    Though we are told that for the vast majority it will just be a mild illness and nothing overly serious. 

    I guess we may now get a slightly clearer picture of just what this is actually like now an MP has it.

    No one else has really spoken to the media in the UK after recovering.

    Read the testimony of Jason vanshoor who is treating people in Italy.Its like the apocalypse out there in Lombardy.

    Our Gov needs to act now this virus is deadly and in a scary number of cases,fatal.

    I think there was worry about a load of cases in Seoul last night, looks like it maybe to do with that.

    90 in one call centre alone.

    South Korea has gone for it in testing, which is one reason why its containment has worked so well and quickly.

    I write to my MP from time to time.

    Just emailed her saying that restrictions should be brought in PDQ. Also the Government should follow their own advice and self isolate.

    Are our MP’s going to?  Probably not but if you don’t tell them they won’t know how we feel.  The electorate have long memories. 
     

    Why not write yours.  Easy enough to find their contact details on line

    I still want to know why its a good idea to have hundreds of thousands packed together like sardines when a pandemic is on the loose.

    Why is virtually every other country in Europe banning gatherings and closing schools at the same time.

    Am i alone ?

    Can I play the cynic for just a moment !

    Lets say the NHS had stepped up its testing last week the UK cases would be much higher by now.

    The pressure to close schools and stop sporting events would be reaching fever pitch.

    Not testing doesn’t stop you treating people so morally all those who become very ill would still get treated anyway .

    But it stores up lots of problems going forward when a sudden increase in cases can overwhelm health systems .

    There’s been some very positive results apparently with a drug called Tocilizumab .

    It was used to treat patients with ARD (acute respiratory syndrome ).

    Our Health Secretary got diagnosed with Coronavirus should be a wake up call for our govt to be more pro-active, than being in sitting ducks all the time. We need to act more.

    Also will add to the panic when cases spike because of the extra testing. They’re just trying to control the narrative,  like in China.

    Meantime, first premiership game called off because of the virus because some arsenal players met one person with the disease..... meantime 5,000 fans from Madrid in Liverpool tonight.   Madrid has more ‘diagnosed’ cases than the UK and over 30 deaths (which in itself suggests the Madrid cluster is much larger than the official figures). 

    Craziness.

    Premier league  also say no other fixtures will be affected??.  Arsenal play  Against Brighton at the weekend   I thought self isolation was 2 weeks?.   Edit  just seen  2 week period is up Friday.   However during that time they played  West Ham  and Portsmouth.  Do they have to isolate?.

    Mr Cynical,

    Think they have been pretty up front.  At no time said it was going to stop or go away.

    Difficult judgement call.  Be seriously scaremongering or what they are doing?

    I think for many people they are already taking there own steps to protect themselves by in particular not going places where they will be in close contact. 
     

    Told the wife no more sex for the time being.  She said oh good!

    That's strange, as she seemed very enthusiastic when I went round. ?

    As an aside, there doesn't seem to be much hysteria or panic-buying here in Norfolk, but to be fair it does a long time for news to arrive.

    Being on leave, I'm going to try and get some fresh air out on Dartmoor today. Seems more sensible walking alone than going to the gym and will get some decent oxygen in me before we get locked down. 

    Think it's called keeping calm and carrying on...

    I'm off tomorrow and friday, tomorrow being my birthday. I'm finishing this pouch of tobacco today and then i'm quitting - got a vape at home etc.

    From tomorrow, I'm exercising - my missus who is an exercise/gym freak is going to "personally train" me for want of a better term. 

    Might be too late, might only boost my immune system by 0.000001 percent, but it's better than nothing and I have a feeling it'll do my dwindling mental health the world of good.
