China had shut its airports, but countries fly in and take their people out, they should have stayed in China for the two weeks or whatever, why spread it around the world?
In case you don't know the World is coming to an end, the bush fires in Australia and then the floods, Earthquakes in other parts of the World, volcanoes going off, now we have the virus, look out for the four blokes on horse's or should that be for Apes on horse's !

But it wouldn't be two weeks staying in China, they would have to stay until two weeks after the last known case in their area.

From the current figures, only a very small proportion of the local populations have the disease. The estimates are that in Wuhan it will top out at 0.13%, it is currently at 0.03%

Then there is the compartmentalism dilemma. If you are in a location where the disease is known to exist, would you stay there which would increase your chances of getting the disease or would you depart which would decrease your chances of getting the disease?

Apparently we are getting a visit from the health minister to thank Wirral for its help.

the villages of Eyam in 1665 showed how to contain the plague and stop it spreading throughout Derbyshire. I assume digging deeper by your post regarding compartmentalism dilemma you would have left the village.

You've put me on the spot granny, I can't remember whether I heard it on the radio the TV or read it on line, Angela Eagle has asked for a reason why our local MPs had to find out the details on the involvement of Wirral from the media instead of from the department of health, apparently this area was earmarked a long time ago for other reasons, who knows, with another plane load leaving China, will there be enough room at APH ?

Really Granny, I expected more from you. Wingywang? Just because foreign places sound different to ours, there's no need to take the mickey. Especially when the UK has towns with names like Twatt and Bell End. Ridiculous. And as for watching your chicken chow mein, do you really think your local Chinese take away would pay to import a chicken all the way from China if they could buy it at half the price from Teco or Asda?

How rude of us to ignore your post, jimbob. Actually it's a very interesting to read about. Here is a link : https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-35064071


It wasn't you was it jimbob ( who asked me out on a date ) ?
