Cobra meeting held to discuss plan of action if it comes to the UK (assuming it hasn't already). This is another consequence of globalisation and mass immigration, people with diseases from all over the world travelling all over the world, what could possibly go wrong?

A study published this week on Chinaxiv.org, a platform used by the Chinese Academy of Sciences to release scientific research papers before they have been peer-reviewed.
http://www.chinaxiv.org/abs/2

Though it has not been peer reviewed, two other studies including one in Europe have confirmed the findings. The combined findings from the three studies indicates that because of the HIV-like mutations, its ability to bind with human cells could be as much as 1,000 times more potent that the initial SARS virus of 2003.

The fact that reinfections are emerging and that we still do not know what latent viral loads in the body can do to us in the short term, midterm or long term as we have only been exposed to the new virus in the last 9 weeks or so makes it even more frightening. One virologist from UK who says he wanted to remain anonymous as he might be accused of causing panic or misinformation warned that the new coronavirus can be described in basic terms as a “slow airborne killer that will never let its victim off, even if it loses the battle the first time”, implying that even in those so called recovered might face reinfections or that the existing viral loads in the body will eventually cause some other new chronic disease.

In a recent simulation by The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, a coronavirus killed 65 million people.
Event 201 simulates an outbreak of a novel zoonotic coronavirus transmitted from bats to pigs to people that eventually becomes efficiently transmissible from person to person, leading to a severe pandemic. The pathogen and the disease it causes are modelled largely on SARS, but it is more transmissible in the community setting by people with mild symptoms.

Nothing in the news about a Carlisle case but results are normally updated 2pm.

466 new cases and 27 new deaths in Italy, for a total of 2,502 cases and 79 deaths to date.
Among the 2,263 active cases, 1,034 (46%) are hospitalized, 229 of which (representing 10% of active cases) are in intensive care.
Among the 239 closed cases, 160 (67%) have recovered, 79 (33%) have died.

We are just 2/3 weeks behind Italy and they way things are going most of us will get it and some of us will die.

No problem pal just thinking about folk who are genuinely worried about this getting themselves into a state due to reading idle tittle tattle on here.

Enjoy your walk.

Heard his press conference today. If there’s one thing Boris knows something about it’s washing his hands. Over the years he’s washed his hands of almost everything: family, children, friends, colleagues, morals, scruples. Pontius Boris.

Cheers Munchy hahaha let's hope not, still visit daily read only as I find some on here more irritating than the corona symptoms. To be honest I'd rather catch it and get it over with, trying to avoid something with a contagious incubation period of 14 days is futile at best, unless you don't visit supermarkets, isolate yourself and wall up your front door for the next three months.

Boris quoting 1% when the global figure is running at over 3% is misleading and a disingenuous attempt to ease panic. I prefer to face facts and accept most of us are going to get it, what troubles me is what that will mean long term. Unlike flue this thing doesn't leave the body when the symptoms do, but lays dormant within. Corona virus is potentially very dangerous, those comparing it to flue are just managing their fear with denial and are less likely to heed preventative measures as a result.

I have a few questions, some frivolous.
What is the difference in symptoms between the coronavirus and the flu or common cold?
Are masks effective? Can the virus permeate through them? After all you have to breath.
Can you catch the disease without ever showing any symptoms and still be a spreader?
Can you catch the virus more than once or do you become immune?
Can you have the virus, recover from it, only for it to flare up again at a later date?
Do you always get a 'temperature' when you have it?
Are you more likely to catch it if you have high blood pressure?
Does alcohol help in preventing you catching the virus?
