People should always be wary of scams. Not just on this issue. There are scams in all walks of life. Nothing new here.
True. But as this is a thread about Covid-19, and that particular email is pretty convincing, it is worth posting here.
I did not say otherwise.

It is not convincing at all. The NHS would never do anything on the "basis of family genetics and medical history" for one it just would not have that information in most peoples records.

However I was not complaining about the post. Just simply pointing out that in this day and age, one should be wary of anything that lands in your inbox and not just this particular email.

There's been a lot of debate about anti-Vaxxers on Facebook lately. I am now coming forward to stand up and say I'm firmly in the anti-Vax camp. There, I've said it!
I have my reasons, like many anti-Vaxxers, but it's important that everyone approaches this sensitive topic armed with the information THEY know to be true. I know my truth and I have first hand experience that backs up my stance.
I had a Vax once and it was the noisiest shittiest vacuum cleaner ever. I will never buy one again. All these armchair experts have clearly never experienced the disappointment of having to go over the same piece of carpet again and again to pick up the same piece of fluff
I am firmly in the Henry/Charles camp backed up by my Shark, and I will not be told otherwise.

Fooled me, :clap: I had my arguments ready re vaccines but I am an anti Vaxxer as I hate our Vax steam cleaner

Covid-19: Social murder, they wrote—elected, unaccountable, and unrepentant
How could “murder” apply to failures of a pandemic response? Perhaps it can’t, and never will, but it is worth considering. When politicians and experts say that they are willing to allow tens of thousands of premature deaths for the sake of population immunity or in the hope of propping up the economy, is that not premeditated and reckless indifference to human life? If policy failures lead to recurrent and mistimed lockdowns, who is responsible for the resulting non-covid excess deaths? When politicians wilfully neglect scientific advice, international and historical experience, and their own alarming statistics and modelling because to act goes against their political strategy or ideology, is that lawful? Is inaction, action? How big an omission is not acting immediately after the World Health Organization declared a public health emergency of international concern on 30 January 2020?

It is noticeable that those pushing the hardest to lift restrictions are the same people as pushed the hardest for Brexit.
