I must say the new colour coding system to show where the country stands in the fight against the virus is very clear.
We could have done with this a few weeks ago.

Where did that come from? I don’t like that the vulnerable can’t leave home at all until a vaccine is available. I shall be sneaking out before then!

Yes that ghastly Nfk! God knows when and if an effective vaccine will be found!

Unfortunately whatever the PM (or any President/Government representative in any country in the world) announces, the virus is not going anywhere. The vulnerable ones in society shall continue to be vulnerable to Covid just as they are to influenza, Winter Vomiting Bug etc.

If they do develop a credible and effective vaccine for this strain/s, the chances are that next year it will mutate and therefore another vaccine shall be needed (like the flu vaccine some of us have each year the WHO and advisers decide what they think the strain will be for each year )

Stay Alert to me means a gradual return to life but constantly being aware of your own health and risk assessment of shops/situations.

Shouldn't that green, column on the right have been labelled REmission of virus, not mission? I'd have thought the mission statement of a virus would be to "get 'em all, as fast as possible"

The top of that colour coding chart has been cut off. It actually reads for No. 5 , the green column, "No Transmission of Virus"

If you're in the category being shielded NfkDumpling, you know what the risk is, no matter what arbitrary rules the government devises.

Let’s hope the R number continues to decrease in the coming weeks but the Covidiots socialising this weekend make that unlikely.
