    Our total reliance on a vaccine and putting life on hold until it's rolled out

    There's no evidence that any of the vaccines stop transmission.

    Vaccine Progress, Approval, and Deployment

    Apparently Nottinghamshire, with a population of 800,000 people is planning to do 80,000 vaccinations a week, which would presumably vaccinate the whole county in 10 weeks. Covid: Target for 80,000 vaccinations every week by January in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire | West Bridgford Wire

    Do they have any background in Medicine or logistics?

    Life after the end of "lockdown" 2.0

    The same is true all the time, every hospital risks being overloaded, however they are not usually; this is how risks work, it's about probabilities.

    Vaccine Progress, Approval, and Deployment

    Given that the plan vaccinates the most vulnerable, I don't know if we need vaccine-induced herd immunity to start easing things off. It doesn't matter if it spreads if the vulnerable are protected?

    Oxford Vaccine phase three trial suggests it's highly effective with up to 90% protection

    I've started a thread to discuss the rollout of vaccines, apparently the NHS are hoping to vaccinate a million people a week.}} https://www.railforums.co.uk/threads/vaccine-progress-approval-and-deployment.211585/#post-4878059

    Oxford Vaccine phase three trial suggests it's highly effective with up to 90% protection

    Weren't the testing regimes different, Pfizer et al only tested those with symptoms, whereas AZ tested everyone regulalry.

    Life after the end of "lockdown" 2.0

    Indeed, It feels like there is no accounting for the measurement effects of mass testing in a specific area. It's almost like there's nobody in Sage with a background in statistics.

    Life after the end of "lockdown" 2.0

    Indeed, our cases are lower than when we went in, below the national average in fact; yet we're still in Tier 3. There's no logic to it, so sense at all, only a desire to be seen as being "tough on the virus"; yet completely ignoring the human suffering this causes.

    Nottinghams been dropping fairly heavily since before any restrictions were brought in.

    Our total reliance on a vaccine and putting life on hold until it's rolled out

    I agree with most of the logic here, however the argument that we should fundementall change the structure of our society to protect against one in a hundred year events seems flawed. UNLESS doing so also improves happiness and standards of living.

    The Bridge being out has caused lots of additonal traffic issues. With how long it's taking, I'm glad i'm not commuting over it every day! 1606388101 Surely as soon as the vulnerable are vaccinated in suficient numbers, we can leave this authoritarian dystopia...

    Life after the end of "lockdown" 2.0

    Mr Johnson also promised "Significant Normality by November", we can't stand by and wait for promises that may or may not manifest, when the damage and suffering they cause is so real.

    Christmas Bubble discussion: Who will be part of yours?

    This is the most depressing thing I've ever read, surely we must come to our senses and see reality now.

    Life after the end of "lockdown" 2.0

    It's becoming increasingly clear that there won't be any form of life after Covid, only yet more psychological torment. The worst thing is those who gleefully scream to extend our suffering in order to 'save lives'.

    Oxford Vaccine phase three trial suggests it's highly effective with up to 90% protection

    Yes, phase 2 trials included examining the antibody responses across a large age range, and found that they were present in older people also.

    Oxford Vaccine phase three trial suggests it's highly effective with up to 90% protection

    Since we have a few vaccines now, I've created a thread to discuss their deployment and approval. https://www.railforums.co.uk/threads/vaccine-progress-approval-and-deployment.211585/

    That would certainly be better, however still would pose challenges.

    Oxford Vaccine phase three trial suggests it's highly effective with up to 90% protection

    Very much cheaper on the logistics front; Now a walk-in chiller-trailer and a marquee is a potential vaccination centre. Whereas for Pfizers -80, you'd most likely need cryogenic storage, as even Dry Ice wouldn't be cold enough.
