That'll my electricity bill doubling again and the WiFi up to about 500 gig a day for their Xboxes
If you look at Sky news, it says the same vaccine shows 90% protection.Oxford University vaccine trial shows 70% protection from Covid....excellent news.
Apparently both are correct,
70% one dose, 90% if a half dose followed by a full dose.
Crystal clear.I read that it was 62% with two full doses and 90% if a half dose followed by a full dose. I don't think there are enough cases in the sample to be confident in those numbers though so they can only quote the overall number of 70% as it stands. Even 70% should be enough to get to herd immunity levels of protection and I believe they've been manufacturing the Oxford vaccine since around July in anticipation of approval being received so hopefully the rollout of that one can start pretty quickly. It's much cheaper than the Pfizer / Moderna ones too and the UK has 100 million doses ordered (enough for 50 million people) plus it doesn't need stored at -70 degrees like the other ones do. I could see us ending up rolling out the Pfizer one to highest risk groups with the Oxford one going to everyone else.
I think yesterday’s announcement is taking the wrong approach but the governments were better trying to set some ground rules rather than a blanket ban because we all know every *&*^ was going to ignore the advice. I can guarantee Hogmanay will be a disaster Covid wise because folk cannie celebrate new year without getting pissed. The infection rate will be through the roof by spring, vaccine or not.18,500 new cases of Covid19 in the past 24 hours and 696 deaths. I wonder if there is an increase in new cases and deaths following the Christmas Covid restriction break, Johnson, Sturgeon, Foster and Drakeford will publically say that they got it wrong or more likely, say we gave you the chance and you the people have fucked it up.
Well I hope they enjoy themselves it may be their last festive season.
If you look around the 'Christian' world rules are being relaxed in all that I've seen.
I don't necessarily agree with it but my Christmas was planned with the current rules still being in place and won't change unless I get out at sometime for a wee drink although I can't see that happening.
Schools and universities are the elephant in the room. These kids super spreaders. Not their fault in the main but they are.
Exactly what I was meaning but you put it better than meAgree about the Christmas break being lunacy with the easing somewhat of restrictions. However Christmas is a non-event for me unfortunately and has been for several years. But people MUST have their fun world wide pandemic or not. The attitude of some would be - Bl**dy SNP Govt. won't even let us have Xmas! The crux of the matter is some folk refuse to take any responsibility for themselves or others. They have grown up from childhood getting everything they want. They must have Christmas, they must have their drinks in the pubs, they must self indulge. Well I hope they enjoy themselves it may be their last festive season.
