I know someone who won’t take the vaccine. He says it’s because the vaccine is unproven, we won’t know if it causes any long term effects for 20 years. He’s an idiot.

I’d take the vaccine now if I could.

In related news, there’s going to be a trial of the BCG vaccine, usually against TB, to see if it works against COVID. If so that gives the scientists more time to check the actual vaccine is safe.

That can’t be the case. That’s fecking depressing if even remotely true. I can’t imagine past Christmas people putting up with anymore funny business from the politicians and the police can’t fine millions of people.

I got my random test sitting here which I’ll do on Sunday. Things in Norwich are on the rise but I’m pretty sure the rise is due to clusters of cases at the university and before that a meat packing factory.

After all of this, working in an open shop with 3-500 other people I still only know one person who’s had it and that was in March and he didn’t pass it on to anyone else.

Imagine being unemployed on top of having to dodgy a bloody virus.

Depressing sure, but realistic. I think so.

I am in a low risk area and know of 3 contractions and 1 death (friend of a friend) personally.

I suspect many people know more people than they realise who have been directly effected by this thing, not like workplaces or individuals want to spread the news after all.

That’s REALLY annoyed me at work.
A couple of people will go off sick for some COVID reason or another and it’s all whispers about who it is and no one is allowed to know.
When I get it, if I get it, I’ll make sure everyone knows myself so they can perhaps not go round a mates that day or perhaps leave it till next month to go visit granny etc etc

My local M&S was in the news because somebody on staff got it and management actively withheld who got it and what department they were in. They told staff not to isolate and just “get on with it”.

Fuck. That. That should not be allowed.
