Fun seeing over 90yo housebound person w/ loads of at risk factors being invited to travel to places miles away w/ no transport available. Probably get to them in 2-3 months time, the same delay that there was for the flu vaccine last year. #Covid19UK #COVIDVaccination
NEW: Latest SAGE minutes suggest as early as the 17th December, scientists predicted we might hit record hospital admissions in January. Even as restrictions were relaxed over Christmas.
Replying to @Brexitastrophe: Boris Johnson knew that Christmas relaxation was likely to lead to a spike in COVID cases, but then went ahead and did…
@borngeek There are a zillion ways they could spin “it’s for the celebration” that could work but instead it’s going to be “sorry, our hands are tied, we *have* to give this money to some millionaires and corporations to throw us a big ol’ tone-deaf party”
#Trump incited violence for 5 yrs, encouraged attacks on Obama, HRC, women, journalists etc & nothing done. He got away w/ it, it won him the presidency. Why did politicians suddenly take it seriously? #ImpeachmentDay The ppl acting now are the ppl who got attacked this time.
Q: @Keir_Starmer @BBCNews @BBCPolitics Why are you not making clear how many ppl died/will die due to @BorisJohnson's late decisions. Closing borders late: how many new infections, how many Brazil variant, how much spread, how many deaths will closing the border later cause?
Passengers must remember to complete a Passenger Locator Form before arriving back into England – anyone WITHOUT proof of a negative test faces a £500 fine.
A small fine? Is that all - for putting a whole country at risk from new #covid19 variants? Not being put into quarantine until they return a negative test?
UPDATE: To give international arrivals time to prepare ⏱️ passengers will be required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test before departure to England from MONDAY 18 JANUARY at 4am 📅
How many ppl w/ #COVID19 will come in during the delay? How many deaths will this delay cause? How many ppl will have the new Brazil strain that may be vaccine resistant & how much will this spread during the delay?
Republican politicians fine when #Trump: locked up kids, abused ppl/journo/HRC etc,, lied, wouldn't disclose his taxes, employed his family/hotels etc, ignored covid19, encouraged Russian interference. But when scared/targeted by his supporters, suddenly, hell no! #ImpeachmentDay
So @BorisJohnson worried @ ICU's being overwhelmed. Er, no. Lockdown: no proper one, successively weaker attempts, no closing borders even w/ new Brazil maybe vaccine resistant variant, 100k dead, worse daily death rate than 1st wave, more dead in 2nd wave. #covid19uk
Don't understand why anyone thinks that getting rid of #Trump will get rid of the far right extremists in GOP. The first I saw of these ppl was the rise of the tea party bigots. GOP let them in, supported them to run, loved Palin etc. Trump just exploited what was already there.
