And what Starmer doesn't even mention is that a lot of people you'd never expect (like the Chaos Computer Club, all kind of privacy advocates, various IT experts, all the people who normally wouldn't touch a government app with a barge pole) are all pretty much praising the app, saying it does most things right (within the technical constraints) and recommend to download it

Biological Warfare Expert Explains Why You Should Never Get In A Las Vegas Pool | IFLScience

A specialist in biological and chemical warfare has explained why he believes you should never get in a Las Vegas pool, and it's a rollercoaster.
Author Dan Kaszeta began his career as a Chemical Officer in the US Army. He then became a defense contractor, working with the Pentagon on chemical and biological proliferation issues. His career spans historical research for the USA's decommissioned chemical and biological weapons programs to training on live nerve agents.
Basically he's got the kind of C.V. that if he says "don't go in that pool" you don't get in that pool.

Coronavirus came to UK 'on at least 1,300 separate occasions' | BBC News

Coronavirus was brought into the UK on at least 1,300 separate occasions, a major analysis of the genetics of the virus shows.
The study, by the Covid-19 Genomics UK consortium (Cog-UK), completely quashes the idea that a single "patient zero" started the whole UK outbreak.
The analysis also finds China, where the pandemic started, had a negligible impact on cases in the UK.
Instead those initial cases came mostly from European countries.

Now that's reassuring. Everything is just fine. And I'm sure the app (if ever released) will work without a hitch as well. We're safe. The government has everything under control.

The training for the government's track and trace system is brilliant

Recovered COVID-19 patients test positive but not infectious, data finds | Ars Technica

People who recover from COVID-19 but test positive for the virus again days or weeks later are not shedding viral particles and are not infectious, according to data released Tuesday by the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Another choir story.

Coronavirus doctor's diary: The strange case of the choir that coughed in January | BBC Health


The writer, Prof John Wright, is a medical doctor and
head of the Bradford Institute for Health Research, and a veteran of cholera, HIV and Ebola epidemics in sub-Saharan Africa.
He's also an epidemiologist, which is:
a medical detective, and like all detectives, the three key clues we are looking for are always: person, place and time.

So when I got an email out of the blue from a Bradford resident saying that she and her friends may have been infected with Covid-19 in January - nearly two months before the first confirmed case of transmission in the UK - I looked for these clues and decided to investigate further.

Coronavirus: Scientists hail 'groundbreaking' discovery of antibody which prevents infection | Science & Tech News | Sky News

Scientists have discovered an antibody which prevents the coronavirus from infecting human cells in "groundbreaking research" which could lead to the development of new treatments.

Building on research into the SARS coronavirus, scientists from Utrecht University in the Netherlands, as well as the Erasmus Medical Centre and the company Harbour BioMed (HBM), have identified a potential method of neutralising COVID-19.

They discovered that an antibody which prevents the SARS virus from infecting human cells could also block the novel coronavirus from infecting human cells too, according a peer reviewed study published on Monday in the journal Nature Communications.

I don't know, I'm not sure it has just yet. The tabloids and the right wind press of Murdoch and Co will find ways to blame the failures on others and explain some of it away with "different circumstances" (I've already seen some excuses using population density, which they can then also nicely link to those ghastly immigrants). Then there's all the patriotic VE Day stuff coming up, where I've seen plenty support with "let's celebrate VE Day social distancing style in our front gardens" already. Unless Starmer really hits the ground running and can really do some damage to the Tories I fear there's still quite some steam left in Johnson and his crew.

The British charlatan style has been sent packing by too much reality

Coronavirus: Hospital cuts COVID-19 death rates with 'black boxes' for sleep disorder | UK News | Sky News

Medics fighting COVID-19 in a hospital in Cheshire seem to have cut mortality rates and improved the chances of a quick recovery from the virus by adapting breathing machines normally used for a sleeping disorder.

I can't help wondering how many of these people will be in hospital in 2-3 weeks. Or dead. While blaming the "libtards".

Kind of a bookmark for the next time I see some privileged middle class person from the comfort of their spacious home with a nice garden complaining about the people who dare to leave their homes to go to a park, saying, "just stay home, it's that simple".

Cramped living conditions may be accelerating UK spread of coronavirus

Somehow I've got a hunch there will be "Corona Parties" in plenty pubs, restaurants etc up and down the country tonight. A last big piss up before the pubs close and they have to stay home.

And in a week or two we will see an explosion of Coronavirus cases.

Tim Martin will have some explaining to do.

It's obviously a price worth paying. And voters knew what they were voting for. Also sovereignty is more important than surviving.
