This virus isn't gone, it's not on vacation, it's not grown tired, it never sleeps, and behaving as if it is is like dropping your guard against Rocky Marciano. Keep your masks on and keep a safe distance from others.

Is the "surge" the result of actual deaths become caused by Covid or simply by the threshold limit on PCR being raised so it's sensitivity increases and more people test positive.

A threshold over 40 on the PCR will yield a positive result on every test on every human on earth because everybody is carrying some dead corona RNA in their system, it's natural for any human who resides on this earth.

Some countries are using a threshold close to 35. The "asymptomatic confirmed cases" are most likely false positives.

UK public warned to get serious

With BoJo at the wheel? Good luck with that.

Get serious? When they voted for a clown and his corrupt party of spivs.

Serious means loss of human rights , $14000 fines and snitching on your neighbors. And poverty, bankruptcy, eviction, domestic violence and depression.

Currently less than 20 Covid related deaths per day in the UK and this level of overbearing control is instituted. Unbelievable.

-7 ( +2 / -9 )

These numbers don't show the full picture though, the average of related deaths is 80 but the life expectancy is 80.3. Also the lockdown is already estimated to have caused 50,000 additional deaths from disruptions to the medical system and other societal effects resulting from economic inactivity - the cure is worse than the disease at this point:

The deaths counted ialso nclude those from road accidents and so on if the person had covid in the last 28 days too, I'm not making it up

This virus isn't gone, it's not on vacation, it's not grown tired, it never sleeps,

As we know by now, it only goes on vacation for Antifa riots. Smart virus. But that said, yes, the virus is out there, but these stupid lockdowns and Big Brother measures are doing more damage than any virus. Sad to see how many are willing to accept government overreach.

Countries that flattened their curve by 'accepting government overreach' are living their lives out and about by Americans, but without the massive infection rates and numbers of deaths seen in America.

Johnson’s measures are pitiful, just as laughable as Japan’s. Close the pubs at 10pm, it won’t stop infected people passing on Covid at 9.55pm. If they enforced the social distancing and mask wearing rules in the first place this wouldn’t be such a problem now.

What a utter incompetent he is. Worst PM in history.
