What the fuck do they know? If I'm looking for advice from a rock band on how viruses are transmitted I will ask Queen thank you very much.

The mother of my aunt just died from covid19 in the Netherlands. No funeral and she can't go there. This situation is so fucked up.

This ''british'' mutated virus is becoming a big problem here yet there are still 16 flights from the UK arriving here every single day. I don't get it, just close the border already with no exceptions.

Guess my area is starting to give out the vaccines. My mom's friend who is over 65 is getting her shot on Thursday. My parents didn't get any notice yet. They said be prepared to wait 1 to 2 or more hours. What a joke!

We're pissed off that none of our doctors want to get the freezer equipment to store the vaccines and give them to their patients. Unreal.

Good news from a bad situation. So many families in Texas live together. This could have been such a horrible event.  I guess it wasn't their time.

New covid strain in California. Oh joy!

I really dont understand this.

Bojo obviously thought he could try and have a dollar each way. Just madness, if he woukd lockdown borders then he can try and contajn community transmission.

Hes thinking more about the economy being the priority.

I don't understand my own government. This mutated virus is appearing more and more here, so why not at least ban every flight from the UK? We are in another lockdown since December, almost everything is closed, including schools, yet they do allow flights from the UK to come here. I saw a news report where they were interviewing passengers from the UK who had just arrived here. Some of them were tourists coming here for a holiday, not even essential travellers. Unbelievable.

I agree. They should, most countries should!....so a case of this mutated virus is now in Mexico. Brought by?

You guessed it, a British traveler!! Oy! :mellow:

Cancelling all public flights from the start would have been a good idea. Let the airlines and associated industries take the brunt. Any emergency/diplomatic flights can be arranged by a chartered private flight. 

I understand that many passenger planes have been reappropriated for cargo. 

Sadly the British take the most foreign holidays of any nation. It's ingrained in our culture. People will just pay for a holiday on their credit card and worry about paying for it later. It's mainly due to the combination of terrible weather and the high cost of holidays in the UK. Plus, thanks to putting in the early work, we can enjoy the legacy of colonialism by not having to learn a forrin' language! 

I'm sorry that some British people are making the situation worse in some countries. I find it embarrassing that folks think they're above the law.

Well, Im on the side of living your life and not letting COVID take your freedoms away. Let people that want to live do it and anyone that want to sit it out out of fear of COVID can. It isn't fair to put economic burden on people trying to make an honest living by shutting them down.

Maybe these attenuated "rushed to market" vaccines are causing some mutant COVID to start spreading?

No.

Well, the government finally decided to ban all flights from the UK, South Africa and countries in South America where there is a mutated virus, starting this saturday. Don't know why this didn't happen sooner...

It's about protecting those who are part of the risk group and have good reasons to be afraid, and making sure the hospitals aren't getting overwhelmed. But I'm sure you already know this.

I think it's too late to ban those. They're talking about banning non-essential travel here. But even then people can still drive to France or Holland and catch a flight there. Some people apparently still 'need a holiday'.

I agree, it's not difficult to get here by car from the UK or find another way, but I read that there are on average 16 flights from the UK arriving here on a daily basis, I'm hoping that the mutated virus will at least spread less quickly this way.

This mindset makes zero sense. It is a virus. It spreads from person to person. You can't just "decide" to be safe or cautious and be fine. If a moron is ignoring the pandemic, their selfishness literally spreads to those who are taking it seriously

Dr. Fauci is now saying either wear a mask with a filter or two masks to cover your face. it seems by the end of February the new strain of covid will be in all the US states and it is more infectious than the original strain. I do think this virus is thinking and is way ahead of all of us including the doctors.

I have tons of masks with filters so I'm good for now. But who knows what the future will bring?

I think even with a vaccine, some people will still get covid and hopefully may live, but then again who knows? At least now the doctors and President Biden are telling you they don't know. Not that it helps me worry less.

Larry King died about Covid. RIP.

RIP Larry, but after watching "Bombshell" about Fox news and Megan Kelly, he wasn't such a stand up guy. He had a good long life and tons of money so there you go!

It is already in many US states and the doctors believe it'll be in all the states by the end of February. And still many people don't have the vaccine yet. Oh joy!

Many of the National Guard who fought the rioters two weeks ago came down with covid due to many not wearing masks and being attacked by them. Wasn't surprised by this at all.

I hope President Biden makes it mandatory for everyone to wear a mask no matter where you live. It has to be done because many people still won't wear one and not sure if we can slow this virus down without wearing a mask around others and with it mutating so quickly, who knows?
