Re: More British OAPs to be exposed to a horrible death

I think it is more than just equipping and training staff. The last wave's data strongly suggested that key spreaders were: 1. mixing within the establishment - so physical isolation of the facilities is required and I would suggest that is a lot more than a locked door or a door with a "no entry" s...

Re: American elections

It's a good point but it just needs to be credible rather than true given the lack of time for a defence or rebuttal to be made.

Re: American elections

I seem to remember that last time, in the last few days, Trump or his allies disclosed the Hilary email scandal - with no opportunity for her to make a robust defence. This time they have dirt on Bidon's son................... I really hope it doesn't turn out the same. One point against a late swin...

Re: Possibility of a selective lockdown by age group?

Although the virus has several mutations - hardly surprising since it will have multiplied thousands of billions of times and that is how evolution works - there is no signs yet of any major change in the structure. This is unlike the flu virus. That could all change tomorrow - such is evolution - o...

Re: Possibility of a selective lockdown by age group?

Imperial college have just produced an analysis that states that antibodies don't last more than 3 months in 26% of cases. So the fuel for the virus is not finite Antibodies are one of the bodies defences. The diminution in antibodies does not necessarily mean that we all suddenly become as vulnera...

Re: Hot off the press, the official online site to apply for Titre de séjour has just opened

Do you get the option to declare dual nationality on the application? I'm unsure of what to do because I don't think it's safe to assume that having an Irish passport exempts us from applying for a card because our NI contributions were made in the UK, OH receives a UK pension and I'm sure there wi...

Re: Oxford vaccine works perfectly by safely triggering an immune response

I've seen various secondhand reports, such as this from an FT comment "the study contains just 750 healthy over 70 year olds and 750 healthy 56-69 year olds out of a total of 30,000 participants. Given that they do not yet have a statistically significant read out for the 28,500 it is inconceivable...

Re: Possibility of a selective lockdown by age group?

Where did I say anything about stopping it spreading? Yes, I know it can also affect younger people too but one of the suggestions here is for a lockdown for those over 65. Given the age group that it affects the most and the numbers now in hospitals then I think it makes it sense to do that if the...
