Daily case rate slightly down, daily case rate slightly up, 30 more than yesterday, but 100 less than last month on the same day. But 2000 up on this time six months ago, 20 more people in hospital on the same day 3 weeks ago, but 25 less than 4 weeks ago. Testing is down on last week, but kids are on holiday, but still up on 12 months ago. How much longer is this rubbish going to continue. And it seems now people are refusing to go back to work, well if you've been getting paid to stop at home, what did they expect.

Just out of interest, if we have a large amount of people catching flu in the winter, are people going to refuse to go to work, in case they catch it themselves, and will government pay them? Its about time all this crap came to a stop.

I rarely, if ever, agree with Teacake but on this occasion I must.
yes its not as if people are dying or theres a highly infectious variant, increasing hospital intakes despite higher vaccines and good weather

No.

//Its about time all this crap came to a stop.// Is that an offer?
Thanks to all those good decent folk that have self isolated and wanted to work and have had double vaccines or whatever age group should be commended as well as the front runnners, and not tolerate sniverling twingers.

Self isolating my foot, the town centers are crammed with workshy twingers, whatever twingers are.
Twitter fingered muppets my friend. Are you not at work then...?

Its right the information is available to those that want it or some would complain it was being hidden from us.

You can stick your fingers in your ear when its on.

Things are slowly improving and there'll come a time when few channels/sites reports these daily

No, I'm not at work, I'm one of those retired well of people that got accused of wanting the lock downs to continue because I'm alright jack, with my nest egg, but I think you will find its the other way round now. They've run out of excuses for not going back.
Did you wear a mask indoors in shops, cafes as still required when in Scotland last week?

Why do you say that, bob? The genie is now well and truly out of the bottle. Thousands of people die from ‘flu every year (apart from the last year when those who would have died from it apparently died from Covid). People now expect the government to keep them safe from infectious respiratory diseases. They expect to be paid to sit at home if they cannot work. They expect to be allowed to work at home even if it means their businesses and their customers suffer shoddy service. Their trade unions demand their members be “kept safe” by allowing employees to take a fortnight off if they are “pinged” by the Covid app. Many of their employers are garnering for a campaign to force their employees to be vaccinated against Covid or they cannot return to work (much to the glee of the employment lawyers). It’s but a short step to insist on all of that for ‘flu as well.

I really don’t share your confidence.
Ahh I misinterpreted TC, but for those can work from home I don't see a problem not rushing back to the office. As for workshy you can't tarnish everyone with the same brush as a retiree you know better I'm sure.

What has shops and cafes got to do with the OP? my cafe is on wheels, and the shops were open air farm produce, if that helps.
Question Author
So if someone gets flu in the office in the coming months, are they all going to rush back home? and will that include none office workers? because if so the country will come to a halt.
Question Author
We best all walk about with cling film on I guess.
I'm happy that you enjoyed your Holiday in Scotland mate, I'm sure they're missing you already.
Question Author
Well for sure I didn't have to endure the continual coverage of covid. As I said it needs to stop, we have the one and only tool to combat any virus, the rest is history. Or it should be.
I no longer work in an office and go back to work on Monday, but are lucky to be outside (mostly) it's all the other folk that I feel sorry for that might be trapped inside.
" And it seems now people are refusing to go back to work,"

Who are these "people" and what is your source of such a claim?
Totally agree with you teacake.
