The government is saying that Covid has a 1% fatality rate.

So with 100,000 deaths, they’re saying there has been only 10 million cases.

Despite the ONS saying we have had between 650,000 and 1.2 million cases for each of the last 12 weeks, not counting the first wave!

Something’s wrong with their calculations.

That's 1% in over 60s isn't it? although they say the new strain might be as high as 1.4%.

Is there another virus that has a similar fatality rate in over 60's?

There is if death from all causes is allowed on the field of play...

Yes, I heard the “for a man in his sixties” remark and assumed he was the best example of the average case, with his risk of 1% being the same as the overall average of 1%.

Obviously it’s much higher for 80 year olds and much lower for 30 year olds.

Not really a virus but does choking on a toasted teacake count ?

Would the Tories really vote to allow people to sit on their backsides?

Twelve months ago I would have said no. Now anything's possible. Let's face it, if anyone is still furloughed, 10 months down the line, they haven't got a job. They're just kicking the can further and further down the road...

Yet people are still too dull to see what all these Govts. are doing.

It's all in the open and people are blind to it.Probably because it's not on Aunty Beeb or in the Daily Mirror.

I am at the moment in my third furloughed period working within the tourism industry as I do. The attraction I work at in York is quite strong in its resilience towards adversity (having suffered catastrophic flooding five years ago) and no doubt will survive in one shape or another considering that York is very reliant on tourism as regards revenue. However it will prove very testing how the various attractions cope with all the uncertainty and no doubt some will go under.

Are you saying UBI would be a good thing or a bad one?

Don’t we effectively have that already with means-tested benefits?

I'm guessing that's where we'll diverge.

This Government are not Tories and the agenda they're working to is not a Conservative one. Far from it.

I’m not sure what you’re warning against though.

What is it?

And how is a universal living wage involved?

On my second furlough and when hospitality reopens I will be back at work. My employer has already made a fair few redundant but don’t see anymore if hospitality opens around May.

I agree on some jobs they are kicking the can down the road.

Government dependence is never a two way street, control is the name of the game. Its all laid out in plain view on the WEF website...
