Kind of like how a poor newsreader gets treated.....

a black man calls a white man an ape that's an insult
a white man calls a black man an ape that's racist...

and people wonder why we're fed up with it all

Alistair Stewart should be reinstated immediately....it was a total politically correct knee jerk reaction.
What is wrong with thin skinned folk these days....can't they shrug off what they feel are insults.
All I can say is that they must be very insecure people.

Re: Corona Virus

I am not sure what the scores on the doors are regarding the Covid19 virus right now,but the population of the UK is around 60.7 million.....so if we have 85-100 cases it is not worthy of all this panic.
Panic that is being generated by the media.
If you are under 60 years old and you get this you have a 98% chance of a full recovery.
If you are over 60 (or have other complex medical problems)then you have an 85% chance of a full,recovery if you catch this.
You may not get it at all.
It is time that people started using their brains and putting things into perspective.
No...I am not saying that this infection does not have the POTENTIAL TO KILL.
it does in the same way that I have the potential to become a millionaire.

Take precautions, be sensible, but let's live cheerful, not fearful....experts have been wrong in the past.

Re: Corona Virus

Given the way one Chinese guy has already been treated and he didn't even have the sniffles, publishing their names would be like saying to the stupid thugs out there "hey - here is someone who you can go harass, beat up and burn down"...

It would be like a KKK revival meeting outside their house.

Do the government publish the names of everyone that gets the flu every year? (no)
As far as I know that kills over 600 people every year.

Re: Corona Virus

As usual the public in general are overeacting to this virus, with panic buying, i know of one family that have cancelled a £5000 grand holiday they have lost the money. everone has been told its more dodgy for people of my age and older, but the chances of getting it are VERY small. we go away in 2 weeks time and i sure aint cancelling.

On this day in this country: Your chances of catching this virus is about the same as your chances of being involved in a serious road accident. As for dying from it, about the same as a really big lottery win.


Obviously this will change with the passage of time but how much and when is not yet properly predictable. People have very poor ability to judge risk, this adds to the Lemming Effect, and panic buying is one consequence.

[QUOTE=Margaret Pilkington;
Panic that is being generated by the media.

or is it just good for sales and viewing figures. would have been interesting to have seen the present day media reaction to the dunkirk evacuation and bombing raids on britain. do not worry folks, the virus has not hit love island yet and there is time for it to be cleared up before that jungle starts up next november.

Re: Corona Virus

If you really wanted to make something that would give you some added protection(hand washing is the best though)....you could do worse than adding ten drops of lavender oil and ten drops of tea tree into 100 MLS of water, put it into a micro spray bottle.
Spray this on your hands(shake before use) don't over wet....and rub your hand together until they dry.
It is important to realise that over use of hand gels and antibacs can get rid of you natural friendly bacteria, leaving the way open for more dangerous bugs.

It is really all about PERSPECTIVE.
Everyday life has risks attached to it....risks that we hardly give a thought to....the current media coverage is magnifying the risks and creating anxiety and panic.

Re: Corona Virus

A couple of bottles of Domestos should cover all eventualities & Beer, stay home drinking Beer (other beverages are available, but don't taste as good) & I reckon you'll be right!
