    Ah yes and was then Knighted for his efforts. IIRC it was the same model he (his company) used for both.

        But will it give me special goggles and lead me to wake up next to a woman that it the bright light of day isn't as pretty as she was 10 hours earlier?

          According to DM (lefties do not read!) the Omicron variant is milder than other variants.

          That's a good idea! Maybe we could spread mild variants to provide immunity to more serious Covid versions without any vaccinations!

          Everyone with symptoms, get out there and cough in your friends'/loved ones' faces!

            Nice idea. Pretty? Who cares? As long as she has a huge a*e

              You mean like measles parties?

                  We are generally dealing with less 1% of infections being reinfections. The number is so small, in fact if all we had was reinfections the virus wouldn't be transmitted enough and would die out. So yes people can get infected more than once but it's almost not worth even considering when deciding any policy.

                  Even with omicron the numbers out of South Africa are still less than 3% of reinfections (if I recall the number correctly but it's quite low). Omicron seems to be much more transmissible but it only appears to be evading natural immunity when you compare it to other strains.. when you look at the numbers of reinfections its still very low percentage of total infections.

                    You are Boris Johnson and I claim my £5.

                    Your diagram misses out a few critical points... The anti-vax flat earthers who refuse to get jabs, go out spread the disease and take up most of the ITU beds, then blame everyone else (as is their MO) for the problem that they refuse to do anything to help as that would be civil and sociable, while they are selfish.
