    At this rate this thing is going to go on forever - quite depressing news. I am the eternal optimist and on the first covid thread on here I correctly predicted a quick vaccine would be produced given what was at stake when the general opinion was that a vaccine would take 5 - 10 years to become available.

    Now though my optimism is becoming a little weaker. I assumed this virus could just as easily mutate to a less problematic variant but the opposite has been the case. I am sure a modified vaccine will become available for this one too but thanks to the unvaccinated this virus will continue to be given the opportunity to produce new variants until at some point there will be no vaccine to combat it. Then we are really goosed.
    Fears are growing about the new Botswana Covid-19 variant which experts believe is the most mutated version of the virus to date.

      No real point in asking the question but - would you book anything for Easter in the current environment and this South African craic on the horizon?

        Well I have really had enough now and I'm fairly sure that I'm not going for a booster every 6 months.
        In fact I'm not going for any more covid Jabs regardless.

        Are you guys going to keep getting a booster every few months?

        The vaccine isnt working.
        Yesterday I read that the hospital situation is STEADY, today the journal says the system is falling apart.

        it's a f##cking joke.


        Between 2019 and 2020 there was an extra 600 deaths. 600.
        More people have died by suicide every year for the past decade.
        We didnt close the country.


        Get over it, we need to move on, its here to stay etc

          I'm no pandemic specialist for sure - but does the latter not perhaps cast doubt on the former ?

            Both facts are correct so no.

              Try to calculate how many have not died and are not dying because there is a vaccine.

              I am getting a bit annoyed with the whole thing too. Maybe for different reasons. Not pointing the finger at any one individual, the constant complaining that it is a joke, sticking it to Tony, the govt, whoever, is just annoying. It's a Pandemic, we have never had to deal with it in living memory, no-one knows exactly what is next. Bit of objective thinking please.

                  So they call the new variant Omicron.
                  I like it. At least it gives me something to relate too.

                    Yeah thats the thing.
                    Yes its annoying to wear a mask, yes the gov. (of whichever nation) is doing the "wrong" thing, yes this that, just flipping man up and take it.
                    Its no use sitting and crying, going on protests etc etc. it's not going to go away because we want it to.

                                We could raise way more every than that every year by simply defunding RTE and letting the TG4 lads run public service broadcasting.
