Well, if that’s the kind of life you are happy to embrace, knock yourself out!

Yes, that’s the other thing. The Covid figures come ready-inflated. Whilst an unknown number of patients in hospital may test positive for Covid, it appears that a significant number have not died because of it.

This is where the ONS numbers are better than deaths with a positive test within 28 days. The ONS figures use cause of death as noted on the death certificate using WHO guidelines.

Here's the latest data. In the year to date, COVID was the number 1 cause of death. Table 11a is our friend here for the figures for England. Note that cancer is broken down by type but even if you add up the three cancers in the top ten (Lung at 5, colorectal at 8 and leukaemias at 10) they still don't add up to the numbers for COVID
-------------------------------------
Just to add, where each disease ranks shouldn't necessarily mean that's how much effort is put in to treating. Dementia is always way up at the top of the causes of death but that is much more regarded as 'that's just getting old' than, say, certain types of cancer

It's all the CMOs that have agreed this.

Also you're mistaking Chris Whitty who doesn't have any Pfizer shares as far as I know with Sir Patrick Vallance.

That, too.

Incidentally, you get far more protection from actually contracting the virus. So if you get it while vaccinated, that’s a good thing.

If you are not vaccinated you may not be so lucky, although most don’t realise they’ve even had it.

https://fullfact.org/health/maajid-n...cine-immunity/

Quote:
Professor Bangham said: “I think [this study is] very likely to be correct. I'd see no reason to doubt it. More importantly, it's exactly what any immunologist would expect to be true.”

Professor Paul Hunter, Professor in Medicine at The Norwich School of Medicine at the University of East Anglia, agreed. He told Full Fact: “Yes, the balance of evidence does suggest that natural infection will provide a more durable immunity especially to severe disease.

“But of course the downside of that is that during your first natural infection if unvaccinated you are just as much at risk of severe disease and death depending on your age and other risk factors at any time during the pandemic.”

Sounds like a supply issue going for a dosage interval not mandated anywhere in the world.

Here’s something else you might not like. I take it you are prepared to believe the ONS figures…

https://www.standard.co.uk/news/uk/c...d-b955024.html

People who were fully vaccinated against Covid-19 accounted for only 1% of all deaths involving coronavirus that occurred in England in the first seven months of this year, new analysis shows.

Most were infected before they had received both jabs or had tested positive for Covid-19 within 14 days of their second dose.

The figures have been published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

On the contrary I’m desperate for us to succeed because the alternative is lockdown to desperately recover the situation. As it always has been.

I’m not sure why I’d not like ONS statistics. The cut off point is interesting.

Guessing you didn’t bother to read it then.

The risk/reward analysis with regards to protection against disease and risk of myocarditis is pretty clear. The second dose affords negligible additional protection in this age group while the risk of complications rises significantly.

But by all means, rock that tinfoil hat …

Does vaccinating a youth mean that cannot transmit COVID? That is the implication of the decision with words such as “reducing transmission”?
