The Italian government has today made it obligatory for ALL workers either to show proof of vaccination, a negative test or recent recovery from infection.
The new rules will come into force on Oct 15 in the latest effort by Prime Minister Mario Draghi’s broad coalition to persuade people to get inoculated and blunt contagion in one of the countries worst-hit by the virus.
Any worker who fails to present a valid health certificate will be suspended on no pay, but cannot be sacked, according to a draft of the decree seen by Reuters. The full details are due to be published later in the day.
About half of all Covid-19 patients in Irish hospitals and intensive care units are fully vaccinated against the disease, new figures show. One-sixth of deaths of people with the virus since April have been categorised as breakthrough infections of fully vaccinated patients, according to Health Service Executive data.
More than one-quarter of ICU admissions since July were also breakthrough infections of fully vaccinated people.
The UK announced its plan to deal with Covid this coming winter in a marathon one hour press conference in Downing Street this afternoon. The main image pretty much sums it up. Despite 65% of the UK population having been vaccinated, the current Covid situation is far worse than at the same point last year.
At 24:25 in the conference:
Oh, and the vaccines have been so successful you will need to have a third dose to top up that incredible success.
65% of the population have been vaccinated in the UK:
Whilst the Downing Street press conference was being held, today’s UK Covid figures were released. Another 185 people have died and more than 1,000 have gone into hospital since yesterday.
UK SAGE: Between 2,000 and 7,000 people a day could be hospitalised with Covid in England next month (The Guardian)
SAGE DOCUMENT: SPI-M-O: Consensus statement on COVID-19, 8 September 2021
The Rio Times: “80% of Covid deaths in Scotland during August were people who had been vaccinated. Despite official government reports being molded to try to show otherwise, brief scrutiny of those same numbers shows that, during the entire month of August, up to 80% of the people who supposedly died from Covid-19 in Scotland had been vaccinated against the disease.”
“Public Health Scotland report shows the number of deaths that have occurred and the vaccination status of the deceased. However, PHS has been manipulative in the way it has presented the number of deaths.“
Because instead of presenting them week by week as they have done with the number of cases and hospitalizations, they have changed the logic and included deaths since December 29.”
“This means that they are including deaths from the height of the supposed second wave of Covid-19, where only 9% of the population had received a dose and only 0.1% of the entire population was fully vaccinated. Because of that, PHS can give the impression that most Covid-19 deaths occur among the unvaccinated population.”
“The table above is taken from the report published by Public Health Scotland on August 18, 2021, and shows Covid deaths by vaccination status between December 29, 2020, and August 5, 2021. As you can see, anyone reading the report might get the impression that vaccines are doing a fantastic job of preventing Covid-19 deaths.”
“But fast forward to the most recent report, and you will find in Table 17 that there have been 3,102 deaths among the unvaccinated population, 279 deaths among the partially vaccinated population, and 298 deaths among the fully vaccinated population between December 29 and August 26, 2021.
Therefore, the actual number of deaths by vaccination status between August 5 and August 26, 2021, is as follows:
Unvaccinated population – 25 deaths
Partially vaccinated population – 6 deaths
Fully vaccinated population – 92 deaths”

The UK health secretary Sajid Javid has said plans for Covid-19 vaccine passports to gain access to nightclubs and other crowded venues in England “will not be going ahead”.
He told BBC’s The Andrew Marr Show: “I’ve never liked the idea of saying to people you must show your papers or something to do what is just an everyday activity, but we were right to properly look at it. We’ve looked at it properly and whilst we should keep it in reserve as a potential option, I’m pleased to say that we will not be going ahead with plans for vaccine passports.”
The real reason that vaccine passports are not going ahead though, is made clear in the post below.
Public Health England have recently released vaccine breakthrough data for England that shows that the majority of people now becoming infected with Sars-CoV-2 are fully or partially vaccinated, and that the majority of hospitalizations and deaths from Sars-CoV-2 are also fully vaccinated.
Under those circumstances, it would make no sense, politically, legally or medically, to try to segregate the unvaccinated from the vaccinated, and it would present a tangible risk to public order to try to enforce such measures. Any such scheme would almost certainly be struck out by the courts.
** Just in case anyone thinks this is good news, well, it’s really not. We were never in favour of vaccine passports, we never thought that the vaccines would work, but Britain is now in a very precarious position with schools having just reopened and with workers encouraged to head back to the office.
The UK now has around 40,000 new Covid cases, almost 1,000 are being hospitalized and there more than 140 deaths from Covid every day.
Britain is going into winter with waning vaccines, a creaking health service, and with almost all mitigations including masks and social distancing abandoned. Britain is about to find out just how ugly Covid-19 can get. It’s March 2020 all over again. **

ITV journalist Robert Peston is getting a roasting on social media today for pointing out the fully vaccinated over-40’s are far more likely to become infected with Covid-19 than unvaccinated over-40’s .
Peston posted the chart below from the latest Public Health England Covid-19 vaccine surveillance report for Week 36. It clearly shows that those aged over 40 who have had both vaccine jabs are far more likely to become infected than those that are unvaccinated.
Official information about vaccine breakthroughs has been available from around the globe for months Robert. Why hasn’t any of the mainstream media looked at it? Are there any investigative journalists left, or are amateur internet investigators supposed to do the hard work whilst paid journalists simply reprint government press releases that are emailed to them without checking the facts first?
Public Health England have finally released some detailed vaccine breakthrough data for England this week. The data covers the period 9th August to 5th September 2021, some 8 months after the vaccination campaigns first began.
Rather than putting our own interpretation on the figures, we’ll simply republish the charts and let you decide whether they reflect your understanding of what was on offer when the vaccines were first approved and rolled out.
Firstly, cases by vaccination status:
Secondly, hospitalizations by vaccination status:
And lastly, deaths by vaccination status:
The full Public Health England report is here: “COVID-19 vaccine surveillance report Week 36“
28th May 2021: UK Health Secretary says vaccines are “severing the link between cases and hospitalizations and deaths from coronavirus“.
Of the 9,253 breakthrough infections, 375 people have been admitted to hospital within 14 days of a positive PCR test for Covid-19. 57 deaths have been recorded within 30 days of a breakthrough infection detected via PCR test. SSI’s data also gives the percentage of breakthrough infections amongst all infections during the same period as 4.9 percent, but somewhat higher at 20% for the month of August alone.
As of August 31st, the proportion of breakthrough infections amongst fully vaccinated people is therefore 0.23 percent for the entire period from December 2020 – August 31st 2021.
There have been 13,166 vaccine breakthrough cases identified in Oregon. The median age of breakthrough cases is 48 years. 512 breakthrough cases were residents of care facilities, senior living communities, or other congregate living settings. 3,350 of cases were 65 or older. There have been a total of 217 cases aged 12-17. Breakthrough cases have been reported in all 36 counties.
To date, 4.9% of all known breakthrough cases have been hospitalized (n=650), and only 0.9% have died (n=113). The median age of the people who died was 81.
We report on humoral immunity from 2 weeks to 6-months post-vaccination in 120 nursing home residents and 92 ambulatory healthcare worker controls with and without pre-vaccination SARS-CoV-2 infection. Anti-spike, anti-RBD and neutralization levels dropped more than 84% over 6 months’ time in all groups irrespective of prior SARS-CoV-2 infection. At 6 months post-vaccine, 70% of the infection-naive NH residents had neutralization titers at or below the lower limit of detection compared to 16% at 2 weeks after full vaccination.
Anti-spike and anti-receptor binding domain (RBD) IgG, and serum neutralization titers, were assessed using a bead-based ELISA method and pseudovirus neutralization assay.
The latest vaccine breakthrough figures for California make sobering reading, showing the extent of the vaccine breakthrough crisis now engulfing the state. The vaccine breakthrough rate for infections in Los Angeles stands at 30%, there have been 112,460 recorded vaccine breakthrough cases in California, 2,944 were hospitalized and there were 306 deaths.
“Between January 01, 2021 and August 29, 2021 in California,
- Out of over 22.5 million fully vaccinated individuals, 112,460 post-vaccination cases (0.5%) have been identified.
- At least 2,944 individuals identified as post-vaccination COVID-19 cases were hospitalized.
- Among post-vaccination cases identified, at least 306 people have died.”
Grim news from Scotland where fresh Covid outbreaks are causing record infection numbers and vaccine breakthrough cases are now in the majority for both Covid hospitalizations and deaths. The partially and fully vaccinated now account for a majority of new cases too.
