I have the cough too but it's not as bad as it was!

Well take care and do whatever you need to to stay safe and recover.

 

We still expect you to report for duty once the season resumes! 😉

I had my test results back and they were positive for Covid-19.. So lucky that I just had the mild symptoms!! 

Branson owns an island and a spaceship, but he wants aid from the government and he’s happy to hang his employees out to dry the man is callous. 

Hope everyone's doing well and keeping healthy! Haven't posted for a few months due to being busy and the lack of football, but had a gradual read through this thread. Crazy looking back at the f

Thanks! I feel a bit better today!

Haha, of course! I hope it resumes on April 30th because I'm already bored to tears without it (and I have nothing to waffle on about) 😂

It’s not the cough that carries you off, it’s the coffin they carry you off in..

Thank you! I refuse to die unless we get relegated when the season resumes 😂

China isn't a backwards country by any means. But being a Communist dictatorship they like to keep a tight grip on information and try to suppress anything that might cause panic or unrest in the population (a lot more so than democratic governments anyway).

Once they couldn't contain the news any longer, they moved with commendable speed to create the facilities to deal with it. Thats the flip side of dictatorships - once they decide to do something, they don't mess around and there are few hurdles to getting it done.

As to leaving things as long as they did - I think they were just like everyone else...caught out by a new disease they couldn't recognise and weren't sure how to treat / contain.

 

Agreed, there is something slightly ironic about people from Viking nations referring to China, the cradle of civilisation as backwards.

You're both kidding right?

China is backwards on so many levels in the modern society. Their basic human rights are appalling and if you think they've done a good job regarding the virus then I suggest you watch some of the documentaries that are online. China has basically done everything wrong that they could. Doctors were hauled into police questioning for discussing a potential new virus long before it became public, people are being dragged away by police in the streets on the suspicion of being infected and journalists have gone missing as they documented the horrific actions of the chinese government and footage of police wealding buildings shut so people could be contained with no medical help and being left deal with the virus/die on their own. The dead were left in hospital aisels for days and medical staff were breaking down in front of cameras because the governemt were busier trying to contain the news rather than dealing with the problem. If you think China has done even a remotely good job then I don't think you've seen everything that's been going on. But I suppose if you think a dictatorship/communist government with no human rights is commendable then by all means feel free.

And to think I can't have that view because we were a Viking nation thousands of years ago is just baffling. China being the cradle of civilisation does not automatically mean they are a modern society today.

I think (and hope) that @Borodane is referring to the Chinese government and not the country of China as a whole. It's not the fault of the citizens that they live under communist rule.

Also without the Chinese we wouldn't have Chicken Egg Foo Yung and for that i'm eternally grateful.

You just can’t refer to China as a backwards nation, it was the first to be hit by the virus, but has controlled it to a certain extent. There have been more deaths in Italy than in China now.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with Communism or Socialism, the fact that the initial measures taken in the UK were totally wrong and based on the need to keep the economy going rather than to keep people alive tells you all you need to know about a capitalist society.

The irony is that now, big businesses in the U.K. are asking for government subsidies as workers campaign for a universal wage for all.

Branding the whole country as backwards might have been going too far as the people can't (to an extend) be blamed for actions of their governemt. I'll never understand the clamour for communism. The chinese governments handling of this crisis from day 1 shows exactly why it's not a good thing ie. cover ups, hunting down critical doctors and journalists, the treatment of the public. Imagine living in a country where critics disappear or are jailed. Would you like the army to come to your house and weald your door shut to you from going out? Dragging your loved ones at the hands and feet and throw them into a truck? Madness in my opinion.

China has a lot to answer for and getting their own epidemic under control hardly makes everything okay.

It's been known for years that their medieval wet markets are the perfect storm for cooking up a novel virus. Wild species that would never normally cross paths kept in dirty, cramped, stressed conditions. They are then chopped up and eaten in unhygienic ways, exposing humans to infected blood. The Chinese had a massive warning with SARS the first time around and didn't give enough of a crap to change their ways. 

They tried to cover up this virus, gagging doctors and journalists who tried to warn the world of what was coming. Early warnings are so key for controlling these things. Okay, their draconian controls have stopped the spread in Wuhan... but lets see if they actually put controls in place to stop this happening again.

This sounds exactly what my entire family had just before Christmas. Plus a constant chesty cough. We all got rid of it and it came back again a week later. I'm not saying we had Covid-19 before it was known about but there's a chance we could have.

I think you were, as usual ahead of the curve and had Covid-17, you hipster you. 

Having seen my son's disgraceful lack of hygiene over the years, he could have had just about anything at all, the filthy bugger 😷

    • If Muniz does fall through we really do need to get some players in sharpish We've lost 30 goals from the players who've left, including 6 of our 8 top scorers (assuming Akpom leaves) and so far have brought in 15 goals with Ikpeazu, Crooks and Ameobi  This for a side that's already notoriously low scoring and lacking in creativity What worries me is the absence of links to wingers and attacking midfielders other than Lazaro and a few washed up has beens  11 days till Fulham...    
    • What will happen is; Muniz will go to Athletico We will bid for Lazaro We will agree a deal for Lazaro  Fulham will bid for lazaro We will buy Smith from Rotherham
    • Get begging Muniz to join us Twitter link
    • He will undoubtedly sign for Fulham and play for one of the most inoffensive clubs in English football in one of the least intimidating grounds in England.  He won't have a clue though. 
    • Yeah that is what I meant. Fulham never technically beat us to Bryan. They beat Villa to him. We were technically not in running for Bryan as far as player was concerned. His 3rd and final choice.
