Beaten SARS on terms of death toll. Nearly 1000 dead.
We'll be fine, we're up to an additional £700 million that's been put into the NHS already, aren't we?
Aren't China just calculating the death rate as ~3% of the total reported figure for infections? Suggesting the true death rate is actually significantly higher?
Well it works both ways, a lot of people will be infected but not really suffering severe symptoms and not seeking treatment and not dying. It takes a while for the data to settle down I suppose too
I thought it was more that way, its around 2-3% of recorded infections, those who don't present at medical centres because they don't feel ill enough or out of fear don't get recorded, so the mortality rate is actually way lower.
Coupled with the infection rate apparently flattening out, I predict this being OLD NEWS by March
So it's been rebranded Covid-19. I think this will appeal to the youth demographic.
Shame it's not been called Javid.
Are they trying to make it sexy?
they're trying to come up with a name that has instagrammability appeal
Isn't that @Zu-Klara's nick catfishing on grindr?
19 in a good light* I’ll have you know
Probably means the mid '30s wing of The Gammon Army can start drinking their shitty lager again without getting confused.
Case in London. Mel dead.
Oh teh noes, not Lundun!
Maybe Dominic Cummings will get it.
Funky and Kitty Kat to cancel all cinema outings for the foreseeable future
Poor Ellie faces quarantine
What's the SCORE BY COUNTRY? Aren't we QUITE HIGH?
Madonna to cancel Madame X show due to Coron...OH
Is it transmitted via carrots?
Only if they are the anal option
Honestly how long have you been here?!
Hang on... Madonna has Coronavirus after shoving a carrot up her arse?
As you were.
A family in the next town over from me are being "tested" after a trip abroad according to my PROBABLY SCAREMONGERING LOCAL RAG
WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE
Oh fuck me!
Mel messaged me last night on insta. Confirmed alive.
@Zu-Klara, without mask in coronavirus zone, wears giraffe costume to protect herself
I have a feeling coronavirus is going to be the star of the Carnival this year.
I wasn't really caring about this because you know Chinese people but I just heard on the radio that it might mean a SHORTAGE of APPLE PHONES and NOW I'M REALLY CONCERNED
But I am due an upgrade this year.
Thank GOD I got my Apple Watch just in time. One can’t bare the though of what could have happened if I hadn’t
I'm just here to say: fuck people on cruise ships.
2 EUROPEANS dead in Italy now, surely this is the end.
TBH I’d rather die of this than have to live in NATIONALIST BRITAIN. Queen Olga is probably doing us all a favour
I got back exhausted from a weekend in Berlin only to be told an hour later that work is cancelled for at least a week due to Coronavirus. Flying home on Tuesday after scrambling together decent connections that don't cost a brick, but worried that they'll close transport from Milan now. Bleugh.
Should have just hid in my Berlin hostel for another week.
Well the important thing is that nobody overreacted
I’ve got a massive headache though
Ha. I'm not as worried about the virus so much as I am about being stranded here for a week as everything closes and all my friends either go elsewhere or just cancel their return flights.
Hope you don't die Diddy. x
I’m probably being ridiculous but I’ve just had a package delivered from China - is it safe to open?
(actual serious question)
yes, it is safe.
Billions wiped off the stock exchange. Beat THAT, Brexit.
