I’m negative

Been contacted by Ipsos Mori for a random Covid-19 test. They sent me a test in the post and then collected it by courier.

Today I learned that I am negative. Tried to enter the result into my NHS Covid App but the number wasn’t compatible.

The same happened to another family member who couldn not enter their test result into the NHS app either.

So happy we are.

starts bad, gets worst, ends well – hopefully

2021 was the worst start to any year I can remember. And, I am not even suffering from Covid-19. Though my blood oxygen level wasn’t at its best today, I am not suffering from Covid.

Can’t understand why hospital A&E departments do not take Covid tests as a matter of routine. Because once the patients are there, they might as well take one.

After total Waste-pipe blockages, rendering my kitchen and bath useless, I now also suffered a fall, which resulted in me getting myself to A&E on advice of my GP. I was glad to find out that I still can at least walk.

I can well imagine that almost anybody who saw my black eye, thought that I am a victim of domestic violence. I am not. I took Christmas decorations down and excitedly ran to the door for a delivery, when I fell over a floor cushion, and landed face first in the bathoom door frame.

My eye looked at first like I had a baloon over it. It’s now become the shape of a fancy eye shadow, the discolouration. Just as I do not use make-up.

I won’t post a picture of this because I don’t want to look worst for wear on a blog.

Whilst I was at the hospital, they took my blood oxygen levels twice. The first time. the best it got was 92. A brilliant result should show 95 – 100. Well, I could not breathe freely because I fell onto my body and my ribs hurt me when I breathe in deeply. I also think that wearing the face mask may reduce the quality of the air we breathe in.

Still, they could have taken a Covid test.

All I am hoping for, is that things can only get better and that the year 2021 ends as good as it started bad.

making false hopes for Christmas

We all want to have a good time over the Winter holiday. Nice decorated homes, well cooked meals and some good will never goes amiss, regardless of religion.

But, to use Christmas to show extra generosity and make people believe that Covid-19 can be ignored to have family get-to-gethers when all reasonable expectations are that this will lead to another total lock-down, just about put a dampener on everybody’s enjoyment.

It’s also got a really racist or better religionist tint to it. The government wouldn’t even dream of extra lenience for any other religios festivals at this time of year and declared Christmas the one time, we are allowed to let our guard down.

closing schools?

Why close schools wand blame educational processes for Covid-19? Doesn’t that just show somebody who wants to stop youth from mixing in educational establishments?

A lot of our young people’s learning and personal development is aimed at taking place in the school environment.

Whilst Greenwich follows the Major’s advice and closes all schools tonight, Hackney follows government advice and allows Covid-19 testing for all pupils and families if wished. That also fits in with the request of the Oxford Covid-19 vaccine developers to obtain more test results from carriers who may not have symptoms to enable a more effective development of the vaccine, they are working on.

Our whole family development is more around getting children away from their natural famlies and into the educational institutions for prolonged hours. I doubt that parents – under normal circumstances – even get to see their own children much when they are working.Fair enough, there is the ability to learn through Teams or Zoom but then, there are also a lot of families who don’t have sufficient Internet access yet.

Here in Tower Hamlets around 50% of people do not use the Internet regularly.

I am just perplexed why the media only pushes Sadiq Khan’s request to close schools and doesn’t equally publish about the other education strategies equally strong.

basic health

Just listening to arguments about closing down completely, locally or half or totally, all have as chief argument behind them getting the virus down.

There is just one thing missing, the overall comprehensive overview on what promotes health and stems viruses.

One fact is that healthy eating helps fight infections and fight of virus infections. Some say that a lack of vitamin D for example is a big issue for some people. Fresh food and veg are expensive these days and you need the money to purchase it. How can you purchase fresh fruit and veg if you are struggling to pay the rent because your landlord needs their money?

There should be a change to food banks. We should have supplies of free fresh fruit and veg in areas of deprivation, which would take away the stress of budgeting money and supply those essentials.

Then we get the cleanliness argument, washing hands for 2 minutes with soap is good but going swimming in a chlorinated pool for 1 hour is bad? That is the argument in total lockdowns.

Having a roof over your head, little stress and feeling good about yourself often helps to stay healthy, especially if that is combined with the ability to buy healthy food.

Nobody lives on toilet paper alone.

Scaling up careful behaviour

I already behave more carefully than I absolutely have to. I am aware that Covid can be picked up on public transport and all sharing environments. But then, I am more vulnerable probably due to my age.

The problem for younger people is that they often do not get sick quickly and feel invincible and want to flout lock-downs. They also have their more active hormones to content with. The breeding instinct can sometimes overrule all other reasoning compartments in the brain.

I advise all to be one more step careful than they have to be. I advice people to wear protective face coverings in all shared closed environments and not just in shops.

All communal areas in London are hotspots like all housing environments, which are mostly shared. We hear very little about behaving in stair cases and communal lifts other then housing providers giving recommendations. There is however little enforcement and everybody relies on common sense, which can be missing in some people.

To avoid complete lock-downs we have to rely on people’s common sense.

self-isolate

Imaging a DALEK going round spurting out ‘self-isolate’ self-isolate all day long.

Indeed Hygiene is the big preventer on infections and of course-self-isolation helps spread the virus but doesn’t make others more resiliant to it.

Just as we are told to wash our hands for 2 minutes with soap, swimmers actualy spend prolonged time in the magic liquid called water, enhanced with the cleaning agent chlorine. Perhaps more people should take a regular sheep-dip in water to cleanse the whole body.

I won’t blog much about Covid-19, as there is a hunt on bloggers who may spread false information. A 10k fine for failure to self-isolate is a lot of money, perhaps mirrored in the fact that the UK government has borrowed record sums to make up for economic and tax losses. The fines reflect that. Why do taxes always depend on wrong-doing?

You get taxed for eating lots of sugar, smoking, drinking, having cars, fined for breaking rules. Government would be stuffed if nobody had unhealthy livestyles nor broke the rules.

The new worldwide empire

I think we are into the Future and worldwide agreements between leaders have nipped most protests into the bud. Perhaps it was the media’s fault but even they don’t report about any life-changing protests around the world any longer.

Whilst the Guardian desperately tries to revive the former Extinction Rebellion movement, the Hong Kong protests have died down with the Corona Virus fears.

Stay at home. That one sentence doesn’t only save the NHS resources but it also stops all protesters from roaming our streets, transport systems and our media.

Fact is that the ne Stay at Home rule is extremely environmentally friendly. Wordwide carbon production has greatly reduced. So all those who bought properties in vulnerable socialist run areas, to infultrate our society with ever growing environmental protest groups have wasted all their money and energy.

Environmental protests have been bought by left-wing activists to harm established production chains and turn society around.

Whilst I do not believe that Corona Virus is a new virus, I believe it has only now formally been identified and discovered. And in future world governments will probably fall into a new cold war over the decision whose fault Corona Virus actually was.

Obvioulsy all the western nations love to see China as the culprit.

Corona Virus is the new weapon of international law enforcement to keep the population in control.

Concerning is the fear that was voiced by some doctors that all people who fall ill will be treated as Corona Virus patients and regardless of their actual illness get put into one of these huge new hospitals and put on ventilators. There are no testing kits widely available and you may well have another illness but get treated for Corona and die away in an anonymous bed.

Elderly patients are asks to sign a ‘Do not resuscitate clause’ upon entering a hospital and we are all best advised to avoid having accidents because we may not get the treatment we need.

For those who got the virus, it seems an agonising time but for those who stay healthy and fit, they do not know what all the fuss is about.

Lets just compare statistics and find out whether the death rate that has now been attributed to Corona virus is actually much higher than the normal death rate. Don’t we have people dying of illnesses anyhow? Why do all people who die now suddenly all die of Corona Virus?
