A recent study from Stamford University, not peer reviewed yet but interesting nonetheless.
"A new study in California has found the number of people infected with coronavirus may be tens of times higher than previously thought."
"The study from Stanford University, which was released Friday and has yet to be peer reviewed, tested samples from 3,330 people in Santa Clara county and found the virus was 50 to 85 times more common than official figures indicated."
"That also means coronavirus is potentially much less deadly to the overall population than initially thought. As of Tuesday, the US’s coronavirus death rate was 4.1% and Stanford researchers said their findings show a death rate of just 0.12% to 0.2%."
"The study has been interpreted by some to mean we are closer to herd immunity – the concept that if enough people in a population have developed antibodies to a disease that population becomes immune – than expected. This would allow some to more quickly get back to work, a strategy currently being deployed in Sweden. But researchers behind the study said not to jump to conclusions or make policy choices until more research has been done."
"- That the necessary steps are taken to guarantee non-partisan coverage in State and public-service media." - i really don't think that the UK meets that criteria.
It is a fully blown specific criminal offence to reveal details of postal ballots. It is also a criminal offence to attempt to ascertain the voting pattern during verification (counting does not happen till tomorrow). Maximum sentence 6 months imprisonment. https://t.co/KGDgWlOZdG
"Protesters" with umbrellas for protection against the rain...or is it protection from prying cameras?
One #HongKong citizen is assaulted by tens of protesters at the same time. I have to say, these rioters are cold-blooded and have no mercy. They are fighting for democracy by the way of despotism and violence. So ironic! pic.twitter.com/m2ePUcBPEs
