    • Just to echo Pete M, there's a lot more impact related to Covid besides deaths. Long term side effects can be crippling, hospitals being full with cases impacts everyone else that needs to go to the hospital (A big reason to get boosted/get the vax), healthcare workers have been getting destroyed the last two years, etc. Hard to really quantify all this but it's a lot more than just looking at the death numbers
    • I guess, we don’t know what ‘covid only’ on the death certificate really means. It could be that a large number could have pneumonia listed alongside covid (for example)? The only other thing I would say is how many people have an underlying health issue that they don’t know about?    I'm not really adding anything here other than these stats might not be ultra reliable.   But certainly they point towards health being massively significant, which is why I would be on a vaccine side (as a sort of healthy person) as it decreases transmission to those at higher risk without putting me at increased risk. (Sorry vax chat) 
    • It's going to be very interesting to see what the history books say about Covid in 20 years for sure!
    • If 6000 was highly accurate, then yes I might feel as though it's not quite as severe as initially suggested. There's so many variables, it's hard to trust any figure. And again, I suspect there are more people with long term side effects than we realise. Another thing that's impossible to quantify. There's a good amount of research going into the long term effects, so there must be a reason for that. (Haven't personally read this research, but a family member keeps an eye on it)
    • I think if our extension hadn't happened during the first lockdown it still wouldn't be decorated now! Enjoy!
