  1. I read yesterday that apart from the lack of C19 for testing, hence the 50/50 report, Oxford are pretty optimistic following 16 years of research into Coronavirus vaccines and a successful adaptation to treat Mers. They believe that they have adapted this for C19.
  2. False negatives are the problem not positives.
  3. 14th June return with Watch Together App. Not 29th as I was previously told.
  4. A care home worker isn't being tested weekly and does not have the option of not playing if a resident is infected.
  5. Most of us are back at work and some of us never stopped. The jobs we did before the pandemic are the same as they are now. Some of us had times when we wished that we had chosen differently but cannot change that now.. Football was a national institution and I presume still is now. The money reflected that in players salaries as was argued at the time. Clubs have a right to expect their product to produce. Do you think that a care home worker isn't scared of going to work?
  6. I have been taking vit d since early March until the sun came out, as discussed much earlier in this thread when discussing BAME response to this virus. It is vital to the immune system.
  7. According to a journalist friend who is sending it to be corroborated, it may be the generic starting point. Well done Ireland.
  8. My copy rewords much of the Irish plan, for example, open up non essential shops in phase 3 but only if accessed from street level with a strict number and social distancing. Shopping malls don't open until a much later phase.
  9. Unless they are using theirs as a framework to send out to industry whilst they word our own with different priorities.
  10. ****. That is interesting. It might be B S sent to my friend unless the Gov have genuinely just put their own dates on the Irish plan. I will warn my friend...
  11. Sorry to tease. I have the generic 5 phase basic plan from a real friend who is really involved but even that changes daily hence a fairly generic plan.
  12. I have reliable information regarding the Sunday statement but can't share all 5 three week phases here. Suffice to say that if each phase increased infection rates we will revert to the previous one. Restarting sport behind closed doors is due, if the initial phases do not lead to a rise in the R 0 rate, in Phase 3 on June 29th.

  14. King's Lynn is a hotspot due to being a regional hospital hence a catchment area beyond the town. We need to be at 3000 new infections per day to achieve R 0.6. I really want there to be millions of unknown infections here but the evidence doesn't support my view on this.
  15. Are you The Scientist? You know, the one with The Science...
  16. Fair enough but I am also on Facebook, Twitter Instagram etc and would choose to make a stand on those platforms first.
  17. I am appalled that deep state paranoia could prevent uptake of life saving technology. A tracing app is only being considered as a way of containing a deadly epidemic. Test, trace and isolate could have saved so many lives in the UK. Remaining locked down will also cost lives. It is a way out of this national emergency. I can only assume that those who are against this have not witnessed the reality of this virus and probably assume that a random cold was their experience of it. It would be helpful if they could join the national effort to save lives.
  18. Haven't Glaxo joined up with the big French pharmaceutical manufacturer in order to do something potentially similar but when trials are complete?
  19. Mask have merit in protecting others but unless you have a gown, gloves and importantly googles you should not relax social distancing or touch your face.
  20. Sorry but test, trace, isolate is the only trusted way out of this situation and then do it again and again and again etc. Never let up, don't get bored of social distancing and test test test.
  21. The lack of uptake of ventilators reflects the changing clinical picture. Had Boris become unwell a month ago he may well not be with us. There has been recent research that suggests ventilation speeds up the infection. Now oxygen treatment is the preferred option.
  22. Thank you on behalf of all my colleagues.There is a lot of amazing work going on outside of the NHS.Everyone that socially distances, for example. I clap all the local Coop staff that risk infection everyday. Not modesty but a real appreciation for everyone still exposed to this and that includes everyone who is not being a **** at this time!
  23. That's a very good sign as it can go up quite quickly when stopped. Keep checking...
