Don't reckon we'll get the Craggy vs Rugged Island match this year. All over 75 AND an Italian forward?

As a semi hypochondriac, overly empathic little snowflake with years and years of generalised anxiety issues, this has been doing my nut in despite the relatively non existent physical threat such a virus poses to my twenty nine year old bag of bones.  I've been going around as a vociferous enough part of the "This will all blow over in a few weeks and we'll be laughing" brigade more to convince myself than anyone else, so it's been a tough bit of realisation for me over the past few days that we're living in a changed world of the sort that's going to be a little tougher and a little darker for a wee bit. 

It's ultimately better now, though, that a clearer image is emerging of where we're all likely to stand with this thing until at least the summer. And I get David's point about the hard data on this thing, too. But in a weird way it's only part of the picture at this point. Regardless of how much of it is the actual threat and how much of it is the perceived threat, the shift has already happened and we're living in the first forty minutes of a Netflix film about a modern day pandemic spread.

 I'm thankful for how connected we all are, and appreciative more than ever of the kind of escapism you can get through music, books, entertainment.

Until the grid goes down, of course, at which point the books are subject to being kindle. There's some lazy irony in that, I'm sure.

That was a bit heavy. Here's some Covid-19 meme tax. Best one I've seen today.

The figures, and the actual virus itself are only part of the picture at this point. The greater threat comes from how humans are dealing with this. 

I'm not worried about walking the streets and catching the coronavirus, I'm more worried about walking the street in a few months time when there's desperate individuals who have lost jobs due to businesses closing, people who have little or no money, people who can't get access to certain food or sanitary products due to fuckwits stockpiling everything.

These lockdowns some people seem to want will result in businesses going under, people losing jobs, and ultimately becoming desperate. That's the threat here, not the virus.

Fuck social media and the internet. It causes more problems than anything else.

Has anybody here actually got it? I'm assuming not because we're wrestling fans and nobody should want to go near us anyway.

I've had a dodgy throat the last few days but no other symptoms but I'm playing it safe and going even less places than usual. My daughter's not helping by going through another 'pretending to cough' phase.

My friends Father in Law passed away overnight because of Coronavirus. 

A few others are self isolating.

i'm okay, my immune system is shot though

Just to put everybody's minds at ease, reports are suggesting Liverpool will still be crowned champions in the event of the season ending early.

Work have finally come up with a plan for us posties. We knock the door, put the parcel down walk two meters back then sign on behalf of the customer as CV19.

92% of cases are considered "mild condition" while 8% are considered "serious."

93% of people who have had this thing have fully recovered. 

 

People need to calm the fuck down.

 

I agree with you about the media whipping it up into a frenzy


However run that 93 percent past the 66 million in the uk.

My girlfriends mum _thinks_ she has/had coronavirus as she did had a fever with some lung issues, may have been exposed from some traveling for work. They wouldn't test her because she wasn't "high risk". Problem will be if it truly is corona and spreads to my gf's father, his lungs are fucked at the best of times, this will knock him off for sure.

I may sound a little heartless, but this pandemic mostly effects the older generations and they're one who voted for Brexit and the Tories so fuck 'em.

Are these TildeScoopz or have you seen them from credible places? Not to derail, but if that happens then there will be a lot of lawsuits going on.
