Hindsight eh?! Had to suppress a smile today in reading that Novavax is being bottled & finished in the north east...at...Barnard Castle of all places☺️

Oddly I didn’t  actually hear him say Barnard Castle, perhaps he couldn’t see his notes, or maybe a convenient oversight.

Edit: something else to add to the Barnard Castle TripAdvisor review

I maybe mistaken and please correct me if I have it wrong but didn’t we report that on the COS in November or December, is it in Tyne Tees ?

Anyone see the Panorama undercover report into the Covid Test Laboratory?

My goodness, the three tests I had could all be wrong. But there again, everybody positive could have been negative.

When you have targets to meet, well . . .

Don't know much about Novavax, is it purely a Covid vaccine or does it sort out defective eyesight as well - perhaps one of those vaccine side effects we keep hearing so much about 😂

Wonder what year life got back to normal then? If the world was "empty" in 2027 then maybe it won't!

So many questions...Did the EU sort out it's vaccine mess? Did Paul post that link? Did Daniel sign up for another year? How much did we get for Emi? Goodness...how I wish we could see into the future🙃😑🤨

One set of 15 football results would do me, or the Euro Millions when it gets to the Max lol.

Thing is if the mad one told me the numbers and they were for real, I would still miss out as I wouldn’t believe him.

So Novavax snub the EU just as I suggested was happening yesterday due to their treatment of AZ.  The EU are certainly experts at driving away business to us little englanders away from the BIG 27 .  Long may it continue !! 🤗:

Here's a handy tip for you Paul, if you are using the Express to validate your lies then you're not going to convince anyone.

More ill-informed nonsense from Paul Moy.

Novavax deal is exclusive to UK for 60 million doses produced in the UK, with no deliveries to EU, and bottled and filled in UK.  I wonder why..... 😂

The UK doesn't export vaccines.

We do export some ingredients to the EU but we do not export vaccines.

You're still pathetic.

Maybe because the EU didn’t buy any.

Ever since UVDL opened her mouth and caused a lot of indecisions concerning  the AZ vaccine this past 2 or 3 months, which filtered down thru to their populations and help build this feeling of unease about the AZ vaccine, all its done is help the slowness of vaccine take up in many EU states and beyond. This has been such a sorry saga, its the EU populations right now that are suffering with being so far behind in the vax programs, absolutely many will suffer as it clashes with massive new waves of infections to.

I dont get involved with the rhetorics of both media and politicians either side of the  Channel or North Sea, we are all Europeans and while im  happy with the situation in the UK regarding the low state of Covid infections and deaths and the high uptake and state of the vaccination program,  i absolutely feel for the general populations in the EU who will and are suffering thru  those indecisions.

Let’s hope not as time goes by as we need all countries to get vaccinated ASAP. It’s all swings and roundabouts one of their big shots was Johnson and Johnson which is a single dose with 55 million set to begin to arrive on 19/4. There are some reports that with the EU Pfizer have developed and already supplied a new vaccine that deals with the variants. 

Only history will tell the story of the world and how it will judge countries like the US, China and Russia. I am sure in world history our spat with the EU may get a paragraph. The main story will be was it best to back old technologies or the new MRNA technologies, or were they equal. Just to show how things can change, last week China were vaccinating at 300,000 per day today it looks like it could top the 5 million. Who would have thought the main countries supplying poorer countries would be China and Russia ( even if it has been done for their own particular gain ) after their promises not to share until their citizens were vaccinated, whereas the West who said they would ensure all vaccines were shared, have kept it to themselves. 
Funny old world, which could have a dangerous look when Russia and China begin to look for support from their new friends in continents like Africa.

To be fair it was Trump and Fauci and now Biden ( maybe not him personally ) that have launched the biggest attacks on AstraZeneca. The EU have joined in with several other nations. A very good PR job was done to throw all the blame at the EU, yep their initial 3 months have not been good, but they are by no means the instigators of trying to get rid of AstraZeneca.

Thanks for the info Ricardo. Really  starting to see new infections weekly rate decreasing again, something i did not expect but  so good to see. I think whats happening is that some stubborn blue colored area these past few weeks, mainly in a line from North Lincs across South Yorks into Central Lancs and another around The Wash stretching down to Corby, are very slowly decresing now so helping to get the  number decreasing again. Deaths and admissions  continue to decrease and hopefully the 2nd vax dose program in April really  starts  to wind up. All still good and getting better.

I see you make this point quite often WBB, the way Russia and China are using vaccine to gain some traction in places like Africa, and yes you have a good point. But don’t forget this sort of activity, particularly by China, has been going on for years, it’s just another page of the same book. Many years ago I worked in Zimbabwe for a while ( public health as it happens )and the Chinese influence there was massive, they built hospitals, trained their military and special services, supplied military hardware and software etc etc they have been involved massively in Africa for years.

I will both agree and disagree, I don’t think it’s Africa necessarily you need to worry about, where AstraZeneca have been unable to supply Covax in Africa China and Russia have stepped in. Unfortunately that’s not the only areas where deliveries are failing, Brazil,Mexico, Argentina, Pakistan, Hungary,Serbia and so the list goes on as AstraZeneca are unable to get their exports out of India and The US. Russia simply gave so much away they are now having to export in from countries like Indonesia who also manufacture Sputnik. America and China have bought up most the materials required.
