I don’t plan on getting killed by the flu lol. Unless you’re over 80 stop worrying and get on with your lives.
Media getting on the hype train and the sheep are following. Spewing up facts they’ve read on an info graphic on Instagram.

How about not being a cunt and spreading it, then? It’s great that it won’t kill you but it will kill older people and others with weakened immune systems.

Yep.

Surely the longer a given level of risk lasts for (e.g. if we carried on as normal vs doing something) it means the older and those with weakened immune systems have to completely shut them selves out for even longer. I'm thinking of my mate who is being treated for cancer, my mum with asthma, etc. I have had a mild cold so have been staying at home, it's no big deal.

And the 'keep things open' economic arguments are odd (especially about the advertising industry being effected?) as surely there is some unavoidable economic harm but that the tactics employed to reduce spread probably mean less pain in the longer term. Must be terrible for smaller businesses, self-employed (etc) - would like to see some form of bailout / stimulus for them.

my sister works in the NHS as a researcher with a desk job but is likely going to be pulled into the wards in the next couple of weeks - shows how important it is the just slow it down more than anything.

Me and the family have kinda started social distancing already. Just having the weekend at home and going on dog walks in the middle of nowhere. I have stopped going to the gym and are just working out at home. Actually only bonus is it has made me start actually putting my home gym together rather than just talking about it.

I am self employed so having to take a extended time off un paid wouldn't be great but if it needs to be done then so be it.

Hopefully this thing will reset a lot of b******t in the world. Destroy the economies.

I know I won't be able to pay my rent if I get told to stay home from my job (hourly wage/casual worker) but my parents might die and then I can finally buy property! So downside and upside for me.

The virus could mutate like the Spanish Flu. In Wave 1 it took out old people, then it mutated in Wave 2 to attack healthy young people. So if I'm dead I won't care anyway.

I'll watch laserdiscs until they evict me. Then I'll be homeless for a while, then I'll either inherit and buy a house or I'll die on the streets. Could go either way…

I dont understand a lot of the posts in this thread. In general, why is it that anybody who has a slightly different opinion, on a topic that nobody really understands yet, gets labelled a cunt, stupid and is to blame for infecting people Laughing out loud

We know that it kills old people and people with weakened immune systems - the numbers clearly support this. If you choose to carry on as you would have before knowing that you could potentially be infecting people then I think that’s a bit of a dick move.

NHS prep is poor. Even if this transpires to be ‘just flu’ consider the annual winter pressures and backup in EDs across the country with respiratory tract infections.

There’s already a shortage of respiratory support facilities in the UK, and ICU/ HDU beds at capacity at the best of times. Importantly, China was able to generate beds very quickly. The mortality in Italy > China is likely to be a combination of the elderly population and saturated clinical capacity.

It’s likely that we’ll face a non-functional health service for the foreseeable future. My clinical research has been suspended and I’m bracing myself to be ‘redeployed’ to acute medicine in the next week or so.

If you don't understand viruses or pandemics or the posts in this thread, if it makes your head hurt, time to take a break and go back to being a head in sand laddddd.
it's not very difficult to get hold of the data from various countries, read about pandemics for novel virus for which there is no cure, or understand how medically or socially vulnerable people outside your spoilt little bubble may be effected… You've shown yourself up as a thick cunt and the biggest nankid in this discussion. Really hope this virus comes to affect those closest to you… Will hit home soon.

Was reading that this thing is high risk for anyone on meds for hypertension, so that's circa 30% of male pop (?) and quite a sizeable % for females in the UK.

No. We're talking about quite severe or uncontrolled cardiovascular (CHD, anticoagulant therapy etc) or respiratory disease amongst the other high risk groups (cancer, immunosuppressive etc), not an otherwise healthy under 60-70 year old on a couple of antihypertensives.

From Nigel benn:

'Key board warrior
I’ll punch you head in son. I’m back in the Uk next month if you want a good old dust up'

Fisty cuffs? Check
Poor grammar? Check

Knuckle-dragging, meathead pleb.

Top thick to argue, too stupid to source or analyse data, so resorts to threats of violence.

OK, 'son' (laddddd term), hope you've said tata to your elderly or sick relatives, they'll be dead soon, cunt.

It's flattering (read: very fucking weird/nankid-ish) that you're still messaging me Nige, son, but my life is far too busy to engage further with people like you, so disappointingly for you, I'm not reading them. Keep trying if you like. Breathe, lad, breathe.
