No they didn't.

The PEAK in infections/cases was 18th December.

The deaths are still rising, 3 weeks AFTER this date.

PS It should be noted the numbers, averaging just over 150, are still very low in a country with a low rate of vaccination. 

Missed this, as I can usually ignore your shit  - but you've just demonstrated thickness. Again.

 

My post specifically noted that the peak was rising OVER A WEEK past  the infections peak.  THAT was the sole point that I was making.

"In South Africa the peak in Omicron deaths followed on, over a week past the peak for infections"

I made no suggestions that it could not or would not continue rising.  You simply reiterated and confirmed my point...  after saying, "no they didn't"  Sigh.  :rolleyes:

 

 

 I cannot cater for your splendid stupidity and depths of daftness as well as communicate with normal Buddies.

Nice try, but, as usual, you keep digging.

Over "3 weeks" would have been more accurate, and truthful. 

I do love your assumption you are a better "buddy" than any person who disagrees with you.

Pompous and deluded.

Apart from it being 'Buddie', which I couldn't easily ascribe to the likes of you...

...I simply pointed out that YOUR weak attempt to disagree with me only served to confirm that I was correct and you were wrong.

 

YOU are the one who disagreed.  You screwed up, simpleton.

 

This latest post of yours is 1984 doublethink - claiming the opposite of the truth should be believed!

How can you possibly expect anyBuddie could fall for such Trumpian bullshit and lying?

 

You're a joke!   :lol:

“Don;t”   :lol:

You twat!  You cannot blame predictive text for that ineptitude.

 

I shall run along: you’ve amused me minimally and mildly.  

Glad that you recalled that I’m good at running as you were scared to race me.

Back on ignore you go...

Unless you type yet another crass ineptitude!  :lol:

Meanwhile in Scotland cases continue to decrease, a fairly steady decline now.

Hospitalisations slowing down, ICU still showing no increase over the last 30 days.

Tragically deaths rising, although still low numbers.

Unsurprisingly since the changes in foreign travel, bookings have increased, just the tonic for people after the last 20 odd months. :thumbs2

The government inflating the figures..........................why would they do that I wonder?

The UK Health Security Agency is facing a fresh “dodgy data” row after being warned by the statistics regulator over a controversial claim about the spread of omicron.

In a letter to the UKHSA, the Office for Statistics Regulation warned that Sajid Javid’s claim that there were 200,000 omicron infections a day by mid-December “caused confusion” after officials failed to justify the figure for a further three days.

The warning raises further concerns about UKHSA’s handling of Covid figures after Dame Jenny Harries, the body’s chief executive, was accused of disseminating “dodgy data” that inflated the potential risk of the omicron variant.

“There is a danger of public confidence in Covid-19 data being put at risk. They also should not just push worst-case scenarios to increase the impact of what they are saying.”

Free LFT to be abandoned soon, which will be the end of the current panic over the flu.

No more scaremongering with the case numbers. 

Great news, back to life, back to reality. 

Case numbers down again today

Surely the current restrictions in Scotland will be eased soon?

In another extraordinary finding that raised questions about Nicola Sturgeon’s restrictions, the study said that only one in 100 Scots who catch Covid require hospital care following the UK’s vaccination programme and the spread of omicron.

It found that the proportion of people who needed hospital care after getting the virus dropped from 12 per cent in January 2021 to one per cent in December.

When age was taken into account, the report said people were 12.5 times more likely to be admitted to hospital with Covid if they are unvaccinated than if they had received a booster or third vaccine dose.

Again, this could be construed as proof of the success if both vaccines and restrictions.  I hear scientists and doctors warn that the older population is comparatively untouched in Scotland by Omicron, but that is liable to change over this month.

That's not up to date. It's already in care homes and in my mothers nearly everyone of the residents  have tested positive. All are just showing signs of cold or minor flu ,none are bad enough to warrant going to hospital  and fingers crossed visiting  be be allowed by the end of this coming week.

The boosters work

The numbers in England, with less restrictions, are slightly better than Scotland? (See highlighted section below)

AGAIN, I agree a key difference to the previous outbreaks are the vaccines/boosters, hence this variant, also much less damaging, can't be compared to the Delta situation. 

Why has the older population been untouched?

If you mean less of the older population have been hospitalised etc then I would suggest that's down to them being vaccinated.boosted to a man/woman? 

This was similar to many areas of England, where no similar measures on social distancing, licensed premises and large events including football matches were introduced.

The UK Government’s Covid dashboard on Friday showed that Scotland (2,079) had a higher case rate per 100,000 people over the previous week than England (1,787).

So far.

There are a lot of areas in England, particularly in the north, which are currently mirroring the huge percentage weekly increases in Covid cases per head that Scotland was experiencing a couple of weeks ago.

:lol:

Aye, but even IF Englands numbers rise it's not proportional to the difference in Scotland with considerably different restrictions. 

The good news, UK wide, is this, as predicted, is nothing as serious as the previous variant, and, combined with vaccinations/booster, we can all get back to living a normal life, which is what most of us want.

At the moment it isn't, but England's case rate has shown a slow but steady increase and continues to do so.

Sadly, as predicted the data on hospitalisations and deaths is now looking ever increasingly grim across the UK. Seems certain, we are far past the point where anymore restrictions would have a meaningful impact on the increasing number of people who's health has been impacted and the increasing, avoidable death toll. The UK wave of infections seems to have peaked but daily Covid cases are still very high. As said, lots of cases for a milder version (version not infection, Covid IS NOT a mild virus) is STILL going to result in a number of deaths and serious health repercussions. 

Of course, as has been hammered home recently, the 28 day death stats are only telling part of a poorer picture but with a close to doubling since Christmas and us yet to see the impacts of how prevalent the virus has been in the last few weeks, it's going to get worse before it gets better. Blood once again on the hands of the UK government for slow/ lack of actions. Seems to me like their decisions have been the worst of both worlds. Keep places open but try and encourage people not to attend. Restrictions by stealth to limit the financial support they want to give (that was some fight to get them to agree to ANY more support wasn't it?)

A positive in all of this is it would seem restrictions up here have limited impacts a wee bit more than across the UK. Of course the Scottish government have said they are limited in what they can do and at what speed due to the UK funding nature of governance. Looking at last weeks deaths as a measure (and again, weekly deaths are pretty much certain to rise in the near future) 0.0019% deaths of the UK population versus Scotland's share of 0.0014% for me shows a sign, restrictions have potentially saved lives up here.
