Funny though according  to today's Covid  statistics  ,cases down, people  in hospitals  down ,people  in ICU down!

It's still too early to see the impacts. South Africa is a good place to look right now. Hospitalisations going up for a week or so and now the deaths going up. Roughly 40% increase in deaths over last two days. 

UK won't see the extent for another 2 weeks or so.

Hopefully we'll continue as normal until the winter break, then.

Indeed, and South Africa, where this has been on the go for about 6 weeks are as follows...................

Cases................. 7 day average, a more realistic guide, over 23,000 from just over 500 a month ago.

Deaths............ 7 day average, 29 from 11 a month ago, not even remotely matching the rise in cases. 

So, comparing the rise in cases to the real worry of people dying, is next to nothing. 

If you want a daily comparison, deaths DOWN 34% from yesterday, imagine that. 

In Scotland, probably where we should be more concerned, a month ago cases were averaging just over 2,800 per day.

Today that average is just over 4,400.

As you say, ICU/hospital numbers CONTINUE to drop. 

Deaths, slightly down from a month ago.

From today's cases it looks like the booster jab is working ,out of 4300 cases only 160 are in the over 65s , 90% of whom have had the booster
