WHO reporting a record world wide 24 hour increase in cases - 183,020.
Itís on Sky News but posting a link is beyond my meagre abilities.

And scarily it's just the beginning really. The sad fact is that it'll wipe out several million. The continued upwards trajectory in the States alone is scary to think about, but at least they have access to healthcare. Brazil, India, probably African countries too. They have little scope for escaping this without a terrible death toll.

I should let you know that it's even easier from your phone. Press on the Web address at the top for a couple of seconds and when the option pops up press on 'copy'. When writing your post press on the space of your post for a couple of seconds and press 'paste' when it comes up.

The faster a country required masks, the fewer coronavirus deaths it had: study

ďIt wasnít just by a few per cent, it was up to a hundred times less mortality. The countries that introduced masks from the very beginning of their outbreak have had hardly any deaths.Ē [Link]

Scars of Covid-19 could last for life as doctors warn of long-term damage to health

"&#8203;One in three patients who recover from coronavirus could be harmed for life, with long-term damage to their lungs, as well as chronic fatigue and psychological disturbances, research suggests.

Experts said there was growing evidence that the virus could cause persistent or even permanent trauma, including impairment to the brain and an increased risk of Alzheimerís disease.

NHS guidance seen by The Telegraph suggests that around 30 per cent of patients who recover from Covid-19 may be left with damaged and scarred lung tissue, if it follows patterns of similar diseases.

This could amount to around 100,000 of the 300,000 people who have so far tested positive in the UK. Limited testing during the pandemic means the figure may be still higher.

Some estimates suggest around 3.5 million people in the UK are likely to have been infected by Covid, meaning that more than 1 million could be left facing long-term consequences.

In an interview with The Telegraph, the head of the new NHS centre for Covid recovery said she was worried about how little was known about just how long the consequences may last.

Healthy people, who were in their 40s and 50s when the virus struck, are now facing anxiety, chronic fatigue and disability for years "

Warm air hand dryers in toilets can atomise this bug in the air for up to 3 hours. Turn them off, pull the fuse or trip the breaker and put paper towels out. Turn air conditioning off or at least shut the fan speed down locally and stop the air handling plant recirculating which is basically to save energy. Normally in the winter but can be stuck open all year round if not serviced and checked. Put air handling units on full fresh air supply as at least the extract is then doing just that. Back to hand dryers which statistically leave 255% more bugs on your hands than towels anyway before this little bugger emerged. I'm surprised hospitals still have them period.

Had a conversation yesterday with a chap who manages corporate property e.g. office blocks. His clients are saying they want to get their staff back to work so he was explaining to me some of the challenges.

- Everyone is now keen on cycling to work well that is all well and good but how many showers are their in your office?

After each person showers it must be sanitised before the next person just how practical and time consuming will that be. Years ago I worked for Barclays in a 16 story building in Canary Wharf they had 3 showers the queue was so large that a lot of the staff showered later in the day rather than wait, the rest of us had to enjoy their aroma up until then.

- Lifts apparently max you are allowed is 4 people all facing away from each other. If you work on the 4th floor you can walk up the stairs but if you work on floor 30, it will be a long wait.

- Toilets have to be cleaned several times a day.

- Have to reduce the number of desks and increase the space between them.

- Floor cleaning on a regular basis.

The real kicker for this guy was that his clients wanted all this stuff but no ones wants to pay for it.

Glad I'm retired and good luck to those wrestling with these issues.

Do all these people cycling not have any wet wipes.
Night club tarts carry them to wipe their minge before a bunk up in the alleyway. Good enough for kylie it's good enough kevin. Excuses excuses.
