One day something will sweep across the planet and that will be that. Read an article a number of years ago that purported that it may well have been a viral pandemic that wiped out the dinosaur, as their resistance was effected by climate change owing to the Chicxulub asteroid.
For asteroid read climate change and start worrying.

People may laugh but I just acquired 4 surgical face masks. Someone I know works at a company that supplies them and a major ahem online retailer just tried to buy all of them (50000) in one go...presumably so they could rake in a massive profit. They were turned down...

Very doubtful that a surgical mask would offer little more than basic protection from a virulent pathogen. I would be more concerned over the public's laissez faire attitude to seasonal flu vaccination than a hypothetical threat from yet another asian respiratory disease.

Mind you I have been wrong before.......... rolleyes.gif rolleyes.gif rolleyes.gif

Nope you're right. And the flu will kill far more people than this ever will, as will smoking and obesity. Still, fills newspapers

Lose a couple of million and I doubt the authorities will worry unduly. The area under observation has a population of 60 million which is comparable to the whole UK, just imagine putting the whole country isolation. Least it would shut queen nicola up for a day or two. laugh.gif

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. 😁

With regards to "not taking yourself to seriously", little doubt you are pleased to know that you are in the company of others who don't either. laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

Hello, thought you had gone on a long term sabbatical. As you can see we are still taking issues aired very seriously, especially those that effect my pension.
On the matter of coronavirus, anyone would think bubonic plague was rampaging across the planet. More people have died on Italian roads in the corresponding period than from this virus but no one suggests closing the autostrade.

Plenty of tubers wearing masks today. Think it's quite a good idea. Not for Corona but overall...the amount of illness I have picked up on public transport....👍
