The problem with NSAIDs is their effect on the immune response to the virus - they drastically reduce it. Paracetamol and microdose aspirin are ok, pain-relief or anti-inflammatory doses of aspirin/NSAIDs seem to be very dangerous right now. Use dihydrocodeine or similar if you really need it. (No idea about gabapentin or amitryptiline).

I haven't seen any research on fhe effects of fever reduction. My take on it is that fever is an anti-viral response, so you want to just let it happen unless it gets dangerously high - and with COVID-19 it rarely seems to get that bad.

Acetaminophen and paracetamol are the same thing, as is Tylenol, which is just a brand name in the US.

Well I've been taking diclofenac (Voltarol) for many years for back pain. It's an NSAID but the advice is to continue taking it, and I am doing. I have better things to worry about.

very high temperatures - >40C - are, in themselves, life-threatening and need to be reduced.

As I always say, "life ain't binary". But the advice to the general idiot in the street, currently for COVID-19, is "to avoid ibuprofen and asprin", because they are vaso-dilatory.
If you are in hospital, it is a different context, you have the extended knowledge of experts, who have thermometers and are not afraid to wield them.

Some experts advocate Tylenol which would appear to be nothing more than Paracetamol which has been cited as not much better - and is also antipyretic BTW. Though is not anti-inflammatory which is a plus apparently.

I live in fear of hearing that Abidjan cases escalate. Most of the people there are poor, ill-nourished and living in very close proximity, several to a room etc. They are all on curfew, but can go out during the day and mix freely, which seems mad to me.
Also, medical care is practically unobtainable there.

I see that most of the major supermarkets are now allowing only one person to each trolley (no couples) so I'll have to stay in the car while husband does the actual shopping armed with a list.

I hope Boris Johnson pulls through. (and indeed anyone in an ICU)
I read today that two-thirds of those put on a ventilator will die from the virus. Luckily my sister is off hers now and on a drip instead.

I hope Boris does well in the Horse spittle.
A failure to act is his only sad crime
We can hope his breathe won't get too brittle
What this means is that Covid 19 has stunned
his ace2 receptors deep in the lungs.
The air sacs (avioli) have the ace2 receptors.
If the virus stays in the nose the case may stay mild
but being well behaved is not in virus nature.

ITS OFFICIAL In Chicago the black community is suffering a double
infection rate and is dieing at 7 times the rate of white communities.
The cause is probably education and the nature of their employment.

A Mask For All: requires a 3D printer

I don't know who has a 3D printer where I am ...
having said that:
this thing you can download, for free if I get this right,
and the 3D printer will make it
and you assemble it.
The mask frame has a place where you can insert filter material,
thus you can clean the mask when not in used,
and replace a used mask filter with a new clean one.

What do you all think?

Then something hits you in the guts. Yesterday, a bloke I knew personally died of the bloody thing. That's the first time for me. It's a shuddering thing is that. He was a brilliant musician and I once played a duet on the harmonica with him. There's actually a thread about him above the line. His name is Ted Crum and he was one of the loveliest men you could wish to meet. Damn... :-(

Worldometer data and charts for COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic

If you want to know more data on a specific country click the hyperlink on the country name on the left hand column. Not all countries have a hyperlink. A useful column for comparison of countries in the spreadsheet is Deaths/1 million population.

For the last two weeks Australia has been using social distancing and non-essential business shutdowns and social isolation. People are expected to stay at home and only go out for essentials like food supplies, medical appointments and essential work. A lot of people are suddenly working from home, including my Hubby.

If you look at the charts most of the negative data are showing a flattening of the curve or even a minor decline.

Unfortunately a decision was made in mid March to allow a cruise ship to dock and passengers disembarked and went to their respective home areas, despite a notification by the medical officer on board advising that some of the passengers and crew were found to be infected with COVID 19. This has been the main source of infections in Australia and contact tracing has been conducted in most of the cases to trace the various infections to contact with someone coming in from overseas. Some contacts have been within the community, however, and these have been more difficult to trace.

The important thing to focus on is that the social distancing and isolation, and the shutdown of non-essential businesses appears to be having a positive effect.

By comparison, look at the U.S. data and the negative charts all show rising cases and rising deaths.

I would suggest that if your government does not tell you to socially isolate yourself then think about doing it for yourself if at all possible.

Re: Coronavirus TIMING in the calendar year 2020
Three dates:

April 4, 2020

(May 13)    June 30    (September 12) , 2020

November 12, 2020   


Explanation:
The calendar year 2020 and the time cycle for the coronavirus pandemic
will not be a simple event with a rise, one big peak/top, and a fall back towards 'normalcy.'

The pandemic cycle will have TWO high peaks, not one,
and inbetween there is a false low, with one lowest point.

First pandemic peak: April 4, 2020 ... but not the last.

False pandemic 'low point': June 30, 2020;
the pandemic will appear to drop starting May 13,
and will not rise very much before/until September 12.

November 12, 2020 will see the pandemic peak for the SECOND time, and strongly, too.


'Apparent retrograde motion,' an astronomical phenomenon, gets the credit
for bringing three date markers, instead of one, into this cycle.
And the real culprit is the planet Pluto.

In this age of favoring the economy over the life spans of people, by the businessman/fascist tactics of the new conservatives, it is actually neccessary to remind YOU that living IS AGING!

While the wealthy ruling class repeat and insist that "the cure must not be worse than the problem", YOU MUST NOT give in to the nonsense that your survival is unimportant compared to doing business.

With enough repetition/hypnosis people can be lured to the cliffs like lemmings. Its happened before. It sounds like it will happen again.
You may not need to be reminded that aging is living but the young are more easily indoctrinated than you.

Her vicar contacted 111 on her behalf, but they said she can't be admitted to hospital for several reasons. She's elderly, is managing to breathe although with difficulty, and they're short of places anyway.
She's spent all her working days as a hospital doctor and yet there's no place for her now in her hour of need.
