    All foreigners will be banned from entering the country under the emergency decree being invoked to combat at the coronavirus pandemic.
    The emergency decree comes into effect at midnight on Wednesday, and remains in force through April 30.
    The decree bans all foreigners from entry at all entry points - the exceptions being shippers, diplomats, drivers, pilots and others permitted by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha.

    It seems the esteemed general is announcing this in bite size morsels.

    Gen Prayut said all shops selling food and essential consumer goods can remain open. He warned that anybody taking advantage of the situation for their own benefit will face stern action - an apparent reference to hoarders.

    Not seeing any gouging up here in the sticks but hearing plenty going on in Bangkok.
    We are seeing only the tip of this iceberg. Food shortages and price gouging will become become part of the new reality.

    Three American sailors on board USS Theodore Roosevelt have been evacuated after testing positive for COVID-19.

    The aircraft carrier has 5,000 personnel on board and was on deployment in the Pacific Ocean.

    US Acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly said it was the first confirmed cases of coronavirus on a deployed ship.

    "We've identified all the folks they've had contact with, and we're quarantining them as well," said Mr Modly during a Pentagon news conference.


    "This is an example of how we are able to keep our ships deployed at seas and underway, even with active COVID-19 cases."


    Chief of naval operations, Admiral Michael Gilday, said the infected sailors were flown to a military hospital in the Pacific region.


    Meanwhile, a US hospital ship is due to dock in Los Angeles to help tackle the coronavirus outbreak there.

    USNS Mercy is expected to arrive within the next couple of days and will deploy more than a thousand military personnel and civilians.

    USNS Comfort is also preparing to provide medical care to New York City.

    At 1801 hours this evening, the Phuket Governor issued a decree asking all Thai and foreigners to stay in their accommodation from 1700 hours until midnight today. The level of incompetence in general of Thai authorities is world renowned, but their approach to emergency command and control is truly staggering in its idiocy.

    Takeda Initiates Development of a Plasma-Derived Therapy for COVID-19



    March 4, 2020
    - Anti-SARS-CoV-2 polyclonal hyperimmune globulin (H-IG) being developed to treat infected, high-risk individuals with COVID-19
    - Exploring the potential to repurpose marketed products and molecules to potentially treat COVID-19

    Cambridge, Mass. and Osaka, Japan, March 4, 2020 – Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (TSE:4502/NYSE:TAK) (“Takeda”) today will share with members of the United States Congress that it is initiating the development of an anti-SARS-CoV-2 polyclonal hyperimmune globulin (H-IG) to treat high-risk individuals with COVID-19, while also studying whether Takeda’s currently marketed and pipeline products may be effective treatments for infected patients. SARS-CoV-2 is the virus that causes COVID-19.

    Hyperimmune globulins are plasma derived-therapies that have previously been shown to be effective in the treatment of severe acute viral respiratory infections and may be a treatment option for COVID-19. As a leader in plasma-derived therapies with more than 75 years of experience in the development of plasma-derived products, Takeda has the expertise to research, develop, and manufacture a potential anti-SARS-CoV-2 polyclonal H-IG, which Takeda is referring to as TAK-888.

    “As a company dedicated to the health and well-being of people around the world, we will do all that we can to address the novel coronavirus threat,” said Dr. Rajeev Venkayya, President of Takeda’s Vaccine Business Unit and co-lead of the company’s COVID-19 response team. “We have identified relevant assets and capabilities across the company and are hopeful that we can expand the treatment options for patients with COVID-19 and the providers caring for them.”

    Takeda is currently in discussions with multiple national health and regulatory agencies and health care partners in the US, Asia, and Europe to expeditiously move the research into TAK-888 forward. This requires access to source plasma from people who have successfully recovered from COVID-19 or who have been vaccinated, once a vaccine is developed. These convalescent donors have developed antibodies to the virus that could potentially mitigate severity of illness in COVID-19 patients and possibly prevent it.

    H-IG works by concentrating the pathogen-specific antibodies from plasma collected from recovered patients or vaccinated donors in the future. By transferring the antibodies to a new patient, it may help that person’s immune system respond to the infection and increase their chance of recovery. Because the plasma needed for TAK-888 is unlikely to come from current plasma donors, Takeda will initially produce the therapy in a segregated area within its manufacturing facility in Georgia, and development and production of it should not negatively impact Takeda’s ability to produce its other plasma-derived therapies.

    “Plasma-derived therapies are critical, life-saving medicines that thousands of people with rare and complex diseases rely on every day around the world,” said Dr. Chris Morabito, Takeda’s Head of Research and Development, Plasma-Derived Therapies Business Unit. “Our heritage, combined with our scale, expertise and capabilities, uniquely position Takeda to realize the potential of plasma-derived therapies, such as TAK-888.”

    In addition, Takeda is exploring whether select marketed therapies and molecules in its drug library could be viable candidates for the effective treatment of COVID-19. These efforts are at an early stage but being given a high priority within the company.

    An internal working group of in-house experts in public health, vaccines, plasma-derived therapies, and R&D will continue to seek opportunities to leverage our expertise and extensive network of global partners to address COVID-19. COVID-19 is the disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), which can cause pneumonia and has resulted in more than 3,000 deaths globally since its recent discovery. To date, there are no approved vaccines or therapies to prevent or treat COVID-19.

    About Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited
    Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (TSE:4502/NYSE:TAK) is a global, values-based, R&D-driven biopharmaceutical leader headquartered in Japan, committed to bringing Better Health and a Brighter Future to patients by translating science into highly-innovative medicines. Takeda focuses its R&D efforts on four therapeutic areas: Oncology, Rare Diseases, Neuroscience, and Gastroenterology (GI). We also make targeted R&D investments in Plasma-Derived Therapies and Vaccines. We are focusing on developing highly innovative medicines that contribute to making a difference in people's lives by advancing the frontier of new treatment options and leveraging our enhanced collaborative R&D engine and capabilities to create a robust, modality-diverse pipeline. Our employees are committed to improving quality of life for patients and to working with our partners in health care in approximately 80 countries.

    About Plasma-Derived Therapies
    Plasma-derived therapies are essential for treating patients with a variety of rare, life-threatening, complex and genetic diseases for which there are few or no other treatment options. Plasma is the clear, straw-colored liquid portion of blood that remains after red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets are removed. Plasma has multiple components with different clinical uses. ​Plasma products have existed for ~ 80 years, and industry-wide research is underway to assess the larger potential therapeutic value of plasma in new diseases.

    CORONAVIRUS: Thousands volunteer to help NHS with vulnerable

    Some 250,000 people have signed up in a single day to volunteer with the NHS after a recruitment drive to help the vulnerable amid the coronavirus crisis.


    The helpers are needed for delivering food and medicines, driving patients to appointments and phoning the isolated.


    The scheme is one of a number aimed at relieving pressure on the NHS.


    About 11,000 former medics have also agreed to return to the health service and more than 24,000 final year student nurses and medics will join them.


    Stephen Powis, NHS England medical director, said there had been "outbreaks of altruism" and he was "bowled over" by the medics returning to the front line and the response from volunteers.

    Coronavirus (COVID-19) and donating
    We are always very grateful to you for being a blood donor and for helping to save lives. The Government has said we are in the biggest public health crisis in a generation. We now need you more than ever. Please keep donating if you can.
    Your donation of blood is essential to the NHS. Seriously ill patients still need your life saving support. It is very important that we collect enough blood for hospitals.
    Please keep donating as normal if you can. Travel to donate blood is essential travel under the category of medical need and helping vulnerable people. Our donor centres and mobile sessions are open around the country. Blood donation is projected to drop because of coronavirus and we really need your donation if you are fit and healthy.
    You will find extra safety measures are in place. Our trained staff will check everyone before they come into a session. Our teams are trained in thorough universal hygiene precautions to prevent the spread of all infections and they are carrying out extra cleaning. Safety is our number one priority.
    Please help make donation safer by coming to donate alone. We understand that some people will have childcare responsibilities, but at this time we ask that children only accompany parents when there is no other option.
    The situation is constantly changing. Please keep up to date with our latest advice on our app and website Home - NHS Blood Donation. Please make and keep an appointment. If you do have to cancel your appointment for any reason, then it is important that you let us know so we can offer your slot as soon as possible to another donor.
    Please keep donating blood and platelets over the coming weeks and months. Hospital patients are still relying on your lifesaving donations. We need you now more than ever.
    Dr Gail Miflin
    Chief Medical Officer and Director of Clinical Services

    You have probably received a dozen or more emails about the developing coronavirus situation. This is a crisis on a global scale, and it is hitting many of those of us who live, love and work in music extremely hard.

    For many artists, DJs, nightclubs and festivals, live events are often the majority of their income, if not the entirety. As we enter a new reality where events are cancelled for a significant period of time, the creative community and many of the institutions we love face an extremely challenging financial future.

    We have spent the last week consulting with our partners, friends and creative community around the world. It is clear that there are no silver bullets, but now more than ever we need to support creators.

    We launched Mixcloud SELECT [ Introducing Mixcloud Select | Mixcloud ] last year as a way for people to support creators they love. The goal is simple: to help creators find new sustainable economic models, and to help fans to get closer to creators.

    Today we are immediately waiving our SELECT revenue share for the next 3 calendar months, giving SELECT channel creators 100% of the income after the underlying artists and songwriters played in their shows have been paid.

    See if your favorite creators are on SELECT here [ Mixcloud ].

    If you are a creator, find out more about the tools and resources available to you on our blog here [ The global community for audio culture. ].

    Thank you for being part of the Mixcloud community.

    Stay safe,
