This coronavirus in China - PL suspended until 1st June
anyone else worried? 9 dead so far.

CNY soon so the virus will spread very quickly if they cannot control it. It'll be in Europe by the end of CNY if not earlier.

is this the end of humanity?

Sven, I could identify who I’ve been within 2metres of for 15 mins within the last 2 months

I would think anyone following the guidelines could ?

If you had tested positive yesterday and got a call from one of these Test & Trace people at 9am this morning and were asked to identify those you were within 2m of for 15 mins or more in the last week could you do it?
And do you have their name and number?

If a West Ham fan gets ill in a few weeks can he report that he was close to Raul Jiminez and Ruben Nevez c/ Wolverhampton Wanderers FC ahead of the season restart game?

Morning, SON.

To be honest I carried on. The only symptoms released at the time were continuously cough and a temp. I had neither.

I sort the advice of the boots pharmacist opposite work and he said “remember the normal fevers are still about” and there was no need to worry.

The smell and taste thing wasn’t even in the media when I had it. If I knew what I know now about the loss of smell and taste, I would have self isolated.

Re: This coronavirus in China - PL suspended until 1st June
They've been told to stop selling those antibody tests because of 'fears over reliability'. I think thats more over the way the test is taken rather than the actual test itself.

I'd quite like to do one, at the end of Jan I got ill, felt like i'd been hit by a truck. Lost me sense of smell and taste for around a week and just felt surprisingly rough. Always thought that it was too early to be Chinese AIDS but it turns out the first case in France was in late December so it's feasible that we could already have been among us.

Ag at people buying and buying into ancestry DNA

Re: This coronavirus in China - PL suspended until 1st June
Ancestry DNA said I am 4% Bantu.
My mother's side of the family (she is Welsh) were involved in Colonial exploits so the finger firmly points at that side of the family.

1/32 is probably most of us!

I'll be OK as long as they don't discover Welsh ancestry is problematic (apart from the usual problems that is).

Re: This coronavirus in China - PL suspended until 1st June
Balance of probabilities is that I'm 1/32 Indian, having had an ancestor who got married out there, but was of too low a rank to import a bride from the UK.

Unless it actually happens, I'm slightly amused that I might die because of something romantic that happened about 200 years ago.

Difficult to tell at the moment as verified UK data is limited, but for some reason Filipinos in the UK seem to have a relatively poor survival rate.

Don't ask here, if in doubt ring 111.

Without wishing to set off another round of insane conspiracy theories*, aren't Asians of Chinese descent doing slightly better in the stats, in contrast to almost all other BAMEs?

*while they infect a small enough and passive minority, they are amusing. But they have the potential to become anything but

I've got sore eyes, runny nose and a scratchy throat. Should I call 111??!

The big difference with this one is the way it can infect one person and cause no symptoms, and can kill somebody else. This huge variation in impact has caused massive head scratching as it has behaved very differently to almost every other disease.

This has also helped fuel the differences in people's reactions and opinions as individual experiences have varied so much.

It would seem that the genetic factor is looking more and more important. Virtually all of the patients at the Nightingale (all of whom were seriously ill), were of Asian or Afro-Caribbean descent.

Towards the end, the congestion was only bad at night, but the senses only returned after it had completely gone.

You'd hope so.
They never managed to complete vaccine trials for these as they both vanished too soon.

Re: This coronavirus in China - PL suspended until 1st June
Some viruses are horrible.
30 years ago my Mum became very ill and nobody knew what it was for a while (both my parents are medics albeit in eyes). She felt terrible one night and Dad finally persuaded her to go the A&E which was just as well.
A bunch of diagnostic tests later it was discovered she had viral cardiomyopathy and one of her ventricles had stopped working completely as the muscle had atrophied.
30 years on it still doesn't work very well but if they hadn't gone to A&E that night she'd have been dead.
I never knew before that tha viruses can get to your heart.

The irony now is that my Dad is helping with some research now to attempt to use bacteriophage viruses to kill off stubborn bacterial infections.

Re: This coronavirus in China - PL suspended until 1st June
They might be able to draw inferences from SARS and MERS, though. Well you would think.
