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

[quote=rdchawk post_id=920652 time=1624004661 Problem is that a lot of offices don't have windows you can open, where i work you can only open about 4 out of the whole floor so you'll never get good ventilation, which is why i think also a lot of companies are changing to a policy of not going back...

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

To be fair, I could be very wrong, but I’m not aware of a single outdoor event or mass gathering that has fuelled a COVID spike since February 2020. Ventilation is absolutely key. Think about all the protests, all the VE Day celebrations, those front pages of Brits packing to the beaches, everyone ...

Just come through on my Facebook page that there will be a VAT on July 17th from 10am. :up:

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

Not sure if its common knowledge but the 2nd jab can be done at 8 weeks instead of 12, I had mine after 8 at a walk in centre, so if anyone out there has had one and is 8 weeks after it, you can go to a drop in centre and have the 2nd.

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

It's not just hospitalisations and deaths that should determine policy. With more of the virus in circulation, the more chance of further variants. Variants that are more transmissible. Britain produced the Kent one, maybe we'll come up with another. The Delta/Indian variant is 40% more transmissib...

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

But with previous lockdowns there had been evidence that hospitalisations were up and deaths were up, yet on this case is not happening in either case, which is why I think people will ignore any lockdown, having banging on about protecting the NHS, the proof is we are and they are now more busy wit...

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

But those figures show that having at least 1 jab is very helpful. So whip through people having at least 1.

Which is why if they delay the lockdown easing a lot of people will be unhappy and wont abide by the rules.

Wow, that’s a shame, I was hoping to attend that one. (Good for Shuttleworth I suppose).
Might be another Shuttleworth free season for me at this rate…

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

The difference between the 1st outbreak you mention to now is that a vast majority of the population now have had a vaccine that will help and maybe a reason why figures are staying really low. Hence why I said we are hoping for the best, since we really can only hope that this is the case until we...

So we all just stay in our hidey holes for the rest of our lives?? the stats show there is no increase in deaths and hospitalizations (in fact a Dr commented that the hospital he worked at was more busier now with non covid related things), cases yes, but that would always be the case, the Indian va...

If we are 9th aren't their 8 countries worse than us (or 7 if you exclude San Marino)? Countries with populations so low that 2 deaths would put them above our deaths per capita don't really count.

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

I'm sure I read somewhere that if the virus is kept going it adapts. Covid-19 has shown how it produces new variants. What if one of these is resistant to the vaccines? We are literally back to square one. If it's not cases, it's deaths/hospitalisations that's the new measure,then if this happens, ...
