Sorry, but what has that got to do with shutting borders like cowards?
But you would keep them open and allow the virus to spread elsewhere and also return once it gets under control.March 24, 2020 at 8:55 pm #1836798
Make no mistake Bingo, this virus is very serious and will kill many more thousands upon thousands of people everywhere. Closing all borders to reduce the spread of it makes perfect sense to me under these extenuating circumstances. Forget Johnson and Trump. They are also-rans in this race against time. All forward thinking countries are already 2 furlongs ahead of those two backward donkeys!
Apparently the virus has already spread to parts of Africa, so they will have to do the same as us, and that means self isolate and inevitably close their borders until this virulent virus is brought under control.
Sit tight, keep your distance and regularly scrub your hands.
It’ll all eventually blow over and the pubs will open again…

What’s all this stuff regarding 5G? Switching 5G on is doing the damage. Apparently the reason the Chinese death toll has suddenly stopped is because they’ve turned 5G off….March 25, 2020 at 1:19 pm #1836908
Credit to Pep no matter what he earns donating 1m Euros to the fight against Coronavirus is a lot of money and Messi has done the same.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Messi’s generous donation will be split between Barcelona’s University hospital and another medical centre in his native Argentina.
This came just hours after the star forward’s former Barca boss Guardiola offered a similar amount to the Barcelona-based Angel Soler Daniel Foundation, which is linked to the Official College of Doctors of Barcelona.
The money from both football stars will be used to buy essential health equipment for the battle against the killer virus.
Good on Federer too!
“Tennis legend Federer has played his part in trying to help those affected by offering a large financial sum in hope of helping those worse off than him.
“These are challenging times for everyone and nobody should be left behind,” Federer wrote on Instagram.

Lenny, the world has been waiting for something like this to happen for a long time now, instead of saving people a lot of governments have decided to tighten their grip on the people… They use fear to get what they want… This could all have gone a very different path if the powers that be wanted anything else than a dictatorship but that decision got taken a few years back.March 25, 2020 at 6:59 pm #1836968
MUFC – that has to be a hoax mate. Can’t see how 5G can have anything to do with it. Sounds like a Twitter rumour.March 25, 2020 at 8:17 pm #1836977
Good news in UK. Mass home test kits that will tell you in 15 minutes if you have it or have had it could be a week or two away. Amazon will deliver kits and chemists will sell them. Crucial to coming out of lockdown.March 25, 2020 at 9:57 pm #1836995
Bingo. Governments all over the world of different political persuasions have had no choice but to react accordingly and enforce tough sensible measures in various degrees to reduce and hopefully eradicate this virulent killing virus.
Surely you are you not saying that this fight against this very nasty global epidemic is a hoax! Are you? I honestly can’t see why you think “the world has been waiting for something like this to happen for a long time now”. It’s preposterous!
Call me old fashioned, but I like to think that no one is better off dead!
I really don’t get your logic on this at all mate, but do feel free to explain…

At least my local Morrisions has bread to buy. Only thing still hard to get anywhere is hand sanitisers. Loads of shops in my area have been closed down. A pound shop was closed down for selling hand sanitisers for £5 each.March 26, 2020 at 11:33 am #1837083

Lenny don’t be daft, we have had about 10 years to prepare for this, your politician and media have been filling you with fear and closing down borders during that time. This could all have been handled way better but that would mean a horde of billionaires would not have gotten richer!March 26, 2020 at 6:45 pm #1837154
Bingo, if only we were closing our borders in the UK.
We haven’t and we’re still letting people fly in from all over the world including New York which is a City suffering badly currently.
I would totally support closing our borders currently.March 26, 2020 at 7:47 pm #1837174
28 year old dude who had it speaks about having the virus. This guy is healthy, runs marathons and has trained for Iron Man.
Scary shit.March 26, 2020 at 8:01 pm #1837177
“We have had about 10 years to prepare for this”. Sorry Bingo, but you’ve completely lost me there. No one on earth could ever foresee Corona causing so much global havoc back then. But do feel free to enlighten us as to why you think otherwise.
Up to now, this government has been playing catch-up with the more forward thinking countries. Thankfully though, the penny seems to have finally dropped. I agree with Nine, it’s only sensible to close borders. It’s time to completely shut up shop until this virus is eradicated.
The fact that it was transmitted throughout the world simply because the Chinese are partial to eating any animal alive or dead that walks, swims or flies, should be seriously questioned.
Surely, rats, mice, bats, snakes, dogs and cats should be struck off their menu until further notice! Cheers, Lenny.March 26, 2020 at 8:14 pm #1837181
The “Big Clap” was a great idea tonight at 8pm for the NHS. God Bless the NHS.March 27, 2020 at 2:19 am #1837206
Lenny just because you are fairly ignorant about it, it does not mean that there has not been plenty of people or organisations that have warned about this for a very long time…
You only have to look to one of the richest man on the planet, Bill Gates to see it for yourself, he has been warning nations about this for few years now and there have been plenty more like him.
Fact of the matter is that the population are sheep that are conditioned into not having a single independent thought. Everybody just laps up what the media tells them to, conditioned by fear into thinking the Russians are taking over, or the Chinese or that the big bad terrorist is out to get you. That stripped enough rights from you, now its the killer blow and your world will never recover.
FYI that bat thing is fear driven racist propaganda, cause if it started with a bat, it was because there was a scientist that was doing research on them and their ability to live with viruses such as covid 19.March 27, 2020 at 9:35 am #1837240
Anyone seen this video?March 27, 2020 at 8:09 pm #1837346
Come off it Bingo. Bill Gates is an extremely intelligent man, but even he was not alluding to or even aware of Covid 19 ten years ago, unless he had a crystal ball the size of Jupiter!
You are starting to come over rather condescending in your appraisal of our people in my opinion and it is unwarranted. Corona is killing people left, right and centre. Not only in the UK but all over our planet and governments everywhere are desperately trying to deal and cope with the consequences in the best way they see fit. Some better than others.
Apart from Trump, Putin and China there is no blame game and your agenda is flawed.
People everywhere need to adhere to sensible advice given in their given country. If not, make no mistake, this virus will snow-ball!
Of course people in the know are also well aware of other pandemic risks i.e. viral hemorrhagic fever, Zika virus, antibiotic resistance etc. but thankfully they are not active at present.
And like it or not, “that bat thing” is a reality. It has nothing to do with racism. The Chinese ingest rodents that are known to be the cause of Covid 19.
That said, do feel free to enjoy a plate of bat soup followed by gently stir-fried rat tails and new-born flash-fried mice. Whatever takes your fancy.
But count me out mate.
