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.

Dinosaurus? Certainly neither fish nor fowl...


As the tragedy of the pandemic became clear Prof Ferrari says he pushed for a special programme directed at combating Covid-19, with the world's best scientists having the resources to fight it with new drugs, vaccines, diagnostic tools and behavioural approaches based on sciences "to replace the oft-improvised intuitions of political leaders".

His proposals were rejected unanimously, he said, by the council's governing body because the ERC funded "bottom-up" research proposed by scientists themselves and did not see the beneficial impact on society as a justification for funding.

Corona Virus on 08:22 - Apr 8 by Highjack

I read an article by a woman called Dr Hilary Jones and she said one of the main reasons for this illness being particularly dangerous is because it triggers a response called a Cytokine storm. Basically because we’ve all been exposed so some sort of lesser coronavirus in the past our body sort of knows how to deal with it but not quite, therefore releases far too many cytokines which causes inflammation which is particularly dangerous around the lung area.

It’s believed this is what is causing young, healthy people to die, according to this Hilary bird.


I think this is a well know theory from the 1918 flu pandemic, 80ish years on RNA taken from the dead allowed reproduction of that virus, and in animal experimentation :( the virus was quite clearly observed to produce the Cytokine storm and death. It seems the less agile immune systems offers less protection and v.healthy immune systems can kill you. But with all the other variables v.possibly far from that simple.

That is what I was referring to in this post on 15th March..

What ended the 1918 flu pandemic (that is said to have infected around a third of the worlds population and estimated to have killed between 40 to 100 million)?

Of course the war and different social, economic and scientific conditions existed in 1918, but in the longer term it was unrepresentatively the stronger younger healthy adults that succumbed, Their bodies overloaded by the strength of the reaction of their robust immune systems

This could also be the reason why very young people (babies and toddlers) are less affected - as their immune systems are less developed and so produce lower levels of inflammation-driving cytokines.

One of the subjects I teach is microbial pathogenesis to vets and biologists-disease during infection is either the result of a bug causing damage through a toxin or altering the function of host cells and tissues or the immune response causing damage (usually inflammation) in responding to infection.

Generally if you are young with a naive immune system or old when your immune systems loses function (immunosenescence) then there is increased likelihood of infection. However pathology or damage can be lower in infants as they have less inflammatory function even if the produce cytokines (and chemokines). A classical example is the protozoan parasite Leishmania which leads to both skin and visceral damage caused by inflammation. This does not happen in young kids so nomadic aran tribes traditionally left babies buttocks bare to allow them to be bitten by the carrier, the sandfly, leading to a small lesion but protective immunity.

Cytokine storms are the main drivers of mortality in sepsis and it seems likely in Covid19 such a response to bacteria also present in the lungs is a big part of whether there is progression of disease in the under 70s. It may be that having a better regulatory immune response that controls inflammation is also important.

so yes-in essence this is very plausible

There is also a suggestion that while China was covering up how bad things really were, they were covertly buying up medical supplies.

Assume that's true, what can be done? Could Europe succesfully sue China?

Leishmania sounds like a temporary form of insanity that affects football club chairmen when considering appointing a useless Scottish manager.

Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f*cking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.

Prof (or anyone else) what do you think of the reports of humans passing the virus on to animals, and (original pandemic initiation event aside) the potential for the reverse?

It has been said that there is no evidence of them (or other animals they may infect) passing it back to humans (however WHO reported a similar thing about human to human transmission).

It seems logical to me (but obviously not a given) that if we can infect animals, with exactly the same virus, then they can return the favour, even if only by stroking them.

it has been reported that a high viral load has been found in the faeces of infected animals (of course a not unreported transmission route with other viruses, especially when aerosolised for e.g. through flushing and via faulty U bends).

When cutting my lawn a couple of weeks ago with a my petrol mower I sliced up up a partially desiccated cat turd, which I could smell strongly, so something was reaching my nose, and presumably the violent slicing would have caused aerosolisation of the cat turd to some extent.

Quite seriously do you think infection back from animals, a potential transmission route? Do you think it appropriate to dismiss this route through lack of evidence, when it is very unlikely that any evidence of this could be provided, given currently it would be almost impossible to say how anyone infected was infected?

I think it’s incredibly sexist to assume she’s a man just because she’s a doctor.
