Today's update:

So we have seen our first death here now and the number of cases are now up to 116 which includes a child catching it at Alder Hey childrens hospital.

I can't see this virus going away anytime soon!

My mum's 90, and has a hospital appointment next Friday. Might be wise for her to postpone it.

Trouble is, she thinks she's invincible.

If it's only for something routine and can be delayed then I wouldn't let her go mate.

It's just not worth the risk.

Quite agree KP. It's a routine appointment, and the wise move is to stay at home.

There are all sorts of daft stuff on Amazon relating to Coronavirus, including special kits to see if your dog or cat has contracted it.

164 cases now in the UK with 2 deaths.

Has anyone changed their mind on this that it was just the flu like Natasha seems to think? I'm curious.

People are fucking stupid. They are far more likely to get "regular" flu which can kill 20,000 people in the UK a year.

Life is short, worrying about an illness that is likely no worse than a cold is fucking bonkers.

This country wouldn't last a week if we were at war or faced a natural disaster.

How many people catch flu in the UK every year? Approx 8% of the population so the fatality rate is low. If they are likely to get "regular flu" then they are just as likely to get this - except more will die. There is a vaccine for flu but not for Covid.  Perhaps we should be nipping it in the bud if we can because if it gets to pandemic stage like swine flu which killed over half a million people the country will close down.

Dean Holdsworth resigned from Bascinet Ltd last month. Does that mean he's severed connections with Clive Richardson and Serie D side Palermo?

Whatever but my advice is don't shake hands with him.

For what it is worth I was talking to a friend of mine the other day who heads up a department at the local hospital, and asked him how things were in view of the virus, to which he said it simply wasn't an issue as they view it less dangerous than a normal flu epidemic.

I also by chance spoke to a nurse at the same hospital the same day who told me exactly the same.

Hardly scientific research on my part but if management and frontline staff at my local hospital don't seem to be at all bothered about it - and they are the ones who will be dealing with it - then I too see no reason to be worried about it either

Peter Duffy
@peter__duffy





Russell lost his nursing career about 15 years ago for complaining about standards of care at Morecambe Bay Hospitals and Peter, a surgeon, lost his career for doing the same at the same hospital years later.



Russell's issue was with geriatric care with some 'nurses' regarding elderly patients as not worth nursing (or worse).

My point was more a generalised one in that this virus seems to be no worse than flu.

Of course vulnerable people catching flu, coronavirus or anything else may well be fatal to them but I was only trying to put into perspective the 'fear' of this virus actually is.

It seems to me that what the medical world is really saying to us is that until they come up with a vaccine to combat it as per a flu jab for winter sort of thing as they do now, that we do our best to 'slow' the spread of it around the population as a whole, to enable that to happen and thus give them the time to come up with the means to be able to help/save those of us who maybe/are more at risk due to our age/health.

I'm not trying to make light of things (and fwiw I actually know someone who self-isolated after returning from holiday abroad) but just trying to say this isn't quite the Armageddon that some may think it is as a whole (such as the toilet roll hoarders!) but clearly it is of a worry and concern to those of us who are particularly at risk of catching it prior to a vaccine being readily available to combat it.

Sorry if you thought I was being flippant or uncaring or something?

I never thought that Sluffy. I was just making the point that, although the NHS does a brilliant job, not everyone who works in it is a Florence Nightingale and some folk are more at risk than others.

Joan was from Farnworth but retired to live in Bare. Widowed, she spent the last few weeks of her life in the same part of the same hospital that Russell complained about, with 100% justification.

Yes indeed, sadly that is true.

I've been watching Fraud Squad - The Hunt on BBC iplayer showing exactly that.

I'm posting this as it contains information from a hospital authority in China who has been working at the sharp end where the virus originated.

 It covers aspects that our government has not so far notified us of.

 We found it helpful. I hope you will too.

Last evening dining out with friends, one of their uncles, who's graduated with a master's degree and who worked in Shenzhen Hospital (Guangdong Province, China) sent him the following notes on Coronavirus for guidance:
1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold
2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose.
3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates the Sun.
4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.
5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours - so if you come into contact with any metal surface - wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap.
6. On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will kill it.
7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice.
8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but - a lot can happen during that time - you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on.
9. You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice.
10. Can't emphasise enough - drink plenty of water!
THE SYMPTOMS
1. It will first infect the throat, so you'll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days
2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further.
3. With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing.
4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you're drowning. It's imperative you then seek immediate attention.
