Weekend – UK U-turns into severe lockdown for London and SE. I can’t find the words to understand the last minute “escape from London” mentality – as folk try and beat the deadline.
Numbers from The Seattle Times again – format changed up a little.
Friday – UK looks to be in the grip of a more transmissible mutation. Rt increases. Hoping the vaccines still effective – but runaway cases.
Thursday – Oh UK – your cases and hospitalisation is picking up again. From The Guardian.
Wednesday – UK reporting COVID mutation, with unknown results against the various vaccines. WA changes guidance on school re-opening – perhaps January/February?
Tuesday – NHS under extreme pressure. UK cases pick up again, after peaking and declining. First vaccines in Seattle given at UW. This certainly feels like the end of the beginning.
Monday – first vaccines have been given in the US. It’ll be a year and more to vaccinate the US or the UK. Sandra Lindsay will be the answer to a trivia question in the future.
