    Chinese Whispers Coronavirus 2020

    this is a natural virus.....I read this last week when all these conspiracy theories started circulating in the battle for the high ground between China and the USA.....its natural....it came from a bat and was probably passed on to an animal that was captured and sold at one of those markets and it was caught by the lucky new owner of that animal......the rest is history.....

    Corona Virus

    stay away from shops and confined spaces......the US government have just released some info on social distancing.....they seem to think everyone should be wearing a mask when they go out.....we have been advised that masks wont really do a lot.....I find that hard to believe.....they must do something to help protect you and the other people around you......we have a 2m social distancing.....the US I think may be suggesting this should be increased to 6m as they have done tests and believe that sneezing or coughing can spread droplets as far as 6m.....hence the wear a mask at all times suggestion......

    Corona Virus

    Yes I know what I am responding too......I said this the other day......you are about 2 weeks behind us.....2 weeks ago we were all going out on a mothers day sunday stroll......people were having BBQ's etc etc.......things are different now......we are now discussing the threat of domestic violence and the increase in pleas for help from people/families suffering due to being locked away with an abusive partner......we are discussing mental and physical health and the affects this is all having on our population.....it takes a bit of time for everyone to get on board and get used to whats being asked of them......with all of what you have said I agree 100%......what I was disagreeing with and still do is your use of the 1918 - 1920 flu pandemic that killed in excess of 50 million people and your use of the "2nd wave" phrase..... forget what PB believes......I dont think it serves any benefit at all in raising this......for a start its a totally different type of virus.....the conditions during that outbreak were so far removed from conditions today that it should not even be mentioned......all it does is scare people.....watch out for the 2nd wave when it comes back stronger and kills people in their 20's....30's.....and 40's......thats all pure assumptions and guess work on your part.....it helps no one.....and just serves to scare people.....in 2 weeks when you are were we are now and your government are reading out figures of the amount killed in the last 24 hours and they are in there 100's and rising.....in fact doubling every 2 or 3 days and in amongst those dead are young fit healthy people......you may think twice about raising such a prospect as the 1918 flu pandemic and making comparisons with todays outbreak.......

    Corona Virus

    It’s quite inspiring hearing about how all these companies are coming together to help everyone.....Dyson has redesigned the ventilator and says he can build a load quickly.....we are building from scratch testing labs.....the hospital in London with 4000 beds was built in 9 days! And they are doing the same in Manchester and Glasgow.....when the chips are down there aren’t many better than the brits.....

    Corona Virus

    Its the 2nd time you have mentioned this in recent days so i thought i'd reply......I'm not down playing this virus and i don't see many people doing so either. I think you need to be a bit careful comparing this with what happened in 1918-1920.....two completely different scenarios with two different viruses..... Scaremongering by making assumptions and trying to second guess what this might do is beneficial to no one.....the facts are this virus will mutate.....it is constantly mutating but in most cases the mutation has little affect on the virus and how aggressive it can or might be.....if anything it weakens the virus..... People are not being complacent.....social distancing and quarantine/social isolating seems to be working well and hopefully a vaccine will be available soon.....for now though everyone is struggling to deal with whats in front of them so speculating about what it might be is of no use at all..... The Spanish Flu was just a normal strain of influenza that hit at a bad time.....crowded hospitals.....poor hygiene.....a war.....and no quarantine due to the war effort all played its part in how it spread so easily and the death toll.....bacterial infections resulting from the virus killed millions but the mutation you speak of is not uncommon in Flu viruses hence why we have a new flu vaccine each year....that was 1920.....today is 2020......this Corona virus is a different type of virus and much more stable meaning its mutations are less extreme....I am trying to remain positive......

    How is Megan doing so far?

    getting security wont be a problem.....between them they have plenty of money to pay for it but its the quality of security that he needs......the Royals have not suffered any serious security risks for years due to the security they get......It is 2nd to none......Ive seen this first hand.....I was unfortunate enough to be driving past the Farm shop in Windsor several months ago just at the same time William and Kate were returning to Windsor castle......there were 2 police motor bikes tearing up the road towards me riding in the middle of the road frantically waving their arms.....the girl in front of me panicked and braked an swerved to the inside of the road so fast I nearly ran straight into the back of her.....the red mist descended and I was telling the coppers what I thought of them......then seconds latter a load of police motor bikes came tearing past followed by their car and a load more motor bikes behind them.....I think in all there was about 10 motor bikes.....they were basically slowing/stopping any on coming traffic and making it pull to the inside.....it was a quiet lane (normally) and not a busy A road......but even so I doubt Harry will get that sort of protection from a private firm........

    How is Megan doing so far?

    I think Harry is very vulnerable to an attack of some sort now.....there are nutters everywhere desperate to claim the scalp of a senior member of the UK Royal family......he’s letting his guard drop a bit What with those recent prank calls.....she prob wants to resume her old life......I hope some other members of the royal family step up and provide him with the sort of security he needs although I doubt it’s the sort of security that she wants......we’ll see what happens but I think they are inviting trouble.....

    petrol prices so cheap

    You got the wrong person pal....... but on still out amd about working and quoting until further notice...... Hope you are being careful mate.....wear gloves and use hand sanitizer......I would also suggest a mask if going into other peoples houses.....for you and your customers sake.....you are meeting people that may have the virus.....or may have come into contact with someone that has it......2 weeks is a long time.....the situation around you will change a lot in 2 weeks and you may be looking back at who you met.....worked for.....shook hands with etc etc......

    Day to Day Diary of Coronavirus/Covid-19 2020

    Buckle up and prepare for the long haul.....if Australia is anything like the UK and from what I have been reading it is you should keep a close eye on what we are doing because I think you are about 10 days to 2 weeks behind us.....according to Government reports we will be looking at May/June before any restrictions are lifted at best......13 weeks is what they are quoting as a period long enough to get infections at a peak then back down again and under control.....we are currently still having infections from 2 weeks ago come to light...... Germany has about 55000 infections and about 500 deaths.....they are testing far more than us.....currently we are on 18000 with over 1000 deaths......if you apply Germany to us we must have at the very least 100,000 to 120,000 infections and those are the ones we know about.......this has a long long way to go before there are any improvements in infections...... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-52082781

    Day to Day Diary of Coronavirus/Covid-19 2020

    Im enjoying our daily exercise.....I think once this all comes to an end we will have a nation full of either overweight people or mega fit athletes......my boys are going a bit stir crazy after a week of being locked in apart from a bit of exercise.....my eldest even tried to suggest to us today that he may go an meet his mates.....we told him in no uncertain terms that, that would not be happening.

    Corona Virus

    not at this specific moment but it is still early on in our lockdown......that could change......must need a new pair of stronger glasses.....it did seem a little bit of an over exaggeration even for you.....but clearly mis-read your "or" for an "an".....no harm done.....in that case I don't know what all the fuss is about because having a few hundred people visiting those areas at any one time is nothing to be too concerned about.....even on a busy day if you had a thousand or so between Runnymede and Windsor thats hardly cause for concern in an area as large as they are and with so much to offer the general public.
  19. Oh mate I haven't laughed like that for a while now........that is hilarious.......

    Corona Virus

    mmmmmm......when you hear stories like these its so easy to get carried away.....for them to be taken out of context.......there was a similar example I saw a few days ago.....when you hear headlines such as "the army are now getting involved" your first thought is of battalions of soldiers in protective gear lining the streets restoring order......when in fact it meant Army Doctors and nurses were now being deployed to assist NHS staff......I just think you need to take things like this with a pinch of salt.....most of it could be totally unrelated or easily explained......interesting tho.

    Corona Virus

    It was actually quite busy for a Friday lunch time......normally most people are at work..... "Always hundreds and thousands of people there at the weekends"..............really?......c'mon that is some over exaggeration......have you been on the sauce?......do you know what 100,000 people look like......go to Wembley and watch a football match then see how long it takes you to walk the mile or so from the stadium to the tube station.....thats 100,000 people......Runnymede and Windsor are popular spots at weekends when the sun is out and its nice and warm but never "hundreds and thousands".....hundreds and thousands are for cakes mate......not Runnymede and Windsor.

    Corona Virus

    You think the population is more spread out.....see I don’t.....the areas which are inhabited are similar in density to the UK.....yes we have a few more cities but those of similar size like Liverpool an Brisbane have a similar density of population.....like the built up areas of Sydney and Melbourne are similar in density to London’s built up areas......when we lived in Perth I would never see anyone else out in the streets because people just didn’t do that, didn’t walk out of their front door.....there were lots of houses and people living in them but they never seemed to go out much.....I put that down to the sun. Just my view because I couldn’t think of any other reason.

    Yeh that’s not good.....is the lung infection connected to the virus or was you just unlucky.....Jesus some people will do anything for a bit of attention! at least your on the mend....I’ve missed all that fake right wing news

    Corona Virus

    Yes I know and I did reference that. I said the suburbs are equally as densely populated but there would be fewer in Melbourne and Sydney than London......not massively fewer but fewer.....but that doesn’t alter the fact that the suburbs that are in the central region would be as densely populated as those in London......”too many people in Europe” was the quote I was replying too which is frankly not true.....the areas that are urbanised and lived in are similar in population density as those in Australia.....I can also walk 100m from my front door as the crow flies and be in parks and countryside on my own.....it’s the same the world over give of take a few cities.....it’s just one of those myths that over here we are all crammed in wall to wall.......my walk today......6.5 miles in a very popular countryside area and I probably walked past 20 other people.....
