    Covid-19 is the name of the disease. The official name of the virus that causes it is SARS-COV-2.

    That is not to make people panic but to make people sensible.

    According to sources in the know, we are probably going to peak with the most contagious of people middle of this week because most people infected should have gone through the 14 day incubation period, so infected people will increase and then it should start to decrease, but if people continue to ignore the advice of medical professionals because they believe they know better then it is just going to make matters worse

    I'm not surprised that it will peak this week, they have only just started wrapping the fresh food up at supermarkets, watched an old lady pick up and squeeze every loaf of bread on the shelf, before she found an acceptable one right at the back,

    A few months ago we were all moaning about the packaging supermarkets use... they cannot win

    Fit and healthy 40 somethings getting hospitalised.
    To be fair he did look about 40 in 2002

    He probably looks about 60 now.

    With it’s infectious rate, more likely than anything that you have got it unfortunately.

    I’m still not convinced I’ve got it, have been drinking loads of water 5-6ltrs today and still been dehydrated though. Temp has dropped a fair bit tonight which is a real bonus.

    Well I think the UK has stepped up to combat it if the figures are to be believed



    Although there is something very wrong with China’s figures

    These are all pointless unless we know the number of people and the demographic (18 year old students vs 80 year old hospital intake) being tested. Why everyone quotes the numbers but no-one is pointing this out is beyond me.

    True

    These are just based on average statistics.

    We also know China are very frugal with their “Official figures” when it comes to releasing them to the world

    Better to get radiation poisoning than live in a police state like North Korea.

    We know nothing about North Korea, for all we know they could all be dead from Covid-19.
