    Song Title Game

    The hyphen ‐ is a punctuation mark used to join words and to separate syllables of a single word For the duration of this game hyphenated words have been taken as the highlighted definition (ie a single word). The song title you followed is not Go - Go as you posted above (with a gap between go and the hyphen, and another between the hyphen and the second go) but Go-Go, no gaps, clearly meant as one word.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    In this instance, my initial post concerned an article discussing cases so cases is what I'm discussing.

    Here we go again, you're morbid pre-occupation with deaths. The article in Vince's link refers to 'infections' so I did too. The idea of lockdowns was to lower the number of cases and ease pressure on hospitals.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Is that what happened here in November? Yes. On the 2nd Nov, the first day of the circuit breaker lockdown there were 19000 cases. In the next few days that number went up to 25000 cases, reaching a peak of 33000 on the twelfth. The number then started dropping steadily to 12000 cases on the 30th, the last day of the 28 day lockdown. That's without a vaccine. 'Israel locked down on December 27, with infections among the over-65s continuing to rise until mid-January, peaking at around 55 cases per 100,000. That's a similar pattern However, when people began to receive their second Pfizer dose, cases dropped markedly, to 30 per 100,000, declining further as more people received the jab.' - and that's what happened here, without the vaccine, back in November. That's my point. Not comparing the effectiveness of one against the other but that even after the beginning of a lockdown cases will rise for a few days as more previously infected cases come to light before a drop caused by the lockdown starts showing. Just as numbers will not drop the first day of vaccinations as already infected cases come to light. But that article implies that cases went up despite the imposition of a lockdown as if that was unexpected and that the drop only happened as a result of the vaccinations starting. Again, despite never posting that I am against lockdowns, I do accept and have previously posted that the elected Government are the body to decide the management of a pandemic but if it makes you happy to insist I'm a 'lockdown luvvy' then fine. Given a choice between the two I'd rather that than incarcerate uninfected pensioners whilst allowing infected younger folk to run free, however you dress that procedure up. As for my thought on the jabs, I have had both mine and am more than happy to see the introduction of some form of jab passport if it allows free movement to be reintroduced. I wouldn't be happy for the UK to be the instigators of such a document but if other countries introduce them then we need to follow suit. I am not comparing lockdowns and vaccinations as I believe they both do a job although obviously, now we have them, vaccines are preferable for the reasons you post. My post was intended as a criticism of the way the article you posted a link to was written and the somewhat inaccurate way it was comparing the two methods.

    From that article:- 'Israel locked down on December 27, with infections among the over-65s continuing to rise until mid-January, peaking at around 55 cases per 100,000. However, when people began to receive their second Pfizer dose, cases dropped markedly, to 30 per 100,000, declining further as more people received the jab.' Wouldn't that be par for the course? Infection numbers would rise for a couple of weeks into a lockdown since people would still get infected on the days leading up to the lockdown and these will show in the next two weeks or so. I would even hazard a guess that the pre-lockdown scramble in shops to get provisions into folks' larders and freezers could raise the infection level a tad.
