Influenza evolved from a disease of water birds, and is transmitted through the air in moisture droplets, or by contact with contaminated surfaces.

I've just invested in some N95 particulate respirator masks and rubber disposable gloves. Could be some easy money to be made here...

That's if you can find them. The Chinese probably make most of them. I agree that you may make some good money as people strip the shelves.

Funnilyenough I just spoke to a trader and he says he lives in the middle of nowhere and is going to buy a load of dried food etc and not go out for a while Lol

Corona Virus is also thought to have originated in birds, and subsequently passed to mammals by infecting bats.

'The Hot Zone', by Richard Preston, about Ebola (and a near outbreak from a Washington DC facilty) (non-fiction) is a good if worrying read with some parallels to the current situation.

Its just a relatively mild flu like virus. The people who died were elderly with other underlying conditions. Its going to be like SARS, a relatively brief panic over not very much

Indeed, an excellent if somewhat terrifying, read.Good series based on it not long ago too. I guess the real difference is that if Ebola ever properly broke out of Africa it would probably end the human race, whereas coronavirus will just give most people a sore throat and a runny nose...

Do you know his medical history? 1,462 people aged between 15 and 64 died in the UK from flu in 2017/18. How come that isnt a screaming headline every day?

Take it easy mate. I’m not a doctor and don’t know about flu deaths and symptoms but it’s clear that your statement that the people who have died are elderly with underlying symptoms is not true in all cases

 

The doctor who died may or may not have had underlying issues but he certainly wasn’t elderly

One example doesn’t make a probability.
