We'll find out soon enough. There are plenty of idiots out there who are going to drag the country back down into the next wave. Hopefully it will not be as lethal as the first and our incompetent politicians will have learned their lessons.

I live near Batley and can tell you that those of different cultures and heritage have a different view of the rules, especially if they impinge on the activities of those cultures.

I live down the road from Batley Grammar, drove past and there was a ridiculous crowd outside! It's just been business as usual in Batley all throughout this coronavirus!

Aye, the police were quick enough to arrest nurses and women. Funny how theres never a similar response to our muslim friends kicking off about percieved insults to their imaginary friend! Oh no! What have I said, thats a jihad on me now too!
We dont need their brand of stupdity alongside everything else going on.
Ever heard... when in Rome? If you dont like it the airpirts are still open!

I'm 56. I haven't had the jab . Here's why.... .
I'm still undecided .I haven't finished researching it yet . When I have researched enough I will draw a conclusion and decide whether I have it or not. That's because I am capable of thinking for myself . I will not be forced into it by 'virtuous' people..
I am sick of people judging my decision

There's only one way to treat the illegal appropriation of vaccine in a pandemic by a state actor and that's as a war act.

The response needs to be robust.

If there’s a third wave then it’s a global failure. There’s a vaccine that can almost make this illness on par with a 3 day sickness bug, but it seems the whole world is hell bent on screwing everyone else over. I guess we all need better leadership

Maybe it's time to be a bit more positive
Giving people some hope that they might actually get their lives back sometime soon wouldn't be a bad thing
All this negativity all the time is so draining

At a time when companies are being forced to downsize, does the BBC really need 9 Health correspondents. This article suggests not, most of it will be recycled in articles by Hugh Grim, Fergus, Tulip, Sophie Hutchinson, Dominic Hughes, Jane Dreaper, Adam Brimlow or Lauren Moss.

No perspective here is there.125,000 out of 60 million.Just over a hundred years ago this many young men were being killed every few weeks on the Western front.Most deaths have been the very,very old and those who have abused their bodies for years anyhow hence the connection with covid and underlying health problems.

How many time your lot needs to be told that it is "just" 127,000

BECAUSE WE TOOK MEASURES?

And also because the NHS was not overwhelmed and was able to save many???

How intellectually challenging this is???

Again, how intellectually challenging this is???

EU took ages to clear the AZ jab for use, didn't get it's act together fast enough, some countries didn't want to give it to over 55's, panicked about 37 blood clot cases in 17 million doses. Generally dithered about, while we got on with vaccinating . Macron said it was Quasi ineffective,Now EU folks are not confident with AZ, but they haven't any others either.The latest? it's all AZ's fault.

Why fear it? And being as this is a global issue, most other countries will have the same problems, so where is that cheap foreign labour going to come from?

If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever. That future is now. Snowflakes and virtue signallers have allowed a totalitarian state to develop, using a very mild virus as a pitiful excuse. There is still time to overthrow this evil, but the mass riots, civil disobedience and assassination of politicians needs to start as soon as possible. Removed

The graph of 5 to 15 year olds is misleading. T he ere has been a small increase (as always expected when schools went back) but the graph should show November to now, which would show the increase is minor (as well as expected- in fact the expectation was a larger increase). Misleading scale.

The issue for the world, is that as everyone now fully appreciates, any virus mutates. The more the virus spreads the more it mutates. As long as there are countries with high transmission rates, which means virus mutation, it's highly probable that Covid19 will develop mutations against which the current vaccines are not fully effective. Unfortunately we can't yet afford to think this war is won.

It's certainly the most brutal in Europe despite our vaccine success.
Perhaps you were fortunate enough to be in a region where bars and restaurants etc were open until Christmas ? Some people have been in lockdown, or something close to it, for a year. It's brutal.
Oh grow up....you've never had it so good ffs...you need to learn to adapt and cope instead of dreaming of a return to the dysfunction. Removed
