    If the yute voted in the same numbers as the boomers, I think we’d be seeing a different response. The Tories would become an irrelevant political sideshow if the boomers and their older siblings went away. Every cloud.......

    And if I had to put my bog roll on it, I’d say this was a Russian operation. Salisbury might just have been a dry run. It’s not much of a stretch to imagine Putin ordering the dropping of an engineered virus in a Chinese market in a bid to both destabilise the West and weaken China. It’s telling that Trump keeps referring to it as the ‘Chinese Virus’ too, as if to drive that home.

    And it would have been obvious to everyone in the Kremlin that liberal democracies would have found it nigh on impossible to contain this. It’s a Putin and Eurasianist wet dream.

    And we know they were engineering shit like this back in 2015...

    That's weird. I was speaking to someone last night who works at Oxford university. He's been studying some of the data and he seemed to think that it was an engineered virus specifically to target the elderly. He thought it was more likely to be Chinese in origin though.

    If true and proven, I would expect nukes to be raining down on Beijing and literally nobody would lift a finger.

    It doesn’t make any sense for the Chinese to damage their main export markets. They really have nothing to gain, and quite a lot to lose if the West implodes economically. And would they really release it in their backyard? Unless they’re going for plausible deniability?

    It’s like a Tom Clancy blockbuster wrapped in an Infowars meme and deep fried in a twitter storm.

    I was suspicious about Russia as they seemed to be virtually unaffected by this, however it look like their reported numbers may be suspect.

    Coronavirus infects 7 family members and kills 3 after they met for dinner

    Coronavirus infected seven members of the same family after they all met up for dinner, with three of the relatives so-far killed by the disease.

    Grace Fusco, 73, died Wednesday in New Jersey after a battle with Covid-19, the disease caused by coronavirus. When she died, Fusco was unaware that her eldest son and daughter had already been killed by the infection. Her oldest daughter, 55-year-old Rita Fusco-Jackson, died on Friday. Carmine Fusco, Grace’s son, died hours before his mother on Wednesday.

    Grace Fusco’s cousin and family lawyer, Roseann Paradiso Fodera told The New York Times that four other children in the family also have coronavirus and remain hospitalized – three in critical condition – after the disease spread rapidly through the family following a group dinner earlier last Tuesday.

    Tragically, a fourth member of the family, Vincent Fusco, died on Thursday. On Sunday, two more family members were confirmed to have tested positive for the disease.

    ​In Italy so far, 7000 have recovered and 6000 have died. The death rate would have been much lower if people had followed advice and socially isolated. The infection rate would have slowed down, allowing the hospitals to treat the majority of cases, instead of having to turn people away due to lack of capacity.

    When cases were low and the hospitals could cope, the death rate was around 3%. It’s now creeping up towards 50%
    The virus didn’t kill all 6000 people. The attitude of the public did. Unfortunately, the attitude of the British public has been no different.

    UK cases are likely to increase rapidly due to lack of social distancing over the last few weeks.
    Consequently, the death rate in the UK could match, or even overtake the death rate in Italy. (">

    The People of the uk are mouthy pricks who would rather have a pint and get pissed on a weekend rather than think about the weak and frail in the country.

    Here in our town people are already being fined for being out for no reason other than why not.
    Some of these pricks deserve to get it.

    Theo Usherwood is the political editor at LBC and caught COVID-19 a fortnight ago. He makes a very powerful case for isolation based on his recovery from pneumonia.

    this seems to be the most granular UK map i can find, but the data is a day behind.

    the arcgis dashboard doesnt break down uk into regions or show specific locations of cases. cant believe we dont have a proper live uk map yet that I can find.

    They need to work on their legend colours, three tones of almost identical red on my phone display! Looks like my areas fucked though.

    Someone about 15 mins from here with underlying health issues died from it recently and there’s been more reported deaths in Essex too.

    realtime updates underneath this one too.

    It’s being said that summer weather will help but how?
    There are countries where the weather is already hotter than our summer and yet they have corona bad.

    Portugal was 28*C a day or so ago when I spoke to my folks yet it’s spreading there too.
    There are countries a lot hotter than that in he same situation.

    Other viruses in the Coronavirus group like the common cold (not influenza) dissipate in the summer time and return in the winter.
