  1. The tech has really come on a pace the last few years making things a lot quicker is what they are saying.
  2. Some good news. Some treatments already in phase 1 testing. https://www.forbes.com/sites/alexknapp/2020/03/13/coronavirus-drug-update-the-latest-info-on-pharmaceutical-treatments-and-vaccines/#6dddcc1e21db Moderna Cambridge, MA-based biotech startup Moderna has developed a potential mRNA vaccine against COVID-19. The vaccine was developed in collaboration with scientists at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. The vaccine works by getting the immune system to develop antibodies against a “spike protein” found on the virus. A batch of the vaccine has been manufact
  3. From what I can make of it heavy smokers and people with compromised immune response (mainly the older ones) are most at risk. So it seems (for now).
  4. No. 2020 is pretty much written off. 12 months from now would likely be miraculous. They've had some success in China with HIV drugs and anti-inflammatory drugs. The HIV drugs cuts down the virus ability to multiply in the body or some-such...I'm not a scientist. The things that Labs are currently trying to speed through some use the SARS platform (from a few years ago) which saves a lot of time afaik.
  5. Trump is deffo high risk with his burger diet and fatness. Plus he has the kind of hair that attracts the virus.
  6. Save us Troll ffs! Have a look at licorice root.
  7. If this goes bad a lot of people are going to die that's all you need to know. It's only just begun in the UK and the Govt. have not really done anything for two months. Herd immunity is a massive gambit imo.
  8. Darpa the military hi tech contractor is working on 'B' cell sequencing from recovered patients to make something they can give us to boost the immune system. Short of a vaccine they say this might be a possible holding mechanism (3 months away). Troll might be able to tell us what this means or is.
  9. Yeah he put my mind at ease a bit the other day after I came on here straight from scary articles.
  10. Did a cheeky trip to the steakhouse last night and then saw Parasite with the family. Sat away from everyone in the restaurant even though they said, 'that area is closed'. Same MO in the cinema (there was literally 20 people in there). It's definitely in the air conditioning filtration systems at these kinds of places but getting it from that you have to be pretty unlucky as they are mixed with outside air. Bit of research had revealed that most airlines have hepa filters on their flights which I don't know the science behind it should be good enough (unless your sitting next to a super
  11. The Govt. are reacting in slow motion. Sickening to watch.
  12. Just ordered some masks from Amazon. I now they are of negligible benefit but I need to be doing something....Anything!!
  13. If I could get away with self quarantine on my own to get away from the wife and kids, I would, even if it meant getting the virus for real Bring it on, I’ve had fucking man flu! This is proper wind up material.
  14. People that come over to my place have to take their shoes off outside and wash their hands with a hospital grade sanitizer. I've had this protocol in place for a month now. Think most people have been thinking about defensive measures for a few weeks now. It shocked me when Bojo said the other day in a carefree manner that, ''I suppose it will go through our society, I don't want to take any draconian measures''. Fat fucking donkey that he is.
  15. Yeah that was a mistake. Should be paying more attention to the phrases with something like this. Apologies. Been reading so much on it the last couple of weeks scared meself.
