964 today and a record high 55,892 cases.

Preston ICU is full and they’ve had 4 urgent discharges to try to make room. RPH are saying it’s only going to get worse.

False dichotomy alert. I don't quite see how the two are related. I mean it's not an either or is it? Given the furlough and mortgage schemes (both excellent btw) are already in place before Cumm

Have spent a couple of days thinking what to write on here as I am utterly bewildered as to what this so called government is up to regarding schools. Firstly, before Christmas my school had seve

All I can say is it's a nice bonus as a key worker that my son arrived today instead of his due date of 22nd December. Work have very generously offered me extended Pat Leave for 3 weeks full pay as o

She's been told not to. They'll contact her was what she was told.

Local PH teams are making vaccine decisions at local level, some are targeting care homes and staff first, then NHS staff, followed by independent living.

Hang in there Mrs TS, they’ll get to you shortly I’m sure.

and as my sons just told me, - be very careful because if I became ill with it at my age and with my health, I wouldn’t be guaranteed a bed. He’s right isn’t he!

My mum isn't under much threat as she's struggling to get out at the moment. Her knees are playing her up I'm afraid. 

I think it should be people in the NHS, Teachers, Bus Drivers etc etc first as they're the most vulnerable and we need them to avoid the whole shebang falling over. Us old timers can wait a bit longer.

I was telling my wife that yesterday. She's got her family trait of thinking they're going to live for ever. Her dad went into hospital in Granada for open heart surgery at the age of 84. They told him his chances were 60/40 of success. He didn't bother to leave a will ! It took us three years to sort out his affairs in three countries.

She's quite thoughtless about this, she was still picking up the grand daughter from primary school before Xmas. What she can't see is that before too long there won't be enough beds and nurses to go around and decisions will have to be made as to who gets treatment and who doesn't. We are likely to fall into the " put them outside " category.

Lots of talk on the news and in the media because London hospitals are full, I feel sorry for everyone involved, it’s an awful situation and don’t downplay the seriousness of the current plight. 

Every winter A&E departments North of Watford are treating patients in ambulances, in corridors, someone close to me got her cancer diagnosis sat in a corridor at 3am having sat in A&E for 6hrs, just a terrible situation in this day and age.

You have to hope that moving forward, after Covid, this government will fund the NHS properly, build more capacity and give this country a health service that can cope with the demands placed upon it.

Trouble is that Conservatives in Government believe the NHS isn't fit for purpose and are determined to prove it through defunding.

This is THEIR version of 'exploiting a good crisis'.

Fortunately I do think the vast majority of voters see through that and see the value of universal healthcare.

Then again, anti-vax keeps growing and other bullshit, so maybe I should be more worried.

They've had 9 months to plan for a winter surge, it's not as if they've not known it was coming and what have they done ? Fantastic schemes like Eat out and Spread the Virus, half hearted, delayed lockdowns and a Test and Trace system that even after all the money spaffed on it is not fit for purpose.

NHS staff face burnout as Covid hospital admissions continue to rise | World news | The Guardian

Hopefully nobody was ignorant enough to socialise outside of their bubble last night. 

Also, on the Nightingales:-

The Royal College of Nursing’s England director, Mike Adams, said staff leave was being cancelled to deal with the surge in demand. Adams told Sky News the expectation of a mass rollout in capacity through the Nightingale hospitals was misplaced. Adams said: “If we are having to cancel leave to staff these areas, the obvious question is: where will the staff come from to open the Nightingales?

I would like to correct something I posted yesterday regarding the situation in the royal preston hospital. 
 

The ICU is full. They are now having to clear as quickly as they can, non-covid wards to make into extra covid wards.

Govt about to do 258th Covid u-turn and keep all London Primary schools  shut. 

It’s the right thing to do, but why oh why can’t they make these decisions when everyone else can see what coming?

Nothing has changed in 2 days....

George Soros. Hell, he's blamed for everything in certain circles and countries (like his native Hungary), so stuff it, it is his fault. Or Jeremy Corbyn, or Peppa Pig. It is not the fault of the party that has been governing the UK for the last 10 years.

Captain Calamity and Alan Partridge clone Gavin Williamson presiding over another government U-turn disaster with all schools set to be shut owing to the rampant new phase of the virus. In this government of all talents our Gavin is in line for the Chris Grayling Award as the most incompetent minister of the year.

"Let's send this virus packing by Christmas".

LEST WE FORGET.

He is a serial liar. He thinks being PM is simply a matter of saying what people want to hear. And what pees me off is after this idiotic pronouncement he then gives and takes away a Christmas break and then promises it will be gone by Spring. No self awareness or shame whatsoever. 

And what really pisses me off is never once do you here certain supporters of his on here ever make reference to any of his broken promises - on this or any other issue. instead they treat it as cast iron evidence that he is doing well, until the moment passes and it turns out not to be true and then it's ignored or classed as hindsight.
