    Me neither, I took what Campbell said at face value, he mentioned the SA government or hospitals when talking about his numbers.

    I was just quite interested in how they defined "well controlled diabetes" ...

    100% and fair play . I'm sure you appreciate that there's enough fear and uncertainty. That being said I'm also 100% sure you you were just sharing with the best intentions

    @Jamie H Just by the way and this is just my opinion but if you have a problem with something someone has posted there is a report post button you could use it and then let a mod decide on the relevance or suitability of a post it is after all their function to police the forum I for one had no adverse reaction to the post in question but found it informative after all it is a global pandemic and the relevance of what is happening around the world is not necessarily of no consequence to us and our situation I am not a child and do not wish to be kept in ignorance because it may scare me.

    @Max68 thank you for your posting of the video.

    I have just watched the video and found it very interesting learning about the risks of COVID-19 in different parts of the world. In 2018, I found out that I have a niece in Africa.
    I would of liked more info regarding diabetes ie the different types or age etc as it wasn't specified.

    I'm not a child either.. So won't be reporting anyone for having a different opinion to my own. This is a forum.. Its not a platform to massage people's ego or agree with everything they post. It's not personal I just didn't think the video was helpful. You think it was useful.. That's also fine. I didn't ask the individual to remove it

    Please let's all get on, after all we are all in the same boat and on the same side! :) Last thing I would want to do is scare anyone as I'm not particularly comfortable with the situation myself! I find Dr John Campbell a great voice of reason and honesty and extremely informative within all the confusion and have done since back in February hence posting a video of "interest" from I think a reliable source. One thing I like about him is that he will fully admit he has been wrong or apologises if any information he has posted is incorrect, hence why I watch him.

    If anyone is interested in the studies he discusses the I would highly recommend that they subscribe to his channel on You Tube and that is probably the best way I can keep everyone happy!! ;);)

    Well said but think it's healthy to disagree too. If I didn't do so respectfully then of course I aplogise. But don't think there's any need to be reporting people just because you don't agree with something they post . It's all about healthy debate! And you're right we're all on the same side

    Ancel Keyes must have got his diet right, he lived c.100 years.

    I am not sure we always get the full picture!
    We certainly are not atm with the briefings.

    With China starting on a second wave and it looks like the States are as well we need to be super careful.

    Btw, I quite enjoy John Cambell's approach and videos.
    He is a genuine guy, I met him some years ago and his dedication and empathy are sterling qualities.

    Haven’t seen anything about this. The worldometer figs show an average of less than 10 new cases a day in China over the last 7 days.
    https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/china/
    Are there contradictory figures elsewhere?
