Me too, even if I find myself using it with my Panny G80 most of the time. I guess if the K-N will have an efficient bluetooth mode for using a phone as auxiliary screen I would not miss a flip screen.

Convalescent plasma.

https://www.nature.com/articles/d41587-020-00011-1

Convalescent serum lines up as first-choice treatment for coronavirus

Antibodies from blood donated by people who recovered from the illness and hyper-immunoglobulins are becoming treatments of choice for COVID-19, with recombinant polyclonal antibody approaches to follow.


Long paper with a part referring to another treatment involving something called H-Ig.

If convalescent plasma can be considered the first leg in a therapeutic relay race, H-Ig is the second.

Here one can find data about the percentual increase in total deaths, March 2020 over the average March 2015-19. Data come from 87% of Italian towns.

https://www.istat.it/it/files//2020/05/Rapporto_Istat_ISS.pdf

Bergamo (568%), Cremona (391%), Lodi (371%), Brescia (291%), Piacenza (264%), Parma (208%), Lecco (174%), Pavia (133%), Mantova (122%), Pesaro e Urbino (120%).

Quite surprising, Rome -9.4%. The southern part of Italy did not suffer much from the virus, the central one more, the North was heavily hit.

As far as I know, no arrests in Italy for such a treatment. The NAS, Nuclei anti sofisticazione, were alerted by someone about a pregnant woman treated with that method. That was a protocol violation.

Maybe some good news. The group directed by Dr. De Donno in Mantua tried an old approach that seems effective. Donations of blood plasma from recovered patients to ill ones. Unfortunately one donation is sufficient only for two people.

I take a break for April. The lockdown somewhat affected my mood and attitude. I would like to have some more freedom to shoot or not, change lens etc.
I shall keep buzzing around on PF, maybe I'll come back next month. Enjoy!

I have realized I would like to have a KP with K1-like ergonomics. That is a K-new. But I think it will cost around 1.000 €, maybe more.Now the question is, jump on an offer like the present ones, or wait?

Italy is buying protection masks from abroad. 830,000 were purchased from China, but they had to transit through Germany. Germany had forbidden masks export, so they were blocked in Germany. The Italian Embassy obtained the authorization to have them sent to the italian firm which ordered them, but the masks disappeared. "Nobody" knows were they are, seemingly.

Serkevan, I agree with you, number are taken with different approaches.
There is a difference between counting deaths of people WITH coronavirus, and deaths BY coronavirus. Moreover it is unlikely that the German businessman who took the coronavirus to Italy did not pass it also to someone else in Germany. We have the feeling something like a media fight is taking place, with some countries trying to hide what is happening, just to avoid economic consequences.

Something similar occurred with Chernobyl, when the radioactive fallout reached Germany and Italy, but not France. Not officially. That was weird, because seemingly it was able to bypass the Alps, but was not able to bypass the shorter mountains at the German-French border.

I like the 70 ltd a lot. I equally like the M 100 2.8. A step below the FA 35mm and FA 50mm.
