Doing the Covid Shuffle — 11 Comments

    • Ah hold on there! Big Pharma is Ireland’s Sacred Cow. Its executives are wined and dined at the top table and their word is the word of the Great God Mammon.

      Not that I’m suggesting there is any undue influence or anything………..

      • Oh, far be it from me to think for a second that any undue influence was involved.

        Although, I have a feeling that pharma execs take an oath much like doctors.
        The difference being “First do no harm” is replaced by “First make sure the check does not bounce.”

  1. The Plain People of Ireland may well carry on as usual until ICUs and AEs are overwhelmed At which time you will will blame someone else. Especially if you are or your wife need treatment.

    • All hail our heroes in the HSE. The plain people of Ireland exist merely to sing their praises and serve as an inconvenience to them.

      Explain to me how closing the pubs a few hour early (pushing everyone onto the streets at the same time) and forcing certs in more areas (when vaccination rates are well over 90%) are going to save us ?

    • “Overwhelmed” is one of the great buzzwords these days. Maybe the answer lies in improving capacity in our ICUs and A&Es? Just as a side note, there are currently 114 in ICUs. At the peak in January there were over 200. I’m not suggesting that there isn’t a problem, but I’m just saying that the rhetoric is designed to panic us into compliance.

    • Did you not know that the Virus is a night owl? It sleeps during the day and comes out at midnight. The Covid certs are just a way of punishing the unvaxinated – get a jab and you are then allowed go for a pint.

  3. What’s happening in Ireland is happening worldwide wherever there are high vaccination rates. It’s a very bad time to get sick and rely on hospitals to help if you catch covid (or the alleged super flu that’s supposed to be hitting us this year.) Your best hope is get your own Ivermectin, Azithromycin and zinc sulphate and treat yourself. It worked in India so no reason why it shouldn’t work in Ireland too.

    • I have no wish to shuffle off my mortal coil just yet but I am a great believer in relying on my own resources. I take reasonable precautions and if I catch the Virus then so be it. The one thing I’m NOT going to do is ride the wave of panic the gubmint is trying to induce.
