Two more cases confirmed on a Ryanair flight.
Found in the hold, they suspect more but due to the airlines pricing policy they were in the overhead compartments.

Which is of course what everyone does when they get the flu right?

.....

How do you know that's the best course of action? Did it come via some form of media outlet?

Hey fishie

I'm in agreement about the slow news month and the repeated figures etc. but the idea that the media should've 'kept their mouths shut' and let people think it was just flu is plain ridiculous.

Of course we don't need scaremongering - but there is some balanced reporting out there.

It's not the media that cause panic buying - it's simple and unsurprising human selfishness. How lucky those people with plenty of disposable income are that they can go and raid the shelves eh? There was a woman on the TV the other night talking about how she had stocked up on her essentials - including the most expensive pasta that Waitrose sells....

Of course Farage is like a rabid dog - no change there. Any excuse to close all borders and stop those pesky airports letting in people from other countries eh?

Enjoy your poo mate

Mal, because its a slow month for news the MSM have picked up on this large style. The same regurgitated figures, people and no real updates as such.

I fall into one of the categories, as immune deficient, but I am not letting this affect my life. I could sit around and wait for it to knock on my door or get on with things, I know what I am choosing.

I agreed with Nigel Farage over Brexit but this morning he is like a rabid dog "people are flying into Heathrow from the hotspots but THEY ARE NOW TRAVELLING ON THE TUBE SPREADING THE DISEASE. What a pratt and then claiming he's not spreading fear or panic.

Anyway now off for a poo and have the choice of 200 bog rolls to use. Do i go quilted or IZAL?

So the media shouldn't let people know there's a potentially life threatening virus being passed across the globe...?

Let them think it's flu so nobody gets the right treatment and it continues to spread and evolve. Great idea

If the media had kept the mouth shut the world population would have merely thought they had Flu when they catch it......

Just goes to show how this world is continually on the edge of anarchy be it a virus, food, medicine, economies etc etc
