This US chart shows which beard styles may put you at risk

Looks like Michael Eavis might need to shave his beard.

We have to do test with these masks, while breathing in candle fumes while rocking back and fourth

I might be wrong but I haven't seen much hysteria in this thread? Most people realise that it is impossible to predict what will happen in June...

Nothing wrong with discussing things like tickets, travel, etc. on a what-if basis.

There's plenty of hysteria. Take another look at some of the posts.

Your daily posts of doom don't help either.

Happy to stop posting them.

Never intended them as posts of doom, if you look back to the start they were actually started as posts to 'de-myth' the figures the media were sensationally reporting (ie active cases vs total confirmed). Not my fault that outbreaks have happened since in Italy and the Middle East.

Given a choice of a slightly reduced chance of avoiding Corona by shaving my beard or keeping the beard I’m definitely keeping my beard. 
 

You’re probably far more likely to catch it from touching an infected door handle then touching your face.

I reckon my beard offers more protection than a face mask anyway - I can't imagine any virus getting past it.

I like the posts, find them really informative and a good way of keeping an eye on what’s happening with it globally without having to scour the internet for the information myself!

Nice to hear! I'll keep up with them for now - hopefully when it calms down I'll just move it to a weekly one :)

Nah, ignore him and keep going. Pretending there's widespread "hysteria" here is a nonsense.

Sorry if that came over a bit harsh. I've no time for people panicking for no reason.

Don't stop on my account. I'm sure most people here look forward to reading them. I don't have to read them after all.

Theres no hysteria really but lets face up to facts. Even if the festival does go ahead, (very very unlikely) most of us won't live to see it.

On the positive side, if it bumps off enough people in March, all those in the resale thread stand a better chance of getting a ticket.

Today's update:

Italy obviously the main issue in Europe  and their active cases rose by 131. Could be up to a week before we see recoveries in their numbers too (their 3 original cases have all recovered).

I've had a peak at the numbers again and noticed since my update this morning Italy have announced 37 recoveries which is very encouraging as they didn't announce any of these people as patients until last Friday. That would suggest a potential recovery time of under a week.

Early days and their case numbers will definitely rise by tomorrow's stats but thought it was some good news I had noticed (and not seen widely reported in the coronavirus live feeds I'm following).

@northernringo these are only confirmed cases. How many people have got the virus and not actually reported it because they don’t think they’re ill enough for hospital treatment. 
 

I saw something on Reddit earlier that is pretty scary.

Of course but sadly all we have to go on and probably still a decent indicator of its spread. It is estimated, due to the death rates being so 'high' (ie inaccurate) that in Italy and Iran there will be over 1000 cases!

 - This parrot is quite obviously dead!

 - No he's not, he's just got Coronavirus. He'll recover and get up in a minute.
