Thanks chaps.  Here's something to ponder.
111 assessment Covid 19 +ve.
999 assessment +ve and advanced symptoms
Ambulance assessment +ve and causing fluid on the lung.
Hospital test Covid-19 -ve but a severely infected lung. So discharged with some antibiotics.
That's a big relief, but at any other time he would have been kept in. What's clear is that if you don't have the virus you will be sent home, however bad you are.
So don't for chrissake do anything silly!

Hopefully he'll start rapidly improving.  Fingers crossed.  All the best.

What is the proper term for the entire island (including Ireland)?
The Islands?  The British Isles.

I don't expect anyone foreign to tell between a Serb, Croat, even less between a Vojvodinian and Southern Serb.
Yeah I stuggle with it all, just a bit :lol .  But having been to Albania some years ago, and I also remember the conflcit in the former Yugoslavia (where I went on holiday as a child) I am aware of the sensitivities.

Just like "Americans" are all just Americans
Dunno that'd I'd go as far tae say that. :lol

I presume that most of the members are from the island.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
Aye, but not all from the countries that make up the UK, consider themselves British, though technically others would argue, whether they like it or not, they are.


Don’t worry about it!   :lol

Foc-u, however, until now, has painted me a picture of the damn Brits as being a rather sensible and productive folk - with absolutely minimum amount of trolling and flaming per post here (my subjective opinion). And loads of excellent technical advice.
Damn Brits?  Good god!  What are you on about!  Not all on this forum are damn Brits :evil   I’m no more a Brit than you are! >:   Well OK, apart from a slight foccin technicality.  :o

Apologies in advance if this ends up as "moralizing drivel".
No, but I rather suspect the UK is not the only country in the world with raised alcohol consumption just now.

Aye, perhaps here, but have you tried twitter? ;)


Talking of Twitter, I have seen numerous such posts stating that Johnson has got what he deserves.  Whilst I detest the man, I still do sincerely hope he recovers, fully and soon.  Boris Johnson was a fit and healthy man, a man with considerable energy and determination – those who are taking pleasure in his suffering just now, well they better watch oot fae the Covid.

Okay then, we'll play by your rules then.
 
 
You're an impossible, self righteous, loud mouthed c**t.
 
 
NOT name calling......rememeber, it's just what you are. 
 
No what you are doing darrsi is name calling.  You are doing so because you are either unable to accept that others have opinions and views that differ from your own,or, as we can see, you are unable, or unwilling to address the substance.
 
But feel free – call me what you want – it will always tell us so much more about you, than it will  ever say about me.

SEE SYNONYMS FOR insult ON THESAURUS.COM
verb (used with object)to treat or speak to insolently or with contemptuous rudeness; affront.to affect as an affront; offend or demean
It says nothing about whether or not what is said is true. After all if you call a fat person fatty or a bald person baldy or a snowflake a snowflake is it not still an insult?

 
For fucks sake – we are discussing politics.  I am not in 10 downing street, or in conversation with the PM – we are discussing him as we are free to do.
 
Are we to deny what he is?  Are we to deny what he does and what he says?
 
Is Boris Johnson a racist – yes he is.
Is Boris Johnson homophobic – yes he is.
Is Boris Johnson a bigot – yes he is.
Is Boris Johnson misogynistic – yes he is.
Is Boris Johnson a liar – yes he is.
Is all the above true and factual – oh yes.

 Meanwhile,
In the UK.
Total tests carried out – 253,000
Total positive – 51,600
Total deaths – 5373







In Germany
Total test carried out – 920,000
Total positive – 103,700
Total deaths – 1,822
It pays to listen to the experts.

 I hope the PM makes a speedy and full recovery.
 
The other aspect is.  Mr Johnson is a fit and healthy man.  A man also with considerable energy and drive.  Let’s be honest, when it was first announced he had contracted Covid19, we all thought a week or so in isolation and he’ll be back at No.10 none the worse.
 
Clearly Covi19 is not the flu.  It’s much much more contagious, it already mutating, and if you catch it, which is highly likely, there’s no knowing quite how it will affect you, that is if it affects you at all.

Someone just had to say something out of order didn't they! The man is in intensive care fighting for his life.
Well done for stepping up Grahamm.....you complete and utter tosser. 



 
Error 404 (Not Found)!!1

 
Look Boris Johnson is a racist, homophobic, misogynistic liar.  He’s an Eton boy, a Bullingdon club member, a man who believes it is his destiny and his right to lead this country. 





A man of such great importance and entitlement, so much so that BREXIT was just an opportunity to further his career and carve a route to becoming PM.  We all know that deep down Johnson does not believe in BREXIT – he believes only in himself. 





His party has failed over the years to the follow the advice of the WHO.  And whilst this mess is not entirely Boris Johnsons fault, the government continued under his stewardship to ignore the advice of the WHO.  Don’t forget that this is a government that has ‘had enough of experts.  They know best.





We are, as a result of the arrogance and selfish entitlement of the Tory party completely unprepared for this event, an event that the WHO has been telling us for long and weary is not if, but when.




Let’s be clear, we are facing, in the UK, not just the greatest health care crises in modern times, but also the biggest, deepest recession any of us will have ever seen, and I hope will ever see.  The impact of both aspects of this Covid19 event will be so much harder because the people of the UK elected a Tory government.




Meanwhile Boris, the man who would be king, the man who lied to us to become king, now lies in one of the numerous hospitals he’d love to privatise fighting for his life. Covid19 cares not for his breeding, cares not for his education, cares not that he is PM - I wish him well. 





But meanwhile lets get through this, lets get to the other end, lets get back to work – then organise, take to the streets, hold a general election, and get these clowns tae fuck.

     Yup it’s been all over the media for the last hour or so.
    The only positive is, according to reports, that whilst he is on oxygen he is not using a ventilator.

     
 
That's NOT what I was saying 

He’s definitely not in a good way, and has been admitted to intensive care.

 So, with Boris not too well, though obviously we all hope he makes a full recovery, will Dominic Raab have to step in?


If you want to get a flavour of the man you could do worse than watch this. Dominic Raab – it’s almost as if he takes a pride in getting everything wrong.
