Coronavirus seems to be pretty big talk around the world.  This can be our slice.

Lots of things will probably be shut down soon. Also, this is cool.

They cancelled E3 this year because of it. =[

 

I'm kinda more interested in those games now that there won't be an audience. I wonder if it's going to be as weird as it seems.

I think they're going a little overboard with it. From all the people stocking on TP and hand sanitizer to the recently announced suspension of the current NBA season, I think it's being over blown. Yes it's a contagious disease, but you're more likely to die from the flu than coronavirus.

Oh Rudy Gobert. Joking about touching the mics and coronavirus, catches it anyway. Now the whole season is suspended.

No matter what anyone else says, I'm still blaming China for this. For the NBA, for Tom Hanks, for me not being to find toilet paper at the store, everything.

I just read it can survive in the air for three hours and on surfaces for 3 days :panic:

I can't even buy a pepsi for fear of contamination :panic:

I'll have to clean everything with bleach wipes. Even food :panic:

Seen this a month or so ago from China when it was first reported and that China would build a bunch of hospital's just for this epidemic

I agree, it came from a lab there, it was transmitted by Chinese tourists, to somehow not think China is to blame is foolhardy.

I heard it's not an airborne virus like measles/smallpox

So as long as you're not getting sneezed on or something, you shouldn't catch it.

I've been using this website if I want to get my data itch scratched. I know there are likely hundreds like this but this was the cleanest and easiest to follow for me. It shows new cases, recovery statistics and deaths.

 

If everybody thought the same, this virus wouldn't be nowhere near as bad as it is. Unfortunately, basic hygiene (especially hand washing) has obviously fallen to the wayside, which just reinforces my belief that handshakes should have been outlawed in the 1950s. Every hand you've ever touched has had a dick in it at some point. Keep your hands clean, be mindful of your symptoms and don't panic buy like you're preparing for doomsday. You're not going to run out of toilet paper. If you do and you absolutely can't find anything, just use your hand and have a shower. Who's going to know? You're not going to leave the house anyway. It'll be our little secret.

Obviously the highlight of any earth-moving event is the influx of news and memes that are born from it. Here is my favourite - a kid from Leeds was sent home from school for selling hand sanitiser. Say what you want, but this child is going places. It isn't his massive balls that make this story great though...

Finally being an introvert pays off. But honestly f*ck 2020 and f*ck this decade. Here I was thinking we're heading for a new start.

I vote everyone be issued with a flamethrower, one of those natty two-tank backpack affairs that featured heavily in the Return To Castle Wolfenstein series.

 

Walking around the neighbourhood, torching anyone who might be a threat of contagion.  Shoolchildren first.  They're a filthy reservoir of germs, huddled together in classrooms, clambering all over each other in the playground.  And then there's old people.  Not much of a threat in themselves but since they're mostly on their way out anyway and are more susceptible to the virus. May as well torch 'em.

 

If anyone gets stuck for potential flambees they can always refer to the "Types of people you can't stand" thread for inspiration.

In Australia, a staff member of the McLaren F1 team has been diagnosed with the disease. Whole team withdrew from the upcoming Grand Prix. https://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/mclaren-withdraws-from-australian-gp/4742628/

 

They should just cancel the whole season like other sports are doing.

And no one sings me lullabies, and no one makes me close my eyes.

So I throw the windows wide, and call to you across the sky.

Would be way better if this were in D&D, as here it turns into spammy bullsh*t.

Well, there have been 2 or so cases in the hospitals in the area I'm at (I'm a med student). Final year students in the year above have had their finals brought forward to a month early, and we *might* be made to stay at home for a few months (the idea has been brought up but nothing from it yet). Not really sure how to feel if that plan goes ahead, I was hoping to spend more time in the operating theatres and A&E to practice sutures and time in the surgical wards for taking Hx and Ex. Our electives are also optional, but I intend on doing it, as long as this doesn't get too out of hand.

 

The shops in my hometown have run out of most essentials, it's ridiculous. Even perishable food items being horded out by small couples...

 

Not much of a change for me, I always wash my hands and clean my stethoscope every chance I get (before and after patient contact, entering and leaving a ward etc. Half of my class are staying at home for their projects to avoid it all

 

The government even considered bringing back retired NHS staff, and most of them were like "f*ck no". Don't blame them really. 

 

Well, if I'm made to stay at home, at least the Yakuza collection came out, so I can finally play Yakuza 5...
