In our house we now only watch the first 10 mins of news, sometimes we don't even get that far, the PM's updates if we are aware its on and all disease related programs, radio and MSM are avoided.

Is it just me but are the Journo's at the PM's updates just asking questions for the sake of it and to be quite honest a 5 year old could frame the questions better. The last 2 I heard was

From Sky - we have just had an expert on who knows 2 colleagues have just lost their sense of smell and taste and think this is another symptom?

Cant remember who from - when the food runs out what will we do?

FFS just calm down, stop trying to find the latest scare tactic, how about supporting the supermarkets, NHS and everyone involved in the supply chain. STOP trying to grab the scoop on another scare story and make your name. Why are journo's on the essential workers list and why are the markets still trading in misery and gloom. If it does go tits up you cant eat money.

Been in 2 London hospitals this week, theyíre putting on a bloody good show if itís all an act. Some staff are struggling.
Iím sure we havenít had the full story from China but the fact we havenít got a list of 10k victims doesnít mean itís all make believe

indeed they do. for the record I was just throwing out few examples I've made up in response to Waynes China theory, I made them up and all are equally as plausible as his China theory I'm sure I could dig up enough 'evidence' to convince a conspiracy theory believer!
out of interest though can you think of a more effective covert method than a virus?

And will I see the evidence that this virus was deliberately put about?
I'm not saying this virus shouldn't be taken seriously but conspiracy theories and people because they had a cough and sniffles think they've had the virus will not help matters.;
Keep calm and don't panic everyone, let's hope no one gets it but if you do don't panic and keep calm

But my missus is a teaching assistant and you would've thought one of the kids would've got it.
IMO it was a seasonal thing, there seems to more and more of these things going around in recent years due to the global lifestyles we tend to live.

The problem with conspiracy theorists is they believe in something and then use 'confirmation bias' to try and prove it.

Just spoke to a friend who works at a hospital as a peadiacritic nurse and said itís very strange as ITU there has no cases of anyone with this ďvirusĒ and is very much normal? She did confirm 1 80yr old died 3 weeks ago and that was labelled as CV yet nothing since????

Problem is mate,...these people are not self isolating at all.I'm watching them now wandering about in groups,there is nothing for them to do,the national trust have shut all parks and places of interest for example...

The infrastructure is definitely not here to cope with these people..

All the MPs and tourism leaders are saying stay away,do not come..it is an unessential journey..!!..on top of that,despite many here in the industry who will be losing their jobs ,me included,are also saying,don't travel to Devon/Cornwall,second home, holiday makers whatever..

I have not met anyone who will welcome them at this time,normally, that would be opposite,..not now though..

Parkdean and other sites should hang their heads in shame ,these sites should be closed down asap...

In the second world war,my grandparents told me stories of greed and profiteering ,....some in the tourist industry are doing just that...

Stay safe,....👍

maybe it's just for population control, cull off all the old and infirm

I can't think of a more expensive inefficient way of doing it. Surely they has to be a cheaper of doing it.
