The Corona Diaries – Day 455

A day of warmth, cloud and sunshine!! Hot when the sun is out.

I’ve been driving around a lot today!! It’s proved hard to get my required steps in!!

We’re off to visit a good old friend tonight!! (And watch the footie!!)

Meanwhile, out in Coronaland our incompetent twat of a PM is still blundering around with his sleazy bunch of lying, cheating cabinet members. I’m about to explode. If I overhear another twerp telling me that nobody could have done a better job I think I will hit someone. Most of the world has done a better job!! Only ignorant populist fascists like Bolsonaro and Trump have done as badly!!

Just ask Jacinda!! She’ll tell you how it should have been handled – just 26 dead – total!! Not 128,000!!

Look at the mess with PPE, Care Homes, late lockdowns, complacency, failed apps, sleazy deals, lack of airport border controls.

It’s lamentable!!!! LAMENTABLE!!! LAAAAAMMMMMEEEENNNNTTTTTAAAAABBBBBLLLLEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Incompetence, useless, inept!!! Sleazy. Corrupt. Self-serving!!

What is up with the bloody public?????? Lucking out with the NHS doing the vaccine does not excuse all the other blunders and lies!!!

As the Brexit lies come home to roost and Project Fear becomes project Reality!! Surely people can see through this fake jolly persona to the lazy, lying bastard behind the faƧade?? Surely??

It seems that the country is now (due to mass vaccination coupled with those that have already had the virus) approaching 80% immunity!! That is 80% with the antibodies. That must surely be close to herd immunity!!

The cases are still going up though – close to 12,000 a day, but the good news is that hospital cases and deaths are not rising anywhere near as fast. The vaccine is working. The NHS is safe. We can start thinking of coming out of lockdown!!

One nagging worry is that Israel is seeing a rise in cases in people who have vaccinated!! They seem connected with schools and they are talking about vaccinating all the kids!!

It looks like they are working on a booster for the Autumn – probably aimed at the older, more vulnerable – and are looking to roll it out with the flu jab to the elderly!! Sounds good to me. Anything that gives better protection against the variants is good!! I’ll be first in line!!

Stay safe!!
