There is a lot of knowledge amongst us, I exclude myself.
The COVID 19 is dominating the news:
How worried should we be?
Will this be Spanish flu proportions or just another contained outbreak as SARS and MERS were?
Oh – and when will we start to see ‘Just in time’ manufacturing suffer?

The good thing is once you have had and recovered from the virus you are then immune and can’t pass it on from your breathing etc but you can still pick it up on things you touch and spread it to others that way, wearing gloves and washing your hands is the way to stay safe even after recovering from the virus.
It will get to a point where there will be a large number of the population who are like this and then hopefully it will start to spell the end of the spread.March 31, 2020 at 1:14 pm #110725

The window cleaner is still doing his rounds! Is this classed as an essential business, is he a key worker? It’s handing the cash over when he knocks on the door that I am more worried about.March 31, 2020 at 1:17 pm #110727
He doesn’t have to be an essential business or a key worker, wmc. The test is if he can work from home or not…March 31, 2020 at 1:52 pm #110730
Vinalspin unfortunately that appears to be untrue, evidence from South Korea appears to show that you can indeed catch it again with patient’s who had it, getting it again within weeks.
Also evidence shows wearing a mask does help but the need for front line NHS staff to get a constant supply has resulted in the general public being told a mask is of no use.March 31, 2020 at 2:28 pm #110731
Agreed Brydo, a nasty and very devious virus. Friend had Dengue fever in Rio. (Same mossie that carries Zika, west Nile etc) first time flu like. Second time ICU. Third time dead. Case in Japan came back after 14 days. Herd immunity policy was as ill conceived as it was callous. Certain karma that it’s architects have caught it.March 31, 2020 at 2:39 pm #110732
Further to my gloomy predictions for the airline industry, it is much worse than imagined. BA Gatwick and easy grounded today. An old warhorse was just spotted by my wife on her walk. 747 on its way into Bournemouth Hurn. One of 5 to be parked there. Others in Cardiff and France. Will be an impressive sight when eventually let out. Fleet numbered 57 when I left. A380 s off for a vacation in France. Travel might never be the same as a full recovery unlikely. If we think our APs are expensive, imagine the leasing cost of $475 million dollar A380. Hurts a bit when parkedMarch 31, 2020 at 2:51 pm #110734
I’ll see where they park that 747 when it arrives. South perimeter taxiway hasn’t much room left…March 31, 2020 at 3:01 pm #110737
Thanks wigwam. Wasn’t that big when doing my training in 1975!
more bad news about transmission.March 31, 2020 at 3:05 pm #110738
Ops. Link failed again. In the mail Nebraska scientists. Scary.
if you can look out another 747 has just passed Bournemouth pier before right turn to land east. Should be with you very soon.March 31, 2020 at 3:10 pm #110739March 31, 2020 at 3:16 pm #110740
Looking at flightradar24, he’s parked up on the old north runway with the Virgin aircraft.March 31, 2020 at 3:20 pm #110742
Brilliant. Thanks wigwam. More than a touch of nostalgiaMarch 31, 2020 at 3:21 pm #110743

So what you saying is they withholding infomation and basically, lieing to the public and imo if they can cover up other stuff and lie for 25 years. Seal reports for 100 years or go to war or knock on your door because of your views or to check your thinking etc and take you to court why not on big stuff too.They can do anything like drop atomic bombs.
The un agenda 21 now 2030 is about sustainability and i reckon the system reset is coming, they need to cause chaos, so they cannot be blamed for it and then offer the solutions so they stay in control.
The new era.
like it’s china’s fault, russia’s fault. Someone’s always to blame but the war mongers or big pharma or the central banks (which are private) who meet at davos with those that matter to discuss the global way forward..
Those elites like branson who want a bailout and ain’t paying his staff, take hols until further notice.
Are these the ppl we trust. those that treat their workers or the disabled and the sick, like us with such a flippant attitude. like finding ppl fit for work or worse taking away the help they need.. causing ppl to end there lives.
Meanwhile the global economy is shutdown virtually. Plus what’s suddenly happened to terrorism they stopped becasue of a virus, alot don’t add up… either way is not much we can do.
They control the flow of food and water and energy, that we depend on, just as well it’s not the air we breathe (was a movie about that as well) but follow we must, those in authority or it will be worse, when the power goes off.. the troops hit the streets and they inact martial law.
we the people are in checkmate right now.. billions are losing jobs all over the globe. That may never work again.. even wild animals are reclaiming the streets and it has only been a week of lockdown.. It cannot happen no… Anything can happen. Thats my mindset if i beleieve it or not don’t matter. it if it’s possible it can happen like what’s happening now..

Wild animals won’t claim the streets in China. Get eaten, which is where all this started, as did SARS. Once Asked for a translation of an item on the menu in a Beijing restaurant- monkey penis.March 31, 2020 at 6:39 pm #110759
Shouldn’t this be on the meal ideas thread?March 31, 2020 at 10:28 pm #110789

Which are the best hand sanitiser wipes to buy ? I’m going to my big Tesco 6am in the morning to miss crowds

All our big Tesco shops don’t open until 8am and are at their busiest first thing. Hope you had a successful trip. We picked up a click and collect today. 79 items out of the 80 we ordered so happy and have managed to secure another two spots for the following two weeks.April 1, 2020 at 11:54 am #110841
If you want a hand sanitizer that will actually kill the virus it has to have an alcohol content of at least 60%.April 1, 2020 at 12:48 pm #110844
Our big Tesco was open 24 hours but now 6am TIL 10pm I’m going early in morning no crowd then and shelves stocked and can park easy
