Good to know that it's not true, as it's now been officially denied.

Mind you the AP article is like a game Dubai story bingo - "Legions of migrant workers", "as the call to prayer echoed overhead" etc etc.

The cancelling of all non emergency surgery is a good marker for what's coming . Interesting to see how this pans out .

I don't think the numbers increasing are rumours are they?

I think some restrictions might not be a terrible idea in a very short term way, but **** going back to lockdown.

I think they'll try and avoid that if they can as the vaccine push is on full throttle but there's still a lot of smoke and mirrors as always in the city .

Just had a whatsapp about it, not sure if legit but have asked a mate who runs a restaurant.

Looks legit. Have forwarded to you Millhouse.

Yeah, think you're right.
Anyway, all just come out in the press, DJs and live entertainment banned. Not sure what that'll do but it'll upset some bellends so can't be a bad thing.

It'll just upset those blokes with the tight jeans and no socks poncing around The Marina

Unless they can figure out a way for each vaccinated person to go out and vaccinate a further 1.4 other people, then the vaccine drive will never be able to outrun the infection rate.

I often wonder how these people exist at home. Do they dress just as cunty and behave like they're important there too? Or do they go home and become normal, chilled out humans?

I honestly don't think it matters. If the old, ill and special cases have been vaccinated in this first 20% then the rest of us can carry on as normal, might get a bit poorly but the reality is the overwhelming majority of people will be just fine.

Bless...Poor souls, desperately upset by the negative comments the first time round, now riding the wave as high as they can this time round.
