Covid-19 Revisit

No, the prosthetic is fine. Sometimes some big tendons detach from the hip. I chose the shot (morphine?) in the spine, not gas. Like I said, something transient is all it was, thank goodness! It is still MUCH less pain than having the osteoarthritis now 8 years more advanced. One more replacement when I am in my 80s. That appointment yet ANOTHER complication!

Getting closer to 3 Nov, the appointment re the cochlear implant.
Yeah that big tendon that runs across , connects then runs down the joint.. that is a problem but... if I got surgery for every spinal hip neck etc etc problem I'd never get out of hospital. I just just don't want to go there, and pain management has become quite sophisticated. I used to take morphine, on and off, but UMM I've found Pregabalin, red wine, and Pot work really good together.!!

Hemp oil for me.

Never took morphine except the Endones after the hip op. Pre the operation I took about half a Mersyndol day strength tablet about once a year with the useless Panadol Osteo when pain was most severe—bought a packet of those just before they stopped being sold, don’t even know where it is.

Paracetamol ( Panadol) is poison for your kidney and liver, if you take them long term.

I personally knew people who swallowed them all day long.. bad back etc.. now..? homebound kidney transplant waiting to die.. younger than I am.

Big pharma is not a joke or a conspiracy theory.. I vote for homegrown goodness.

No, needed to be pretty bad pain. Fish or hemp oil anti inflammatories better. But osteoarthritis is not fun.

My kidneys are fine. The osteo tablets are 675mg of paracetamol, not to be taken like candy!

so there continues to be bad news from overseas. Some people here seem to think it doesn't matter what happens overseas.

To me that is head in the sand stuff.

I mean Seth, you must know that 700+ people A DAY, are dying in your country.
You have nothing to say about it, and I guess IF I lived there, I WOULD BE ASHAMED to acknowledge this awful ongoing death rate myself. I would be appalled at the lack of care and management.

Luckily for me, I don't live there. You may think you are not going to have to deal with this BUT... I fear for all Americans. .

Dunno what it is like in Seth’s neck of the woods but like most of us he would be vulnerable.

The United States shows more CASES than other countries, which the Lamestream Fake News Media pounces on daily, because it TESTS at such a high (and costly) level. No country in the world tests at this level. The more you TEST, the more CASES you will be reporting. Very simple



He is so fucking stupid, everyday he just lowers the bar a bit more.........
ohh just for the record USA is 20th in testing rates......
eg UK has 10% higher testing rate and 40% of infection rate compared to USA.....

It is pretty obvious.

He is a LIAR.

Liars , especially those that live in a fantasy of their own creation, CANNOT HELP THEMSELVES.
Lying is utterly addictive, and telling a lie is better than telling the truth, EVERY TIME.

Liars think they are being smart, evading their enemies.. They are paranoid freaks, who, knowing what they are capable of, LIE to hide their true nature. Every day is a LIE.

Hospitals are strained in several states including North Dakota, which is the hardest hit based on recent new cases per capita, according to Reuters.

The city of El Paso in Texas is asking residents to stay at home for the next two weeks and the wider El Paso County closed its parks and recreational facilities for 14 days.

Over the last three weeks, the number of hospitalised Covid-19 patients in the El Paso area has tripled to a record 786, according to state data.

“If we continue on this trend, we risk detrimental effects to our entire healthcare system,” the city’s public health director, Angela Mora, said in a statement.

“For the sake of those hospitalised and the frontline healthcare workers working tirelessly each day to care for them, we ask you to please stay home for two weeks and eliminate your interactions with those outside your household until we can flatten the curve.”




Good luck with that QLD couldnt even get people not to lie when they half closed the borders....

Earlier reports from Kashgar in the Chinese province of Xinjiang described flights being cancelled in and out of the region, with 15 new cases across the country and 405 asymptomatic patients under observation.

Now an official from Xinjiang health commission has said that 137 new asymptomatic cases have been detected in the region.

This a pic of volunteers at the factory... this is why China has such a low infection rate and USA doesn't....

Some doctors and nurses in Belgium who have tested positive for Covid-19 have been requested to keep working if they have no symptoms, the BBC has reported.


Several hospitals in the city of Liège have made the request as they deal with a surge in coronavirus admissions.


One of the worst affected areas in Europe, hospitals in the city have started transferring patients elsewhere and cancelled all non-urgent surgery, and the situation is exacerbated by a shortage of staff.


A quarter of medical staff in Liège are reported to be off work with Covid-19, the BBC reports, and another 10% of staff who have tested positive but are asymptomatic have been asked to continue working.


The president of the Belgian Association of Medical Unions, Dr Philippe Devos, said there is a risk of passing on the virus to patients but the hospital system could collapse within days if action is not taken.



This is what we are stopping with good lock-down policy......
