    The Telegraph suggests that the success of the UK's vaccination programme means Britain is no longer in a pandemic but is now in an endemic, as new data showed the vaccination programme is reducing symptomatic Covid infections by up to 90%.

    The research by Oxford University/ONS prompts the Daily Mail to declare that "jabs are the path out of the crisis" and complains that the prime minister is "stubbornly refusing to speed up lifting lockdown".

    Hmmm .... we can see now why Boris lauded Lockdown rather than Vaccinations ten days ago to justify government policy.


    And wasn't there reports of Dr Hillary Jones arguing the same as Boris earlier this week with a pub landlord

    Well had my jab yesterday...woke up at 1-00am and couldn't get back to sleep feeling shivery. Suffering with a headache but other than that fine! :t:

    That sounds exactly like my mum. She couldn't sleep, was shivery and had headache. Took a couple of days before she felt better

    My friend had her vaccine jab yesterday and hasn't felt as ill for a very long time...worse than having flu she tells me.

    My mum was same after she had her jab on Wednesday. She felt sick, shaking and aching all over for a couple of days. Better now though

    Well, that’s a lot of graphs but you haven’t said what the Covid deaths figures were for each month!

    There’s no point in using case figures as we’ve seen over the last month that our government’s very own daily cases figures from tests, which have shown a 50% decrease, are not an accurate indicator according to the ONS and Imperial College studies which show that cases have remained at the same level.

    But doesn't the Zoe App suggested they are coming down and they also explaining the timing difference in the video on youtube last week

    Yes something that confuses/staggers me in equal doses. We have one in Harrogate laying idle and has done for the duration...never really understood the lack of thought that seemed, initially, a good initiative.

    In Cardiff there was the hospital at the Principality Stadium which they kept on in the summer and early autumn but have now dismantled. Though the original suggestion was they were going to fit out a smaller version by the Heath hospital

    Despite the Worldwide pandemic that is devastating mankind and causing frenzied calls to Cancel Christmas, BBC reports:



    “The latest hospital occupancy data has been published in England. It shows in the week ending 13 December, 89% of beds were occupied, leaving 10,500 empty beds.

    That means hospitals were actually busier this time last year, when 95% of beds were occupied.“

    We have about 89,000 hospital beds and 18,038 have patients who have tested positive.

    You missed the part of the report which said that there were 8000 fewer beds available this year.

    So 95% of 97000 would have been 92150 patients in hospital

    This year 89% of 89000 would be 79210 patients in hospital so there are 12940 fewer in hospital

    Except of course the current plan is not to impose any vaccine to anybody within the UK. It will be available to those like me who choose to have it.

    You fell for that one didn't you. :rolleyes:

    Didn’t say they are. Just a general comment that the government doesn’t seem to mind breaking laws. Even those they had agreed to themselves

    IT would be of great help to all sides of this argument if the government, Sage or whoever would actually differentiate between those who die because of Covid-19 rather than just with it. There is a distinction.

    Think it would help if they also showed hospital admissions and current mortality against data for this year normally

    So here we go again 

    You and old toasted Crumpet posting information that has no credible link.. 

    Can you explain why the time is noted as GMT PLUS 8 because that does not relate to Sweden. 

    Are you posting more untruths Blu ?


    Pretty easy to find Swedish info


    There is a chart showing announced deaths and then 2nd chart on date of death. Lower down there are testing results and there is also info by region on numbers in hospital and in icu

    So the latest figures are out:

    Week Ending 14th September:

    Deaths in England and Wales: 9811

    Number of deaths involving Covid-19: 99 (up from 78)  = 26.9% increase

    Number of deaths involving flu/pneumonia: 1127 (Up from 874) = 28.9% increase.

    Flu-pneumonia involved in 11.38 x more deaths.


    Got to be careful with %. Reporting will probably say that that deaths up by 27% where the numbers are 21. The increase in flu/pneumonia represents 253. Seems odd we are more worried about the 21 than the 253
