My 2nd was a few weeks early, and my eldest (25) had his first this week. New cases increasing a little, but deaths and hospitalisations seem on a downward trend still, which is what really matters as far as the NHS coping. I'm cautiously optimistic.

Lawks - youngest booked in for first jab on Thursday - she's not yet 21!

Anyone else see the antivaxx documentary on C4 recently? I wonder how long it'll be before Andrew Wakefield has killed off his first million...

I'm hoping the full reopening is delayed past the 21st - new cases on the rise, and admissions have risen a little. I understand that the admissions are younger than they used to be, briefer and less likely to need major intervention, but even so - why take the risk?
 
Yes. Although the proportion of hospital admissions and deaths are low compared to number of positive cases. The number of admissions are going up. At this rate, it is likely NHS will become overwhelmed in the end of July or beginning of August.

I don't think the general public realise how easy this will happen. It just takes one member of the NHS staff to test positive and the rest of the staff who have worked with this person have to be sent home and tested. It's very easy for whole wards to be overwhelmed.

I genuinely hope that I am wrong on this, but the stats are really not encouraging in terms of admissions. Relaxing all the rules looks like another mistake to me - trusting people to be responsible after 18 months of crap is like asking George Best to stick to mineral water...

In England, from September a Covid passport may be necessary before nightclub entry.
Until then, as the virus picks up speed, everybody's welcome.
"I took the risk and I loved it" said one non-vaccinated clubgoer.
No wonder Americans have been advised against travelling here.
