Oh no, are you going to put me back on ignore? How will I cope without your obsession for the 18 hours or so that would last? 🤣🤣🤣

Almost always the first person to complain & moan when I argue with someone else on a thread back & forth… 

Also Faraway 🤣🤣🤣 feels like the outrage at my existence is boiling over.

^^^^^^^^^^ Gagging for attention. :lol:

Anyhow, to summarise, this variant is all but done, all numbers dropping, by the end of Jan or mid February surely restrictions should be all gone, even for the ever cautions Nicky? 

Oh, what happened to the "predicted" upsurge when schools returned?  :lol:

But some have said there is light at the end of tunnel, with Dr Mike Tildesley, member of the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Modelling group (Spi-M), said that he hoped that by the end of the year the nation would have a “flu-type” relationship with COVID-19.

He told BBC Breakfast: “Say we get into a situation where the virus becomes very, very mild and we are living alongside it – we’re not there yet, but hopefully we will be at some point this year – then we do need to talk about not just cases but also hospital admissions and the number of people who are dying with the disease.

Dr Tildesley added that, generally speaking, new variants of viruses tend to be more transmissible but “also generally milder”, adding: “So my hope is that as we get further into this year and, next year, we are dealing with milder versions of COVID and hopefully we have more of a flu-type relationship with COVID where potentially we protect the vulnerable as we get into the colder weather, but we don’t see a return of restrictions.”

THEN you have this........................ makes you wonder if any of these experts know what the fcuk they're talking about, could they be members of the forum? :lol:

However, Dr David Nabarro, a World Health Organisation (WHO) special envoy for COVID-19, warned that "it’s going to be bumpy" before life can resume some semblance of normal. 

 

He told Sky News: “Though it’s possible to start imagining that the end of the pandemic is not far away, just everybody be ready for the possibility that there will be more variations and mutations coming along, or that there will be further challenges, other surges of even Omicron coming.”

Nabarro added children do not get very ill from COVID-19, and “we’re going to have children acting as vectors of the virus for some time to come”.

He said there was a need to still be “respectful of this virus”, adding: “Do what you can to stop transmitting it. Do what you can to protect others from being affected by it. It’s not the common cold.

“I know people would like it to be but it’s a virus that has still some really unpleasant features. Let’s do our best to protect people from it if we possibly can.”

Will be interesting to see how this analysis plays out. One of the key points yet again is the 28 days death toll is too narrow for giving a true reflection of Covid caused deaths over the pandemic. 

Another important caveat is this approach will "likely understate the effect of the pandemic in January and February"

Well done wee Nicky, it seems the "tsunami" has passed us and South Africa were right all along.

I wonder what the media will focus on now, Boris? :lol:

Alternatively perhaps hear nothing more from yourself. Either outcome or both would be fine. They will no doubt find a cure for Covid but the Arbroath disease could prove to be intractable.

What a disaster for public health that would be. Don’t you know? He knows better than the leading scientists and government advisers on how to handle pandemics. 😂

No predictions today? 

Oh, forgot, no bad news, no posts from you, brilliant. :lol:

As I’ve said, it’s great news that this wave is less severe & the vaccines have predictably had a big impact. 
 

But the very modest restrictions have observably put Scotland in a better position.
 

A PM that didn’t take the necessary precautions & introduced restrictions by stealth without enough additional support. This has had a negative impact on the nations overall health. 
 

He is now trying to chase the popular vote to cover the fact he has broke rules he set himself that somehow he also didn’t know what they were. If that doesn’t make sense to you… join the club.

Wrong, as I said weeks ago, following the FACTS from South Africa, another big fat lie from you.

No they haven't.

No it hasn't.

His blatant disregard for the rules should see him, and EVERY other person who was in attendance or organised these events, dismissed from their roles. 

You must be getting edgy, having to go back to work soon where everyone ridicules you. :lol:

Mainly baseless lies again and twisting the facts, what a tragic case you are. :byebye

Only idiots think that Covid is over.

this is a virus that has spread around the world and has myriad opportunities to mutate, change, adapt.

omicron - a “mild”mutation is now dwindling in the well-vaccinated UK.

The whole reason for the scientific community calling variants by Greek names is that - initially- there are a lot of names in that alphabet.

we are far from done.

 

despite the current government pandering to a tiny faction off the headbangers in its mental group of MPs.

dearhs and illnesses could have been mitigated.  There was so much obvious scared politicising and backtracking by  The Buffoon showing himself to be scared of his mental backbenchers.

 

Scotland is no better off than anywhere else in the UK.

viruses don’t give a f**k about derisory politics.

 

COVID WILL be back.

Like the flu it'll probably never be gone but we'll learn to live with it, like the flu. 

 

And that's where the comparisons largely stop over the last two years. Covid is not a mild virus and as such hasn't been treated like milder, less harmful virus... like the flu.

And, although some parts of UK appear to have passed a peak, it seems that politicians and other eedjits do not comprehend that a peak implies a rise to a summit then a similar diminishing on the other side.

 

So there still are a lot of infections, hospitalisations and deaths to come,  (as many as there were before the peak).

Could you clarify? 

Is that the TOTAL number of infections, hospitalisations and deaths?

Agree. Statistics. Politicians appear to have settled on the NHS capacity being the determining factor and are willing to accept further illnesses with the current variant. I am in favour of vaccination but it’s an easy win to point out that the vast majority of current hospitalisations are amongst the unvaccinated. I doubt if that has changed from earlier days

Well, to be more precise the initial version of Covid, you do know there has been another major variant, has been more harmful.

The latest panic over Omicron has shown it's certainly not very harmful and as such, if this is as scary as it gets, there will be no more pointless restrictions, the vaccinations will be enough to keep the majority safe.

From almost day one you have criticised restrictions with caution always coming out as the most sensible approach. Including for Omicron.
 

Milder variant but still not a mild virus.
