    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    As there is no definition of wave and people can define it however they want . anyone can say there is no second wave anywhere. Us lesser mortals think it looks pretty self evident that what we would term second waves look like they have happened in as much as the virus has returned in...

    I suspect his wages are a fair bit higher , less injury prone though.

    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    If you are comparing figures with the spring the numbers are not comparable due to the testing available. Compared with a couple of weeks ago the numbers are significant.

    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    Well the general idea of preventative medicine is to stop excess deaths some countries in Scandinavia and Germany barely had any but that does not mean they just had a 'seasonal variation' in March they had a wave of Covid which they took control of promptly.

    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    Cases in the autumn don't count because they are 'seasonal variation' I'd love to know what clown thought up that wonderful bit of sophistry.

    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    If ITU numbers are going up, hospital admissions are going up and virus detection is going up. It's likely to be because transmission is going up. You don't have to be a data scientist to realise that.

    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    Actually there is no such thing as old covid cells. It is a virus not a cell. The test detects viralrna and the rna can come from inactive virus . It is highly unlikely that you will get a rising incidence from historical covid as shedding decreases with time and it appears uncommon that it...

    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    They lag a bit but are a lot more up to date than deaths. although there is a lag between infection and symptoms, it is generally reckoned that it is only the last two days before symptoms that onward transmission is considered a significant risk.

    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    It's pretty unmlikely that the rise is due to picking up old infections , it may be a problem in terms of picking up people in time to make isolation effective but the rise in numbers is almost certainly not due to old infections a complete red herring,

    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    Deaths are a lagging indicator, it was generally acknowledged that we were late going into lockdown last time becuase we used deaths to look at the rate of change. Hospitalisations and ventilator useage is increasing. There is a choice as to whether or not to sit it out but if you decide to...

    The biggest medical condition that appears to exempt one fro wearing a mask appears to be idiocy.

    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    No one really knows what the false positive rate is and a lot depends on what you call a false positive. The pcr test detects viral rna and if the lab is even half decent if the test is positive it means that viral rna is present with a very high degree of probability. What this does not mean is...

    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    The trouble is he cherry picks his data, looks at old and inaccurate data and appears to be trying to paint a political picture rather than have a rational medical understanding.

    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    I am not an expert in immunology but here goes. Basically the paper is summarising what is known about the adaptive immune response to SARS CoV2 so far and speculating what this implies for the future of the disease in man as a result of this knowledge the main thrust of the speculation is...

    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    Not from the PCR testing, some antibody tests may have cross reactivity to other coronaviruses the PCR test is almost certainly highly specific to the COVID virus.
