Thanks for the links Ann in particular the article that explains the much used term "herd immunity." This government, abetted by the MSM, is once again showing itself to be utterly disgraceful. In fact dispassionate to the point of being lethal.

This is an excellent coronavirus article from James Kelly with an embedded article well worth reading too.


Thank you for this Petra.  I have copied the embedded article to my own reference library.  As you say it is very good.  I posted a digest of the actual WHO report the other day but this gives much more practical information.

Thank you for the links, Ann.  Posted a few on my Facebook page.

Here is one for possible inclusion tomorrow if you have not already found it.  Johnson and the Nudge Theory approach to pandemic management


Thank you Legerwood.  I have been falling over references to the nudge theory all day and was going to look it up.  This is exactly what I needed.  It certainly makes what is happening a lot clearer doesn’t it?  I agree with your suggestion and have added it to tomorrow’s list 

Glad I could help even in a small way.  I think people and organisations are just going to take matters into their own hands - self isolation or greatly reducing contacts and cancellation of events eg football because they realise they are not going to get any leadership or clarity from the Westminster Gov and its acolytes
