I found this very interesting. In 70% of ICU patients tested, T-Cell count is dramatically reduced. T-Cell numbers increased back to normal range once the patient starts to recover.
I believe it's true of all organisations. It's a natural consequence. The qualification for promotion is to be good at the previous role, not the new one. Logically, most people end up one level too high - although some seem to manage to get much higher than that...There have been a few studies showing that at almost all levels within a bureaucratic system people tend to be promoted to their personal level of incompetence
Come on!! I am not saying that I take everything I see on YouTube as gospel. I am a bit of a snob,So when they rattle quickly through a bunch of numbers do you never stop to question whether the numbers actually make sense? Or are you so fast that you can instantly work out when there is something wrong with their numbers?
Or do you prefer if they don't put actual numbers in their video and sick to vague generalisations?
Do you keep stopping the video to go off and check the sources they quote and make sure that was what they actually said/wrote? Or do you just assume that as an expert they know what they're talking about?
The numbers quoted in the UK were 17% in London and 5% elsewhere. I think this is around 7% as a national average, so actually about the same as Spain overall.Yes, but we're talking about ratios here. If the infection rate was much higher in the UK, then we'd see many more deaths and hospital admissions.
I'm sure the UK health service is able to do just as good an antibody study as the Spanish system.
I don’t know, my wife witnessed a fist fight in Lidl today. All because they were queueing too long.
Actually it's much worse than that in central government. The lack of promotion prospects due to 'dead wood' means the de-motivation of able people who are not being used or empowered to act to their full potential. Selection to the Senior Civil Service looks for a certain type of person who is is a driven elitist like those already in the 'First Eleven' as their union is known. This leads to dangerous group think and the silencing of those who are not willing to fit inside the box and could offer the needed challenge to the established order. Too much job security often supports a manager turning into a bully because they are fireproof. The civil service often attracts insecure folk who need to climb the ladder of promotion to massage their damaged egos.I believe it's true of all organisations. It's a natural consequence. The qualification for promotion is to be good at the previous role, not the new one. Logically, most people end up one level too high - although some seem to manage to get much higher than that...
Careful with the words. Being spoken to is not the same as being interviewed by the police.
Cummings drove 264 miles to his parents home while he was ill with suspected COVID-19.
He claims he was talking his child to his parents, two vulnerable people.
He was subsequently interviewed by the police.
Surely he must resign.
Depends. That is a snapshot.I think there may have been a little airborne transmission...
In making such a big deal about Ferguson the governments made a rod for its own back on this - they’re going to have to work really hard to explain why Cummings doesn’t resign over thisCareful with the words. Being spoken to is not the same as being interviewed by the police.
Cummings appears to be on the ropes. His potential departure has been hastened by his own actions and the tip-off to the press from somebody who he might have annoyed. Plenty to chose from.
It's not really an opportunity, it's a spectrum of times and situations in which you can receive enough virus - viral load - to become infected.What is the window of opportunity for virus particles?
