    Well sorry but I grew up being told the End Is NIgh so I am a bit resistant to it now.

    Heard it all before, Sars, etc

    It's hardly the Black Plague, we haven't got bodies piling up in the streets.

    And people keep forgetting the old and unwell are the majority of deaths. As always.

    What are the daily/weekly road deaths in the same countries?
    I worked for everything I have. Most successful people have done the same thing.
    No, you aren't "entitled" to it. Too damn bad, Get it the way I did.
    WORK FOR IT.

    Stupidity is harder to cure as there is more than one cause in road deaths.

    IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - CORONAVIRUS
    Last evening dining out with friends, one of their uncles, who's graduated with a master's degree and who worked in Shenzhen Hospital (Guangdong Province, China) sent him the following notes on Coronavirus for guidance:
    1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold
    2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose.
    3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates the Sun.
    4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.
    5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours - so if you come into contact with any metal surface - wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap.
    6. On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will kill it.
    7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice.
    8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but - a lot can happen during that time - you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on.
    9. You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice.
    10. Can't emphasise enough - drink plenty of water!
    THE SYMPTOMS
    1. It will first infect the throat, so you'll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days
    2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further.
    3. With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing.
    4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you're drowning. It's imperative you then seek immediate attention.
    SPREAD THE WORD - PLEASE SHARE.

    I noticed that many eBay sellers from China are on "leave". Also some items I have ordered, though been marked as shipped should have arrived last week or two but have not...

    Confirmed cases in China is slowing down everyday but cases outside of china keeps increasing. I hope this wont affect the businesses.

    This is interesting. The book was written in 1981. I have the book on my computer and have checked the text and sure enough it is there on page 555. Just thought I had better check
