MERS Coronavirus warning

The one good thing I take out of all this is that when a really nasty, infectious virus hits us, which it will, we've learnt all the lessons and will be in a strong position to manage things properly.
 
Yes, it never rains or gets chilly in Germany, Sweden, Norway, etc.

The over 65s are a bunch of fat-barstewards also; three-quarters of them are overweight or obese. If they'd exercise more, lose some weight, they'd have better immune systems. This is pretty much an accepted fact; I'm sure.

But it's always someone else's fault, even the weather's.

earth calling.....winters in mainland Europe are COLDER and DRIER.
 
Just in from the ONS

Not only is it an utter b@st@rd of a virus, but in the UK it is also a racist b@st@rd of a virus.

Not only is it an utter b@st@rd of a virus, but in the UK it is also a racist b@st@rd of a virus.

Im assumong that for outrage purposes mixed race (which in every other instance = black) will not equal black here - So the Tory UK racist narrative can be pursued.

Rather than acknowledging hat just maybe as with many other diseases there are genetic factors.
 
Has anyone downloaded the NHS track and trace app ?
It needs Android 6 to run. My phone (which isn't all that old) has version 5.
So I'm a dead man walking? Buggered if I can see anyway to update the OS on my phone as well.

Piss poor that they couldn't - after all this time - develop a version for earlier version of Android. But that would require some level of competence and forethought I suppose.

Aye same here, says high risk in my post code, I think that's because the Northeast was already under tighter measures prior to the PMs announcement on Tuesday.
My area is down as medium, but in England it can only be Medium or High.

Seems like a pretty decent straight forward app, and I'm happy with the way privacy is handled from what I've read up on how it works.

I guess it will take a while to determine whether it is effective as you'll need to get a good number (in the millions) of users I recon.

It could well be genetic factors, equally, it could well be that certain demographics in the UK couldn't care less and paid no heed to any official advice.

It is only one set of figures, it would be interesting to see comparable figures from Belgium, Germany and France.

Then we might get a better idea.

Wonder if it's going to be world class as previously claimed.

Didn't take long :D :D

A race equality action plan designed to tackle the “structural and systemic racism” found to have contributed to the high Covid death rate among black, Asian and minority ethnic people in Wales is under way and will be complete early next year.

A report published earlier this year said that long-standing racism and disadvantage was a major reason behind so many people from BAME backgrounds falling critically ill.

 
Corona' loves dry climates. They should get it worse. There's evidence that damp climates reduce infection. Something to do with how aerosols attach to moisture in the air and drop.

yet again you fail to grasp the basics.

Britain's cold damp climate means people are far more indoorsy and bunged up with lurgies.

The first version of Android 6 was released in October 2015.

The last version of Android 5 (5.0.2) was released December 2014. The last version of Android 5.1 (5.1.1) was released April 2015.

I expect that any limits on compatibility with older versions of Android and iOS will depend as much on what features are available in the operating system as on how much time and money they want to spend on developing apps for every device under the sun.

So unless you're one of those mongs who gets a new phone every couple of years, when the latest model comes out to keep up with the Chav-Jones, but instead has a phone that just works and you're happy with it, you're stuffed. And they've had how long to develop this app? Tossers.

My version is 5.0.2 - how do I update to 6 (or higher)? Anyone have a clue please?

Generally I suspect this is guardian speak for treating people from those groups as at high risk.


In which case, did you oppose the special measures that were put in place for other demographics such as the elderly, people with existing conditions making them high risk?..

Done all that, it's still version 5. Looks like I'm joining the Chav-Jones.
