UK: Accident and Emergency "like a warzone" "Patients are crammed in, shoulder to shoulder, and are spilling out into the corridors."

Latest English Covid hospital data: Increases on all measures over recent week - admissions up 26%. Increases in people in hosp primarily for covid & people in critical care too (note critical care available since June 2023). All regions⬆️except SW where its highest but flat.

DJ-UK "media" are advertising + "infotainement" =hardly "real info"....

This πŸ‘‡πŸ» is the current NHS guidance for healthcare workers. If you have symptoms of Covid but feel well enough to work, feel free to spread your germs to all your sick patients. No need to take an LFT test. Just slap on a baggy blue mask (if you can be bothered) and crack on!

A look at [url]https://health-study.joinzoe.com/data[/url] or https://health-study.joinzoe.com/data also indicating increase of CoViD-cases in UK.

Thankfully still relatively low currently, but the uptick is apparent in our group, and many appear to have been infected for the first time.

DJ, It may be hard to get good data on the variants that are spreading in the UK. There is very limited testing-very likely even in hospitals. Part of the spread may be in hospitals....Some groups may stay without (major) symptoms-still do a lot of spreading...There are very likely several (sub)variants spreading....

[url]https://outbreak.info/location-reports?loc=GBR&xmin=2023-02-15&xmax=2023-08-15[/url] or https://outbreak.info/location-reports?loc=GBR&xmin=2023-02-15&xmax=2023-08-15 gives a view on lack of info....

DJ-I find it terrible to see "the duran" denying the pandemic...utter stupidity....They do have good info on international relations-but thier view on both climate and health is plain stupid...

I've been reading the papers this morning and they are banging on and on about this new variant and telling people not to panic - which of course worries people - and at the bottom of each article it casually mentions that there is no evidence that this variant is more dangerous then any other. It's so irresponsible. Everyone has moved on from covid now, it's old news. No one cares. People are getting colds/winter bugs and just acting normally, they are not testing - why would you? It's just a cold now for most people and we've all had hundreds of colds over our lifetimes. 

What amuses me is that the word Brexit was constantly in the press and on people's lips until Covid came along, and overnight Brexit disappeared. Presumably something new will come along shortly and we'll all forget about about Covid. Frankly it can't come soon enough for me. I'm so over Covid.

Those who got it wrong, for whatever reason, may feel defensive and retrench into a position that doesn’t accord with the facts.

KiwiMum...CoViD does not care for (y)our feelings...I hope nobody "enjoyed the pandemic" ...pandemics are not supposed to be "funny"...CoViD killed tens of millions...

Replying to 
BA.X:  The Daily Express pipes up "Scientists have suggested Brits may need to don masks again as a new variant of Covid-19 is recorded in multiple countries."

link [url]https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/1802588/covid-face-masks-variant[/url] or https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/1802588/covid-face-masks-variant 

with some indications children (often unvaccinated) run higher risk...

-----

KiwiMum...on the role of "mass media"...yes "Brexit" was a hype...NATO is not doing very good fighting Russia in Ukraine (DJ-I expect NAto to end up with NApoleon, NAzi's...finding an end in Russia...) so...yes...CoViD "news" could be used as a distraction from other failures...Only to underline the CoViD policy failure...both "living with the virus" and the idea non-sterilizing vaccines would get us out of this crisis may show to be a disaster....

…and now turning my attention to the horrific situation in hospitals and other healthcare settings, where masking is no longer required and workers who have tested POSITIVE for Covid are actively encouraged to return straight to work, this also needs to be urgently addressed.
