Please welcome our new Health Secretary (replacing Matt Hancock) to the real world.

Health Secretary Sajid Javid tests positive for Covid ...

... despite having received two vaccinations (he says).

most of us wonder why she just refuses to go into full lockdown mode
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 their $'s than lives.

Fixed it for you

Well they'd like to think that it's their $'s. ;-)

Meanwhile here down under in greater Sydney the limo driver outbreak has now hit 1243 infections with another 105 being added today along with another death (another woman in her 90's, vaccine status unknown) taking that total to 4. :-)

Now even our conservative P.M. is imploring Gladys to fully lockdown greater Sydney and put a ring of steel around it (I'm staying away from the local pub until they do).

Of those 76 are now in hospital with 18 of them in ICU and 7 of those are being ventilated. :-(

But with half of Hollywood living and working over here ATM why would Big Brother Australia want to import this covidiot (or even Caitlyn Jenner for that matter)?

Katie Hopkins trolls Sydney’s lockdown from hotel quarantine.

Though her antics are now under investigation.

Well it looks like Hopkins will be leaving Australia broker and sooner than she expected with no reason to be here at all now. LOL


Katie Hopkins axed from Big Brother after possible hotel quarantine breach.

I can't wait to hear what she has to say on her long flight back home. :-D

Unfortunately, indeed what a UK crazy fiasco!

Regardless,

+1
However, returning home early this afternoon, I've been wondering.
Do I have a strange sense of humour or has my sense of history gone astray?
Some weeks ago, was informed that the NHS vaccine centres list has been updated to include more local ones compared to the original lists, which in my case, showed the closest was 28 miles away.
Now includes several within 2-5 miles. Nice
Once checked out the list, booked 2nd jab for last Sunday. Sadly, due to flooding it was shut.
Rebooked for this morning job done.
Know for a fact I was not "badged" at the 1st jab but no problem, also can't recall getting the same lot of docs as today.
Who needs vaccine passports, just carry the card you get, in fact it does state in red: Make sure you keep this record card in your purse or wallet.
Then they "badged" me (done before I could ask or object).

Well that covidiot Katie Hopkins has now had her visa cancelled by the Home Affairs Minister and she'll be on a plane heading home this afternoon (I wonder if she had her clothes on for that bit of news). :-)

Meanwhile the U.K. has taken 1st spot in the new daily case list for the 2nd day in a row from Indonesia. :-O

And with the recent surge in infections happening in the U.S. (led by the state of Trumpsville) the completion and grand opening of the 35M+ clubhouse is imminent, but we just have to wait for all those states and counties over there that don't report there numbers anymore over weekends to find out exactly when that will be.

Here we should have the bulk of our daily numbers in over the next 3hrs to see had badly Gladys' lockdown is doing which word has it that won't be good. :-(

Real world cause-and-effect:


'Pingdemic' threatens shop openings
wrote:
Supermarkets have warned they will have to cut opening hours or even shut shops if the number of workers forced to self-isolate continues to rise.

M&S said the number of workers being notified by the NHS app is rising exponentially, and it may have to reduce hours...

"... there's a risk that there won't be sufficient staff to open shops."...


Note that:

  • We have a highly contagious/infectious virus that has very successfully made a pandemic.

  • We have relaxed/removed all restrictions to getting infected.

  • (Hence!) We have rapidly increasing infections.

  • We have an 'app' that reports some of those likely to become infected.

  • (Hence!) The 'app' is reporting exponentially more people likely to be infected...



Cause. Effect. Consequences.

Where/how does that somehow not make sense to people?


Stay safe folks!!

And for a further consequence that is no surprise...


Global shares slide amid Covid economic recovery fears
wrote:
Stock markets across the UK, Europe and the US dropped sharply on Monday on fears that rising numbers of Covid cases will hamper economic recovery.

London's FTSE 100 fell 2.6% to below the 7,000 level...

In New York, the Dow Jones Industrial Average tumbled by more than 2% while major share indexes in France and Germany also fell.

In England, most remaining Covid restrictions were lifted on Monday.

However, new cases are continuing to rise in some countries fuelled by the Delta variant of the virus.

Meanwhile, businesses in the UK have described how they are cutting opening hours, closing shops or may have to reduce production as employees are forced to self-isolate...



There are Consequences...

Well I thought it fairly simple Martin, there are 220 countries (along with 2 ships) in the lists so the 1st lot of numbers are either case or death number groupings while the next figures are position numbers that occupy those groups. All those numbers in white are from a post I made on the 30th November last year (my time) while everything in red is as of yesterday so as to compare how things have moved over that time period.

I'm sorry (I'm a "numbers" person), but I hope that clears things up (maybe?).

I have no real idea except that maybe no country wanted to claim them. We wore the Ruby Princess' numbers of 28 deaths and 822 cases which was certainly worse that the Diamond Princess' numbers.
