    Jesus.

    The numbers coming out of New York are terrifying. Over 8000 hospitalised, over 2000 in intensive care.

    The whole of the UK has 18,159 active cases, of which 163 are regarded as serious/critical.

    So......
    Did China spread this thing to the rest of the world in order to **** everyone's economy and then cash in later?

    This theory is gaining a little traction.

    One for Woody?

    Something that's been niggling away at me since reading finglas's post about Ireland send out a flight to get medical supplies from ... China?

    Whether or not the Chinese have done this deliberately they have at the very least been reckless

    The rest of the world needs a rethink about the relationship with the Chinese regime

    Forget Putin and his sabre rattling, the Chinese have been the main threat to world stability for years now and I for one don't trust them not to be developing virus based weapons. Potentially vastly more damaging than a nuclear strike

    No. Countries were able to do their own sourcing on top of that. If Ireland can get it done their way then good luck to them. Our way doesn’t seem to be getting us very far quickly.

    I dare say that we are being charged a higher price per unit compared to normal times...

    I think the stats from everywhere are all bollocksed up Ninesy.
    Can’t imagine that it was started deliberately but am certain that they will exploit it any way they can.

    It did irk me that it jumped to Europe and the West rather quickly whilst the host nation remained relatively unscathed.

    Meanwhile, some thirteen thousand miles from Wuhan, Mrs Nines mate was pulled over by the police this afternoon. When asked why she was out driving in the current climate, she replied taking the dog for a walk. They reliably informed her that this isn't allowed and that she had to return home.

    That doesn't make any sense. Replace what you said with the UK.
