When there is a vaccine, I wonder how it’ll be distributed? Like Contagion, I could genuinely see a lottery system to roll it out. 

If it was the 80s it would be tories, rugby people, war veterans

.. chelsea fans..other cockneys... yorkshire folk...mancs....brummies....geordies.....miners...scottish/welsh...asians...scousers...with irish/west indians fighting it out for bottom of the ladder.


Because of Laura Whitmore the Irish were doing well and pulling out of the relegation zone just ahead of the Syrian refugees and the homeless but then Jimmy McClean made them the ire of middle England again who before that tweet were concentrating on the abhorrent cheek of bottom placed Scousers being champions of England when any decent human being knows the season should be voided and football should not start again until the 9th August when the new season can re-commence, so thanks to McClean, we will now get it ahead of the Irish just after it is distributed among the cross dressing, vegetarian, heroin using refugee who pisses on a union jack every morning.

One for the numbers diviners on here, from WSJ live updates.


Latest Virus Numbers as China Admits Its Tally Excluded Asymptomatic Cases

China said for the first time that it excluded people who were infected with the novel coronavirus but haven’t shown symptoms from its national tally, as questions arise about its accounting of the infectious disease.

On Tuesday, China said there are at present 1,541 asymptomatic carriers of the coronavirus in the country. Of that group, 205 people recently returned from overseas.

Chang Jile, a top Chinese health official, said the country will—beginning Wednesday—start reporting the number of asymptomatic carriers. He said this will be done “in order to respond to society’s concern in a timely manner.”

Mr. Chang said all asymptomatic carriers will be quarantined for 14 days and released only after they are medically cleared.

In recent weeks, concerns have grown about the risk of infection spreading by asymptomatic coronavirus carriers, as the country relaxes its control measures in Wuhan city, the initial epicenter of the virus outbreak.

New York has 200,000 carriers and China (where it started) has 1,500? 




It says at present, which would be after two months of restrictions.

The more I see shit like the Imagineinies, Madonna, and this, the more I think we need a real Celebrity Death Match to keep us entertained during lockdown.




British artist Tracey Emin is sharing a visual diary of a week in her life during the coronavirus lockdown.


Emin, known for her unflinchingly autobiographical and confessional artwork, has been posting personal photos, videos and writing on the White Cube gallery’s Instagram account


In her first diary entry on March 26, Emin posteda video of herself in a bubble bath, with a cafetière and tray of food at her feet. 

She wrote: ‘Today I would be happy.. today I would celebrate my solitude.. if I were not filled with an over powering sense of fear.. A darkness.. that has made me want to live more than ever. I was almost content, to sit and wait out my end.’


In her most recent post today, Emin shared a video of her working on several large paintingsin her studio at 4.45am.


The artist will share her final diary entry tomorrow.

More people died of Coronavirus yesterday than any other day in Spain. 

Apologies, you are right. This can’t have been updated when I looked earlier...

Saw an article this morning suggesting that the rate of death in China could be far higher than admitted based on personal testimony of people given back remains / urns of their loved ones. A figure of 42/46k was postulated 


On a more cheerful note , Crace made me chuckle in the Guardian this morning.




The thing I don't understand with these announcements is that in the great majority of cases ( I'll give our mini-Chancellor and the medical lady a pass ) the contributors seem flummoxed by the most straightforward and easily anticipated questions that are asked. It scares me that it appears that I put more preparation into my appraisal & development meetings with my line manager than these people are putting in to solving the country's most desperate situation since the war.

But BBC reporting 849 as the high... anyway, I suppose it's stopped increasing so dramatically. Small mercies and all that.

There is a difference between how Worldometer reports / updates now and some others, it all depends when is the reset point as some countries still report throughout the day. Germany's total for example appears only towards the end of the day on Worldometer.

Overall, Spain and Italy have been slowing down over the past seven days or so, France had bad numbers yesterday, elsewhere in Europe it appears it has also mostly slowed down or stabilized.

    • John Barnes says he does believe Liverpool will regret missing out on the signature of Timo Werner because he was not fully committed to the joining them.

      Chelsea have agreed a deal to sign the RB Leipzig striker, despite the widely held view that the Reds were in prime position to seal the transfer.
        The news may have come as a shock as well as some disappointment to Liverpool fans who were looking forward to have another class forward joining the ranks.

      But it seems the only set of individuals not surprised were the club hierarchy themselves who were not rushed into reacting and engage in a bidding war with the West London club.

      John Barnes believes there is a clear reason for that as he explained to BonusCodeBets(via The Mirror).

      “Liverpool want players that want to play for Liverpool. I'm sure a lot of people were after [Virgil] van Dijk, but he wanted to come to Liverpool.

      "If they don't get a move on and Manchester City, Arsenal or Chelsea come in for him and he decides to go there, that's not the sort of player you want anyway.

      "Because he'll just go where they're going to pay him more money or he wasn't that committed to wanting to come to play for Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

      Jürgen Klopp does things in a very measured and strategic way, almost testing the nerve of the player regarding how much he wants to play for the club.

      Patience is the key and when they do sign on the dotted line, Klopp doesn’t just throw them to the wolves, instead he waits for the right time to bed them into the lineup.

      It could be the case that Klopp believed that Werner would grow impatient with that type of process, and therefore he was not the right man for the club.  

      Barnes believes that Werner may have failed the Klopp test and cited recent examples of World Class talents who were more than willing to join the Reds.

      "I don't think they have to get a move on, they didn't get a move on with Van Dijk or Alisson and a lot of people wanted them to, it's because they wanted to come. 

      “This is a test to see if he really wants to come and play for Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

      “Considering how things have panned out it seems Werner didn't pass Klopp's test, but at the same time Liverpool - who didn't meet the deadline - failed the forward's too.”

      Former Liverpool captain Jamie Redknapp agreed with his former club not purchasing Werner and questioned where he would fit in the lineup.

      “Who is going to replace. He’s a really good player, but we don’t know right now, is he better than Mane, Firmino, Salah?

      “It’s one of the best front three in the world right now so he doesn’t want to go somewhere and be a number two or a sub.

      “Will they regret it? You don’t know but that is what he has got to do. He has got to make Liverpool regret that decision, or at least make them think ‘I wish we had signed him.

      “For Liverpool, they have got to look at it and think, if you bring someone like him in it could upset the balance of them and maybe they might think, ‘would it be worth the risk to bring in another player.

      “They have three top-class players who don’t get many injuries, why risk upsetting balance.”
