This can change very fast though, I was told today that there are nine cases at St Finbarrs Hospital in Cork which is the largest care of the elderly facility in the south, I'd imagine if that spreads in there it could wipe the place out.

Unhappy
It would damage this forums' reputation

Of the 9 who have died so far, do we have any age stats?

I get why governments and authorities need to use statistics to try and follow a pattern, but aren’t ordinary people getting too bogged down in them? The only one that should matter to us is deaths. There’s a large number of important factors not included in those results, like the poster above who mentioned St. Finbarr’s.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Yeah definitely

The chief medical officer in NI today said there are many thousand with the virus, but only 200 odd officially have tested positive 
f**k all testing going on. You have all the symptoms and are told to stay at home for two weeks and never get tested

Just to add to that; in the past day or so I have read articles that say studies from Oxford University mathematicians reckon half the UK population may already have been infected. This is based solely on mathematical probability based on the scientific currently available, so must be taken with a small pinch of salt, but it shows that unless everybody is tested these are just rough guidelines.

I think following Iceland’s research into this is going to be the most interesting, given they have tested a higher percentage of a small population and Nordics tend to be good at keeping calm and logical in these situations. I apologise for the horrific racial stereotype there, albeit a positive one. They reckon there are as many as forty different mutations of it and have traced a lot of them back to sources that had been to Italy, Austria and seven people who had been to the same match in England. 
I could be way off, but if I am fearful of anything it is how this thing could mutate. I will be keeping an eye on that obituaries in the Reykjavik Record.

Ffs...

Yep, can see all the people whose relatives unfortunately pass away from this virus loving the name of the show. 

They really haven't thought this one through.

We look to be doing a fantastic job at the moment & hopefully we see the numbers increasing at the  same rate for another few days and then starting to slow another bit as our further measures take effect.
Here we go again

Tin foil hat time, but does anybody think the Chinese will have to answer to the world when this pandemic passes ? The conspiracy theories are gathering but do people think there will be a global backlash for them ?

Yes. Racism will be on the rise. Imagine how Italy feels toward them.

Some yanks are calling this “an act of war, 100% a bio weapon, aimed solely at US” etc etc 

Trump is constantly flip flopping between praise and racism towards the Chinese so it filters down to the rest of the idiots.

It’s on the rise in the UK with Tories doing similar to trump

Yes I can imagine that type of reaction from people but Im talking from National governments standpoint, will finger pointing start, will countries run with a theory that it was a planned outbreak, again just tin foil hat stuff, it will be interesting to see the standpoint of countries in the aftermath of this

No and there is an excellent article from Laura Spinney in The Guardian yesterday that shows why we are all responsible.
