An interesting article.  I wonder how applicable it is to the UK where an abundance of over-caution may seem to be used to signal opposition to the tories?

People have become overly entrenched in their views and have split into hand wringing third wave fetishists, free-marketeering libertarians and moon howling anti-vaxxers all shouting at each other.

First dose of Pfizery goodness in my arm, boy that done it saying they're absolutely rattling through them in South lanarkshire hence why they're onto the under 40s already.

I’ll expect my blue envelope shortly then, although I registered as an unpaid carer weeks ago and have heard diddly squat since.

That's weird, I registered as an unpaid carer and got my vaccine a week later in Motherwell

'We think that the level of protection in the population to any variant will be so high that by Christmas, Covid-19 should have just faded away into the background like any other illness in circulation.'

So every single measure introduced since March 2020 should be fucking yeeted into oblivion, never to return again, then. Cheers.

It's the latest part of the ongoing mental disintegration of #FBPE twitter. Anything Johnson does in relaxing restrictions  must be vehemently opposed because Brexit is wrong. I would write it off as internet bubble/echo chamber stuff, but the opinion polls which are seemingly randomly selected seem to bear it out as well, and Conservative voters aren't exactly falling over themselves for relaxations either, even if less opposed to them. 

Don't get me wrong, I've no time for the man, but these cranks would have us locked down forever if they could. The irony that they now want to ban all travel in/out the UK is not lost either.

Seen quite a lot of this online tonight. Hopefully enough of them stand up to make their voices heard so loud they can’t be ignored...

Isn't Wales doing better % wise because they have an older population and therefore rightly got more vaccine earlier?

That much older than Scotland that they have vaxxed 10% more of their adult population? Seems unlikely to me.

That Twitter account also tweets a lot of shite.

BBC figures put Wales at 59.1%, Scotland at 51.9%, England at 51.6% and NI at 49.9%

I think you see and hear that a lot now everywhere. People who dont really think about a viewpoint critically other than how it fits into their "group thinking/anti other group thinking" and anything said that is interpreted as being from an opposing group is shouted down without even the slightest consideration of reason, facts etc

Im of the opinion and its my experience that we usually have far more in common than disagree about once you scratch the surface and have a reasonable discussion. Problem is with some people its difficult to have reasoned debate.

Its possible/probable social media is the main cause of it all now

I'm well aware it's some baiting Tory VL who runs that account, but even the above graphic still shows a 7.2% difference between first doses.

Admitting you're well aware it posts shite but you were ok posting it to support your argument isn't a great look.

This graphic shows the % of the total population vaccinated whereas the previous tweet shows the % of adults.

HTH.

This is a concern.

Presumably vaccinations, hospitalisations, number in ICU in Moray are on a par with the rest of the country. But here we are already getting freaked out at an upturn in infection numbers.

Fast forward a couple of months when infections across Scotland will no doubt be higher than they are at present, presumably the calls for going up the levels (perhaps even for Lockdown #3) will become pretty loud.

It says in this report that many of the cases are asymptomatic so some jobs in Moray will not be allowed to get started again because people are not feeling unwell, hospitals are not overwhelmed and people are not dying. Absolute headcases.

Really wish media outlets would pick one measurement and stick to it as it's starting to become a bit confusing.

Since we aren't yet vaccinating children, we should stick with figures for the adult population.

What funding is going to available going forward for when England has correctly binned the lot and we are still going up and down levels and binning folks livlihoods at the drop of a hat?
