Standard major incident planning.

I can’t recall drive-thru testing centres being set-up for previous major incidents.

Probably more due to improvement in diagnostic test, i.e. a swab is sufficient rather than a blood sample

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

Exactly! Seasonal flu has an average mortality rate of around 0.1% compared to 1% for Covid-19 and it is much more infectious.

Everything the Government is doing now is just aimed at slowing down the spread so the NHS is not overwhelmed. But your estimate of 0.5 million deaths attributable to Covid-19 is probably reasonable.

The other thing to bear in mind is that seasonal flu is predictable and infection usually dies back in April. Covid-19 is completely new and nobody knows what it will do.

It's not as if the planet can't stand to lose a few million, particularly old duffers like me.

And me. But the inconvenience of having to get time of for funerals and stuff will be a real drag on the economy.

Don't worry about that, Boris now has something to blame the downturn after brexit on.

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

There’s a large chunk of the population who don’t think the government or Brexit has any shortcomings. 

A large chunk of the population support Celtic and Rangers but that doesn’t mean it will ever be acceptable to the rest of us.

Chief Medical Officer was saying 50-80% of folk will get it.  Apparently 1/3 of people who get it, don’t show symptoms or get ill - so you might have had it already..

Two men in Iran who defied coronavirus health warnings could be jailed and flogged after videos circulated of them licking holy shrines.

In one of the videos, viewed more than half a million times, a man is seen at the Masumeh shrine in Qom, saying, "I'm not scared of coronavirus", before licking and kissing the gates.

So no more kissing the squirrels then.

if he insists on shaking hands with everyone he might: 

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/boris-johnson-vows-coronavirus-not-21622835

Boris Johnson has insisted the coronavirus threat would not stop him greeting people with a handshake.

The Prime Minister even said he had shaken the hands of everyone at a hospital where infected patients were being treated.

He was speaking at the unveiling of the  UK's battle plan to treat the virus.

This included a warning that as many as one in five employees could be off work at the peak of the outbreak.

France recommended last week that people do not shake hands to prevent the spread of the virus, while Switzerland has said its residents should consider dropping the everyday greeting of kissing each other on the cheek.

Mr Johnson however, exhibited no such caution.

"I'm shaking hands," Mr Johnson said when asked how he planned to handle visiting dignitaries.

"I was at a hospital the other night where I think a few there were actually coronavirus patients and I shook hands with everybody, you'll be pleased to know, and I continue to shake hands.

Handshakes before games been banned now. 

Handshakes banned, but every player (and manager) will be spitting all over the pitch and trackside for the other players to slide into!?
