Bet those with a secret pvc fetish are relishing the opportunity to come out into the mainstream. Maybe @Lycra could morph to PVC.

Would it make my bum look big 🤔

 

This would definitely be unflattering to my beer belly body shape. Can you imagine how hot you would get in that (if unlike me you could fit into it).

I like the sound of bubblegum smelling hand cleanser, would give that a go.

There is nothing we can do about how governments decide to deal with this virus and that makes me feel powerless. I might do a bit of panic buying myself later , just to make myself feel a bit better (whatever happens I will have books to read and beer to drink).

Im saved! 

Except that it’s a virus. Not bacterial

Are people really panic buying? 
 

I’m not sure anyone in Cornwall has really noticed.  
 

Going to the shop soon so will do some shelf emptiness research.

If they didn't cancel for foot and mouth then they won't cancel for this.

There was someone walking through Manchester city centre with a full face respirator something like this one yesterday. My first reaction was to laugh. Then I thought, damn, does he know something I don’t....

Don't worry. Simple soap and water kills it.

Wait until the panic is over. It'll be a lot quieter for you to do your own panic buying and there might be some bargains by then

Sssssh. I know,  but dont take the thrill out of being a successful panic buyer and walking out the shop, chest out, head held high, with the last pack of sanitiser!

Should I start posting some empty shelves photos to enable people to know exactly what items they should be panic buying ? :)

I see France have now banned all gatherings of more than 5,000...

Yep. Half Marathon of tomorrow in Paris suspended. 

Meanwhile in Spain they don't care with 50 cases and the government saying that is not necessary to ban big public events at this point... 🤨 The "fallas" celebration of Valencia (one of the biggest of the year) start tomorrow and they are hundreds of thousands.

I work and live in West Cornwall and no where has hand sanitizer a left. A local pound store said one customer bought 40 bottles the other day. Apparently the schools are telling students to bring hand sanitizers in as a few have just returned from ski trips to Italy
