    There is a lot of knowledge amongst us, I exclude myself.

    The COVID 19 is dominating the news:

    How worried should we be?

    Will this be Spanish flu proportions or just another contained outbreak as SARS and MERS were?

    Oh – and when will we start to see ‘Just in time’ manufacturing suffer?

    Oh, I got my reasonable comments on this matter deleted by the moderators…  Go carefully, Jones90, it’s a minefield of woke out there. And saying that will no doubt get this deleted as well.

    I do wonder when “normal holidays ” will return? This year, next year or next decade? Possibly a good few years yet if you read between the lines.

    I hope you are wrong Fwippers, but sadly I think it may be a couple of years before overseas holidays get back to normal

    I run a local cat sitting business which of course relies on people going away on holiday or for business.

    Six years of building it up, followed by devistation last year.

    I have a full diary for the summer months this year and I think most customers have booked in the UK, but I’m sure there’ll still be more cancellations to come.

    Fortunately as mentioned in previous posts I work 12 hours per week in a petrol station, so the wolf isn’t at the door yet! (Mrs 72 dudes is the Motability customer)

    Although we do not take overseas holidays, I hope I am wrong. The problem is with other mutations happening all the time, the risk people take is the possibility of a short cancellation, high insurance premiums and the possibility of some sort of quarantine, and the associated costs. A friend in the travel industry things 2025 could see something like normality. The upside is a demand for UK holidays but higher prices too. I recall many moons ago, a week in Fuerteventura for 5 was cheaper than 4 nights at center parks in November!

    The strange thing is Mitch they say each country has been given the same amount of vaccine proportionally. We have just completed our over 70`s and have now had to cut back due to a lack of available vaccines. They say the programme won’t get back up to speed for a week or two which would put us even further behind yourselves.

    I had my jab on Saturday, I was surprised when I received the text as I’m only 47, I was diagnosed 2 years ago with type 1 diabetes and have had several operations since a hit and run 4 years ago. I was grateful for the call up.

    Another mutation has been discovered here in the UK,  https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-56082573

    Looks like we shall have remain cautious and be alert for some time yet and it is, according to a source in the medical profession, looking increasing unlikely foreign holidays will happen for some considerable time.

    I’d be surprised if there weren’t mutations. It’s what viruses do.  The question is, is it more risky or less risky for people to catch.

    Letter to clinically extremely vulnerable received via email this evening.
    shield until March 31 – fine by me after nearly a year.
    have your jab – wife did today- followed by:

    “The vaccine is likely to make an important contribution to protecting you  from COVID” – “is likely”, not ”will” from mr Handcock

    “Even if you have had both doses of the vaccine, you should continue to follow this shielding guidance as we continue to assess the impact of vaccination among all groups”- so you still don’t actually know then, 16 million doses later and less than 600,000 second jabs administered  – confidence inspiring letter, imho.

    CW – purpose of the communication seems to reflect the national policy in dealing with pandemic: make sure neither government nor NHS can get the blame, for anything.
