SINGAPORE: 182 cases. Food and beverage: take out only.
Car pooling forbidden.
Restrictions on household visits.

Singapore is "weeks away" from having two-thirds of its population fully vaccinated,

"Now is really not the time to risk it all.”
“We need to bite this bullet, dial back on social activities, and then use this time to push through the vaccination efforts.”

What does the U.K. Gov do with similar levels of vaccination but with FAR FAR FAR higher cases and transmission?

Throws the doors open to Covid.

Looks like Cummings kept the receipts
There it is in black & white

Who else was included in this text?
Who’s been shielding him ever since?

On 15-10-20 154,896 has been admitted to hospital (over 1k on that day)

By 13-7-21 480,512 had been admitted.

325k more than 15-10-20
⚰️ On 15-10-21 there had been 60,267 deaths (death certificates)

152 on that day who should be grateful they lived that long it seems.

On 2-7-21 there had been 154,099.

Nearly another 94k deaths.

And they should all be damn grateful it seems.

They could have died sooner. 🤷🏻‍♀️
🦠 On 15-10-20 there had been 726,194 cases. 14,761 on that day.

By 18-7-21 there has been 5,473,477 cases.

4,747,283 more cases

(& Most cases for 17/18 July still to be added and likely +++ thousands to 16-7-21.

Probably more to Thurs 15-7-21. Already on 58,606.

Covid: Boris Johnson resisted autumn lockdown as only over-80s dying - Dominic Cummings - BBC News

Full Interview: 7pm TUESDAY BBC2

Cummings also said the prime minister had messaged him to say: "I no longer buy all this NHS overwhelmed stuff."

Mr Johnson had wanted to let Covid "wash through the country" rather than destroy the economy, Mr Cummings said.

Who can doubt this now?

It is what he is doing.
When Vallance and Whitty urged stricter measures in mid September Mr Johnson had said: "No, no no, no, no, I'm not doing it”

And he didn’t.

Let’s always remember the corroborating evidence.

He didn’t.

The facts speak for themselves.

“We're all going to die & suffer, so why not now? And if not now, when?

Life is just delaying death! Health is just delaying illness!”

👏 @dgurdasani1

#CovidCapitulatorJohnson is flogging that it just isn’t POLITE to say

“No thanks mate. I’d really rather not”
YOU are the one who is being unreasonable when you point at leaders around the world who have done better - not marginally - but by oceans.

“Oh! Come on mate! Look! “ he says “Everyone else is willing to lay down grandma’s, grandad’s and mother’s lives to make my life easier”
“Oh, and be cautious, do things gradually (unlike us!), because if you do enjoy the 'freedoms' we've been harping on about, we'll definitely blame you if you do what we're telling you to, & then need to lockdown again!

Remember, it's all in your hands now (not ours!) Good luck!”

He described the U.K. approach as Incoherent (like Johnson and his ministers and BB CRG looms) and also said that NZ would not consider following suit.
Professor Dingbat, on the other hand, who tried to put herd immunity by infection in a sweet-as-sugar frilly dress with 'well we are all going to die at some point' (OK GRANDMA! Is now good for you?), is suggesting on @BBCNewsnight that #LongCovid is 'all in the mind'

⚠️usual weekend/ Monday processing lag.
🦠🦠🦠 39,950 cases BUT
👀 under the bonnet.

Cases by SWAB date now at 58,606 for last Thursday (See LHS) & they are still adding cases to last Tuesday(compare RHS - yesterday screenshot) & LHS (today)

Even a trickle added to Last Monday
This is a sign that there are processing capacity issues and, indeed yesterday processed tens of thousands fewer ways than the previous few days.

It must feel unrelenting pressure in the labs.

So is this a sign of trouble at mill.

Tried both Gov and NHS route. Both the same
I think it quite likely that the 60k cases I feared by “Freedom day” has already been breached. We will only know as we move through the week and look backwards.

Meanwhile cases 🦠 are getting much hotter in NI.

Doubled (swab date) in a week
Tripled by report date.

I work in an NHS Covid ward – and I feel so angry

Unvaxxed patients: some sheepish, some remain defiant as they are wheeled off to ICU and their families deny that Covid itself exists even as their relative is placed on a ventilator. theguardian.com/world/2021/jul…
It’s not just that Covid hospitalisations are increasing. It is coinciding with a resurgence of RSV (which can be serious - even deadly- in children) and flu and parainfluenza that has been suppressed due to NPIs for Covid.

They struggle to find space to keep them separate.
Consultants now off sick with stress and still more being treated for mental illness. The anxiety, and moral injury must be creating anguish.

Meanwhile, however, our junior doctors are so close to the edge that minor events regularly bring them to tears.
