Vortex, referring your long post about the CDC. The CDC is partly if not largely funded by the pharmaceutical industry. It promotes mandatory vaccination, and owns several vaccine patents. These vaccines have not stopped the incidence of disease in the US, and in some cases they are causing common a...

School in Derbyshire closed of case from Italy. Other case from Teneriffe.
There you are cv101, an example of someone not self-isolating.

Would you keep us updated Ralph?

... and the ridiculous suggestions about self-isolation. How so? It's an effective way to slow spread. Only if people “self-isolate�. IMO that won't happen in many cases. How will most people manage to do that anyway? Most people won’t be storing a month’s supplies. Come to that, most peopl...

More brainwashing brought to you by the BBC https://twitter.com/bbcstudiospress/status/1226871264243015681?s=21 Certainly is brainwashing. Though the having a go at Greta is not helpful She has problems not of her own making, and needs some care and help, not as her abusive (or ignorant) parents ar...

You have got to be kidding .. Virus could kill half a million Britons and infect 80% of UK, leaked document suggests https://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/coronavirus-news-live-uk-italy-spain-outbreak-us-symptoms-cdc-update-a9359521.html and https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/coronavirus-cou...

Those wood burning cookers can be made a lot more useful by stacking a layer of heavy, frogless bricks up the sides. That provides a heat store and reduces the output fluctuations, so it’s possible to have a lower heat output while storing the excess. One of the problems with wood stoves on many d...

Or three weeks ago on this thread: clv101 wrote: It's worth pointing out we can't divide 80 by 3000 to give ~3%. The deaths are delayed, so are related to the (far lower) case count a week or so ago.

Manage the news, restrict bad news. Prohibit talking to the press, AKA "spreading rumours" In which case, the rest of us should assume the worst and act accordingly where possible. Assume HM Govt stats are no better than China's - especially if there are asymptomatic cases which are undet...

Season of Fear and National Budgeting Go Hand in Hand Whatever the source, the hysteria being drummed up follows a now well-worn pattern where the population is kept in a perpetual state of anxiety and fear about microbes so that drug companies (aided by federal health officials) can come to the re...

Anyone know what is planned ?

It could be the ordination (or canonization or whatever it’s called) of St. Greta

If this virus was plausibly containable then maybe such measures make some sense. But, since it clearly is not and, given it is likely to be ciorculating for years if not forever, then bollocks to it I say. Just eat well, get plenty of sleep, maybe invest in some oxygen and some anti- inflamatories...
