World wide covid has sadly caused the death of about a million people. (although some of those might not have been killed by covid, merely it was present at death)

This puts it around the 12th/13th biggest killer, with heart issues being the biggest killer with 17 million a year.

In fact more people will die of diarrhea this year than covid-19.

Heres someone who knows it all..


Quote:
"I don’t and will not wear a mask while I’m driving - passengers or no passengers. I like to be able to see where I’m going, and as I have to wear glasses to drive, it would be more dangerous for me to wear a mask than not...

seriously though - my glasses steam up when I wear a mask, not a good idea when I’m driving.
And before anyone suggests washing up liquid or anything else, been there, done it, and glasses still not clear enough to see properly..."





Ok, so I don’t wear a mask but my passengers do - who’s protected and who isn’t?


you can transmit to them... they are protecting you

You sent
a day ago
masks protect others, not the wearer


But hang on a minute - if a mask wearer has the virus and coughs in my presence, he/she can’t infect me, just as if I was positive and sneezed without using a mask, and they’re wearing a mask, they can’t get it either. Right?
You sent
a day ago
the mask stops his/her spreading the virus further



But it doesn’t stop the virus from spreading. It doesn’t stop particles from the wearer’s mouth from landing on someone else. It doesn’t stop those particles from getting through and infecting the wearer.
And remember - that’s the government website and they’ll tell us anything they want.
I’m afraid their figures during this time have been (and still are) incorrect. And they’ve said as much.
Like I said before - whilst I still have a choice, I won’t wear one while driving. That’s MY choice and MY right. If a passenger wants me to wear a mask, I will refuse - on the grounds that they’re more likely to be involved in a car accident if I do. And where do I stand then regarding insurance?



No they haven’t - 50,000 people have died during Covid and have allegedly tested positive. Covid has not been the direct result of many of those deaths.
Of those where it has been involved, they already had life threatening/shortening conditions and would very likely have had the same result with the flu or norovirus.
I believe I had it back in January and February - the only symptom I didn’t experience was difficulty breathing. I had all the others. I was poorly for a good 6 weeks, and it took a few more before I started feeling properly well again.
Most of my friends had similar.
I visited my Dad in hospital in January on the day he had a stent fitted. He and my brother have remained well.
I’ve spent time with friends since lockdown was eased - they and I have remained well.
I’ve walked around shops without a mask (before it became mandatory) with little chance to keep socially distant, and have remained well.
Did the Covid cases rise after the BLM marches a few weeks ago? No.
The reason they’ve risen is because the kids have gone back to school. But then, all the germs always come out when the kids go back to school - it happens every year without fail.

But here’s the thing - any virus or bug is life threatening to the vulnerable. We don’t get locked down or told to wear masks.
SARS and MERS and Spanish flu and Asian flu were bigger killers - we didn’t get locked down and told to wear masks. "

on 26th September Stamford had 9 new cases. Since then there are believed to be 6 Morrisons staff have it and children at 2 primary schools so I am wondering if we are not nearer 20 in a week.

certainly the figure on LG inform is now 594 which is 26 increase including 18 in one day (1st October)

Don't forget that there was a technical shift that added some missed positive results and put them all onto the figures on the one day.

nah but we hear all the grapevine news! :wink:

According to the figures this morning SKDC jumped to 634 up to yesterday with the new figures added in but according to the map Stamford 7 caes in the last 7 days but quite a few in adjacent areas which might reflect 1 of the school cases. Grotsville and surrounding areas looking very bad though.

Figures probably won't update till thursday so we shall see then if this is still an upward trend or been nipped in the bud
