    I don't think my radio receives that low a frequency.

    Do we still have an "S" band frequency that hasn't been auctioned off for 5G?

    IT IS ONE of TWO WHO EXERCISES: The Previous would be H1N1 2009?
    "The United Nations (including WHO) conducts at least two system-wide
    training and simulation exercises, including one for covering the deliberate
    release of a lethal respiratory pathogen."
    — pp 10. ' A WORLD AT RISK ' · WHO, GPMB, World-Bank. Sept, 2019.

    Terms of the Exercises ... And Ransom-note.

    Being that you are, in the UK, now banned from groups of more than two.
    That couples are now banned from staying in each-other's houses. Exercise!
    And, to top the cherry on your little birthday cake, it's all a World-Bank exercise.
    So once again, let us reiterate. You need to participate in one form of exercise, per day.

    So, when do you start to have a problem; jobsworths? We live all this until September?

    Don't get me wrong, I do intend to wear now my Triosyn T-5000V Milspec masks
    but I think it a prudent precaution to also build up some natural annual immunity

    The common cold is also one variety of a large number of CORONAVIRUSES.

    https://web.stanford.edu/group/virus/corona/colds.html
    "The common cold is a virally related syndrome and has been associated with over 100 different viruses, including Human Coronavirus and Rhinovirus. Common symptoms include throat discomfort , followed by sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion, coughing and decreased energy level. Fever is uncommon with colds, except in young children."

    https://web.stanford.edu/group/virus/corona/colds.html
    "Strong links have been drawn between stress and immune system functioning.
    The more stressed you are, the weaker your immune system will be and the more likely you are to develop symptoms."

    "I can testify to this. As during the H1N1 WHO Level-6 pandemic of 2008/9 I developed symptoms of a cold and or flu, during really stressed online researching.
    I went to bed & within one afternoon, these had all completely passed.
