The Bell Tolls For Covid-19

I have just watched Sir John Bell; the Regius Professor of Medicine at the University of Oxford talking about the Pfizer vaccine and his emotional response to it, where he shouted “Yes, yes yes!” and threw his arms in the air on BBC Radio 4. Sir John and another Oxford academic; Melinda Mills are talking about multiple vaccines.

They certainly felt that we’re on our way back to normality.

  1. John Bell was on the Health Select Committee hearing this morning very straight forward talking gentleman who had a thing to to to say about how testing and tracing need to be modified to make them more effective. Got the feeling the MPs including Jeremy Hunt were on board but of course influence govt policy seems impossible unless you can get some campaign going publicly with a celebrity!

  2. I have the feeling that track and trace is suffering from the same problem of many government computer systems, since I first got involved with them in the 1970s. If you want a computer system to fail, ask the government to build it. This is not a problem with politicians, as it seems systems fail, no matter who is in power.

    I have heard some programmers say, that civil servants won’t employ someone, who earns more than they do.

    But if you pay peanuts you get monkeys!
