WHO have gave their backing to the Oxford vaccine this afternoon they have even backed the spreading out of the gap between first and second jab. That will piss of the eu 😂
Think the Oxford vaccine bashing had nothing to do with scientific results, just a pissed off EU throwing the toys out of the pram that they
fucked up their own vaccine rollout.
What's your take on this TD as i look forward to reading your posts, find them reassuring during these shit times.

It's complicated. A lot of the bad press here was due to a German reporter misreading the original research. He thought that in the original study that efficacy of the vaccine was only 8% for older people. In fact, this was the percentage of older people in the trial! AZ didn't recruit older people for ethical reasons. They considered it just too risky.

Macron that decided to act the c*nt by boasting that he didn't want the Oxford vaccine (which he couldn't get hold of) because it was shit. That was just him being a professional Frenchman.

Just before his outburst the EMA which decides on vaccine safety for the EU had decided that the Oxford Vaccine is safe and effective.

Countries that haven't authorized it for the elderly are just being cautious because it hadn't been tested on enough elderly people. I can understand that, because the side-effects of this vaccine could be quite nasty in someone who is very frail or near death.

I think I described the Oxford vaccine as the M4 Sherman and the Pfizer one as a King Tiger. The Oxford vaccine will be highly effective when deployed in big enough numbers although its stats are not as impressive as those reported for the Pfizer vaccine.

The official government 'R' rate has dropped below 1 for the first time since July 2020, currently between 0.7-0.9, lockdown is working.

UK R number below 1 for first time since July

The reproduction number - or R value - of coronavirus transmission across the UK has fallen below 1 for the first time since July, and is now between 0.7 and 0.9, according to the latest government figures.

Last week, the R - the average number of people an infected person infects - was between 0.7 and 1.

When the R is above 1, an outbreak can grow exponentially, but when it is below 1 it means the epidemic is shrinking.

An R number between 0.7 and 0.9 means that, on average, every 10 people infected will infect between seven and nine other people.

It's worth keeping an eye on how Israel is faring seeing as they started vaccinating before us. The infection is mostly mild when caught.
