Bill Etheridge @BillEtheridgeuk  If this works out to be an effective treatment I look forward to the media lauding @realDonaldTrump for his early recognition of it

 

'Robert Peston  @Peston  Interesting that @MattHancock said "early signs" show that hydroxychloroquine may be "very effective treatment" for #Covid19. He implied UK government is acquiring significant stocks of it'

an epidemiologist writes;

  • The flattening of the curve we are seeing now is due to the most vulnerable dying first as much as the lockdown
  • UK policy on lockdown and in other European countries is not evidence-based
  • The correct policy is to protect the old and the frail only
  • This will eventually lead to herd immunity as a ‚Äúby-product‚ÄĚ
  • The initial UK response, before the ‚Äú180 degree U-turn‚ÄĚ, was better
  • The Imperial College paper was ‚Äúnot very good‚ÄĚ and he has never seen an unpublished, non-peer-reviewed paper have so much policy impact
  • Is dismissive of the 510,000 figure that was predicted if mitigation measures were not implemented
  • The Imperial College paper was much too pessimistic and did not factor in the now much increased ICU capacity
  • Any such models are a dubious basis for public policy anyway, taking no account of real world specifics
  • The results will eventually be similar for all countries
  • Covid-19 is a ‚Äúmild disease‚ÄĚ and similar to the flu, and it was the novelty of the disease that scared people.
  • The actual fatality rate of Covid-19 will in all likelihood turn out to be in the region of 0.1%
  • At least 50% of the population of both the UK and Sweden will likely be shown to have already had the disease when mass antibody testing becomes available

Screening tests from Holland and the US are indicating 60% of those positive to the virus or the antibodies were asymptomatic.

Of the other 40% we know 90% of them had only mild symptoms.

Of those who have covid as a cause of death 89% are in the over 65 age group.

Latest estimate for total deaths from covid in the UK have come down from 70,000 to 40,000

We know in an average year 30,000 die from flu or pneumonia.

No longer any talk of a ventilator shortage crisis because there wasn't one.

Govt sources are saying social distancing is working but as the epidemiologist (see posts above) pointed out there was always going to be a spike in deaths as covid attacked the most vulnerable then after that there will be a decline.

Sweden is fast approaching heard immunity with similar covid stats per pop as those who locked down. Sweden did not lockdown or crashed their economy.

I appreciate this thread. But something that does worry me is that a recent poll showed ~90% of people want to keep the lockdown. Therefore I am well out of touch with the average man, as I would have followed something closer to the Sweden model and i'd have those schools open next week.

But it dosent matter what I think, it matters what the majority think. And this thread is a "minority view".

The debate will never be evidence or science based. Look at how many people don't want kids to go to school, despite the under 18 death rate being so low you couldn't make a 5-a-side football match.

That's the story across much of the EU and USA which goes to show what a terrific job main stream media have done in terrifying people. The important thing is to forget the thousands and concentrate on the few statistical outliers who tragically died from covid young and without underlying health problems.

Curiously the panic was started by the Chinese govt and spread to other govts but the Chinese had seen far more deaths from H1N1 so what was it about this that sent them into full lockdown mode? Because they knew which lab it came from perhaps?

The majority have low IQ. The same majority that are failures in life and looking for the next reason to justify their shortcomings and never think for themselves. Could this majority be the same group losing money consistently trading the markets?

The universe need losers to exist for winners to excel.

I'm starting to wonder about your IQ ... 

IQ is distributed normally around a mean, meaning that half of the people are below 100 and half are above.  Hence the majority cannot be below average.

A bit like how when you ask men about their driving skills, most of them will say they are above average which is statistically nonsense  :D

Since you are referring to the Gaussian Dist. then you should know to fall 1 SD either side is very common covering about 68%. Very common meaning very average.  Very average meaning dumb enough not to understand what is going on but enough brain cells to obey rules and follow orders.

Team spirit, team herding and obeying authority blindly without the capacity for independent thinking are these people strong points. So yes, the majority have low IQ to do anything or think anything out of the ordinary. The cookie cutter type near you.

As for my IQ, the US army can't legally recruit me.

"Still can't quite work out why we are deliberately destroying the economies of every first world nation."

What's the alternative Casey? Go back to normal, encourage the spread of the virus, accept a few extra deaths as a cost of doing business? How many deaths are acceptable? If there was no lockdown the virus would be rampant and the costs exponentially more. Life is on hold. You are right to suggest there is something we are not being told. But there is always something we are not being told...

It's a rock and a hard place situation. Most healthy people will be fine. It's those who are not as fit and healthy who are vulnerable. And yes I miss the gym and swimming and sauna talk (what's said in the sauna stays in the sauna), but my wife is vulnerable so I have to wait and trade and walk and drink too much wine more often than normal and eat a bit more than normal. The viable way is herd immunity, but who is in a queue to get it?

Interesting the identity of the "epidemiologist" is missing. It's like saying a "doctor" thinks..... It is fact free supposition. Unfortunately. Agree the lockdown is no fun and detrimental to the economy. Healthy people get Covid and die as surely as vulnerable people, though not as many.  Yes, many of us may have had it but as there is a  paucity of testing both for antibodies and the virus how will anyone know?  Unfortunately, I suggest the piece you have sent is in fact, fake news. Sorry.

Why didn't you bother looking back through the thread it's all there ('reprinted from above' I said), don't see why I need to duplicate every detail.

'This interview by Freddie Sayers of Professor Johan Giesecke, one of the world’s most senior epidemiologists, who is an advisor to the Swedish Government (he hired Anders Tegnell who is currently directing Sweden’s strategy), is worth 35 minutes of your lockdown viewing time. He lays out Sweden’s thinking'

Don't forget to clap for our own enslavement every Thursday for frontline NHS workers busy making music and dance videos. They are overworked, suffer from PTSD and witnessing traumatic scenes of sick and dying patients testing positive for COVID 19.

US doctors and nurses are going to find themselves joining the unemployed line soon! No wonder it makes sense for them to start speaking out.

    • Start the conversation The US election is scheduled for Tuesday 3 November 2020, when all 50 states and Washington DC will cast their votes. The vote spans six different time zones, so the first exit polls will be available at around 11pm (EST) when West Coast voting closes. In the UK, that will be around 4am (GMT) on Wednesday 4 November 2020. The election is likely to create opportunities for traders, with price movements expected across a range of forex pairs, indices and commodities in the run-up to polling day. Volatility related to the election could continue until congress certifies the result on Wednesday 6 January 2021, or even until the winner is inaugurated on Wednesday 20 January 2021. What should traders expect to see during the US election? All US markets tend to experience increased volatility in the run up to a presidential election, including USD forex pairs, indices and commodities. That‚Äôs because many investors will attempt to lock in positions before the result is announced ‚Äď using polls to gauge public sentiment. The aim is to take full advantage of the price moves that occur when the country‚Äôs political direction is confirmed. At the top level, early indications suggest that the following could be on the cards if one of these two main candidates win: Donald Trump A Trump win could see an escalation of the trade war, potentially causing problems for some US exporters and having a negative impact on the value of the dollar. However, this effect could be offset by reassurances that tax cuts and deregulation will continue ‚Äď boosting the US economy. Joe Biden A Biden win could see tensions in the trade war cool, providing a boost to US exporters and the dollar. However, these effects could be offset by tax increases for high-income households, and more limited deregulation. ¬† How will markets react to the different candidates? Market commentary by IG Senior Market Analyst Joshua Mahony Stocks Markets hate uncertainty, and historically the perception has been that a new president might bring policies that could be harmful for stocks. This happened in 2016 when analysts were confident that a Trump presidency would spark a market collapse. But, we are now seeing that same fear creep in as people consider a Biden presidency and the potential uncertainty it could cause. Biden is openly more left-leaning, and his policies are expected to be geared towards human needs rather than those of investors and traders. This sentiment isn‚Äôt helped by suggestions that Biden would reverse Trump‚Äôs tax cuts, and it is likely that markets will rise alongside the potentially increased chance of a Trump victory as we approach the election. USD The value of a currency is supposed to reflect the health of an economy and its future prospects. Many are expecting Biden to be less focused on the markets than his Republican opponent, so the dollar could weaken in the event of a Biden victory. However, this effect could be offset if Biden is able to improve relations between the US and China after years of market anxiety. In this scenario, it would be the Chinese yuan which may benefit the most, with the trade war having sparked huge upside for USD/CNH. Keep in mind that if the wider markets fall on a Biden victory ‚Äď including US stocks and indices ‚Äď the dollar would likely rally in the short-term to reflect a risk-off move as investors turn to USD. Gold The prospect of a more expansive fiscal policy under Biden, and from a government which is happy to embark on substantial spending programmes, could provide a boost to precious metals. There‚Äôs a caveat here too, because in the past precious metals have also followed the same patterns as the stock markets during times of crisis. So, any collapse in equity markets that may come from a change at the White House could drag gold lower in the immediate period. Plus, while Trump has finally seen the kind of stimulus he would have hoped for, a Biden win could result in a more substantial stimulus package if the Democrats gain a foothold in Congress. ¬† How¬†are you trading?
