    Doesn't hang about, does it. Bloody hell.
    Cool name this time, though. Omicron. Sounds like something Dan Dare might tackle.

    Oh dear.
    What an utterly ridiculous post.
    Major Covid variants....alpha, beta, delta, gamma and now Omicron. Spot anything in common?
    Chinese?? If u want to blame anyone, blame the Greeks.

    I love how they skipped over the letter Xi, so as not to offend a certain person, and give us an anagram of Moronic instead. ;)

    No messing by Boris. First he banned countries before even the EU and North America did and now we've at least 3 weeks of mandatory mask wearing. It's worrying that we could end up back at square one with March 2020 restrictions.

    Yes, it's almost like masks should always have been mandatory or something.

    Every time I book a holiday it all kicks off, supposed to be going to krakow on Thursday, paid for LFT tests which came yesterday, now we have to take PCR tests? Another £100, no doubt they’ll make isolations mandatory for anyone entering the country by Thursday. I lost money on a holiday on sept 2020 because it all kicked off again then, and also in October as Holland brought in requirement for everyone to isolate on entry for 5 days.
    I’m just fkd off that every time I wait until things have been settled for a while, book a holiday and it all goes to sht. I’m actually feeling quite depressed by it all.

    Just temporary these restrictions, till we all got vaccinated. That’s what all the experts on here told us, so there’s nothing to worry about.

    Definitely, definitely not forever. That’s a dangerous conspiracy theory.

    Sounds like they'll be mandatory down the Asda but not required in a crowded pub.
    Make of that what you will.

    Pandering to the neurotics or buying time until there’s some data, probably both. Masks are a feeble measure akin to pissing on a factory fire.
    Get my 3rd booster on Tuesday, do my bit, but I’m not yet in favour of any mandatory measures unless it is shown to be more deadly in some way than other variants which is unlikely in a vaccinated population.

    Yep, been brilliant for Germany that. Really made all the difference, and now they don’t have any COVID at all.
