This is a long article....and makes depressing reading, particularly if you’re an expat hoping to get vaccinated.

Perhaps they should pump out, and distribute - free - Tramadol.

That way, no one would care whether or not they were infected :lol:

Finally after becoming a lab-rat and jumping through all their various hoops the Oxford University and
National Office for Statistics.
Have finally sent me M & S *food tokens totalling £150.

I'm not blaming them the tokens are outsourced, probably to a Tory crony shelf company.
Trying to figure out a smart phone is on the same level as getting hold of the tokens.

I realised this many years ago when they said "TV remote controls are easy to use, really ?
I thought they just made them more complicated.
Same as smart phones.....

So Marks and Sparks wednesday Nick & Johnny are coming to dinner.. 8)

Ps: *food tokens Take note; No Booze or Fags...ffs.

In the same context, Dr. Ahmed Muharram, Director of Al-Sadr Hospital, explained that the hospital is now receiving a large number of coronavirus patients, compared to the previous days when the second coronavirus pandemic started, and that the hospital is almost complete with cases and has 6 Places just empty.

And this from the Egypt Independent:
Meteorologists predict moderately warm weather on Sunday over Cairo, Lower Egypt, and northern Upper Egypt, moderate weather on the northern coasts during the daytime, warm weather on South Sinai and moderately hot weather on southern Upper Egypt.

Temperatures will grow very cold on Cairo, Lower Egypt, the northern coasts, and Upper Egypt by nightfall, and cold on South Sinai.



Maximum temperatures:
Alexandria: 19C

Cairo: 22C

Qena: 25C

Luxor and Aswan: 26C


So the warmer weather will kill the virus.... Right ?
Wrong....I am afraid that was a joke.... 8)
