    India - How bad can it get?

    I would agree we know that the numbers are understated, if we take the worldometer numbers at least we have a standard upon which to base the predictions. An alternative proposition is to take the seven day average approach. Deaths = (W1+W2+W3+W4+W5+W6+W7)x1000/7 Where W1 through W7 are the daily Wikipedia Indian deaths reported due to covid grossed up by a correlation factor restated on a daily basis. The correlation factor may need some work but as a general overview this may be more accurate than the official figures.

    India - How bad can it get?

    We know that it is going to get worse before it gets better, there are two questions I have to ask. 1. What is the maximum number of daily deaths that will be recorded? 2. How long will their second wave last. Given a starting point of 3,800 the daily rate needs to be below this for 10 consecutive days (my definition) my answers 11,500 and 23rd November 2021. Numbers by the end of May.

    So .. What Do You Watch On TV?

    I saw Rocketmam on Netflix the other evening, Mrs Controller and I both enjoyed it, for the music, the acting and the period settings. Worth a view, you forget just how many good songs there were.

    Notable Coronavirus Victims

    The gentleman has had both doses of the Covid vaccine and so is unlikely to show major signs from suffering from the virus, politically I would think that he is trying to avoid panic, this is something he is not achieving.

    Covid 19 ------- Third wave?

    It would appear that in India they have been trying to suppress the Covid numbers for some time, eventually the numbers tell the truth and the situation can't be played down or hidden. It was madness that a few weeks ago cricket grounds were full and religious festivals were going on with little consideration to any of the protective protocols. We can but wait and see how this develops, they just seem to be cremating bodies from the coverage at alarming rates. The quoted figures still appear to be understated.

    So .. What Do You Watch On TV?

    Just watched Life of Brian on Netflix. A film of its time that could just not be made today, very funny but not especially woke, one for the snowflakes to melt.

    What I would like to have been to qualify for Deathlist

    Niles Rogers had a catchy little riff which seems to have earned a fair bit, that would be nice as well.

    What I would like to have been to qualify for Deathlist

    Please note the classification of Shipman is one I do not like, I passed the surgery twice a day on my way to work and several of my colleagues had relatives who had been his victims, a detestable human being.
  12. I had a thought that the the aim of deathlisters was to celebrate the lives of those who had achieved something in their existence. So here is my question to deathlisters, even if you have not achieved anything yourself, trolling, sniping, and critiquing on social media accounts do not count. Personally I am an accountant and so my scope is limited. What would you like to have been remembered for or let your imagination run wild dream to have been remembered for. Personally I would like to have been a OO assassin, astronaut or a participant in successful time travel experimentation

    Covid 19 ------- Third wave?

    Anyone remember the Europeans planning and the butter mountains? This was the result of previous political meddling for the greater good. Too many cooks in the kitchen, fingers in the pie, lunatics in the asylum and politicians trying to look good. Astra Zeneca Vaccine produced on a non profit basis does make the vaccines cheaper. Cheaper does not mean inferior in performance. The third wave is happening in the countries where the uptake of the vaccines has been slow, politicians are just trying to shift the blame for their own poor performance. Does anybody question who has produced the annual flu Jabs? No, we have political one-upmanship with the Europeans once again demonstrating why the Brexit negotiations were so difficult with petty bureaucracy replacing common sense. There appears to be a blind sheep mentality with little common sense being shown. Literally lemmings off a cliff. The politicians who make unsubstantiated comments about the lack of efficacy of a Vaccine should be held to account. Off the cuff political comments can create a lot of damage.

    Covid 19 ------- Third wave?

    And the critical point is 13 clots 1 death, keep taking the aspirin. There is a greater chance of being knocked over by a car and a much larger risk of dying from Covid they need to get a sense of perspective. This is scaremongering and a greater appreciation of the general risks in existence is required. If I was being cynical it would just be another excuse for the poor vaccination performance in the EU.
