Someone from NHS said the other week that essentially there has been no flu season this winter because the measures taken to reduce coronavirus transmission have effectively stopped all flu transmission.
Or Flu is being diagnosed as Covid . . . .

I'm waiting until after Winter/Flu season has passed and then will review the statistics for Flu cases & deaths for 2020/2021 vs the prev 5 years. It will give a good indication of what has been potentially mis-represented.
Currently deaths of Covid are not clearly being distinguished where it is;
Due to Covid
Or simply they tested positive for it within X days of passing

I've heard similar said about norovirus too. I think we had all forgotten about how effective being clean is at keeping diseases at bay.

We get to meet up with friends today as the local lockdown is lifted. Bars, restaurants and sports facilities open - max 4 people together. Municipal boundaries still closed for travelling but that will be reviewed on Thursday after yesterday's figures dropped to the required number to open up the towns within the region for travel. Still no travel beyond that to other regions.

With 30 years experience of working with and for the NHS, before retiring, I could give some harrowing facts about Covid and its impact but this is the happy, smiley thread.

To conclude, today we get to meet up with friends.

The vaccine takes about 2 weeks to take effect (that is what they told me when I had my jab) so some people might catch Covid after they have been vaccinated.
What do some people need to be convinced of the seriousness of this virus ?! Everybody should have the vaccine (unless there is some medical reason for not having it ) as well as observing the hands, space, face precautions.
How else is this bloody thing going to be brought under some control and save us from going in and out of lockdowns. (as well as saving lives of course )
ps All in my opinion of course.

Had my jab a couple of weeks back and last night had a call from Bill Gates telling me he knows where I am and that I'm not allowed to go to bingo and I must go home and buy something from the Microsoft Store immediately as penance.

I was a bit concerned over our neighbour when he got the Oxford/AZ jab. Next day he was sitting on top of their car, eating bananas with the skin on and throwing handfuls of sh it at passers by. Not sure using a chimp virus was such a good idea.

Seriously though, in the Scottish study released a few days ago AZ vaccine was 94% effective in preventing serious illness, Pfizer 85%.
