  1. I believe that there was faulty build 7205 of Active Sky 2016 that caused flashing clouds - could that be the version that you have?
  2. I though that this was interesting on the BBC https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-52754280 It suggests that many patients in ICUs that have serious issues with covid-19 have been found to have greatly reduced T-Cell counts - its implied that the virus is causing this in some way.
  3. Assuming it’s the imperial antibody test, we received ours yesterday. We both tested negative, although my wife’s test failed to produce a result the first time around, so we just retried it.
  4. In January the WHO designated Covid 19 as a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) which is their highest level alert. It is defined as "an extraordinary event which is determined to constitute a public health risk to other States through the international spread of disease and to potentially require a coordinated international response", formulated when a situation arises that is "serious, sudden, unusual or unexpected", which "carries implications for public health beyond the affected state's national border" and "may require immediate international action"
  5. But there is no clear curve, for the days with reliable data it’s been almost flat in the range 70-80 from April 3rd to May 6th. Last time you posted this I said that there was possibly a slight hint of a downturn but that turned out not to be the case. This time there is again a slight hint that the figure for 7th -9th look possibly a little lower than one might expect but we don’t know how they will be revised upwards. 2 of the top 5 highest daily reports for Sweden have occurred in the last 3 days ( although there have been some lower figures recently as well). It isn’t all negative it looks as if Sweden with its slightly more relaxed approach has held things flat, but most other European countries in full lockdown have halved things in the same period so it isn’t true that lockdowns have no impact. Sweden offer some hope that things can be eased a little elsewhere perhaps.
  6. Compare with Sweden as posted 3 weeks ago.... These are graphs of deaths mapped to actual date of death and because there are lags in reporting the bars on the right hand side can give a misleading impression. So the fall on 20th April that was there 3 weeks ago went away as more data came in. Sweden reported 117 new deaths today and 140 the day before yesterday.
  7. After the discussions on antibody testing accuracy my household has been randomly selected as part of a UK government covid19 antibody research study. The invitation I received cautions that the tests currently are not 100% accurate at the individual level They will be sending us finger lancet tests - but we are advised to ignore the results...
  8. This was indeed a missing texture and the OP was able to fix it by copying the light map from another livery.
  9. I have emailed the OP. So far I believe that 1) the Level D-767 works ok with DX10 2) there is a problem with one livery where the starboard side and wings appear black 3) I assume that this is a missing texture - perhaps specular lighting or environment reflections that has not been supplied with the livery. The DX( engine is silently not drawing the missing texture whereas the DX10 engine is using its black default. I have advised to use missing texture alert to identify the name of the missing texture. it may be possible to copy from another livery or to copy and rename the equivalent on the port side.
  10. That sounds strange Indiana seems to have a dashboard here https://www.coronavirus.in.gov/2393.htm If you select deaths in the demographics it seems to suggest that 74% are over 70?
  11. Have you noticed that deaths on the Diamond Princess are still going up - its up to 14 now
  12. The oxford CEBM are big fans of John Snow and his investigation of outliers that might disprove his theory. https://www.cebm.net/covid-19/covid-19-is-lombardy-the-widow-of-hampstead/ They recommend The Betrothed as a masterful description of the plague which describes social distancing techniques https://www.cebm.net/covid-19/covid-19-the-great-plague-of-lombardy-a-not-so-distant-resonance-chamber
  13. Now here is something interesting to discuss. Ireland have published their roadmap about how they plan to open up. https://www.gov.ie/en/press-release/e5e599-government-publishes-roadmap-to-ease-covid-19-restrictions-and-reope/
  14. I can do better for you Noel but again uk only. in the uk we have a minister present every day. This is the latest slide set https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/882878/Slides_to_accompany_coronavirus_press_conference-_2_May_2020.pdf in there are graphs showing numbers of patients over time, number icu beds over time etc.
  15. This study suggests that the statistical average life lost of covid19 victims in Europe is of the order 10 years or more. https://wellcomeopenresearch.org/articles/5-75 this study on uk covid19 patients that were hospitalized suggests https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.04.23.20076042v1.full.pdf 50% were discharged 33% died 17% were still in hospital at the end of the study. Hospitals in the uk, Italy and Spain are state owned and not paid anything by anybody for treatment of any illness. here are some graphs showing uk excess weekly deaths over the last few weeks that demonstrate how severe it is. https://fullfact.org/health/covid-deaths/
