    President Trump slammed Democrats, saying that their criticism of his administration’s handling of the outbreak is 'their new hoax.'

    No, he did not say coronavirus was a hoax. He said the Democrat's criticism of his handling of it was a hoax, and he explained how much his Administration had done to keep the US safe.

    The Left's hatred of Donald Trump is becoming very dangerous. This deadly virus isn't something to use as another get-Trump political weapon.

    He shouldn't be using the word hoax in the first place. It's dangerous and irresponsible. It's ok though, he's got Mike Pence on the case - a man who doesn't believe in science apparently.

    What Trump shouldn't be doing is trying to claim some sort of glory in the US having relatively few cases this far and claiming it's because of measures he's put in place. It's crass and demonstrably not true

    They'd had no cases in the US until the stable genius shipped back all the infected people instead of leaving them in quarantine on the cruise ship

    I do wish people would stop saying "it's just like the flu" because it's not. Yes, some of the symptoms are similar but:

    1) Something like 20% of the people who contract this have to be hospitalised, which is quite the concern - especially in the UK as we don't have the resources to deal with that

    2) Flu kills about 0.1% of people who contract it, this kills 1-2%. So between 10 and 20 times more deadly

    3) We have no vaccine for this and relatively little knowledge of it at this stage. Any vaccine will take at least 18 months to publicly release

    4) Influenza viruses and coronaviruses are not even of the same family. Food poisoning and norovirus will both make you violently sick, they aren't the same thing though are they

    5) It's spreading rapidly across the world and we have no real idea on how to contain it (well, we can shut down entire cities and weld people's front doors shut as they have done in China, but I don't see that being a goer in Western Europe)

    6) That kind of thinking makes everyone stupidly complacent which is incredibly dangerous in this situation

    7) Doctors' advice if you do contract it will be to self-isolate for two weeks and take other precautions. People will ignore this and carry on. In what other circumstance would you get ill, seek a doctor's advice and then immediately totally ignore him?

    Will you die if you get it, probably not unless you're already ill and/or really old. Not really the point though.

    As for Dim Don, he just doesn't understand anything. Safer for everyone if he gets locked away in a room on his own forever, whether he has coronavirus or not.

    One person was released from quarantine in San Antonio last week, then tested positive after spending Saturday in a very busy shopping centre. Locals are starting to worry a bit.

    Criticism of trump is always justified. He is a horrible person and not fit to be President.

    And that's the crux of the matter isn't it? Some cunt deciding he needs to absolutely be in the office then passes it on to a colleague who goes home and passes it on to his newborn, or grandmother, or sick family member who can't deal with it.

    Sounds like the contingency plan is for games to be played behind closed doors, rather than being cancelled.

    If anyone even tried that at our place they'd be sent home immediately. Ive got three people in self quarantine right now. One went to Tokyo, one to Vietnam, and one to Italy. They were all told not to return to work when they got back.

    The amount of manky bastards who don't wash their hands when coming out of the toilets at Molineux. Just take 20 seconds out of your busy schedule, mate.

    My favourite comment on this was from someone a friend of mine retweeted essentially asking why we need to wash our hands when coronovirus is a respiratory virus.

    Will all be wearing face masks (even though they don't work) & just wave at each other from a distance.
    This year we will mainly be conquering Europe

    2% is a fuck tonne of people where we're talking about a mortality rate. Let us not forget that the recent TV show The Leftovers was based on 2% of the population disappearing.

    Also, when in the US it costs $3k to get tested for Coronavirus, it's going to have a field day over there.

    Reading today that anything from 30% to 60% of the population are likely to contract it. Granted the vast majority will suffer no symptoms or very few, but that is a lot of people. And if it's killing 2% of them...

    Even if those numbers are vastly overstated (they came from an ICU doctor interviewed in the Guardian), it's still pretty scary stuff.

    Now category 4 on the NHS scale, as high as you can go.

    Just the flu though.

    @mods since this is unlikely to go away perhaps we could change the title of this thread to ‘coronavirus’ and we can then use it to chronicle the end of society as we know it?
