    HIV has much the same effect, but it never really caught on. Poor advertising.

    Up 60% on the 7 day average, so lag or not it's clearly going in the wrong direction.

    Same day last week was 36k cases. Rate of increase seems to be slowing a little but they’re still going up fast. I’d expect it to slow a bit when half the country is isolating.

    Yes it clearly is. Just nice to break up the endless doom mongering every now and again before everyone tops themselves.

    I don't think we're known for being that emotionally fragile here. I mean, many of us have survived being on the forum for well in excess of a decade.

    Unrelated, I did say the list was pointless, but I didn't think it was this pointless...

    Two vaccination centres have been ransacked in France, as people protested against the introduction of tougher coronavirus rules.

    It's a common comparison amongst anti-vaxxers. It's breathtakingly ignorant and offensive.

    Funnily enough, I know two French people and both are vax apprehensive. One works in education. I was somewhat mortified.

    I suppose it makes a certain sense if you also believe that the vaccines have killed up to two million people

    The self comparison to WW2 Jews is a tad ironic given a fair number of anti-vac dickheads think it's all a grand Zionist conspiracy.

    It's also telling that, as far as I can tell, the knobheads going on about freedum have been largely silent on the changes being put into place to muzzle the press. No doubt they only think it'll effect the (excuse the wanky term) "MSM".

    Yes, had the same thought. About all of the measures under consideration that see us slip more towards an authoritarian state.

    Didn't realise it was affecting kids so much, but then given they're such a big percentage of the total cases at the moment I shouldn't be surprised.

    I guess we're "lucky" that the schools are on holiday soon (where they aren't already).

    They’re a big percentage, although that covers a massive age range and a tiny number appear to be having anything severe from it based on that.

    Wife and I have our 2nd Pfizer jab today. Hoping it is a side effect free as the first!

    Also they are mostly alt right cunts

    talking of cunts that prick from singapore has been charged with not wearing a mask to court and bail has been rejected.

    also he really wants to come back to the UK, he would love it here, his fellow smooth brains can be licking door handles and each other brains without masks

    Why do all those stringently anti-mask types have the same gormlessly-smug expression on their stupid faces?

    Im not an advocate of corporal punishment by any means but I do think it would be pretty funny if this knobhead got a few strokes.

    Someone at work's tested positive, done my lateral flow test (negative) and just done a PCR but either way I need to isolate for at least ten days.

    Week off next week completely up in the air, sigh :(

    Relatively encouraging to see the cases aren't much higher today. NI the only part of the UK that's up significantly vs last week.
