!!! BREAKING NEWS !!!
The government is increasingly worried about the effect that their impetuous knee-jerk reactions to the coronavirus are having in confusing the public. In particular, the decision to have different regulations for different local lockdowns appears to be understood by very few people, certainly not themselves.
In an attempt to deal with this, they are setting up a body of the leading nineteen Conservative politicians. They will meet regularly to deal with the implications of their past, present and future failures in their reactions to the pandemic.
The body will be called the Committee Overseeing Very Idiotic Decisions. It will be referred to by its acronym and its total of members; the thinking is that calling it COVID 19 will give a good ring to it.

From the public statements I've seen, the Oxford team are not claiming much long-term effect. Using it in practice would require dosing a very large proportion of the population very quickly and with a lot of booster shots. There is no precedent for a programme like that. In the US, not many healthcare workers would survive the inevitable massacres by gun-toting anti-vaxxers.

Thanks for the gratuitous insult.

"not true." As ever, you haven't done your homework and you're spouting off without having a clue as to what you're talking about. The vaccine shows promise and looks safe. But every scientist working on the scheme would tell you that many potential vaccines have reached this stage of development, then failed at the next hurdle. I invite you to look that up (as I have).

Meanwhile the Oxford vaccine is going on to bigger trials and the British Gov has ordered 100 million doses for an anticipated distribution in October, we are told today by the BBC. A gamble, for sure, but cf the furlough pay-outs - not too costly. The doses won't all stay in the UK, that was part of the deal.

Of course, as the thread title specifies "News" rather than conjecture. Here's the latest news on a possible vaccine: BBC: Oxford Vaccine

A coronavirus vaccine developed by the University of Oxford appears safe and triggers an immune response.
Trials involving 1,077 people showed the injection led to them making antibodies and T-cells that can fight coronavirus.
The findings are hugely promising, but it is still too soon to know if this is enough to offer protection and larger trials are under way.
The UK has already ordered 100 million doses of the vaccine.

"Yes rash is a known symptom."
Strange that the NHS don't seem to mention it.
Nor do America's CDC who show a longer list on their website: Centre for Disease Control
Watch for symptoms
People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:

Fever or chills
Cough
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Fatigue
Muscle or body aches
Headache
New loss of taste or smell
Sore throat
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
Diarrhea
This list does not include all possible symptoms. CDC will continue to update this list as we learn more about COVID-19.

From my experience not even doctors can give an authoritative assesment of future events. There are best possibilities and risk assesments but no guarantees. The words possibly and probably are practicly fraternal twins and are not everyone's pet peeve.

In one of the infection types, micro hemmorages are the causal problem.
Clotting is diminished but is still a problem in effect. Ergo Heperin is used.

In this area above all others we should be sticking to the known facts, not casually risk misleading people. "Probably" means "much more likely than not" and, in the context used, is unsupportable.

Twin A comes home from daycare with a stomach bug. A few days later, Twin B and I and other parent all come down with stomach bug. We got it from Twin A. Who got better and wanted to *play* (they were about 18 months old at the time) while the rest of us wete clinging to life by our buckets.

Niece comes to Thansgiving on a Tuesday night with a stomach bug. By Sunday night, mom, all 4 of us kids and one spouse, all 7 cousins, an ex- and their new spouse, and our 90+-year old guests -only there for the few hours of dinner itself- all had it. In three states. We got it from Niece. The CDC said if it spread beyond the family they would get involved.

So, lay off Donuel. Even if he's wrong about knowing where he got his cold.

That Thansgiving we all got a prize: I got lasy holdout

You simply couldn't know for sure whether you caught it from him or even whether you had the same disease as him. I sat next to kids in classrooms for decades and was coughed over and sneezed on and handled their snotty books many times. I rarely got ill and there was not one single occasion on which I could attribute any ague I picked up to any particular pupil.

So far. A week is a long time with Captain Catastrophe at the helm.


FWIW I am hearing that the UK Gov wants (is?) to ignore death that occur 28 days after the patient has recovered from COVID. So if there is no test? And all we hear from the emerging symptoms is that there are lingering symptoms that are not trivial. As reported by Sir Peter Piot, world expert on infectious viruses. He says you don't want it.

Oxford scientists believe they have made a breakthrough in their quest for a Covid-19 vaccine after discovering that the jab triggers a response that may offer a "double defence" against the virus.

Phase I human trials of the world-leading Oxford vaccine have shown that it generates an immune response against the disease, The Telegraph has learned.

Blood samples taken from a group of UK volunteers given a dose of the vaccine showed that it stimulated the body to produce both antibodies and "killer T-cells", a senior source said.

The discovery is promising because separate studies have suggested antibodies may fade away within months, while T-cells can stay in circulation for years.

However the source cautioned that the results, while "extremely promising", did not.

On the bright side, under the radar there are several signs of hope.
Therapeutics like Resdemivir etc. are arriving before vaccines, rapid low cost saliva tests are a game changer and past exposure to common cold corona virus might help and vaccine trials seem to work.
There is also mono clonal antibodies that will be coming onto market this Fall. They are working and are not a rumor.

New research accounts for 20-50% who have never been exposed to Covid 19 but still have immune cells that react to this new virus. The speculation for that, is that past exposure to normal common cold corona virus' creates a cross connectivity for partial or full immunity. Bear in mind that it is my wife and not I who works for the NIH. There are some things that are considered a 'close hold' and can not be discussed openly but there is real and substantiated progress being made.
