Plague Tapes #111 The return
Just when you thought you were done, they get pulled back in. Dr. Groove was considering coming back with a show just of music and musings, as is the format of Groove on the Wireless, but instead Covid raises over 2000 cases a day, Andrew tweets about a fifth wave, [because he’s the one that’s been doing all the counting] and we get pulled back into public broadcasting mode of Plague Tapes.
Dr. Groove has not been having a great day, and that led to a section of tunes which are driving riffs and the soundtrack for a fight. Andrew gets pulled back into the studio to tell us what’s going on with the Corona.
News: Folks have been demanding that Andrew comes back and tells us what the hell is going on. There is an absence of information, because the narrative was we were going back to normal, and we thought that 92% vaccination was enough, and the figures bouncing up to 2000 cases a day and case figures of 135% of what it was last week are now indicating that this return to normal may not be as smooth as predicted, or even possible. Is this a spike or is it going to continue to rise. Incidence is now over 400 per 100,000 and the most astounding figure of all is that 2 out of three people in ICU are from the unvaccinated Andrew discusses what the longer term consequences of living with Covid, or of allowing it to become endemic are.
