    General Corona Virus Discussion

    This is not an advertisement and I am not affiliated with them in any way. I bought a bag of these to my family around January (not even worrying about coronavirus yet). It doesn't kill the viruses but it makes your immune system stronger. Before we started to give that to our children, they were constantly catching a cold which - eventually- was leading to a bronchitis / pneumonia...
    So it was like - two weeks in a kindrgrten and three weeks at home - trying to recover... it was fun... (except it wasn't).

    https://hwpartners.co.jp/en/about-narine/

    (The link is - let's say - "random" - the first one I found about Narine in English).

    Since my kids are taking these, not a single flu / cold for weeks already. Actually, my boy (almost 2 years old now) has a snotty nose for a couple of days, however it is not turning into anything else... which - as I believe - proves that their immune system is stronger.

    I am really concerned about that coronavirus thing and that is why I've decided to share a bit of my experience here. Maybe you guys and galls will find it helpful.

    I hope this nightmare ends soon...

    I wish good health and internal strength to everone. Drink water more often than you usually do and have some good sleep (something I need to work on myself ;-)).

    Pro biotics indeed can help immune system after a regiment of anti biotics and even help with a rebalance to help the body self regulate stomach acid production.

    I find it far easier than eating yogurt and less fattening as a result.

    Bringing salt levels up also helps since flora survive better with it, however, too much water is not good neither and flushes it, low sugar intake seems to help too.

    Jack: this is nothing to do with your comment above, but given your enthusiasm for posting on the Markets/Economy thread and because you seem to be a keen observer of what's happening - have you noticed the perhaps not surprising similarity between what motivates financial markets and how folk are reacting to the virus? Both appear to be driven by fear and greed!!

    The one clear and unassailable observation (at least down here in the Antipodes) of peoples' behavior in pandemic times appears to confirm mainstream economic theory that we (as a society) are driven by the rational pursuit of self-interest!!

    I think (perhaps "hope" is a better word) that the current practices for hoarding and panic buying is a temporary state and that fairly soon we will start seeing the types of not-so-rational selfless reactions as were prevalent in lots of communities during WW2 (a different kind of pandemic).

    Of course statistics regarding the virus differ - but using www.worldometers information as global numbers there are about 169,113 cases confirmed and 6,494 related deaths (see later discussion about the latter number) at the time of writing. That means that the morbidity rate for the virus is 3.8%.

    Now, I don't suggest that everyone ignores the potential for the virus to mutate, or for the morbidity rate to rise - but perhaps a more proportionate response is needed by those of us who live in caring communities - maybe?

    And.... the thing about the death numbers is no one is identifying how many of these are related to an underlying cause other than the virus. So to assign a death (unfortunate as this is) to the virus, simply because the person had caught the virus is a tad harsh (I think)

    We certainly do live in interesting times !!

    Don

    PS: but at least the virus has introduce me to a new term "social distancing" - what a corker!!! ?

    I'm one of those stockpiling essentials...

    I ordered 9L (nearly 2.5 US gallons?) of various whiskeys online, should arrive tomorrow. It's like hand sanitizer, but for your insides

    Check this out:

    https://informationisbeautiful.net/v...phic-datapack/

    One of the slides:



    Obviously it's not comprehensive, but it's an idea - it's good to see ALL the slides as the study was performed in Wuhan, and mentioned the poor lung health and high rate of smoking.

    It's on the internet, so it must be true, anyway.

    ^^^Allan: you're-da-man, excellent information -go immediately to the top of the class!! The most pertinent slide (for me) is the last one: I watch the news services and I constantly note how the virus has become simple "product" for the media

    Sure these outlets play an important role as information providers to us, the great unwashed masses -but the deluge of virus reports seldom appear to be measured and proportionate!

    Perhaps the real virus here is the brain-worm that's spread subliminally over the media airways: perhaps the real threat from the virus is nothing more than modern society's propensity to be the mendicant of the media? Shirley not - have we managed to reach the 21st century only to realize that we ne3ed the media to do our thinking for us?

    It's amusing...

    The media is freaking people out. Influenza is still more likely to take people out, if you're playing a numbers game!

    I totally agree.

    An example from the BBC lunchtime news today - they ran aerial footage of one of the bridges in London over the River Thames which showed one taxi, one bicycle and some pedestrians. This was supposed to show how little traffic there was in central London, BUT other reports say that while the London Underground trains were almost deserted traffic on the roads was normal.

    So what's the story behind the almost traffic free bridge? ..... it is closed to traffic (except taxis, bicycles and pedestrians) for several months for major repairs!!!!

    So the BBC were deliberately broadcasting misinformation calculated to scare viewers This is another example of why the BBC cannot be trusted to be impartial or accurate.
