I know why they don’t but which is a bigger problem for us to solve?

So back to Prince Mark, 189 contacts tested from 191 and all negative but he still wants restrictions after 6pm tomorrow. This guy is out of control. I would like him to table the full medical advice on this. Masks on for another week? Various gathering restrictions? Based on ONE person having the virus.

A study conducted by Manchester University concluded there was no clear evidence that 2020's Covid lockdown had impacted on the suicide rate. There was a caveat in that there was an increase but this could possibly be accounted for by the year on year suicide increase. But in my opinion, the crucial period will come when government furlough payments come to an end. At this point we will be able to see how many businesses are able to keep their staff employed. That could see widespread job losses which may affect mental wellbeing. Alas, it is a bridge we are destined to cross soon and it may not bode well (surely hope I'm wrong).

I donít believe influenza is a Ďcoronavirusí, nor the common cold, which is a rhinovirus. Just for clarity.

No need to believe, it is a fact that the virusses are different for all three of them

Some common cold virus's are coronavirus's.

Four, actually: HCoV-NL63, HCoV-229E, HCoV-OC43 and HCoV-HKU1.

This article discusses them, and the problem of immunity which only lasts around 12 months - a problem that could also exist with SARS-CoV-2 vaccines - we just don't know yet.

Indeed. I think that the prevalence of the rhinovirus version of a cold matches the descriptor Ďcommoní more accurately when considered in the context of Icarus2001ís post. But thanks for that - we are all learning all the time - itís been a very interesting 12 months or so.
