A = f; ∴ B 4 Δ? What does Elon Musk and Grimes' kid have to do with the story?

Amazingly I agree with the government.  People have had their chance to get vaccinated and I there isn't really much point even trying to slow down the spread now as the NHS can currently cope.

Obviously if that changes then we need to change direction, but until it does then why try to protect people who don't want to be protected?

Interesting footnote, since it looks like covid reinfection can occur in as little as 16 months, and that fatality rates are somewhere around 1%, that means in the next decade we should see a substantial number of anti vaxxers dying and the demographic should shift more towards common sense.

Patience.

Here downunder 10% of the ICU covid people were fully vaccinated but the number of new cases state wide are running around 2000 a day. We hit 70% above 16 vaccinated today and 89% have one dose.  The problem is 10% of the ICU cases are fully vaccinated and the treatment now is so good that ICU means very nasty problems.   The restrictions were opened up about 13 minutes ago after months so I'm guessing an increase in about a week.

Health Minister Edward Argar said the NHS is not under "unsustainable pressure" to justify restrictions.
He told BBC Breakfast there were about 95,000 beds in NHS hospitals, with 7,000 occupied by Covid patients and 6,000 currently empty.

"We know how those numbers can rise swiftly, which is why we're looking at that day by day, hour by hour. But at the moment we do have the ability to manage," he said.


You kind of want restrictions in place so the numbers don't rise swiftly. That way it's never a question if the system can manage. Why continually take yourselves to the brink?

to be fair, we never really had a 'Plan A'.
'Plan 9 From Outer Space' would be a better option though.

Has anyone every just skipped Plan A, went with Plan B and was successful?

Plan A was to send wave after wave of men at the killbots
Plan B was to upload a nekkid picture of Daisy Mae 128k with a virus attached and watch the killbots shutdown remotely.

There is a reason there were 270,000 Christian Scientists in 1936, 100,000 in 1990 and under 50,000 by 2009.

Xai: as the NHS can currently cope.


I'm not sure what time is like in the universe that you come from, but in this universe with it's annoyingly linear time, you need to take preventative action beforea situation gets really bad, not after it.

The NHS always sees a surge in demand during winter, and so if they are only able to just about cope now, then action needs to be taken before that surge occurs.

/And arguable the NHS is not coping.....it's really struggling to provide non-emergency healthcare for chronic health problems, including things like screening for cancer......which is going to cause a pretty large increase in the number of people dying from cancer that wouldn't have, if they'd been able to get treated earlier.

The pagan gods would refuse to accept bojo as a sacrifice, they do have some standards after all.

sorta sucks for the people who can't be vaccinated for various reasons that there's a bunch of people who can that simply decided not to.

Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi singled out the U.K.'s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic as a great example -- of what not to do.

"The U.K., one of the countries that conducted its vaccination campaign with great speed, after abandoning all caution, today has around 50,000 daily new cases and 200 dead yesterday," Draghi said Wednesday, addressing Italy's lower house of Parliament. "The exit will need to be gradual," said Draghi, who is guiding his country through a reopening in stages.

The U.K.'s new daily Covid-19 cases have persisted above 30,000 since early September, and on Wednesday it recorded 179 deaths within 28 days of a positive test.
By contrast, Italy reported 33 deaths and 3,702 new cases Wednesday. Its population of about 60 million compares with about 67 million in the U.K.

Italy is getting back to normal with near complete compliance with mask-wearing and green passes (vaccine passports) for entry to restaurants, museums etc.

Because of the cost of treating them.  The cost of the vaccine is minscule compared to even one day in the ICU.  Yes I realize GB has "free" health care, but the costs are paid out of someones pocket.  I'll give you a hint it is the tax payer.
