Re: How serious is the coronavirus?

True. Our health authorities for years have denied the importance of Vit D, despite the evidence that at our altitude it is not really possible to get sufficient amounts from sunlight during the seven, eight months of autumn / winter. Herring and cod (liver) are no longer the staple foods either... ...

Re: How serious is the coronavirus?

No. I have been taking 5000 IU for about ten years. Have tested my vit D levels once, and they were OK, but still on the lower side of the spectrum... so it is highly individual how well your body metabolizes it. I have followed the vid D debate for over ten years, and the arguments are still the sa...

Re: How serious is the coronavirus?

Yes. For years, my family and me have taken high doses of D to fight off all viral infections.

about 5000 IU (125 micrograms) is a good daily dose...

Re: How serious is the coronavirus?

So sorry to hear that, Clara. Over here, all of the fatalities so far have been elderly or otherwise immune compromised patients.. But we know now that the virus does not really discriminate between the young and the old, the strong and the weak... People as old as in their 90's have successfully be...

Re: How serious is the coronavirus?

Our government is working on the legal red tape to get the Southern Finland area called Uusimaa separated and closed down. They have the largest number of infections so far, and we do not need any holiday travellers to spread the virus to the rest of the country... If we were in North Korea, all the...

Re: How serious is the coronavirus?

Re: How serious is the coronavirus?

I was one of those people who didn't really take the threat so seriously at first... just take care of the basic hygiene folks, I used to think. Having lived through many health scares already (I remember SARS, the avian flu, the swine flu.. ) I assumed this too would pass fast... I still believe th...

Re: How serious is the coronavirus?

Yes Worth, that is exactly where some people have been living.. under a rock.
No idea about other cultures and civilizations.

Maybe the cloth mask will become the ultimate fashion statement of 2020 ..

Re: How serious is the coronavirus?

Bower, incidentally the same is true for Finland.. some Asian woman was wearing a cloth mask and she was given dirty looks. She shared in a newspaper that Asian coutries consider it a civc duty whenever there is a flu epidemic, but Europe used to think that if you wear a mask, you're already infecte...

Re: How serious is the coronavirus?

I am glad to see a lot of solidarity in Germany in these days. 95% of the Germans agree with what has been ordered from the gvt, only 3% are against it. 2% probably don't know what to think of the rules. Almost everywhere groups have been formed willing to help those who need it without risking to ...

Re: Toilet Paper Rolls

You guys are great.. glad to see you are still laughing :-) There is no need to sow any toilet paper seeds here yet... so far the stores are well stocked.. that may of course change, if the toilet paper producing factories lose their staff to this virus and cannot function properly. Me, I will be st...

Re: How serious is the coronavirus?

Here it is also moving towards complete curfew / traveling restrictions... something that would have been unthinkable some time ago. Some people took off to have their skiing holiday up in the North, away from the corona infected areas, and they are now spreading the virus in new areas... horrible. ...

Re: How serious is the coronavirus?

Some mothers actually prefer to use washable diapers... those who are not used to them most likely won't begin now.. It does take getting used to, in order to be prepared an ready. Ah well today my government declared that people over 70 should be isolated. I am staying at my folks until May, so I w...

Re: How serious is the coronavirus?

I do understand hoarding with those who plan to stay in isolation and quarantine. Also many people stock up for their neighbors and relatives.. but not everyone needs 10 bales of toilet paper. My country is shutting down more and more institutions and events. Really feels claustrophobic already.. I ...

Re: How serious is the coronavirus?

Everything is being put on hold here. The Uni is closed (no events, conferences or teaching), concerts and events are being canceled, and, traveling is impossible. As someone who is a caretaker to my elderly parents, I am 'banned' from traveling abroad anyway.. which is OK, there hopefully will be o...

Re: How serious is the coronavirus?

Ugh. Because of the spread of this virus, my travel plans for the spring have been put on hold.. I so was hoping for a holiday after a long period of family stress, but better to stay very far from airports and public places. Was going to travel to a certain country as my friend is currently there.....

Re: Seeds from Russia, Ukraine, etc.?

I have ordered plenty, some in professional packages. (there were error seeds in some of the commercially packed though.. not always correct..)

Now, the current legislation forbids ordering any seeds from outside EU countries.. shame.. but I got plenty for the next ten years..
