On the first day of Xmas my true love brought to me a lethal virus?


The confident grasp of virology and epidemiology held in almost hostelry in the land never fails to astound. The Kings Arms Fenwick has launched into social media with an appeal to ignore government guidance and just keep on eating and drinking, happy to bray/spray, in crowds from all parts.

Do they not believe profs Sridhar and Bauld? Do they just not like thae smart alecs roon here?

Do they not care about the loss of life. Some things are more important than life?

  1. The head of the UK Health Security Agency, Dr Jenny Harries has just been telling the Transport Committee of the House of Commons that:
    i) the Omicron variant of Covid-19 is “probably the most significant threat we’ve had since the start of the pandemic” – citing its transmissibility as a real cause for concern

    ii) risks putting the NHS in “serious peril” and

    iii) the “numbers that we see on data over the next few days will be quite staggering compared to the rate of growth that we’ve seen in cases for previous variants”.

    Meanwhile, the owners of the Kings Arms Fenwick decide to encourage people in Scotland simply to ignore the public health measures crafted by a democratically elected government acting on best available scientific and medical advice.

    And in the hotel’s message reproduced above, did it really mean to say ‘the food is to die for’?

    If it all wasn’t being so crass and on such a serious issue, you’d just have to laugh!
