    If I was that nurse/doctor, I'd just let them take him, they've got other patients they can be saving. Then the guy can be done for manslaughter later. I just couldn't be arsed with the level of stupidity of some people.

    Incredible isn’t it. Only even if the bloke signed a release form, at 74% oxygen saturation he’d be deemed unfit to sign legally because of likely confusion & they’re exactly the type of ****s who’d sue!

    As truly dumb as that **** is, he’s not arrived there on his own, he’s been groomed and gaslit by bogus quack deniers and the likes of Icke etc on the net, it’s them who really deserve to be locked up imo.

    this term meant nothing to me until Sunday afternoon. Popped down to see my best mate, and the stories he tells me, ffs..I really don't know how he does it.

    10/ 15 litre bags, at such a %. I realy couldn't be a paramedic, nor a doctor or nurse. Their stress levels must be of the scale.

    I know it seems funny, but aside from that situation, vitamin d deficiency can have quite serious implications to your health and is something that is often over looked.

    Now if that gentleman is old and frail, stays indoors alot (care homes etc), then there could be a possibility of a Vit D deficiency. I'm not saying that would be responsible for covid, but it would affect his overall well-being and strength to fight off the virus.

    I did wonder if it was this deficiency that was to blame for the increased risk to BAME. Don't forget also we have been restricting vulnerable people to staying home (ie indoors).

    It's also not just a case of taking the vitamin to correct it for immediate recovery, it can take several months to get back to normal levels. Fatigue, tiredness and weakness are normally good indicators.

    Worth noting this point is covered off by the NHS, under Coronavirus update;

    https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/vitamins-and-minerals/vitamin-d/

    Coronavirus update
    It's important to take vitamin D as you may have been indoors more than usual this year.
    You should take 10 micrograms (400 IU) of vitamin D a day between October and early March to keep your bones and muscles healthy.
    There have been some reports about vitamin D reducing the risk of coronavirus (COVID-19). But there is currently not enough evidence to support taking vitamin D to prevent or treat coronavirus.

    I highlight this, because it's about your overall well-being that is important, to aid in fighting off any illness.

    Yep. The best way to look after your immune system is to look after your physical and mental health generally. Vitamins won't cure Covid, but don't dismiss the efficacy of a balanced diet, fresh air, exercise, and general wellbeing.

    People are still dying of bubonic plague now. A lad in Mongolia died last year from it after eating a marmot. I’m not entirely sure what a marmot is. Sounds like a beaver- not the Fosse type of beaver.

    Some facts there and some fun.

    More here; https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-55822838

    John Roberts, who runs CMS Wrexham Ltd, next door to the plant, said he heard a "big bang" at about 11:35 GMT.
    "We're next door to Wockhardt. Three of us were talking then we heard a hell of an explosion or a bang," he said.
    "I went outside, couldn't see anything. I looked the other side and two blokes were on the roof.
    "The next thing the police had blocked off the road and were looking in the bushes."
    His son Mark Roberts said: "The police just closed the road off and we've heard there's a bomb disposal unit.
    "They've been here about an hour or so - we're on tenterhooks.
