Who loves ya, baby?
Thanks. I've already been in once and the doctor I saw wasn't even wearing a mask and gloves...
Obviously anyone who enters a care home only ever leaves one way, but I think an important fact that often gets missed is that there's a big difference between dying relatively peacefully and painlessly with your kids and maybe grandkids there to comfort you, and drowning in your own snot while not allowed to see anyone.met a few friends recently for 'social distancing' chats in the park. one of them said to me that they never talk about the age profiles for the deaths, but it's ridiculously skewed towards over 60s. i know i already knew this, we all know this, but you lose sight... so over the last few days, i've seen loads of young people being really blase about everything. or maybe they're not, but i just think they are. eg saw a load of kids playing basketball and then we went wild swimming and loads were sunbathing together. and then my other mate said quietly about how he couldn't understand why people were so bothered about the care homes... 'they all wanna die in there anyway'
Worst chat-up line ever.Chance of a random <50 yr old in the UK dying of COVID after kissing the next bystander in the street: c. 1 in 12,000,000:
1/1000 (community prevalence, ONS) x 1/2000 (<50 y.o. IFR, CDC) x 1/2 (probability kisser being already immune) x 1/3 (prob of the bystander being out and about if infected)
Ah yes, apologies, I forgot about that. One single study that involved 20 subjects which indicates that previous exposure to some corona viruses, could possibly produce T Cells, which could, possibly have some immune effect against Covid 19, a result that has not yet been replicated anywhere else afaik.Au contraire, mon frere: https://www.cell.com/action/showPdf?pii=S0092-8674(20)30610-3
"Importantly, we detected SARS-CoV-2-reactive CD4+T cells in40%–60% of unexposed individuals, suggesting cross-reactive T cell recognition between circulating ‘‘common cold’’ coronaviruses and SARS-CoV-2. "
