Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Recommended Posts

25k yesterday is verging towards reasonable status (for now). It should get the over 80’s, care homes and NHS staff done without much fuss by Feb 1st.*

What it still doesn’t really do is make much inroads into the mid-Feb target of over 70s. Still very much in line with the published government targets though - no more, no less.

*as a caveat to that, there will - obviously - be some individuals who couldn’t make their appointment or were ill or their GP fucked up or they aren’t registered anywhere or they just moved etc etc. I can already see the tabloid headlines as governments (Scotland and UK) declare the target met but Mrs Smith in Lochmaben hasn’t had hers yet.

On the talk of vaccine passports etc. It’s unfortunate that we do not have the technology in place so that when you get your vaccine, they can’t send you a Qr code or something to your phone. The majority of us have our phones on us at all times. A simple tap of your code on a wee machine and you are good to go.
I realise this may be a nightmare logistically and that you could potentially alienate the older folk.

Todays summary

Ms Sturgeon points out that, as a result of the lockdown restrictions, case numbers appear to have stabilised and MAY even be declining.   Well whoopee fuckking do Nicola.    MAY be declining !!!

The UK stands at 487.1 cases per 100K Infections for the latest reported 7 day figure. and has not yet updated.

Scotland peaked at 301.9 for figures 29th Dec to 4th Jan

From 10th to 16th January we were down to  210.5

Todays figure for 11th Jan to 17th Jan is 207.3   Another small single Day drop of 1.52% but a drop regardless. Infections have dropped EVERY day  (Is that clear enough Nicola ?) since the  aforementioned peak.  Total drop is now 31.33%   For me the poorly performing South & West of the country are clearly dragging everyone down now.  Back when Tier 4 was first threatened it was Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Ayrshire & Renfrewshire.  

Click cases by neighbourhood to see the spread on the geographical map

How many times does Davidson need to have the vaccination plan explained to her ?
 

Such a shame Ruth Davidson doesn't wear glasses then her ears would serve a purpose.

I was messaged one of those links that suggests when I will get my jab. I know they are a near enough wild guess but based on nothing but me being in my mid (to late) 30s it suggesting I could get jabbed in the first 3 weeks in April.

That can't be right can it? I thought I'd be about September or something.

Mine is saying the same thing (Omni Calculator)

ETA - Last time I'd checked I was September/October

If you are in Scotland you will not be jabbed but you will be jagged (incidentally for Super Bi Girl it's Levels and not Tiers in Scotland - BBC Scotland do this too )

These online calculators are rubbish and many are based on current rate of vaccination when we all know rates will ramp up once all the centres receive the Vauxhall Astra vaccine.

Suspect April to be a bit early but would think your age group might be May / June

Just had a look at mine - note they use vaccination rate of 400,000 but still refer to the Scottish Gov plan so not sure how accurate their calculator might be.  I am 56.  I do not expect to be rolling my sleeve up between the 17th and 23rd March.

Based on your profile, there are between 1,930,462 and 2,168,106 people in front of you in the queue for a COVID vaccine across Scotland.

📅 Given a vaccination rate of 400,000 a week and an uptake of 74%, you should expect to receive your first dose of vaccine between 17/03/2021 and 23/03/2021.

You should then get your second dose by between 09/06/2021 and 15/06/2021.

I changed it to "last 7 days" rather than scottish government plan and got this


 

Based on your profile, there are between 2,401,655 and 3,099,359 people in front of you in the queue for a COVID vaccine across Scotland.
📅 Given a vaccination rate of 102,554 a week and an uptake of 74%, you should expect to receive your first dose of vaccine between 16/10/2021 and 02/01/2022.

You should then get your second dose by between 08/01/2022 and 27/03/2022.

Anyone know of there's any plans to roll out further vaccines to people that have already had one - what I mean is, (not sure if this is still the case) but are the initial vaccines not meant to make sure the disease is not so severe, with vaccines due to come on at a later date that they know will completely stop transmission? So if you get the first type, is there any plans to give the second in the future or do you just go with what you got? I understand the thought is that we'll need boosters after a certain time period, like the flu jag.

I suppose I just kind of answered my own question.

They're working on one now that they hope will protect you against all coronaviruses, and it doesn't even need a needle, just a tiny high pressure jet.

The population of Barra is 1078 people (give or take a few), so an infection rate of 'over 1000 per 100,000' people means, err,  eleven or twelve people got the infection in the past week. A handful of families could account for it.

This underlines the idiocy of those making sweeping judgments about populations 'behaving' or not when the infection rates in question are actually tiny.

Except the Area covered has 38 cases out of 3085 population and is rising.  Yes the numbers are low but not as low as you imply.  

This explains the idiocy of certain posts

Is anyone who has been vaccinated even being given acknowledgment of having been dosed never mind a record of the product used ? I thought the UKGs were firmly against vaccination passports for now.

Mother in law just returned from getting her jag at the GP.  Included with her leaflet was the Astra Zeneca information sheet so presumably that's what she got.

38 per 3085 people is the same rate of community transmission as the eleven/twelve people on Barra itself who tested positive. Which leaves 1066 others who have got f**k all to do with it, other being the target of your horseshit, braying denunciations.

You can see exactly why governments opted for the 'per 100k' metric, as they knew fine well it would hit the sweet spot for 'they're not followin Thu Rools!1!!!' idiocy.

Invergordon is full of utter roasters and unemployment.  Was there a few weeks ago and half the folk in the shops weren't wearing masks.  A lassie serving didn't have one on either.  There's parties getting broken up most nights too.  They're going to spoil a potential return to Tier 1 for the rest of the Highlands.
