I haven't read the whole thread but the point of having a fire inside the middle of the tandor floor is to send radiant heat in all directions to the surface of the tandor so that you can cook naan or whatever on the walls of the tandor.  If you feed heat in from a side then the heat will not be directed symmetrically to the walls making cooking interesting!

You could look at a riserless system such as the double shoe box 2 which then dumps to a stratification chamber.

From The Lancet

At least seven relatively large-scale case studies have reported the clinical features of patients with COVID-19.1,  5,  6,  7,  8,  9,  10 In this Comment, we assess how the liver is affected using the available case studies and data from The Fifth Medical Center of People's Liberation Something or other General Hospital, Beijing, China. These data indicate that 2–11% of patients with COVID-19 had liver comorbidities and 14–53% cases reported abnormal levels of alanine aminotransferase and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) during disease progression (table). Patients with severe COVID-19 seem to have higher rates of liver dysfunction.

Liver damage in patients with coronavirus infections might be directly caused by the viral infection of liver cells. Approximately 2–10% of patients with COVID-19 present with diarrhoea, and SARS-CoV-2 RNA has been detected in stool and blood samples.11 This evidence implicates the possibility of viral exposure in the liver. Both SARS-CoV-2 and SARS-CoV bind to the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptor to enter the target cell,7 where the virus replicates and subsequently infects other cells in the upper respiratory tract and lung tissue; patients then begin to have clinical symptoms and manifestations. Pathological studies in patients with SARS confirmed the presence of the virus in liver tissue, although the viral titre was relatively low because viral inclusions were not observed.3 where .. is Peter India India Sierra - the forum software has a bug and is rejecting the link as it thinks I'm using an abbreviation

Until someone publishes a controlled series of their outcomes then this is just hearsay.  
There's a group in Australia saying this combination effectively treated their patients but until they publish somewhere ...

Jérôme Salomon, a top official at the French health ministry, said the situation was “deteriorating very quickly.” He told France Inter radio on Monday that many people did not seem to be taking calls for social distancing seriously, and he tried to dispel the notion that the virus seriously threatens only the elderly. There are 300 to 400 people in intensive care in France, he said, and roughly half of them are under age 65.

Urgent advisory from the French government. Avoid the use of Ibuprofen in the management of this disease.

I presume they'll release their evidence shortly.
