Great news on the vaccine for the virus:
…but we’re not done yet, even though a lot of people have been treating things as if we have been done for quite a while now.
Not done yet because:
a) Nelson Mandela Bay metro has run out of Intensive Care beds as the number of infections there continues to rise:
b) And yes, while the situation in the Eastern Cape is clearly a bit out of control, there are worrying little upturns in the Western Cape and KZN graphs as well:
We need to keep an eye on this – things should be dropping consistently at the moment.
c) We’re still learning about the effects of the virus on humans:
This figure is more than double than you would expect to see with influenza infections.
d) There’s “talk” of a return to Level 2 lockdown:
I say “talk”, because that’s from Business Insider and we all know what they’re like and even they state:
Now government officials have confirmed – anonymously – to Bloomberg that tougher restrictions are on the cards again in discussions this week.
Ah. The anonymous source. That old chestnut.
We believe you.
e) This has nothing to do with Covid, but I got bitten on the chin by a stray dog today, while lying in a pool of its urine underneath a Toyota double cab with its engine running in the middle of a fairly busy road in Upper Kenilworth.
I wouldn’t advise any of it.
Tetanus shot and broad spectrum antibiotics. No stitches required – puncture wound only.
Right. Must go and howl at the moon. See you tomorrow.
