    Thank you all for the kind words.

    If you live on planet earth, you have to get this virus and survive it, a roll of the dice we must all experience. I am 39 and have no medical history. I am day 7 now and still no shortness of breath, but it is something that can come from nowhere so I remain vigilant. Day 6/7 to 12/13 seem to be the dangerous time period according to the data.

    I have a small finger sats probe from university to keep an eye on my O2 requirements, I have made my partner leave whilst I am sick, she is a nurse, a sister in a medical emergency unit. So as I am on my own, its important to be extra vigilant and safe. If I get ANY indication of respiratory issues, I will be calling an ambulance, no ambiguity. I say this in the hope it communicates what we would hope you would all do too.

    I'm aware of the treatments being discussed globally. As doctors we stubbornly attempt to remain skeptical until there is real evidence on them. So as I was asked..... No, I'm not taking Hydroxychloroquine and would not expect to receive it without evidence it is effective and safe via a significantly large study. My patients deserve this as much as I do. There is currently no ICU data and in 22 patients a study could only say viral load was reduced. We await the New York studies etc eagerly. We have dedicated our lives to make humans well, I assure you, we want a treatment ASAP so we can save more lives. Conspiracy theories about concealing treatments etc are just highly insulting at a time when the job is hard enough as it is.

    With regard to antibody rich plasma... now is a good time to make sure any advance directives about blood/products you may have given your doctor in the past are still how you feel.

    Personally,,I'm doing well, I sincerely just want to be symptom free so I can get back to work. It isn't a pleasant experience and I would likely be considered mildly symptomatic.

    Our local stadium has been converted to a 2000 bed field hospital manned by the army. WATCH what your government is doing in preparation to get an inkling of where this is going.

    Lastly, this is not clinical/medical and simply my own reading and findings.....beware the data from communist and dictatorial countries. The data seems to not correlate with nations ....less constrained regarding truth. If you look hard enough the truth is finding its way out however.

    China reported a maximum of 130 deaths in a day and a total of 3 to 4 thousand deaths in Wuhan. Week two and we have more deaths a day in the UK and photos of urns arriving at funeral homes indicate about 40,000 deaths in Wuhan alone.

    Hearing that China have 'conquered' the virus.... leaves me uncomfortable. Also the methods they are using are outrageous.

    Some interesting things I have seen.

    Dear snare&racket:

    Thank you for what you've shared and done to help your fellowman, either up close and personal or from afar, as in this helpful post.

    Cases are now growing in my California county. The situation is becoming very personal.
