For Me, It Looks Like A Christmas In Isolation

Britons across the country demonstrated their dismay at having to spend Christmas Day in isolation this year after testing positive for COVID 19, meaning they must remain home for the next ten days.

People tweeted pictures of positive lateral flow tests and said they were feeling sorry for themselves and Merry Christmas to them, amid claims more than 1 million people are likely to be isolated with COVID on their own on December 25.

According to official calculations, the pace at which the Omicron variant is circulating means that four times more people are likely to be isolated with COVID this Christmas than last December 25, when household mixing was prohibited across much of the country and a third national shutdown was looming.

Anyone becoming sick from today onwards will still be in the required ten-day isolation period on Christmas Day.

Yesterday there were more than 4,700 confirmed Omicron cases, and Ministers claim the number is doubling every two days, and that at this pace, almost 100,000 people will be confirmed with Omicron on Christmas Eve, and around 1 million will be isolated the next day.

Health Secretary Sajid Javid told MPs that even if Omicron turned out to be less severe than the Delta variant, the fact it spreads so easily meant it still has the potential to devastate the NHS, and he told Ministers that modellers believe Omicron cases may already be running at 200,000 a day and doubling every two to three days.

However, some experts have cast doubt on the figure, which is far higher than the official COVID total and which is based on disputed mathematical modelling. Downing Street insisted the projection was valid.

England’s chief medical officer Professor Chris Whitty warned the Cabinet during an update yesterday that the new Omicron variant was spreading unbelievably fast.

Professor Chris Whitty also warned Ministers that astronomical infection rates would spark staff shortages in pubs, restaurants and shops, sparking concerns of a repeat of the so-called pingdemic that led to the shutdown of whole swathes of the economy over the summer.

He also said the wave could trigger a substantial increase in hospitalisations. Scary Government modelling predicted that hospital admissions could surpass levels seen during the January lockdown when 4,000 infected patients were needing medical care every day. In response, NHS bosses yesterday ordered hospitals to discharge as many patients as possible off wards and into care homes.

Of course, the emotive here is just kill granny. Or maybe granny might want to take personal responsibility for her own life? This is all hogwash and it stands to reason that if someone felt ill they would stay away from people, we don’t need the Government to tell us what to do.

You simply can’t hide away from a virus that not going to go away for an extremely long time. It’s going to linger about for at least the next five years, if not longer.

People who have been to have their vaccinations are still being told that they’re at risk, so what was the point of having two jabs and a booster if it doesn’t work?

The problem is we live in a world that the masses are delusional. First, it was one mask, then two jabs. Now it’s two masks and seven jabs, and you have to surrender your children. Soon it will be three masks, 12 jabs, three children and a partridge in a pear tree.

Navigating all this is challenging, but we should never have to conform to a delusional society, and if you’re truly sane, you will always be deemed a pariah by a society that has gone utterly insane.

At any other time, people would have just gotten on with their lives. Now the Government gives you a piece of plastic to test with and put down your throat and up your nose and you’ve got your five minutes of fame – Stockholm Syndrome.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
