Big respect to the local shops, the small retailers and the Indian / sikh community for their contribution and help towards the elderly and vulnerable up and down the country.

I wonder how significant this could be in the short term. Potentially a significant breakthrough if it works Coronavirus: New treatment for critically ill patients to begin as soon as next week

An appeal to people to remember you are reading posts from people you do not know, you do not know the background of and do not know their motivations - on a weather forum.  If there are concerns

    Stress related Asthma most likely and the air is also fairly dry which doesn't help. So hopefully you'll wake up tomorrow with zero coughs.

    Quite possibly, if its still here tomorrow morning then it will be something else other than that asthma cough. For now that seems the most likely culprit though rather than coronavirus, the only thing giving me pause is I have had some contact with someone who has since displayed classic symptoms.

    Keep us posted, hope those pesky school children haven't contaminated you!! 

    Mind you, I've never been so paranoid about my health. Every time something seems a little odd with me I'm thinking "Have I got it?" And when I'm feeling fine, I'm thinking "Am I one of the lucky ones who's got it with no symptoms?" Such a bizarre virus! 

    Well I was most of last week with a knee injury. I think if I have got something, I have a pretty good idea where it has come from!

    But your right, whenever I've coughed I though maybe, but then brushed it away. This is the first time though I've seriously considered it.

    To be honest, I'd rather have it now, as it would make life easier down the line.

    A lot being said about the state of our supermarkets, perhaps now is the time for those hoarders and selfish gits to think of others!! Come on guys... Anyone reading this as a guest or a lurker and is guilty of mass panic buying.... This is not nuclear war, where we will be in a bunker for 12 months due to radiation... Then I could understand the mass loo roll buying, there would be a few sore backsides I would imagine. I went to sainsbury yesterday at 2.30pm...there delivery was at 2pm...here are some of the shelfs half hour later... Get a grip please. 

    And last but not least, the 1st person to treat herself like guinee pig for human trials of the vaccine... Your a star ma'am, you deserve a knighthood for putting yourself on the line.

    Quite an uptick in the number of people wearing face masks around London today. Unfortunately - most are those thin surgical masks and some people have also started wrapping scarfs around their faces: WTF? 

    Folks, please don't waste your time/money with covering your mouth/nose unless your mask has a decent filter. Viruses are TINY. They can fit through the holes of your scarf and those surgical masks. 

    Oh and don't get me started on those surgical latex gloves people are starting to wear on the tube (..while constantly touching their face and their phones). Arrrgghh! ?

    I second this. The staff at Sainsburys almost looked embarrassed that the bread and veg aisles were literally stripped bare.

    who needs all this stuff? People panic buying are literally making a crisis ten times worse. There’s no reason for it

    Oh no I've developed a cough over the last couple of hours. I'm hoping its just an asthmatic cough that I do sometimes get when seasons are changing (I am somewhat prone in Spring in particular) however if it carries on much longer I may be into self isolation. We will see!

    OH is exactly the same this evening. Took his antihistamine that usually controls it but didn't work. So on to the blue asthma inhaler which took a while to work but he's finally feeling better. As you say, allergies start to ramp up now. Hope you get better.

    Interesting comment from the Chief Scientific Advisor regarding risk factors for developing the more severe phase of this disease ARDS. Old age and co-morbidities are well known, but he also said there is evidence that initial dose of virus that you are exposed to is a risk factor. This would go some way to explaining why young healthcare workers have had a disproportionally higher amount of severe cases compared to the general population.

     

    *this is just speculation from me so don't take it seriously* I think this also gives credence to the theory that ibuprofen can make the disease worse. If you're upregulating the receptor that the virus attaches to then that could mean you receive a higher dose of virus.

    It is realy difficult to have faith in UK government advice when only 5 days ago they recommended that people over 70 should avoid cruises !

    Now they have U-turned and gone from 'Herd Immunity' to lockdown

    Valuable days were wasted by there indecision

    Most people knew Cheltenham should have been cancelled

    In the previous briefing they used the excuse of the WHO decalaration of pandemic to change course

    Valuable days were wasted and many of us will pay with our lives

    This panic buying is crazy. I can understand some of it with people perhaps working from home and maybe need loo rolls and food that would otherwise normally be at work but the excessive hoarding is rediculous.

    This country is going down the pan....morally...

    think of others, your neighbours, the elderly, the vulnerable....

    so many are just stockpiling and being greedy.... 

    the mind boggles.... life is precious...commodities seem more so

    stop buying everything so the rest can buy something When we go out once a week

    tomorrow is another day.... think people think of others

    Most orders are made automatically at places like Tesco, I’m not sure why your blaming the store managers for customers behaving like they are retarded.
