The news is grimmer and grimmer every day... Really seeing a impact around the place now especially if you follow stocks and money.

Anybody been affected?

Don't complain - suggest what's better
I’m keeping calm and carrying on as normal. Less than 100,000 people world wide effected at present out of 9 billion plus And death rate similar to normal flue. Certainly a lot less than things like TB which is making a come back from India where it is still endemic.
I think the press have a lot to answer for trying to create panic to make more news.
Saying that I need two new tyres on my pickup and no-one has any stock as although the actual tyres are not made in China the steel reinforcing is and is in short supply, so I had to order them.

as Gra says, with the current world population at 7.8 billion those 100,000 represent 0.00001282051 % of the world and those are phenomenally long odds.As usual the media is having a field day creating a frenzy about something that has a far lower mortality rate than many other transmittable illnesses. Once more, they're going to be responsible, on the whole, for crashing economies yet again :mad: :mad: ...... fkrs need muzzling

I'm on a flight tonight leaving from an airport where several infected people passed through over the weekend.
I'll self-quarantine at the other end and see if there are any reports of infection on my flight.

Yeah, that's an interesting one.
It's not clear if she 'caught it twice' or if it has an unusual biphase behaviour like anthrax (get sick, get better (still have it) (or die),get sick again. get better (or die)).

I was supposed to be going to Germany this week but decided against it. Looks like world wide recessions are inbound thats the more worrying thing (news driven) unless they can catch some sort of hold now.

yes the media are going to drive us all into the tish again ..... they were 90+% responsible for the last major collapse IMHDO .. things were ticking over quietly - not great, but certainly not as bad as they made it out to be ...... then it all fell off a cliff :mad::mad: ....... all for the sake of sensationalism and BS journalism

Couldn't agree more, the crap they twaddle out is unreal. Had to do with several major incidents over last few years as a volunteer and when you see the truth and the media version it's unreal the difference.
That's my theory on why they hate trump so much...he bypasses them straight to Twitter. They have no "control" over him. My twopennyworth anyhow😉

It's funny seeing the reaction on different forums
A couple I am part of have already got 50 pages of doom and gloom
With constant post of media statistics

I'm much of the opinion that we don't and will never know the actual truth as the media has got hold of it

We will see in coming weeks what happens and whether we go into lock down like Italy or it blows over

Im not old enough to remember all the problems but I can definitely remember the end of civilization being iminant at least a couple of times

Pam has a friend who used to work with her, who now lives in Italy ... comes back to the UK to give birth :rolleyes: for dual nationality for the kids - hubby Italian.
latest one is five days old and they can't go back. Looking for somewhere to rent. Says the situation is very serious ... all hospitals full and 'decisions' have to be made about who does/doesn't get treated :unsure::oops: .... I'd guess their media has been shut down a lot more than our wa***ers have been :mad: they have far too much freedom to say WTF they like, on a lot of things, without actually reporting it as it is, instead of the sensationalistic crap that they so love to dole out hourly :mad::mad::mad::mad:🤬🤬🤬

Reading the news you would think that they have all been locked in side there houses with the death sentence being issued to anyone disobeying. I just googled to see what is actually happening and whilst it's very difficult to find out it seems non essential travel to and from the north is to be penalized and social gatherings banned
As far as I can tell people can still go to work and go to the shops
It's ridiculous how much everything is twisted and social media even forums you would expect to be quite sensible are just feeding the problem with Chinese whispers and armchair experts

can go out for food/med.s/etc. shopping, but otherwise ... stay home ... finding shops open, or with goods is not so easy apparently ... getting a flight to Italy is a non starter ... hence can't go back (before the 3rd April apparently) ... plus think she'd rather be here ATM :rolleyes:

Where's @barracane for some input rather than media nonsense

what the media and the specialist experts are not telling us and its time they did is the demographics of who this disease is effecting mostly, The reason the rate is so high in Italy, is it sheer coincidence that Italy also has the highest Chineese population in Europe like in many places you have Chineese quarters in San Fransisco you have China Town etc etc, If this virus has been active for more than a few months which it has then it is no wonder certain areas are suffering more than others, i have not heard much about Vancouver in Canada which also has a high concentration of chineese people living there, it effects people in main that have underlying health conditions too so most healthy people will have the Flu ( i had it last year and it took me out for two weeks solid to the point i could not even get myself out of bed, i had a raging temperature all of my limb joints ached and i had zero energy i basically could not move.) nowadays most people sneeze and cough and then say they have the flu which is total Bo11ocks, ? you really know it when you have had the Flu and a specialist said you usually may get it once in a lifetime, i had it once when i were a lad about 14 years old and again last year. I know that this is a new strain but i think it is being blown out of proportion a bit which does not help business ( particularly if you have a chineeses takeaway) :) Also there was a book written about 40 years ago by a chap called Dan Kroenitz about a flu virus the Chineese develop and the doctor that discovered it was murdered, call me a cynic but its a bit coincidental is'nt it!
