My view for a long time is that everyone is going to get it, but thankfully due to medical advances it's not going to kill us all.

The more people that get it the more immunity there is in society, and in time it will be no more than a nasty flu for those that get it bad.

It's worth remembering that today, tomorrow and yesterday 450 died each day of cancer.

We live with the effects of cancer, we will live with the effects of covid.

well we've overtaken Russia for the total number of positive tests so I reckon nearly13 percent have but we know a lot more about how to treat it what worries me is that if we all get it at the same time is the NHS going to collapse under the pressure

Covid can/could be prevented

Cancer cannot be prevented

Which would you prefer?

Last week I heard a figure of 800 deaths a day mentioned as the figure the government will consider acceptable. The government are saying the right things and pushing the vaccine to keep voters happy but in reality they are hoping to bump off a few hundred thousand pensioners and reduce the pensions bill

You really need to engage brain before operating mouth, (or keyboard) fifteen hundred people die every day on average. If they wanted to bump citizens off, they wouldn’t tax cigarettes and alcohol the way they do. Zero covid is an impossible dream.

And where did you “hear” this figure of eight hundred daily deaths? Are you hearing voices in your head? You can get help with that.

Oh, an “ology” that should impress Maureen Lipman.
