Mr. Dolby, don't you start talking like a.politician. Why do they use such phrases as "road map out of this" ? What is wrong with."plan" ? Honestly for so called educated people they leave a lot.to be desired. I k ow what you meant and you are right but how many volumes?

Continued falls in the 7 day rolling key numbers, and vaccinations total now over 15m first jabs.

- 7 day average of reported cases down 28% ↓

- 7 day average of reported deaths down 25% ↓”


The UK head of Pfizer Ben Osborn tells Times Radio that they don't expect to have to change their vaccine to deal with new variants

He says 'we've not seen a drop off in efficacy' with new variants

Just in from the positive news desk :geek:

NHS chief Simon Stevens has said vaccine delivery is likely to double in the next couple of months.

"While supply might vary week to week, we may be giving up to twice as many vaccinations overall".


15 million now vaccinated

Whos a silly Krankie then?

Millions of pounds in taxpayers' money is set to be wasted on paying for empty hotel rooms after SNP ministers drastically overestimated the number needed for Scotland’s “completely unworkable” quarantine system. Michael Matheson, the transport minister, last week boasted about securing 1,300 rooms after block booking entire hotels in Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh, as he prepared for a huge influx of international travelers expected to be caught by Scotland's stricter regime. However, it has emerged that as of Tuesday, just 14 people are in quarantine north of the border. Industry sources believe the low number is at least partially explained by a glaring loophole in the rules.

Could be a kick back "scam" to some SNP Hoteliers.

Pfizer vaccine no longer has to be kept at ultra low temperatures to operate.

one dose is proving to be very effective

the gbp/usd rate hit 1.40 today, first time in fucking years, market sentiment and most chatter on Bloomberg today puts this rise due to how well the vaccine rollout is going, therefore our economic prospects are much brighter

come on now boris, get us open ASAP and let’s not lose this momentum. The roadmap on Monday has to be positive
