Is there anything more they can do stop all travel, cancel all sporting events, close all campsites, close the motorway network, no trains busses or planes, close all schools, and confine everyone to there own homes, can you imagine the comments on here if that happened.

But I would like to take your time on this fine Monday to bring to your attention, exactly what this virus represents in Numbers! After All, Numbers don’t lie.
 
So, here it goes:
 
80,000 People are Sick with Coronavirus at the Moment
of which 77,000 are in China.
This means that if you are not from China than this should remove 96% of your worry.
 
If you contract Coronavirus, this still is not a cause for alarm, because:
 
81% of the Cases are MILD
14% of the Cases are MODERATE
and only 5% of the Cases are CRITICAL
This means that if you do get the virus, you are most likely to recover from it.
 
Some say, “imma this is worse than SARS! The world is ending!” – THIS.IS.A.LIE.
 
SARS had a fatality rate of 10% while COVID-19 has a fatality rate of 2%!
Moreover, looking at the ages of those who are dying of this virus, the death rate for the people UNDER 50 years of age is only 0.2%!
 
This means that the majority of people actually recover!
 
This means that if you are under 50 years of age, and not living in China, you are more likely to win the lottery which is a 1 in 45,000,000 chance!
 
NOW, Let’s take one of the worst days so far – the 10th of February. Whilst we were enjoying our Public Holiday, 108 persons in CHINA died of Coronavirus.
 
BUT, on the same day
26,283 people died of Cancer
24,641 people died of Heart Disease
4,300 people died of Diabetes
and on that day, Suicide, unfortunately, took more lives than the virus did, by 28 times.
Moreover, Mosquitoes kill 2,740 people every day, HUMANS kill 1,300 fellow humans every day and Snakes kill 137 people every day.
 
One final thing which we would like to address is the Myth of the Mask. No, this is not the latest Indiana Jones instalment but a huge misconception.
 
Basically, people who are not sick do not need to wear any mask. A mask is worn to contain germs, in case, those who are affected sneeze (which is the most common way of spreading the virus). The mask should be worn by those who feel that they might be sick. The mask carries germs on its outer part, and, if not changed frequently, then it might actually be one of the carrying vehicles of the germs.

@leatash ...well put, but time will tell. Although I will keep an eye on the number of under 50 year olds who get infected outside of China. I think it is going to be a little higher than the odds you suggest.

Don't panic.

Let's not forget that Boris's 5000 (or was it 50,000) extra nurses will soon sort us out. 

 

 

 

 

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.

I've seen @leatash figures before.

They are 'best case scenario' which I think is fair enough.

However, I think we should hope for the best but plan for the worst. So what is the 'worst case scenario'?

Well, the UK Chief Medical Officer has said that in the worst case 80% of the population of the UK will be infected with CORVID-19.

So that's around £53,000,000 people.

Worst case scenario is that 3% of infected people will die. So that's around 1,600,000 fatalities in the UK alone.

 

So what does that mean for Dawlish? Well, we have a population of around 14,000.

So we could expect the infection of some 11,200. At 3% we could see some 335 fatalities here.

 

However, we have been told that washing hands with soap and water will help to mitigate this disease. How many of you now have alcohol hand sanitisers next to your sinks where they are not needed? How many have boxes of facemasks which will be next to useless to you? Pack them up and give them to organisations that do need them but can't get them. I'm thinking Care Homes, Schools, Churches, Drop-In Centres etc where running water at the entry point is not an option. If we all do our bit there's no need for this virus to even reach 'best case scenario' levels.

Wait for the virus to start mutating. Currently there are 2 strains doing the rounds. Again the virus has been allowed to get a stronger global foot hold because governments were more interested in their economy than their people.

When will our incompetent government stop flights to and from Italy and other badly infected countries?

 

We are now bringing back the 100 or so British citizens from the corona infected cruise ship off Calafornia !!!!!!!

 

Surprising how we haven't heard about our ferry service that operates to bring illegal immigrants from the channel to the UK for the last few weeks.

The biggest joke I have heard is how our NHS will be able to cope, they cannot cope at the slowest of times.

 

Although a bit of a win win for the government that it seems to kill off retired people and those sick or low immune systems.

 

This government is a disgrace. Just watch them close Parliament in the next few weeks and scuttle off to their bunkers.

UK government continues to drag their heels and seemingly carry out their 60% infection goal of the uk population. Supposedly using school children as the carriers as they are intent on keeping the schools open until easter holidays.

Interesting how the China infection rate has plateud possibly because they have now immunised the rest of the population through the drinking water system.......just a thought.

 

Wars of the future will be economic wars fought with biological, viral and malware weapons.. So the conspiracy theorist predict.....looking pretty solid at the moment.

HuwMatthews2 .... and I though the CIA killed Kennedy because he tried to pull the troops out of the Vietnam war. Which as everyone knows was making certain firms in the U.S, an absolute fortune supplying the War effort. I also wont mention the fact that an excessive amount of troops sent out there were not of the pale complexion.
