interestingly enough i was on holiday abroad in early february and a fellow traveller mentioned
that,i think,the proximity of Saturn and Pluto was happening in january and this fairly rare occurence had often led to catastrophic
events on our planet. so there you go

something could have been done a long time ago.2002-2004 was the sars epidemic also a coronavirus and just as bad as covid 19.they were racing to create a vaccine but the epidemic was contained.after that funding for a vaccine dried up because the large drug companies didnt think there was any money to be made.....thoughts ?

Contagion the BBC4 Pandemic from 2018--still available was very good,mathematically laid out how things would go and seems to me even though this government is at odds with the BBC current virus policy is probably derived from this programme,

UK has been working on a plan for this scenario and worse for over 10 years. Its in place/being enacted.Exactly what it entails is obviously on a need to know basis.only so much you can do and let's not pretend they could have shut everything down earlier or done much differently,they don't know what they are dealing with and no one really knows how the various parts of any plan will work or cope but I am of the belief its not looking too bad in the grand scheme of things. Every death any age a tragedy but we have to suck it up and prob get a lot worse before it gets better, food supply and basic infrastructure holding up, personally a little worried about the forecast cold snap and any other curved balls that arrive, just need to support the NHS to the hilt and the folks at the front line putting others before themselves.

^ '.... personally a little worried about the forecast cold snap'

Wondered similar - breadnbutter - Yet - on the other hand ...

You often hear people say, in the middle of a freeze-up ...'At least it will kill off the bugs' - so which way to lean?

After reading that bugs and germs like warm, moist environments to thrive - makes sense - then the current protracted DRY weather spell (despite  the temperatures being forecast to drop) could be the best case scenario.

Yes it could keep help with the lock down, possability of snow as well. Peeps need to stay in not risk anything even if it appears innocent enough and safe in regards to spreading it could put strain on the NHS and risk going to hospital if getting injured through slips falls, even diy accidents, let alone numpties out sledging.Was more worried about the possibilities of power outages. As for the virus and temp I am a bit lost on that one,read some stuff that suggested warmer humid climates were fairing best! Cooler climates appear to be worst. Humidity factor at cooler temps relative I think unless it's been freezing and all moisture gone, not sure. Throw in the fact that many tropical like places are poor regions, poor gov, poor reporting its difficult to assess. The WHO keep comparing with ebola but after researching it appears ebola is not that contagious just a lot more deadly,apparently when an outbreak initially happens and someone dies the practice of family coming from far and wide and kissing the deceased who were laid out in open coffins for days did not help the situation.                                 Wonder what stoopid things will become apparent in due course  that we did during this pandemic. Was wondering about the cold angle, and for example milk cartons,not going to the shops again myself until this has calmed right down and some foolproof practices  are in place. Saying this virus is much more contagious than sars, tens times more apparently.fck the bread and milk.

Supposedly there are predicted to be 3 pandemics every 100 years. This has been kind of overdue, though not sure how the likes of Ebola and SARS and some of the recent flu outbreaks have been classified.

So it's easy to predict a pandemic when they're as likely to happen as huge volcanic eruptions (VEI 6+).

The self styled "psychic" Sylvia Browne made a "prophecy" about the corona virus, which has been debunked (sort of) by Snopes. If the virus does disappear as quickly as it arrived, as she forecast, a lot of people will be left puzzled.

US scientists resurrect deadly 1918 flu

In a surprise announcement, scientists in the US say they have recreated the influenza virus that killed at least 50 million people in 1918, and they have infected mice with it.

They say the need to understand how flu viruses cause lethal pandemics outweighs any safety risks. But the risks may not be negligible.

By painstakingly piecing together viral fragments from hospital specimens and a victim buried in Alaskan permafrost, Jeff Taubenberger and colleagues at the US Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Rockville, Maryland, have now sequenced all eight coding regions of the 1918 flu virus’s genome. They published the last three – coding for the polymerase complex that allows the virus to replicate – on Wednesday (Nature DOI: 10.1038/nature04230).

Meanwhile, Terrence Tumpey at the US Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta and colleagues used the sequences to rebuild the virus itself, and infect mice with it. They report this week that unlike other flu viruses, 1918 does not need a protein-splitting enzyme from its surroundings to replicate, instead using some hitherto-unknown mechanism. And as in 1918, it rapidly destroys lungs (Science, vol 310, p 77).
