That was one of the loveliest things to ever happen. Stood in my garden sobbing like a baby! Proud to work for the NHS 👏👏👏👏❤️

My uncle lost his battle to this in Royal Bolton this morning, so he will be one of today’s numbers.  last rites over the phone held by a nurse with no family there. made an exception yester

I’ve sat with my mum who is slipping away, literally breathing her last today. She idolises the Queen, and whilst she didn’t in all likelihood hear that, I know she would have loved every single

Do you really think people working from home will speed the release up by nearly 2 years ? 

I do think that the fact they are doing nothing else and are likely to be pulled in will speed it up yes. 

I am only going off what i am witnessing in my work. 

You only need the right people round the table and this can be done when money is available and people are focussed on one thing. 

For example building the hospitals here hasn't taken long. No pandemic and doing those types of builds would take 18 months just to get the safety guy to look at it

Finding a vaccine would be good but we have a flu vaccine available every winter but 17,000 people a year still die from flu in the U.K., 48,000 people die a year from Sepsis in the U.K. 

I’d be happier if the treatment for anyone who catches the more severe symptoms of Covid could be improved, at first people who ended up on a ventilator in IC only had a 50/50 chance of coming through 

Read today some story about blood clots in the lungs causing biggest problem not pneumonia, blood thinning required not ventilation? Anybody know

Vaccines trials are usually produced by big pharma where money is the incentive - not the case with this, it's mainly universities, they are sharing info freely - publishing papers that are getting peer reviewed really quickly.

I would disagree with you there. They come from big pharma, small pharm, biotech companies, universities, etc. Universities pull in a lot of money via research so money can be an incentive for them as well

I agree with you though that unis are where the quicker results will likely come from due to information sharing amongst academics 

Although Thalidomide is the classic quoted example of what can go wrong there are much more recent examples such as COX-2 Inhibitors and Trobalt where inadequate trials failed to pick up serious failings. Don’t expect anyone to rush anything through and risk dealing with the consequences

If only there was a section of society who feel as though the world we are moving into just won’t be worth living. With the Expected food and medicine shortages, inability to travel anywhere and economic ruin just around the corner. 
 

imagine if we had a list of these people that could trial the vaccine as they wouldn’t technically be losing anything if it went tits up? 
 

shame we don’t have that 
 

just a thought

Most patients will be on some kind of anticoagulant - usually Dalteparin. That's the injection you probably got in your stomach each day if you've ever been in hospital.

Intubated patients might also be on something more aggressive. The problem is that as you increase anticoagulant - you increase the risk of a bleed - so they're not suitable for everybody.

Interesting though!

I don't think anybody remotely credible has suggested that a vaccine has any chance of being readily available inside a year. And that's the best case scenario, others who would know expect it to be even longer, as above.

So I'm not accused of being unduly negative, Hancock talked about making sure we were ready to mass produce one as soon as its available, which I think is A) a good thing and B ) about all we can do except wait.

But, knowing that the work is ongoing, I'd put talking about a vaccine pretty low down on the list of things which should be concerning us currently.

Both American media outlets..

Let's be honest they will be pretty peeved that the UK has beaten them too it as they can't profit on the vaccine.. 

They'll be trying to #fakenews anything that makes them look inferior. 

Someone mentioned a boom from vaccine sales.. is that unethical, even if a lot of the money is reinvested in research and the NHS?

Thanks for the info, looks like Trump’s miracle cure ‘Hydroxychloroquine’  was a false dawn, using blood from survivors looks promising 

No cure for ‘Aids’ but treatment now stops most people dying, think that’s the best we can hope for with Covid at the moment

Just read the BBC news website, just shit negative reporting. 

I am beginning to despise that organisation by the day, They covered up Jimmy fucking Savilles crimes at around the same time they banned the FGTH song Relax, should have known they were cunts back in 1984!

The lead researcher from Oxford indicated on Marr that some kind of universal scheme will be in place to make sure everyone has fair access to any successful vaccine. Which makes sense, and would obviously benefit us too if someone else comes up with one.

Chris Whitty just said that he's confident that a vaccine that works in concept will be found before the end of the year, but that the chances of one being widely available in that time are "incredibly small".

I thought that was a relatively informative briefing, compared to most other recent ones.

- We still don't have a reliable antibody test, even one that would be useable for the PHE study at Porton Down into how many people have had it.

- The minimum for any lockdown measures that are relaxed is that the rate of reproduction can't go above 1 for any period. To me, that suggests no normality until a vaccine or (more feasibly) a reliable method of controlling the disease can be found.

Multiple countries think they are below 1 at the moment, Germany think they've gone from 0.7 up to 0.9 since they've lifted restrictions so we'll have to see how they pan out - definitely not going to be totally back to normal for donkeys, but i think we'll get some freedoms back soon

I hate the BBC with a pash these days.

The banning of the FGTH song was obviously before the organisation was taken over by lefty minority groups.
