Report from US: Misinformation costing lives.


This is heart breaking, infuriating and sad report from the US where victims of Trump, Fox and other bastards don't believe in the COVID19 virus and dying while still denying it.

I am sure Biden and the DNC are not strong enough to go after these criminals who caused this pandemic to become such a disaster.

No, it's not the leak about a potential lockdown causing a spike in cases. It's not the announcement of a lockdown causing a spike in cases. It's not an upcoming lockdown causing a spike in cases. It's unthinking, egoistic, careless people causing a spike in cases. It's people saying, "oh, there's a lockdown coming, let's go out and party while we can to give the virus the best possible opportunity to spread rapidly before we go into lockdown!" This spike was completely and utterly predictable, you just had to look at the news on the day the lockdown began: page after page after page of pictures of "people enjoying a last night of freedom before the lockdown"

T-cell Covid immunity 'present in adults six months after first infection' | World news | The Guardian

Cellular (T-cell) immunity against the virus that causes Covid-19 is likely to be present within most adults six months after primary infection, with levels considerably higher in patients with symptoms, a study suggests.
The data offers another piece of the puzzle that could be key to understanding whether previous Sars-CoV-2 infections – the virus behind Covid-19 – can prevent reinfection, and if so, for how long.

OK, I'm going to get my prediction in early, here's some of what I expect to happen (in England, as the devolved governments have their own rules) over the next couple of months:
  • some kind of "lockdown" with more holes (exceptions) than a Swiss cheese from Thursday
  • pubs, restaurants and non-essential shops busy until "lockdown" kicks in, as people want to use their "last chance"
  • numbers will go down a bit towards the end of November and into early December
  • government will proclaim it a success and announce a "ceasefire" or "truce" for Christmas where people can visit their families in order to "save Christmas"
  • the virus will still not understand or know what a "ceasefire" or "truce" is and happily continue doing what it does best: infecting and making people ill, or even killing them
  • in January numbers will start to rise again, first calls for another "lockdown" will be made. Which the government will ignore. Track & Trace still not working
  • by the end of February another "lockdown" is announced
(and that's ignoring the mess that Brexit will bring, deal or no-deal, as nobody has the time & resources to prepare for it during lockdown)

#UK #England #Brexit #politics #Coronavirus #Covid19 #pandemic #government #lockdown
 
The government will hold their press conference about the expected lockdown at ~~16:00~~, ~~17:00~~, ~~18:30~~.......

Anyone surprised their handling of the pandemic is such a mess?

The airborne lifetime of small speech droplets and their potential importance to SARS-CoV-2 transmission | Zenodo

Movies that show the experimental setup and the full 85-minute observation of speech droplet nuclei.

The full movie recording of highly sensitive laser light scattering observations that indicate loud-speaking generates, in addition to hundreds of regular droplets, also many thousands of micro-droplets per second. This movie clip shows the decay of airborne particles.

Masks offer much more protection against coronavirus than many think | Los Angeles Times

There’s a common refrain that masks don’t protect you; they protect other people from your own germs, which is especially important to keep unknowingly infected people from spreading the coronavirus.
But now, there’s mounting evidence that masks also protect you.
If you’re unlucky enough to encounter an infectious person, wearing any kind of face covering will reduce the amount of virus that your body will take in.

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.

Ignore the conspiracy theories: scientists know Covid-19 wasn't created in a lab

The area of Wales that missed coronavirus - and the simple system it set up


One big difference that sets #Ceredigion apart was that even before it had recorded its first case of Covid-19, it had set up a "homemade" in-house test track and trace system.

The man behind it, Barry Rees, the corporate director for Ceredigion Council, is a scientist by training. He believes contact tracing is the only way of "pursuing the #disease then rather than following it".

Is this the reason for why the county has emerged unscathed? Has a simple contact tracing system saved hundreds of lives?

Quote of note:

"...Michele Usuelli, a doctor and regional councillor for the small, leftwing party, Più Europa, pins much of the blame on politics and healthcare mismanagement. He said Lombardy’s fate began to be charted out in the late 1990s when the Italian government decentralised healthcare, giving regions more autonomy."

"At the same time, the privatisation of healthcare became more prevalent. Although other regions continued to mostly maintain the public health system, a succession of Lombardy governors, including Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia between 1995 and 2013, and Matteo Salvini’s far-right League since then, allowed the private and public systems to compete for funds based on efficiency."

"Even though Lombardy developed one of the most enviable healthcare systems in Italy, the strategy left private firms free to invest in areas of care that made more money, inevitably leading to a reduction of beds in the public system and leaving the region less equipped to meet all types of health needs."

Via Why was Lombardy hit harder than Italy's other regions?

I thought the Times/Sunday Times was a Johnson supporting paper and would be singing his praises and how he was a leader and took one for the team?

Coronavirus: 38 days when Britain sleepwalked into disaster
Boris Johnson skipped five Cobra meetings on the virus, calls to order protective gear were ignored and scientists’ warnings fell on deaf ears. Failings in February may have cost thousands of lives

BREAKING: The entire UK strategy for fighting #coronavirus was based on false analysis. Scientists advising the Gov’t now say the UK only realised "in the last few days" that its Coronavirus strategy would "likely result In hundreds of thousands of deaths"


This reminds me of an old British TV show.

Johnson has turned comedy into reality with unimaginable consequences for the lives and safety of the citizens!

Norway Is Closed: PM Takes Drastic Measures to Stop Coronavirus


The Norwegian Prime Minister announced the most drastic set of measures ever seen outside of wartime in an attempt to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Millions of Norwegians and foreigners living in or visiting Norway will be impacted by a drastic set of measures announced by Erna Solberg today. Norway is essentially shutting itself down for two weeks, in a bid to stop the rapid spread of the coronavirus and COVID-19 disease.
