      An idle exercise this morning, I went on the Cunard website. May cruises aren't showing any more. Indicative?

          I had an email this morning from VtoG in Houston this morning saying that US infection rates have fallen 77%, and they expect to achieve herd immunity by April. That being so they hope that cruising can start again in the not too distant future. Whether that will happen is anyone's guess, but that made me realise that there has been no mention of herd immunity here for a long time. I wonder how far we are from achieving that?

            US close to herd immunity by April - which April??

            If I have to guess herd immunity of current covid 19 strains in UK - I'll plump for Dec 2021. Current status is approx 20% have had CV19 + 30% vaccinated 1st dose. We don't know how long immunity lasts do we?? No doubt TD will be along to correct me.

              I received that email too Peter. I think Mr Fox is trying to generate bookings as he’s been saying that for weeks. That said, I can’t blame him for trying to be positive.

                I'm expecting my June cruise on Anthem to be cancelled, although the RCI website still has cruises beginning in April.

                  Not been tracking the cumulative estimated data but a quick google come up with this for a month ago
                  https://news.sky.com/story/covid-19-...nuary-12207328

                  20% not unreasonable guess the key point being that 4/5 are still at risk


                  one obvious observation is the overlap between had covid and vaccinated for covid

                  got to avoid double counting you can't use a straight + to get an estimate of those protected.


                  The 30% vaccinated comes from ~18m/66


                  I think it is something like 15m(uk) in the top 4 JVCI groups let say 80% of them have been done that leaves 6/66 for the rest of the population ~10% vaccine penetration



                  Need more research to get the age distribution profile of those previously infected to deal with that aide of the double count.


                  ------------------------------------------------------

                  We have a real problem with this rush to open up, many people think we don't need to protect everyone because most people survive and don't get that ill,

                  that leads them to once we have protected those that do get ill that's it. open up.

                  (That ignores that younger people do get ill and many even if not serious have long covid after effects that are a permanent disability)


                  if you do open then what happens is more people get it(a lot more of those 4/5) and it spreads to those where the vaccines have not worked so you still get people seriously ill and dying.


                  The bigger risk with a virus that has high prevalence is you can get vaccine escape and you have to start again( there is some evidence that is already happening)


                  We cannot let numbers go up even in the groups that don't get that ill we need to keep the social interventions in place to get transmissions down
