Trump ‘considering fast-tracking UK’s coronavirus vaccine before US election’

Edit: To be fair I don't think he said mandatory.

 

I read this, but the original link Financial Times said it was came from 3 top democrats. So how legit it is who knows.

Last week, here in Birmingham, there was the 'threat' of a local lockdown, due to 'rising' number of coronavirus 'cases'.

 

This week:

Birmingham 'is no coronavirus hotspot' warns former city chief as rate of cases falls

https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/birmingham-is-no-coronavirus-hotspot-18820138

 

How convenient.

 

Quote

The city of Birmingham was placed on the Government's national watchlist on August 21 as an "area of enhanced support", meaning it will be provided with extra resources and support to help increase testing and manage outbreaks if necessary.

No new restrictions have been placed on residents, however, and the number of new cases is falling.

Birmingham currently has the 17th highest rate in England, with 23.6 cases per 100,000 people recorded in the seven days to August 20 - down from 30.4 in the previous seven days.

 

Some good points are raised here, and it has to be said that the Birmingham Mail is just one of many local news rags that fail to realise that Birmingham is a pretty big city and these 'cases' are not widespread.

 

Quote

Speaking to BBC Radio 4 presenter Sarah Montague today, John Clancy, a former leader of Birmingham City Council, has suggested that hyperlocal interventions are required in order to tackle an increases.

He told the BBC: “The real fact of the matter is that the cases are increasing in a very localised way in the patchwork of the city – for example, 87 of Birmingham’s 132 neighbourhoods didn’t record a single test of positive Covid-19  in the last week. 

“What’s happening is hyperlocal outbreaks and the problem is if you then take a sledgehammer and say the whole of Birmingham is a hotspot what you are not doing is dealing with the problem with a hyperlocal intervention.

“There can be very special cases in a special neighbourhood that causes a sudden increase. But putting a whole city into lockdown because certain parts of the city has an issue really isn’t the way to deal with the matter.

"What we are not seeing is an increase in hospital admissions.

"Testing is showing that the disease is in the community but it is not now leading to hospital admissions and it is not now, thankfully, leading to deaths.

"It is probably a waste of resources, time, effort and energy to shut down an entire city. Literally 716,000 Brummies live in an area where there was no positive tests in the last week. 371 people living in areas which haven’t recorded any cases in the last eight weeks."

 

I know the whole 'cases' thing is pretty dubious, but I did ponder on this myself earlier in the 'lockdown', namely if there were no 'cases' in my local area, why were we all 'acting like we've got it'? If a few people in Northfield happened to catch this 'virus', why should people in Sutton Coldfield, miles away at the opposite end of the city, have to face a 'local lockdown'?

 DR. todd is either ignorant or intentionally misleading he misquotes david on virtually everything 

VERY nice to see the 11 thousand down votes have discouraged DR no integrity from making part 2

 

 

 

This point may not hold a lot of worth when judging the two and their conclusions but I watched 10 minutes of that, and recognised the cuts. If it was a drinking game I'd call the ambulance before we started. I don't know if he ever made any sense but first impressions, prick. I'll see if I can force down the concluding 6 minutes

COVID-19 aka 'THE PANDEMIC' now used for political purposes, local policing, 'surgical' psy-ops or even financial speculation… how easy and handy…

 

Hello John !... got a big real estate deal soon ready for settlement by there but local market prices are a bit high these days ! could you please broadcast another COVID case rise ASAP ?!... no no it's the last time you'll not hear from me before long ! got my word !

 

It's getting too blatant now as much the media people are being randomly pulling a new 'COVID rise' out of their hat almost every day… it's become a tool of local politics or speculation in many fields related to anything but 'public health', Medicine or COVID-19…

 

The MEDIA ever and again, and WE stupid cattle are being made wear paper masks, 'social distance' or stay home just to help some rich PIGS make more easy money…

Oxford Professor Says People Have Become “Overly Frightened” of Coronavirus

 

https://summit.news/2020/08/24/oxford-professor-says-people-have-become-overly-frightened-of-coronavirus/

 

Father Anthony de Mello SJ, tells the story of Pestilence who was on its way to Damascus and sped by a chief’s caravan in the desert.

 

“Where are you speeding to?” asked the chief.

 

“To Damascus, I mean to take a thousand lives.”

 

On its way back from Damascus, Pestilence passed by the caravan again.

 

The chief said, “It was 50,000 lives that you took, not a thousand!”

 

“No,” said Pestilence. “I took a thousand, it was Fear that took the rest.”

That ghoul. Grinning wide at the trap.

 

I hope that they don't accept it. I don't want to incriminate myself by exposing my ideas to resist but at the same time I can say fuck them. I'll try to warn the dumb scum they are in jeapordy when it comes to sweeping me up, and whatever happens happens after they ignore it

School bus policy will see pupils in same seats and told to 'avoid loud talking'

 

Children taking buses to school will be asked to sit in the same seat for every journey, only face forwards and to "avoid loud talking, shouting or singing" according to new policies.

the new term starts next month.

Pupils are also being asked to avoid using public transport.

The council says on some rural public bus services, it will put on extra buses just for school children and students.

The authority said seating arrangements will reflect school year group ‘bubbles’, with the eldest pupils at the rear and the youngest at the front.

Pupils aged over 11 also have to wear face coverings unless exempt

The guidance also states: "During the journey, pupils should face forwards, not touch others, not move out of their seat and avoid loud talking, shouting or singing."

Ed Potter, Cabinet member for children’s services, said: “The health and safety of our school children is vitally important at all times, but especially at the moment. We want our pupils – and their parents and carers – to be confident that they can travel safely to school once terms starts next month, and that’s why this guidance is so important.

“I’m extremely grateful to the council’s transport team who have worked incredibly hard to prepare this document ahead of schools going back next month. I’d also like to thank all the schools and transport operators who commented on, and contributed to, the draft version.

“Our draft guidance was shared with the Department for Transport and Department for Education and used to inform and advise the national guidance that was issued last week. It was also shared with councils across the country to help them prepare their guidance documents. This is something we can be incredibly proud of, and people in Shropshire can be sure that we are offering the very best advice, and advice that is held in high regard nationally.”

Super rich party it up during COVID-19, the ‘poor person’s virus’

 

August 15, 2020 | 5:50pm | Updated

 

While the rest of us hunker down, forgo our vacations and family reunions, and suffer from maskne (the acne that comes with wearing a mask) — in the world of the uber-rich, it’s very, very different.

 

Despite the coronavirus still killing 1,000 people a day in America and unemployment is at an all-time high, billionaires are throwing parties, traveling on private jets, luxuriating on yachts around the world, buying citizenship in “safe” countries and having fun on $12,000 motorized surfboards.

 

“Coronavirus is a poor person’s virus,” one wealthy Silicon Valley denizen told Vanity Fair.

 

And while the majority of the country is tightening their belts, the rich have become richer with billionaires becoming 10% wealthier during the COVID-19 crisis — and they’re starting to live in a parallel universe than the rest of us.[…]

 

billionaire David Geffen has been hanging on his yacht, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are cruising Greece in another yacht after receiving “honorary” citizenship, Facebook overlord Mark Zuckerberg has been trolling the waters off Hawaii in a $12,000 surfboard, Jeff Bezos and his lady friend have been (multiple) house-hunting, buying up millions of dollars in property in Los Angeles to build a compound while traveling via private jet to several cities around the country, former Mayor Bloomberg splashed out $45 million on a Colorado compound (joining a host of other billionaires buying in that state as well as Montana and Wyoming); and others are spending millions to buy citizenship in “safe” countries like New Zealand.

I was under the impression that the patient or their family had to be consulted before DNR was allowed.

 

Yes they are supposed to. They did that with my dad, that was prior to CO-VID kicking off  though. (he had bone disease)

I avoid msm as much as possible and just read links like yours, so I’m not too sure.

 

From what I hear from different people when I’m working though, they’re toeing the party line.

 

Just went and looked at one of the major daily rags and yep, party line all the way; and when you open the link to their rag, an orange banner comes across the bottom of the page filled with in your face bullshit along the lines of ‘no room for rumours; their reporting based on verified facts, not social media conspiracies’ and more tripe  in that vein; 🙄 laughable really; another twilight zone moment.

 

Took a pic of it but can’t load it onto my account 🤔, but

They have to double down on this BS now or they will have to explain themselves. Apparently there is a NY times article doing the rounds that exposes china for posting fake news that invented the fake pandemic, I am yet to find this article. That is one of their exit strategies, blame china for faking the virus. Ya, sure, not buying that one. The western media and governments were directly responsible for this mess and we need an investigation in this grand fraud and people need locking up.

So, there it is New Zealand; it is what it is.

You've got a strong, intelligent and compassionate leader who is doing the best for the people of her country. Can you for one second imagine Ardern doing or saying anything mentioned above? 

Before you get too angry about the measures being put in place or the way things are being handled, remember you are the envy of the world right now. 

It's a circus here, cases and deaths are rising every day, and there's no end in sight.

Sometimes in life you're faced with a decision which might only have a bad outcome or a terrible outcome. Take it from me, I'll take your bad outcome every time.
