    It's rising again in China. Could be another strain. What should we do about China?

    I had chicken pox when I was about 5 years old and shingles when I was 65. I'll be happy if it stays dormant for another 60 years.

    I was in China when I developed shingles. The doctors told me it was herpes zoster which I'd never heard of and I was thinking "How the Hell have I got herpes. " Then I got to a computer and Googled* it. I told my sister I blamed her for giving me chicken pox but I think it was the other way round, i.e. I got it first and gave it to her and my brother.

    Reminds me of the old joke "What's the difference between herpes and love?"

    Herpes is forever.

    This op-ed runs into trouble on “Fact 1”, because that Stanford study has had lots of questions raised, and one of its key conclusions - mentioned in this piece - just doesn’t match the actual reality. A fatality rate of around 0.1% is just not credible when in multiple locations (at least Lombardy, Madrid, San Marino, NYC *and* NY state as a whole), more than that proportion of the whole population is already dead. And they haven’t stopped, not by a long chalk

    So, sorry, that’s just not credible and if the first “fact” claimed is dodgy, how much credence do you give the rest of it? Faculty loyalty can go too far

    On the subject of China. The New York Times are reporting that they've seen evidence (& a copy of the original uncensored EU report) that the EU watered down a report on China's Covid 19 disinformation campaign after pressure from Beijing. This (if true) should cheer up the Southern Europeans no end

    Pressured by China, E.U Softens Report on Covid-19 Disinformation

    “The Chinese are already threatening with reactions if the report comes out,” Lutz Güllner, a European Union diplomat, wrote to colleagues on Tuesday in an email seen by The Times.
    The sentence about China’s “global disinformation” campaign was removed, as was any mention of the dispute between China and France. Other language was toned down.
    The delay and revisions incited anger and frustration among some diplomats and government disinformation analysts. At least one analyst formally objected, writing to her bosses that the European Union was “self-censoring to appease the Chinese Communist Party.”

    Spoiler

    I think every B&Q that opened experienced the same thing ..shows that cracks are starting to appear in the lockdown and I reckon the Government will have to permit more freedom to prevent the whole lockdown failing. I’m guessing that they will permit visits to immediate family providing there are no signs of infection and also permitting work to resume where social distancing can be maintained ...probably after next weekend they will announce for the following week giving them a full 6 weeks of quarantine measures ..

    They need to open the schools, pronto. My two little blessings are doing my head in. Ok, some motherfuckers may die but that's a price worth paying.

    And the teachers need to stop with all this 'we need six weeks notice to open the schools'. The supermarkets managed in far less. We all know their job is a piece of piss, they need to drop the pretence.
