No, I don't recommend holding your breath either!

For when I registered Dad's death by telephone (as you have to these days), the registrar told me there had been very many other cases like ours where 'the deceased' had not tested positive for Covid, yet it was recorded as the cause of death.
They agreed that, yes, it must distort the national figures — 'and yet the strangest thing is that every winter we record countless deaths from flu, and this winter there have been none. Not one!'
And just like that the rats suddenly started to take an interest in the position and readiness of the lifeboats...
Apparently, the excuse for why the Covid Cult's measures can - apparently - defeat the flu but not the thing they're actually aimed at is because Covid is more contagious than influenza.... except they've spent months telling us that the only reason why Lockdown4Eva hasn't worked is heretics refusing to wear a Boris Burka or indulging in Satanic rituals - like meeting up with friends or sitting on park benches.
Surely there must be some wildly-promiscuous slut out there who jumps from bench to bench, doesn't wear protection and so has died from the flu?
No, not one!
At this point even Third World election results are more reliable than these figures. At least the Supreme Leader of Krapholia has enough sense to only claim to have won 80% of the vote when it's time to vote on making him President For Life.

Like I keep saying, if your theories don't change no matter what the results say, in what sense are you doing science?
Sir Patrick said the Government will keep a set of Covid measures after the country comes out of lockdown and these could include wearing masks in public.
Government scientists have also suggested people may have to follow the 'baseline' measures indefinitely, even after the vaccination roll-out is complete. In a document discussing life after Covid, SAGE said keeping some social distancing measures were 'almost certain to save many lives and minimise the threat to hospital capacity'.

Anyone who runs is a VC. Anyone who stands still is a well-disciplined VC!

Dr Fauci — the US Government's top infectious diseases expert — said that it was 'common sense' that double-masking would be more effective.
He added it was 'likely' to offer better protection against the mutant strain, which studies show partially evades immunity from vaccines and past infections
And Dr Benjamin Killingley, a scientist advising the UK Government in the pandemic, also said wearing two masks was 'common sense'.
But Dr Killingley, a member of the SAGE advisory group, also admitted the claim isn't 'grounded in lots of study'.

In a particularly unhinged moment, for example, the Runnymede Trust race relations lobby group went to the High Court seeking to have [program head Kate Bingham's] appointment declared unlawful on the grounds that giving 'jobs for their mates' breached the Equality Act.

Sometimes, Stuart Ritchie feels like he’s being pursued by an army of smiley faces. The lecturer at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King’s College London, is not delusional: instead, and somewhat to his surprise, he is on the frontline of a coronavirus information war.
I think you can see that the government is indirectly influenced by [lockdown sceptics],” said Sam Bowman, director of competition policy at the International Center for Law and Economics and another of those behind the site...With most of the group on the right – two thirds, Bowman estimates - there is a sense of reputation management, too. “We were both, independently, really aggravated,” said Bowman. “Maybe it’s the narcissism of small differences – seeing people who are also theoretically on the right making such dangerous claims, it’s exasperating.”
“This idea it’s none of an MP’s business – trying to get to the facts of a deadly pandemic is absolutely an MP’s business,” O’Brien said. “You’ve got to look at people’s testable propositions and see how they’ve panned out. That’s how science works.”
It's the ultimate irony of the Church of Covid: they've put on their Boris Burkas and taken off their masks.

Hey, DJ, does the post by any chance include painfully pretentious pseudo-intellectualism and shoehorned in references to ancient history while never actually laying out any actual, specific charges against Donald Trump?

Our findings indicate that such misidentifications are built on particular origin stories that people reach for when asked about their backgrounds. These accounts tend to downplay people’s own, fairly privileged upbringings and instead reach back into working-class extended family histories that incorporate grandparents and even great-grandparents. Here people find stories of the past – of working-class struggle, of upward social mobility, of meritocratic striving – that provide powerful frames for understanding their own experiences and identity.
In our report, we argue that these intergenerational understandings of class origin should be read as having a performative dimension; they deflect attention away from the structural privileges these individuals enjoy, both in their own eyes but also among those they communicate their origin stories to in everyday life. At the same time, by framing their lives as an upward struggle against the odds, these interviewees misrepresent their subsequent life outcomes as more worthy, more deserving and more meritorious.

'Secret payments to public figures to push government policy'?
You say that like it's a bad thing!
Government ministers paid £63,000 to 42 social media 'influencers' to promote the NHS Test and Trace service, it has been revealed.
The ad campaign, launched last year, saw celebrities including Love Island stars Shaughna Phillips and Josh Denzel share messages of support for the health service and its coronavirus testing system on platforms such as Instagram.

Labour today piled more pressure on Boris Johnson to shut down professional football after players flouted Covid-19 rules again and were accused of losing the 'moral case' to continue as infections rise and the NHS struggles to cope.

Eton College reported its dismissed Master to the anti-terrorism Prevent programme for allegedly advocating male supremacy and the glorification of violence.
The elite £42,500-a-year public school reported their concerns to their local authority over teacher Will Knowland's lecture.
School chiefs dismissed Mr Knowland after he refused to take down an online lecture tackling radical feminism and the concept of 'toxic masculinity' from his personal YouTube channel.
