    With the news in Brighton, it's time to give the South the full Children of Men treatment and embrace the Midlands and North as the future of this disease free nation.

    Oh yeah, now you're worried, now it's finally landed on your doorsteps

    If the Vietnam F1 gets cancelled, we riot.

    I'm keeping my phone close in case they decide to shut the office down for cleaning.

    Test came back negative. Phew.

    These were the stats when the thread was opened 10 days ago.

    Current Infected: 28,400
    Current Deaths: 563
    Suspected additional Cases: 24,700

    Today the numbers are:

    Current Infected: 69,000
    Current Deaths: 1,669
    Suspected additional Cases: ???


    Here in Vietnam all schools have now been cancelled until at least 1st March. That means kids haven't been to school since about 14th Jan (we had lunar new year holiday).

    Most sporting events cancelled, with V.Leagie delayed until 7th March. AFC Cup and ACL both been affected severely and many ASEAN basketball league games cancelled.

    Closer to home, Ho Chi Minh City is delight. The traffic isn't too bad, the sky is bluer than normal and it feels like a relatively pleasant city.

    Someone in my work was away travelling for the past month in Vietnam and some other bits of South East Asia, I think. She comes back tomorrow.

    I can’t understand them just letting these people waltz back in.

    The official line from the WHO is that it's easier to track people and control the outbreak when you don't close borders.

    My view is that that's bollocks and they're in the pocket of big business and governments and will say anything that those groups would like to hear, irrespective of how true it is.

    A whole town has now been quarantined in the north. Residents are receiving a 40,000 dong daily stipend for the trouble. That's less than $2 a day :/

    There's also a video of about 1000 Chinese sprinting over the border in Vietnam - however, it looks a bit dodgy to me.

    I dunno. I suspect it wouldn't have spread like it has in China now the country's been on a sort of lockdown.

    Oh I'm sure it would have spread in China come what may. It's whether it should have been helped to come over here that's the issue. We willingly let it in.

    On that, why are governments expected to evacuate their citizens in the event of this sort of thing? They chose to go and live there, and it's not like it's a warzone with a general breakdown of law 'n' order to compensate for. You wanted China, you've got it.

    There's approximately a 0% chance any of you will ever have anything to do with this virus. Even in China there's pretty much a 0% chance. I have no idea why you guys are at all concerned about this.

    Why does discussing it mean we're concerned?

    I've not wrapped my house in foil.

    Will we ever have an outbreak that puts the world into I Am Legend mode?

    Not really you, although a healthy adult dying from seasonal flu is not that uncommon either so that's not a "game changer" for this virus

    I dunno, I've been to a fair few high risk airports lately :/
    Though I have been wearing my mask and cleaning my hands every two hours, so I should be good.

    Looks like you're about to drop the shitest Drill album of 2020.
