More hyperbole, "The death toll from the new virus, which is officially called 2019-nCov, now stands at 259. "

Still, don't let facts get in your way. 😁

The Yanks are under no illusion regarding China's official figures and with the diplomatically challenged Donald in charge I can see a lot of flack flying before too long. China could lose 2 million and no one, except those concerned, would bat an eyelid so it seems this has a fair bit of mileage left.

I suspect the China death toll is the number of people that have died
as a direct result of it. Anyone with an underlying condition wont have been included... so they have a get out clause...

Bet a few leaders wished they had thought of that one. How many would have succumbed to seasonal flu anyway? Doesn't detract from the fact that these pandemics are always round the corner and when they do surface we are ill prepared. Can do nothing to prevent the virus emerging but we should have had a policy on hand to combat it.

On the plus side for the NHS there will be a lot less very ill people at the end of this... an inconvenient truth..

Just watched "Have I Got News For You". If you missed it well worth doing the catch up thing. When we lose our sense of humour it will be the end.

I found it a bit weird, to be honest. It was still pretty funny though.

While according to some, 5G is to blame for the virus, yes really. I really despair.
