The world is run by a bunch of morons. They're the ones causing mayhem, not the virus.

Please don't listen to literal Nazis in this thread, and instead trust the myriad of experts who explained why this is important. It's not just a flu, unless you compare it to the 1918 one. Does any country really want to tank their own economy, are you out of your mind?
What do you think? Of course some people always profit from a crisis.

Yes. So true. And western media is vile and evil. And social media is only meant to do harm.

One take away I see from the numbers is its appears in relation to the infected, the death rate appears low. another words, the majority of the infected are getting it,suffering thru it and riding it out and recovering. I suspect that the statistics would by and large paint a picture of the usual suspects having a harder time and maybe succumbing to this due to age, general health etc etc
Probably millions of people caught the virus, recovered but since they weren't tested, they're not counted towards the mortality rate which would be probably as high as for the previous corona viruses.

At this stage I think it's a certainty that the tour will be postponed, unfortunately.

Remember the swine flu panic in 2009? Probably not. 60 million Americans infected. 17.000 dead, among them many children. But since Obama was president back then, nonbody cared.

Masks are a complete and utter waste of time for either party. Fact.
We may know this evening what the government’s next steps are. Hang onto your hats...not masks!
Europeans are saying this because they are not able to buy a mask anyway.
A small voice of calm and reason.

I'm a bit stuck!,have a ticket for london and glasgow,don't know if i should book my flight for the london performance now or wait a little longer incase the situation gets worse?!
If you booked up your flight and you had to cancel would you get all of your money back? It is all up in the air at the moment but, you need to organise things as we would have been the same if we were going.

I am surprised that they haven't mentioned this as they recon the virus is going to peak in three months time.

I’ve just talked to my sister in Italy. They are all confined to their apartments. You’re not allowed to go for a walk unless you apply for permission.

Knowing the British mindset, I think there would be absolutely no way the British people would go along with something like that. Heck, I wouldn’t, and I’m a very easy-going person. If I want to go for a walk, I’m gonna go for a walk. People would be out and about as usual.

Keep your distance, avoid crowds. Maybe that will be enough.

I’m in Madrid and I’m convinced of not moving from home, anyway the virus is strong and you can have it just by touching an infected surface. Once you’ve got it the problem is that if you’re not lucky enough to have a mild infection, there’s no room at the hospitals. It’s a nightmare that starts just the moment you wake up every morning.

This mindset is part of the problem. You are endangering others by doing this, because you could be an asymptomatic carrier.

I know it pretty well because I'm Spanish and I'm working in a hospital.

I'm sure PSB is trying to guess how much it's going to last the virus without control before taking a decision (even though it doesn't depend on them). On the first concerts, many people could cancel their tickets.
