Hi People

For those that are interested, a link to the current state of understanding of the spike protein to the molecular level.

Interesting to read but difficult to understand! Does it mean that those of us who are taking an ACE inhibitor have a reduced chance of contracting Covid19? Or have I totally misunderstood?

Hi Nathan

Please don't mistake me for an expert but the paper I found on the subject suggests a slightly lower risk.


Don't change any of your medical regimes unless directed by your GP.

Martin, thank you for the second paper. A very good and interesting read which gave me hope that the remaining brain cells still work. That "significant reduction in risk" should be more widely disseminated to patients, it might help to reduce the worry among older/at risk members of the population.

Being serious, though, as I take Lisinopril for blood pressure and am overweight and 71, any slight help is welcome

I've been taking vitamin D for a while now, the NHS has long been recommending using it in the darker parts of the year as there is less sunlight in the UK than needed for good natural vitamin D production. Reports are it may help keep the immune system running well and it will not hurt. Now the government are planning to give it out for the same reason (it's also cheap which is a bonus).
