What a relief, no deaths on a Friday for the first time since September 11th 2020

There’s so much more to be said about today’s Covid figure’s but the Herald offers you that?

Have you been usefully informed? How do you feel? Still anxious? Feel like tasking out a subscription?

Often we see no Covid deaths on a Sunday or a Monday because registration offices are shut on Saturdays and Sundays but no deaths reported on a Saturday means there were no deaths on a day when they were open.

That’s the best news we’ve had for some time and the Herald misses it.

400 new cases? Sounds a lot. Is it? Well it’s down on the previous day (414) and the 7 day average (419) is down on that last week (539) and the week before (561). Should they be told?

Look at that map! No deaths anywhere in the last 24 hours. There were 16 in England and Wales.

Not in the public interest?

  1. The nature of news media is to sensationalise the mundane, especially media source that support right-wing populism. Which thrives by generating a cultural environment of fear and anxiety. ‘Our’ Scottish themed media has the added interests of sustaining British nationalism by promoting a culture of learned helplessness. Saying that, fear and anxiety over covid-19 is not entirely a bad thing, as the only way we can expect to get past the pandemic in good order, is by taking the risk it presents seriously. Though good news is always welcome, and helps to counter distress and depression. So it’s not likely to be shouted about in the Scottish themed news media, particularly outlets that lean to the right and support British nationalism, such as the Herod.

  2. Deaths have to be registered within five days. No deaths from previous days. With underlying symptoms. There have been 400 new cases.

    The most vulnerable have been vaccinated. Essential workers, with contact, have been vaccinated. People can see there loved ones and gradually get back to a better life. Still social distancing where essential. Following the guidelines. Until everyone at risk has been vaccinated and given the jab. Quite soon. The end of April things are opening up further.

  3. September 11 2001. The twin towers came down. Saudi Arabia. Started a chain that led to millions of deaths. Westminster criminals still selling illegal weapons to Saudi. A failing State. They have been responsible for killing millions and imprisoned their own people. Especially women and children with no rights.

    Killing people with impunity, with British redundant weaponry. Against International Law. The catastrophe in Yemen. Causing poverty, starving and killing people. The Saudi support Israeli aggression and iSIS, They funded them. To support their patriarchal society and failing economy.

    Westminster illegally selling redundant weaponry. Worldwide. Against International Law and keeping it secret under the Official Secrets Act. For illegal bribes and donations to Royalty and political Parties.

    The Saudis spend $65Billion on the military, a year. Pop 33million (11million migrants). The highest spend on the military (pro rata). After the US, The highest in the world. 1/3 of all world spend. $740Billion. The US Gov will not provide an essential national health system but bombs the world to bits. Total hypocrites,

    16,000 people a year are murdered in the US a year. Including 11,000 by gun crime. 19,000 gun related suicides. 35,000. 320Million pop. 500 people murder in the UK. 66million people. 200 people a year killed in London S/E by knife crime.

    Since austerity began. Support systems were taken away. Welfare and essential services cut. Welfare cut £16Billion. From 2015 to 2020. The Tories have caused thousands of deaths. Vote Tory to die younger. The Scottish Gov had to mitigate the cuts.

    Iraq, Dunblane and Lockerbie kept secret for 100 years. The culprits can never be brought to justice.
