    We can only compare to other countries if it is in regard to something positive, like vaccinations.

    This is my biggest fear, this lockdown is already a pale imitation of the March 2020 lockdown and adherence such as it is will diminish. The government eased lockdown too soon last time but it could be catastrophic if they'd did the same this time. I dont think Johnson will be able to help himself though. This feels like a really dangerous moment to me where we really need to suppress this thing so the Vaccinations can turn the tide. At the moment it feels just as likely one of these mutations is going to overcome the vaccine.

    Absolutely..........As I’ve said before..I was totally against the original lockdown/sas I couldn’t see the end and the government were just ‘kicking the van down the road’ and hoping for the best. It just seemed to do no good without a long term aim and also kill the economy.
    However now the situation has changed, the vaccine is being rolled out and the end, in my opinion, is firmly in sight. Staying at home for a couple of months longer could make the difference and if the government open things up too early, it could be a monumental disaster.

    Agree, I think the government missed the boat a while back.

    Lockdown up here has now been extended - no surprises there. They're mentioning schools phasing returns in mid-Feb, but don't see this going ahead (Sturgeon seemed doubtful anyway).

    Some of the Western Isles now into full lockdown too as there's been an outbreak on Barra.

    On a good note, despite initial difficulties with the vaccine roll-out, all over-50s should have had vaccine by "early May"

    **** knows - there's been 39 cases in Barra, and over 100 people in isolation in the last week, that's well over 10% of the population! No cases prior to this either. 4 cases on Benbecula too, which has an even smaller population

    What might be of concern is that the numbers of vaccinations seems to be dropping.......204,000 yesterday compared or over 300,000 a few days before (if I’m reading the figures correctly)
    Does anyone understand why this might be ?

    I’m guessing that the places that have been really good at injecting people have been told to slow down/starved of vaccine until less efficient places catch up. Otherwise they would get onto second shots/ start vaccinating 31 year olds before some places have finished on the walking dead old codgers.

    Pfizer have changed their manufacturing process which will mean less supply from them for a few weeks but ultimately will up their capacity. Odd that the AZ vaccine was only submitted to the European Medicines Agency for review a week ago (could be approved by 29 January) and doesn’t even seem to be under review by the FDA in the US.

    You must be bored to be back on here.

    Ahh ok, makes sense G. I must admit I’m finding the government tracking website enthralling and constantly checking for any updates....that as well as checking my HR (which was coming up but went down to 42 at one point today) and coming back on here.

    Yep you got it my old mate.......I’m very bored.

    Just me guessing mate. They need to hit about 280k a day to do 2 million a week, which is where they need to be now to hit the 15 million by the middle of next month. I think they will be very close.

    But a bit of a Barney would be fun, even if I can only see one side of it.

    On the local news just said they expect to see the peak of people in hospital on 27 January. The next week is going to be very rough for our friends in the hospitals. Already kids needing serious care in Leicester being moved to Birmingham because paediatric ITU beds redesignated for covid patients.

    In a leap of faith we have just booked a week in a holiday cottage in Monmouthshire in June.
