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....

    • And the next round of objections to be raised, with Brighton once again appearing at the forefront of objections now the resumption of the league is in sight, are:   The Premier League are facing dissent from several clubs over a number of proposed rule changes for the resumption of the season. Sportsmail has learned that plans to increase the number of substitutes from three to five, to allow clubs to re-register players not named in their 25-man squads in January and to introduce a multi-ball system all have detractors. There is also unhappiness at some clubs about the Premier League's unwillingness to reconsider the use of VAR, which FIFA ruled last month could be abandoned for the rest of the campaign.   These issues are likely to lead to a fierce debate at Thursday's meeting of club executives, ahead of a formal vote on any rule changes next week. Each change would need 14 of the 20 clubs in favour to pass.  Many clubs support increasing substitutions to five due to injury fears in a congested schedule after a lengthy break, with Chelsea submitting a proposal to increase the number of substitutes on the bench from seven to nine, as revealed by Sportsmail on Monday.  But several other clubs argue making such a major change mid-season would damage the competition's integrity, while those with smaller squads feel they would be at a disadvantage.   Managers who pride themselves on their players' fitness and work ethic are also concerned at losing such advantages. Brighton coach Graham Potter went public with his opposition last month and many relegation-threatened clubs agree. Aston Villa would be obvious beneficiaries of allowing clubs to re-register players.  Goalkeeper Tom Heaton and striker Wesley were originally omitted due to knee injuries, but may now be fit to play.  Villa's relegation rivals are likely to oppose such a move, however, and could be joined by clubs who are still to face Smith's side, such as Wolves and Manchester United who are chasing European football next season. Some clubs feel the multi-ball proposal will deny players the time to recover from fatigue when the ball is out of play, which is particularly problematic with games being played in the middle of summer. The rationale is to limit lengthy stoppages when the ball is kicked into empty stands.   https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-8378005/Plans-increase-subs-five-register-players-lead-dissent-Premier-League-ranks.html
    • Dont remember too much thuggery about 1970 , but even at League level in England it was very difficult to get sent off without committing a criminal offence at that time. The strange thing was that Brazil were a beautiful side and probably the best international side ever, yet within 4 years had become a shower of mediocre cloggers in Germany.
    • Also on the old tournaments and away games in Europe, I love how the commentator sounds proper muffled, like he’s in the middle of nowhere where they barely have transmission. Makes crucial away goals seem so cool and important. i read recently that Barry Davies used to do it by phone. Does anyone know if that’s true?
    • It was the first time red and yellow cards where used, there was a particular woeful decision to allow Mexico a goal against El Salvador, apparently when the ball was placed on the centre spot for them to kick off again they kept kicking it away, and as it was close to half time the Ref decided the best course of action was to blow for half time, I wonder how that would go down today?  Didn't El Salvador and Honduras go to war after, maybe 69 so plenty of shithousery there I expect.  It's always been there, was it Portugal who kicked Pele out of the 66 tournament?
