Odd stats about covid 19

In Britain, so far 120 NHS (National Health Service) workers have sadly given their lives helping covid victims. It turns out that a staggering 75% of them are BAME (British term for black, African, Asian, ethnic minority). The reasons for this are not fully understood.

Similarly, in the US, the disease seems to be disproportionately affecting black people.

In France, hydroxychloroquine is reported as having very good results with covid patients, whereas in America, the opposite is the case.

In NYC, only 5% of seriously ill covid patients are smokers. (Mike; you were unlucky!). Mike reports that German doctors gave him nicotine as part of his successful treatment. The DM reports that it appears that nicotine dampens down the immune system response to the disease. Many victims suffer a cytokine storm, which is an overreaction of the body’s immune system. It can be deadly. It consists of a positive feedback loop between cytokines and immune cells. So, nicotine may soon become standard treatment.

On a positive note, scientists at Oxford university say they have a vaccine for the chicom bat virus and it is undergoing human trials now. They say that they are 80% certain that it will be ready to go into production in September. This could be the ‘game changer’ that everyone is waiting for. However, producing billions of doses will be an incredible challenge. But let’s hope that this job will not be factored out to the chicoms.

  1. US researchers state that high heat and humidity destroys the virus. Parts of Australia, including Western Australia, report no new cases. They recently experienced temperatures of 39-40c in a very hot late summer season.

    • Any good news is welcome! This WWIII that violated the earth’s inhabitants is so evil that we don’t know what will eventually come of it. Zinc is good, zinc is bad. HCQ works in France but on the USA, it disproportionately affects different cultures, every day is something else. We may need a hundred medicines to find one that works and then it might mutate into something else.
      Thanks China, for sharing your culture with the world, “I’m not a virus, I’m a human…” 4 February 2020, Italy…

      • Zinc is not for everyone. In my case it made things worse. They then stopped giving it to me. I think each person needs an individual cure, because of existing health issues, allergies, genetics, way of life, etc.

        • Absolutely, that was my point. This disease is so fukkd up the docs don’t really know what to do except tell everyone to stay away from each other. You get garlic, schnapps and a cigarette, and then someone else gets bear piss and someone else gets arthritis medicine…

            • This what he said.

              “And then I see the disinfectant where it knocks it out in a minute. One minute. And is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside or almost a cleaning?

              “So it’d be interesting to check that.”

              • Jesus! Plain stupide! BTW, the crap i had to inhale was pretty much doing this, disinfecting the lungs. Disinfecting the blood means to kill the patients. Sounds very ruSSian style… 😐

          • Good God! That would kill the virus alright. It would also inflict a painful death on the patient. However, alcohol would also kill viruses. I wonder if there is some exotic method of getting it to the infected areas without killing the patient? Probably not, but you never know! This virus is weird as well as evil. I mean, who would have thought that nicotine could ever be efficacious?!

            • Scientific experiments showed that the activity of Covid-19 reduces when it is exposed to sunlight, high temperatures, high humidity and alcohol. Bill Bryan, head of science and technology at the Department of Homeland Security said so as quoted by CNN in their story.

              • Ha! Who said boozing and smoking is lethal? 😀 The latter may only be useful if someone is a moderate smoker like myself. I smoke 2-3 cigarettes a day, sometimes only one.

        • Mike, did you get nictotine patches and do you know how much dosis was??? I’m interested cause they say in netherlands that most on ICU die of immune system going bezerk.

          • I did get something to inhale, partly comprised of chlorid and nicotine, but i can’t tell you precise quantities. Should have asked me that when i was in hospital.

      • Chinese government threw windows in, in 190 countries, and is liable for damages, like you(re kid) is liable if throws a ball through neigbours windows..

  2. I didn’t know then you were there, otherwise I would have sent a GET WELL card 🙂

What is your opinion?
