So other countries are basically shutting themselves down completely... and we’re telling old people to reconsider going on cruises?

Also Borris: "Things seem tough now, but remember, we will get through this epidemic" - well, not everybody, clearly.

The UK Govt is considering banning major public events but not yet.

Not good news for Glastonbury I'd imagine.

I mean BJ said  they are only "considering the question of banning major events, including sporting fixtures" - not because of the spread of the virus, but because of the burden it puts on public services (taken from BBC news). To me that suggests that things may be cancelled in the short term (March/April) to delay the inevitable spread, but by June A LOT of people will have had it and the risk of overburdening the NHS is much less likely - I feel like this is good news for Glasto

This is absolute madness now. I've seen they are looking at stopping schools or they have done at least in Ireland. Where is the sense? Because you really think those kids are going to stay at home for 14 days? Yeah right. And why schools. What logic is behind closing schools? How are parents who are expected to go to work meant to cope? I'm glad I haven't got that concern.

Sorry to anyone that disagrees but the way the media has handled this is pretty atrocious. If anything they've caused the panic buying loons to loot my local Tesco and Asda.

Boris Johnson and the majority of Conservative Party can jog on.

But I think the Government is doing the right thing here.

I linked it earlier, but it's based on behavioural scientists and govt advice over the last 20 years of so. It's not necessarily a boris thing.

This is a fascinating news conference, the Chief Medical and Science Officers are giving decent explanations for their actions. It does give me a bit of confidence, especially the comments regarding mass gatherings.

 

They have said we are 4 weeks behind Italy however the response is different so they hope this means we follow their trajectory. I really hope they are right.

I understand people wanting to remain positive about Glasto but how on earth can you take positivity about it from that? It’s literally the opposite

Yup all the media had a meeting and decided it's good to get all the events they cover to be cancelled.

Peak 10 - 14 weeks away - that sounds like nail in coffin to me...

Yep, unfortunately v much looking that way. Don’t think various authorities, police, healthcare will have sufficient resources to absorb the peak and be able to staff a festival.
