"Complaining about a "pingdemic" is a bit like complaining that your fire alarm has gone off because you’ve burnt something on the hob: yes, it’s a pain, but the problem isn’t the fire alarm."

I'm not happy about reducing an important virus warning alert to a "ping". We need to be taking them more seriously than this.

@proactiveservices yes we do. However the UK press, in their rightwing way, like to trivialise the issue, as they are blind to the upcoming delta wave.

@gairsty well i trashed my fire alarm after it went off at night and it hasnt bothered me since
