NWR new zero tolerance covid thread

Maybe they'll wait until the vaccine can be improved in terms of specificity to the latest strains?
Yes it has been. They started about Jan / Feb I believe and there are a few. Hopefully its approved, purchased and planned for those who need or want it. There was recent talk of a program for over 50s but the government seems busy and preoccupied right now, so let’s see.

If anybody is on holiday in France and wants a jab (in my case a second booster) it is easy to arrange using an app called Doctolib. Took ten minutes to register etc and my jab tomorrow I booked yesterday afternoon.

Odd that France can do something so much better than the U.K.!
 
Those few of you who don't take the FT may not have seen the recent article suggesting that pandemic drinking from home is expected to continue. In the face of recession one is pleased to see that Grange Hermitage is the bottle the FT uses to illustrate the story. This is slightly at odds though with text indicating that the £6-8 a bottle price point remains strong.Screenshot_20220818-121941_FT.jpg

Pretty sure I’ve had covid again on this US trip. Classic symptom of feeling like I’ve got broken glass in my throat but fortunately no other symptoms. What’s irritating though is that my throat remains quite sore 3 weeks later to the point that I can’t drink any alcohol as even the slightest amount leaves a very strong burning sensation. Has anyone else experienced this?

Not me but I heard this a lot from last wave in Taiwan. "Sore like being cut" "Burning" "Can only eat cold and soft food" Maybe the same substrain?
