Corona Virus

Post by Portly Stilton Shot » Mon Mar 02, 2020 11:17 am

It's been muted on BBC News that mass gatherings, including sporting events, may be cancelled to avoid the spread of corona virus. This seems already to have started with Ireland cancelling their 6-Nations game against Italy. Therefore how long before our beloved football becomes under threat?

But just a minute? When does such a move begin to contravene peoples' rights and freedom of choice? What do you call mass gatherings? Close shops and put the nail in the coffin of a dying high street? I can't believe the spread of such a virus will be stopped, merely slowed. If this virus is akin to influenza in its severity then surely better to have it, endure it, survive it and move on that to disrupt our whole way of life?

It's called they need to man up and let life go on as normal. It's just being over dramatised from the media again, I guess they need something new to concentrate on and scare people and send them into panic since they got no Brexit to go on about anymore.
My thing is people just need to take more care if going to a football match etc.. just making sure you have your hands clean and if your not well then just dont go until your better.

They don't need to ruin it for everyone just because a handful of people have got the illness.

Tune changing on the way ;)

It's the economy/supply chains/lack of products and parts from all and sundry.

But hey President Twumpy says it's all under control, and he's always right. Oh wait...

Survive it maybe..but you can catch it again
Catching it once, and surviving doesn’t give you immunity

I’m as fed up of hearing about this as much as I am hearing/reading stuff re a poxy train on the Watercress Line!

"If this virus is akin to influenza in its severity..."

Don't pay any attention to what President Twumpy [and similar types] has said about it, with one exception, though i doubt Twumpy has heard of it: the spanish flu of 1918.

In my medical opinion, the Independent World Health Authority have the Corona as the highest level risk to life as possible.

Now much as I feel reassured there are a few soldiers on here that scoff such warnings, I also watch The Walking Dead ........... a documentary regarding a virus that turns some folk into crazed looking brain dead people that stumble around aimlessly, bit like Woeking fans.

So, at the moment I'm not thinking I'm doomed and gonna end up shuffling around The Peacock Centre BUT, the moment I get even a sniff of Man Flu I'm quarantining meself away from work for two weeks and hoping Cheltenham Festival not affected.

Talking of soldiers ... more than 300 Canadian soldiers never made it to WWI France, or back to Canada alive. They got as far as Bramshott, east Hampshire. Then they caught the Spanish flu, which was not an ordinary flu, as you may know. It's on a par with coronovirus ...

No it's not. The majority of people who catch coronovirus have mild symptoms and make a complete recovery. The deaths are of people with existing medical conditions, the old and very young. Exactly the same as flu..
