Coronavirus (COVID-19)

A vaccine designed to protect against two variants that are pretty much non-existant by now (Wuhan & BA.1).

What is the point?

"Originally those aged 50-65 were not going to be jabbed. However, the immunisation campaign has been expanded because of the fast spread of variants, uncertainty about how the virus will mutate and the expectation that we will be more social this winter than in previous years - giving the virus more chance to spread."

This vaccine will do nothing against any new variant that appears this Winter, which is the only way we will have a winter wave.

Wee Ikea hotdog and some meatballs while chilling on your choice of bed. Could be worse I guess.

Wonder if this will help the next non-Shanicron variant to evolve.

Incredibly, Germany really is going ahead with masking (on public transport anyway) from October - April

😂

Lost all respect for them when England bodied them at the Euros last summer. This after their Russia-Ukraine response basically makes them a fully bona fide banter nation now. I'm sure folk will be relieved about this and not whether or not they'll be able to heat their homes this winter. 🥴

Once PiS are hopefully turfed out in the next elections in Poland, they can become the new powerhouse in central Europe. Absolutely nae c**t gives a shite about covid there.

Tony Blair asking for compulsory masks to be reintroduced on public transport and other indoor public spaces, and all over 18s offered yet another vaccine.

 

 

f**k off. 

Germany are doing an App where it shows your exact vaccination status and anyone who has had the newest vaccine won't have to wear a mask. 

Blair will be pushing for the same thing here soon.

I was in Germany yesterday. This is categorically not true.

These gimps are desperate.

They need a winter where masks are in place and nothing happens to show 'proof' they really do work afterall. Every winter going forward is a perfect opportunity as if there is no new variant then bingo! Look how they worked.

Of course, if they are in place and there is a wave, then just think how much worse it would have been without them!!!!

They've already been shown up (again) when the wave just there (predictably) fucked off on its own - a quiet winter with no restrictions in place and they are finished for good.

They are bringing masks back on public transport from October 1st, though, and their health minister is very keen on a traffic light vaccination status system.

They never got rid of them on transport. They're bringing back the possibility of mandating them in indoors/outdoors again. 

Here's the Health Minister, Jacob Reeß-Mögg.

It's planned for through the winter. 

I think Nippy will keep her heid down this year as Scottish people have clearly demonstrated that there is no possible restriction which will stop them getting Covid.

...ding, ding, ding!

He'll just be ignored again like every other time throughout the pandemic.

Covid is FINISH unless some places like Germany or certain blue states in the US are unfortunate enough to have health ministers or governors who have been indoctrinated by the Cult of Covid. Sooner or later, though, they will be out on their arse and these places will also move on like the rest of the world already has.

It will be hilarious when masks (again) make absolutely no difference to health outcomes this winter in Germany versus here, the Nordics, or elsewhere that won't require them.

In fairness to Devi, her first tweet is before the vaccine roll-out gained major traction. She was still wrong to talk about closing schools IMO but it was a completely different point in the pandemic to what we're seeing now.

On this one very specific incident I'm going to give her a bit of slack.

She should still be out of the job she's in though.

The revolution is back!!!! At least 50 people now at work are not wearing masks.

Some of them have been questioned, why? I don't now!

Long live love @SlipperyP

At lunch we are a Union.

Eta - I started working here in July '20, I've never seen there faces before. It's great!

An MP has pled guilty to breaching Covid rules after travelling by train despite knowing she had the virus.

Margaret Ferrier spoke in parliament while awaiting the results of a Covid test.

She then took the train home to Glasgow after being told she had tested positive.

Ms Ferrier admitted that she had culpably and recklessly exposed the public to the virus ahead of a trial at Glasgow Sheriff Court.

She was elected as an SNP MP but lost the whip and now sits as an independent.

The MP for Rutherglen and Hamilton West took a Covid test on Saturday 26 September because she had a "tickly throat".

I didn't know this was still an active case.
