If Italy is in shut down .....how is it that reporters from all over the world can suddenly arrive there to report ?
I'm just hope that the Vegan bandwagon doesn't try ,by some means, to link it to livestock however tenuously just to cause doubt and mischief !

Same way there was a photographer, think it was a chap from The Sun, on the moon ready to capture the moment Neil Armstrong took the first step for mankind

If anybody was serious about stopping the spread of this disease then air passenger travel would have been suspended about 2 months ago.
But no, they are prepared to gamble with the lives of millions rather than upset the aviation and tourism business. Screening at airports for this disease is wholly inadequate and a joke. But what else would you expect.

Get real folks , if we want to stop people dying we should ban cars .
The death rate for this is no worse than Influenza , why is everyone getting so upset, every year 8,000 die in the UK from flu.

Exactly every year 1500-2000 people die of Motor Neuton Disease in the UK which after 70+ yrs has no treatments or cure and a life expectancy of 3yrs yet everyone is running round like headless chickens over this.

I gather from a couple of news reports that so far it would appear Vegans and Vegetarians are less likely to contract the virus ad appear to have a greater resistance to it.

The World Health Organisation stats are saying death is 10% and a further 20% will have serious medical issues but it's any ones guess. China wouldn't be shutting factories down for fun that's for sure.
I think you will find these figures are of hospitalised cases which are always going to be the worse cases, many people will have had the disease and been unaware, like the guy who came back from Singapore.
That is why it is such a successful disease.
I also believe it is way past stopping

Folk have to be everywhere just for the hell of it.
They call a Cat Nosey but human kind are by far the worse offender,
Just incase there missing anything.

Ive said it before cut half the amount of Planes & get rid of a lot of Air Pollution
but that never gets a mention.

If every single Diesel Engine was moved over to Adblu after treatment why would you then stop producing them?
The Gases out there Exhausts are cleaner than what go's in the Air Intakes so iam told. ????
