Coronavirus

Postby Australian Dawn » Thu Mar 12, 2020 9:33 am

I'm getting a bit worried about Coronavirus. The elderly are particularly at risk so I imagine it's going to hit the hobby hard.
Also I have elderly relatives. :scared:
With all the talk as if it's spread is inevitable, and how hard it is on oldies, it feels like a death sentence has been passed on my family, and all the politicians seem to care about is the economy!

What do you guys think? How bad is this going to get?
Was enough done early enough to stop this?

(apologies if there is already a thread on this, I couldn't find it amongst all the spam!)

Dawn mate .
You know that S.S Titanic ?

I'd stay off it If I was you .

Keep a good stock of the essentials in the house but don't hoard . Avoid crowds and close contact. Practice good hygiene . That's about all you can do .

And don't blame politicians for all this . If the economy goes to fuck we're all in the shit .

Good advice.

People are really freaking out over toilet paper, it's crazy. Why it's toilet paper people have fixated on I don't know.
A friend who was shopping with us was a long time returning from putting some toilet paper we'd bought in the car when I joked he might have been mugged for it, and I was almost right! A desperate family had managed to guilt him into giving them our hard won 2 ply!

The world's gone nuts!

The ancient Romans used to use a sponge on a stick soaked in vinegar .

you could probably rig up something similar with a washing-up brush if that helps :) .

If there are going to be real shortages , it will be for basic medication . Paracetamol , diarrhoea tablets . antiseptics .

Most of this stuff comes from China , and they are having a few problems at the moment so I hear .

I was in the supermarket this morning watching a woman pick up and inspect practically every sandwich pack on the shelf . Great way to spread a virus .

Mine have had an antiseptic wipe before I open them .

People need educating on this simple stuff , and it's just not happening .

Anyone antiseptic wiped their phone lately ?
