Nice one TP, although I admit it took me a few hours to get it.

Yes, it is a thread which continues bsp (started 3 Jan), so it will obviously refer to its forebear. It would not surprise me if other threads about similar subjects move to here when they are full.

Yes, as I said some time ago, finding the correct numbers of Covid-19 deaths is fraught with difficulty. As different countries define the deaths in different ways, inter-country comparisons are meaningless. But a flawed counting system will still give that country some idea of how it is doing.
As regards the UK; the patient catches asymptomatic Covid-19 on day one. (S)he tests positive on day three. Recovers, with a negative test, on day 24. Hit by a bus on day 26. A covid death, right?
There will be many reasons why the UK deaths will be undercounted. Eg patient at home dies with no time for a test. Where we really are, God knows. But other countries are doubtless saying the same.

It may have been a few months ago, but I remember someone on here claimed to have had it (described as very unpleasant, worse than flu).

The CDC is entitled to its opinion, but (with arguing scientists) we do not really know yet whether someone vaccinated can transmit the disease. This is another consequence of approval being so rushed.

Physical virus transfer may be part of an infection chain, but Covid-19 is not contagious. Unlike (for example) leprosy, it cannot be transmitted by simply touching an infected person.

I agree. Masks and vaccination have nothing to do with each other in terms of direct interaction. All they have in common is that they (help to) prevent disease. So I'm going for both.

It is interesting that Boris (having had the disease) is still wearing a mask. So, either: he believes that it is possible to be infected twice; or that one can have had the disease and yet still be infectious to others. If so, he appears to be following SAGE concerns after all.

Some time ago (no, don't ask me when or which thread), I gave my own views on what I would have done differently. Well, as we are now: scrap the exercise exemption (although now probably irrelevant); with the olympics in jeopardy, scrap the elite sports exemption; extend test and trace to shops; given that compulsory vaccination is a no-no, at least make testing compulsory; have a central database of linked households (without which, enforcing gathering limits is virtually impossible); most importantly, have proper medical authorisation for mask wearing exemptions (the current system is completely uncontrolled).
