Pubs closing for schools to open was something I was thinking about when Chris Whitty was talking yesterday. He seemed to make a point of it that we're at the maximum of what we can do and for things to open other things will have to close. Seems obvious that it'd be pubs but I dunno, it'd destroy the hospitality industry which I can't see them doing either.

Or just teach kids in pubs

Sickening that the soft, liberal youth are trying to put real English heroes like Tim Wetherspoons out of business. This is why we need to bring back corporal punishment and national service.

Angel of the North/Saltwell Park was canny busy today, but lots of social distancing but no masks (we didn’t wear ours either to be fair), the park areas at Saltwell Park, however were heaving, the kids weren’t happy they couldn’t go in them, but understood in the end. Lush weather as well, just how I like it, cool, drop of slight rain, but warm enough.

Infections rising slightly, but can be explained away due to targeted testing in the problem areas, 111 covid calls are now pretty much none existent, hospital admissions are down and falling, people requiring ventilators is down and falling too.

4 Hospital deaths announced today in the whole of the UK, yet somehow 70 others from the PHE random deaths generator.

The urgent report into PHE numbers being inflated is now in the third week with no signs of a conclusion yet.

the daily PHE numbers are proper random, they just don't make any sense when compared to NHS

Didn't know much about how the figures are worked out so had a look and found this:


Be interested to hear more about hospital admissions etc.

I'd assumed that the vast majority of people who die outside of hospital and have tested positive for covid were probably already receiving some sort of care, either old age or palliative. So in the main, it felt to me like that'd be the profile of person that PHE numbers cover.

The Russians reckon they have a vaccine and will be giving it to their population in October

Seems they might have rushed it a bit mind, not sure how safe it'll prove to be

They definitely haven't tested it properly, and there's a good chance they didn't even develop it themselves.

So 4 hospital deaths reported yesterday, but then another 70 were added. Where do those 70 deaths come from?

70 = PHE reporting deaths registered that weren’t in hospital and the person tested positive for covid at some point.

General opinion is that the PHE number is very odd as it doesn’t correlate at all with the NHS hospital deaths.
So if someone had COVID back in March, recovered, and then got hit by a bus this week, would that count towards the PHE number?

Excess deaths at home are still way up.  It's likely that we're underestimating COVID deaths, because many of the people dying at home never got tested for it.

This keeps coming up over and over again, but I'm yet to hear of a single example of it happening.

They probably haven’t had a chance of getting hit by a bus yet.

Making mistakes is how you learn.
Every generation must fight the same battles again and again and again. There is no final victory, and there is no final defeat, and so a little bit of history may help.
“What power have you got? Where did you get it from? In whose interests do you exercise it? To whom are you accountable? And how can we get rid of you?” If you cannot get rid of the people who govern you, you do not live in a democratic system.
That is why no one with power likes democracy and that is why every generation must struggle to win it and keep it – including you and me, here and now.

Even if it did, I've no doubt contracting Covid increases the chances of being hit by a bus. A simple, unexpected cough, whilst taking a chance crossing the road, is all it would take.
