That at least is something I would hope everyone here could agree on.
(still waiting for mine btw)
No it shouldn't, when what is being discussed is the risk to individuals living at the venue (as per Wadih's post)Matt Mackenzie wrote: ↑Mon Mar 01, 2021 3:08 pmIt is close to 100% as far as serious illness/death is concerned.Ian Thompson wrote: ↑Mon Mar 01, 2021 11:57 amThat's not correct because the vaccine isn't 100% effective at preventing someone catching coronavirus.Wadih Khoury wrote: ↑Mon Mar 01, 2021 11:42 amMore seriously, given the profile of the people living at the venue, I wouldn't be surprised if they and their carers will all be vaccinated (including second dose) in the next couple of months. If they are indeed vaccinated, a chess tournament will present no risk to them.
Arguably it should be up to individuals to decide whether they think the small remaining risk is worth it or not.
Visiting or at least consulting a doctor seems implied by the last paragraph.
I’m waiting for a referral to a lung specialist and to a long covid clinic and I hope some progress will emerge from that.
And back in lockdown from tonight for 3 weeks

Indeed. And it's also possible that an account of somebody's symptoms doesn't entail an account of all their encounters with medical professionals. But it doesn't take a close reading to think of either of these things, it just entails an appreciation that it's better to think before repeatedly running off at the mouth at the expense of the recently deceased.
Yes, very sad news about Ian St John, although not unexpectedSimon Rogers wrote: ↑Tue Mar 02, 2021 3:06 pmYeah saw it on North West News, not good, Mick.
The government found a cluster of 50 cases possibly transmitted originally from someone who worked on the IOM Ferry.
Sad news about the Liverpool FC legend Ian St.John passing away.
I also spotted on the Yorkshire Chess Association website a couple of days ago that the Hull Rapidplay postponed until April, has been cancelled.
Antihistamines are a treatment for allergies, not a remedy for Long Covid. Taking them on the advice of a Facebook page is not a sensible thing to do.
Definitely, although don't expect it to be advertised. You can't make serious money out of that.
Actually not, I've ducked mine. I suppose I shall have to have it at some point, when it means that the Government allows me to do something that is otherwise forbidden ( eg leave their country ), but for now I'm happy to let my jab go to someone who is really keen to get it. You, perhaps?
