It doesn’t bring me some hope or reassurance because it is still all speculation and it is statement like this that are encouraging people to break social distancing guidelines all over Spain and the U.K.

Beware of Fake News.

There is no real indication that the Virus is burning out, on the contrary, in Africa, the virus is just starting its destruction.

Agree. Was interested enough to research the chap. An intelligent guy no doubt but questionable track record.

Hi rob

This post was to try perk us all up a bit. I would hope we’re all responsible and well informed enough to know we still need to be very cautious and follow the safety information 

My intention was meant well since we all are feeling a bit nervous and possibly desperate to try out out a little bit of hope 

Stay safe

Hi despegue

Hadn’t meant to put out any fake news. Just a glimmer of hope to keep us going 

I try to keep positive in these hard times in contrast to all the doom affecting the mental health of so many

Stay safe

Thanks Carole.  If you can find similarly positive, qualified opinion from a virologist, rather than an oncologist, that would definitely be worth sharing.

As Adofeegs has said, this chap may be excellent in his field, but he does have some credibility issues:

No worries, 

The guy is just infamous in the aviation industry and known as a total fraud.

He was one of the “doctors” who decided to let the Lockerbie bomber out of jail as “he only had to live another 3 Months”. In reality, it were the Libyans who asked him to to tell this, misleading the commission. The only thing he cares about is money and attention.
