Please stop waffling about useless & incompetent government....waste of breath.
Go to joe rogans youtube and watch doctor rhonda patrick talk about vitamin D .
Its not dangerous as said on here even at 50,000 ius . Trials with K2 with dark skin peoples started year ago.
Interesting points on somalis in sweden with chronic low vit D and how it controls hormone production & body protection.
Zero advice from scummy torys about helping your body is there !?

Not just the humans. 44 elephants have been found dead in Botswana. Unknown causes. Ruling out anthrax or poisons as they would also kill jackals and others that feed on the carcasses. Waiting for post mortem results.


"" Okavango Elephants death toll rise to 44
The death toll in the Okavango Panhandle elephants has risen to 44.

Yesterday 36 carcasses were counted from which 14 carcasses were discovered 40 kilometres from Seronga catchment villages, the epicentre of all carcasses discoveries so far.

Today 8 new discoveries were made taking the overall count to 44 elephants. The count is still ongoing.""

Should the children go back to school ? I'm not sure if it's good or bad just yet. My thoughts go to the children who have been locked up in homes where domestic violence might have been. They will be desperate to get out.

Maybe it should be left to parents to make a decision for a period of time.

Perhaps have a limited number of kids in school at any one time so each one does two day a week. Both the pupils and staff need to be protected, discipline is going to be a problem, yet another weapon in the tyke's armoury against both staff and other pupils.

It has to be assessed on a very localised basis not at national scale.

I see Wirral Council have come down heavily against the 1st June

I see the blame game has started,Therese Coffey the work and pensions secretary has blamed its coronavirus mistakes on wrong scientific advice, stating I'm not surprised people think we made the wrong decision.

In response Public Health England insisted Matt Hancock's Department of health was responsible for ordering the governments testing strategy, shouldn't it be Matt H making these allegations? oh maybe not it would invite some awkward questions, speaking of, where is Boris? is being kept out of the way in case he does a Trump, latest figures show around 44,000 deaths and still rising.

All sorts of figures are being floated around, it's getting more and more complicated to follow the graphs that are being delivered on a daily basis. I thought 41,000 was the figure mentioned for death certificates, but could be wrong.

Bad and as tragic as they are , we continue to judge by the number of deaths as a comparison to EU countries . When looking at the cases for each country in Europe, it would seem the other countries have a higher percentage of recoveries to the UK. That, I believe should be questioned. Why have there been more recoveries elsewhere ?

It was mentioned in April that UK could reach 40,000 but that was the forecast for the first wave and suggested there could be 4 or 5 waves . That is very worrying and when certain countries are now pushing tourism, because it's one of the biggest money spinners to build their economy again, then I think we can expect this as an ongoing pandemic for a long time.

France has had to shut down some of the schools they re-opened, this was 100% predicted by everyone except the politicians. Macron in the meantime has lost his majority, major protest in the streets, a lot of turmoil in France generally. Surely that ends Macron's ambition of becoming the EU's figurehead.

Things won't and can't return to normal, the politicians need to earn their salaries and think about new ways of working instead of putting soundbites together.

I read somewhere yesterday that there is an antibody test that was about to go on sale but I can't find that information today.
I wonder how true this is?

I would be interested in this test and would buy one if not too dear. The last I heard was they were advising not to buy unless passed by NHS I think . Soppose eventually they will be able to buy from maybe Boots and such places.

"Simpler "finger prick" type tests for antibodies that could be carried out at home are being looked at as well but currently none have yet been approved for use."
Unsure when they will be available to the wider public because they want to test every fronline worker before anyone else.

Oh Granny, I had a good laugh at your message.

My American friend said, if a fart can get through 2 bum cheeks, a pair of panties and a pair of jeans, then a mask will not protect anyone from getting coronavirus! This was her joke of course!

Hahaha !

The person I heard it from, said that just like the cotton masks are better at preventing the spread, if we should wear cotton knickers or underpants the protection would be greater !. That was when I went in to hysterics, but that same person actually believed it !!

Give us plenty of warning when you are out and about, Mikeeb.
