    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    See, this is the thing. Very very few people are being tested, so it's futile trying to work out a mortality percentage. It's likely that there are tens of thousands worldwide who have/had a mild version of the virus, but these are unreported. We are only hearing about confirmed cases and deaths, so obviously the mortality rate appears higher at the moment.

    Where's he fled to? Antarctica?

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    This is second-hand and lacking in detail, but the brother of one of my friends thinks that Covid 19 will be a lot more infectious and a lot less dangerous than is currently thought. Don't know what he's basing that on, but he is a doctor who has worked with Médécins Sans Frontieres including going to Africa to work on Ebola when it was at its height, so his opinions carry some weight with me.
  6. Just had a narrow escape. Checking medicine drawer for thermometer, I found two! Popped one in my mouth to make sure it was still working. Turned the other one over and saw, inscribed in marker pen, the word DOG.

    I thought you were talking about people who die from it. Like some terminally ill people get a little remission before declining and dying.

    People get better before they get worse? I haven't read/heard that anywhere. What's your source?

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    It will undoubtedly get worse before it gets better. But I think the percentage of deaths is probably much lower than it seems as there must be many people who are either asymptomatic or only mildly affected, and are therefore not included in the stats. I'm not sure how they can arrive at a figure here anyway, now they are telling people just to stay home if they have any symptoms and not to ring 111.

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    It will, but until there's a vaccine nothing is going to stop it spreading. And statistics show that the vast majority of people survive it. It's no good pointing the finger at anyone, nobody is to blame for this virus. Conspiracy theories aside.

    How's she going to eat through that mask?

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    With regard to hygiene, I've always thought it healthier to have some exposure to dirt and germs as it keeps the immune system ticking over. As my grandmother used to say, "You have to eat a peck of dirt before you die". Although that could be interpreted as it would take that amount of dirt to kill you. Still, the old girl lived to be 100, so she obviously did something right.

    I went into a chemists today and asked, "What's good for killing the Coronavirus?" She said, "Ammonia cleaner". I said, "I'm sorry, I thought you were the pharmacist".

    Maximum coronavirus annoyance points ..... Friends of mine flew to Malta this morning for a week's holiday. Or so they thought. While they were airborne it was announced that all non-residents arriving on Malta would have to go into quarantine for 14 days. So they had to return on the same plane - never even left the airport!

    Room Lovely, Look You.

    One of my ankle wellies sprang a leak. The right foot. They have had a good deal of wear, so no complaints. Same with the previous pair - one eventually developed a split, but I kept the other one. Now invariably when this happens, the two good boots are for the same foot, but on this occasion the survivor was ... the right one

    I was thinking Graham Bonnet (ex Rainbow) but can only think of Night Games which doesn't seem to fit the Boris reference. But damn, let's play it anyway.

    Name Shame?

    He can change nihil to nil and keep all the spaces, like I suggested. It means the same thing.

    You've probably exceeded the character limit. Try 'De Mortuis Nil Nisi Bonum' . I think it looks better with capitalised words, btw.
