Re: Booster shots

You're literally arguing for no more travel ever. I'm literally arguing the exact opposite. I just explicitly said it's not about a forever ban. Right now we are accumulating travellers from India infected with the new B.1.617 variant. If there's only a few of them, we've got a chance of tracking a...

Re: Booster shots

Again you're arguing to never ever return to normal. Have peoples lives controlled by arbitrary medical testing to be allowed to do something. Why are you so against normal life? Ok, you need to make a leap of imagination into the actual behaviour of governments, rather than what you believe they s...

Re: Booster shots

Why do you want that insanity?!. ....Variants are going to happen whether there's travel or not. I'm saying I want anything. I'm simply stating that they will resort to lockdown again if things get bad enough.. So if it comes to a choice between sacrificing the travel industry, or all industry (inc...

Re: Booster shots

It's going to be interesting how they manage the booster shots project. Variants can come to light at any time. Yes, and this is the reason why, of all industries, it's travel that's hardest to get back to normal. Continued restrictions both reduce the instance of new variants, and give us a sporti...

Re: Latest News Fron the BBC ??

Perhaps you could quantify that risk for me. It's not possible to quantify the effects of a programme when we have no idea how many people it will reach. I'm making a point about principle: the pros and cons of vaccinating the young extend beyond the direct covid risk for the individual. This is co...

Re: Latest News Fron the BBC ??

You can see how vaccination makes very little sense at all for the under 30's - it certainly isn't for their benefit is it? Vaccination of the young reduces the risk to all their vulnerable friends and relatives. is that a bad thing? It makes a very substantial reduction in case numbers possible, w...

Re: Anti-vaxx

True, people are being injected. True, the death rate is falling for the second time. And unrelated. It is amazing that anyone can still cling to this kind of extreme position. It's not just the overall figure which is falling. It's also the differential figures within groups with high vaccination ...

Re: Report: vaccines no better than immune system

Once again, another thread which encourages vaccine scepticism. Vaccines are by far our most likely way out of this mess. But you want to make them fail. My wife works in a local GP. Now they're hitting younger groups there's definitely more vaccine scepticism. However, some people who refused the j...

Re: Vaccine vs Covid itself

In the UK we've had 101 deaths of those under 44 without pre-existing conditions and 542 under 60. Were the (alleged) vaccine deaths in people with pre-existing conditions too? In which case, you should correct your figure to zero, because these people have no statistical significance in your view.

Re: URGENT OPEN LETTER FROM DOCTORS AND SCIENTISTS TO THE EUROPEAN MEDICINES AGENCY REGARDING COVID-19 VACCINE SAFETY

Lord Bethel thinks a mutant strain of the coronavirus will occur due to the prevailing conditions here in Britain, due to the high infection rate and the large amount of suppression of the virus by lockdown or vaccine. There are already multiple new mutant strains, all of which arose in the absence...
