Corona Virus - Should we be worried?

Have you seen it? I’d like to join in the hog roast joke, but honestly it’s the most vile, heartbreaking thing I’ve ever seen in my life. 

Ah, fuck it- yeah epic hog roast. The crackling looked delish 

Have you seen the live caged pigs subjected to a nuclear blast for testing purposes? The West is perfectly capable of this sort of cruelty.

That footage was being shown on The Gas Tower at about 2 am as part of some documentary about nuclear war. Serious bad vibes.

Good morning all. Don’t post much, more of a reader than a writer.  Thought I’d share my personal experience of the outbreak. I’m based in China, in one of the provinces worst hit by COVID o

Update. I coincidentally saw them again today. Turns out they could source the hand sanitiser from China after all and actually ordered double the amount!  It will keep for years so no problems there.

All the containment in the country, and all it takes is for an infected illegal immigrant to come by boat and the whole process restarts

He no longer wants any mysterious girls to get close to him

You're not allowed to get close to Peter Andre unless:

You've submitted a 14 day travel history and blood test to his people.

And then quarantined for 7 days.

And then stripped and scrubbed in 80% alcohol gel for 30 minutes.

And you wear a mask.

And goggles.

And close means within 5 metres

I haven’t seen it. And gladly I’ll try and keep it that way! And god, grim - no need to see that at 2am while ballsdeep in a gurner

To be fair to Peter Andre, I read that story and he said he was hugging everyone and didn't know the posters had gone up. Was quite a funny tweet actually. Still dont want to touch him though.

Think the pig burning was when swine flu was on. But point well made...

I wish it was but the video was dated 26th feb. They seem to think culling the animals will help control it better. 

However they seem to miss trying to clean up the dead bodies in the streets. It's been a mess.

I saw it. Captivating and grim.  We invented and exported a lot of cruelty out of Europe.

Not sure if this has been posted already but with 77 pages on this topic already i wouldn't be surprised if it has, we've been through this panic a decade ago but thankfully i wasn't old enough to worry about how it would effect Glastonbury, now that i've got my ticket for my first year i'd be so disappointed if it was cancelled but would understand that it's for the greater good but seeing as it survived through Swine Flu i'm sure it can withstand Corona

Have watched the documentary since after being intrigued by it, I'm a big fan of Eric Scholsser's book on the subject Command and Control and he was involved in the film making but late night in Shangri-la was just way too much for me.

Yours was the right call :)

It is now much more likely than not to be cancelled, I'd think a miracle is probably needed. The best case scenario seems to be delay the spread of the infection and from what I've seen the definition of 'success' for this is shifting the peak number of cases out by +2 or +3 months. This would take us to beginning of May, June respectively but this would only be the point at which infections had peaked. It seems completely improbable that we would have eliminated the virus from our shores by June and as such can't see a scenario where such a mass gathering of people would be allowed to go ahead.

Different video then. I watched one a year ago or so.

I'd say that Eurovision organiser's approach is going to be the most sensible option for all forthcoming large scale events:

Eurovision plans 'unaffected - for now'

The organisers of this year's Eurovision Song Contest say plans to host the event in Rotterdam in The Netherlands remain unchanged despite the outbreak.

"It is too early to comment on possible scenarios, which will depend on what happens in the coming months, and for now we are going ahead with our plans for the event in Rotterdam," a spokesperson for the European Broadcasting Union told Efe news agency.

The contest begins on 12 May.

This is not necessarily true, the festival is still nearly 4 months away.

Err, see above. I think most people think this is going to be eradicated etc. It's not, we're now moving into delay and all this does is exactly what is says, delays it. If this is successful, which I think everyone wants it to be, this by it's very nature means infections will be very high or peaking at the time of Glastonbury. Also people need to understand that delay will not reduce the numbers of people being infected (possibly v high - we've all seen the reasonable worst case 70-80%) just spread it out over a longer period to allow our health systems to cope.

Hopefully some actually statistics will help dampen the naysayers and fear mongers amongst us. Obviously it’s far too early to tell much yet, but the overall picture is pretty good news. 
 

I also heard an expert (not a government mouth peace) on 5 Live last week explain how it’s more than likely that this virus will just become another strain of seasonal flu we have to contend with, of which it is from the same family.
