Looks like it started earlier than we thought and is going to have a longer lasting effect:

“ Cod Almighty add: Our thanks to Gavin, and to Pitch Publishing for permission to publish this extract from Because it's Saturday: a journey into football's heartlands. Through the 2018-29 season, Gavin met players, officials and supporters from seven different clubs in England and Scotland.”

What’s Covid got to do with that article? PS Total UK deaths from Covid of people without underlying health conditions = 4,500.

Just because somebody has an underlying health issues doesn’t mean they can’t live a long life. This suggestion that “they would have died anyway” is frankly as wrong as it is disgusting. To quantify “healthy deaths” suggests that the lives of those with underlying conditions aren’t as important. It dehumanises the most vulnerable in our society.

Average age of people who have died of it allegedly is 82.

Absolutely spot on Golly. Sick of hearing the "but these people had underlying health conditions" as though it makes it almost matter of fact.

Key word, allegedly.

It's not just about the deaths.  It's about the enormous strain it puts on the already stretched health system.  That has a knock-on.

You are conflating two separate comments.

It's all very worrying if I'm honest - my daughters just tested positive for covid who's 18 and lives with us - I'm in the clinically extremely vulnerable list because I have rheumatoid arthritis and with the medication I'm on basically I have no immune system - I'm afraid it's fingers crossed time and hope for the best UTM!

There are currently 15,000 people in hospital with COVID and of those  1,500 are on ventilators.  
NHS has 1,500,000 staff.

The receptionists, security guards and consultant’s PAs don’t deal with Covid patients though do they?

The extract from the article which I quoted originally said season 2018-29 had been curtailed by Covid. The sneaky leftist buggers have corrected it.

PS I object to this being moved to the non-football board. It was about football (being stopped).

I never suggested they did.  I merely pointed out that an organisation that exists solely for health reasons has 1.5 million staff and has apparently been brought to its knees by 15,000 patients.

Not everyone who works at a council empties the bins and you wouldn’t blame the planning permission office if they didn’t empty your bins.

I have no idea what that means. The NHS has only one job-the health of the nation. Surely they expect an increase in hospital admissions around now as it happens every year.
