  1. The majority of people vaccinated in Scotland currently are under 50. So the good news is every NHS manager, records keeper and the Janny have been done. Only 2% of over 80s in the community vaccinated.
  2. Pitches are now dangerous when a little wet, when a little frosty. Next they should be calling them off in the height of summer when they are brick hard. Era of ultimate pussyness.
  3. Daily review. Overall cases per 100K for 7 days peaked at 301.9 for figures 29th Dec to 4th Jan From 6th to 12th January we are now at 248.1 Todays figure is for 7th Jan to13th Jan is 232.8. Another single Day drop of 6.17% and a drop from the peak of 23.09% If the R is 1.4 then I was the 1st man on the moon. Daily movement for all councils. Just look at all the huge drops. Inverclyde 374.0 to 347.0 Glasgow City 370.7 to 351.1 North Lanarkshire 370.0 to 345.1 Renfrewshire 328.9 to 304.9 East Dunbartonshire 301.9 to 289.0 Dumfries & Galloway 321.1 to 283.5 North Ayrshire 299.1 to 282.0 West Dunbartonshire 271.0 to 267.6 South Lanarkshire 288.6 to 266.7 East Ayrshire 280.3 to 264.7 Dundee City 275.2 to 262.5 Clackmannanshire 248.4 to 246.4 Aberdeen City 251.9 to 245.3 Falkirk 239.3 to 224.4 South Ayrshire 222.9 to 222.0 Perth & Kinross 231.7 to 217.2 East Renfrewshire 212.5 to 205.2 Fife 207.7 to 193.5 Scottish Borders 215.6 to 189.6 Angus 191.9 to 181.6 Highlands 177.7 to 178.9 Aberdeenshire 188.0 to 167.7 City Of Edinburgh 175.5 to 159.3 West Lothian 153.5 to 156.2 Stirling 165.6 to 131.6 Midlothian 127.6 to 115.7 Moray 125.2 to 110.6 East Lothian 103.7 to 99.0 Shetland Islands 87.3 to 82.9 Argyll & Bute 86.2 to 81.5 Western Isles 26.2 to 44.9 Orkney Island 18.0 to 18.0
  4. So as policy are we buy 5 get one free ?
  5. Not about what the Belgian care homes are doing, but if the Vials only officially contain 5 doses and we can safely get 6 does then that is a 20% increase in Pfizer stocks.
  6. Has anyone heard of this publicised in the UK ? Some care homes are using the extra dose contained in every vial of Pfizer vaccine to vaccinate the relatives of residents, according to the head of one home network. Since the vaccine was first rolled out, it has been known that a vial of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, the first to be approved in the EU, contains six and sometimes even seven doses, instead of the five doses intended.
  7. Using a possible seventh “bonus dose” that can be taken from the vials from the Pfizer vaccine is no longer permitted, according to the Agency for Care and Health. Pfizer’s vials contain five doses as standard, but with a special type of syringe, it is possible to get six full doses, and exceptionally even seven. This sixth dose – called a bonus dose – already provided Flanders with more than 5,000 extra vaccinations. That one is still allowed, but the occasional seventh dose can no longer be administered. The decision has nothing to do with the quality of the seventh dose, as the seventh dose is just as effective as the first one, according to the Agency. However, there is no guarantee that these people can also get their second injection, as it is not certain that two extra doses can again be taken from the vial at that point. For the facilities that have already administered several of these seventh doses, the agency is now working on a solution, as providing an extra vial for the second round is not possible.

  8. EU considers Covid-19 vaccination passport to travel Friday, 15 January 2021 Credit: Belga Commission President Ursula von der Leyen is in favour of a vaccination certificate that would be recognised in all Member States of the European Union. “It is absolutely necessary to have a certificate when you are vaccinated,” said Von der Leyen said at a press conference with Portuguese Prime Minister António Costa on Friday. “That is a medical necessity.” Political and legal questions about what rights would possibly be attached to such a vaccine certificate or passport, however, should be discussed during a debate, according to Von der Leyen. Several Member States have already warned that such a passport could become a source of discrimination, as it could allow holders to be able to travel around Europe freely, while others still waiting their turn for vaccination will not have that same right. “It is always important to find a fair balance. For example, you can combine a certificate with a negative coronavirus test for those who have not yet had access to a vaccine,” von der Leyen suggested, calling for agreements at the European level. The proposal was being pushed by Greek prime minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, but several other EU members, including Germany, are wary of the idea. However, Mitsotakis, whose country’s economy heavily relies on travel and tourism, stated that vaccination would not be an explicit condition for travel, but that a guarantee of unhindered travel could motivate people to get vaccinated. On Thursday 21 January, the heads of government will meet over videoconference to discuss the latest developments in the coronavirus crisis and the possibility of such a passport.
  9. Good Afternoon. 10 Days on from my last full review it is worth a complete council update. Overall cases per 100K for 7 days in period from 27th Dec to 2nd January was 279.7 This peaked a few days later at 301.9 for figures 29th Dec to 4th Jan From 6th to 12th January we are now at 248.1 Let us just take a look at the councils and the progress from the figures I had 10 days ago. They are now ranked in worst order but today. I think everyone locked down, all schools shut. You now once again see who are the naughty people as they leap back to the top. It is the same old as back in the Autumn !!! People in our largest city really do need to get a grip. Most of the suprise councils have clearly taken it seriously. Inverclyde 578.4 dropped to 374.0 Down 35.33% Glasgow City 315.6 to 370.7 Up 17.46% North Lanarkshire 402.2 to 370.0 Down 8.01% Renfrewshire 414.9 to 328.9 Down 23.87% Dumfries & Galloway 536.1 to 321.1 Down 40.10% East Dunbartonshire 265.1 to 301.9 Up 13.88% North Ayrshire 321.4 to 299.1 Down 6.94% South Lanarkshire 278.0 to 288.6 Up 3.81% East Ayrshire 366.4 to 280.3 Down 23.50% Dundee City 382.4 to 275.2 Down 28.03% West Dunbartonshire 250.8 to 271.0 Up 8.05% Aberdeen City 277.3 to 251.9 Down 9.16% Clackmannanshire 194.0 to 248.4 Up 28.04% Falkirk 269.7 to 239.3 Down 11.27% Perth & Kinross 219.2 to 231.7 Up 5.70% South Ayrshire 214.0 to 222.9 Up 4.16% Scottish Borders 432.0 to 215.6 Down 50.09% East Renfrewshire 365.3 to 212.5 Down 41.83% Fife 194.6 to 207.7 Up 6.73% Angus 230.6 to 191.9 Down 16.78% Aberdeenshire 259.2 to 188.0 Down 27.47% Highlands 186.2 to 177.7 Down 4.57% City Of Edinburgh 239.1 to 175.5 Down 26.60% Stirling 142.2 to 165.6 Up 16.46% West Lothian 175.3 to 153.5 Down 12.43% Midlothian 204.4 to 127.6 Down 37.57% Moray 123.1 to 125.2 Up 1.71% East Lothian 146.6 to 103.7 Down 29.26% Shetland Islands 240.0 to 87.3 Down 63.63% Argyll & Bute 85.0 to 86.2 Up 1.41% We shall Ignore the Islands for this excercise.
  10. Another day on and Scotgov misleading the public with this R Rate is 1.4 bullshit. The lag on my data is 3 days and I estimate the R rate at around 0.98 I stick to this point that I believe it is currently fear that they are using. Please remember all those commenting that these figures are a 7 day rolling period that are 3 days in arrears. So I am NEVER talking about YESTERDAY as some posters keep referring. There is no LAG in these figures only a fixed 7 day period. Anyway 5th Jan to 11th Jan was 267.4 cases per 100K population with confirmed positive tests. 6th Jan to12th Jan is down to 248.1 a substantial drop of 7.22% !!!. We now have a sustained drop of 17.83% since the peak figures 8 days ago. Another good single day change for many councils as 5th January is dropped and replaced by 12th January. Numerous councils now below 200 cases per 100K which is well under what Glasgow & lanarkshire etc was at in the Autumn. I will probably do a council real performance over these 8 days in due course but the usual 1 day summary for now. Huge drop in cases (Over 10%) Aberdeenshire (Down 16.85%), City of Edinburgh, Dundee City (Down 15.09%), Inverclyde, Midlothian (Down 16.32%), Moray, Western Isles (Only 1 less case), Orkney Isles(Only 1 less case), Renfrewshire (Down 14.01%), Scottish Borders (Down 14.95%), Large drop in cases (Over 5%) Dumfries & Galloway, East Ayrshire, East Lothian, Falkirk, Glasgow City, North Ayrshire, North Lanarkshire, South Ayrshire, South Lanarkshire, Small drop in cases (Under 5%) in Aberdeen, Angus, Argyll & Bute, East Renfrewshire, Fife, Highlands, Perth & Kinross, Shetlands, West Lothian No Change in cases in No Councils Small increase in cases (All under 5%) East Dunbartonshire, Stirling, West Dunbartonshire, Larger Increase in cases (Over 5%) Clackmannanshire, Huge Increase in Cases (Over 10%) No Councils
  11. Not everyones favourite but I do not think £25 comes around often for Cardhu Reserve https://www.amazon.co.uk/Cardhu-Reserve-Single-Scotch-Whisky/dp/B00PA8Y828/ref=sr_1_5?crid=13LDTRORCHRTV&dchild=1&keywords=whisky&qid=1610654832&refinements=p_76%3A419158031%2Cp_36%3A406397031&rnid=355251031&rps=1&s=grocery&sprefix=wh%2Caps%2C182&sr=1-5
  12. Aye its all going well in Ireland. Worst country in Europe currently for infections. Would not bet against them changing vaccine policy anytime.
