Yesterday, my dad had a cardiac arrest.

They managed to resuscitate him but his heart is still very erratic. They dispersed the blood clot on his lung. He is critical but relatively stable.

Positive thoughts for you mate, look after yourself and am hoping all turns out well

Hancock says there's another mutation of the virus in the Uk that has been traced to South Africa. Even more contagious than the previous new mutation. 

This sounds like 9/11 times 1000.

Me and the wife have it. Thankfully (in a weird way) the kids are with the in laws in Ireland.

 

I got a negative lateral flow test and it came back negative. Got a private test two hours later and got positive. 

 

Either the lateral flow tests are shit, or people (like me) aren't doing them properly. 

 

Wife's a teacher and so many parents were sending the kids in with symptoms or they were waiting on test results.

744 coronavirus related deaths in the past 24 hours. 

 

Amazing that there's still proper bellwhiffs downplaying this. 

Can't believe that's there is not more outrage at these numbers. We'll be over 1k soon.

 

Don't forget these numbers are only people tested in the last 28 days. Imagine how many more are not being counted and haven't for months. We're probably on 100k by now.

 

Conveniently created metric by the cunts to save some face. I can't believe that no one has challenged this metric, as with the daily number of people being tested that haven't been available for months. All opposition parties can go fuck themselves too for being useless cunts for allowing this shitshow to just carry on and on and on...

 

Maybe Kier Cuntface can call another press conference and tell us how great he is, the self obsessed wanker.

Some science bloke on Sky News made a good point then. The government are making the same mistakes again but in relation to these new variants. They're being reactive in imposing harsher restrictions on areas where the new variants appear to have caused a surge in infections, but he argued that it'd be better if the government took the initiative and also brought in harsher restrictions in areas where the new variants haven't took hold yet, as it's highly likely that these new variants will be present in these areas and it's better to act now to prevent their spread, rather than acting after the variant has spread more. He added that the current approach seems to be the government again not wanting to make the right decisions when they're also likely to be unpopular decisions.

This is exactly right. The government has been reactive all the way through so has been permanently 1 step behind. Its inevitable that more areas will need to go in tier 4 shortly so why not do it early and try to get 1 step ahead? Clueless the lot of them.

His name is Kit Yates and he's a Mathematical Biologist and part of the Independent SAGE group. His interview on Sky was along the same lines as this article he wrote.

Without sounding like a twat, but given Africa is more prone to untreated disease, I am concerned about this new, new strain.

Exactly,  they know its going to flare up everywhere yet again reactive not proactive.

‘UK and EU 'could announce Brexit deal within HOURS': Boris Johnson is on the brink of striking historic trade agreement with Brussels after last-minute haggling over fishing rights’

 

Yup, failure and concession on every front projected as some some of sort victory?

 

Pyrrhic, perhaps.

The number of excess deaths - those above expected levels - since the start of the pandemic has passed 81,000.
 

Data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) shows the UK saw nearly 14,000 deaths in the week of 11 December.


This was 13% above the expected levels for this time of year, down from 15% the week before.


Of these deaths, 3,062 involved Covid-19, also slightly lower than the preceding week.


Excess deaths are the difference between the total number of deaths registered (the height of the shaded area in the chart below) and the average over the previous five years for the same weeks (shown by the dashed line).

The UK variant was discovered during an investigation into why coronavirus cases in Kent continued to rise during the November lockdown. Public Health England found a cluster of cases caused by a variant with a high number of mutations. When they looked back at the genetic sequences of viruses collected in the months before, they found that it first cropped up in Kent on 20 September, with another case in Greater London the next day. New variant infections have surged since then and spread across the country.

 

In the UK, the new variant is growing fast and displacing others. At the Milton Keynes Lighthouse lab the new variant accounts for about three quarters of all positive tests.

 

The early signs are that the disease caused by the new variants is no worse, but more data is needed to be sure. On 18 December, the government’s New and Emerging Respiratory Virus Threats Advisory Group (Nervtag) reported four deaths in about 1,000 cases of the new UK variant coronavirus.
