So Jim Wells is waiting on an ethical vaccine that’s never be used/tested/researched on an aborted baby

He said that he was waiting on Curevac, but it isn't clear that it was tested differently from other ones.

Poots has told people being influenced by coronavirus vaccine conspiracy theories to "catch themselves on".

Agriculture Minister Edwin Poots expressed concern that some people were choosing not to get a jab because they believed "nonsense" on social media.

I'm not an admirer in general, but he is on target on this issue and he might convince a few.

Quite enjoyed the 1st episode but thought the 2nd drifted off into same old clichéd territory and as someone else said what's the story with the fecking beards...

Lets imagine this is a factory.

There are always problems, defects , failures. How to you improve throughput and reduce waste, you improve detection, reduce severity and reduce occurence. We have done that with vacinnes and track trace etc.

Then you have to look at bottlenecks-ICU.

Improve capacity-more beds, more staff.

Then we have no crisis until the next one. Then we start again

But it is not a factory

They cannot even get enough lorry drivers to make deliveries, so they can hardly conuure up appropriate ICU staff just like that.

It’s a lot worse here than across the water, waiting lists much worse in 6 counties. Badly managed & our feckless politicians haven’t helped

Back 15 years ago or so, the devolved administration made a reasonable effort on the health side of things, things have slipped badly.
In the South things are not good, but there is a fair amount of publicity about A&E and so on, and things have improved a bit. In the North the media doesn't seem to have mapped the decline.

No I don’t think so. My guess is that you’ve decided to follow such a narrative and will actively seek out any data, sensechecked or not, to prove yourself right to yourself.

It’s an awful shame that people can’t die of old anymore.

Excess deaths is the appropriate measure and there were excess deaths during the pandemic, with high rates back last APril in some countries, others had a later peak. This does make sense as it filters out those who would have died anyhow.

Huge swathes of people (across the divide) in NI don't give a flying f**k about Covid. It's embarrassing, & sad that pigheadedness will be the end of a lot of people.

You have cases like this
these were home helps and they could have brought down some elderly people with them.

People like to be a bit thran, probably including myself, but this is entirely the wrong issue to make a stand on. It can literally be life or death.

I've lost faith in Covid death stats, I personally know of 4 people who have died in the past 3 weeks, 2 x Cancer, 1 x Alzhemiers and 1x (very) old age who've all went down as Covid stats and it was no more Covid that killed them.

Perhaps 1% of people have Covid at any one time, maybe 3% in a month, and so you would expect perhaps 30-40 people to die each month with Covid, who perhaps were not killed by it. However, the rate in NI is that number of deaths each week because the likes of that DUP guy and other people in their 30s and 40s are dying.
As the Covid rate falls the stats become increasingly hard to follow, but I think NI is still above that level. Probably few enough are dying of Covid in the South.

I've been watching the stats lately wondering why NI was having regular reports of daily single figure deaths and there were none from ROI, has it just been a case of them not being widely reported? I downloaded the ROI Covid tracker app to get the EU digi Vaccine Certificate & it gives you the death stats on it - 24 deaths last week.

The ROI has not reported daily figures recently, which is perhaps no harm. Deaths per week have been little more than half in the North, which when you adjust for population it means the North is 4 or 5 times the rate.

You have teams that will likely win an All Ireland
Dublin, Kerry, Tyrone

Teams that should win an All Ireland

Teams that could win an All Ireland with a fair wind
Donegal, Galway, Cork, Meath, Armagh, Monaghan

Teams that should do better
Kildare, Down, Derry

everyone else. 

If you took Dublin out then the Championship would be quite interesting.

A decade is a long time. For instance, it is not impossible that this years minor champions Meath could build a team that could be in contention at the end of the decade. If Dublin fall back a bit and the likes of Meath can see a good prospect of winning Leinster then they could come back into the top 4 teams. In 1990, would someone have predicted that 10 years later there wouldn't be much between Kerry, Galway and Armagh.
