Likely be worst in mid January, once the Christmas and New Year sales till’s are filled, then, and ONLY then, will the true numbers be released.

Get real. How many have died from other causes? Do you expect everyone to go bankrupt to see if the death rates dont rise?

A great deal of people have died from other causes…which conveniently falls under the radar!

This type of reporting just feds the bed wetters, and makes they even more scared then they are! Pathetic! As an old gentleman said to me last week in town, ” people today are ridiculous” ” I’ve been through the war and people didn’t act like this” . I think that just says it all really., What’s happened to the British fighting spirit?

Mr Justice.

I thought in the war, people were fitting gas masks on themselves and their children to prevent death or injury from poison gas.

People were putting black outs up, frightened of being seen by enemy bombers.

I also know of people hiding in shelters in their garden, or under the stairs, or under a metal table in the kitchen.

PEOPLE DID act exactly ‘like this’.

And back then the enemy could be ‘seen’ and not lurking within, whereby a close friend, a lover, your partner or both could kill you with an invisible breath.

No! What people liked was everybody sticking together ,all in the same boat, fighting a REAL enemy that killed everyone, not an average age of 82 with underlying health issues. You need to wake up ,or the life you knew will be gone forever!!

Your the one that needs to wake up ‘Mr Justice’. It’s not just about the deaths. Which are currently over 60,000, people who will not be with their families at Christmas. It’s also the lasting affects of having had covid. It attacks the lungs. We are going to see in the decades to come millions of people having to deal with damaged to the lungs. Also, the death rate we have, is WITH RESTRICTIONS. Imagine how bad it could be if we acted like the Americans and ignored it. You like to compare it against other viruses but these others have never had lock downs and restrictions to stem their spread. Covid is worst and it is more deadly. It is our efforts that are keeping covidiots like yourself safe.

You are probably the BIGGEST bed wetter on here.im surprised if you ever leave your house, but if you do, you drive you car,on your own wearing a face nappy! Pathetic! You have the right to an opinion like anyone else, but this isn’t you using your own mind,just repeating the crap they tell you. Very sad!

I prefer to be safe than a covidiot and pass it to my parents and kill them. It is simple stuff and basic consideration for others. Not sure why you find it so hard to understand. Wash your hands, keep your distance, wear a mask when you can’t keep your distance. It is simple things like this that will keep the pubs and restaurants open. It is people like you that are driving infection rates up and causing the closure of businesses.

60,000 families think it’s deadly. 1,540,000 deaths world wide. If you think it’s not then go and volunteer to help with the disposal of the bodies. They need all the help they can get, morgues are full!
