    So we have gone as far as we can go. No wiggle room. It’s either the kids schooling or the pubs. I wonder which will get closed down.

    This lady who had the test done was televised by the BBC just a few days ago for a programme going out later this year. I believe it is on Covid 19

    I'm still not convinced on this early emergence theory, it does not fit with observed rates of spreading in populations worldwide.

    The sewer samples would be there because the virus is passed by humans in faeces and urine, given observed rates of transmission it should have been obvious far earlier and there should be spikes in annual monthly mortality statistics in many countries which are basically not there.

    When you look at the spike that we know is there for the UK, it starts in March, that fits with numeric exponential spreading based on initial UK infections in late January.

    The sewer tests are problematic to my mind and it still looks hard to push the zoonotic jump much earlier than mid October 2019, the second possibility is that it was present in people for longer but evolved in humans to the level of lethality currently observed and that event happened in China sometime late last year.

    Regards specific individuals like this lady testing positive for antibodies we still have the issue of asymptomatic spreading we just don't know when someone could have been infected and possibly developed immunity without showing symptoms.

    She wasn’t certain of what the programme will contain exactly i.e. the fine detail. But it will be interesting to see what the programme covers. She is making a habit of getting into the media over health matters and has featured in the Daily Mail and Good Morning TV.

    With all due respect, the case rate in Spain is on a dramatic increase and is much higher than the UK at this precise moment which means that two to three weeks from now Spain will be experiencing many more hospitalisations and the death rate will increase, I would not be surprised if the same follows in the UK delayed by a week or two.

    you could argue that Larry has a point if he was more specific in his statement!
    If you look at this tracker and pick your spot then you maybe safe.

    I am no fan of Johnson or his unelected puppet master but what specific figures are they supposedly telling porkies about?
