What about this virus? Covid-19

Really don't know what to make of it.
A real threat, scaremongering?

Worrying I think. Especially as I still haven't completely shaken off the coughing virus I've had since 11th December.

Oh Sue sorry to hear you still have it 😕 it was a nasty virus we all had it, but have all recovered. Has the doctor referred you for x ray or anything? Itís gone in a long time for you now x

I assume we will see even more of the Far Eastern visitors wearing face masks now.

I must be honest and think they look weird and the masks are proven to have little or no effect anyhow.

In December I booked a trip to China for October 2020

Just my luck - I hope it all blows over by the time we go...

I got travel insurance out before the virus made headline news but not before the first instance was found, so I hope it will cover us if we cannot travel. I must remember to check the T&C's.

Totally ineffective. We used them in the operating theatres to prevent splashes on us and spittle etc on patient. When I last looked at research their effectiveness was about 30 minutes unless you have a full blown breathing type mask as used in orthopedics.

Interesting that they now say there is some evidence that masks DO offer some protection but not in the conventional way ... I guess if it was me in an effected area I may try anything and looking silly would be worst of my worries

Some are as little as 3 minutes, but it does largely depend on the mask, we looked at this in depth when I worked in IPC.

When I see someone in a mask I assume they have respiratory TB.

found out in far east this summer masks are worn primarily for cultural reasons something about not wanting facial expressions being read, showing others your feelings

also considered polite to wear one if you have a cold
