    There was a pandemic in spring, new virus, no treatment, no question. But at the moment, as Dave Mole’s link helpfully shows, Covid simply seems to be displacing flu and pneumonia and it may do so all winter. The comparison with expected deaths over the five year average will tell. That is all.

    just a thought
    John K, a very interesting viewpoint. It could also be said that the older one is, the fewer vaccines one has generally taken (no MMR when I was a kid, you simply went to a measles party). However, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. The older one gets the fewer bugs one is exposed to as one’s social circle gets smaller (compare a casual multi-shagger, drug-abusing student with an elderly couple going out for a meal once a month). I know, I have been both in my time. People incarcerated in care homes are sitting ducks. My worry is that by all this distancing, sanitising and mask wearing, we are weakening our immune systems. Time to lick a dog poo bin.

    "you're not a wolf, you're a pseudo-wolf created by false positives"
    ....it's all downhill from here.

    We will lock all the flock in a shed for months on end without any access to veterinary care or the ability to show natural behaviour. Never mind a big proportion of the flock will die of coccidial or cryptosporidial disease or even that some might start to show extremely abnormal behaviour leading to loss of condition and disease, so long as the 0.2% chance of an individual sheep dying from the wolf is eradicated.
