You may rethink such a comment!

Re: Coronavirus

I guess, that you are missing the point.

In our internet age everybody can say anything.
So this guy Terry Christian says something stupid, some people may agree with his stupid comment and you say that because of that many Remain Voters are happy to keep nursing homes decimated.

If you‘d keep it to that single comment - fine but you did not.

Re: Coronavirus

The main problem Higgins is that you have a problem with ME ! if I say up you'll say Down,
I say Black you'll say white.  It's very boring, very predictable and very easy to ignore, as
It's simply a take the opposite position to me stance.
You find offence at everything, always needing an apology, always needing some sort
of validation of your opinion over mine.
I know you're a long time member of AJB007 , so in any argument with you I'm going to
lose as I'm just an ordinary member. So Once again in order to keep the peace and not cause
any arguments. I will Once again withdraw My comment, I guess gallows humour doesn't scan
in Germany.  I will apologise For any Offence as Feelings beat facts in any discussion.
Please carry on the discussion .....  ajb007/martini

Re: Coronavirus

Mulan, Mission Impossble 7, Fast and furious 9, The quiet Place 2, NTTD and Antlers are among the movies that are delayed or put on hold because of Corona. Of course compared to the deaths, suffering and economic problems none of this matters  (other than NTTD, of course)

I'm a little hurt, as Vin Diesel had posted that F&F9 wouldn't be delayed !!!

Re: Coronavirus

It amuses me that reading and talking to people, everyone has suddenly become a virusologist! Even here I see one comment here which directly contradicts what a professor of medicine was saying on the TV news only today. I know who I will believe!

John Krasinski (director of A Quiet Place Part 2/Jim from The Office) is in a identical position to Craig last week—he’s set to host SNL this weekend in part to promote a soon to be released film (Quiet Place), but it was postponed late this week, when show prep is already well underway.

Also saw on the news yesterday that Australia’s Minister for Home Affairs (essentially the Aussie version of the US Secretary of Homeland Security) has been diagnosed with Coronavirus. He was in Washington last week personally meeting with Ivanka Trump, the US Attorney-General and high level officials from the Five-Eyes intelligence community.

Then there’s also Canada’s First Lady, the UK Minister for Mental Health, Turkey’s Health Minister, and a few other high up people from around the world I can’t recall right now. Really shows that no-one’s “immune” to this epidemic.

Re: Coronavirus

So now I'm affected (not infected, thank God).  As a lot of you know, I'm a professor at a mid-size university; and although there have been no cases of coronavirus on our campus, in our town, or even in our part of the state, the school decided to give the students a second week of Spring Break. . .and during that week we'll decide whether or not to make the rest of the semester available online only.  Also during that second week: not only will all us faculty members be on campus, but the dorms will be open, dining facilities and the library will be open, and students can still see faculty for advising!  So the purpose of this is. . .?

Re: Coronavirus

It's all very mixed up over here ( N.Ireland ) the Republic have closed all schools,
University's etc along with large sporting events.  Up Here we're keeping Schools
etc open, cancelling large sporting events. Yet in my home town, They've cancelled
the St Patrick's day parade, yet are still letting the fun fares open, which will get
large crowds ?

Re: Coronavirus

A good part of US cruiselines have grounded their entire fleets (with exceptions) for the next 30 - 60 days. Same with many major airlines.

Imo the right decision but it will hurt many of their employees.

My wife is working for a chinese tour operator in Hamburg who is in charge for chinese tourgroups traveling thru Europe.
She is not working since 1st February but is getting paid 60% of her income by the public insurance.
Her colleagues in China (some of them have been locked up in their towns) are much worse off.
They are not working - no pay and their living costs still running.

Re: Coronavirus

Since schools and kindergardens are closed and people are asked to work for home, we get an effect that may be uique to Norway. People move to their cabins in their thousands and many spend the days skiing. …..

Re: Coronavirus

On a much more serious note: I just read hospitals in Milan, Italy, now only treat patients under 60 because of lack of breathing machines and other critical equipment. Tragic.

Re: Coronavirus

In the search for the 'truth' about this disease, it is very easy to become victim of false rumours or reporting.

I believe we are all personally responsible for our actions, whether this is related to this disease or life in general, so I think it is important that we endeavour to seek out responsible reporting from the proper authorities then make judgements as to what we think is the appropraite action to protect ourselves and our families from infection and not expect to be led by others.

I do not think panic buying of toilet roll to be an appropriate response!

My wife is a caring assistant for the elderly. I believe that she will witness what this disease will do to our elders over the next weeks. For my part, I have this also in mind as I feel it is my responsibility to make sure I am not responsible for passing any infection to her which she will then pass to the elders. This was my position before the coronavirus anyway, to me it is just sensible to shield the vulnerable from disease.

Re: Coronavirus

Wise words.
Fake News is a problem this time too. There's an "Italian doctor" on Facebook who claims coffee works very well against Corona  ajb007/rolleyes

Re: Coronavirus

It looks like Sweden and the UK have less strict measures against Corona than the rest of Europe. Let's hope it works out for the best for everyone.

Re: Coronavirus

While schools are open in the UK, Sweden and Finland the people in Spain (and Italy?) are not allowed to leave the house exept for work and shopping for food.

Re: Coronavirus

Schools, Kindergarten etc are all closed here from Monday.

After the announcement was made on friday afternoon, shops were crowded with people and today, 30% of all goods were sold out.

We did not buy anything extra yet, but we are generally well stocked up in our basement.

Re: Coronavirus

The hoarding happened here too even though the transport of goods is working fine. Ironically the hoarding is the only thing that created shortage of some types of food (and toilet paper and diapers).

I got tested on Wednesday.  It's Saturday night and I STILL haven't gotten my results yet to know if I have it or not.  This is patently ridiculous.

Forget about cash, Toilet  paper  is the new currency.  I'm surprised the Government  isn't
Issuing  tips on its use. Don't the army have a technique of only using one ot two sheets ?

You'll be fine. And I read somewhere that analyzing the tests takes many days.

Re: Coronavirus

Live in the Falklands.

Its still Tourist / Cruise Ship season here and on a good day the population doubles when they come ashore so many concerns - this is now coming to an end with the ship companies own cancellation policy but maybe its been too late.

No testing here at our hospital whatsoever so I guess nobody will know for sure at this point if they have it!

Flights in and out to / from South America twice per week still open so everybody expecting its only a matter of time. Some idiots starting to bulk buy Toilet Roll (we only have 2 supermarkets in the entire islands and a few tiny convenience shops)
