Re: Brexit changes

Re: Off topic Political Posts moved from Coronavirus thread

In England, I believe that approximately 79% are over the age 18.
NHS England gives 27M with at least 1 dose in a population of about 54M.
27M / 54M = 50%
50 / 0.79 = 63%

Re: Off topic Political Posts moved from Coronavirus thread

Yes and you'll recognise the unsatisfactory position that the Danish government has made for itself.

Re: Off topic Political Posts moved from Coronavirus thread

I find advice offered by many state health authorities to be myopic and those in government accepting such advice to be fearful of consequence.

I conclude that governments are content to allow...

Re: Off topic Political Posts moved from Coronavirus thread

When vaccinating a population, you have to start somewhere.

In the case of most, if not all, countries the effort to vaccinate the old first arose from the higher proportion of infections in the...

Re: Off topic Political Posts moved from Coronavirus thread

All this is true, but vaccination does more than protect the individual. When applied to a high enough proportion of the population it can also eliminate the threat overall.

Re: Derek Chauvin trial

George Floyd is not on trial here.

What he said or did while he was being arrested did not give Chauvin the right to act as judge jury and executioner.
And yes, I watched the video and yes I've...

He was lucky.
He had no other option than to throw money and expertise...

Only Brains will be able to do it, bringing the entire Brazilian population back from the dead.
