    General Discussion/Q&A on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Of more concern to me a high ferritin is also a marker of iron overload.The iron levels particularly ferritin saturation will also be high unlike with an inflammatory response when those...

    General COVID-19 Vaccine Discussion

    No one here is dragging the Chain.Neither the CDC in the USA or the UK body are suggesting that the general public should have a booster shot at this stage though people may have one if they want. Now they began vaccinating 2 months before Australia so any official decision should be at least 2...

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    You totally miss the point.Previous infection is virtually the same in preventing infection as vaccination.So if you believe in the science people with prior covid should have the same treatment as vaccinated folk even if they haven't been vaccinated. However I still urge those who have had...

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    Now this is where the science becomes blurred.Studies show that reinfection is uncommon in those who have had covid and Novak has had Covid 19.
