    Today sneezing like mad, coughing fits, eyes watering, headache, and an acid stomach...Perhaps coronavirus, but I'm putting it down to the people in the flat under me who have been on a shisha binge for the past two days.

    That is a stinking habit, that shisha thing.

    ^ What the hell is that truck doing ? Spraying disinfectant ??


    Unfortunately the death rate is not that high, really. The culling of humanity will have to take place by other means.

    You have to wonder what other things will die, from the microbiological level up with such wide spread use of chemicals.

    looks like the UK will get a fair share

    Some people who have travelled through China have criticised airline checks designed to prevent the spread of the virus. Dave* was on holiday in Bangkok with his partner and travelled back to the UK via Beijing with Air China, wearing face masks and swimming goggles.

    Airline staff took the temperatures of passengers at Bangkok, where four people “blatantly tested far above the threshold” but were allowed to board after short arguments with flight attendants, said the 39-year-old.

    “My partner and I both thought the flight was tense, and the flight crew were visibly nervous on both sides. Some people didn’t seem too fussed about it, and I got the impression that a lot of people were half-hearted, like wearing masks that weren’t properly over their face.”

    At Heathrow, there were no checks or information. “It was just like flying to Heathrow on any other day,” he said. “I was expecting at least some information on contacting Public Health England, but there weren’t even any posters. Us and a litany of sick coughing people from an Air China flight waltzed right out the airport.

    “There was hand sanitiser everywhere but no one seemed to use it,” he added. “I felt it was all a bit half-arsed.”

    For the full Briton-on-holiday look, he should have added flippers and a knotted hanky.

    'Full recovery' simply means body readings are normal, not that the patient has necessarily recovered from the virus.

    Disease X would be smart, make the victim noticeably ill, kill off a few but allow most to recover onto a plateau for x days, then fcuk the living daylights outa them after they've been cleared and passed it on to umpteen others.

    This is an unforgiveable mistake for not calling it a pandemic yet.

    The World Health Organization has not officially declared a pandemic yet but makes it sound like it’s pretty much inevitable. “The window of opportunity is still there, but the window of opportunity is narrowing,” WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Friday. “We need to act quickly before it closes completely.”
    I guess we need a few famous politicians to become infected before they call it a pandemic.

    It's an important first step, and many Aussie posters on this forum have patriotically stood up to be counted and heroically volunteered to be guinea pigs. Your dedication is noted, especially Lulu who tried volunteer several times. The rest of the world stands by watching these brave individuals to see if their unusual inoculation protocol will in fact prove useful.

    Early reports indicate the procedure is "a bit of a pain in the arse!".

    Fear, isolation cloaks town at centre of Italy's coronavirus outbreak

    CODOGNO, Italy: The streets are silent, shops are shuttered and the few people who venture from their homes shun company in the small Italian town of Codogno under the shadow of a new coronavirus outbreak.

    "It's a ghost town, it's horrible for us," a young woman named Paola told AFP as she walked down a deserted street near the station on Saturday night.

    "People are locked in their houses, there's nobody in the streets," she added.

    The station, like most parts of the town of 15,000 people, was closed. No one was selling tickets, no passengers awaited trains.

    Italy became the first European country to report the death of one of its own nationals from the virus on Friday, followed by a second death on Saturday, amid a sudden rise in confirmed cases of contamination now totalling 79.

    Virus hits shipping, spreading global economic strain

    Sea freight transport, the lifeblood of trade and a bellwether of the global economy, has been blown off course by the new coronavirus, sparking general alarm.


    As analysts pore over charts to gauge just how badly Chinese mega-factories have been hit, figures provided by cargo ship traffic paint a gloomy picture.

    The Baltic Dry Index (BDI) reflects the daily price of moving goods such as coal, rice and wheat along routes deemed representative of the global market.


    Some call it the canary in the coal mine for the economic world.


    The BDI has now reached lows last seen in early 2016, when the shipping sector was suffering a supply and demand imbalance in the wake of the 2008-09 global economic crisis.

    seems like there is still some space for the BDI to fall further, we are just starting here

    They are definitely doing what the chinkies are doing, playing it down.

    They have apparently told neighbouring governments a different story and there have reportedly been riots in numerous cities because of the utterly crap response coming from the government, who presumably are claiming that it is "Allah's will".

    Meanwhile Turkey, Afghanistan and Pakistan have closed their borders to Iran.
