Corona Virus Update

A valuable question and answer exchange between Lord Jitesh Gadhia and Dr Bharat Pankhania related to Covid-19


  • statistics revealing UK has second highest death figure per million, which shows a high disproportionality affecting the BAME communities.
  • Spread of Covid-19 occurs by infected respiratory droplets

 directly reaching others in a confined space

 contaminating surfaces which are then touched by others who then touch the face and aerosol type spread occurring as a result of speaking loudly etc.

Principal ways of keeping safe included

  • Limiting the number of people encountered and maintaining social distance
  • Maintaining hygiene
  • Keeping several windows open to create a flow of air
  • Washing hands every 2 hours
  • Avoiding crowded places

The Purpose of masks were stated to catch infected droplets. It was advised that surgical masks should not be used. Recommendations were made to sew your own masks ensuring:

  1. All materials are washable and the mask covers the mouth and nose.
  2. Outer layer is a tight weave waterproof material
  3. Middle layer is absorbent
  4. Inner layer is absorbent

To prevent misting up of eyewear whilst wearing a mask Sellotape may be used to seal the top of the mask.

It was emphasised that it is essential to look after your own country as well as poorer countries to ensure the well-being of all.

Reflections from extended Leicestershire Lockdown

C-19 needs to be monitored like a raging fire at a local level.

Patterns of spread need to be rapidly identified locally and acted upon by scrutinising commonalities in postcodes, workplaces etc in instances of C-19 spikes.

With the easing of lockdowns, the following advice was shared relating to potential occasions for gatherings:

Aim to meet outdoors where possible

If meeting inside strictly adhere to social distancing, keep windows open and maintain safe hygiene.

Travel especially overseas was not recommended.

Influenza vaccine was recommended
