I have started to populate a C19 database of research articles & links I had put together for interested Patients & Friends, and for ourselves to help decisions.

It is searchable and has a Tag system with a cloud view, to help find stuff, and a roll-over synopsis of each entry.

Let me know if you have any concerns or edits, or indeed whether you have some submissions you think others will benefit from — you can add directly to the submissions board — just send me your email and I’ll set you up with a login.

no login required to view however at http://www.soul-trade.com/C19Notes/

added the RYA C19 advice to a couple of the Sailing/ Boat Club websites I run, and unfortunately the first C19 Death Announcement/ R.I.P

Stay Safe, Stay Home, unless you’re helping

Keep Socially Close, but physically distant

For anyone looking for Leadership in these troubling Times, may I heartily recommend the excellent speech by the EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen — she is smart enough to give you comment —  a superb Stateslady speech – 14 mins, but really worth it.
Succinct detailed, not rhetoric and platitudes, but a meaningful response with strategy, where we were, where we are, and where we need to go and be, and also by trying to balance the recovery growth that will be needed post C19, with climate need, for us to not continually chase and increase GDP growth year on year. “

Interestingly the cross-party UK House of Commons Petitions Committee has chosen this morning — to get Govt to a Committee hearing to answer Questions on Covid within the next few days (circumventing the usual 6 months that even well supported Petitions often need) and I quote here “We’ll email you again to let you know more about the session, including when it’s going to happen, who’ll be taking part and how you can watch it live. We will also email you a link to the video and a transcript of the session afterwards. “

I offered 3 Questions (they give you 50 words)

Qu 1
Will you support a People’s QE; a Universal Basic Income for food, clothing and housing, which, if properly funded, might obviate the need to intervene in Rent arrears, and provide immediate cash to all, without hoop-jumping and complicated costly administrative encumbrance. It would allow those struggling to self-isolate.

Qu 2
Re Testing- Will the Government divert funding for better testing for front line NHS staff, and then to those suspected of having or having had Covid so as to allow for better planning and response and will the Government consider using more University laboratories to be used for testing evaluation?

Qu 3
Will the Government support the EDM 56765 requesting a temporary universal basic income which is a huge opportunity to respond in a timely manner without cumbersome administration to help keep those struggling afloat, and might also help reshape society and the economy for when we come through the other side?


People are the Capital without which, we all eat the less, clothe with less warmth & style, and generally dance less the good Dance.
Implementing a Universal Basic Income*, for food, clothing and housing, if properly funded, might obviate the need to intervene in Mortgage or Bank foreclosure or Rent arrears, and provide immediate cash to all without hoop-jumping and having over complicated costly administrative encumbrance.
It would be a fine form of QE for the people. It would also be a huge opportunity for us to not only respond to the current crisis in a timely manner, but would also help reshape society and the economy, for when we come through the other side.
UK Residents Please Sign & Share this timely Petition that demands We Implement Universal Basic Income to give home & food security through Covid-19 https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/302284

*What might be better than UBI is a Job Guarantee program giving real wages and real needed jobs, properly funded up to full employment, or availability of materials which, if not competing with the private sector, would be a better targeted solution.

Financial Assistance

if you are a sole trader, artisan, or performer who has basically slipped through the funding or grant net, have a look at this list.
There might be a charitable trust who has financial help for you.

    • thx, and yes also some of the pictures are a little large and the user then needs to scroll down, but some of the pics are well worth keeping to a good scale; as always it’s a trade-off
