Services made free during coronavirus

I thought this probably should have its own thread.

I already mentioned that Pluralsight (https://www.pluralsight.com/) have made all their courses free for April. Unity has opened up their Unity…

One the possibilities (and I suspect quite a strong one) is that it's less lethal than we know so far, because of a huge mass of mild or non-symptomatic cases. That's good for the overall death rate,…

Yeah, there is a lot of concern about low-quality, inaccurate test kits being put out there. There is at least one promising test kit being developed over here, but that's thought to be months away…

Yes, those types of rapid, easy test kits can sometimes be developed. The trouble is, all these things take time, and it seems unlikely we'll have that soon enough to help with the critical early…

Yes, no argument from me - this is not the way to go. The problem is that some of the older generation are unmoved by that kind of talk. I just found that emphasising that one's carelessness could…

My folks have been good. I've been telling them for weeks that I didn't like the look of this one, and what was coming. Got them stocked up before the panic-buying began. They know I'm not an…

Yes, it's hoped to be somewhat improved by the warmth and different behaviour patterns in the summer. One of our predictions expects to build to a severe peak in May/June, and then recede somewhat,…

The virus on surfaces survives for less time at higher temperatures, but is by no means "a goner". The primary route for transmission is close contact, and that can occur just as well in hotter…

Yeah, I'm no epidemiologist, but I talk to some folks in the NHS who definitely know the score, and deal with the non-public reports. There is no expectation of this being anything but a long,…

Food itself is not considered much of a risk for this type of virus - it's not the kind that has fun in the digestive system. I'm sure they're being careful with plates and cutlery, so hopefully that…

The trouble is, most of our countries have too many infections now, and in order for that strategy to work, you'd need a hard lockdown - a Chinese style house arrest for most of the population,…
