    An interesting read: "the coronavirus is here to stay" https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-021-00396-2?utm_source=twt_nnc&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=naturenews

    Analysis Coronavirus - The Impact IV “Phasing into the New Normal”

    Given there isn't much data on whether transmission is also reduced post-vaccination, there won't be normality until all at-risk groups are vaccinated.

    Analysis Coronavirus - The Impact IV “Phasing into the New Normal”

    If close contacts are testing negative then it's likely fine, the spread will stop at the first round of contact which has been mapped. Still 50-odd casual contacts to get results from. If they're negative, then Perth is in the clear, even if they become positive while quarantining.

    Interesting points, I'll have a crack! 1. Probably not, but it's an unprecedented situation so they would be learning on the spot. After 10 months you would think better systems would be in place though. Definitely time to up the training for staff. 2. Had a chat to a doctor mate about this...

    Analysis Coronavirus - The Impact IV “Phasing into the New Normal”

    It's entirely possible that if the medication drop happened not long after a meal pickup, the infected person could have coughed droplets out of the room (when they picked up their food) that were still hanging around when the security guard left the medication. If no mask was worn, it's an easy...

    Housemates tested negative didn't they say, so even if they become positive, they wouldn't have had the viral load between being exposed and quarantining to infect others. It's a good sign as well as they would have had maximal exposure and are still negative, so all potential positives will...

    Me? Yeah, more in hope than anything. I wouldn't be surprised if Boris is taken down by his own party as the lockdowns go on and the public get sick of the mismanagement. I'll quote the post for sure in 4 years if he's still there and gets booted out though :p

    Bit of a beat up in terms of the rage. Most people on the ground are wondering why for a long time borders haven't been closed, covid testing for travelling wasn't mandatory and there has been little enforcement of covid rules (I for one had neighbours that were having multiple parties during...

    News Willie Rioli - Provisionally Suspended (Days since suspension without decision : 537)

    And this is the reason why he'll likely cop a long ban. Even if he wasn't, leniency sets a precedent for people who would cheat. I hope it's not like that...

    Statement issued this morning with info: https://uk.embassy.gov.au/lhlh/20210111_update.html Although, if you're elsewhere, I'm not sure. If you're in the US, some of the airlines may have links to testing facilities. There would be countries where it would be extremely difficult though

    It adds another layer, but airlines like Emirates, and from late December Singapore were requiring it before boarding. I've got a flight on Friday from London, and it was quite straightforward to organise a PCR test here in Edinburgh at the airport, and Heathrow also have testing facilities...

    It's not much of an issue if there's pre-flight screening and then a rapid test on arrival which have now been implemented, yet these ******* campaigners go and halve the caps because they can't train their staff properly to use their PPE. 10 months to sort this sh*t out and they still have the...

    I dunno, I've been wearing a mask in the UK for 8 months and haven't been ill at all this year, where I would usually catch the odd cold. I can see the benefit of wearing it on public transport etc. where there is a risk of catching colds and flu, even if it's just in the winter, and I'll...

    Analysis Coronavirus - The Impact IV “Phasing into the New Normal”

    It's unlikely. The vaccine genetic material doesn't integrate into the genome and RNA is unstable so it sticks around only long enough to make the spike protein. It will have undergone significant tests prior to Phase 1 trials to show genetic safety to satisfy regulators. Biggest danger could...

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-54902908 This is quite huge with the Pfizer and Russian announcements. If this holds, I've said it before, but it could be the greatest collective scientific achievement ever. Having multiple mRNA vaccines approved for human use would have massive implications...
