  1. No thanks to your app not because I'm worried aboutt some tracking but you and your appointed drug doctors have given no health advice to the nation that actually does make a human body resillient to the virus. Your either immoral or incompetent . God knows .

  2. ██████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████

  3. This is pointless if your below 16 you can’t use because they don’t care about kids spreading it and they question why people think schools opening is a terrible idea

  4. All this for a virus that has a 99.96% recovery rate. I wonder what V2 will bring maybe a group of six proximity alert ?

  5. Hello,

    Note: We all look silly in face masks. I want many to see this message and remember it.

    BAME concept is stupid. If you eat well you will be low risk regardless of pigmentation.

    If there were still episodes coming out, South Park would be watched by all the people – there is too much material out there right now.

  6. My God the BBC is weak. Haven't watched it in years so checking back in it seems like Pravda. And people are required to pay for this?

  7. The US Government last week updated the survival rates (i,e., IF infected) for Covid 19:
    0-19 99.997%
    20-49 99.98%
    50-69 99.5%
    70 +. 94.6%
    (CDC website) Didn't see it reported much.

  8. Opportunistically, Boris' far-right government is already preparing the country for the effects of a hard Brexit next year

  9. This a start, but in all honesty, with Brexit coming its not looking great at all for the UK. Really concerning all of it, the economy, Brexit, this Covid, hmm, stressful.

  10. Look…It's a matter of when not if, the economy collapses

    This plandemic has had an agenda from day one; depopulation, social control, economic failure…etc

    Their plans will continue until we (the people) stand together and not comply or simply do nothing and eventually, agenda21 will materialise!.

    It's us against them!!!

  11. 14 mins just talking to that idiot Matt Hancock what a waste of fu**ing time!!! Literally no other news nothing at all but the fu**ing stupid app shit!! Idiots

  12. Only iPhones from the last 4 years and android phones from the last 3 years even work with this app. So the only people who can even download it are young people who get a new phone every year and aren't at risk from covid anyway. Utter shambles.

  13. How will it catch someone with the virus? I mean is there a way to capture the body temperature – eyes, finger tips?

  14. Why would anyone in the right mind , download an app that could tell you to self imprison yourself, ends your freedom of movement for the same period and would trigger a 1,000 pound fine if you don't ? Even on a false positive. The app also pairs automatically with any other phone with the same app , views network connections & scans QR Location Codes reporting it all back hence you in definition will record it with authority if you don't isolate. All the permissions are listed with the App, the rest is just coding. Not a good idea.

  15. Even big companys don't wanna accept this app to be use inside of their buildings…warehouses …

  16. There would be no such thing as a shortage of jobs or any unemployment in an intelligent world that made it financially worthwhile for people to SHARE the jobs we NEED people to do and work as little or as much as is NEEDED….but sadly there isn't much sign of intelligence on this planet….people will work and do anything FOR money but certainly not very much because the work is NEEDED.

  17. And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

    This, then, is how you should pray:

    Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us today our daily bread.
    And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from the evil one.

    For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

    "Matthew 5-7 NIV Bible Gateway", we can use google search.
    These are the teachings,
    The Righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ our God.
    REPENT, and start doing what is right.

    If you abide my teachings, you are really my disciples; then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
    May the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ our God be with you all.

  18. No FOSS option for the Covid app. I will not be forced to use, buy or carry a device subject to surveillance capitalism propping up the share price of a private American corporation. Support my system. ( and stop giving kids these operating systems and software in schools ). Shameful.

  19. BBC Spends more than £35Million to force the over 75's to pay up for a license or face bailiffs.

    BBC Studios and BBC America are part of the BBC and earn billions each year but are not counted as income.

  20. This female news anchor spends all her time staring daggers at her cohost. She seems an awful person to work with.

  21. Clearly, this will transform into the microchip that nobody without it will be able to buy or sell or travel. This is Skynet, it must be stopped now
