I'm sure he'll try and get around it but I understand his term finishes legally on January 16th election or not and Pelosi would then be in charge.

 

Apart from the man himself exploding to the point of rather nuking his own country, I could see that causing almost civil war due to his moron cultists.

The first part is true but unfortunately the part about Pelosi being in charge isn't quite accurate. She's a member of the House of Representatives and so her term expires every 2 years and she has to get re-elected. Her, Trump's, and Pence's terms all finish on the same day. The next in the line of succession is the Senate president pro tempore whose name I don't know off the top of my head but who is guaranteed to be a Republican, as the role is traditionally given to the oldest sitting Senator from the majority party.

Just went out with the boy for a bike ride, I thought 

“ We’ll go past Hillheads Farm shop and get some fruit while we’re out.”

There’s a big sign at the door saying stay 2m apart, do not go within 1m of till area until called,etc. 
I looked in and it’s fucking rammed, no one taking a blind bit of notice, and at least 60% elderly and/or fat as fuck. 
 

Darwinism.

The exclusive NHS shopping times are a godsend. Everybody respects social distancing. Same working here at hospital, I actually feel quite secure. And there are so few kids at school they are also socially distanced. Which is great but sad as fuck they are going through this.

Were you on an ACE inhibitor or ARB? These are thought to worsen coronavirus, should you contract it. Don't worry if you run out of any blood pressure tablets, they're for longterm prevention and the risk of say, 6 months, stoppage is minimal. 

Now you've got me researching - I'm on Amlopodine which I understand is a calcium channel blocker and not ACE or ARB - is that correct and is it okay in terms of covid-19?

Yeah, the issues are specifically with angiotensin drugs. The virus enters the cell through the angiotensin receptor from what I understand. 

 

Happy for the distraction tbh.

Prince Charles tests positive

This line in the BBC report about Prince Jug Ears.

”It's not a huge house but certainly big enough to isolate yourself within it. “

I take Candesartan daily. 
 

Should I be shitting my pants? 

 

Yep. Probably worth seeking medical advice rather than a random from the internet though. I do have a PhD in pharmacology, but probably from before candersartan was invented. :)

 

There's an excess of deaths associated with hypertension,  but this may be due to ACEIs and ARBs rather than the condition itself. Same with diabetes. Quite fascinating really.

Would be a positive result if it wiped out those cunts anyway.

Looks like possible progress on mass testing today - actually give me a little bit of hope.

What’s the crack with these NHS volunteers? I understand that we can’t have the NHS at breaking point but surely it flies in the face of telling people to stay in ?

The Tories are new to this socialism lark, give them some leeway ;)
