Okay, so this IS concerning issue, enough so that we are getting several threads on it, plus media has been dabbing here and there with it.

Truth is, with the largest population centers in China, there is some seriousness funkyness incubating among those bodies.

I've been reading that this is easily transmitted through simply breathing on someone, NOT GOOD.

If this continues, perhaps manufacturing may be affected? The Virus could probably be boxed up by accident with the air, survive overseas to some poor sap opening his order and taking a deep breath of that initial chinese air locked away in those order bags, BOOM Coronovirus.

No sirs.

Hi andy06shake good posting and something by the sounds of it we should be very worried about. Jeremy Vine had some geezer on earlier who was an 'expert' on these things and they are having millions of Chinese flying all over the world........................ When we do the checks in the West at the airports they can't detect the illnesses as they mutate or something well AFTER even the longest flights and airports screenings. So they are sending these peoples all over the world jeez it's a Commie Plot! Trump if your's reading these ATS, BUILD THAT WALL around China and it's not only economic please!

The books are alway better.

The movie was indeed rather watchable.

I liked Stephen King's "Cat's Eye" also if im honest.

Anyhoo i seem to be somewhat going off-topic.

My bad.

Yes, unfortunately, i don't see walls stopping Coronavirus much.

No Commie Plots but it does seem to be a concern to watch out for.

They said something about loads of Chinese moving all over the place for their new year will spread it everywhere
I never saw a Chinese when I was a kid except in the local Sunny Hill takeaway. Just Caucasians, Indian/Pakistanis and caribeans and Irish back in the olden days in Britain ............................... You now see Chinese everywhere around here they'll be spreading it everywhere

The symptoms REALLY sound like what 3 of my kids had over the last 2 weeks. Like identical. I took the first one to the doctor and she was tested for flu and strep throat, both came back negative. So cold meds, vaporub, ibuprofen, and 7 days on the couch. Somehow my wife and I, and the other kid didn't get it.

Just keep in mind that its people who will ultimately spread the disease not just Chinese.

The world spun mate, all sorts of different colours and creeds all over the globe these days, and i would not wish to see it any other way.

I'm from Glasgow i remember Chinese people here, as far back as the 80s, not sure about before that, but my first Job at 16 was for a guy named Mr Lim in a Chinese food market affair.

You probably didn't get it because it's something that you've already had and built immunity against.

Guess what? Antibiotics don't work! Know why? It's a virus, and antibiotics never, every worked on them.

Think they are remaking "The Stand" if you are interested.


Aye Spanish flu was a bad one, lucky indeed that it became less deadly in subsequent iterations.


Read hound dog's post and thought of the first line of the book The Stand.

This is how the world ends Not with a bang but a whimper.

Just like with meningitis, there are both viral and bacterial types of pneumonia. Bacterial pneumonia is a common secondary infection to colds and flu just like sinus infections, but whether or not we'rye talking antibiotic resistant would depend on what strains.

Well, i don't need to guess much, after reading the posts.

Apparently you get better when the viral infection has run its course.

But if it leads to other complications like bacterial pneumonia, aka inflammation of the lungs due to bacterial infection, im apt to think some form of antibiotic might be on the cards, if they can find one that works.

I certainly agree with your second sentence.

But i would not get too worried just yet, as anything able to put a significant dent in our numbers would probably need to be of the airborne variety and this spreads via contact, to date anyway.
