Just had a debate with someone on FB as I shared a BBC article with the title 'coronavirus' presents imminent threat to public. I used the caption 'has it now escaped UK quarantine?' and was shot down and told it was hyped up by the western media.

Now this story has come out, he is eating his words

Updated ...

Patients at the city's County Oak medical centre have been advised to contact the NHS 111 phone service if they have concerns.

Eight people in the UK have now been infected by the coronavirus.

The Department of Health has called the virus a "serious and imminent threat" to public health, but the overall risk level to the UK remains "moderate".

With 66.44 million bottles of beer on the wall.

And nearly 12 million of such aged 65 and above in the UK.

Do you really imagine Coronavirus will manage to kill any more poor souls than the average cold or flu at this time of the year?

No but imagine all the peeps that are going to spazz out and run to the ER if they cough or sneeze.

I was having this conversation after the Rugby Saturday after catching up with the alleged live infection tracker .

More people are recovering than dying or so we're told ...

gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com...#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6

In fact, the recovery rate has risen against the death toll since last week .

Depends on the R nought of the Coronavirus vs cold and flu.

If it's higher and infects more while exhausting the health sector, I'd say so.

Not necessarily, but those diseases manage to kill quite a few all told. Imagine that number suddenly keeling over all within the space of a few weeks in a concentrated place. The system would be overwhelmed and it will feel all out of proportion to reality.

It's like the normal number of people who get murdered violently by weapons v. a mass murder event with a weapon. The death tolls overall may not be at all different. In fact, the first number may actually be way worse, but it's the total number of people dropping all at once and violently in the latter that shocks people.

Same idea. That's why this will be so scary. Disease just doesn't take people en masse all at once like this one could, like it is in China. That's a third world thing, not a modern world problem -- or so people think.

This is how it starts, UK cousins.
It takes out the medical staff and spreads through the populace.
What medical staff that are left able to work are going to be exhausted and left caring for their coworkers and the flood of the general population.
At some point, the system will break.

I am pretty sure that some of the cases of flu people have had over the last four might have been coronovirus. They got over it after passing it on to others. The vast majority of cases are mild, nobody would even consider it was something other than one of many common viruses. The doctors are always telling people around here that what they have is definitely a virus but not the flu viruses they test for. Most times they only test for the particular strains in the vaccine to check how it works, there are lots of other viruses out there that can effect people plus if the virus mutated, the test may not even pick up the virus that mutated away from the one in the vaccine.

Probably be more deaths or related injuries/assaults down to Choronovirus hysteria than the actual virus if fear-mongering and the hyperbole were ever allowed to take hold.

Anybody with half a brain will realize that visits to hospital emergency departments will be more lightly to increase your chances of developing the virus.

Nevermind spreading it around to loved ones and other people, when they send you back home, if you did manage to catch the thing via visiting casualty.

The best thing to do is the same as with any other flu-like ailments, plenty of vitamin C, and a few days in bed.

So 4% instead of only 2% of people who are susceptible, develope the flu/coronavirus and die.

Hardly an exponential increase, now is it?

The Funeral Directors might be on to a bit of a windfall, that's about it really.

Some parts of the UK do indeed resemble a third world nation all the same, the numbers are what they are, and so is the doom porn that surrounds this nasty flu that can cause further complications.

we may be screwed. NO WAY can the NHS, in it's current state, accomodate or cope with any additional epidemic. this i know from much recent experience. i hope this virus goes away and all is well after. i fear not.

Aye the NHS is somewhat on its arse.

Don't worry though, a wee bit Tory shaped Brexit in there Tea is apt to put them right back on there feet in no time sharp.

Sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows all around.

Nah, the NHS is fooked cuz it has to fund tit jobs, sex changes and liposuction due to the PTSD suffered by those afflicted with Social Media Complex (SMC), instead of dealing with genuine illness.

Also, the NHS was not designed to give millions of octogenarians hip replacements. The NHS needs to reset what it is truly for.


ETA...That aint a Tory or Labor issue.....its both.

When the Tories award £350 million a week to the National Health Service ile be happy.

Do you know that promise that was on the side of the busses?

When is that happening?

The NHS is on its arse for a multitude of reasons, wastage and outright neglect for the past decade being rather pertinent.
