  • They have been going bust for a long time. Internet shopping is much easier and usually cheaper. I only shop on the high street in charity shops.

    I received my back support from Nuovahealth today, which is pretty good going considering there is a major lock down happening. For instance I have ordered other things from Ebay and Amazon at the start of this outbreak weeks ago and still those thing have not arrived. I have been wearing the support for the most part of the day today and it is…[Read more]

  • I’ve heard that the false negative rate is lower in areas with the longest experience of covid19 such as London, compared to other areas only just experiencing higher volumes and that this is down to inefficient sampling/swabbing. Areas which have been swabbing the longest have learnt to really get in and scrape a decent sample whilst areas just…[Read more]

  • yocal replied to the topic COVID Stats in the forum Banter 6 months, 1 week ago

    Good links to data but i still can’t see a hospital admissions rate data set.

    I reckon that is the most useful because:

    Not everyone who has it will get tested, and not everyone who has it will pass away, but everyone who has it severe enough will likely end up in hospital. So by tracking hospital admissions rates due to COVID then i reckon that…[Read more]

    Anyone know where to find all the COVID stats. We only seem to get daily reporting on death rate.

    I’m more interested in hospital admission numbers as it’s a leading indicator, whereas deaths are a lagging indicator.

    Hospital admissions, numbers in ICU etc are more interesting. If those are coming down already, or still plateaued, or (i hope…[Read more]

  • To be honest, this is probably one of the major failings of Boris’ attitude to the pandemic, when we could all see it coming.

    Even now, there asking for people who’ve had CV-19 to take part in trials of convalescent plasma clinical trials, but since we didn’t test loads of people, that’s going to limit the people who can volunteer to those that…[Read more]

    ………They’re not Richmond are they ??

    British pork Cumberland sausages seasoned with pepper and parsley it says!

  • yocal replied to the topic Sausages for Idiots in the forum Banter 6 months, 1 week ago

    Cheers, I don’t have a thermometer and don’t want a case of botulism (can I get that from bangers?). Might have to get creative and dig some chops out of the fridge instead and have the sausages tomorrow.

  • yocal started the topic Sausages for Idiots in the forum Banter 6 months, 1 week ago

    Cooking frozen sausages… It can’t be difficult but Ive never done this yet. I could google it but the instructions say they have to be thoroughly defrosted for 24 hours prior to cooking which could mean I’m stuffed.

    I don’t want your pity thanks just some gastronomic advise.

    Thanks!

  • yocal replied to the topic What is furlough for? in the forum Banter 6 months, 2 weeks ago

    There are many businesses that are viable normally, but currently have little or no income due to there being no customers (hotels, restaurants, bricks-and-mortar retailers, travel companies, and many others).

    Not many can afford to pay wages for more than a month or two when they have no income, so they’d simply be going out of business at a…[Read more]

  • yocal replied to the topic Lockdown extending? in the forum Banter 6 months, 2 weeks ago

    Businesses and the self employed are very much interested in an indication of what’s going to happen with regards exit strategy, I personally have some serious choices to make with regards work and finances as are many people I know, painfully and blindly drifting into bankruptcy is where we’re at.

    after some initial very late but decisive act…[Read more]

  • A significant number of human lives depend on people in the government paying attention, thinking clearly and managing risks effectively. They have enormous resources available to help them in this.

    It’s absolutely right that there be pressure on them to execute accurately and that they should be called to account when they haven’t done those…[Read more]

    Thanks for all the responses. I have decided to buy this back support from them:

    I will post a mini review here when I get it.

    Hey guys I have been suffering terribly recently with Sciatica. Being stuck in thanks to this coronavirus lockdown has not helped much either. So, I have decided to buy a back support to try and ease my lower back pain. I have found one from NuovaHealth.co.uk which looks good. I’m looking for something to arrive quick, but with current coronavirus…[Read more]

  • yocal replied to the topic Lockdown extending? in the forum Banter 6 months, 2 weeks ago

    Figures produced by a COVID sub committee suggested that more people could die as a consequence of the lock down than the virus itself. Hospitals are finding for example that people who previously would have presented with heart conditions and other conditions are not are not turning up at A&E. What I don’t understand is why the media is happy…[Read more]
