Hey guys,

Hows everything over there?

Hope you all are ok and riding it out.

Alot of hype and over reacting here, but there's difference between being prepared and being a f*kwit Laughing

I hope you not at the beach Woody :-P
We call it kung flu,
will be chaos here if gets to big numbers as governance and medical support both poor quality :-(  ...
Does seem like over reacting but it pretty big deal when gets into big numbers .
Only plus for me and you is hot dry climate seems reduce/slow virus spread .
Bangkok on shut down, all bus terminals packed out the doors as people heading out to rural homes, this going see a hike in infection numbers and provinces with cases as ideal spread conditions packed in tour buses and vans with aircon .
Shops been hit hard, many people been buying extra freezer to stock food ...
Hope the UK keeps it under control .
One thing can learn from Italy is acting in advance to infection cases to reduce social interaction will pay off and only way unless willing for deaths be high .

time for good due diligence and some luck too . hope you all stay safe and healthy .

Deaths in Italy are high because the elderly live with the whole family, over here we chuck the old people into homes Razz

A lot of over reaction if you ask me, the only good thing is the roads round me are a lot quieter so better driving experience is the old girls....

quite a few younger people dying too if develops to severe pneumonia .
Here we have lot of families 3 generations living together, Mrs B family house most times have between 8 and 12 people from 5 to 75 years old .
Problem here too is our medical insurances not covering it once declared pandemic, will be expensive if couple family members get problems .
Expect lot of the old in UK care homes be glad to die, that an expensive miserable last years of life, just liquidates most the assets to private or government pockets so next generation gains little and stay working until 70 .
While not exactly doom and gloom tabloids printing it will be messy in huge numbers as simply not enough available care/treatment .
West won't cope as well as china/Asia as won't be as ruthless in handling it and accepting deaths .
Western news doing it's best create public panic and fiscal doom just for the viewing numbers .

Dont get me wrong me, its obviously really serious, gotta take alot more precautions with hygiene but going out and buying 1000 toilet rolls so no else has any, is the ridiculous part. Its going to be like hitting the reset button in alot of ways though.

Social media is just a joke aswell and making things worse. I read the news and you open 2 articles and they say something completely different, so alot of misinformation out there and people saying stupid things and sending more people into a panic.

Yes, the mass hoarding just pretty selfish .
Had people queueing for hour or more before BIg C and Tesco Lotus opened then things like toilet roll, cleaning products, milk and eggs all gone in an hour .
Standing in queues seems a good way increase your risk though !
I'll just go without milk and use ration the toilet paper :-)
social media and news in general just making things worse .
Johnny right on social class/wealth/benefits too, that a big issue here too.
low working class flipped the middle finger and left to starve .
