Re: Coronavirus

Probably not as bad as it sounds then for the UK given the number of deaths overall during the year. Ater all, death does not usually come alone and those sort of illnesses just finish folk off. The last nail in the coffin you might say.

Gotta die of something, unfortunately. 😞

I feel this current virus is Project Fear 3 rather than Bubonic plague 2.0.


If we assume China is being truthfull...  there are stories leaking out about

a lot more cases and deaths than China is officially admitting.  UK authorities

seem to be playing it safe with 14 days quarantine for returning people..

Worldwide. "an estimated 50 million victims". Over 675,000 Americans and 228,000 UK people died. Makes the current outbreak seem trivial in comparision. Unfortunately the 1918 outbreak occured at the end of the war with it being supposedly spread by returning troops.

Ever helpful. :grin: Sure, I’d love to help you out. Now which way did you come in?

Breaking News:

The coronavirus is no more. 

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) it will now be known officially as 2019-nCoV... but you will have to take off that face mask in order to say it!

What's wrong with just calling in flu? 😛

Oh no, I was going to fly from there t'morrow!

Nightmare. 😂

Seriously though, who in their right mind would be heading to China anyway?

Re: Coronavirus

Are you making me an offer? 😃

Watching one elderly couple being interviewed and they where asked what they hoped the next ten years would bring to which the lady answered, "I'm hoping to collect on his life insurance" 

You should have seen the look her husband gave her!

Re: Coronavirus

10 people on the cruise ship Diamond Princess currently off the coast of Japan have tested positive for the virus.

Guess there will be a number of UK citizens on that ship as it frequently has adverts in the local press.

Many on board are likely to be elderly (just my assumption) so a lot of worried folk and relatives

Re: Coronavirus

Real = Valid = Fact = Truth

From the Daily Mail, I very much doubt it.

@Mook 

From that link, even the Mail seemed to question it's own story!

Unbelievable.
