The Walking Dead is, perhaps, a little extreme though. The authorities my take a dim view of beheading people for coughing and looking poorly!

OH has just started watching this from the first series.  Who knows why so long after the event, as it were.  Perhaps he is planning ahead, so he can defend me from the infected  :unsure:  :nowink:  :lol:

Or plan how he could get away with chopping off your head, if you start coughing  :lol: :lol: Axe or chainsaw accident?  ::) :ohmy:

By series 7 they're really nonchalant about the zombies, hardly missing a beat in their chat as they kill them. Yes, I know they're already dead but .. oh never mind :)

As with all these things, we realise the real monsters are people.

Yesterday at the local Tesco, (where I know the boys and girls).  One said to me, you're not stock piling those hot cross buns are you, I know you eat them everyday.     But they did have a list of what was limited to two/person.
Into the Post Office, the lady behind the counter was wearing blue plastic gloves.    Who can blame her.!  Mrs Bouquet

Sometimes my mind wanders, if found please return.

I'm keeping a very close eye on the news about this and really feel that those of us at high risk if we catch it should consider self isolation the moment there are cases in the local area. If I was 20 years younger, I'd be far more relaxed about the prospect of catching it and the evidence would suggest that the safest group are young children so closing the schools may be a counter-productive move.
Still, the government has been following the best scientific advice and people like the Chief Medical Officer are not dummies!

  Closing schools isn't necessarily to protect the kids. They can still spread it. They are the safest group but they aren't very good hygienically. :wacko:

That's true but children off school means parents off work to look after them - if those parents are vital - nurses, doctors, police etc...

There was a man 2/3 weeks ago before the first community caught case who bought in dried goods and hydroponics. He had respiratory problems and was locking himself in the house and growing veg indoors to keep himself going.

we went to do our monthly shop today and it as normal quite busy plenty of groceries including toilet rolls hand wash the only restrictions where on paracetamol limited to two packs and I only seen one person wearing a face mask

I think good old Donald has acted on the side of caution to try and limit the spread of this virus to the US and I think this country  needs to act and do whatever it takes to try and contain or hopefully stop the spread of this virus to the most vulnerable

I also think we need more information from  the W.H.O what actually caused this virus and what's needed to stop this sort of think happening again maybe people from where this started like China need to change  there eating habits and that's putting it lightly I just hope for all that we can find a cure very soon

Fact is they don't know for sure if it did come from another species - it could be a mutant that's naturally happened from a harmless corona virus. The government can't stop it unless they start taking actions like rounding up families to the camp and isolating towns. Even then, one person on the rush hour tube could infect dozens of people who in turn infect dozens more.
Latest statement from the PM admits all they can do is delay and slow it down - this will save lives but I'm afraid many are going to die. If you're a fit 30 year old, expect a bad cold - if you're retired with a few health problems on top, you may well need a high care hospital bed. The benefit of delay is there are others who need those beds, especially in winter - if they can hold off the peak and spread it out then many more will survive than otherwise.
There's a very informative article on that here:

Bit heavy going but worth persevering.
