  • Re: Coronavirus... thoughts ..

    Has anyone seen any comparison per thousand of their relative populations of N. Ireland and the Rep of Ireland as regards infections / hospitalisations / recoveries and /or deaths ?

      Iím still in shock after learning about the young kid ( aged 13 ) in America who was happily messing with his school mates one moment and died of Covid just 10 days ( TEN) later !! They didnít mention any underlying health issues as they normally do ..

        I was out to the bank this morning (Canada) and couldn't believe there were two people ahead of me with no masks and there is a sign at the door saying to wear them while inside.

        Imagine the people who do have to wear one all day while some can't bother to put one on for inside a bank for all of ten minutes. Two young men being selfish thinking they are immune I guess. Lock downs are an extreme to be avoided and I don't think they should be forced in areas that aren't in an extreme situation, but people like these two visiting my bank are what leads to it.

        I guess we should think of what people in the blitz had to contend with perhaps? Today they could have something set up for stress relief and counseling though. This one of those adapt and learn moments, not the magical thinking wishing it away type of thing, and yet I guess that response goes back a long long way. people used to believe in magic amulets and spells and things to ward off illness etc.

        Striking a balance should be top of mind for anyone making rules, people do need visitors sometimes and jobs depend on being able to conduct some business.

          More likely too much effort to put a mask on for a few minutes selfish people about it really annoys me

            The shop at the top of our road nobody seems to wear masks and social distancing does not exist. All the shop owner is interested in is money. Nothing is said to anybody. In fact I think many people use that shop because they are not forced to cover their faces.

              I wish that the Downing Street press briefings would come back on a daily basis, at least on weekdays - I do sometimes feel "disconnected" when they are not on, and one has to rely on news sources for information.

                It's that time of year when we feel as we have got colds coming on - it has happened to me over the past couple of days, but should I be worried more than usual due to COVID at the moment? I hope that I shouldn't have to.

                      No problem there - I can easily self-isolate where I am, but two wrongs don't make a right. I believe that it would have happened without COVID.

                        Sounds good but it will still take time - they say that it might be ready by Christmas, and if that is the case then it will be a great Christmas present.

                          From what i hear there are still a few tests to do before it gets the ok.
                          So im trying to not get too overconfident.

                          It seems older people would get it first and as time goes on it would be given to younger age grps.

                          They say nxt year is most likely for the roll out but i guess perhaps where in the uk u live.

                              Side effects are possible with a new drug.
                              Side effects could differ depending on age gender ethnicity.

                                You can still possibly catch the virus with the vaccine but have mild symptoms.I mean we don't want to catch it after having a vaccine.At present I am 50/50 shall I have the vaccine or not.If people love to travel then you may have no choice no vaccine no traveling does it mean we would have a card or something to prove otherwise
