COVID-19: QUEEN TELLS UK "WE WILL SUCCEED" IN FIGHT
PROMISING ARTHRITIS DRUG CURED 95 PERCENT OF CRITICALLY ILL PATIENTS!
Tocilizumab, marketed as Actemra, is taken by patients with rheumatoid arthritis. It reduces inflammation, which is considered to be a complication of COVID-19. Chinese doctors gave it to 20 patients during the peak of the countries epidemic. 19 of the 20 were discharged within 14 days despite being critically ill.
Actemra has now been APPROVED for use in China -and has been approved for immediate trials in the US.
CHINESE DOCTORS MAKE PROGRESS IN ITALY
CORONAVIRUS VACCINE: MOVING FORWARD AT AN UNPRECEDENTED SPEED.
About 35 companies and academic institutions are racing to create a vaccine for COVID-19. At least 4 of these have already started testing in animals. The incredible speed of the response is thanks in large to the early Chinese efforts to sequence the genetic material of Sars-CoV-2 the virus that causes COVID-19.
China shared that sequence in early January -allowing research groups around the world to grow the live virus and study how it invades human cells and makes people sick. Confidence is growing amongst scientists that a vaccine will be discovered very soon.
CORONAVIRUS VACCINE BREAKTHROUGH
- The immune system in older people deteriorates and the jab becomes less effective.
- The flu has a habit of mutating into a new strain that the body's immune system does not recognise. New vaccines need to be created against the constantly changing strains.
Typically mortalities from the seasonal flu occur from November to end of March, and on average there are 17,000 UK deaths every year. They play out as 3400 deaths a month, 850 a week, and an average of 121 deaths a day. Unlike COVID-19 this doesn't make the daily news headlines - but it's happening nonetheless. The seasonal flu may not seem like a deadly disease - but for older people, it really is a significant problem every year.
WILL COVID-19 INCREASE THE ANNUAL DEATH TOTALS IN THE UK?
Covid-19 is the product of natural evolution according to findings published today in the journal Nature Medicine. The analysis of pubic genome sequence data from SARS-CoV-2 and related viruses found no evidence that the virus was made in a laboratory or otherwise engineered. "We can firmly determine that SARS-CoV-2 originated through natural processes" said Kristian Anderson, PhD, an associate professor of immunity and microbiology at Scripps Research and corresponding author on the paper.
MORE TESTING REQUIRED
It is known that the vast majority of cases only involve mild symptoms which have not been tested and gone undetected. If we use the experts' predictions "there are likely ten times the amount of people infected". There are close to 1 million people infected with Covid-19 in the UK at this stage of the epidemic -from a population of 66.44 million. That means 1 person from every 66 is -or has been infected. Or you could say 65 from 66 aren't infected, which puts it into better perspective.
An average tube has 8 carriages and carries 1047 passengers, 272 seated and 775 standing. Each carriage carries an average of 130 passengers. If one in sixty-six is an accurate estimate of the current people in the UK infected by Covid-19, it means there are very likely two infected passengers travelling in each over-crowded carriage.
THE SELF-EMPLOYED: A BRIDGE TOO FAR!
On Thursday 26th March Chancellor Rishi Sunak unveiled his aid support for the self-employed. For many, this has been long overdue. And although the announcement has been welcomed, there are a number of exclusions and severe delays for the self-employed to receive first payments.
The biggest disappointment was that the majority of self-employed workers who need support today - or at the latest tomorrow been told that the first payments cannot be expected until June at the earliest. For many self-employed workers, this is a bridge too far.
Importantly there are no company representatives who are ever required to enter the home. The only person who will ever come to a customers address is the appointed door installer - and he works entirely outside with no need to enter the home or for any direct customer interaction.
Using our bespoke "kerbside service" the fitter completes everything in one visit and on the same day. The fitter will measure, fabricate and install the customers' new remote-controlled garage door in approximately 3 hours. All communication between the fitter and the homeowner can be managed over the phone. Payments can be completed electronically. The door is very straightforward to use and the user instructions are published on our website.
HOW ABOUT OUR OFFICE STAFF?
During this crisis, every RDC staff member is able to work from home. This includes the sales centre who have the facility of a state of the art remote switchboard system. Management communicates with all staff members via regular conference calls. We have established a way by which we can continue to trade efficiently and effectively without placing any staff member in a position of risk.
WHY CONTINUE TO TRADE?
There are a number of reasons for us to continue to trade, but perhaps three key reasons.
- To protect jobs and continue to provide our staff with income and security
- To protect the self-employed at a time when they need it the most
- To provide our customers with a unique opportunity to improve their homes using a low-cost solution at a time when they are confined at home surrounded by so much gloom and doom. This neat and unique remote-controlled rolling garage door system is like a little ray of sunshine.
OUR SELF EMPLOYED WORKERS
Like many companies operating in the home-improvement and construction industry, our national compliment of garage door fitters are self-employed. Turning our backs on them in a crisis or in their time of need is not something we would ever set out to do. Instead, what we have done is cut the prices of our remote controlled garage doors to an all-time low, to generate continued business to support these skilled and hard-working craftsmen.
So if you are one of the many that have been considering upgrading your garage door, there has never been a better time or place to do so than now. Not only would you be adding your support to the self-employed in their time of need, but also positioned to take advantage of the lowest ever recorded prices for one of these unique garage doors that uses the highest levels of safety available in the UK market.
Please stay at home in line with the Government Guidelines and we’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support through these unprecedented times.
