There’s a prize for naming that song, that singer but it’s just my undying admiration, Young man!
The Herald today:
A further 76 people have died from Covid-19 in Scotland. Daily figures released by the Scottish Government revealed the death toll has been pushed to 5,704.
Pushed to 5 704, eh? Sounds bad. It is bad but do you think we’ll ever recover from that? What’s the trend?
The Herald treating you like a Bairnwean again.
News for adults below:
The infection rate falls for the 16th day in a row and by nearly 1 000. The mortality rate is higher than it was a week ago. It will fall. I don’t know just when but it will. Pray for them or if you’re an atheist like me, just hope and hope hard. Actually, never mind hoping. Do something. Follow the rules. Tell waverers to stay with it. Destroy the virus with your iron will.
Hospital admissions are still creeping up though ICU numbers are flat. It’s not over by any means but they’re still below National capacity and the vaccination rare is accelerating now the care homes have been largely done.
The 7-day average for vaccinations should of course go up and not down like the others. You knew that.
Zo, the 7 day average for vaccinations, today, is 22 261, up from 10 244 a week ago. More than 100% up. Fantastic!
