Covid UK: Is the end of the pandemic in sight? – BBC Newsnight


Coronavirus infections in the UK are back to levels seen at the end of summer 2020 with around one in 1,000 people infected, ONS data suggests. Please subscribe HERE

In the week to 24 April, infections fell in all four nations of the UK and were 20 times lower than in January.

It comes as a new UK study has found very small numbers of people have been admitted to hospital with Covid several weeks after having one vaccine dose.

More than half of the UK population has now received a first vaccine jab.

Meanwhile, BBC analysis shows about 22 million people are now living in areas where there were no Covid deaths in April.

  1. I need to say this. I am struggling badly with my mental health because of this damn pandemic. I'm from the uk and Boris Johnson has made mistake after mistake. He let idiots in from India, and whereas life would be back to normal in the UK now, it's all been ruined by the delta variant, brought by the idiots from India, and covid is escalating again, and all the morons in the government are acting as if it's still low, simply because deaths are still low. My mother is not helping, she's saying things like "I don't think the pandemic will ever end" and similar comments. I am 21, and want to sort out my life, after spending 7 years wasting it.
    I really hope that by Summer 2022 we are in a better position in the UK. I think US and some others will get there by late 2021, the uk and other richer countries by Summer 2022, and the poorer countries by late 2022.
    If the world isn't in a better position by June 30 2022 I am seriously ending my life.

    Sorry to say all this, I'm just in a dark place right now.

    Open Letter To The 45th President Of The United States Of America Donald J Trump


    God Bless You Donald Trump and give you the courage, strength and wisdom, to be on the right side of destiny, to be the greatest president the USA has ever had!!
    Sir you have achieved more in your 1st term in office than all the previous presidents combined.
    Once people realise and really wake up, and see your hand in the down fall of the cabal, the global elites, the corrupt bankers, mainstream media,politicians, the various royal families in the world and their insatiable thirst for adrenochrome and other nefarious activities.
    To gain the fountain of youth they have needlessly enslaved young children and trafficked them like disposable goods. All In the pursuit of their own insatiable greed & vanity, they have sacrificed their humanity and are pure evil and satanic to the core.
    Once people realise your great military war against the deep state, and all the 5 million children that you have rescued from dumbs (deep underground military bases). You will become a national & international hero.
    Posterity will confirm and history will record. That You Sir, will be remembered as the Greatest President of The USA. Who has actually given the power back to the people, aswell as their liberty & freedoms. May the sun always shine, on the glorious New Republic, that you have newly created, once the US goes back to constitutional law and away from corrupt marine law.
    Most importantly though Sir you will be remembered as the greatest peace maker and humanitarian.
    I can only reiterate that Donald you are an amazing man and inspirational in your vision. I can only wish you a very long live, aswell as your incredible family.
    God bless the USA and the rest of the world.

  3. All of the phases we've currently gone through in this pandemic were easily predictable by looking at the past, and in general how new diseases behave. That has never changed, and neither has the advice. The people who say 'the politicians keep making it up', well, you're partly right. They have lied and misled. But the simple fact is the core advice from public health has never changed, and never been all that surprising or secret for human behaviouralists, epidemiologists and anyone who's done proper research. So this idea that hesitancy and variants are all new excuses is superficial, objectively incorrect and really just shows you dont understand infectious disease. The simple fact is the pandemic will end. Pandemics ALWAYS end. Their apparent mutation rate increases as immunity goes up. That's because its far harder for old variants to continue spreading. But it's actually a positive sign that the virus is coughing and dying out, not growing stronger. To date, no pandemic in history has ever been fully revived by a totally evasive new variant within a year, so this rhetoric of we'll all be dying again next year is also objectively wrong. The end date for the UK will ultimately be between July and January. And that will be dictated by 3 things: uptake of vaccines, international travel and how the rules are eased. Cases will be higher for longer if the balance isnt right, as put simply, 1 in 50 people having Covid is easily repeatable now. Only 30 in 50 have had any vaccine and only 5 in 50 have had the infection. The good news is, it's not going to be as severe, long or drawn out as people think, while 35 in 50 have some form of immunity, that means its 4 times as hard for the virus to spread, as its an exponential curve, immunity is going up everyday, the old variants are dying out. It is also 1000 times harder for the virus to kill people. The deaths are almost eliminated, and provided the vaccines keep going at the same rate until july, along with a sensible suppression of cases, there will be no public health advice to stay closed, which is currently the only thing holding Boris Johnson and Nicola Sturgeon back. Trust me, anyone who's heard either of them speak can see that. How we behave in that interim will affect how many people die this year, not how many variants we have, there will be little overall effect on that according to the evidence base, and little overall effect on our freedoms moving foward into the end of 2021. Being complacent however, will stagnate progress and prolong the suppression. Thank you for coming to my TED talk.

  4. if it is like this
    Streptococcus pneumoniae vaccine polysaccharide-based
    Combine computer simulation design, strains, drugs and elements to develop a mixed vaccine to treat the new crown

  5. Hmm.. the resemblence to the seasonal flu is uncanny, only difference is its fuelled by propaganda.

  6. Yeah right, government is rushing to open what about rapid growing of Indian variant in the uk, are the government turning a blind eye, hope they will control this before going out of control and people need to know pandemic is not over yet until every single country in the world free of COVID

  7. ¿Necesita cura para enfermedades mortales como el VIH / SIDA HERPES HEPATITIS B VIRUS y Ex back Contacte al Dr. ahora a través de su número de WhatsApp +33635896938

  8. Covid is the seasonal flu ..weaponised by the MSM and corrupt politicians. Anybody that believes its anything real sorry but you have been conned . Bring on the hyperinflation and economic collapse..all planned for . You will own nothing , and not be happy .

  9. It is known that many medical devices, including swabs for testing the virus, are routinely sterilized using a substance that is very dangerous to human health, namely Ethylene Oxide, also used for other medical devices. The usual fact.checkers, always ready to deny any news that hinders or damages the established powers, argue that there is nothing dangerous in such use, although it has long been proven that this substance is actually carcinogenic. The process for removing ethylene residues is rather laborious and it is not at all sure that this purification will be completely successful, or that it is even adopted with certainty before their use. There are even reports that tampons are boxed even at a family level in precarious hygienic conditions to say the least. However, it is certain that the "Ramazzini" Research Center of Bologna, an institute of proven seriousness and scientific competence, mainly in the field of tumor processes, has clearly stated that ethylene, used for the sterilization of swabs, can be risky not only for the onset of cancer, but also under other profiles, so much so that it is recommended to reduce exposure to these compounds as much as possible and replace it with less toxic products (Eur. J. Oncol., 15 (1) , 5-23, 2010).
    In the face of such evidence, it is not justifiable that, on a world scale, countless swabs are still carried out every day, even knowing that their sterilization took place with ethylene oxide, in such a way as to endanger the health of those tested, especially if subjected to this practice several times, as now actually happens.

  10. imagine believing can stop a virus with months-long lockdowns when there existing all kind of people with different needs even them who wants to spread this type of things on purpose.
    Especially more now when peoples live getting ruined is the country responsibility to stop it before gets into the country if they don't then it is too late the world has failed to stop the virus at the source and lockdown insanity just gonna end up do more harm then good.

  11. Are you in need of cure to deadly disease such as HIV / AIDS HERPES HEPATITIS B VIRUS Contact Dr. now his WhatsApp number +33750146216

  12. They can turn the number of 'cases' up and down at will – the more amplifications you do with the PCR test, the more positives you get. The PCR test is unfit for purpose AND THEY KNOW THAT. THAT'S WHY THEY ARE USING IT.

  13. one form of what e call "common cold" is a coronavirus. Now tells us again, the definition of "end"? And tell the OED while you're at it.

  14. ❌⭕❌⭕❌⭕❌⭕❌⭕❌⭕
    Russia has become the first country in the world to perform an autopsy (post-mortem) for a Covid-19 corpse. After a thorough investigation, it was discovered that Covid-19 does not exist as a virus, but rather a bacterium that has been exposed to radiation and causes human death by coagulation in the blood.
    Covid-19 disease has been found to cause blood clotting, which causes blood clotting in humans and causes blood clotting in the veins, which makes it difficult for a person to breathe because the brain, heart and lungs cannot receive oxygen, causing people to die quickly.

    To find the cause of the shortage of respiratory energy, doctors in Russia did not listen to the WHO protocol and performed an autopsy on COVID-19. After doctors opened arms, legs, and other parts of the body and carefully examined them, they noticed that the blood vessels were dilated and filled with blood clots, which impeded blood flow and also reduced the flow of oxygen. In the body it causes the death of the patient. After learning about this research, the Russian Ministry of Health immediately changed the treatment protocol for Covid-19 and gave aspirin to its positive patients. I started taking 100 mg and Imromac. As a result, patients began to recover and their health began to improve. The Russian Ministry of Health evacuated more than 14,000 patients in one day and sent them home.
    After a period of scientific discovery, doctors in Russia explained the treatment method by saying that the disease is a global trick, “It is nothing but a coagulation inside blood vessels (blood clots) and a method of treatment.
    Antibiotic tablets
    Anti-inflammatory and
    Take an anticoagulant (aspirin).
    This indicates that it is possible to treat the disease.
    According to other Russian scientists, ventilators and an intensive care unit (ICU) were never needed. Protocols for this effect have already been published in Russia.
    China already knows this, but it has never released its report.
    Share this information with your family, neighbors, acquaintances, friends and colleagues so that they can get rid of the fear of Covid-19 and realize that this is not a virus, but a bacterium that has only been exposed to radiation. Only people with very low immunity should be careful. This radiation also causes inflammation and hypoxia. Victims should take Asprin-100mg and Apronik or Paracetamol 650mg.

  15. Why listen to the BBC bunch of scaremongering liars who are following the government narrative. They only want bad news regarding covid. At the moment if you have had both vaccines you have a 1 in 150000 chance of getting covid and if you do become a case you hve a 98.5 % survival rate.

  16. The end of the tunnel will be when the entire mainstream media is taken down. THEY ARE ALL IN THE DEEP STATE.

  17. The PCR test is bogus. The more amplifications you do, the more positives you get. So the authorities can turn the number of cases up and down at will. The inventor of the test, Kary Mullis, said it was not supposed to be used to diagnose infectious disease.

  18. कुछ कोरोना से मरेंगे,

    कुछ भूख से, कुछ नफरत से,

    कुछ बिन इलाज मरेंगे

    जो बच जाएंगे वे कर्ज से मर जायेंगे
