If only there was an appetite for a form of QE that could go directly to people who would spend the money and help create jobs. Fairer taxation of unearned income would be a good idea if they want to avoid unemployment but thatís not going to happen either, so there will be millions of unemployed just as we head towards the no-deal disaster and a climate crisis.

Clearly lockdown was successful in halting the transmission, 300,000 positive tests out of 66 million people. With antibody tests showing a similarly small % of the population have had COVID-19.

'stagflation'

So that's 'stag', which are big already, plus 'inflation', probably with a compressor, cos a bike pump just isn't up to it ..

Then everything will be 'massively deer'?

QE is by no means the economic panacea that a lot of people believe it to be and sooner or later you have to pay the ferryman.

The way I see this whole crisis panning out I believe that stagflation will be a very real danger.

My missus works in a school and didn't feel very well on Tuesday, it wasn't covid symptoms but she was sent for a test at 3pm just to be sure. She got the all clear result at 8am the next day.
Don't know about the past but it was certainly good this week.

Looks like the testing numbers might not be that reliable

"Nobody knows how many have had it not everyone with symptoms has been tested."

Exactly and the antibody testing and validation program( which is country/community wide) is finding very few have contracted it.
Regardless of little Billy had a chest infection in January or Jane had a dry cough in February :- they've had it.

Government testing has been a shambles you're right.

Yes the official figure is valid because of the positive tests, that bits obvious, but how many times have they said Asymptomatic and minor responses?

Nobody knows how many have had it not everyone with symptoms has been tested.

Out of 10 close family members 7 have had severe flu symptoms similar to Covid, from December and into lockdown. We don't live in each others pockets so infected separately at different times. We are a family who don't visit if we have a cold or the likes anyway. No tests were done during symptoms as they weren't around or available at the time. No one knows if anyone or everyone had it?

Whats happened to the 3 million game changing antibody tests, the vaccine tests and the new spit in a tube test?

All supposedly forgotten about because people can go to the PUB

The lockdown was to late and abused by to many to be effective as the stats show, no spike after riots, marches, beaches and raves. Does this mean it was more widespread than thought and people are immune without realising? or is it losing it'd potency? or some other reason?

The official stats are as near to fact as you can get or we're fooling ourselves. Are you saying the lockdown was too effective? I've said before my brother is a scientist now working on COVID-19 testing and is part of the antibody testing and validation program. The boffins he talks to indicate a tiny percentage of the population has had COVID-19 already.
