The Stay Safe Board / Is Covid-19 Becoming Resistant to Medication?
« on: Monday 08 February 21 06:57 GMT (UK)  »
Clinicians are treating Covid-19 and possibly making the patient antimicrobial and antibiotic resistant.

Preventing the COVID-19 pandemic from causing an antibiotic resistance catastrophe
18 Nov 2020 — According to research conducted by WHO/Europe and reports from the field, the European Region now risks accelerated spread of antimicrobial resistance. The long-term problem of antibiotics being ...

24 Nov 2020 — Stop misinformation about antibiotics for covid -19, or resistance will rise

The Journal of Hospital Infection
Whereas COVID-19 is a viral infection, the pandemic is strongly fuelling direct antibiotic pressure on micro-organisms. It has been reported that 72% of COVID-19 patients attending hospitals have received antimicrobial agents, despite only 8% being co-infected by bacteria or fungi [3]. In addition, several antibiotics have been proposed or explored to treat COVID-19 [1,3].

It is a virus and been taught for years that antibiotics have no value on a viral illness, unless a secondary illness develops treatable with antibiotics.

I often wonder if we are overtreating it in some cases? I was absolutely astounded to hear words on TV from Clinicians ... we shortened the illness by one day using medication.

« on: Monday 11 January 21 10:33 GMT (UK)  »
But, those who had maintained good blood sugar levels and became infected with COVID-19 were less likely to pass away and more likely to improve their COVID-19 health outcomes ...

3 Dec 2020 — Those who had abnormally high glucose levels were more than twice as likely to die from COVID-19, when compared to those whose levels were in a more normal range.

Most Cells require Glucose to function.

Some Scientists feel that consuming too much Sugar which converts to Glucose quickly, allows the virus to enter cells more easily in some, including non-diabetics.

The Stay Safe Board / A Treatment for those Already Exposed to Covid-19 being Trialled?
« on: Saturday 26 December 20 15:18 GMT (UK)  »
"Dr Houlihan, also of UCL Infection & Immunity, said: “We know that this antibody combination can neutralise the virus, so we hope to find that giving this treatment via injection can lead to immediate protection against the development of Covid-19 in people who have been exposed – when it would be too late to offer a vaccine.” "

https://www.uclh.nhs.uk/news/uclh-doses-first-patient-world-covid-19-antibody-trial

According to the UCLH NHS link it suggests the current Vaccine is/are not effective if you have already been exposed to SARS-Cov-2 / Covid-19 disease?

Some exposed to the SARS-Cov-2 Virus / Covid-19 for some time now, had/have no symptons and others with long term associated Covid-19 illnesses were never hospitalised and first ill before freely available PCR Testing (which only seems to have a short window of about a week to test Covid-19 Positive, usually when you can pass it on).

I'm wondering if people being vaccinated now, are getting a Covid-19 specific Anti-body blood Test beforehand?

A few weeks ago our gov.uk website were still advising most readers that they must pay private for a Covid-19 specific Antibody Test. Also the blood (Venous) Laboratory analysed was accepted as the most reliable.

UK antibody testing still depends on your work and which UK country you live in.
