I have just returned from South France , only saw 1 face mask and that was on the way out of Manchester airport last Thursday ! people did not look happy with anyone who coughed or sneezed .
I stocked up on face masks 2 weeks ago , for my work as a builder , glad i did as the prices have gone ridiculous , and if anyone is thinking of buying masks for protection then buy the FFP 3 masks !

Same as
This is population management by stealth .
Iím sure if this doesnít have the required affect a new one will soon be unleashed .
The holy grail is one like in 1914-1918 which wiped out 50 million .

As for mainstream news thatís for idiots .
They tell you what they want you to know and not reality .

I see the panic has started. Packet and tinned food shelves all but stripped clean in supermarkets as the hoarders get in quick.

Last week I bought two 50ml pocket sized bottles of hand sanitiser, they cost about £1.50 each. Just looked on Amazon and Ebay and they are going for £29.99 each. I hope the low life money grabbing b*stards that are cashing in on people's worries are the first to get the virus.

As for "how did they know it was serious..." The guy that flagged it up in China was sanctioned so that his warning didn't get out. He has since died from the virus he was concerned about.

I'm not a scare monger but if there is sound advice about personal safety, I implore you to follow it rather than bluff it out. If it's not you that may suffer it could be someone else. As I said before, my wife is vulnerable and my son is type 1 diabetic. I won't be taking any chances.

I donít buy any of it Keith, itís a virus and is killing the elderly with pre existing lung issues! No different to flu and pneumonia.......

I genuinely believe itís a test run to measure hysteria and the general publicís reaction for a virus bit like Ebola. How did the Chinese know it was bad after they reported only 1000 cases and no deaths at that point yet chose to say it was potentially life threatening blah blah blah......

As for reporting I donít read / believe anything from the major media outlets.......

Looks like the virus is spread by touch and enters your body when you then touch your mouth, it's not airborne. This is why washing hands regularly and hand sanitizer is recommended.

If you need a face mask to prevent yourself from touching your mouth then get them and join in the mass hysteria around the virus.

But before your get hysterical remember that flu kills tens of thousands every year, millions catch it.
In the UK were at nil deaths from corona so far and mortality is mainly in the old and those with pre existing conditions such as diabetes.

washing your hands regualy helps more. so id say if anyone is really worried about catching it, just walk around wearing surgical gloves..I survived TB meningitis 20 yrs ago which is caught in similar circumstances as this virus.

Seasonal flu kills around 0.05% of those who catch the virus. Coronavirus seems to be up around the 2% mortality rate. 40 times more deadly.

I saw on the news the other day one health professional claim the following

You need to be within 2 metres of an infected person to catch it

You also need to be in contact with them for 15 minutes!

Death rate is around 2%

I think normal flu does around 700,000 a year?

Masks do not protect people from this so why are they wearing them?

one upside about it all is most places are quiet..a usual 3 hour cue to get in vine pearl land took me 25 mins..some good holiday deals about aswell. 4 nights hotel half board with return flight to Portugal (Vilamoura) £140. was going to book that and naff of Tuesday but no doubt the Vietnam stamp on my passport would get southend airport in a panic
