Thread: Coronavirus update

    Re: Coronavirus update

    The new daily figure shows that a total of 86,000 have been vaccinated in Wales now and it seems that the effects of locking down just before Christmas are now being seen because there is a definite downward trend in new cases in south Wales - the concern I'd say is that, apart from it looking likely that it's arrived in North Wales around the Wrexham area, is Wales still not seeing much of the new variant and, if not, how badly will it hit us (Liverpool's cases have quadrupled in a week apparently)?

    Just 1,332 new cases in Wales today from a smaller than usual number of tests which may or may not indicate demand for them is dropping. Vaccinations are about 5,000 up on yesterday and there were sixteen deaths.

    Its still very much here and hospitals are at their peak, but definitely slowing and on the decline in South Wales, a long way to go but reasons to be positive. In and around Christmas was chaos. From a personal point of view aunties, uncles, neighbours and a whole host of people close to home were getting it (All recovered thankfully) but now starting to hear less and less of people testing positive.
    Hopefully at this rate the kids will be back in school after half term which has been mooted and then cautiously and slowly, all other sectors can start opening up through March leading up to Easter.
    Still, as i say, long way to go but does seem moving in the right direction.

    I really don't get this testing stratergy.

    In Wales over the last week the nuber of peole going to tst centres for tests had dropped off quite dramatically while you think that as there is so much of it about they should be packed, yet in England, there is a new centre just opened north of Bristol and there is a que out of there all the way down the road from 8 AM every day. There doesn't seem to be any reason for the dsifference.
    That said, the wlk in centre staff in Merthyr, who were doing about 400 tests a bay were visited by the HSE last week and have been told that now they are only allowed to do 140 a day. It's madness.
    I can't ait for when we can start closing some of these permanently.

    Pubs and stuff were open in Bristol until the lockdown weren’t they? Things are definitely getting more manageable here

    In South Wales looks that way. Obviously still way too high but hopefully by Spring much better.

    Yeah it was hospitality early December then the in effect lockdown with shops later. The closing of hospitality earlier with this new variant may be why we are lower than England.

    Re: Coronavirus update

    New cases up a couple of hundred from yesterday, but there were more tests - unfortunately, nearly four times as many deaths.

    Its shocking. With the current numbers its going to be many weeks before we see the death toll start to steadily decrease.

    The UK will be up to around 110k+ deaths by the middle of next month, once the effects of Christmas mixing and England's later lockdown get through the system.

    When you think back to the reaction to that model last spring which predicted 66,000 deaths in the UK, that's a shocking number and yet people seem to be resigned to it now. Over 1,500 died on Wednesday and yet we have a lockdown that is less strict than the one for he first wave. There can be no doubt that, even if the vaccine programme goes as well as hoped (and, there appears to be good news on that front in the link below), the official UK response to the pandemic has been found seriously wanting.

    I'm pretty down about the whole thing and agree that we seem resigned to these shocking numbers yet they are still only part of the story.

    Aren't those deaths mostly from actions before 2021 though? Cases coming down suggests current lockdown is working reasonably well but Boris wanting to protect Christmas shopping and waiting for the virus to spread out of London instead of locking down the whole of England was the wrong approach to take for virus control.

    Additionally, we should recognise that health services are much better at keeping people alive now with advances in treatment options and knowledge. So many people dying despite this should highlight how bad things are, as should Derby and Burton hospital staff (and presumably others) being given PTSD treatment support.

    We’re going to be reaching 100,000 dead soon and still “libertarians” talk as if it’s a lot of fuss about nothing:-
