    November 29th to December 1st have been declared, by Presidential decree, National Vaccination Days. Depending on the translation they are Solidarity or Community Spirit days.

    Anyone who has not been vaccinated is strongly encouraged to do so. My city, and I am sure the others, have been advertising for volunteers to staff the vaccination centres (in admin not medical roles).

    Target is 15 million jabs in the three days

    And the lack of vaccine access equality comes back and bites the rich countries on the arse.

    Well that's some terrible news. I remember reading some time ago that there was a lot of concern that something like this would come out of Southern Africa due to the huge amount of HIV... Young people were getting covid with minor/
    limited symptoms, and then it was hanging around and mutating for months and months in their bodies given their very weak immune systems etc. Not sure if vaccines are of any help for people with HIV but I presume not if there's no real immune system to train?

    Apparently our “selfish mask” guy had this variant.

    Drawbridge coming up?

    What proportion of mutations do you think would have been prevented if the global vaccine supply had been distributed globally in exactly the order of relative risk from infection (obviously impossible) regardless of geography?

    I'd wager the answer would be very low to close to zero.

    I bow to your greater knowledge. I disagree. But then the pandemic is over, cases globally are falling and the experts who said 30,000 or more might die in the UK by June 2022 if all restrictions were lifted were incredibly stupid and ignorant compared to your expertise in the field.

    Ok, go ahead and put a quantitive value on the proportion you think would be prevented.

    5 shillings and six pence. Blah blah blah.

    Neither of us know because we are both as ignorant as shit. The difference is I know I am ignorant, you live in a delusional world where you are the world expert on covid based on some YouTube videos and this overwhelming need to defend yourself because you were wrong 18 months ago and can't let that go.

    Pandemic over
    Global cases falling
    Deaths in UK negligible (a mistake you made last year and unbelievably, or not, repeated this year).
