Re: COVID19

You would assume following up individuals diagnosed with the virus via PCR for seropositive serum. Taking serum or plasma at regular intervals over time and using it to conduct inactivating antibody assays in vitro. Culture cells that are permissive for coronavirus infection and run dilutions of se...

Re: COVID19

Haven’t been tested. Is there any point if we had it back in feb? Think you had it. Be nice to know if you had a possibly protective immune response to it.

Re: Transfer news, fake news, baseless speculation, and various levels of truthiness - Season 2019/20

:( That sounds worrying. I guess they’re in a slightly different situation though as they won’t be playing any more games this season. Assuming the season re-starts as expected on the 15th August, the current Premiership clubs have 6wks to sort out their squads. I took a quick look on the London Ir...

Good to see he can get onto the bench for the Blues :). How many games did he start at 13? About 3, with another couple on the wing. He had the problem that Rieko Ioane has decided he's no longer a wing but a 13, so if the Blues didn't play him there, then they'd lose him to another franchise. Of c...

RLB was unbelievably dim to tweet in the first place. If she didnt understand the likely reaction she must have had her head in the sand over the last 4 years. Starmer gave her an opportunity to retract and apologise but she declined to do so. I dont see what other course of action he could have ta...
