Wow! This hasnt been reported (well not widely anyway) in EnglandAll Patricks day events have been cancelled here in Ireland.
Massive blow to what is one of the country's leading cultural and tourist events.
The damage this virus is already causing the world economy is huge
Is that an estimate? The Scottish chief medical officer said on the radio last week that the government estimate that 50-80% of the population will get it. 4% will need hospitalisation and 1% will die. That is best estimate 350,000 deaths. The problem will be when you get coronavirus victims clogging up intensive care, other people will still get sick and we just don't have enough ITU beds or staff.There's reports that 1.9million people could be infected in Ireland (almost half the population).
Cases are expected to peak in June/July.
Agree entirely!...... my personel view is they have no clue how to contain it and its damage limitation time, looking at it logically there is not much anyone can do apart from frequent hand washing, ........
Quite so, and you could use it instead of pastis to improve your glass of Harp lager. Similarly, while we still have plenty of bum fodder, if rolls were to run out, what's wrong with boxes of kleenex? Same stuff isn't it!Whenever we go over to France we always buy bottles of Eau de Cologne to use as a deodorant.
It's up to 70% alcohol and makes one of the cheapest forms of hand-sanitiser ever!
Needless to say, in the UK the Government is frightened that the local populace will drink it! As a result, there is a weakened version available from Boots the Chemist.
