    Supprised this hasn't been brought up yet

    I had a text from NHS recently about ways to detect the virus and what to do if you have symptoms

    A house in queensbury had the men in white coats round the other day and the occupants taken to hospital

    I dont think it turned out to be corona but it proves there taking this seriously

    Was it 242 died in one day the other day ... and reports it could be 25x worse than is being reported

    Some serious shit going down here

    Just reading that the Chinese government are saying the rest of the world are over playing the situation, that maybe so but as a Communist's they only allow news out of the country that suites China.

    With 1500 dead and 67k plus infected and multiplying .. I dont think that's something to be glossing over

    And that's what they are admitting to

    If you compare it to normal flu, currently it is a storm in a teacup

    Seasonal flu kills 291,000 to 646,000 people worldwide each year, according to a new estimate that's higher than the previous one of 250,000 to 500,000 deaths a year. The new figures from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other groups were published Dec. 13 in The Lancet medical journal.

    I get your point but 242 people dying in one day in the same city from the same virus

    Hopefully an antidote soon.

    Everyone has to die of something.
    Although in years to come a super virus/bug will probably be more harmful than any wars etc

    It's what is needed though unfortunately, the way the human race lives is unsustainable.

    I wouldn't be surprised to learn of a few governments brewing up a few super bugs for this very reason.

    They will mostly be vulnerable people and that figure makes up 0.000022% of the population of that city, which gives perspective!

    This is all a bit tin foil hat Brigade so humour me but there are rumours that patient zero of Corona Virus is in fact a graduate from China’s top biosafety laboratory and WHO will not release the name.

    maybe we are further down the line than people think and this is some sort of stress test to see how countries cope?

    As I said bit of a mad conspiracy theory there

    Something doesn't stack up to me. Statistically it looks less deadly than regular flu, but there appears to be a very, very strong response being mobilised. Either its worse than is being reported, or theres some sort of concern about how deadly it could become if it mutated.

    That's how mankind will become truly done for. A global virus of some kind. That, or twitter.

    What worries me is they say it’s less harmful than flue and yet there is all this fuss. What are they not telling us

    An employee at my firm, her husband has just returned from Milan. He has no symptoms, but his employer has imposed a 14 day quarantine on him, so we we've had to do the same.

    Its going to cause carnage.
