I wonder how many, if any of the newly diagnosed cases had attended the anti mask demonstration.
My consultant told me he's sure there will be a vaccine very soon. He also said the disease mainly effects non-white people so I'm not sure I should be listening to him.
Yep, feel the same. Thanks for the warning @egg_ very best wishes to your other half. That's very tough.Thanks for this , its a wake up call I needed to hear and I wish yer missus get well soon big time.
Ah. Good to know he isn't a weirdo white supremacist type.he’s referring to people with darker skin tone actually being more susceptible to the worse symptoms. It’s to do with pigment and vitaminD processing. I read somewhere about what he’s talking about. He’s not completely mad.
Dunno about vaccine though
The lancet from August has thisthat vitamin D thing was being talked about in the early days, haven't heard much about it since.
the theory seemed to be that having darker skin is correlated with coming from (well, your genes coming from) a region of high sunshine, so your body is not going to need to produce VitD as efficiently as someone whose genetic background is from scandinavia, for example.
thus dark skinned people who live in northern countries don't produce as much vitamin D.
