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

    So am i right in thinking Trump is giving everyone a grand to tie them over until this dies down?

    That wouldn't even cover half my months wages.

    i believe so.  My post was more related to the response below that   which i found amusing  and at the same time tragic.

    There does certainly seem to be growing evidence that excessive nicotine consumption can promote cardiovascular and pulmonary conditions. Mostly due to a downregulation of ACE2 receptors and impairment of RAS homeostasis

    I am largely of the opinion however, that the risk is quite low with nominal consumption. And I would also believe that nicotine may exacerbate already present conditions such as hypertension and lung diseases, and not directly cause them. Honestly, there are many harmful substances that are MUCH more damaging than Nicotine.

    It is very good that you are giving your time and advice from the apparent experience you have. But would it not be better to start a new thread “Ailments I know and love”?  There seems to be too many on here caught up with their own preexisting ailments.  
     

    We all have medical conditions but not all us go round and round in circles trying to discuss them with a crowd of strangers.

    I would much prefer this thread to be good information about the spread of this virus and not a huge speculation drama  shop by those who are not qualified to make pronouncements about medical conditions.

    It looks very desolate at school today. About 400 people at my school were absent yesterday.

    1,890 new cases of coronavirus and 25 new deaths according to BNO. Deaths wise it's a significant drop compared with yesterday morning when they announced 149.

     

    10 days ago they had 674 cases, so over 20x increase in 10 days! Quite the rate of increase.

    If there are concerns about you or loved ones dial 111, look at NHS websites and seek professional advice.

    Good point. I was only answering questions I was being asked, I am not so rude as to ignore them. 

    I do appreciate this is about Covid however, so I agree, we should stay on topic.

    Yes you seem very keen to help, which all appreciate.

     On topic, as far as possible, would be good.

    Always the BBC website for that mate.

    I personally like the fact this thread basically encompasses all facets of the pandemic. I'm learning things all the time about the economy and biology and all-sorts while at the same time receiving positive encouragement from people regarding my anxiety. It's great! If we were unable to speculate, the thread would be largely empty and pointless. 

    I do agree some posters, myself included, make the odd hyperbole/dramatic post, but i'm trying to keep that to a minimum.

    Dramatic and extremely regular  posts day in and day out.  I am getting fed up with wading through page after page of posts that have little to do with coronavirus.  Speculation is good but it shouldn’t be to the detriment of the rest of the thread. If you can’t see that I am sorry.

    35 is very young, honestly. You are well within the 0.1-0.2% CFR range. This virus prays on the over 60's, mostly.
    Even as a smoker (tut tut, try vaping) you will be absoutely fine I am sure. Just practice good hygiene. If you get it, then so be it. Most of us will.

    Try not to be anxious over things you largely have no control over.

    Wouldn't Vaping be just as bad where this virus is concerned, after all, you are physically breathing high levels of moisture into your lungs, which would already be having difficulty with fluid retention due to the infection?

    Quite agree. Tip of the iceberg.

    I know I keep emphasizing this point, but the government MUST ensure everyone is protected financially through this suffering. The last thing we want as a result of this is a repeat of the 2008 recession. It is the self-employed that I worry about most. We keep hearing of employees being protected, but never anything about the self-employed. The self-employed make up a large sector of our country and are vital to economic growth/stability. And while I have heard murmurings of rents being covered, does this only apply to council rent? Because we absolutely must consider those that rent privately too. I am sure landlords will not tolerate being not paid rent for weeks/months. How will these be subsidized?

    So many things of concern.

    It's remarkable that Germany has so few apparent deaths in relation to the number of cases (Q: Are the case #s really accurate then?). It really sticks out among Spain, France & the USA.

    They have the best equipped health system in Europe; 25000-28000 respiratory machines in their health service. Major world manufacturer of them is German; German govt have ordered another 10,000. I posted some details on here the other day.

    I thought social distancing also included over 70s ?

    My word, just seen Spain's new cases overnight and this morning:

    Up 1890!

    That would probably put it around Italy's level if we extrapolate that for the rest of the day (as Spain updates throughout the day) probably going to be a 3,000 plus day there. Hopefully Italy finally sees a fall today rather than another day of 3000+. Because we need some good news from somewhere!

    It's going to get a lot worse before it starts getting better. We build up some herd immunity or develop some sort of therapy

    Just popped to out local tesco express for my regular Daily Mail? and there were two mums in there, with their school age kids running amok (i was tempted to trip one of them up). So, taking them out of school which is still open behind my house, and then deciding to take them out into a shop full of people. 

    Twisted logic there, esp as one of the adults could've looked after them all, whilst other numpty vicki pollard could've done the shopping.

    You should consider that there are many factors that could determine the outcome of this virus. Not just the virus itself. Many other conditions can greatly affect the presentation in different people. Talking about Diabetes etc may seem off-topic, but it absolutely will come into play with this virus.

    Don't get me wrong, when we go down the route of talking about ACE2 etc it is maybe getting a little technical, and we should ration that, but most posts have been informative.

    I am trying to keep a fine balance between talking directly about the virus, and things that could come into play with it. It's all research. I do agree however that I shall stop talking about conditions that relate to individuals and stop trying to give advice. I have been very cautious about giving advice that should be given by their own GP, and don't think I have overstepped that mark, but I shall stop it from now

    what I really want to know is who ends up needing intensive care. According to the news in the Netherlands half IC patients are apparently younger than 50 and previously in good health but is that really true? Are they overweight, smokers, do they exercise etc. etc

    Stoke-on-Trent still has no reported cases (well other than the 2 that were brought in from elsewhere to the Infectious Diseases Unit at Hartshill, but as far as I'm concerned they don't count).

    Lloyds TSB in Andover had 2 employees test positive for Covid-19 on friday (a big open plan office of about 100-150 workers). They closed the office over the weekend for a clean but have now re-opened and forced staff to come back in - despite i'm guessing a fair few of them having had contact with the infected workers.

     

    Is that right?
