26 August 2021 Adrian Leopard 292 Uncategorized Are we being lulled into a false sense of security by the government attitude to whether we get infected by covid? Previous Article Vaccines – just how good are they really? We are getting mixed messages now Next Article 30 times as many covid cases as this time last year The message is changing, subtly but leaving no doubt as to its meaning As cases continue to rise, new cases over the past seven days amounting to 238505 in the UK and deaths to 770, professors and others are saying that we are expected to catch covid a number of times in our lives and that on each occasion the effects of the disease should be milder. Is this what people want to hear? Do they want to hear that now an equilibrium may have been reached it doesn’t matter whether they get ill or not? Does it no longer matter that people are continuing to die from the disease? Do we have to just grin and bear it? If that is the case, what was all the fuss about vaccinating the more vulnerable first? What of the people who are dying now? Is it in fact necessary that the rate of new cases exceed 33000 a day? Does it no longer matter that 4700 cases have been linked to a festival in Newquay? And which will be the next festival which will spawn a mass of new cases? Is vaccination just a “quick fix” to reduce the incidence of disease and death with no real concern about trying to stop the transmission of the disease, all of course in the name of keeping the economy going? Do you in fact care any more? Is now the time to throw in the towel? Long covid – if you get it just tough? Well there will always be plenty of room in the graveyards.
