.

The "we know better attitude" was always going to be a problem, and here we are.

Strange comment coming from you, remember your predictions were we would be nowhere near this level in January 🤔
