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

This is basically God's way of telling us He disapproves of Brexit.

Not if someone off here sends that to your boss. Good thing no-one would stoop that low  

Lets just hope for Ricos sake that he doesn't neg a certain poster who we all know is more than capable of such ballistic shithousery over a neg.

Hahaha Ive been leaving comments in the comments section of mail online on loads of stories about this. "Tory Britain" and "Welcome to Brexit" they fucking hate me. Far too many of them bite.

I can talk about this, but it involves some pretty big spoilers for the New Testament.

Joking aside, is anyone actually worried?

 

Not really, loads of ways one can die. If you worry about every virus then you'd never leave the house. Nasty that people die from these things, but in the big scheme of things it hasn't taken that many lives.

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. 

Many of the tourist attractions in Vietnam are very quiet, its a great time to visit Đà Lạt and Hoian.

 Vietnam gets more tourists from China than anywhere else and they aren't allowed in at the moment and Koreans from virus hit areas are now being turned away - some hotels etc are refusing bookings from any Koreans.

Dappy hays. We're in HCM for a week then Con Dao for another. Quieter the better.

"Normal" flu kills half a million a year, so to quote Billy from predator, we're all gonna die.

To put it into perspective, the mortality rate for "Normal flu" is around 0.1% while Coronavirus is somewhere between 1% and 2%.

 

So using your figures, it would kill between 5 to 10 million people and it could mutate into something worse, which is what Spanish Flu did.

 

Governments are right to be cautious.

That 1%/2% differs enormously by age though, no?

 

Lots of old people are going to die.

Rainhill School has just had a class come back from skiing in Italy and haven’t isolated them. Looking on the Guardian website today the advice is don’t isolate unless someone presents with symptoms. 
 

So that’s the whole school infected then.

 

Just nature’s way of finding a response to overpopulation.

 

Anyway, odds of 1.3% against. I’ll take those.

Thanks for that info, aren’t they looking for a link to the eating of certain animals?ones that eat insects? So considering that they eat anything that moves it’ll be like looking for a needle in a haystack, I for one haven’t devoured a Pangolin for ages , a delicacy apparently, so I’m hopeful that I’ll be ok .

Don't miss a trip to the Cư Chi tunnels, especially if you fancy having a go with an AK47 or heavy machine gun.

I also recommend the War Remnants Museum and a day trip to Vùng Tau by ferry.

This is the mistake that ensures it will spread everywhere. It is contagious before the infected person shows symptoms, but what can you do? Britian could be riddled with it by now and folks won't know for another week, maybe two.

I used an M16 when I was there. Always thought I'd be handy with a gun. I was not.
