More chance of us oldies dying from the flu. It could be like the day after Diana died, the SFA were guilt-tripped into cancelling games when 99% of Scotland couldn't give a flying feck about her. Do we trust the SFA/SPFL to get anything right ?  Naw, we don't.

They were guilt tripped into that by Huns kike McCoist and Goram with their faux grief.

The greatest threat to humanity is humanity itself.

Apathy and acceptance at what humanity or a section of greedy power hungry arseholes are doing, is the threat.

Evil only succeeds when good people do nothing.

Keep hearing this yes you are more likely to die from flu, but this is on top of the normal flu deaths, and cancer which was mentioned earlier in the thread.

These illnesses will continue, with the addition of this virus.

Having said that I am happy to take my chances, and we should carry on normal activities, but be more vigilant. 

Just had an email at work advising on hand washing procedures and when to wash, quite frankly if you were not doing this already, you deserve a dose of something.

A sign in the bogs to remind people to wash their hands would be a good idea.

WHO have said that the fatality rate for this will be less than 99%.

I'll take my chances.

Indeed.

Sadly the threat of coronavirus reinforced by a stiffly worded e-mail from their employer is unlikely to change the habits of a lifetime.

Especially when most of said employers will still pressure people to come to work while ill.

I mean, technically true, but I'm not sure you've phrased that quite as intended!

Remember it well. Shops in Aberdeen opened as soon as the funeral ended on the Saturday. Pittodrie could've been the same 

Absolutely no need for it to be moved to the Sunday, game could've went ahead as planned on the Saturday. 

Mass hysteria by grief junkies.

If your self employed and self isolate, will you get sick pay, no chance, so there is a massive risk of carriers spreading infection.

Scotland were playing Belarus day of the funeral until the Huns went all staunch and threw their sashes out the pram.

Indeed. I remember thinking "WTF" at the time. Mass grief hysteria from people she was unaware of the existence of. Seems to be all the rage these days.

You answered it yourself.

It's likely that somewhere between 25 and 75% of the population will contract the virus. This will depend on a number of factors, including the success of self isolation, sanitary practices etc. 

Previous modelling on H1N1 predicts that the overall effect on the global economy could be as high as a GDP reduction of 7%, similar to the 2007 financial crisis. 

80% of those affected will have mild symptoms, 20% will require hospital admission and 5% will require ICU. These will mostly be older people with chronic health conditions, 

The strategy in most countries is one of containment and delay to stop health services being overwhelmed. It's not so much a question of stopping people getting the virus per se as it is of slowing the spread. 

If Coronavirus is as bad as seasonal 'flu then it's a major event. At this point in time, it looks as though it will be a lot worse, with a mortality rate of 1% vs. 0.1% for influenza A and a similar reproduction rate.

Spot on.

Didn't want to play on the day of the funeral as they were so grief stricken....

It might not sound it, but this is ridiculously high.

One death for every hundred who contract it, with a "reasonable worst case scenario" of 80% contraction rate, equates to almost half a million deaths by my calculation.

Thank fk the SFA cancelled the games.

The NHS are preparing for this to make much more of an impact than seasonal flu. Make of that what you will.

Pretty much what North Korea done. Shot the first person to contract it!

If China was still as much a closed book it was 40years ago we wouldn't have heard of this either.   A massive accident would've befallen wuhan city  with no survisors
