Coronavirus


Recommended Posts

The Dow Jones dropped over a thousand points yesterday so somebody is getting spooked by it.

Only 61 reported cases in Iran and yet they are saying 15 deaths. That is a bit alarming.

Big spike in Italy as well now.

I can see them shutting down the planes here if this keeps progressing.

I have to admit to being a bit suspicious about it all.

The WHO have said that it seems to be burning itself out in Wuhan due to the number of daily deaths decreasing

Reports that the UK Government are starting "Excess Death Contingency Planning" with local authorities but i'm not sure it will come to that.

It looks like this is similar to the flu with those that suffer other medical ailments and the elderly most at risk rather then the general population

The Spanish Flu was a fucker as it was likely to kill those that were young and fit rather than the weak

I hope you're right as I'm due in Tuscany in a few months. At the moment I'm not quite sure which way this is going to pan out 🤔

Months?   There's only so much tinned meat I can eat.   I only have one sack o' beans left too.    Montana Red Dog anyone?

Well, according to the WHO medical experts it could be months to get a grip on a mass European outbreak 😷

Acht, we'll all be worrying about mosquito borne diseases by then.   Meanwhile, I'm putting my affairs in order.   I come from a long line of dead people.

Am I tempting fate?   :unsure:

Don't forget that the typhoid outbreak in Aberdeen was caused by a tin of corned beef.

What’s the chances of these fitba’ play-offs all going ahead as scheduled seeing as sporting events are now being cancelled? 🤔

Four weeks to go. Could go either way. If they do need to get cancelled, I think the teams with the higher Nations League ranking should go through. ;)

Maybe the whole tournament might have to be cancelled. Hopefully it will have calmed down by then.

Starting to look like it is past the peak. As long there are no more major upward spikes in the next 3 weeks it should hopefully start to fizzle out. 

Past it's peak? It's now just starting to come out and spread properly.  This has a long way to go IMO.
