    Interesting words from Boris today.

    The text before the video seemed promising.. "There is therefore no credible route to a zero COVID Britain or indeed a zero COVID world. And we cannot persist indefinitely with restrictions that debilitate our economy, our physical and mental well-being, and the life chances of our children." But the video was more of the same bullshit, Step 1 - step 2, red light - green light.. Step two for them doesn't start until April 12.

    • Would they have been excluded, because the risk was possibly too high? If so, what is the strategy going forward?

      Becuase the Phase 3 trials excluded immunocompromised individuals. So no data.
      This isn't a dress rehearsal. Enjoy yourself. There's no do-over.

        My thought was that they were in a rush to get the vaccines approved, so they enrolled mostly healthy individuals in the trial. They do not want any potential issues with trial participants to derail their timeline. For people that are immunocompromised and/or with autoimmune disorders, probably best to consult your physician before getting vaccine. Someone I know who is on Keytruda for his lymphoma decided not to take the vaccine after consulting with his oncologist.

            Hate the Cowboys as much as the Habs. And commies.
            Well what do you know. That means that you have not totally gone over to the 'dark side'.

            We might still be able to re-educate you. Or at least sit together during an NFL game.

              And the UK is far ahead of much of the world regarding vaccination rates.

              https://www.bbc.com/news/health-55274833

              According to last night's news in Scotland over 20% of the population has received vaccinations. For the first week of January they were averaging 47,000 'jabs' per day.

              Furthermore the success rate with only one dose is now estimated to be better than originally projected.

              https://www.cidrap.umn.edu/news-pers...boost-efficacy

              So Johnson's statement is nothing new or even much different from what we have been hearing for months.

                  "The OMA is calling for even stricter measures in the province’s colour-coded framework. Among them, banning indoor dining in ‘Red-Control’ zones’ and encouraging stores to offer curbside service instead of allowing customers inside."

                    Hope Ford tells them to go to hell. Covid is only one element of health. People in despair because of lockdown isolation and financial ruin don't seem to gain any sympathy with these unelected publicly funded pontificators. These doc's are ignoring the whole patient, including those in despair and suffering isolation now one year in. They don't care. Not their businesses or jobs at risk.

                      I have wondered if imposing/enforcing strict 'curbside pick-up only' policies might actually provide the smaller, independent stores with an advantage over the big boxes?

                      Possibly because for the past year the majority of our shopping has been conducted at/with the smaller independents or 'chains'. Independent grocer primarily, independent pharmacy, local Home Hardware, local independent mechanic.

                      Would appreciate reading the thoughts/experiences of others regarding this.

                          I dunno about that.

                          I only take my covid advice from actual healthcare professionals....

                          Ones in the field, and all that...

                          But never mind my sarcasm, it's yet another example of how difficult it is for Doug to steer a proper course through this. He's getting polar opposite advice, daily, from experts.

                          Throw out your gold teeth and see how they roll.

                              They certainly don’t know how to balance multiple interests, which is why we elect lawmakers, instead of hiring industry experts to make policy.
