If anyone gets it, would they be willing to post on here how they are affected, what they feel like, progression etc. Also how they think they caught it.
I think it would help us understand better what to do and best things to do to avoid if possible.
Seeing all this panic about hand gel, why not just try a spot of bleach to wash hands with?

Well that's been shot down by France, they say Ibuprofen aggravates the disease and to use paracetamol.

I see both the NHS and America were suggesting Ibuprofen, it will be interesting to find out why it reacts with CV19.


Try to get some paracetamol ! Sold out everywhere. Pasta is another. Why would anyone want to stockpile pasta ? It's all ludicrous behaviour.

I have my doubts that it originated in the meat market as I read an article the other day (whether we can believe such journalism is also questionable ) with US blaming China and China blaming US.
China says it is an American disease that might have been introduced by members of the United States Army who visited Wuhan in October.
Well, if that is the case, it throws their original theory that it originated in Wuhan wet meat market, out the window .
To actually see the spread of such magnitude in such a short period of time, really does present more questions than answers in my opinion.
If it's about to get so much worse, I wonder what the contingency plans are for the Army and Navy personnel , the cemeteries and to tell people over 70 to self isolate for up to 4 months is even more crazy.
Order online ! Great idea if the 70 plus have computers, and the supermarkets have the available staff to make the deliveries. If that does happen I hope the general public will pull together and help the little old lady down the road who has no one and is too frightened to ask. I also hope that the little old lady isn't ripped off by some con man/woman.

Is this a world wide prep for a nuclear attack ? It makes you bloody wonder !

A letter from a lady in Yemen posted in the last few days, it sort of makes a point :

Message from Sara Ameri ,Yemen: “The citizens of the first world are in panic: they are experiencing something ordinary for us. Can’t you travel? We haven’t travelled either, for five years. You can’t leave the house? It’s raining bombs on us.
Do they stockpile goods in supermarkets? In our war zone, production is paralyzed, imports are very low. Is a terrible virus spreading? We experienced the same with cholera. Are you worried about the children? Welcome to our everyday world. Do you feel cut off as a nation? We have been cut off from 90% of the countries. Losing jobs? So many of us haven’t received a salary in five years. Schools closed? It’s been happening for years. Health system in crisis? That happens with us, no matter what kind of disease you get. Don’t worry, it’s tough at first. Then you get used to it.”

I don't think she is appealing to the over 80's Casper. Unfortunately , I doubt her children know either. If they did, of course they would think it is just the norm. We all have to experience to understand , apparently .

Yes, I saw the post of that guy advertising.. there's always someone ready to make a killing .

Think when this self isolation comes in for over 70s this forum and others are going to become very important and think we’ll all have to try and keep it interesting and alive to give folk abit of a distraction from the horrible situation facing us . So let’s try and get it how it was , entertaining and funny some seriousness but we all in it together eh....

just watched a police drone in Japan or china chase an old lady back to her house.. Pensioners will be dressing up in black and be out creeping in the shadows just to avoid cabin fever.

Just wondering in the next few weeks or more if you've got a car would you be able to drive somewhere but not leave your car or mingle with anyone.
Unfortunately I'm the only one with a car because there were a few things I was thinking of
Ask my daughter if possible to do some shopping if needed and put into bags so I could collect from either her house
(left on doorstep for collection) or car park of the shop.

Derek, I would. You wouldn't even have to get out of the car, she could pop them in the boot. Just make sure you wear gloves in case bags carry this virus. (I'm not sure about that ) and sing Happy Birthday twice when you get home and then wipe your steering wheel .

We don't even know how long this virus lives on things do we ?

I doubt you will be arrested .

I think if you get the virus , that will be different, but plenty of options are beginning to be put forward if that time should arise for someone.

Can anyone else can give Derek more info ?

This would have all been kicked in the butt, if governments took more action back in November last year, as soon as you started bringing people home, you started spreading the virus!
But the great unwashed people of the UK get what they deserve, i feel sorry for the older folk as they are the ones who will pay for it!

So the virus is persistent for a long period of time, yet the government have not given any information on this, this type of information would make people realise the need for hand washing and disinfecting surfaces, we have watched the Chinese spraying ceiling to floor for months so they have known about its persistence to remain on surfaces, yet here we have Boris with his caught smoking in the toilets face on reiterating the same thing, give us the information that will help us understand the virus better.
