Hopefully the Chinese are too preoccupied to start the dilution of the millions of tonnes of radioactive waste into the sea from Yokohama Nuclear power disaster, or that wouldn't be all they were getting. Can't imagine what the poor sods stuck on a ship waiting to be infected are feeling, especially just off Yokohama. What a nightmare! JB

37593 infected
6119 critical
2873 recovered
814 deaths

This morning it was reported that the death toll from this corona virus was 2%, which I'm guessing is the %age of all of the infected population.
Isn't it more like 37% if you look at deaths & recovered, with the potential for a far greater %age if you look at how many are critically ill?
Maybe I'm not looking at the figures correctly.
Have a nice day. JB

The makers of Corona beer are getting pissed off with the bad publicity and are planning on renaming their brand; just like the makers of Polio mints did.

Sorry about listing this factually, trying to keep my own opinions out of it.
Interestingly COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS still not being hailed as a pandemic.
Italy & South Korea being the newer centres of the spread.
They must have re defined the meaning of Pandemic. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pandemic
Works out at killing 9% so far if you read recovery & death rates.
It hasn't even started to mutate yet, or we aren't hearing about that part yet.
It's worth checking here to keep an eye on this situation if you are interested, cases are updated daily. https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
All the best JB

This is one of the most interesting virus to happen for a long time, seems heat does not kill it, so it will not be seasonal, it will be year round, which in turn will allow it to mutate.....The interesting bit is the host species temperature range and the fact that bats operate at a higher temp. than we do, so when our body raises it`s temp. to try and kill it, it fails and kills us.....I love this shit.

Perhaps it will rid the world of the humans that should not be here, the ones who need all kinds of medical shit to survive and those of us who really should be gone..... :yup:
