Coronavirus tipping point

I wouldn't be hard on the Germans.
Their handling of covid has been very good in my opinion.

A localised spike will no doubt happen here as well at some time.

Once the pubs and clubs reopen, it could happen anywhere.

Hmmm 🤔
I didnt want to add that but so did many others. Too early to say whether it will result in a "spike" or "wave" but I imagine other countries will watch with interest.
I read that the American and Germany ones were similar.
They were hiring a large turnover of cheap migrant or poor local labour. All working without the correct distancing, hand cleaning or adequate PPE.
How true, who knows.

If the outbreaks were something to do with the colder working conditions (as is being suggested) in these plants , how come they're all meat processing business's and not salad or ice cream , vegetables , fish etc ?

As usual with covid, more questions than answers.
Why are UK based Indians more likely to die than Indian based Indians ?

Because indians in this country are immigrants andfor some, part of the poor or underprivileged. They are also more likely to be working in front line or transport jobs.
In india you would need to look at subsets instead of lumping them all together.

More likely to be the reporting Jerry.
I can’t believe that the average U.K. Indian is less well off.
On another note, 24 leading activists for BLM in South Carolina have tested positive and there has been 900 cases linked to the protest.
Almost a no shit Sherlock moment.

Percentage wise more Indians work on the front line or in transport.
One idea (which was a problem in the past) is around the lack of vitamin d. When health issues arose amongst Indians in the 70s vitamin d was added to rice etc. The uk had already added vitamin d to margarine etc to stop ringworm.

At least most blm marchers wore face masks. What will be the fallout be from the trump rally this week where people purposely refused distancing and masks.

Libdems just put forward the ‘extend the transition period’ bill forward for a 2nd reading mid July. Same few MPs with the same tactics.
Dont they realise even remainers want it done so that we never hear the word brexit again except in history lol.

Imperial College London started live covid immunity tests on humans today. Oxford started some time ago so fingers crossed 🤞
AstraZeneca are already producing the vaccine with a view to being ahead of the game if the oxford vaccine completes the clinical trial.
The Indian company that I posted about a while ago have been producing the oxford vaccine for a while now but does not get mentioned much.
