We are the grandchildren of apes, not angels
After all of his crowing last week rather surprised* that, in the interest of balance, our resident West Devon CPHQ representative hasn't seen fit to post this?
Number of new UK COVID cases rises for second day in a row - as 85 more deaths recorded (msn.com)
*Or perhaps not - his fawning loyalty to the party line knows no bounds.
(And, before he digs in, I'm NOT taking a "delight" in the rise in numbers. Merely a concern that the mid-summer complacency - for the second year running - could still end in a second, panic-led "winter of Covid discontent"....and no football yet again. :cry:)
Remember how "Eat Out to Help (the virus) Out" in 2020 went wonderfully well, didn't it?

See Ministers are being accused of bringing in Vaccine Passports by "Stealth" after putting on vaccine information for travelling internationally and domestically plus getting into various venues on the NHS app (Not the Covid one)

It's been on the app for ages, so it's nothing new.

Interesting stat via the Spectator, hospitalisations as a ratio of cases now below 2% compared with around 10% in mid February.
These vaccines are really rather good. 👍

Would that not be largely attributable to the significant number of asymptomatic carriers who are now getting tested as a result of being pinged [when previously they may have had no reason to do so]?!

Interesting that India has now been put back on the Amber list, Considering only a month or two ago they were having 300k infections per day, 1000's of deaths and a healthcare system that was collapsing and was the original source of the Delta Variant.
