    That's true. One of nature's ironic yin & yangs.

It's only doing that over a week now and with far more testing which suggests things are nowhere near as bad as they were earlier in the year.

    As for other preventable deaths, something KK has questioned throughout this, I wonder if we will see a public inquest and compensation cases. Priority cancer patients have died so I can imagine the neglect of the elderly. We've now been contacted for my mum's first assessment with the relevant team and I was very surprised given the increases will be a new shield to services who want to keep backlogs down with some number messaging...or preventing you even getting counted.
    Does that contact mean an actual time and date for the assessment or is it and introductory letter from the team explaining their role and what happens at the assessment? I really hope it's the former, Terry..

    Regarding this latest alleged panic buying saga, it's a sorry sign that many of the Covidiots have failed to learn from the original events earlier in the year, that there were no actual shortages of toilet rolls and the like, and the original nationwide lockdown didn't restrict us from essential shopping.

    I'm still convinced there are other agendas at play here, as if many simply revel in all the drama and media hype, which no doubt fans the panic buying flames.

    It does seem that many people are compelled to make a big drama out of nearly everything nowadays, with pack mentality ensuing. This year not only have we had this blasted pandemic, but we have had the mass protests on behalf of BLM and XR, whose basic principles I agree with, but not the OTT dramas and mob mentality involved.

    I fear that we now live in a state of media anarchy (both social and conventional) and the 'proper' authorities have lost control.

    In a nutshell, the media have now essentially become the govt!

    I feel quite pleasantly surprised at today's case count, which is 6,042, whereas yesterday it was 6,874.

    Many of us were heavily expecting today's case count to be over 7k, though might still happen at some point over the coming days. Cases have continued their upward trend in Wales, Scotland and NI, but down in England (by 1,084).

    Today's UK-wide deaths remain fairly stable (34), yesterday 35, and Thursday 40.

    My city dropped off the watchlist yesterday which is good news. The numbers still aren't great but time will tell.

    It's an appointment for them to come here so it should be the initial assessment. We had a letter months ago but it was just the Covid foboff. Nothing about what they do as it was a phone call booking but maybe we will get a confirmation letter. Thanks for caring

    Piers Corbyn, David Icke and assorted loons at it again...

    https://www.standard.co.uk/news/lond...edium=referral

    The headline should probably be "Met grow a pair...finally."

    Even at a time of national crisis where these groups are likely unconsciously spreading a virus we still have to let them have their liberty. I think Pamplemousse was right about how idiots just evolve.

    If we are having lockdowns why isn't woke central halting mass demos? Rule of 6 my arse. How do you think they all travel there & back?

    You all are following in our footsteps... Remember when that happened here?

    I really hope it's not just an introductory meeting to talk about what will happen at the initial assessment but that's just me being cynical..At least they are actually coming in person and having some "action" instead of the promise of action in the future is always a huge step in the right direction!

    Well that's good Terry.

    Even my dad now seems to believe that there are elements of hype over the current CV situation, as he believes the govt have shares in many of the private firms doing the testing and other measures, and they must have some kind of money-making agendas, whilst at the same time him partly agreeing with what I told him about Dr JC's recent opinions concerning the authorities not making songs and dancing over other illnesses/issues that are far more frequent and deadlier than Covid 19, both now and before this year.

    I know I'll probably get shot down in flames and be accused of being a Covid denier/Covidiot over what I just said above, but do I try to be as impartial, 'on the fence' and as reasonable as possible.
