The AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine has been rumoured to cause blood clots (with little evidence).
The cartoon shows someone (an anti-vaxxer) reacting to this.

A cartoon showing someone attempting to hire delivery vans to deliver the Covid-19 coronavirus vaccine to hospitals etc. He can’t hire any delivery vans because they are all being used for delivering online Christmas shopping.

A cartoon or illustration showing the Covid-19 coronavirus being attacked by syringes of vaccines.
The illustration is drawn in a style to suggest that the Covid-19 virus is an alien form and the syringes of vaccine are rockets, planes or missiles that are attacking the virus.

Cartoon about the pandemic of conspiracy theories about the covid-19 pandemic.
The conspiracy theories about the origin of the covid-19 coronavirus include it being created in a Chinese lab, being released by Bill Gates so that he can control the world, and that it is caused by G5 signals from phone masts.

Covid-19 coronavirus lockdown rules cartoon regarding funerals and political demonstrations.
A cartoon pointing out the problem that thousands of people were allowed to gather for political protests over the weekend with only mild criticism over the fact that it broke the coronavirus lockdown rules (justifiably or not, depending on your viewpoint), while the rules state that, for instance, only ten people can gather for a funeral.
I’m sure that in the near future funeral-goers will ignore the lockdown rules and will attend in larger numbers on the grounds that their reason for attending is justifiable.
Last week Dominic Cummings, the prime minister’s adviser, was in hot water because he chose to defy the lockdown rules relating to covid-19.
This week thousands of demonstrators chose to defy the lockdown too.
Does that take the pressure off Cummings, as the demonstrators are potentially much more likely to spread the coronavirus, yet they haven’t come in for the same criticism (justifiably or not, depending on your point of view).
Covid-19 coronavirus, social distancing and political demonstrations.
A cartoon about the tension between the need for social distancing and the right to attend political demonstrations – as highlighted by the recent Black Lives Matter demonstrations linked to the death of George Floyd.
The dilemma is not linked to the cause advocated by the demonstrations, and would apply no matter what the cause.
