Its important to note that the positive case statistics remain an estimate only.

Based on the small data set the method used to extrapolate the numbers could just as easily be over inflating the reality, as is recorded world wide since the first covid outbreak  happened.

Be positive, practice healthy living.

Healthy living may limit your chances of getting Covid but it is no guarantee.

Two new strains of Covid have been designated, the UK Health and Security Agency (UKHSA) has said.

The strains, labelled BQ.1 and XBB, are Omicron variants, have not been designated as variants of concern, meaning they are not thought to be at particular risk of accelerating the spread of the illness.

However, studies being conducted at the University of Oxford on behalf of the UKHSA showed "significant reductions" in "neutralisation against several of the newly emergent variants".

This could lead to waning immunity among the population, which could in turn "fuel future waves of SARS-CoV-2 infection," the agency said in a statement to ITV News,

Rising non-Covid excess deaths reveal the disastrous legacy of the pandemic

When Britain first locked down on March 23 2020, the average daily death rate from Covid was around 213, triggering understandable alarm and the ushering in of strict restrictions.

Now, a similar number of unexpected deaths are occurring each day, the majority of which are not primarily caused by coronavirus.

Yet there is largely silence from the Government and health service.

Excess deaths soar to levels higher than during Covid pandemic

Excess deaths in England and Wales are currently running higher than in the main pandemic years of 2020 and 2021, figures have shown.

Throughout October, there have been an average of 1,564 extra deaths per week, compared with a weekly average of just 315 in 2020 and 1,322 in 2021.

Latest figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) showed that in the week ending Oct 21, there were 1,714 excess deaths in England and Wales, of which only 469 were due to Covid - just 27 per cent of the total.

Thus vaccines and treatments are having an effect.
