Not cruel, just objective. Dry, bland. My grandfather occasionally liked to go to a british restaurant. Always the worst meal of the year with no close second place. British food is worse than british teeth.It is, all injections here are routinely called jabs.
Because of this STK will now say something cruel about british food
News from the future:My province declared yesterday that at the current trajectory, they expect essentially everyone in the province to be exposed to the new variant in about three weeks, that "prevention" is 100% a lost cause and that they're shifting to mitigating the damage and managing the load on the healthcare system instead, which I suppose I appreciate them saying since it's the reality of the situation. Anecdotally where I live, mask and vaccination uptake is pretty good so I mean there's not much that can be done really, just encouraging people to get their doses to lower the probability that they need hospitalization.
We're all catching it, just a matter of when and how bad we'll react. I genuinely think I'll be okay, but I really do worry for some of my family and it's keeping me up some nights
They presented these statistics as well (at a provincial level, not country-wide):
Partially-vaccinated people 3x less likely to end up in hospital
Fully-vaccinated people 6x less likely to be hospitalized
Boosted people 26x less likely to be hospitalized
Death is 63x more likely if someone is not vaccinated
News from the future:
We're a few weeks ahead of you and from the sounds of things started from a similar point - high vaccination uptake with high booster uptake. We also seem to have given up almost entirely on the idea of even minimizing transmission.
So far, so good. Deaths remain massively below last years peak, deaths in unvaccinated people are now very rare. Hospitals are running at a third of the height of the pandemic and the feared soaring rates hasn't materialised.
The issue from omicron seems to be far more that on the chance you have to go to hospital all of the staff will be off sick isolating with covid when you get there.
Get your booster and relax dude - you'll be fine.
Are you a political writer? Work for a news organisation? How do you write this bullshit so easily?Your chance of an unvaccinated person having a bad reaction to covid relatively low, but dangerous.
If you're eating worse, it must be grubs, assorted other insects, and tree bark with a tribe in the Amazon. Among first and second world countries, England is the worst by an immeasurable distance. It's like they have some kind of national boycott against flavor.Come on, it's not that bad.
Keep in mind I'm talking about british food itself, not better food it imports from elsewhere. Although even there, England manages to do the worst version of any other country's cuisine.
