I wonder if that malaria drug that is being used to treat some patients would have a prophylactic benefit for flight crews ? Especially medical crews ?
Some anti - malarial meds have some real serious side effects . Those are generic drugs so it should be a cheap fix , not 100 percent so far .

I am on a mailing list that includes a bunch of docs. They have reports of folks self medicating with the 'malaria drug' as you call it in China, and those folks are now dead. The issue is, there is only a very small margin of error between and effective dose, and a fatal dose, on the order of 1/2 gram a day. the trials in the hospital were administering 1/2 gram twice a day. The folks that died took 1.8 gram, dont know how it was dosed. And yes, they talked about a long list of side effects, the more serious involved vision.

I think I'll pass on the anti-malarial medications. Probably best to wait for something that'll actually work, and not cause all number of side effects. I know there was talk of using antiretroviral medications in response to COVID-19 - but I believe they were found ineffective as well.

Even as a young person, even I don’t die, I somewhat worry about lasting lung damage from this virus.

Sorry mate, general air pollution and breathing in exhaust from aircraft are going to do much worse to you.

Personally I will rely on our scientific research and evidence bases community to come up with the necessary solutions and I am of the view they will in short order. What’s troubling to me is to hear of these quackery concoctions pushed by the purveyors of Quack Alternative Medicine aka naturopathic and homeopathic types, even Chiropractors are getting in on it saying spine adjustments will help with COVID-19. Regulatory Agencies need to crack down on this shit, hopefully they will.

Several different media reports , that 21 million cell phones and 900,000 land lines have gone silent around the patient zero neighborhood. Happenstance ,coincidence or the reason why borders are being militarized ?

She told me she would only date men with a red sports car, a nice house and ten inches . I told her that we could paint the Bentley any colour she liked , the house was painted last year ,and the doctor said he could cut it down to any length she liked :mrgreen:

Based on all those phone lines going down, someone speculated hundreds of thousands of deaths, which sounds crazy but given the Chinese and their Muslim concentration (erm, sorry, “re-education” camps), I would not put it past them.

A successful conspiracy, is one in which a limited number of individuals "know" the ins and outs of what has, or will be occurring. Each time people are "read in" to the conspiracy, it increases the odds of leaks.

To say that the Chinese could have, or are, hiding hundreds of thousands of fatalities; in this day and age of instant communication, satellite technology, etc., is difficult to believe. I mean, sure, it could be plausible - but for how long could you maintain the conspiracy? It only took two days for observers to detect the release of radiation from the Chernobyl disaster, and that was in 1986. Satellite images of the "re-education" camps are widely available now, and yet the Party line is still maintained... Again, it could be plausible, but how do you hide it? A country with a population of a billion or so people can certainly shuffle the deck and make things work, but a fatality rate like that would be impossible to hide.

Looks pretty normal over in Wuhan.



I'd buy a C-172 for a physical asset but they still seem to cost $80,000+

The cabin fever is obviously getting to some of you. Go for a long walk on a quiet trail in the country. Take a few deep breaths and try to rediscover your humanity.
