Coronavirus

Recommended Posts

Joking aside, is anyone actually worried? Like, genuinely troubled about future development of the virus? 

 

Believing everything that's printed in the Daily's Mail and Express like i do, I think this is the end of days.

It's a concern of course, but so was SARS, so was Swine Flu. You just have to carry on and live your life, and if it happens to you, you just have to fall off that bridge when you get to it.

 

I'm shitting myself about most things in life, why add to the burden?

My missus had swine flu. Never seen anyone so sick outside of a hospital. I was about half an hour from calling an ambulance until she perked up a bit and was just terribly ill, and not on death's door.

I had a mild bout of swine flu and it was nasty but I got through it. I'd treat the illness with the respect it deserves, same as any illness.

Saw something the other day that it looks like its come from a bio lab that's about 300 yards from this food market in Wuham.

 

I personally think this is a man made virus and the Chinese like the Russians after Chernobyl are hiding the truth and the extent of this pandemic.

 

Unless a cure is found it could be the start of the Zombie apocalypse.

Worried for my parents and auntie. All are elderly and my mum has breathing problems. This would kill her.

 

Not particularly worried about myself, although I'd like to see us win the league before popping my clogs.

Nah. When me number's up, it's up. I'm heading out to the Far East tonight for three weeks. Couldn't care less. In fact the upside is hopefully everywhere will be quieter.

Hows the drowning man feel about this?

He probably thinks that coronavirus will kill everyone that gets it until its mathematically impossible for anyone else to get it. Or something else analogous to his wank opinions on the other forum.

Wow, just wow. Yes, Im a believer that when your time's up, that's it. But at the same time, I dont walk across motorways or jump on a raft to paddle to the Isle of Man either.

 

On a serious note, while not overly concerned, I get the impression organisations like the W.H.O. and Governments are fiddling while Rome burns. God help us if it really does take hold or repeatedly mutates.

 

Some people say it only has a 3% mortality rate. Oh, so that's ok for all except the unfortunate 3% then.

 

I dont pretend to know any answers.

So that's Italy, Tenerife, Austria and Croatia now. All big holiday destinations. This is going to fucking explode.

Nice knowing you all, cunts.

Brexit bonus is that the outbreak will have fizzled out by the time we get to the front of the queue at the airport.

I guess Champions League games will have to be played behind closed doors. If at all.

 

Same for the Premiership when it gets here.

Yes. I'm not worried for myself per se (although I don't take to being sick well!). But I do have small children who would be susceptible and have already spent time in hospital. 

 

Anyone stocked up on tinned food and bottled water? Related to that, I survived eating a two year old tin of custard at the weekend.

Despite being nearly 40 I'd be ok. But I've got a newborn nephew and my mum has heart issues so I would worry for them 

Newborns should be OK. Apparently, if you are under 40, it's a 500:1 you won't die.

I'm probably a gonner when this kicks in properly, I contracted Necrotising fasciitis and sepsis 9 years ago which destroyed my immune system and pancreas leaving me diabetic. Seems like this is inevitably going to be a pandemic even if thankfully the death rates are not that high. As a world organisation official stated a couple of weeks ago that we're always playing catch up and the only effective way to contain this would have been to aggressively restrict freedom of movement early on. We're at the point where it's near impossible to trace the movement of every carrier and who they came into contact with.

 

Looks like I have a genuine excuse to be even less sociable than normal, the wife probably won't take me self-isolating myself from her too well but then again....

    • That article just sounds like 'shit we need to write sonething'. Teams will know this isn't a proper training camp and just a necessity to get the season complete, the TV companies off their back and get the players paid again.    Brighton 'intense schedule' fuck off its 9 games over 4 to 6 weeks. You could wrap it up in 3/4 weeks if you had to and it would be no more intense than our schedule over Dec-Jan the last few years. We played 12 games in 37 days this year, yet Brighton are moaning at playing 9 in between 28 and 42 days     Think Brighton might be more on the let's void the season being 2pts outside the relegation zone
    • Coronavirus: Premier League plan to restart season branded unworkable as clubs eye solution   Plans to put players under lockdown for a month to get the season finished have been branded unworkable – because clubs are too picky. The hotel quarantine plan is one idea mooted for Friday's next round of talks between the Premier League, EFL, Football Association and the Professional Footballers’ Association.     In a bid to conclude the season, one proposal is to squeeze remaining games into a condensed time frame in June, behind-closed-doors, with players kept in isolation to protect them from the risk of contracting coronavirus. Stadiums, hotels and training facilities would undergo a “deep clean”, with the players under strict quarantine, to enable the season to be completed by mid-July.   But Christian Machowski, whose company ESEM specialises in travel management for top clubs across Europe, believes the plan is unrealistic, because of the particular demands of the elite teams when it comes to hotels and training facilities.   “There are so many factors that come into play," said Machowski. “When clubs are looking to book hotels, one of the chief issues is what is an acceptable time to drive to a stadium? "Teams don't want to be stuck on a bus for 45 minutes to an hour, travelling to a game. “Everybody wants the best for their team, but there's only a small number of elite hotels that are suitable. “For example, there are two or three hotels in London where all the teams tend to stay when they play there. “To find a venue where 20 teams can find facilities up to the required standard is just not workable."   “In terms of training facilities, teams would also want to be as a close as possible, so that would present problems. “Then you would have to quarantine the same hotel staff for three or four weeks. “And if one team picked up an infection, whether it's a player or member of staff, that's the end of the tournament.   “It's not about teams staying in luxury, it's complicated because the infrastructure is so finely tuned for clubs in terms of what they need.”   Brighton have voiced their opposition to the proposal for a single-city Premier League finale. Officials at the club have major reservations due to concerns over hotel accommodation, the number of pitches required and the intense fixture schedule.   Chief executive Paul Barber also has concerns about even discussing a return to football while the coronavirus casualty rate around the country soars. “As creative as we want to be, people are losing their lives,” said Barber. “This is a serious, serious situation. We're totally driven towards completing the season but, at the moment, it is tough to talk about it.”   Machowski, whose company has handled almost 500 European games and training camps for top clubs over the past 24 years, reckons the number of teams involved also makes the plan impossible to pull off.   “You could maybe get away with it in the Champions League, for example, with a mini-tournament, because you're dealing with fewer teams,” said Machowski.   “But here you're talking about 20 teams and there's so much at stake. It's not like a pre-season tournament where there's a trophy at the end. “This is about titles, about relegation, qualification for the Champions League and Europa League, so no-one should be able to complain that they missed out because maybe the hotel, training facilities, travel or food wasn't right. “So it's not really workable, for so many different reasons.”   https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/coronavirus-premier-league-plan-restart-21789901
