    Some RL clubs could end up financially on the brink if this goes on and on, businesses and the economy in general could be in trouble.

    I don't get this 80% will be effected statistic, the UK population is 66 million so that means 52 million will be effected. China has a population of 1.6 billion but has only 80 000 effected and is slowing down.

    Isn't that the 'worst case scenario' figure? I'm not sure what it's based on. If no one is immune, then I would assume that we all could get it. Maybe 20% of the UK live in total isolation?

    I don't think it's bullshit, it's potentially very serious. For my own part as a healthy young man I'm not concerned or worried about getting it as I don't believe I'll be in any serious risk. However For 90% of the population there's very likely little to worry about, the elderly and people with other serious health issues this is a very worrying illness that could be fatal.

    My girlfriend has a kidney transplant and so takes immuno suppressants, she has no immune system and this means she's at serious risk.

    Irregardless of this it's the strain that it will put onto the already over burdened NHS I can imagines thousands dieing who could have been saved as there's simply not enough space on ICU wards to house everyone who may need treatment. Nevermind acces to life saving equipment, doctors and nurses. Then you have to think about the impact on the economy, loss of earnings from people on sick, or those placed under enforced isolation, lowered tax rates, increased government spending.

    This is starting to get very serious and no one knows how it's going to pan out. It's main threat is how easy it transfers to new victims and it could still mutate to something more serious.

    So to sum it it should be taken seriously even if your not at immediate risk, cause chances are someone in your family is.

    Just doesn't add up if you use the China Model, 1% of their population of 1.6 billion equates to 16 million and they are nowhere near 100,000 yet.

    Perhaps that's because they locked down both Wuhan city and Hubei province. Just looked on Wiki and even in Hubei with a population of 58 million and they had about 80,000 confirmed cases. So still well off the 1%.
    Where I am we have gone into lockdown today. Just about everything shut down and we are advised not to leave the house unless absolutely necessary. If you do leave the house you are told not to go within 1,5 metres of another person. The Govt have made arrangements to take over beds in private hospitals and to take over hotels to use as quarantine centres. Even the golf courses are closed which is a bit of a pity. At least they are taking some action to halt the spread. No idea what the long term plan is, but if this continues through the summer many tourist based businesses will fold.
    Enjoy the game tomorrow, I will watch it on TV, after that I can see life getting pretty boring for a while.
    On a personal level my daughter has had to postpone her wedding has none of the attendees can get in here.

    Some on here remind me of the Black Knight on Pythons Holy Grail. You may not get the full blown, you may not die, it's not about you, it's about controlling the ing virus from those that it will kill.

    Come Good Friday upto St. George's day on the 23th this siht will have hit the fan! Don't be so ing naive to think it won't.

    Have you read Catching Cold by Pete Davies Jackbit?

    It's about pandemics and what's happening now and the people who really know their stuff on microbiology and disease control said this will happen.

    Focuses on the hunt for strains of the Spanish flu frozen in the Alaskan ice but touches on why a future pandemic is inevitable. Published in 1999 I think

    Hi Ralf, no I've not read the book by R. Davies, but in a previous life have worked within a company producing vaccine for the one they expect to do us all damage, irrispective of age or condition, H5N1, Bird flu. This may be the precursor to that? But we will never be sure, but this Covid-19 is the clear and present danger and everyone should be absolutely aware that we as a nation, are going to lose a lot of our nearest and dearest, especially, if some quarters still think that this is like the Flu? It is not the Flu, follow the guidelines.

    They are also largely people who have self discipline. If they are told there is a lockdown they will accept a lockdown and behave as they are told.

    If we announced a lockdown from Monday at 6pm, the shops would be completely emptied, there would be rioting and civil unrest over kitkats and half the population would assume it doesn't apply to them as they are rich or drive a BMW or are too young to be affected by it.
