That Mumsnet thread got closed down I see. Nothing like free speech is there? 

And this is nothing like free speech.

I suppose a "covid doesn't exist" thread is not very welcome when directly underneath it they have an ad selling a "travel test bundle" for 159 quid.

they've got to have a new wave to cover up vaccine side effects

They'd better get a wiggle on then, cos the ozzies are full up now.

I can tell you for a fact that "Turning it off and on again" is a bad idea.

Hmm doing it on the fly isn't easy. The raw data looks like this...........

Blunt analysis converts the %ve into 100,000 (test rates)....

Currently running at approx 360 per 100,000

 At the moment using this data set, increased testing doesn't look correlated to increasing numbers of infections. Of couse this doesn't account for geographical variance should "surge" testing be employed.....

Added complication being surge testing - carpet bombing testing in areas where most likely to find cases, rather than randomly across the country where representative low case count would lower the hit rate.

Without that information it really makes interpreting this data nigh impossible until it starts going into extreme / exponential moves.

Which is why I still like the Zoe data, where there is a lot more continuity to that data set, who are being sampled, how frequently they are being sampled and what they are being sampled for.

This is, or was my argument for the BBC, no advertising dicks pushing stuff towards, or away from things they want or do f want discussed.

Will we notice any difference?

We no longer have a health service.

 

Actually, it’s worse than that. We have an institution masquerading as such, but it comes with the inconvenience of requiring us to shut down half our economy at regular intervals to ‘protect’ it, and society has been largely shut down for 15 months.

A classic case of the tail wagging the dog.

It was money well spent building all those Nightingale hospitals to increase capacity. Friends of the governbankment obviously made a lot of money out of it but it's saved us all.

It just needed an excuse. 

Indeed they needed an excuse and whether by intent or accident covid came along to justify NHS panic.

So far the government hasn't really responded to the overwhelming pressure on the NHS as a result of long term decline in capacity - except to lockdown people and close down the economy etc.   Apparently little or nothing has been done to sustainably increase NHS capacity.  

In the absence of an economy the mass money printing response would have been despised as a policy by UK governments not so long ago.  That's not to say it didn't ever happen but never so blatantly, never so hurrahed and on such a massive scale.

 The total number of NHS hospital beds in England, including general and acute, mental illness, learning disability, maternity and day-only beds, has more than halved over the past 30 years, from around 299,000 in 1987/88 to 141,000 in 2018/9, while the number of patients treated has increased significantly.

And they also control your access to medicine.

With the result that we've currently got people reduced to buying horse worming tablets to try to get access to what should be cheap readily available drugs. It's lunacy.

 

No better over here.

Nothing to see here, squawk along.

I'm sure we will have another Vaccine for this in the next few days.

Think we can see why the noise on extending past the 21st.
Based on the current run rates for jabbing, they’d only have 60% of over 15 years double jabbed by the 21st.
