How are people still not wearing masks on public transport???
I heard that the other day too, a shocking stat really. That kind of information needs ramming down people’s throat until everyone takes it seriously.
“Just nipping out for a loaf of bread and a covid jab...”
Asda is set to become the first supermarket in the country to administer the Covid vaccine.
NHS England has chosen the chain to set up a vaccination centre from an in-store pharmacy in its Birmingham branch.
It has been given the green light to administer the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.
According to the supermarket giant, it will be transforming its George section at the store into its new vaccination centre.
It will be open from 8am to 8pm, seven days a week, and will have the ability to offer 250 jabs each day.
Asda Named First Supermarket To Offer Covid Vaccine
Why should they? The mild inconvenience would ruin their selfish lives.
Is the spread of the virus going down to 30-50%?

Would anyone else accept an unsociable hour for their vaccine?
once off? sure no problem. Would probably prefer it as its going to be a queuing up situation that I'd rather go when its quieter.
not that 2022 is all that close anyway.
This new nebulizer thing stops 80% of people getting seriously ill in hospital
A large-scale trial of a new treatment it is hoped will help stop Covid-19 patients from developing severe illness has begun in the UK.
The first patient received the treatment at Hull Royal Infirmary on Tuesday afternoon.
It involves inhaling a protein called interferon beta which the body produces when it gets a viral infection.
The hope is it will stimulate the immune system, priming cells to be ready to fight off viruses.
Early findings suggested the treatment cut the odds of a Covid-19 patient in hospital developing severe disease - such as requiring ventilation - by almost 80%.
It was developed at Southampton University Hospital and is being produced by the Southampton-based biotech company, Synairgen.
A course of treatment with the new drug could cost around £2,000, which is not that expensive for a hospital treatment.
"To be viable it will have to represent good value for money," Synairgen's chief executive Richard Marsden said.
Covid: Large trial of new treatment begins in UK
That's news to me, very positive news!
Our local Costa is closing temporarily on Friday . Rumour has it John Lewis are suspending their click and collect service
Its a shame that its so out of control that you are already in difficulty before being advised to go to hospital.
If doctors could prescribe this for home use on diagnosis it'd be brilliant.
It's funny the contrast I see I people I work for at the moment. One guy, I'm connecting heaters in his shed/office while he's indoors and he insists I wear a mask which I'm happy to do. Then the builder a few days later is ripping out a kitchen with his labourer and us wiring around them. Customer didn't bat an eye lol. Pretty sure we were breaking the rules somehow. I know we've all gotta get on and work and get things done, just cant believe the difference in some people.
It is still early days in the trial, but if the treatment can produce anything like the 80% rate quoted, it will be a game changer.
New strain now from Brazil ffs.
Have we had any cases of people refusing the jab so far? That's a question i'd be interested to be put to Chris Witty.
