    The Chinese government also denies that the virus can be spread from person to person but given the increasing numbers, that is looking unlikely.

    Almost 140 new cases of the virus have been reported in China, with 3 fatalities being confirmed. Additionally, seeing reports of South Korea reporting its first case of the virus as well.

    Yes, hopefully they contain it as best as they can. I’m sure it will pass over. They should do screening at Anfield and Old Trafford mind.

    China virus 'spreads before symptoms show'

    It differs from many past outbreaks then.

    I'm at the point with these sort of things though were I just assume it'll blow over in a couple of months. When the number of infected reaches 6 figures, let me know.

    Makes it harder to contain , but will pass over no doubt. Chances of getting it for us are extremely rare, and odds would be in your favour to survive it anyway .

    I’ve found a very cheap way if she does pass away. I’ll just give her body to the Chinese and they will eat the lot.

    No I don’t think so, although the papers will do their best to do so.

    Wasn't there something called Swine Flue? Turned out to be just flu?

    You must protect your Bishop at all times.

    The entire population was supposed to have been killed by BSE, swine flu, Aids, ebola or bird flu by now anyway, just add this to the list of bad colds made out to be plagues.
