    Exactly. The question leaves a lot unsaid. The main issue with a vaccine is that if for 98%+ of people what they are being vaccinated against is a mild illness then you need the chance of negative side effects to be almost zero. If you cant guarantee that the only people you can vaccinate are those that would be much more likely to die from the virus. So finding a vaccine isn't a silver bullet as per the assumption of the MSM.

    The vaccine can be used to protect the at risk groups meaning we can all go about our business as usual without killing them though.


    The lockdown isn’t for the vast majority is it. It’s for the small % of people who will get sick enough to need treatment.


    As usual in the U.K. the tail is wagging the dog

    Stood in queue at morrisons just now and an older fella comes up to talk to me about what’s going on with this covid

    I told him I think it’s all a load of over blown shite etc

    He gets right morbid and says his cousin died of it last week so naturally I asked if he had any underlying health conditions

    obese, diabetes and a bad heart apparently

    covid related pneumonia is what they’ve put as cause of death he said

    The yearly deaths from Influenza peaked at a high of 28,330 in 2014/15. Public Health England does not publish a mortality rate for the flu.

    The percentage of flu cases that resulted in hospitalisation has consistently been between 1% and 2%, and the percentage of cases that resulted in death has been between 0.1% and 0.2%.

    Current understanding of Covid-19 suggests that elderly people and those with underlying illnesses have the biggest risk of developing a severe infection, while those most at-risk from influenza also include children and pregnant women.

    Approximately 36,000 people in 2020 have had Covid-19 listed on their death certificate.

    Almost 90% of all those dying being over 70 AND either diabetic or with heart disease.

    Less than 50 people aged under 40 and had no underlying health conditions have had Covid-19 listed on their death certificate.

    Early indications of mortality rate of Covid-19 is between 0.1% and 0.2%.

    18th March. Bang on.

    Whilst there are no figures showing the NHS ever had capacity issues and with the lockdown not working in a number of key areas, whilst also destroying the economy, my words above look very prescient looking back.

    Care homes have been decimated. Economy destroyed. Thousands of cancer sufferers etc couldn't get treatment and a number will have died.

    After watching the Swedish scientists who work on real data and not the ICL report (unpublished, not peer reviewed and written by a muppet), then it is great to see eminent people agree with the strategy above.

    Also the chance of a second peak coming out of lockdown is pretty high which shows how retarded going into lockdown was and elongating the whole mess.

    Back to DIY :D:D

    The wonderful festival of Eid. Eat, drink and be merry.

    Got my kids some gifts so looking forward to giving them. My mum and dad are doing a roast dinner. Getting a big Asian breakfast at the inlaws as well.

    Pretty much just going to switch off for the day and recuperate. Get prepared to switch work mode back up a notch. Been lazy as fuck the last two weeks.
