Re: Covid: Vaccine uptake among over-50s hits 95% in England

Let's just qualify the title of this thread. In England as of today, 95% of over 50s have taken the first dose and 33% of over 50s have taken the second dose. The following chart shows the average and current rate of uptake: vaccination-rate-20210422.jpg In the above chart, the average dose rate ha...

Re: Booster shots

Yet you have an opinion, based on absolutely no understanding...and feel Ok in rejecting the advice of the vast majority of those who are actually qualified.. and call it all lies! Please explain?? But strangely enough the poster has shown in his postings here a far greater grasp of the relevant su...

Re: Before Mike Yeadon, we had Michael Levitt

As we are in a low point in the covid cycle this will be dominated by people admitted to hospital with other conditions that happen to have covid. Given the fact that 11x higher proportion of NHS patients have covid cf. the general population, how can your above statement be plausible? Please expla...

Re: Before Mike Yeadon, we had Michael Levitt

It is difficult to tell -- the NHS continue to insist on reporting admissions 'with' covid, not 'because of' covid. As we are in a low point in the covid cycle this will be dominated by people admitted to hospital with other conditions that happen to have covid. I'm not saying that there isn't a pr...

Re: Before Mike Yeadon, we had Michael Levitt

India has a median age of 28.4 and there are lots of deaths there. There's a lot of out-of-context media coverage of deaths in India. Per capita, the Indian deaths are somewhere between Finland and Norway. The growth in cases in India is huge and so will the subsequent death toll. It is totally wro...

Re: Why vaccinate people under 50 years of age?

Just using the words "selection pressure" is not an explanation. Plenty of explanations but i assume you skipped GCSE Biology. Just as when we're TRYING to encourage specific traits in a lab you create an environment hostile to wild type and one which is slightly less hostile to the mutant required...

Re: Why vaccinate people under 50 years of age?

I suppose I would agree that AZ is even worse as a vaccine. The surge testing due to SA in London highlights that. The outbreak started in a fully vaccinated care home. Although nobody got seriously sick, just about everyone got infected. So quite clearly there their AZ placebo stopped serious illn...
