    Coronavirus Death Thread

    Well, we haven't got a thread yet, although the F1 thread jumped on board.

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

    Here in Vietnam there are 12 infected, however, 3 have made a full recovery. 900 people have been quarantined at various border centers. Flights from China have been suspended. No new VISA's will be issued to Chinese folk, or foreigners who have been there in the past 2 weeks. Pretty much 90% of the population wearing masks, but they seemed to have not bothered with cleaning their fucking hands.

    The government have sent a few text messages out, the first giving people instructions regarding washing hands and wearing face masks. The most recent was slightly more patriotic

    Nationwide against nCoV. Please comply with regulations and recommendations of the health sector. Do not distribute false information. Do not profit from disease. Encourage good work, condemn negative behavior. Vietnam is determined to win the pandemic!

    Unless you're already half way to the knackers yard it's no worse than a dose of flu. It's all media hysteria.

    Says you. Remember that time we all died of Mad Cow Disease? Then Swine Flu? Then Avian Flu?

    I think the press knows what it's talking about, Spikey.

    It staggers me that when these death numbers are chucked around that thereís no context given as to the existing health of those itís killing.

    Itís as if causing a panic is the aim.

    Taking of which, whereís Margaret Chan these days?

    Indeed, if you want to stay safe you need to be clean shaven and wearing a face fit mask.

    I work in public health and this is sending some of my colleagues into grade 10 panic.

    Meanwhile I accidentally called it the Peronivirus in a meeting and nobody batted an eyelid.

    Actually I did try “bants” when someone was worrying after seeing people wearing masks in Chinatown in Liverpool. My maybe they’d been doing some sanding fell flat.

    Peronivirus was a genuine error though.

    Hello

    The masks serve some use in stopping the spread because they stop Asians from spitting everywhere and coughing into peopleís faces

    Taiwan is in full meltdown though. 11 cases and the schools have been shut and people are scared to go outside. They wouldnít let me into the bank because I didnít have a face mask on

    If it was like China which seems to be spreading exponentially then I would feel a bit uneasy, but weíve not had a new case for over a week now. Itís all down to the media though which is many times more hysterical than the UK is

    Masks are certainly useful here for that very reason. Viets have a habit of coughing and sneezing without covering their noses - so the masks are helping in that respect.

    Death Count: 724

    The school shutdown in Saigon has been extended for a further week.
    Meanwhile, the city is a ghost town today. Everyone appears to be staying indoors. Great for traffic.
    One of the people to die in China recently is an American citizen.

    Hearing a 34 year old died from this is a game changer. Unless he was already suffering from something (it would be good to know) it could throw the "it's just like norml flu" argument out of the window.

    And Margaret Chan may have gone, but the WHO is still a shower of shit. To praise China's efforts on this against a backdrop of the Chinese authorities forcing their doctor who discovered it to sign a letter saying he'd lied is batshit. Are they incompetent? Were they paid?

    And why did they advise against closing borders down? You hear it and it sets the bullshit detector racing, but one would assume they know what they're doing, right?

    If that 34 year old was healthy then I’m giving a fuck about this for the first time.

    One is an outlier, once the otherwise healthy are dropping in droves and it happens in multiple countries, then it starts becoming a concern.

    How do we know itís an outlier? Is there any information anywhere on who itís actually killing?

    The death of a doctor seems harder to suppress than your average citizen so maybe it has taken more young and/or healthy people and we just donít know.

    I thought that as well. The death toll could be a hell of alot higher and China are covering it up. Covering up the death of the Dr that warned against the outbreak... not so easy.

    The hospitals they're building in 4 days flat are both impressive and worrying too.

    If there's no information on who it's actually killing your position is as shaky as mine, so still no reason to panic. It's in countries that you would presumably trust more than China and still seemingly not killing people on a large scale. It's just a new strain of 'flu', which means it will spread fast because relatively few people have an immunity but with cases in the tens of thousands and deaths at less than 1% it's not anything out of the ordinary.

    I'm close to, if not already at a point in my life where I could drop down dead any day, so I'm not panicking.

    I just find the response to this and the 'efforts' to control it interesting and a shower of shit.

    Until one knows more everything should have been done to isolate it and it wasn't, flights weren't grounded, people weren't refused entry. This may well amount to nothing, but if we adopt the same early doors approach we have to this to something that ends up being far more serious then it'll take a shit load of people down.

    And back to Spikey's point, it's China. Lying to the international community when telling the truth would make them look bad is a national sport over there.

    Actually, while shutting the airports and trying to stop people travelling sounds like a good idea it doesn't actually work, people still travel through other channels that are harder to monitor. If you let people who are going to travel anyway use airports etc then you can screen them much more easily. The Chinese are happy to segregate bits of their population at the best of times, I don't think they'd hesitate to take more drastic action if this had been something more virulent. Some of the 'shitness' (pop up hospitals notwithstanding) of the response is most likely because the virus itself isn't that mysterious or serious.

    "He is survived by his ex-wife who now has full custody of their daughter Amber (named after his favourite porn star.)"

    John Arne, you should update the opening death count. It's 813. Only two of which come from outside China. More deaths than Sars in half the time. Although the number of cases indicate this is way less fatal. Sars was 1 in 10, this is more like 1 in 50. Assuming China's figures of deaths and cases are accurate.

    I like the internet rumours that China has secretly cremated fifty thousand victims. The virus probably accounts for about ten per cent of that, and the rest is their blabbermouth relatives.
