Re: Proud to be British?

I am Proud - not of being British but proud of my late frather who supported Britain during the last war with his commitment and service in the FAA and RAF he was even decorated for bravery pulling a burning gunner out of a Lancaster.

Re: RIAT 2021 Participation and Discussion Thread

I wonder if it will still be a Face Covering wearing requirment and proof of having the jab as ther shows requirment - kind of think it is all they could do really as it would be impossible to keep 250.000 people apart at Fairford. Scarry but also interesting times as None of us have seen anything l...

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

It Certainky wont hurt and Potentially does some good - no on ecan argue with that. I'd agree with that. Having been deficient in Vit D and experienced some of the symptoms I know it's not something I want to be deficient in again. I take D3 supplements. Is it a Covid barrier? I doubt it but, when ...

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

I’m sure there’s a good explanation for this, but after nearly one year of this virus circulating in the UK, currently around 60’000 people being tested positive each day with apparently 1 in 50 at present with the disease and 1 in 30 in London, herd immunity is not and never was a possibility.

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

The figure being given for the new variant is that it's 70% more transmissable. I'm not quite sure what this means; is it: That the droplets are lighter and therefore travel further? That it's become more aerosol based and is therefore more airborne? That it's developed to live longer on surfaces, ...

Quite how anyone can watch that and believe that Johnson should not resign is beyond me.

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

The Office for National Statistics runs a survey using home testing kits which are issued weekly to a significant number of households that have signed up for it. The results are then analyzed and modelled to allow a national estimate to be developed. https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommu...

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

The dataset you are (incorrectly) challenging or using to highlight your hypothesis is a stat on the number of tests undertaken not the number of people tested. Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand the implication on how those two figures are going to differ. The 80,000 figure is simple to...

https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/details/testing

Interesting that it states (I quote)
This is a count of test results and may include multiple tests for an individual person.

Does that mean the results could be higher if they are counting more than one result from each person tested?

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

Does anyone know why there were 80,000 cases reported on the 29th Dec?

Its in the same category as Boris stating that Brexit would be a sucsess for the country.
