    Re: Coronavirus

    The first Britain to die from corona virus has been confirmed this morning (he was on the cruise ship), and now someone has tested positive in Wales.

    I believe it's spread to 50 countries now, including Mexico announcing their first case in the last hour.

    Yeah the one on Wales is linked to travel from Northern Italy.

    Chinese movie industry seems virtually dead. I know this is like 99th in terms of importance with regards to Coronavirus, but going to be interesting how companies like Disney reevaluate their plans with say Mulan knowing they wont be able to profit from its 2nd biggest market. Even thinking back to last year's Endgame, no record and probably $600M less profit. Woof.

    Re: Coronavirus

    China's a big cash cow in the movie industry for a lot of folks. Disney will certainly be relying on it for Mulan and it's usually a big factor in Marvel numbers too so assuming this panic lasts a couple months longer it could take a big toll on Black Widow's numbers too. Should it keep going, the Fast and Furious franchise is actually STUPID big in China and Universal might also be sweating the effect this could have on Fast Nine.

    Obviously the people themselves are the big concern here but it is fascinating to think of how this could impact a number of different industries.

    Jeez, Trump axing the CDCs budget for testing and dealing with pandemics sure looks dumb in hindsight.

    Re: Coronavirus

    I mentioned it in the mafia thread but I’ll put it in here too just in case anyone wishes to discuss it.

    There’s a confirmed case in the Deloitte building next to mine so we’ve all been told to work from home. With accountancy firms, it’s common for people not to work in one set office (especially at a huge firm like Deloitte, and many people hotdesk. It’ll be a nightmare for them to track anyone else that might be affected.

    Re: Coronavirus

    I think the UK have been too relaxed in how they're handling things, particular when Boris last Friday said they'd hold a meeting about our prevention plan the following Monday as if the virus likes to take weekends off like he does, but that's nothing to how silly the US have been. The number of cases is going to dramatically rise over there.

    I'm honestly thinking there's going to be a spate of Scottish cases over the next two weeks and it's going to suck. I use public transport so fuck my life.

    As for USA, well, yeah, they're fucked because people can't afford to pay for the coronavirus.

    1. I dont think anyone is trying to pay for the coronavirus

    2. In many situations, they cant even get a test done if they wanted to. Doctors, hospitals, and the government itself has absolutely no handle on it and where to even get tested. The U.S. isnt prepared for emergencies that depend on protecting the vulnerable (most likely because it doesnt care about them).

    Re: Coronavirus

    It's always going to spike anyway. I know the worst it to come but we can help prevent things by doing the simple things like handwashing properly. My concern is the amount of scaremongering in the media. Yes it can lead to people dying, but let's be realistic about the numbers please.

    What worries me most is the amount of people that are just now realizing it’s important to wash your fucking hands.

    Not only that, but 'you should cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze' or how useful tissues are when you're ill. People should not be hearing this advice for the first time if they are over 5 years old

    From a Scientists POV, I'm loving how crazy people are going over anti-bacterial gel for a virus not realising soap and water is more effective protection against it than blobbing some gel on your hands.

    Re: Coronavirus

    people need to also look at the recovery rate.

    theres about 94000 cases. 3200 died( mostly old people, many with pre existing conditions) 51000 people have recovered.

    As Baldrick said, the media is going crazy over this and people are overly freaking out. that doesnt mean...dont use caution

    Pretty much this. Once you get over the hysteria and realise that the mortality rates of this are less than the Flu, it’s easy to not worry about it. They’ve done really well to blow the whole thing out of proportion.

    Coronavirus is more deadly than Flu. About 34 times as deadly actually going off of the mortality rates between both. However, as the coronavirus gets older, this will decrease I think. It's still new.

    Also, Ed, yeah, that's hilarious. I've heard some people complain that they're not producing an antibiotic for corona quick enough. Morons

    Also if any of you are worried about hand sanitizing gel etc, you can make your own.
