Our builders are off with covid. One of their wives got it, yet about 5 of them have multiple neg tests. My mrs had it and I had 2 neg test. How can one of the most contagious diseases not in some instances not be so.

Because most people won’t even get it.

I still can’t get over the stat that up to this day, only 5% of the UK has tested positive for this ‘dangerous’ disease. That’s all. Five percent.

Total positive cases: 3.5m
Population: 68m

The mind boggles.

Edit: also don’t trust the test. It is highly inaccurate. The whole thing is diabolical.

The proposed change is thought necessary because government polling found only 17% of people with symptoms are coming forward to get a test, owing to fears that a positive result could stop people from working.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/jan/21/ministers-ponder-paying-500-to-all-with-covid-in-england

during the most recent week (27 December 2020 to 2 January 2021), we estimate 1,122,000 people (95% credible interval: 1,070,600 to 1,175,700) within the community population in England had the coronavirus (COVID-19), equating to around 1 in 50 people (95% credible interval: 1 in 50 to 1 in 45)

There are considerably more people that have had covid that won't be included within the confirmed cases total, there's also estimates that say approx 100k were getting it a day back during the peak of the first wave with most not being tested because testing was fairly limited back then.

Looks like losing a 'LOT of money on Trump to win and to win BIG' hasn't triggered a reflection on any other conspiratorial beliefs Laughing out loud

Most voted for president in history just about musters 10k views of his live inauguration on youtube when Trump's 'farewell' speech had millions. Yes, he really lost that election didn't he? Laughing out loud

Meanwhile, had your first anal swab yet?

Getting ready to check into quarantine hotels?

Still waiting for the government to tell you when you can meet your family and friends?

Cuck.

10k views Laughing out loud You do love your alternative facts don't you?

Between YouTube and Twitch, nearly 29M hours watched were generated via the inauguration live streams with youtube taking 95% of those views. NBC News was the most watched YouTube stream with 5.6M hours. Source here. Unless you argue each of those 10k views totalled around 2,500 hours / approx 104 days of viewing, which makes complete sense. Cool

More views watched Biden's inauguration on live tv, around 1m more Trump's inauguration 4 years earlier. Sources here and here.

Don't worry about acknowledging or responding to this, just post a betting slip or a watch pic elsewhere and pretend it never happened. Smiling

Impossible to argue with constantly moving claims, best not to bother.

What’s peoples view on the EU trying to block supply of the vaccine by invoking article 16?

All the Bureaucracy and vaccine nationalism is mind boggling!

(particularly for me, thinking the UK shouldn't leave the EU when the ruling party is desperate to scrap EU labour laws, environmental commitments, and wants to sell off the NHS to America)

What you on about? Straw man tactic again Laughing out loud I’m literally interested in what people think about the case in point and stimulating some discussion. You really do get triggered easily man - chill out.

What? Sorry, I'm not being aggro at all?

Obviously what the EU were trying to pull yesterday was awful, glad they've backtracked. Not sure there's any real discussion to have though is there?

Voted remain but EU are being scumbags end of

The one thing the UK has got right is its vaccines, order early even if they don't succeed and hedge bets. EU took 3 months negotiating on a vaccine being sold at cost. Mental.

Not like the UK can give the EU any of its vaccines either without the consequence being unnecessary deaths, which is not a good look.

UK is producing max 2m doses a week, EU is 75M short. We should help the EU out once the most vulnerable have had 2 doses.
