1. I hate seeing this...

my daughter lives in England and she told me she won't be eligible for the vaccine until the summer.

4. That's another reason why we have to move faster

to get everyone vaccinated. Team tRump has pushed the process to the individual states when we need a Federal response. We are screwed as far as Covid goes until Jan 20th. tRump is doing NOTHING but golfing and inciting violence. I HATE him. He fucked this up more than Boris.

5. trump is despicable....

the fact he wouldn't wear a mask as an example to his idiot followers is criminal. An added benefit if he wore a mask we would be spared from seeing his ugly face.

6. Roughly 60%

https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/healthandsocialcare/conditionsanddiseases/bulletins/coronaviruscovid19infectionsurveypilot/8january2021#the-percentage-of-those-testing-positive-who-are-compatible-for-the-new-uk-variant

They don't give a single figure for the whole of the UK, but the England graph is the closest to that, being over 80% of the UK population. In London, one of the earliest regions to suffer from the new strain, it's about 80%.

Those figures are approximate, and come with caveats. The Office for National Statistics is doing random sampling of people each week so their results include asymptomatic people too, but are statistical rather than the precise count of cases, hospitalizations or deaths.
