Sorry for new thread,
But how bad do you lot reckon it’s going to get here in the UK?
I just been watching the news. Looking nasty in Italy.

My methods are not favoured by some but by god i speak the truth.
Poll: What Happened Today???

I am sure most of us understand elementary maths and logic and did not need to attend medical school (all respect to those who did) to attain that knowledge. so perhaps someone can explain to me given

1. As I have previously said It is well documented that a cough can reach 6 metres and a sneeze 8 metres (information also in line with current MIT research on droplet and aerosol dispersion)

2. It is reported that COVID-19 has a high viral load in the throat in early stages and accepted that this is spread by droplet infection such as that projected by coughing and talking and even breathing

Why do WHO only recommend a 1 metre social distance


And even if you were observing a 2 metre social distance and a small droplet from someone’s cough caught you in the mouth what would yo prefer

1. That that person had in the first place been using a mouth covering of any sort to prevent an unexpected cough potentially infecting surfaces and others

2. If 1 not applicable, that you had been wearing a mask of any sort rather than it going straight in your mouth

Or do you think that there is no problem because a 6 metre cough cannot cross a social distance of 2 metres because of the force field it creates


Of course there are the issues of fitting and handling and supply of masks whilst not depriving the medics. But as one masked doctor at the coal face said, it is not in here that is dangerous it is out there.


Of course despite WHO insisting it is not airborne there is evidence that it is to some extent and with a considerable persistence. Now this is not me making up an experiment with my Mr Sheen, this is from evidence from people who have looked into this and have spent all the years studying in their fields (not farmers). In which case P3 masks would be needed to protect from aerosol (as was recommended by WHO for specific aerosol generating procedures in hospital). However as said owt is better than nowt.

Expert and infallible 2 different things as witnessed by (the not unsurprising) conflicting opinions and evidence from amongst them

When you say excluded many individuals from the trial does that mean he left out the patients whose results didn't match what he was arguing for?

The bit about controls, I am nowhere near an expert but I have always believed you have to have the proper controls to validate results, without controls the results are ambiguous, is that right?

AFD says that Raoult is trying to save lives but taking short cuts in these things, in my limited knowledge, could cost more lives. We need treatments that save as many as possible, not quick fixes that may cost lives needlesslybecause they were rushed. Something lacking controls, it seems to me is taking a shortcut.

Just my poorly informed opinion.


I believe, but cannot know that his decision to try it was based on previous trials in Korea and China.

Whoa now, can't talk about reading on here. Haven't you heard that only frauds and posers on internet forums do research? The experts just know everything automatically and should be deferred to blindly, even when loads of them are disagreeing with each other all across the globe.

I believe I said that many could have lived 5-10 years with their conditions, far from all. I suspect a good proportion would have died within 6 months, but others lived much longer. Equally I think that was an 'off the cuff' remark intended to show in most cases it is not fatal.


Do you know what the percentage of people who have no underlying health issues and who have died as a direct consequence on Coronavirus ?

Base it on? excuse my ignorance but if those trials are succesful shouldn't they be replicated not based on?

Regardless, without proper controls the results are surely flawed?

Experts can disagree on many things but surely most of them will agree that trials have to be done properly? Those that don't agree this, are they the ones that get discredited?

Don't get me wrong AFD, there are things you've posted that I agree with but when it comes to the science of it I'll be listening to Professor first and if that turns out to be wrong then it's my fault.

Just my opinion, but WTF do I know anyway?

No one does. It also depends what you mean by direct. The evidence coming from the virologists in my department is that much of the mortality is due to secondary bacterial infections but this is entirely facilitated by the virus. This makes sense when compared to other animal coronavirus infections like IBV in the chicken. Clearly both the virus and bacterial secondary infection are likely to cause problems not anyone already ill, such as Eddie Large sadly, but there are clearly cases where there is not. I suspect we will on know fully from retrospective studies

That forum that I frequent (which everybody rubbishes) has videos and links 2 making your own mask if you can't buy one, as they are doing in the Czech Republic.
Some have been very inventive, including for instance using part of a vacuum cleaner bag, which is a very good filter.
An outer layer made of material from an Umbrella and hence is waterproof.
Wire adjuster for fit to the nostrils.

All of which must be miles better than S.F.A.

Very lucky indeed when they are considering taking over 75s off ventilators to free them up for younger people, great timing for him.

When they were in Iraq & Afghanistan they needed plenty of them, not so much now though.
They also have some of the best medics and Surgeons in the world where trauma is concerned.

Eddie Large and the bloke who did that “Stacey’s Mom” song both killed by coronavirus today.

Were the ones in China done properly, who knows.
But they still printed their results so that the world knew that some medicines help.
He may have directly copied them, so may the Americans in New York, the problem is we have no way of knowing for sure.
Most people dying of COVID19 offered the choice of Paracetamol or an anti- malarial that might work or an unproven antviral that might work are likely not to choose Paracetamol.

Also, it seems that Ferguson is saying than on average there around 600,000 deaths in the U.K. each year, and that the Coronavirus won’t really effect that average 600 k number. It’s about not overwhelming the nhs over a short space of time.

So he also seems to be saying that lives overall won’t be saved but it’s important to have the deaths spread out over a longer period of time as I’ve already said so the nhs won’t be overwhelmed.

Yes seen some of them, some good patterns too for better face fitting

Vac bags look good for filters. don’t know if they are P3 standard.

A word of warning, I person showing how to make these slip in filters for the washable homemade masks and someone mentioned that the material she was using (taken from folded filter inside a new air vent) contained fibreglass which if correct would be very bad for lungs. This needs to be carefully controlled.

They're not likely to choose anything they know won't work but choosing an unproven and not properly trialled and tested medicine could be dangerous too.

It's not like dangerous medicines (or medical advice) haven't been put out before.

Largely, though without intervention we could have seen a lot more. It's certainly not like a smallpox or the 1918 flu.

Apart from the anti-viral remdesivir the others have been around for many years and are taken by millions of people all over the world every year.
So "dangerous medicines" they are not, they have very well known side affects that have to be taken note of, but that is what doctors do when treating patients.
