YouTube bans all conspiracy theory videos that falsely claim '5G causes coronavirus'
www.mirror.co.uk/tech/youtube-bans-consp...eory-videos-21828585

And the ban-hammer has spoken. I'm in two minds about this. Whilst I do think it is important to keep facts true and the truth factual, I wonder if the outright banning of such video's will spark a feeling of deception amoungst the people. This could have a negative impact as people may think 'if it is ban worthy it could be true!' I would have much preferred our government to come out and (show us and) say "This is what a 5G transmitter/mast/antenna panel looks like. As you can see this 5G equipment is not what you are burning, those are 4G. We have fitted little 5G kit so far and 5G does not cause coronavirus because of [detailed scientific explanation.]" We don't see the latter and I have seen very little (pictures/specs/equipment) of the 5G kit itself, especially the phased array MMIMO flavour, which I believe we don't have any fitted and active yet. What I have seen though looks very different to the current 4G antennas/radios. The 5G kit I have seen looks very much like a large pizza box on the outside and lots and lots of tiny antennas inside (like tiny dipoles) all staggered horizontal and vertical. Much different to the slotted waveguides and panels that 4G uses. Also there appears to be many more cables from the radio to the antenna panel. I suspect these are multi-cored coax, and a number of them to connect up each element in the panel to the antenna switch. And yeah, it may be based on weapons technology as phased arrays were invented after WWI as massive radars and then in WWII or just after they were playing with them at super high power and frequencies and what we see now with these 'crowd control' weapons(?) are the fruit of that research back then. Both 5G (certain flavour) and crowd control weapons use phased arrays but the driving kit is very much different. Crowd control weapons also require a silly amount of power and as it stands you won't see them hand held or portable and only attached to a vehicle as they require the engine to generate the power required (1kw+). Sorry for rambling.....So ya, if only they would actually show us the phased array 5G kit and it's power levels etc, chip sets used so we can grab the datasheets and then it could be proved they are not what people think they are.

The Mammut radar was an early phased array, and I think (but don't quote me) that the Duga radar was also a phased array. These are from years ago and of course massive due to their frequency and power capability

Wow! I'm lost for words on this one........

'Sacrificing the elderly' - Care homes asked to take COVID-19 patients

A care home owner in Devon has described the policy as "importing death into care homes" and has accused the government of sacrificing the elderly.
New government guidelines say negative tests for coronavirus are not required prior to the admittance of a new patient.
Care homes could also be asked to take in people currently living in their own homes - without any kind of testing for coronavirus.

This could be tantamount to murder, no?

'Coronavirus lockdown won't end until we are sure the peak has passed': Now Prof Chris Whitty plays down suggestions disease will hit its height this weekend - and claims antibody tests WON'T be key to getting UK moving again (my highlight)

Discussing the antibody tests, which would show if someone has has a minor case of the infection and recovered, he said they would will be more effective 'later in the epidemic'.
Because of the slow way antibodies are generated and the relatively small percentage of the population likely to have caught coronavirus so far, the tests are currently of limited use, he told the daily press conference.

www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8192957...or-Chris-Whitty.html

I'm calling bullshit on this one. I'm also getting tired of the governments flippy-floppy rhetoric of 'oh, this will make things better' then 'oh, actually it won't.' I reckon they have cocked up, missed the boat, got it wrong, been supplied dodgy kits, something else that makes them less effective. But instead of saying that they are now back at 'oh well, it might not work properly until later in the pandemic.' Rubbish! They either work or they don't. If people that have the antibody can be proven then there is only good to come from this as said person can get back to work, get back in society, whatever. Once my back gets better, if we are still in a lockdown and if I'm still short of work, I'm thinking of volunteering for helping old people get shopping and stuff. Nothing major, just a little help for my neighbours and such. My wife is asst. manager to a store and she sometimes drops things off for people on her way home. I could do that and it would help them and also me to be out of the house. So my point is that if I were to have the test and it proved that I had the antibodies then I would be OK amoungst those that have COVID-19 and those that don't. How can that not help?

Testing is way down today. From 13313 yesterday to 4344 today. Big drop. They state there is a processing delay. Whilst new cases are down on yesterday we hit the highest amount of deaths per day yet. Of those (4344) tested, 83.7% were positive! That is the largest number of positive cases per test period yet! The highest was 47.9% on the 5th April before today's whopper of 83.7%. The numbers for today don't seem right. It could be the delay they mention is the cause for this. Will have to keep an eye on the numbers and see how they pan out tomorrow.

Total confirmed cases are at 55,242, with 3634 new cases, down 168 (4.5% decrease) on yesterday. Total deaths are 6,159, with 786 new deaths, up 347 (56.7% increase) on yesterday. Total tested this (24h) period, 4344.

As of 9am on 7 April, 266,694 tests have concluded across the UK, with 14,006 tests carried out on 6 April. Some individuals are tested more than once for clinical reasons.
213,181 people have been tested, of whom 55,242 tested positive. Today’s figure for people tested does not include Manchester and Leeds due to a data processing delay. The tests concluded figure excludes data from Northern Ireland.
As of 5pm on 6 April, of those hospitalised in the UK who tested positive for coronavirus, 6,159 have died.

It looks like yesterday's test figures have caught up today with nearly 20k tests done. We saw similar back in March 20th/21st. We are also very close to 1000 deaths per day. The 'scientists' reckon the peak is going to be over the Easter weekend and I tend to concur from following the numbers and comparing against the trends in Italy and Spain. It will more than likely keep rising over the next few days then start to plateau over the weekend, give or take a couple of days. Providing nothing crazy happens we should start to see a decline in about a week. It is then going to take a good 2/3 weeks for the numbers to come down as positive cases recover or sadly don't. I suspect hospitals are going to become very busy over the next couple of weeks.

Total confirmed cases are at 60,773, with 5531 new cases, up 1987 (41.4% increase) on yesterday. Total deaths are 7,097, with 938 new deaths, up 152 (17.6% increase) on yesterday. Total tested this (24h) period, 19527.

As of 9am on 8 April, 282,074 tests have concluded across the UK, with 14,682 tests carried out on 7 April. Some individuals are tested more than once for clinical reasons.
232,708 people have been tested, of whom 60,773 tested positive. Today’s figure for test data does not include Charing Cross and Southampton due to a data processing delay. The tests concluded figure excludes data from Northern Ireland.
As of 5pm on 7 April, of those hospitalised in the UK who tested positive for coronavirus, 7,097 have died.
