    UK Department of Health estimates 17,000 average flu deaths per annum in recent years, so statistics, as always, seem to vary greatly.
    "Covid deaths" seems to mean deaths where Covid was present, but not necessarily the cause of death.
    Did you watch the link I posted ? I felt the data was presented in a pragmatic way.

    Anyone who gives a flying .... about his fellow man will welcome a full proof, fully tested vaccine against Covid.

    It is estimated we currently have around 60,000 Covid related deaths in the UK. This before we enter the dark days in a couple of months of the dreaded second wave, which could see off as many as 85,000 in 3 months in a recent worst case scenario prediction by sage.

    Some in this country need to wake up to what this is, this isn't some flu bug which kills your granny, this is sars on steroids.

    I put CBD only cannabis (no THC) in a dynavap vaporiser. About 0.05g once or twice a day.

    There are air quality monitoring stations here, I think they measure micrograms of PM2.5 particles per cubic metre of air. The scale goes up to 500 - above 300 is the hazardous end of the scale above unhealthy and very unhealthy. It's been over 500 for most of the last week.

    I lived in Portland once before on 07-08. It was much more fun that time around.

    The air quality sounds really scary. I wondered about the CBD reference. I use caps, or oil, sometimes. It helps to chill me out and because there's no psychoactive THC in it I don't get scarily stoned. It's good to hear that it's helping you.

    The point of my post was merely that despite having certain illnesses it's not an immediate death sentence, the 'just saying' was to highlight it was in part jest.
    I'm also not passing up the the vaccine, but i will do given the chance until it's been proven to be safe after a couple of years if possible - is this not sensible. I'm very fit, i don't see why i should compromise that by putting something in my body that i am uncertain about.

    The first British guy to contact Covid in Wuhan is well documented. A 27 year old who kept fit & was in peak condition. It nearly finished him off so i wouldn't presume anything with this virus.

    I suppose it depends on whether you want the needle or the possibility of the ventilator. Not to mention having it will protect your family, friends & colleagues.
