Coronavirus: UK declares ‘serious and imminent threat’

Coronavirus: UK declares 'serious and imminent threat'

The UK has now declared the coronavirus a “serious and imminent threat to public health”.
A medical centre in England has been temporarily closed after at least one staff member tested positive for the virus on Monday.
The British government has introduced new powers to deal with the outbreak.
Under new measures, people with coronavirus can be forcibly quarantined and will not be free to leave, while scientists in London work on a possible vaccine.
Testing on animals is set to begin, with testing on humans possible in a few months.
For more on this we speak to Dr Richard Dawood, a specialist in travel medicine who joins us live via Skype.

    china appears to be arresting some of its political opponents for being sick and then they die or dissappear ..

  • Naveed Shams says:

    Save Uigur Muslim save holi Quran save Islam solution for China country.

    • JimboParadox says:

      Yes. For a Muslim invasion. That will sort them out. Although I dislike the idea. Chinese make reasonable quality cheap electronics. It’s very hard to find semi-skilled manpower at those cheap prices, especially on mass. Bangladesh and Vietnam can be drafted in, but they don’t have enough people [even combined]. India cannot do it as most of them are still sh-tting on the streets. Can you think of any other countries? The truth is, although it would save Islam in China, it would be a disaster for the rest.

    • Jerry Carnes says:

      Relax. The entire world is downplaying the virus your not alone. Best thing to do is make your own preparations than to rely on the govt to fix anything.

    • DIrck Wuestefeld says:

      Bill gates and his wife funded the creation of the virus and his company owns the patent.

    • DIrck Wuestefeld says:

      It is a US virus. Hate to say it but Russia was telling g the truth about the us being at fault

  • Chronic Yeh says:

    must be missing the point on this quarantine 14 day stuff… what if Joe A becomes infected while in quarantine on day 8 and will not show signs or symptoms until he his left out into the general population…. once in the gp then the damage would be the same as though Joe had never been quarantined…

    • Dave Dirt says:

      If someone else in the group tests positive in the quarantine period, surely it would reset the 14 days?

    • foundthecreek damrights says:

      @Dave Dirt yup that why that cruise ship will be there forever lol

    • JimboParadox says:

      But they can still test Joe to see if he has the virus, surely before releasing him into the general population. He may not show symptoms but it can still be confirmed whether or not he has the virus. Also it’s about _probability_ not certainty. Quarantine decreases the _likelihood_ of it transmitting in a short period of time. But it may not be possible to eliminate completely.

  • Mark Heywood says:

    Masks now ! and not later like everyone else it’s a precaution at the least .

    • Neil Mo says:

      Mark Heywood good luck finding one 😉

    • Helen Pauls says:

    • Aaron URIAH YASHARAHLA says:

      Humans are not considerate.

    A robust response without too much sensitivity about the rights of the individual might just save millions of lives.

    • Wendy Adams says:

      Thomas Praytell me Thomas, now that the government are forcibly removing people from their homes, because they are suspected of having the coronavirus, will now not report any suspicions, to the 111 service, they may have that the cold they are suffering is this virus.

      I certainly won’t, unless I have to, along with many others!

I mean basically endless entertainment, shopping online, tasks/chores online [of any variety], deliveries next day or same day, video-conferencing to cover any meetings… you basically can do EVERYTHING [including most forms of non-manual service work like auto-mechanics and nurses] online.

      A business man would risk the first quarter of business with a quarantine. Then to risk the whole of the financial year with a pandemic.

    (2) And The implementation is,… after ones died sentenced by corona, the nose of the death body should be closed used cotton lubed barus lime, other than Muslim is bathed, the body need to be wrapped with a wrap made by cloth instead of plastic that has been greased lime barus (desinfectan). The cloth wrap will absorb and bind fluid liquids as well virus or amoeba or bacteria that are still possible out of the corona victim body and be killed by lime barus (desinfectan).
    The death body then buried to the deep ground. Dig in at least as deep as muslim graves generally. As deep as possible for libel or illness or virus or bacteria embedded also in the ground is not out anymore for dissemination. Burial without crate means that the cloth wrap will be in the direct contact with the soil so that the virus or bacteria amoeba that still persist from the lime barus will be death by soil acid and by due to the absence of the oxygen. To get quickly digging use a beko to make, if credential, a massive and large grave. Planting and solid soil solids. Make a hospital building for 1000 bed patiens took only 4 days, then make mass graves for 1000 death body should be much easier. After being buried, the slander or virus or amoeba or bacteria accompanying mayit or death body no more infect the air and were buried with him.
    In the Las word, muslim will say, Wa La Taftinna Ba’da Hum.
    O Allah do not leave for us the Fitnah, (virus. bacteria, and other bad thing), after his death departure.
