COVID-19 And it’s effect on everyone and everything

This time I believe it comes down to the weird eating habits of the chinese people. The stuff they eat and the hygiene of where they eat it are bound to come back and haunt them and thus the rest of the world. 

There is increasing evidence to suggest that the origin of this current nasty isn’t from the Chinese food markets, but rather from more laboratories making mistakes.

Cultural eating habits and consumption of certain products can cause localised problems, the outbreaks of corona type viruses in China and their spread due to food eating and across the world due to travel make me more likely to suspect that the origins are much more Lab based than Labrador based. 

The proximity of labs doing work with bats seems to me a much more likely source of this and other previous corona types. 

However what ever the source things are going to get nasty for some people and it’s going to be a scary time, all we can do is try to be understanding and not cruel or cowardly when we all get asked to make very unpalatable sacrifices, remember it’s not the end of the world and we are not being told MFC is merging with NUFC.

Does that mean each table will have their own waitress/waiter?

And how do you separate the workers.

With the life span of the virus not known measures will be long standing 

Not since the end of WW2 have the populations of the world been asked to change their habits and practices on such a wide scale, and like post 1945 societies for good or ill never fully return to how things were before.

your question is the obvious one and it’s answer obvious but unpalatable to any government until it’s forced to act, sadly it’s up to every individual to asses their own personal safety but imo by now there is no more safety eating a sandwich made at home than a sandwich bought from a cafe. But the big thing is we all in the same boat and panic and selfishness are not going to speed up a cure.

Totalitarian State answering to no-one.

You can bet we do not hear what is happening in North Korea as well.

Similar to the people's republic of Middlesbrough FC then. I heard Steve Gibson and Xi Jinping are best of mates 🤠

3 Leicester City players are self-isolating after showing symptoms of coronavirus.

Whole of Real Madrid in quarantine... probably won't play Champions League. 

I wonder if this will be the last weekend of football for a while.

In that they're both terrible and will result in lots of suffering throughout the country? This is the most spot on thing you've said on this thread!

No, just lots of people with an opinion and if your opinion is different to others you are classed as a moron.  #prophetofdoom

Was also just a bit of humour, obviously wasted.

Well if you ignore facts and experts then you're not far wrong there.

This is often my problem on here.  People just don't want to hear from the more learned amongst us 🙁

Really interesting points there. Its certainly more sensible to look at the situation in Italy rather than what happened in China. Much more similarities and much more reliable data. What I find astonishing is how people would rather we carried on as normal and decide not to limit social gatherings in the form of school closures, sporting events postpones, concerts cancelled etc etc. Are those things really worth the life of a person? Get a grip.

The reason restrictions haven’t  happened in the uk yet is because it’s too early. If restrictions are put in to soon they don’t work. You can’t compare what’s happening in Italy to the uk because the Italian government has completely mucked it up. 
here’s a report about one of the first cases in Italy.

I'm no spring chicken mate.  I'm just not a sheep, opinions are like *** holes.  We all have one.  But if anyone disagrees with your opinion on here then you are branded a fool

Suspend the season for a period of time and then play it out if/when things settle down over the summer.  Delay Euro 2020 until next summer.  The players will still be getting time off, it'll just be now instead of June so that shouldn't be too much of a problem and Euro 2020 is spread around so any financial burden of it being postponed until next summer won't fall on one country.

The issue with cornoavirus is we must stop everything have everyone on lock down. Until the virus stops spreading. As what we doing currently is someone has to get the virus for said place to shut down the horse has already bolted then and most likely given it to countless people

    • I think the Parkinson sacking may bite the Makems in the backside. I assume there is more to the story than just the on field performances, if not they may just have sealed their long term fate in League One for a very long time.
    • Whoever gets it has a job on their hands. Used to be known for bringing local kids through and according to relatives most of the promising kids from the area choose us over them now
    • my late wife met him at a fan convention in Harrogate some years back and she said he came across as a very straightforward guy, spent a considerable time chatting to her and her friend and even got a couple of the other guests (Kenny Baker and Jeremy Bulloch, I think) to do the same. Viewed himself as an ordinary person who'd been lucky in life and was just as happy to send himself up as play serious roles, but took the Green Cross Code very seriously to the extent that he was prouder of that than his role in Star Wars... One of his favourite sketches      
    • I think Bettinelli is a good organiser and engages with his defence. His Goalkeeping ability is average at this level like a lot of other Keepers. I think we have to remember that if he was great he wouldn't be here. When Shay Given came on loan just watching him was a joy and that was including the warm ups where he was aware of the kids walking behind the goal waving flags when he used to tell the players to stop firing practice shots at him in case it hit one of the little ones. Small things but they matter and tell a lot about the man. He always made marks in the turf (probably much to the annoyance of the Groundsmen) so he knew his positioning in the heat of the action and was always exercising to keep warm and alert. Another Keeper I liked was Paul Smith, a comparative nobody in the history of Goalkeeping but I have positive memories of him always giving his best during his short tenure here. Likewise I have good memories of Danny Coyne. I remember when Mark Schwarzer first arrived he was a good Keeper but his kicking was terrible, he struggled to reach the half way line. After the first Summer break something had improved (presumably coaching and practice) immeasurably as the length of his kicks were half as much again after that.   Willie Whigham was a real character, Jim Platt possibly my favourite whilst Steve Pears was probably one of the best in living memory. Keepers, they come and go, some leave positive memories and some like Valdes and Guzan are best forgotten about.
    • You mustn't have been at that game then, that Boro fans felt we had a better chance with ten men tells the true story. He was an absolute liability, appallingly poor, how on earth he had earned a living in the professional game is a mystery. That Villa fans beforehand had nicknamed him "Bad" instead of "Brad" fills in the gaps.
