Re: Coronavirus

The Lancet has corrected Donald Trump's claims in his letter to the World Health Organization.
The journal states that the allegation that the WHO “consistently ignored credible reports of the virus spreading in Wuhan in early December 2019 or even earlier, including reports from The Lancet medical journal was incorrect as the the first reports the journal published were only on January 24, 2020.

The nursing home my mum is in has no visitors either.

My mum is in her 5th week there, but she hasn't been able to leave her room as she is bed ridden and has sores.



But soon they will put her into a chair and take her to the group area, she will be able to eat there.

Re: Coronavirus

Thinking of all those people hit by Cyclone Amphan. Not only have to cope with regular poverty and health now have Covid and then a big storm. Social distancing is hard if you live 10 to a shack, share water supply and live centimetres from your neighbour, imagine you are now evacuated with 500,000 others.
And we are soon approaching hurricane season, that will affect Caribbean and maybe parts of US.

Re: Coronavirus

Middlesbrough is one of the ten areas apparently for contact tracing to be tested.


This should be fun....

If it turns out to be wildly successful they are going to regret calling it the Donald Trump drug.

That's what I said to Mrs DaveeB, if it turns out well he's a genius, if it all goes wrong he was being "sarcastic" again as with Bleachgate..

Nah they will start calling it Plaquenil (its brand name) and say it is a decade old drug recommended by the WHO to treat Malaria and just forget it is the same substance.

If it works the majority of the credit would go to those who originally suggested it would help. Trump would certainly be able to say he was there early on though

That said it's one of many treatments being tested and people should be wary of medical advice from the guy who wondered if we could look into injecting bleach.
