  • Not entirely relevant but I flew into Marrakech a week ago. Everyone arriving at the airport had to fill in a Coronavirus form with flight number, seat number, origin, where they were stayng in Morocco and whether they were exhibiting any symptoms etc..

    There were also about 12 pencils to fill the form in, shared amongst everyone who didn't have their own, which seemed a good idea to contain infection :-)

  • Now the virus is here on the wirral
    This is the Nearest specialist centre at the royal.

  • I really dont understand why there are so many cases in Italy all of a sudden (and close to nothing in the nearby countries). Furthermore in a region not even that close to Prato (where the largest Chinese community resides).

    (Being Italian myself) I want to hope they took the tests wrong and it’s just regular flu.

  • I'm pretty alarmed that these outbreaks are starting to pop up outside China...

  • Cruise ships?

  • Neither do the World Health Organisation, it is worrying.

    The most likely scenario is some people came back from Wuhan/Hubei/elsewhere in China somehow (possibly by an indirect/back door route) and didn't make themselves known to the authorities.

    Hopefully the tests have been done properly but the Japanese seem to have managed to mess some up so it is possible.

  • Milan though, could be someone returning from a ski trip in France. With the road network round there I’d isolate everything between Munich and Rome, Zagreb and Lyon.

  • Stock prices tumbling in Oz, oh boy...

    I'll be WFH for the foreseeable...

  • You’ll go blind.

  • What's the alternative?

  • tl;dr: numbers are going down. slowly. could be a blip. now wash your hands.

    Except when experts say that, there's a surge of cases and deaths.

    As soon as we believe its under control it'll get worse.

    Are we still talking about TS “working” from home?

  • My chinese colleague (who hasnt been to china for about a year but holds a chinese passport) flew to mumbai from London today. They didnt let him in and he is now on the flight back 😫 utter cunts

  • Sorry to hear about your colleague. This is something that seems massively unfair. A lot of countries won't let people in if they hold a PRC passport, or a passport issued in Wuhan, regardless of where they've come from. Then again, within China, anyone from Wuhan or Hubei province is being massively discriminated against. A friend of mine was born in Wuhan but got his hukou (internal passport type thing) changed when he was a teenager, think he's pretty glad he did that...

  • I'm in "quarantine" in Shanghai now, have to work from home for 14 days. My compound seems to be letting me wander about the city with very few checks, so that's good. Can't take the metro or a taxi, or go into any shops or public places without a mask (I got drunk on Saturday night and went into Family Mart without one and it didn't go down well). Some of my colleagues are back in the office, they're not allowed to have the heating on but at least they're not having internet woes like I am. All very surreal. The roads are so quiet, I had no idea we had so many birds in the city.

    I guess air quality is better, but going for a run is a bit challenging (do you have a run-friendly mask?)

  • Amazingly, the air is just as bad as ever - AQI 109 right now, down from 160+ on Saturday. I ran yesterday (I have a few different types of mask), saw quite a few people out doing the same.

  • Saw some pics and video of all the crows in another city it wss spooky.
    Keep healthy 👍👍

  • Justin Webb on the Today programme this morning asked a virologist if Britain leaving the EU would have any impact on the spread of Coronavirus here? What idiot came up with that question?

  • Wonderful...

  • There have been some international businesses pulled out of the uk no so fewer people flying in/out and less tourists coming because they worry they need a visa or that we are all backwards Farage supporting racists might keep us safer for longer.

    Conversely, the media has been making out for the last couple years like we’d all be eating rat meat by candlelight by now so maybe people are worried we don’t have the resources to contain it.

    At last he may have found a benefit of Brexit. Shame about the transition period.
