There's a place in Scotland, that have produced something like 200 million test kits. A huge proportion of them have never left the warehouse. There's no fuckers wanting them and 200 odd folk are losing their jobs as a result.

I'd be very surprised if they are ever shifted to be honest.

My work is one of the main suppliers of test kits in the UK and I work in credit control involving dozens of these companies. 

We've been warning for about 10 months that the covid bust is going to severely harm many small pharma and medical companies who saw their income instantly explode beyond all comprehension due to the boom of government overspill contracts. They suddenly had a huge surplus of expendable income and piled it into test kits and instruments that at the end of this, will be worth nothing.

Many will have timed their purchases correctly but I fully expect many also stockpiled and will find themselves in trouble.

News emerging that Hancock has ‘misled’ Boris about data over vaccine effectiveness. I mean i dont believe a word about it, both are just incompetent and Hancock is going to made a scape goat (which im not gutted about cos hes a p***k).

Think it was called on this very thread around a year or so ago that because Hancock is such a fucking idiot, he couldn't tell how plainly obvious it was that he was being set up for a fall so that if (when) everything did come out in the wash, it would be he and he alone left to be take the full derry.

That wasn't the point I was making, though.
It was that the very same demographic now wailing about the injustice of not being able to attend their child's egg and spoon race, were previously deriding anyone who suggested easing restrictions should happen as "just wanting a pint," shooting down any questions on the inconsistencies about similar activities that were allowed as being "essential" and thanking our dear leader for keeping us all safe.
Now that it is actually having an impact on them rather than other people, they start shouting about how it's all unfair and they should be allowed because there is a big beer garden in Glasgow.
Absolute hypocrites.
Perhaps if they had been this vocal months ago we'd all be further down the road.
With you now.

And I agree.

I wonder what would happen if all the perfectly healthy, symptom-free people getting tested in Scotland each day suddenly decided to stop getting tested.

But I think you’ll find that we just don’t know and there’s also a risk of variants and ehh, long covid.

I was thinking about this the other day.  Surely if a sufficient number people are doing twice weekly LFT, even if they are asymptomatic, this going to artificially increase the positivity percentage and cases from the PCR tests. 

If their LFT is positive, they then have to have that confirmed by a PCR.  That would mean that the chances of a positive PCR test are far higher and that would push up the positivity rate?  If we're going down this model, then I'd say we end up with a sample bias towards potentially positive people.

Send her a postcard and ask her what she is going to do about it!

Mrs had her first dose of the sweet Pfizer this morning good to see the car park mobbed at 8:30 on a Sunday morning.

My wife got her second AZ vaccine yesterday at 7pm. The vaccination centre was very quiet, she was in and out in about five minutes. The staff said that once they get to 4pm they have more people missing their appointments than attending.

“I’ve been amazed by the response to Independent Sage,” King said. “All 12 members have become media personalities. I hope we get the same level of interest for the climate group.”

 

The bit in red sums those dangers up, they love the attention just like Jase, Devi etc.  Get these irrelvant c***s in the bin where they belong.

I just can't take 'LoNg CoViD' seriously, I'm afraid. warnock.png

Disability/occupational disease for being a wee bit tired ffs. iZT8ghc.png

Quote

The Sunday People highlights a plea by the TUC for the government to help the more than one million victims of Long Covid by recognising it as a disability.

It says the TUC also wants ministers to classify Covid-19 as an occupational disease - entitling workers and their families to claim disability benefit and compensation if they contract the virus while working.
