My worse concerns have become fact.
Whether or not it is an isolated incident is now the question.
Overheard a conversation in the office so asked my supervisor, it is true.
A work colleague caught Covid from her boyfriend so is now self isolating & has being doing so for close to 2 weeks now.
Hmm, they kept that quiet..
The issue is - She has had both jabs.
So...


I have heard no one of repute stating that someone fully vaccinated say one will not catch the coronavirus after. The question is, how bad will the disease get for her?

Does anyone know what 95% effective means?

No surprises here for the UK unmasking:


Nissan sees 10% of workforce told to self-isolate
wrote:
Production at Nissan's Sunderland car plant has been hit by hundreds of staff being alerted and forced to isolate by the NHS Test and Trace app.

It is understood that up to 900 workers have been sent home from the plant, more than 10% of the total workforce.

Case numbers in the local area have been rising sharply, meaning that it has been difficult to avoid disruption...

... The problem is especially acute in restaurants and pubs, with UK Hospitality boss Kate Nicholls saying that in some cases, up to one-third of staff have been forced to stay at home....

Covid-19 rules: How six countries fared after easing Covid rules
wrote:
... Several countries around the world have already tried easing their coronavirus restrictions this year - with mixed results.

So what has happened in places where rules have been relaxed?...



What is it with all the euphemisms whilst we are talking about peoples' lives and whether they live or die or how many disabilities the 25% long-term non-dead victims suffer?

Organisers of the Tokyo Olympics say one athlete and five workers have tested positive for coronavirus - just eight days before the opening ceremony.
They did not disclose any details.
On Wednesday, a staff member of the Russian women's rugby team was admitted to hospital after testing positive in Munakata, in western Japan.
Also on Wednesday, a coronavirus cluster was identified at a hotel hosting a number of Brazilian athletes in Hamamatsu, central Japan.
Tokyo reported 1,308 new infections on Thursday - the highest number since January.

... What is it with all the euphemisms whilst we are talking about peoples' lives and whether they live or die or how many disabilities the 25% long-term non-dead victims suffer?

Meanwhile, we have the stark contrasts of:


Covid: More than 500,000 app pings in a single week
wrote:
More than half a million isolation alerts were sent to people using the NHS Covid-19 app in England and Wales during the first week of July.

Some 530,126 alerts telling people to self-isolate were sent in the week to 7 July, a 46% rise on the previous week...

... Cases have increased 32.6% over the last week. Prime Minister Boris Johnson had previously warned there could be 50,000 cases a day by 19 July - when most legal restrictions are due to end in England.

Latest government figures also show a further 63 Covid deaths...


Melbourne: Australian city enters snap lockdown with 18 cases
wrote:
The Australian state of Victoria - home to its second largest city, Melbourne - has begun a snap lockdown after two more local cases of the virus.

The latest outbreak brings the total number of virus cases there to 18...



Which way works 'best'?

And for whom?

Some per capita numbers about blood clot deaths due to vaccines and covid deaths, https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-tyne-57848367
There is a known likely side-effect to the AstraZeneca vaccine that is very rare, known as vaccine-induced thrombosis and thrombocytopenia (VITT). That's a condition where clots form in combination with low platelet levels, and that is something that doesn't happen naturally. Therefore, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) thinks there is a strong likelihood that it is the vaccine causing this.
There have been almost 400 cases - most after the first dose - with 71 deaths, so it's about one death per 650,000 doses.

There is some suggestion there's a slightly higher risk in women than men but it's not absolutely clear, and slightly higher incidence in young people. That is why initially the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) said initially people under 30 should not have the AstraZeneca vaccine, which they changed to under 40 in May.
All medicines including vaccines have risks as well as benefits. For individuals and society, you have to set that against the risks you are trying to prevent, which is Covid.

With Covid there have been something like 1,900 deaths per one million people in the UK and Covid itself is known to be a serious cause of clots.

Something like one in five people hospitalised with Covid will end up with clots.

To equalise the UK numbers, that's about;

AstraZeneca vaccine - 3 deaths in 2 million
Unvaccinated - 3,800 deaths in 2 million.

Stay cautious and safe, whatever your age:


Covid: Younger adults still at risk of serious organ damage
wrote:
Younger adults admitted to hospital with Covid are almost as likely to suffer from complications as those over 50 years old, a study has found.

Four in 10 of those between 19 and 49 developed problems with their kidneys, lungs or other organs while treated.

The research looked at 73,197 adults of all ages across 302 UK hospitals in the first wave of Covid in 2020.

"The message is that this is not just a disease of the elderly and frail,"...

... the risk was high even in young, previously healthy individuals...

... "We do know from other infectious diseases that these sorts of problems with your kidneys or heart can develop into longer-term complications," ... "I think it's reasonable to expect that this may be the same with Covid-19."

Media hysteria?
Scientific bickering?
Pharmaceutical propaganda?
Who knows?
Haven't trusted SAGE since they appointed Cummings & his B/S. About the only good thing in that report is:
Despite estimates suggesting half of people given the jab would still be vulnerable to getting infected, all of the jabs offer high levels of protections against hospitalisation and death.

The world's total case tally has now passed 190.3 million while deaths have exceeded 4,092,000. :-(

At the top end of the death list Tunisia removed Portugal from a short lived 34th place after Bangladesh hopped over Portugal and Bolivia to claim 32nd as Chile replaced Romania in 20th spot and now onto that case list.

The Isle of Man passed Mauritius, but they remain in 193rd place as the British Virgin Islands coasted by the Caribbean Netherlands and both of them to claim 192nd, Saint Martin nudged Sao Tome/Principe out of 188th while Sint Maarten was displaced from 184th by Monaco, Laos took 181st from Liechtenstein as Guinea-Bissau moved into 179th past Comoros, the Channel Islands sailed on past Sierra Leone and Eritrea into 168th and Timor-Leste finally became the 160th member of the 10K+ club.

Hong Kong was removed from 155th by Lesotho, the Bahamas passed Martinique and Togo passed Mali, but they remain in 151st & 146th as Fiji took another flight over them and 7 other countries to land in 143rd as Haiti claimed 136th from Mayotte, Malawi slipped past Angola, but they also remain in 120th because Vietnam took flight over them and 4 other countries to touchdown in 117th, Rwanda replaced Jamaica in 115th while Cambodia took Singapore out of 111th and Zimbabwe passed the Maldives to take over 108th spot.

Botswana jumped past Cameroon and El Salvador into 105th place, Mozambique sipped past China to take over 101st while Latvia was taken out of 91st by Afghanistan, Myanmar disposed of Bosnia/Herzegovina and Libya to claim 80th as Cuba leapt over Moldova, Slovenia and Bahrain into 74th, Honduras replaced Ethiopia in 72nd and even though Ireland passed Lithuania they still remain in 70th because Sri Lanka jumped over both to take up 69th spot.

Thailand hopped over Croatia and then Uruguay to move into 59th spot, Kazakhstan swept Ecuador from 46th as Morocco displaced Lebanon from 42nd, Bangladesh basted Romania out of 28th while South Africa flung Ukraine from 17th and India has reopened the 31M+ clubhouse after 3 months of being deserted.

Meanwhile here down under Sydney's limo driver outbreak now numbers 1138 along with 3 deaths (along with several border leaks) and Gladys is slowly starting to turn her softdown into a proper lockdown, but most of us wonder why she just refuses to go into full lockdown mode which really should've been done 4 weeks ago and we could've been near the end of this outbreak by now instead of it constantly spreading further. :-(

Anyhow, until next time stay safe and sensible.

Because she like Boris is a lousy manager and not a Leader.

To quote General Patton - “A good plan, violently executed now, is better than a perfect plan next week.”

To me it's just more evidence that conservative politicians are more worried about the $'s than lives.
