The #Omicron variant doesn’t mean other #Covid19 strains have gone away. Read and weep

Covid-19: some readers have complained about This Site’s use of a graphic. It’s the one I used at the start and I’m going to carry on using it!

Isn’t it handy that the Tories can distract us all with fears about a new variant of Covid-19?

Isn’t it weird that reporting of Covid-19 generally seems to have fallen off?

But isn’t it also handy that we have people who can provide us with the juice that they’re trying to hide?

So come on, Boris Johnson! On your feet, Sajid Javid!

We want to know why the UK has had two and a half times as many Covid-19 infections as the most heavily-infected European country since your “Freedom Day” farce.

And we’re particularly keen to hear your explanation of why we have had to suffer around double the number of deaths seen in our most terminal neighbours.

(That’s according to Tory government figures which are wrong, mind. The Tories want you to think 145,140 people have died. More accurate ONS data suggests nearly 170,000 people have died. This Writer tends to think even this is a conservative estimate.)

Scientific information suggests the symptoms of Omicron are mild – headaches and tiredness. If that’s true, then I’m not fantastically worried!

Like most of the population, I don’t really want to know about a disease that will make me feel a bit drowsy and headachey. I want to know about the disease that’s likely to kill me.

What really gets my goat is having the facts withheld from me.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
