It's almost as if our medical experts are fumbling around in the dark isn't it Con?

In other news Kier Stammer is demanding to know from the PM why many old people are dying in old people's homes, from a virus that is proving to be a killer of old people. Ian Blackford of the SNP is demanding to know from the PM why London buses are full of people travelling by bus in London. The last time I looked London isn't in Scotland, and the PM isn't in charge of London Transport, otherwise a fair question.

I don't know if you can see the same adverts as me Bill but no wonder there are funeral adverts on with a "7 women to one man dating" ad....extreme exhaustion to say the least ..

Lets face it folks we are going to die. When we don't know. Where we don't. How we don't know. But it is going to happen so why worry about a remote possibility of catching a parti

FYI.   There has been about a 100 virus cases in the US and 10 deaths.  Not a lot out of 330,000,000.  However, all of the deaths were very old people with existing severe medical conditions, in fact

So now it gets dafter -  the Education Secretary says that kids will be allowed back to school and any "showing symptoms can be tested".   What if they are asymtomatic and show no symptoms, what happens if they catch it after being tested ?   Meanwhile,  the advice on not using public transport seems to have failed already with busses and the tube packed.  It's not just HMG, seems the EU is claiming tourists can return to Europe by the end of Summer, presumably carrying the virus with them to places like Greece, which are relatively clear at the moment.  😷

They don't seem to understand why rush hour is called rush hour ,when everybody wants to travel. London & most major cities would grind to a halt if everyone travelled to work by car.

Seasonal flu is lethal for some, so situation normal.

US statics. :   70% of all deaths have occurred in aged nursing homes or aged care / retirement homes.    100% of all deaths have all had pre existing serious medical conditions such as heart, lung, kidneys, diabetes etc.  In fact, it is widely thought that some of the deaths were from those problems, but it is easier for the authorities to tag it covid19 .

From my doctor :  in his practice and those of his friends, the results from covid19 are :  In normally healthy patients up to 50 the range is, sniffles up to a heavy cold.   In patients over 50 the range is slight flu up to heavy flu that results in a couple of days in bed and a course of antibiotics.

Headlines reporting 'cases' are close to fake news, they should be reporting deaths, giving age and circumstances.  If they report covid19 cases, the should also report gout, measles, mumps and back pain cases !  At the 'case' stage, covid19 is no more news worthy than those.

Idiot !  The antibiotics help to protect you from other sources and help your immune system.   You really are a condescending, self important prig and you don't even know it.  That's sad.

Make snide smartass remarks and you get assasinated.     I have been tested.  I developed a bad cold, snot, sore throats and sneezing.  After three days I called for and got a test appointment.  I was swabbed at a local hospital and told that it would be four days before a result.  In the meantime I was I was told to go home, stay isolated and they gave me a prescription for antibiotics, which I was to start immediately.  I called my doctor and told him what had happened and he confirmed that I should begin the antibiotics right away.  So, unless you have far supererior medical qualifications, I would guess that you are wrong.  The test turned out negative, it really was a cold.

Antibiotics are useless against a virus, perhaps you could try the Dettol ? !    :rolleyes:   😷

They are indeed ineffective against the virus itself but the effect of the virus is often to make conditions such that other diseases such as pneumonia can take hold , and antibiotics can be effective against those things which could otherwise still kill you!

- which is all I said.      😷

Frankly no you didn't. "Antibiotics are useless against a virus" - as I  explained they are not useless even if they don't attack the virus directly.

Then there was "perhaps you could try the Dettol ? !"  a reference to the usual anti-trump propaganda that deliberately manipulated the video of a White House Press Conference to embarrass Trump. So you really didn't only say it wasn't effective against the virus itself at all. No need to reply, I've done wasting my breath!

They're used to  treat bacterial infections, and there overuse risks them becoming ineffective.    😷   We're now being told that there are a range of existing drugs used for autoimmune disorders, that are proving resistant to the virus .   😷

I was going to tell a Coronavirus joke but decided against it - 99.5% of you won't get it.
