    I think it will be as in England for sure as the link between rising cases and hospital cases has been broken because of the vaccination programme.

    The emphasis is going to be placed on the individual to assess their own situation with rules replaced by advice . The latter has already started as its not law to wear an exemption pass if you cant wear a face covering . Trying to tell that to doormen on a pub is another issue though :confused::eek:o_O

    With the furlough system winding down
    Covid: UK's furlough scheme starts to wind down - BBC News
    many people and/or businesses will look to a return sooner than later, and although there will still be precautions, I think that apathy coupled with economic reasons will see us back to as normal as soon as is practically possible

    And so:-
    Huge vaccination push launched in Manchester as new pop-up to open in Exchange Square
    The NHS and town hall want as many under-30s as possible to come forward for their jab before July 19, as more walk-ins open across the city and soldiers join the vaccine effort
    Huge vaccination push launched in Manchester with new pop-up site

    Oh really ???


    Then why was there a spike in covid cases from all those stupid idiots attending Wembley arena to watch the Scotland -v- England football game ???

    No doubt there will be yet another spike in the days to come due to the idiots attending the Germany -v- England game.

    I only quoted Greater Manchester figures (as it is in my locale), I don't know about other areas - especially those within the Capital city(???)
    As for the game tomorrow, as it's in Rome, I guess it'll be travelling idiots that will see any further spikes(?)

    The Boris Announcement: (England)
    The Change/s that's gonna come:-
    (Based on the figures (not yet available)
    • Acknowledgement that the Vaccination programme is not yet complete
    • Acknowledgement that COVID will always be with us.
    • Acknowledgement that figures are still on the rise (and "Deaths are inevitable")
    • Acknowledgement that Winter could be tricky, - with/where influenza awaits - and possible Booster jabs required
    • Acknowledgement that it's a Gamble/Risk
    So -
    • Social distancing to end - Bubbles to end
    • Night clubs to re-open - (folks to freely mix in an enclosed space (?!?))
    • Encouragement to 'Get back to work': "Your economy needs you"
    • Face masks no longer a requirement: Down to the choice - and conscience - of the individual
    • Let's hope for the best
    Thoughts ???

    I still dont know why they place resources into the badly affected towns like they did with my home town of Bolton ?

    We had many pop up Covid Vaccination Centres and Test Centres . It clearly worked as we are only currently only 50 over the England average . We "enjoyed " the title Covid Capital of England for over a month . It does show that it can work if the correct resources are applied and of course the art of persuasion for the vaccine hesitents . .We are now the lowest in the borough

    The boroughs though different, are not that different, and given the degree of movement there is across the area (both for Work and pleasure), I think that 'Greater' Manchester should have a Co-ordinated Covid strategy, - but it seems not.

    I have changed my mind as well . I was all for everything opening up on July 19th but something they are not telling us is how frickin nasty this Delta variant actually is . It is more transmissable for sure but its far more deadly as well . I have just partially recovered from this and its the nastiest thing I have ever had . Its the flu from hell and is much more closer to flu than the original . The original is a fluffy pussy cat compared to this .I am glad I am fully vaccinated which has led to my quick recovery. I just fear opening everything up is going to make this rife through the community .

    At some stage I will be doing thread on this and I'll be placing it in the Personal Section as I just want to share my experiences with the membership and not Jo Public. I also have a sickly picture of the phlegm I brought up as well for avoidance of doubt that I am making all of this up to bang the drum for the vaccine programme . I wouldn't want to see this variant on an unvaccinated person as it is a Big Killer .

    Sorry to hear that you copped for covid - hopefully you are ok - although "let continued vigillance be your Covid credo" = not so so much for what you do, but the actions of others (see below)

    Yes, and there was Mrs Windsor visiting a place in the North West where Covid is running riot, neither she, or any of her entourage or anyone she met was wearing masks, and no-one was keeping social distance - all of them were breaking current rules !!! - but I bet not one of them will be prosecuted or even challenged for it !!! :mad::mad::mad:
