A million deaths
Today, the total dead from Covid-19 reached a million; this is six months into the pandemic. Seasonal flu kills 300,000 to 650,000 each year.
The flu season starts soon - ladysolly and I are getting our flu jabs next week, because we would rather not be one of the 300,000 to 650,000.
But there isn't a vaccine for Covid-19 - yet. I'm still hopeful that the Oxford University vaccine will be available soon, and I'm hoping to be in the second wave of vaccinations (the first wave will be healthcare workers and others in the front line).
But what you really don't want, is to get both at once; that will double the awfulness.
