    I’m not one of these “it’s just flu” people by any means, but the stats about deaths from flu and pneumonia versus Covid in England and Wales are interesting!

    Pre-Covid, I believe about 30,000 people a year died from flu or pneumonia, whereas between January and August 2020 only 400 people died of flu and 14,000 from pneumonia. 48,000 died from Covid - so Covid replaces a fair few of those deaths.

    What I’m getting at is that 111 Covid deaths in a day sounds alarming and is obviously 111 too many but in the spirit of “learning to live with it” the stats I found demonstrate how we will probably start treating it like flu and pneumonia.
    Yeah i mean it is a lot better than the 1000 per day who were dying in Jan but remember this is all because of the measures being taken, the restrictions and the vaccines. If it had been allowed to run riot through soceity unchecked, the deaths would have been astronomical.

    • I agree that Covid will have the dimensions of pre-2020 flu from now on.

        • German virologist Drosten believes that the vast majority of the population will not need any booster vaccination any time soon. Exceptions are old people and people with multiple risk factors. The goal should rather be to keep vaccinating more 60+ citizens. He does not expect any variant resistant to the vaccines any time soon. The WHO considers booster vaccinations for healthy people inappropriate when people in other countries are not vaccinated at all yet. (source)

                Too late. My Corona infection is running rampant. I don't fear death anymore... I will be re-united with some special people from my family. But I don't want my currently-alive family to follow me.

                        I've been to the doc. It was hysterical. The whole ordeal... they were in panic mode... I almost fainted bc everyone was in so much panic around me. Very unprofessional. I had to go in through the back door... and then had to wait eons outside the building... and then was tested by people wearing hazmat suits. I thought that I am far too pretty for this ish. Telling my school was kewt... my principal treated me like a criminal on the phone. 7 kids who are in my classroom are sick too... one of them little devils gave it to me, I assume. BC I've been a recluse ever since March 13th 2020.

                              We are to go back on 30 August.
                              In Belgium it will be 1 September.

                                June 18th was the last school day before the summer break. Schleswig-Holstein was the first Bundesland this year to go into the summer break. Bavaria for example went into summer break when Schleswig-Holstein started school again.

                                But here in the north we couldn't really call it summer... it was mostly raining and stormy with 20 that felt like 16.

                                    Wow, really early! My summer holiday started on July 19th. Wasn't a great summer here neither.
                                    I was at school today, actually. Organising my class room.

                                      every year I want to organize my class room too... but then when the final week of summer break arrives... I panic and try to do as many summer activities as I can bc I think I had not done enough in the previous 5 weeks.

                                                  • K-pop superstars BTS have officially cancelled their Map Of The Soul world tour amid uncertainty caused by the pandemic.

                                                    The chart-topping boy band had been due to embark on the tour in April last year before it was postponed as Covid-19 swept the world.

                                                    The tour, which had planned stops in cities including London, Toronto and Tokyo, has now been cancelled - the latest example of high-profile musicians being forced to rethink their live performances due to the virus.

                                                    News of BTS's cancelled tour follows similar announcements from artists including rock band Nine Inch Nails, country music star Garth Brooks and Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks.
