Where is this Christian world, what have they done? How bad are their death rates?

Those countries that consider themselves Christian, mostly the Western countries I would suggest. While you, I and others probably don't bother too much there's more than a few do.

If you were to consider Europe as a collection of Christian countries they're doing a wee bit better than they were. Not so long ago Europe accounted for half the daily global deaths, now its around a third.

Well I shall get down on my knees and try not to confuse mysticism with science.

Just watching the compulsory, in some countries, tracking devices being shown on the telly. What's the betting that fear of infection makes them permanent?

Yes, but don’t you understand? Nothing else matters now except Covid. Only Covid. There are no other dangers now, no other priorities, no other ways to die or be immiserated, and all civil liberties are disposable in service of its R number.

After 10 months in hiding from an invisible part of nature itself, there is also no level of simple loneliness, depression and isolation that could justify a family member having you round to their own house for one day. If they do, then that makes both of you weak, entitled, overindulged crybabies, wholly lacking in backbone and moral fibre.

Risk is no longer yours to assess, by the way, either; neither is ethics, nor proportionality, nor priorities (nor indeed which scientists you think may or may not be right). Even now, nearly a year on, all of that must and will continue to be administered on your behalf by the state, in perpetuity if necessary (and it will be), because every and any Covid death could theoretically be traced back to you at some point in the chain. This fact will be tacitly enforced by the more virtuous among us shaming and condemning those bastard families who would decide for themselves that they now wish to spend a day together, irrespective of the presence in the world of a coronavirus.

And PS: your children, no matter how young, must be made to understand that they all now unwittingly carry the deadly weapon of invisible natural phenomena, so that if granny dies of Covid, no matter if she caught it in Sainsbury’s, on the bus, or in the Post Office, the kids will still know that it was probably their fault. It’s the ethical thing to do.

Ok the vaccine.Apparently the pfizer one ready to roll on the 8th. I'm assuming because Ldrp hibby is a midwife she will be pretty well far forward in the queue.Lucky wee sister. My mum turning 90 on the 7th will be pretty near the front of the queue. Me being 58 will be slightly less near the front. The thing is by the time it gets to my turn I'm presuming more than one is going to be on offer? Will we get a choice do you think or do you think it'll be 'take it or leave it'. Also there's the question of what's in it for the companies?I'd imagine Pfizer with their mafioso type leanings are in it to make big bucks out of it,and it will be' we the tax payer 'who are hit hardest, whilst Sunak and his chums in the city are rubbing their hands in glee.Anyway can't say I'm not glad the vaccine is finally upon us.

Looks like you'll be in the 6th group. Maybe enough time to see if any body parts fall off a week or 2 after getting jabbed.

I'm fairly sure the Pfizer vaccine from next week will be given to the most vulnerable, the very old, and front line Health Care workers in hospitals and people in Care Homes. The Oxford vaccine (which will be approved shortly IMO) will be given out to everyone else later on as it is cheaper and easier to store and distribute. People like myself in my mid-fifties will be offered it probably around April/May assuming all goes to plan.

Utterly astonishing how these vaccines have been produced, developed and approved within a 10 month period. We owe an awful lot to the people who have developed these vaccines.

By next summer (and possibly before then) all going well we should be back to as near normality as you can get. Covid-19 will never go away completely, no virus does. However the majority of the population should have enough immunity by the middle of next year to prevent the scale of new infections and hospitalisations we have seen this year.

Fantastic work from these gadgies who have come up with a vaccine. Absolutely brilliant work.
It will be great to be able to meet up with family and friends and not have to stay well away.
Those Bouncers who know me will testify that I’m not exactly a huggable guy (huggies is more my bag) but it will be nice to be able to give a (manly) hug to my lads. ( And of course their wives)

The blame game is pointless. Facts and statistics can be manipulated to suit any point of view.

9 months ago the elderly people whose home is my workplace began to be hit by Covid which was brought into their home by either a worker or a visitor. Many of my colleagues also got sick - some seriously but none of my colleagues died. Unfortunately for the elderly folk the story was very different and although many of them were strong enough to beat the virus about a dozen of them withered and died in front of my eyes.

We went on full lockdown and the virus either had worked it’s way through or we just got good at keeping it out. The survivors got depressed with the lockdown situation and its had a terrible effect on them. Gradually we began opening up again - visitors allowed to come to meet outside with their loved ones. It helped but they are still depressed. New people began to move in and we tested them, quarantined them, and kept wearing out masks and minimized the risks within the community.

Outside the community has been a different story. Workers and their friends have to some extent stayed safer but some have not. They go to bars, restaurants, hang out with friends etc. I get it that it sucks to basically only go to work and then go home and hang out with your immediate family/flatmates. It makes us all depressed.

Last Wednesday a lovely but frail old lady moved in. She was tested negative. On arrival a lovely co-worker, wearing PPE, gave her a shower, got her settled into her quarantine room, and left for the night. That worker had earlier that day had her weekly Covid Test. You can guess what the result was and you can guess what the result of the test the lovely old lady’s test 4 days later was. My co-worker is home feeling pretty shitty, no taste, runny nose etc but prior experience tells me she will be fine. The old lady is coughing, not eating, and saying she feels like she’s dying. My experience says she probably is. Now a large section of my co-workers are reluctant to go in and assist the old lady. I empathize with their fears especially the ones I know have spent the last 9 months only coming to and from work and not hanging around with Noel Gallagher says ‘it’s all an attempt to control us’.

As I say statistics and facts about isolation and depression can back up any point of view. I’m also not gonna pin the blame on any one person or action. However, seeing just how easily this old lady caught the virus, and worrying that despite her quarantine there’s a high chance that in the days ahead the virus will be shown to have already jumped to many of the 70 other old folk who live here and that maybe half of them will die a horrible death in the next 2 or 3 weeks makes me mad when someone, who is extremely unlikely to die from Covid, complains that they’ve been asked to eat their lunch at a separate table from a co-worker.

Listening and watching the news from around the world there was a stark reminder this is far from over and many countries are struggling so badly.

There was one clip that struck me and how lucky we are to have the NHS in the UK. One well spoken women, I'll not say which country because that doesn't really matter, was being interviewed while in a line waiting to get into a hospital.

"It [the virus] is running out of control, not even the rich can be guaranteed a bed in hospital or a ventilator if they need one."

All going ahead from tomorrow. Criteria as follows. Looks like i'm in first wave

Staff need to be particularly aware of a handful of things which may prevent or postpone a vaccination before they book:

  • You cannot receive the vaccine within seven days of the Flu jab.
  • You cannot take the vaccine if you are pregnant
  • You should not get the vaccine if you are planning to become pregnant within three months of first dose
  • You cannot get vaccine if you might be pregnant
  • You should seek advice if you have a history of Anaphylaxis prior to booking
  • Please ensure you fall under the definition of frontline staff

There was some talk in the media over the wee-end that Edinburgh might be going down to Tier 2 after this week. However I don't think Sturgeon mentioned it at all today. It was more how the rest of the Central belt was going to be going to Tier 3.

People that want to take a vaccine for a virus like this are insane.

Vaccines take years to produce...not months.
Who knows the side effects in a couple of years.
.

Bill Gates(Satan himself)even says it alters your genes.

People should really do some researching before diving in.
There's many virologists and people that are experts in this field who are completely opposed to it! Many many videos around about it.

If your older or in very poor health...ok.

Fact is that 99% of people that have died are either over 80,have type 2 diabetes or are mordibly obese.
Average mortality age is 82.

But hey ho the sheep will follow the MSM.

Its Abit larger scale than that Rocky.

Check out ID2020.

It's Bill Gates latest company.

Might even open your mind to the plan at hand.
