Quoted from buckstown
I'm with forza on this, another storm in a tea cup. And if you're under 70 and stock piling food you should be ashamed. You're effectively putting other people at risk


The fact some people are over reacting doesn’t undermine the fact that this is a risk that needs to be taken seriously.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Hand sanitizer after shaking a Scunthorpe players hand is generally advised anyway.

Quoted from forza ivano
So on those figures, if it doubles every other day in a week youd have 2500 infected in a population of 66 million, the vast majority of whom wont realise it's any different from flu.its over reaction bollox


..... and 80,000 after 4 weeks. Considering that your example will double every other day then the numbers could exceed 1 million plus in a very short time

And after shaking hands with a scouser. Always check you still have your watch and rings.


The wife was going away for a girly weekend.
I jokingly remarked  'I don't know whether to spend it watching porn or watching football'
'you may as well spend it watching porn' she replied
That's understanding darling what makes you say that? I asked

She said 'Well you already know how to play football'

After 23 years in Beijing I am now in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Observation 1: The Chinese govt love planning, they do it a lot. Regardless of how much and what they covered up over this, they get their plans going pretty swiftly once decided upon and they carry them out.
Observation2: Planning in Indonesia doesn't really exist, it is substituted by corruption on a scale you would not believe.
Observation 3: Covid-19 is here in Indonesia and the government has no plan.
Observation 4: It is more dangerous for what it can do to economies than anything else.

Do what you like with this info but it's all legit.

Around Christmas time there were quite a few people in the Grimsby area that had a flu type virus that was tough to get rid of. A persistent flu that seemingly attacked the lungs, a variant of the common flu (a type of Corrona Virus) and as aggressive as Corrona Virus 19. So who is to say that this virus didn't spread some time before it was identified especially with incubation periods.

The age group this effects the most are those above 75+ and those with underlining health conditions for the vast majority of the public will over come this so the panic on the whole is ridiculous. The only ones that should be stocking food or face masks is those who this virus will really effect.

Unless it mutates into the Spanish flu just follow basic hygiene procedures and most won't even get this.


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

The worse it gets the more calm is needed.

The Government have issued their latest estimates on deaths in this country of 100,000.  The worst estimate of 80% of people catching The Coronavirus could result in 500,000 deaths.

Italy has quarantined 16 million people for a month.  Probably too late though.

The impact on society will be massive.

It is not just the elderly who are dying.  A 23 old woman footballer died in Italy.

Stupid shoppers emptying shelves of hand sanitizer when according to the medical profession it's no bloody use at all. Cheap hand gel lasts for minutes if at all. The only sanitizer that has any sort of protection is the industrial strength they use in hospitals and surgeries and that's only effective for a short time. None of it will protect you anyway if an infected person sneezes or coughs near you.

Clearly that flu came up to Scotland because I caught it. Was probably the worst flu I've ever caught. Ended me up in the hospital for the first time in my life for 4 nights on the oxygen masks & IV. And I'm 23.

My mates still joke that I'm Patient Zero of the Coronavirus but I'm hoping that's me immune to it now

The Corona virus is in no way linked to the flu viruses. The only connection is that they are both viruses, nothing can else. If you don't believe this is then check out the WHO website.
