    Just recalled from when I worked in Infectious Ward in the nineties and the constant changing of PPE during a shift. All PPE changed every patient every procedure. Fifty to one hundred changes a day was the minimum. This raises another issue which seems could create another problem. You cant wear gloves without changing them after every person interaction. The frequency of changing gloves should be the same frequency as washing your hands.Wearing one pair of gloves for a day in a potentially infectious job can be far more dangerous than not wearing any gloves at all. CARONAVIRUS is not going away soon. Bottman

    One mistake obvious to me is people state the cause is a certain thing but reality is it is certainly a lot of things. Facemasks, yes, faceshields, yes, gloves yes, virus filters on airconditioning ,yes, washing hands ,yes, changing PPE regularly, yes, social distancing, yes, isolation , yes, footbath,yes, . Thats a minute thought and I have come up with ten precautions to help prevent spread of Caronavirus. Every topic listed is critical in the control of Covid 19. Depending on your circumstances some or all the controls must be used. Do the lot and your and your family are less likely to become infected. Why am I repeating this message over and over , its the same technique used by advertising the world over. I DONT WANT TO LOOSE FAMILY AND FRIENDS FROM A DISEASE WHICH IS GOING TO BE A THREAT TO ALL OF US.Bottman

    Victoria, Australia, is now going through another lockdown. Is it because some people are ignoring the social distancing rules by doing the elbow tap? I have just thought up a name ignoring social distancing for it along the lines of the me too movement. I call it the THEM TWO MOVEMENT , as seen by Scott Morrison and Anthony Albanese .because they have both been seen on tv doing an elbow tap. On first sight it appears quite harmless but it is social touching none the less. What was seen as quite harmless but turned out be really very important in the Brucellosis eradication program in the 80s was picking up every carrier of the disease. Similarly we will have to identify every carrier of Covid 19 and make them quarantine for two weeks so that they cannot spread this virus. So new advice from me is, no elbow tap , keep away from Scott Morrison and Anthony Albanese , use a face mask in crowds , use only common air conditioning which has virus filters .Cheers Bottman THEM TWO (c) or TT (c).

    So why so much fuss about social distancing? 2m in some countries 1.5mm in others. Answer is the cloud of virus infested air which follows or preceeds a Covid infected person. End of story. The spread and virulence changes constantly with wind speed ,humidity, up or downdraft , temperature, amongst many factors. Closed systems such' as air conditioning with recirculation with no virus filters are a major risk factor. Airlines have been very quick to recognise this factor and there is very little risk from flying in a well designed plane using virus filters in the air conditioning. So traveling in a poorly designed and/or maintained anything maysubject a person to increased risk of infection. So elbow touching is ZERO social distancing and the Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and the leader of the opposition, Anthony Albanese have been practicing ZERO social distancing from what I have seen on tv. Poor form from Australias leaders. Elbows go to bed, elbows cuddle children, elbows hug grandma, elbows rest on the table while we do many things, elbows can be covered with sleeves or go bare.Elbows rest on elbow rests in homes, trains, taxis , doctors surgeries etc etc etc.As far as being a caring community leader, anyone practicing elbow touching may be regarded as completly ignorant as far as protecting the world community from Covid19 How often do people wash their elbows to decontaminate them??.

    About 1980 till now and we have not developed a cure for AIDS. What hope is there that we will find a cure/vaccine for Covid 19? Both are viruses and both have had many millions spent on research for a control or cure. As the guy said in "The Castle" "your dreaming". We must therefore assume there will not be a cure/vaccine for some time to come and the world must cope with lockdowns and social distancing , and closed borders, and we must develop systems to enable all members of our communuties to live a comfortable safe life. Where my lady lives the council have to patrol the streets and pick up rubbish from where the kids are congregating at night because of boredom and this isexacerbated by lack of jobs. Where are the jobs for our grandkids? Bottman

    So on and on we go with all sorts of public leaders, including the Prime Minister touching elbows as if they are in the know but are the worst examples of how to spread the virus. Elbow touching is touching. Wonder how many people will become infected by watching the Prime Minister touching elbows with that supersillious smug look on his face? Best way to spread the virus is by touching someone. Every possible source of contamination must be eliminated from the equation otherwise it wont go away. The Prime Minister will keep Covid alive and well for all time with his actions.Bottman

    Just read where Trump has cut all ties with WHO. I guess the only other big player is CHINA. If I was china I would play it to the hilt. The World Health Organisation has played a major part in all the pandemics for at least a century havent trhey? Trump may be giving away his TRUMP CARD TO CHINA. Bottman

    DEAR AUSTRALIAN PRIME MINISTER , if its stupid and irresponsible not to wash hands many times during the day, ie every time we touch something, to reduce the chance of cross contamination, then how stupid and irresponsible is it to touch elbows which are only washed once a day (or less) at bath time, or once a week when clothes are washed. Not a clever idea this elbow touching thing where people get this supersillious knowing look as if they are doing something clever. Elbow touching is cross contamination no matter how one looks at it. Bottman
  10. Just remembered how I finish off. To get a tidy end I wrap the superglued bit with tape and cut through it (when its set) using a grinder with a very thin blade. Then use a fat grinding disk to round off the sharp bits. Its all in my new book 101 uses for superglue. Bottman
  11. Use superglue to finish off. Its compatible with all ropes including Dyneema. With dyneema I leave 50mm, 2inches, of the cordage and soak it well with the superglue. If the finishing knot comes undone it will only undo as far as the stiff bit where the superglue is. Works well on thicker lines but the glue soaked bit needs to be longer. I use 100mm, 4 inches, on 12mm dyneema. I use tightly wrapped insulation tape to stop the superglue from wicking past where I want it to go. With double braid I drip the superglue into the end and once again use tape to stop the glue from wicking too far Bottman

    Dear Prime Minister, Just to refresh your memory the Australian Government Department Of Health is still and has for a long time in this pandemic advised, recommented, police enforced, something alomg the line of 1.5 metres separation from all others. I know this because my local supermarket my car parts store, my hardware supplies and the taxpayer funded tv ads, all say the same thing. Where have you been? Bottman

    Hi Wasnt going to post again on this topic but saw our Prime Minister Scitt Morrison at a press conference this morning 26/05/2020 , doing an elbow rub thingy with the first presenter. Is this moronic , or what? touching elbows is almost half way to embracing another human. Has Morrison even looked at the legislation he is passing? Touching is touching withn all the potential of transferring Corona virus. So why is the Prime Minister touching another person? Will Morrison now refund all the people he has fined throughthe various police forces in Australia? If he is serious then be serious Scott Morrison Bottman PS full apologies to all the morons out there , including myself.

    Thanks monkey, I havent travelled for fourty years. So I have looked up mad cow disease and its caused by a Prion. Four or 5year incubation period and there is no knowm treatment. A bit like Covid19 as there is still very little known about it. The reason I mentioned footbaths is its cheap and very widely used as a control where transmission of organisms on feet or shoes or tyres MAY be the way its spread. Havent seen a footbath since AG college minimal disease piggery days, 1969.May be a cheap effective additional control method?Bottman We need to try out all possible control methods and with a footbath there are any number of chemicals which may be effective, we just dont know yet. Boating brings out some curious solutions to curious problems and most boat experimenters have some very determined brain cells working overtime ,just look at this forum. This is part of the reason I have continued this post. Commonly called brilliant by their friends or smart arses by enemies, correct?

    Interesting, Multi thom is reading my posts as evident by his downvoting me. You might learn something Multi thom, congratulations. Bottman My previous post asking does anyone have assess to Covid19 was a joke but highly relevant as some of the worlds biggest problems have been solved by people with no experience in the field bot had a lightbulb moment for the solution. Solution for lack of surgical masks in Oz has been partially solved by rejuvenating a thirty year old mask making machine and modernising and improving it. The factory was making 2 million masks a year and can now produce 60 million masks a year , and with no sea transport involved. Come on Trumpeter lets see what you are made of wheres your solution to Covid19?Bottman
