A Level exam results are out today. However, in England 36% of entries had a lower grade than teachers predicted and a further 3% were down two grades. The confusion during the pandemic regarding the marking scheme which is based on predicted results and statistical modelling certainly has helped with many pupils and teachers left extremely frustrated by today's results. So how do you cope with the stress of receiving exam results that are below expectation?
A new report from the Institute of Neurology at University College London had described cases of brain inflammation, stroke, delirium and nerve damage arising from COVID-19, the clearest sign yet that Coronavirus can cause nerve damage.
The study looked at 43 patients with covid-19 aged between 16 and 85 who were referred to the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery. Whilst those over 50 displayed symptoms of confusion and disorientation, almost all of the participants had some form of neurological complaint from inflammation of the brain and dysfunction of the cranial nerve to a brain abscess and in eight of the patients a stroke.

There is no medication for Coronavirus, hence if you have it some people will die and some will survive depending on age, your body’s strength and a number of perhaps unknown factors at this point in time. Statistics show that the death rate is around 10%. If we check people dying from Cancer this percentage will be much more, however, statistics of cancer deaths have never been disclosed in the way that Covid-19 deaths are being reported on a daily basis.

Many years ago I watched the film Contagion, filmed and released at a time when the world had seen Swine Flu and SARs but nothing on the scale of the pandemic we are faced with now: Covid-19. It was, it would seem, inevitable that sooner or later we would be faced with a pandemic on this scale and if I am honest I doubt that it will be the last. China will continue with its unsanitary wet markets and the human beings will continue to destroy our rainforests at an alarming rate leading to viruses being unleashed against with the population has no immunity.
