Indeed, I don't know what the german is for schadenfreude but they can certainly look at our record with a certain inner smugness.

Re: Coronavirus

My Brazilian friend who lives in Thailand was screaming at her TV earlier as they are reporting from Brazil saying that babies and toddlers are dying due to the new variant.

1300 babies so far, and it's climbing fast.

She has no kids of her own, but her sisters back in Brazil all have baby grandkids.

Good to hear !

I had my first AstraZeneca jab last Tuesday at about 6pm by 9pm I was laid up in bed shivers, fever, thumping headache, exhausted. Stayed there for two days. Still have sore throat and a horrible metallic taste in my mouth & tenderness in the injection site.

Re: Coronavirus

I have had the AZ jab and suffered minor cold like symptoms, plus a sore arm.

Both my sister and Brother In-Law and big reactions, both felt like crap and struggled the following day.

I'm wondering if I had a lesser effect as I might have already had Covid-19 back in January 2nd 2020, I remember sitting on my sofa and shivering, I went to bed at 20:30 and waking up at 08:30 on the 4th, I still felt like crap for the week.

Looking back IIRC the experts believed that covid-19 was here in late 2019.

On average people who have had COVID get worse after-effects from the vaccines: https://covid.joinzoe.com/post/vacci...eady-had-covid
(The low number of people reporting any after-effects there surprises me. Nearly everyone I know has suffered something or other. I had a week-long headache)

There were certainly some strange things going around in early 2020. Mrs P and I both had very weird "colds" in February 2020. I can't remember the details now, but it was nothing like anything we'd had before.

India needs adding to the RED list ASAP.

From 04:00 BST on Friday, most people who have travelled from India in the last 10 days will be refused entry.


There are 12 flights arriving from India at Heathrow alone over the next three days (so around 4,000 passengers).

Agreed, the opposition parties have been saying this for some time now and finally BoJo has woken up. In the 21st century, I don't see why so many people need to visit the UK during a pandemic.
