The lack of people on this thread who are suddenly experts on medical matters to do with the transmission of viruses is most refreshing I must say.
We’ve to get a flight tomorrow and the youngfella has a cold. This could get real interesting.
i'm about 1km away. my wife has been getting the bus into town with probable typhoid marys (and fintans) for the last week or two.
one of the things i've not seen comment on, in relation to containing this thing, is that if any country fails to contain it (i'm looking at you, iran), the only way to contain a global spread is to completely close your borders to people who have been to that country. at least until a vaccine is readily available.
this time last week I had to actively go and seek out information. Since then I've been impressed with the amount of information that's fallen into my lap, without needing to make any effort. I presume that's the same for most people (be it via telly, radio, social media, papers, etc). That is definitely going to help. So, while definitely not experts, I reckon people will be reasonably well informed.The lack of people on this thread who are suddenly experts on medical matters to do with the transmission of viruses is most refreshing I must say.
July??Lots of travel being cancelled in my work. Also my eminent doctor aunt (clinical director of the National Institute of Aging in the US) has had her travel to a conference in Dublin in July cancelled
This is the end.This is the end
No matter what they did some prick from a tabloid will have been working round the clock to dox some child.Also have to laugh at the reaction to not being told the name of the school in Dublin. I was away from SM for most of the day yesterday. When I checked it at around 6:30pm I saw the name of the school before I saw any notification that 'they' wouldn't be officially identifying it. The backlash of people giving out about not being provided with information they already know, is classic twitter. Had 'they' officially announced it, I'm sure there'd be a backlash from others saying they shouldn't be telling anyone. Damned if you do.....

The slowdown of industry in china will probably be visible in the tree rings. Look If anyone I know gets this thing I'd be super worried, but looking at the sociopath styled grand scheme of things, long term half the developed world being too afraid to fly why global shipping has a % slowdown is possibly going to lead to a % visible carbon reduction, the kind of thing you couldn't ask people to do.
or, ironically, if reports that the virus is not heat resistant, are true, it's global warming that could end up saving us.Well on one hand you could have a net reduction on pollution based deaths in the long term, and on the other hand they have it where your parents live now so a bit from column a and bit from column b, past self.
