    Back to the virus. Seems its making the rounds everywhere now.
    The virus is getting around but it looks like it doesn't pass as easily as flu. It looks like prolonged exposure to contagious people is necessary. The death rate is still holding at around 2%.

      Another fresh case in Melbourne this afternoon. All possible safety precautions are being taken but there's always bound to be the odd case that slips through the net, which is the concern.

      Also, well done How.

      Cheers,
      Adam.

        There's a lot that is difficult to understand. One of the strangest things is the almost complete disappearance of new cases in mainland China outside Hubei province - the rate of new cases there is now down to about 1% of what it was at its peak of nearly 900 a day three weeks ago.

          Us experts in the pub, me mainly, reckon that the apocalypse will not be caused by nuclear war, asteroids etc but a deadly form of flu virus. The only ones to survive will people who have built up an immunity to everything by eating scrapple.

            Good observation, Dr. String....and probably the only way to save our bipedal butts.

              A bleak future indeed.

                Or jellied eels.

                  Its getting serious in Northern Italy now with IIRC 5 deaths. But more worrying is they haven't identified the carrier yet.

                      Jellied eels are generally defensive...scrapple, on the other hand, should probably be classified as a Weapon of Mass Destruction...

                        Possibly even more deadly than surstromming.

                          I was considering buying a tin of that to send off to my former office (I know there's buggers there daft enough to open it!) but reconsidered when I looked at the price...when you add the considerable postage it's a costly joke...Don't know though...maybe Howie would like some...

                            I'm sure he'd be thrilled and delighted. Also, I hear he's cooking the pancakes this year so just send the package to "The Tosser, Eagleville" and I'm certain it will reach him.

                              Here is a clip from the site I linked in my first post. ( https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ ) This is up to date information. Statistics drive me crazy! General media sources are claiming around 2% mortality but surely it makes more sense to get the death rate from the resolved cases, not the masses of people currently infected? If we do this there is a 19% death rate according to this site. COVID-19 has 80% of the SARS genome and it looks like there is a similar mortality rate.
