Like so many other things in 2020, the pandemic is screwing up cancer research. Clinical trials—indispensable to discovering new treatments—have been shut down, postponed, and disrupted by the lack of periodic, in-person, check-ins.

Panorama BBC 1 last night: Tragedies of COVID-19. Women going through chemotherapy, radiation, drug trials – all stopped. Screening stopped. As cancer survivor, breast screening, created the treatment as above that has made that survivor, is stopped causing many deaths. The models of projections are done for COVID-19 but not for people with cancer. This is part of the Deaths of Destruction.
Private treatment under Professor John Crown, Oncology, St Vincent’s Private hospital. My mother paid throughout her life for my VHI cover. Imagine if it has been through this COVID-19 ominous Pandemic period. Professor Angus Deaton and Anne Case – Deaths of Despair and the End of Capitalism is recommended. Poverty, unemployment, illness, violence in the home, hardship are bad cards to be dealt in life. My treatment went smoothly and I wrote a book logging my experiences which may be interested to those looking at how COVID-19 had impeded their treatment. Timing is so important. Too many are not being screened now and nobody is talking about it. Thank you Panorama because as always you aim to shock people with truth and facts, into a reality they wish to avoid.
