    • The 'test, test, test' call from WHO specifically applies to just ''suspected cases'' and those who recently had contact with confirmed cases. WHO isn't calling for speculative testing.   I assume Prof Tobyjug is referring to a PCR test but as testing the entire nation for anything is a fantasy it doesn't matter much.

    • I don’t see some users posts, but since they’ve been quoted .........   I agree (in parts) with 2 contributors postings.   WHO says “test, test, test”, so more tests ARE key. That is part agreeing with one contributor.   I also agree with cjcregg. One has to understand the limitations of a test : (sensitivity, specificity and its positive and negative predictive values - which involves sensitivity / specificity AND prevalence!).   One also has to understand which test, to apply those limitations. a) RNA NAAT? (Commonly called PCR, though PCR is a tradename, so ‘PCR’ is to ‘NAAT’ like ‘Hoover’ is to ‘vacuum cleaner’) b) Antigen testing? c) Antibody testing? (If so, IgM? IgG? Both??)   Knowing which test(s), their limitations, and thus what the result actually MEANS is more important than a blanket statement of “test everyone!”, (and repeatedly ??! ) .... especially as it allows prioritisation of who gets what test to maximise benefit, until “testing for all” is more than a pipe-dream .....   Would you repeat a positive IgG test? If so, in what circumstances??
    • Just out of interest, how long did it take you to formulate this conclusion? I'm not looking for a particularly accurate answer, just round it up to the nearest nano second.    How is this going to work then?   Where are the medical personnel and laboratory staff required to undertake this massive project going to come from? Now this is just a stab in the dark but I'd imagine they'd be quite busy at the moment.   Even South Korea, who are recognised as having one of the most aggressive testing policies have only managed to test 1% of their population. You clearly have no conception as to the scale of what you're proposing.   Even if it was possible to plan, organise and execute it would take years to achieve, by which time all the data would have been redundant and completely meaningless. I was tested last week and it took 2 days for the result, which by the time I received it was already out of date as I was then and now just as likely to be infected as I was when I took the test.   Think about it.    
    • I'm sure that the entire nation is reassured and lost in gratitude to you for this heart-warming confirmation.   Do keep us updated.

PC world macbookpro

On 26th jan I purchased a MacBook Pro from pcworld.  Set it up but never used as took hours and hours. 27th I try to install the security software which send you to a phishing site and as a precaution I took it to the tech desk to get it set back to factory setting as I had not used it.  29th jan I am told it’s done, I try to reinstall it and error messages keep coming up.  I call tech desk (country wide one) and he aid take it back as it is new and get it replaced.  I take it back and the tech man in the shop said he can fix it while I am there.  After an hour he says he can’t atm and asks the manager if I can have it replaced. The manager said no it’s a software problem.  The machine was fine when I took it in on the 27th, it was a precaution just to put it back to factory settings.  The tech man then says if he cannot fix it by 31sr it will need to go to Apple.  This was £1400, I have not used it except for start up setting up,  is this legally right? It was fine when I took it in, not even been used and I have no laptop? They also sold me security software they know has issues with [problematic] as the tech man on the phone told me they have had 100’s of call regarding this.

You should not need to install any other security system,

Take it back to PC World and ask for a replacement they generally oblige

I have and it’s in for repair again and they said if they can’t fix it it will have to go to Apple.  It went in in fine health it was a precaution I wanted it reset which is where the problems have arisen and the mackintosh hd has locked and now there seems to be other issues even though he managed to unlock this. The manager said no it’s a software problem.  I have spoken to head office and they say I am entitled to a new one under the consumer act but the store says no.  Just to add I am a polite customer, never rude etc so it’s not like I have rubbed them up the wrong way.

 If you Purchased 26th Jan 2020 you simply return it to PC World and ask for an exchange as it is not fit for purpose.If you have met a really awkward Manager, don't bother with him email the CEO of PC World "Mark Jones" or telephone him

Under the Consumer Rights Act you are entitled to reject the item if a defect appears in the first 30 days.  This right needs to be asserted in writing.  It is called the "short term right to reject".

 

Write to them now and say that you are asserting your right and you are rejecting the computer and you want a refund.  Send this message by email and letter and send a copy to the CEO as advised above.

 

Don't expect it be easy.  PCWorld Currys quibble about everything - but at least assert your right - and then we will advise you as to your next step
