Seems to not be going away, this.i think the government could be doing more, or at least be seen to.

I think there's a good chance if Liverpool lifting the Premier League trophy at Goodison park, in an empty stadium. And no victory parade.

The festivals could be cancelled, too.

The thing is, I'd know immediately if I'd been Tangod (Tangoed? Tangode?) as there's no incubation period. AND it's over with in less than a second. With Corona, we won't be aware of when we're hit, we don't even have a definitive incubation period yet and varying estimates as to how long the effect lasts. Therefore, I'm leaning toward Tango as the preferred option.

At work, we've been instructed by our parent facility to draw up a coronavirus response plan in case we have a lot of staff unavailable. I'll spare the boring details but the worst case scenario was staggering to me.

I'm not sure which part concerns me the most, that they are considering the possibility of lots of staff being sick, or authorities imposing travel restrictions and cutting off certain areas. I think it might be the latter, actually.

Urgh it's only just dawned on me that the panic buying herds will be out now stocking up for the apocalypse. I only want a loaf of bread for next week.

My wife saw an early sign of panic buying at the supermarket last night. Some of the people that live round this way are easily spooked, if the local facebook groups are anything to go by

Chaos(!) in work canteen. No apples! No bread rolls!

Basically nothing without its own natural or artificial packaging is allowed.

So bananas and tangerines are still permitted.

Furthermore, on Sunday I decided to get healthy and give up crisps at work.

It seems I picked the wrong month to stop eating crisps.

Sales of Tupperware will rocket as people switch to packed lunches to protect themselves in canteens.

Forget bitcoin, buy shares in sealable food containers instead.

Ghoulishly looking at the outbreak map has become a daily ritual now. I find very odd that such a massive country as Russia have only declared 3 cases. Especially as a neighbour. Iceland have nearly 8 times that amount, f'instance.

Us too.

Also, apparently Amazon are only doing video interviews for candidates below a certain level.

And, of course, they've shoved the Bond release back.

If you're going to get it you're much better off getting it now than 100,000 cases later.
