Uk figures look really good. 🥳
Just so long as the figures don’t go up again in a couple of weeks since lockdown ended. We’ve been watching the news coverage of everybody enjoying their new freedom, and there’s very little evidence of mask wearing and social distancing, and most of those are people that will be too young to have had the vaccines yet.

Think it is accepted that figures will rise as restrictions ease ? Crucially by how much I suppose . Though , as vaccinations increase , it should be minimal

This is the Covid map where we are and its pretty much gone from a vast area now and its been like that for ages. There are still a few cases over near Catterick but its always been bad there probably due to the army maybe. If most of us are vaccinated perhaps the cases wont increase much here when we get out of lock down this time. I suppose we will find out soon enough but for the first time in a long while I feel a lot safer around my local area at least.

All well and good, apart from the fact that the Brazil variant is making some worrying inroads elsewhere round the world.

Lots more people under 40 ending up seriously ill and hospitalised and just heard today that 1,300 babies have died from this variant, so no longer a disease that affects the old more than others.

Some may argue it is because certain parts of the world haven't been vaccinated yet, but even the scientists aren't 100% sure how vaccination will pan out with new variants. Even if they can 'tweak' the vaccines relatively easily, they still have to be rolled out - again and again - and that takes time. 🤷‍♀️

Personally I don't think this virus and it's many morphing forms is done with us yet.
It's the biggest scientific (and health/social) war the world has ever had to fight, imo.

Yes it will go on and on
The heatlth issues being the main problem. But also employment and travel/employment and I am sure more eg hospital not able to deal with "routine tasks".
And as I am sure you know cancer treatment !

French President Emmanuel Macron has indicated France may lift its COVID-19 travel restrictions for non EU countries as soon as May for vaccinated travellers so indicating we'll need some form of Vac passport

Was listening to a discussion on radio and 2 clinicians [not politicians] were emphasing how international travel was the big problem . Travel agent was still arguing her case despite what was being said . I do sympathise but I find it dangerous when people are so completely delusional .
Maybe it will only be safe for us old gits to go abroad !

France is already developing a vaccine passport, or Health Pass for travel within the EU, it may be as simple as some form of addition to the “ Tous Covid “ app that we have on our phones here.
If travel to France ( and the EU) is allowed from Mid may, people will have to prove that they are immune to, or have tested negative for, Covid-19, either due to having had the illness already, through vaccination, or a very recent negative test.
The EU health pass will have all this info on it.

Theres a NHS app here that you can use to show your vaccine history but will it be accepted internationally
