Here in the UK, as the darker colder weather of winter approaches, we are not looking at all prepared for the inevitable unhealthy demands on out health service...


Why the NHS is struggling like never before
wrote:
Lives are being put at risk with record long waits in accident-and-emergency units and [emergency] calls taking hours to be reached. The causes of this go beyond Covid - and with winter coming it looks set to get worse...

... When the pandemic hit, about a quarter of adults in the UK were living with chronic illnesses.

With support and care disrupted and Covid making people more isolated and less active, their health has suffered. According to those working in the NHS, they are now turning up to hospital in ever greater numbers. And it is this as much as Covid that is driving the rise in demand on the NHS...

... Alongside Covid cases, they are seeing more frail elderly people being admitted as well as significant numbers of people with alcohol and mental health-related problems.

Like at nearly all hospitals, A&E waiting times have worsened and quality of care is suffering, with patients spending hours on trolleys because there are no beds available...

... The concern is being felt at the very top of the organisation too. "We are in such a tight spot, there is no room for manoeuvre," ... "It can't go on."...

... It meant the UK entered the pandemic in a "vulnerable position" when you combine both funding and population health...

... In one of the worst cases, a backlog [queue] of more than 20 ambulances was reported at one hospital...

... "Hospitals are full and running pretty much on one in and one out," ... And it seems little can be done to prevent the situation deteriorating as winter hits.

The government is putting extra money in - but it will have limited effect without extra staff and they are simply unavailable...



All too little too late to help and people needlessly die. Many more unnecessarily suffer.

And covid and the winter flu will add to the overload to undoubtedly kill people.


How did this come to pass?

Note also the ongoing privatization (for profit) and dismantling of the NHS services... See: Stop Boris Johnson’s private takeover bill


Unbelievable?

Stay safe folks!

By the end of the last reporting period the world's total case number passed 255.6 million and total deaths passed 5,137,900.

The only change in the top 50 of the death list was Bulgaria replacing Belgium in 30th spot so I'll get onto the case list now.

The Caribbean Netherlands replaced Bhutan in 203rd place, the Cayman Islands took flight over Monaco, Sao Tome/Principe, Saint Martin, Liechtenstein, Antigua/Barbuda, Comoros and finally Sint Maarten to make a stopover in 191st while Gibraltar and Guinea-Bissau both slipped past Sierra Leone into 181st & 182nd respectively, New Caledonia displaced the C.A.R. from 173rd as Djibouti was removed from 168th by Equatorial Guinea, Iceland took 163rd off of Andorra and Barbados sailed past Lesotho, the Bahamas, the Seychelles and Somalia to claim 147th spot.

Guyana now has their nose now ahead of Gabon in 138th spot, Malta along with Mauritania advanced passed Cabo Verde to move into 135th & 136th as Eswatini was displaced from 128th by Syria, Laos leapt over Fiji, Guadeloupe and Réunion into 123rd while Trinidad/Tobago jumped over the Ivory Coast and Malawi to claim 119th, Montenegro removed Mozambique from 102nd and Australia took 97th place from Uzbekistan.

Albania has taken 95th place by a nose from Botswana, North Macedonia replaced Zambia in 92nd while Nigeria was removed from 90th by Estonia, Singapore jumped over Qatar and Latvia into 86th as Slovenia kicked Honduras out of 74th, South Korea passed both Uruguay and the Dominican Republic to become the 71st member of the 400K+ club and Denmark rolled over Palestine into 67th spot.

Ireland became the 63rd country to enter the 500K+ clubhouse, Croatia booted Saudi Arabia out of 59th spot after it was passed by Sri Lanka and before Slovakia passed the lot as well as Costa Rica and Azerbaijan to claim 54th, Jordan became the 44th member of the 900K+ club as Austria passed Hungry before both passed Morocco, Kazakhstan and Cuba to move into 28th & 29th, Chile zipped past Japan into 28th while Germany became the 12th country to enter the 5M+ clubhouse before passing both Colombia and Spain to takeover 10th and the U.S. earlier opened up their new 48M+ clubhouse.

Well that completes this update so until next time stay COVID safe and get jabbed if you havn't already.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-59343650
Days after Austria imposed a lockdown on the unvaccinated, it has announced a full national Covid-19 lockdown starting on Monday.

Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg said it would last a maximum of 20 days and there would be a legal requirement to get vaccinated from 1 February 2022.

For a long time, there had been a consensus over avoiding mandatory vaccinations, the chancellor said. However, too many people had been incited not to get the jab, because of "too many political forces, flimsy vaccination opponents and fake news", he added. The measures are yet to be finalised.

If you want to attend this year's Australian Open then you will have to be fully vaccinated, and that includes the players as well.

Players must be vaccinated for Australian Open - tournament chief.

Also here down under, the covidiot morons took to the streets again today to voice their stupidity. :-(

Thousands of protesters chant and storm streets for ‘freedom rallies’.

There are very very many more covid victims that have died. Very many more than the few that have died from any vaccine.

Also, considering that the vaccines do not have the nasty full viral payload of covid, those very few poor souls that were unable to tolerate the vaccine, they very likely will have been killed by covid itself. For everyone else, the vaccine greatly helps against covid. After all, how many millions of vaccinated people could be wrong?

No need for any arithmetic: Go get vaccinated. Total no brainer.


Or... Suffer Darwin/God/Diety/Fate in action and take your random chances with the covid fest, unprotected, unprepared... Very many have. Too many have died.

That story is real. Covid is out there in the real world and continues.


Stay safe folks,
Martin

Just in on the real world news for here in the UK:


People urged to get booster jabs to keep your family protected this Christmas
wrote:
... Booster jabs and second doses will protect the progress we have already made through our phenomenal vaccination programme, ensuring we can enjoy Christmas safely. People are encouraged to come forward for their jabs as soon as they are eligible to get the best possible protection ahead of winter.

New data this week further highlighted how important the booster jab is. The first real-world study on the effectiveness of booster vaccines by the UK Health Security Agency shows top-up jabs boost protection back up to over 90% against symptomatic COVID-19 in adults aged over 50...

... This means people who have had their booster vaccine by 11 December will have very high protection against COVID-19 by Christmas Day.

Following a rise in cases and a return of lockdown restrictions in Europe, those eligible for a booster have been urged to take up the offer as soon as possible to protect themselves, their families and ... the NHS...

Also, scanning the headlines of my selection of news sources, there does look to be a very real sense of concerned/worried urgency to convince everyone to get vaccinated to try to avert/avoid a plunge into lockdowns for Christmas.


Stay safe folks!

ps: I'm already fully vaccinated against both flu and covid. Very well worth the hassle to go out to get jabbed.

Well it's time for another update and at the end of the last reporting period (even though not all the numbers are in yet) the world's total case count officially exceeded million while total deaths official passed .

Position changes in the top 50 of the death list were Portugal replacing Japan in 40th spot, the Netherlands jumped over Myanmar and Bolivia to land in 37th as Vietnam removed Iraq from 33rd, Hungary chewed Ecuador out of 23rd while the Ukraine took 17th from Poland, Germany became the 15th country to enter the 100K+ death clubhouse and the U.K. retook 7th place from Indonesia.

On the case list the changes were the Caribbean Netherlands sailing past the British Virgin Islands and Saint Kitts/Nevis into 201st place, the Faeroe Islands replaced Turks/Caicos in 199th while Liechtenstein slipped past Antigua/Barbuda to claim 194th, the Cayman Islands took flight over Chad, St. Vincent Grenadines, Dominica, Bermuda, San Marino, Liberia and Grenada to land in 184th as Gibraltar took 180th from Niger, New Zealand jumped over Yemen and Gambia to become the 176th member of the 10K+ club and the Channel Islands took flight over Burkina Faso, Aruba, Andorra and Taiwan to make a stopover in 162nd spot.

Iceland took wing over Aruba, Taiwan, Mali, Tajikistan and Mali to perch in 159th spot, Nicaragua slipped past both Tajikistan and Mali into 158th as the Seychelles replaced Somalia in 148th, Haiti removed Benin from 145th while French Polynesia leapt over Sudan, Madagascar and Martinique to claim 131st, Réunion slipped past the D.R.C. into 123rd and Laos flew over the D.R.C., the Ivory Coast, Malawi and Angola to land in 119th and Trinidad/Tobago bumped Angola out of 118th place.

The Maldives sailed past Jamaica into 114th place, Cyprus leapfrogged Uganda, Namibia and Ghana to takeover 104th while Australia humped over Botswana and Albania to become the 95th member of the 200K+ club, Norway bounced over Qatar and Latvia to hit 87th as Singapore kicked Kenya out of 85th, Honduras was taken out of 75th by Mongolia and Slovenia zipped passed Uruguay to become the 76th member of the 400K+ club, then they tripped up the Dominican Republic to claim 72nd spot.

South Korea gave Kuwait the boot out of 70th spot, Denmark took 66th from Lithuania as Ireland leapt past Myanmar, Ecuador and Bolivia to land in 60th, Croatia hopped over Sri Lanka, Costa Rica and Azerbaijan to land in 55th while Slovakia became the 54th country to enter the 600K+ club before taking 53rd off of Guatemala, Nepal was removed from 46th place by Georgia and Greece became the 45th member of the 900K+ club.

Switzerland jumped over Morocco and Cuba into 41st place, Kazakhstan took 40th from Cuba while Hungary became the 39th member of the 1M+ club after Austria became the 38th, Vietnam dumped Portugal out of 36th, as Belgium blew Bangladesh out of 30th, Czechia became the 25th country to enter the 2M+ clubhouse and Poland sped into 16th spot by passing the flying Ukraine.

Germany regained 9th spot by passing Argentina as Brazil became the 3rd member of the 22M+ club and the U.K. will become the 4th member of the 10M+ club during this reporting period while the U.S. will also celebrate the grand opening of their brand new 49M+ clubhouse (they may even have the grand opening of their brand new 800K+ death clubhouse at the same time).

Anyhow that it's for now.

The COVID immunisation rates here for the 24th have been released with the national 1st dose average of eligible population (12yrs and over) is now 91.9% while fully dosed average is up to 86%.

The A.C.T. still leads the way with over 99% being single dosed while 98% are fully dosed.
N.S.W. comes in next with 94.5% being single dosed while 92.2% are fully dosed.
Victoria comes in 3rd with 93.2% being single dosed while 90% are fully dosed.
Tasmania has now risen above the national average with 93.2% being single dosed while 86% are fully dosed.
S.A. leads the chain draggers with 88.2% being single dosed while 79% are fully dosed.
The N.T. comes in next with 86.8% being single dosed while 74.8% are fully dosed.
Queensland are struggling to stay off the bottom of the barrel with 85.6% being single dosed while 74.9% are fully dosed.
W.A. comes in last with 85.3% being single dosed while 74.2% are fully dosed.

Hopefully those numbers might encourage some other countries to do better, so don't be a covidiot and get those jabs in. ;-)
