It's disconcerting. The Indian variant has pushed the odds against us slightly, but with vaccination we nudge it back in our favour by reducing the numbers susceptible, while huge swathes of the economy remains open.

So what.

Quote:
Public Health Wales (PHW) confirmed two members of the same household had developed the illness - which sees people suffer aches, a fever and a rash which scabs over - after one of them caught it while abroad.

Monkeypox does not spread easily between people and the risk to the general public is low.

Back in December 2019 a person in England was diagnosed with monkeypox and was treated at the specialist high consequence infectious disease centre at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust in London.

A year before this, in September 2018, three cases of monkeypox were reported in the UK.

Re: Coronavirus

If the World Health Organisation say there's no evidence of human to human transmission it's time to shut the borders.

Re: Coronavirus

It doesn't affect where I live but, it's looking like the government will put back the easing of restrictions due on 21st June in England, they'll be ramping up the number of people needing a second dose to give them more protection, how long they'll delay the easing is anyone's guess.
This could well have been avoided by not giving people from India five days to get back to the UK, a massive cock-up imo.

The prediction seems to be a month because businesses would rather work for with more certainty than having a rolling deadline.

I hope they ramp up second vaccines. My second isn't until August!

You'll need a third by then followed by a forth........

Re: Coronavirus

It's all become rather repetitively boring, same shit different month.

I'm sure the health experts have already decided on where the new July variant will originate, and are now busy working on the August one . . . which will be 72.6% more transmissible and probably found to be spread by hamsters and geese.

It's all getting a bit much now you risk your life getting vaccinated and your reward is more lockdown until we have inoculated every one, next it will be cats and dogs, rabbits gerbils, tortoises, goldfish ..........

Re: Coronavirus

Pandemics are boring (except for those who die from them, and their families, and those who have Long Covid, and the NHS staff who are burnt out from long hours over the last 18 months, etc., etc.).

The COVID19 virus (and it's variants) would like to profusely apologise for any inconvenience suffered...
