Have you quoted the right document? I cannot see any mention of Covid in it.

in the treatment regimes of the trials...french data wrt treatment  in particular too

we are still awaiting randomised .double blind study results  of HCQ in the early phases of illness ...before the cytokine storm at 10-14 days 

it will not be in the  Product Information because it is being used off licence with government approval...that should tell you something but no conclusive results as yet

The biggie is public transport ....its a nightmare

f**k carbon emmissions...get people in cars   

The only problem with is that in places like London and other capital cities is. That there would not be enough parking spaces and there would be endless traffic jams. But for business and factories outside or on the outskirts of major towns and cities it would be more favourable than using Public transport with people packed into trains and subway etc where no social distance can be applied or is not being applied. 

I won't use public transport at the moment and stick to driving but I am retired now so I don't need to

I see on BBC that Shearings, one of the biggest coach holiday providers in the UK, has went tits up with 2500 jobs lost and over 64,000 bookings gone. Also Hertz car rental has filed for bankruptcy. How many more business's are going to go bust before this ends?

The government should encourage more people to use Scooters in city's, take up the same amount of road as a bicycle and can get 3 or 4 in one car park space

Thus is going to be a slaughter on a scale never seen before.

Good point. 

I noticed. Yesterday though that the Mayor of London has not only increased the congestion charge but also extended the hours. 

But bikes and scooter as far as I am aware are exempt from charges along with Electric cars. 

For some a pushbike ride to the centre of London could be quite grueling but good exercise. Although some may say is f*cking dangerous 💥

I have hidden several posts involving Figjam and fatbhoytim

Maybe the two of you should just ignore one another 

But please leave it out of this thread. 

Many thanks

I am obviously not going to argue the toss with a mod, but my replies were based on this.

A lot of people travel a fair few miles in to London, too far to cycle, so I think they should give incentive to use Scooters. 

Regarding congestion charges its down to emissions and older bikes have to pay full whack. 

It's a big issue at the moment among motorcycle action groups.

What do you class as "scooters" Is that like a vespa or the little electric engine things ? As far as I am aware the electric scooters are illegal here ?

Yep my Harley is non-ULEZ,at present it's only central London but from October next year it's extended to the north & south circulars.OK it's polluting but I've done just over 20k miles in nearly 17 years so I don't think I've aggravated anyone's asthma.

Got you. Sounds like a good idea, which means the powers that be will nix it.

in what way wrong?...unless you are deflecting...your ignorance perhaps

It does make me laugh when someone takes something they have read on the Internet as fact and tries to tell a medically trained person they don't know what they are talking about. 😀
