    Covid Injection

    If I recall rightly our debate in regard to The Czech Republic was not about lockdown but the wearing of face masks.

    Covid Injection

    The latest American CDC data on COVID makes interesting reading. Since most of the elderly became fully vaccinated care home deaths are down massively. In Dec 2020, these accounted for 32% of all COVID deaths but by Mar 2021 they were just 4% of the total ( I was shocked to read also that nearly...

    This paper discusses the financial implications surrounding the establishment of the Irish Free State. "As part of the Anglo Irish Treaty of 1921, the I.F.S. had accepted both an undefined share of the UK public debt and the redrawing of the Irish boundary by an independent Boundary...

    You’re welcome to believe who and what you want FS , as are the rest of us. Dr Craig is registered with the GMC but hasn’t had a licence to practice since long before Covid. It’s not clear why this should be the case. The Royal College of Pathologists has come out and distanced itself from her...

    That would be the same pathologist whose views have been disowned by her own college and who has been out of work for a long period of time. I’m guessing she may have been reported to the General Medical Council as she has now deleted all her tweets pumping out disinformation like the one below...

    As a highly qualified epidemiologist whose work is frequently referenced I'd hazard he knows a bit more about the effects of Covid than Toby Young and his fellow grifters over on " Lockdown Sceptics ". Here's a quote from a recent article in our own BMJ "In England we have had to set up new...

    Indeed it is . Gideon M-K ( an epidemiologist in Oz ) gives a good overview of the studies carried out up to this point https://gidmk.medium.com/have-lockdowns-caused-suicides-during-covid-19-dd6b7a741f39

    Coronavirus

    The 2020 mortality stats for the USA have just been released . Overall there was a 16% increase in deaths compared with 2019 . Covid was the 3rd highest cause of death at 345,000 deaths , a pretty shocking number. Interestingly suicides are down 5.6% which is not dissimilar to other studies...

    I think we are having a respectful debate on the timescales for relaxation of restrictions. There is uncertainty and a balance to be taken into account so it’s very much open to debate. The vaccines are brilliantly effective ! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Covid Injection

    I’d echo the words of Prof Whitty “ If you look at the history of this all around the world it’s full of leaders who wished they had acted quicker and then been more careful as they take things off “ . We’ve had one of the worst death rates in the world , disproportionately affecting ethnic...

    13% of Covid ICU patients are aged between 40 and 50 years , many of them with children still at home. We’ve come this far so why not wait the extra few weeks until that age group has been vaccinated too ? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Covid Injection

    We have vaccinated the older population many of whom , as you point out , have either chosen not to be admitted as part of their advanced care plan or are so frail they wouldn’t be candidates for ICU even if they were admitted. The vast majority of under 60s have not been vaccinated and yet this...

    Covid Injection

    My point was that if you relax restrictions whilst our ICUs are still under pressure and before vulnerable populations have been vaccinated you risk further exponential growth , ICUs fill again and the government has no alternative but to introduce a further lockdown. Isn’t that what we are...

    Covid Injection

    I’m not saying that at all. To be in a position to administer effective vaccines at this point in the pandemic has been an incredible achievement by the scientific community and It’s been a privilege to be able to help out as a volunteer vaccinator this past few months. They really are making a...
