Plague Tapes #87

We can rebuild him.  Dr. Groove has been growing through a bit of an auld rebuild himself, and is coming out the other side.  Music is good as always but features a great track – Everything is Milk by immensely talented friend, John Braine.  Also watch out for the new song from Denise Chaila, Down and then some old testament preachin’ from Nick Cave.   Angela Davis helped Dr. Groove with this great truth…

77 Mins in The News Andrew brings us a good sign from the North.  The island is moving in different directions,  a tale of divering states, thanks to the huge roll out of vaccines in Northern Ireland.  Either way, the lack of excess deaths marks a moment in time when people can say in the North that they are beginning to emerge from the pandemic, due to the lack of excess deaths.  There is also a decrease in cases in Northern Ireland.  

In the Republic, we are bumping along on a plateau.  The schools opening up, appears to have resulted in a 10% week on week reduction, plateauing to a place where there is now no real decrease, and we have a steady500 cases a day.  The other factor at play here is the vaccine being rolled out.  We have the plan to have 82% of adults vaccinated by June, and much of the work is going to happen in April and May.  We need to try and ensure that we don’t go from 100% to 130% because that might signal the start of losing control of it again.  Both Italy and France are back in lockdowns, and going through another wave of infection.  

Love & Rage,

Dr. Groove
