Yet another reason that I don't put an ungloved hand on a rail (escalators etc.)
You don't know who coughed or sneezed into their hand, and then held onto the rail, thus depositing germs and goo etc.
Goo???!!!  Jesus, I will never go to M&S again

sorry to say but all travel to and from abroad needs to be stopped. NOW.unfortuanately those currently abroad cant come back at this moment in time

They have looked at this before and by their calculations it would only delay any virus coming into the country but it would come on the other hand the distribution this would cause would be economically damaging and have huge impact on people’s lives fir a benefit of a few months.
It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you got to have is faith and discipline when you're not a winner.

"The Premier League could soon hold emergency crisis talks to decide whether Liverpool can be crowned champions if the season has to be stopped early."

So, this will obviously affect us in the same way. We need a decision soon whilst we still have a 10 point advantage on the third placed team.  ;D

You can not buy hand sanitizer anywhere, not helpful when we are on the edge of a pandemic.

I'm still giggling that anti bacterial hand sanitizer has sold out. It's a virus not bacteria ap that would do nothing, alcohol required to kill this virus.

Best bet is to wash your hands with hot soappy water as the soap lifts the virus and bacteria off your hands.

You can buy alcohol based hand sanitizer, well, you can normally, just not at the moment.

The population of England is approximately 55,977,178.
40 are now know to have Covid-19
So less than 1 in a million have contracted it.
Be aware and be careful should be the watch words.

The number of diagnosed is 40, but with Coronavirus it's often undetected for most people so the real number is much higher. Besides, it started with 1 person and is now close to 100k worldwide so it can spread quickly.

Wondering if there is a specific reason why you refer to just England and not the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland which has a population of 66.87+ million?

I thought that the media were only concentrating on England. They also said about 1 person in Scotland and 1 person in Ireland.
I have just checked, and yes, they do mention the UK.
So 40 out of over 66 million is really tiny.
Everyone has to take care but still understand the risk of catching it, is still minimal.

I think the real problem is how it can spread through a population without really showing itself in a lot of people who just feel a bit sniffly and tired, like we all do off and on through the winter, then if it takes off it could overwhelm health services.  The wife's a nurse and she's been told there are all sorts of plans for different situations, its just that nobody really knows how it s going to pan out.

as of 02/03*

World Infection Rate:
  • World Population Approx 7.77 Billion give or take a birth or death
  • World Population infected Approx 90k give or take a bad diagnosis
  • That means that the infection % of the world is 0.00116% ish (rounded up)

Of the 90k infected
  • 81k of them are in China which is about 90% of the total
  • 4.15k covers South Korea, Italy, Iran, & Japan (inc, cruise ship), Germany, France, Spain & Singapore (all countries with 100+ cases) which is about 4.6% of the total
  • The rest of the whole world covers 5.85k which is 5.4% of the total

Deaths Worldwide
  • 90k infected world wide
  • 3k deaths which is 3.3% of all cases.
  • 3.3% of deaths, is approx 0.000039% (Rounded up) of the world population

Make of it what you will, but the Hysteria levels are way over the top for the amount of people affected as of yet. This isn't even taking into account that most of the deaths have been 70+ year olds, usually with underlying medical conditions as well. Most other peoples symptoms are ranging from nothing at all to mild flu like symptoms.

That's not to say we should be complacent, as the situation can change of course, but I think we need to dial back on the crazy about it. More people die from the various types of flu that are already knocking about within a week than this has infected/killed in months.

Its all a CIA plot anyway, they are just demonstrating to China their ability to release biological warfare if required.  Any rational person would know this.

Nothing bizarre about it, open your eyes for gods sake,
a) the only states in US with cases are democrat states,
b) South Korea full of it, North Korea nothing,
c) Italy talking of leaving EU and going Fascist

its clearly orchestrated. Don T and Kim il sending messages to the world.......

No, I just make sure I wash my hands as soon as I can.
TBH I normally do that anyway, you only have to visit public toilets to see how many people leave without washing their hands.
