    New Restrictions for Wales announced for after Boxing Day

    Or ignore that children have been away from school leading to the drop and will increase again in a week or two as they all begin to mingle again! Be interesting to see what he says and does then!

    What is the Covid-19 Exit Strategy of 'Zero Covid' countries such as Australia and New Zealand?

    Very interesting to read about the plan and pain of a zero covid policy in China. I wonder whether they will shift their strategy over the next few months, or whether they stick with it, so the government continues to appear like they have done a brilliant job...

    Omicron variant and the measures implemented in response to it

    It would have been very risky to put in tough restrictions which would lead to increased suicides, impacting mental health, impacting millions of hospitality and self employed workers, impacted vulnerable women, impacting peoples health. I could go on… Based on previous pandemics, it is well...

    Hopefully it will knock some sense into him and he get realizes that a lot of people who are isolating are actually fine and may not be infectious in the first place!

    Omicron variant and the measures implemented in response to it

    His speech has been good until This could end up in disaster if key workers take daily tests, as this will only result in increased absences (where a good portion will be perfectly fine) and will heavily impact national services, which could harm the health of the nation. I hope they have...

    Omicron variant and the measures implemented in response to it

    Definitely, its like they wrote it in mid-December and only just now published it [plus it's funny that they call it 'Exclusive'.....] ? BBC presenting a completely different view at the moment which is more realistic. Never heard of these guys, but I was slightly amused at their stupidity...

    Omicron variant and the measures implemented in response to it

    Good to see Andrew coming out with this view, however I am slightly confused by this sentence which appears to contradict himself? What are we falling way behind on? We have done well with vaccines take-up? His whole article is about there not being a huge need to have everyone jabbed every 6...

    Omicron variant and the measures implemented in response to it

    I would have agreed with you until the second vaccination programme had completed, but not any more. We are now just facing a mild version and we have now protected everyone who wants to be protected. If you are unable to physically work, then stay at home, otherwise continue as normal just like...

    Omicron variant and the measures implemented in response to it

    What I find interesting is that either some countries are doing very little testing or they are facing a huge death rate from Covid (maybe due to lack of vaccinations?). Compare the cases & deaths in UK, -v- Germany, Russia, USA and the percentage of deaths from cases is quite varied.

    Omicron variant and the measures implemented in response to it

    From the Telegraph reported on 4th December 2021 but unfortunately behind a pay wall: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2021/12/04/covid-causing-just-one-five-excess-deaths-parts-england/ I await the strategy, policy and government spending requirements information from poster D1537 to ensure...

    Omicron variant and the measures implemented in response to it

    Plus there are likely to be hundred of thousands in the Uk who have covid and are showing no symptoms as they go about their daily business. Covid is here to stay and testing/ isolating has to stop now that covid is now mild plus huge benefits of vaccines and treatments now available.

    Omicron variant and the measures implemented in response to it

    Great to see that the numbers of people being admitted to hospital in London with covid has been reducing over the last two days (first graph). On 31st December, only 319 patients admitted, which is below the 400 threshold the NHS consider manageable. Still slight increases in overall numbers...
