Re: Covid Vaccine issues

Re: Does Johnson and his Government really care about the NHS?

How come SERCO seem to be able to get their noses in so many public troughs? ... even though they have been (at best) useless and (at worst) dangerously incompetent? And how have they been able to get away with scarfing so much tax-payers' money? Serco Receives Track and Trace Contract Despite Fine ...

Re: How the Coronavirus Could Take Over Your Body ....

The traditional approach to medical care is to concentrate on the most sick (mostly the old, in this case). If the NHS can't keep up with demand, we might well see a change, in line with some other countries: focus on the ones with the best chance of recovery, who will mainly be the young. I couldn...

Re: How the Coronavirus Could Take Over Your Body ....

I've got a slight tickly cough and I feel a bit shit - but no temperature. I'll keep you posted.
