"Ms Quinn had previously said on social media that she did not consent to or accept the fines."

I didn't know it worked like that, I feel so silly.

I think Ms Quinn needs to stop believing what she reads on Facebook.

A year in the hole had taken its toll
When I took a good look at me
And what a surprise
The scope of my eyes could only see black
And I remember someone who was taking them two by two
And lately I'd become the one who'd have laughed at you too!

During the early days of Covid, what made me laugh was all the 'doctors/medical experts' recording videos on Youtube and sharing them on Facebook basically trying to poo poo the proper experts.

I presume it is like Googling your medical symptoms - headache or imminent death.

Some of the bbc reporting of the India travel ban:

Quote
Kiran and Saumiya Philip travelled to Kerala in March to get married, but once the wedding was over they realised India's Covid cases were rising rapidly and they started looking for earlier flights back.

"I've been trying to get back to the UK since 12 April but there aren't any tickets available," says Kiran. "You get the odd one now and then, but the cost is upwards of £1,200 to travel from Kochi one way."

Are you allowed to fly places during national lockdown to get married?  Hmmm

The only time the word racism is used is in the title. There might be questions to be asked about the difference in uptake from black people, and I think a few are hinted at (black churches not engaged about promoting vaccines), but ultimately that's a dogshit article designed for outrage and clicks (obvious i know, but it seems reasonable to hammer home)

Yep.

I was reading through it myself wondering where the 'racism' aspect came into it.

More click-baitery from the Beeb. Bloody leftist bias.

It does seem generalised. Everyone who hasn't had the jab will have some reason I guess.

I guess they are implying racism in the past has bred a distrust of the government now. Which is affecting vaccine take-up.

But you know that, and yes it's a bit click baity

Worrying information from Seychelles on vaccinations not preventing resurgence of infection, especially in light of the govt's apparent determination to ignore scientists' warnings about dangers of sticking to the timetable for opening up in the face of the prevalence of the Indian variant in the UK. The govt may be right to ignore those warnings, I'm not qualified to say, but the experience of last summer, September and December doesn't inspire confidence. Hope they're right this time.

TBC, I want us to be able to open up properly as soon as we can. I don't want to see a repeat of the "Open up, lots of illness/deaths, impose restrictions again for even longer" cycle that's characterised this so far.

53% of the Seychelles have be vaccinated with Sinopharm, the Chinese vaccine of which there has been a lot doubts about how effective it really is. 80% of the those needing hospital treatment havenít had any vaccine so if anything supports the argument that the vaccine breaks the link between cases and hospital numbers & deaths.

Most COVID wards here are now empty, the schools reopening didnít cause a spike, nor did opening non-essential retail so. I canít see how sticking to the 5 weekly interval can be interpreted as rushing...  with all this in mind donít we deserve the chance to now have as close to a normal life as possible?!

Iíve noticed a swell of Ďzerocovidí nuts now who want to stay locked down and in restrictions until there are no more cases, never going to happen so they are going to have a fun life...

Yes of course. And I hope you're right. As I say I want us to be able to open up properly as soon as possible. I'm concerned by the number of scientists who seem to be expressing alarm that insufficient attention is being paid to the Indian variant. Hopefully they're erring on the side of caution and/or govt have plans in place to suppress these outbreaks. The concern appears to be that relying on vaccines alone runs the risk of allowing further variants to develop and spread that may prove to be vaccine resistant.
