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

    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.

    Wonderful offer of support from postal workers who have voted to become an extra emergency service . 

    Helping with prescriptions , and keeping an eye on people who are vulnerable and who  might become isolated .

    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. 

    Stay at home safest place and don`t watch the news every day.

    This reminds me of foot and mouth disease in sheep back in 2001 we`ve got sheep starting lambing soon.

    Neighbours animals were slaughtered in mid april 2001.

    Since the New Year i've stopped drinking anything alcoholic Monday to Wednesday inclusive. My wife and I were on a semi-health kick ahead of our planned 8 weeks in Fuerteventura. Now that's been canned, and after last night's bombshell Imperial College report, i was severely tempted this evening to ditch the early part of week abstention. However, i resisted.

Another fun day tomorrow.

    Same in my place mate. Running ourselves into the ground for people who have zero respect or empathy for us. Sad thing is we'll get no recognition for it when all said and done, financial or otherwise.

    All whilst those cushy office types sit on their arses at home on full pay, self isolating.

    Much respect for retail workers during this difficult period, don't get the recognition you guys deserve and you are literally working yourselves into the ground and being shouted at by rude customers.

    Couple of Asda employee's were over the moon at 7.30am this morning as they were closing early to re-stock.

    Considering the mammoth profits the supermarkets are going to make, i hope they value their staff

    Funny world , A few retailers have some grovelling to do to their staff , They were supposed to cut management jobs and steam line due to a changing world , But eh now they really need them !!! . Not that it will matter but a few might use this time wisely to switch a go to a more responsible retailer should the prospect present itself .
